|Georgescu, Peter||Capitalists, Arise!||Non-fiction||Suggested By: Other.
End Economic Inequality, Grow the Middle Class, Heal the Nation. Peter Georgescu arrived in this country as a penniless Romanian refugee and rose to become the CEO of Young & Rubicam. This is why he's so heartsick that with flat wages, disappearing jobs, and a shrinking middle class, his kind of rags-to-riches story doesn't seem possible now. But he has a message for his fellow CEOs: we're the ones who must take the lead in fixing the economy. Marshaling deeply sobering statistics, Georgescu depicts the stark reality of America today: a nation with greater wealth inequality and lower social mobility than just about any other country in the developed world. But the problem isn't that free-market capitalism no longer works--it's that it's been hijacked by shareholder primacy. Where once our business leaders looked to the needs and interests of a variety of stakeholders--employees, community members, the business itself--now they're myopically focused on maximizing their shareholders' quarterly returns.

|Gerritsen, Tess||Various - Rizzoli & Isles Series||Crime/Mystery||Suggested By: Movie/TV.
|Gerrold, David||The Martian Child||Fiction||A Novel About A Single Father Adopting A Son. The biggest question is why the story is presented in fictional form. As Gerrold explicitly states, it is based on reality, and no point seems to be served in manufacturing details, except, perhaps, that it allows Gerrold to focus on the thesis that lavish applications of love, patience and understanding (along with a bit of medication) can overcome any child's difficulties and create a marvelous father-son relationship and a successful adoptive process. Because it doesn't thoroughly address such serious potential problems as Dennis's propensity for petty theft and violence, the resulting story is less than believable.|
