Global Impact

Global Impact – Franz Josef Radermacher, Marianne Obermüller, Peter Spiegel / Carl Hanser Verlag, 2009, 288 pages
Why are we still so paralyzed when it comes to tackling global issues? What is all the problem awareness good for if we fail to quickly overcome our collective paralysis? It is these issues that the publication "Global Impact" deals with, revealing surprising and crucial insights into why the odds of this paralysis breaking up have recently substantially risen. The book furthermore provides a comprehensive manual to take action for a responsible globalization plan, including liberating, innovative and precise proposals for politicians, the economy and each individual in the global civil society. The clearer we, as citizens of the one world, think - on every level - about the good of the world, the more humane and sustainable we can make it. We need to and can organize a global impact, regaining the power to design our earth.

The People's New Deal – Creating a New Civilization through Social Entrepreneurship.

The People's New Deal – Patrick U. Petit – Marianne Obermüller (Eds.) / Compiled by The Goi Peace Foundation and The Earthrise Society, 2009
The People’s New Deal highlights the global movement of social entrepreneurship and some of the leading organizations that are advancing this citizen sector movement. While looking at this social trend in the context of a larger global transition humanity is currently going through, the volume also presents examples of innovative individuals that are tackling major social problems and triggering systemic change. While the New Deal in the 1930’s was elaborate and implemented by government to mitigate the economic crisis, social entrepreneurship can be regarded as a People’s New Deal, originating from the citizen sector. The People’s New Deal is a powerful initiative of the 21st century to complement governmental economic stimulus and recovery packages.

Incredibly rich – The book on money, the crisis and modern-day society (Kopie 1)

Incredibly rich – Andreas Beck und Wolf Dieter Enkelmann / November 2010, context Verlag, Augsburg

Has greed prevailed? It is not only the excesses of the banking crisis that produce astonishment. The guilty parties have made millions, and they keep making a lot of money. Goldmann Sachs is a symbol for greed, the regional German banks personify foolishness. The billions in profits and bonus payments on the one hand are the billions in losses on the other. Beyond this dazzling game of figures is the real economy. It is ordinary people who keep up the game, being "rewarded" with constantly decreasing incomes. Why this works and what distinguishes a nurse from an investment banking guy is the content of the issues dealt with in the book.
