RRP $488.99

International debt relief continues to be a highly controversial subject. Although many heavily indebted poor countries have received large amounts of debt relief over the past quarter of a century, it doesn't appear to be enough. This book examines the impact of international debt relief efforts since 1990. It assesses whether the various debt relief modalities have enhanced economic growth in eight highly indebted countries in Latin America and Africa.

The book includes eight country studies, four from Latin America and four from Africa, a literature survey, econometric study and a study of the debt relief policies.

Showing that the basic weaknesses of the international aid and debt system revealed by the study have still not been solved, the author draws on her years of experience to suggest ways of moving forward.

An award-winning environmental activist and social entrepreneur exposes the link between our financial and environmental crises

For decades, politicians and business leaders alike told the American public that today's challenge was growing the economy, and that environmental protection could be left to future generations. Now in the wake of billions of dollars in costs associated with coastal devastation from Hurricane Sandy, rampant wildfires across the West, and groundwater contamination from reckless drilling, it's becoming increasingly clear that yesterday's carefree attitude about the environment has morphed into a fiscal crisis of epic proportions.

Amy Larkin has been at the forefront of the fight for the environment for years, and in Environmental Debt she argues that the costs of global warming, extreme weather, pollution and other forms of "environmental debt" are wreaking havoc on the economy. Synthesizing complex ideas, she pulls back the curtain on some of the biggest cultural touchstones of the environmental debate, revealing how, for instance, despite coal's relative fame as a "cheap" energy source, ordinary Americans pay $350 billion a year for coal's damage in business related expenses, polluted watersheds, and in healthcare costs. And the problem stretches far beyond our borders: deforestation from twenty years ago in Thailand caused catastrophic flooding in 2011, and cost Toyota 3.4 percent of its annual production while causing tens of thousands of workers to lose jobs in three different countries.

To combat these trends, Larkin proposes a new framework for 21st century commerce, based on three principles: 1) Pollution can no longer be free; 2) All business decision making and accounting must incorporate the long view; and 3) Government must play a vital role in catalyzing clean technology and growth while preventing environmental destruction. As companies and nations struggle to strategize in the face of global financial debt, many businesses have begun to recognize the causal relationship between a degraded environment and a degraded bottom line. Profiling the multinational corporations that are transforming their operations with downright radical initiatives, Larkin presents smart policy choices that would actually unleash these business solutions to many global financial and environmental problems.

Provocative and hard-hitting, Environmental Debt. sweeps aside the false choices of today's environmental debate, and shows how to revitalize the economy through nature's bounty.

Get relief - Creative Relief!

Creative Relief coloring books are for kids, grown-ups and anyone else in need of coloring therapy. Even if you aren't stressed and just need a little color in your life, Creative Relief coloring books offer a variety of designs and images to color, ranging from simple open patterns to intricate and puzzling coloring challenges.

Features you get in Creative Relief coloring books:

A matte-finish cover to reduce visibility of exterior scratches and greasy fingerprints. Coloring frequently involves snacking. No judging.

A low page count per book and a creased cover make it easier to open the book flat for coloring.

White interior paper to let the true hue of the colors you choose fill the page. Baby pink shouldn't look like baby puke.

60# interior paper weight, not traditional coloring book pulp/newspaper. This provides a stronger surface for crayons and colored pencils. However, some markers and paint may bleed through.

Single-sided pages no pictures on the back and a blackened page back means no damage to the next piece of art from bleed through. This also allows for art to be removed (for framing, making paper airplanes, lining the bird cage, whatever) without missing-out on the next art piece.

No double page layouts and space from the interior binding so the whole picture can easily be colored.

A blank testing page specifically for testing your coloring mediums and hues before applying. No more test slashes and dots on the page of your art!

A bleed through page to use with mediums like markers and paint that may bleed.
