About the author

  • Mark Blyth explains through a very interesting examination of intellectual and natural history the idea of austerity. A very dangerous idea, indeed, that affects us all. Throughout the book, Blyth shows that there is not a single case of the country that would succeed in reducing its debt or solving the crisis by playing by the austerity instruction sheet rules, what else in securing peace and prosperity through austerity....

  • Review by Marko Savić of the James Lovelocks's book The ages of Gaia: A biography of our living earth. Lovelock's second edition of The ages of Gaia is a response to the criticism of his Gaia theory, to the recognition of which he had to wait for 36 years. As a proud independent scientist, Lovelock followed his scientific instincts and intuition which proved him right, in the end. A remarkable story of an inventor turned into a scientist and a great read in an accessible format. James Loveloc...

  • Review by Marko Savić of the Mikael Colville-Andersen's book Copenhagenize: The Definitive Guide to Global Bicycle Urbanism. A modern view of urban spaces where significantly more space should be allocated to bicycles (again). It is not a question of which came first, the chicken or the egg, in terms of how to achieve a higher share of cycling. It's about infrastructure, stupid, If I may paraphrase Bill Clinton's famous slogan. Mikael Colville-Andersen writes very radically, but based on numb...

  • Bijker was, according to his own statement in the book, drawn to the science-technology-society (STS) movement already back in the 1970s. The book itself was published in 1995 by the MIT Press. While Bikers was drawn to the STS movement because of its goal to “enrich the curricula of both universities and secondary schools by offering new ways to explore issues such as the risks of nuclear energy, the proliferation of nuclear arms, and environmental degradations”, I was drawn to STS and actor-ne...

  • The first thing that caught my attention was its title. Why the history of ‘development’, why not a history of ‘sustainable development’, that is such a buzzword these in last decades. After reading this book, I’m actually convinced that my subject at the doctoral program should use the word ‘development’ and not ‘sustainable development’. ...

  • The mission of this book, for which it is really hard to say that it is only a business book, is to: "make a difference in shaping organizations and leaders who consider broader responsibilities than the balance sheet." According to authors, to achieve a funky organization we must have the gifts and guts to imagine and work wonders. All this implies risk - total risk - and, at the end of the day, our personal risk. Yes, personal risk. When we wake up next day, we should remind ourselfs that b...

  • Thinking, Fast and Slow is the book of the Nobel Prize winner Daniel Kahneman. My rating of the book is 4 out of 5 stars. Short review presents the psychodrama with the two characters, Sistem 1 and Sistem 2. Book shows us, that it’s easier to recognize other people’s mistake than our own, among many other very useful cases and examples. For business, for study and our relationships. Did you know that the formula for marital stability is simply the frequency of lovemaking minus frequency of qua...

  • Background Decisions seems to be the key not only to software and product design but to the prosperity of the whole nations. Why poor nations “get it wrong” was the questions that Robinson and Acemoğlu asked to explain the world inequality. They realised that economics needs “to understand how different types of policies and social arrangements affect economic incentives and behaviour”. Meaning that economics cannot assume that political problems are solved (2013: 68-69)....
