  • Sabotage



    Financial malpractice, we’re told, is an aberration: the actions of a few bad apples deviating from the norms of a market-governed process and gaming the system. In ‘Sabotage’, political scientists Anastasia Nesvetailova and Ronen Palan blow this fiction apart, showing that sabotage is not an anomaly, but part of the business model of finance – and always has been. Abusive lending practices, misleading investors, manipulating prices, deliberately falsifying figures, cheating, obstruction, and taking advantage of ‘the dumbest person in the room’ – they’re actually the main source of profitability in finance, and the surest way to a bonus.

    Happy Moments

    From the same author that brought us ‘The Little Book of Hygge’, this book reveals the secret to filling your life with happy moments, and how to remember them for ever. Each year we are given 365 days. Some of those days pass us by without leaving a trace, and some days seem to stick in our minds for the rest of our lives. Do you remember your first kiss? Swimming in the sea on holiday? The first time you drove a car? Research has shown that when our senses are stimulated and when we are conscious of our emotions, we are more likely to recall those precious moments – which is why the butterflies in your tummy, the sun on your skin or the thrill of sitting at the wheel probably flood back to you so easily. But those happy memories don’t have to be reserved for big life events.
