In Trumponomics, conservative economists Stephen Moore and Arthur B. Laffer offer a well-informed defense of the president's approach to trade, taxes, employment, infrastructure, and other economic policies.

Very interesting and one of the few books that protect and support President Trump. Interesting and well explained economical decisions pro and against in different moments of Trump Presidency. The author is one of the most respected of course, but the way him (and the other economists that doesnt agree with him for that matter) put the questions of how US will keep its superpower status is wrong on my point of view. US economy have to invent itself and be strong at home first, and only than can care to compare in the world. A happy and wealthy US citizen should be the aim of the economy. Than the status should follow. By only competing with words and trade tariffs may create problems for a chinese or europian citizen
but will not help (in contrary will hurt) the US citizen.

For the first time, the full, explosive record of the unthinkable: how a US president compromised American foreign policy in exchange for the promise of future business and covert election assistance.

The Mongol army led by Genghis Khan subjugated more lands and people in 25 years than the Romans did in 400. In nearly every country the Mongols conquered, they brought an unprecedented rise in cultural communication, expanded trade, and a blossoming of civilization.

The history of one of the founders of today civilization. One of the less known and unjustly blamed for problems and phenomena that have nothing to do with him. The first leader that made sure nobody is above the law. Someone who brought german miners in china and chinese doctors in germany. The first leader who didnt believe on war slaves and the one who introduced diplomatic immunity!
Was his son the one that introduced the paper money so the trade on which his father invested so much can evolve freely. An example for many leaders today.
Books can lie. But places and work done never lie.
Is nice to see how the history evolve from generations to generations. Of course is not true for Albania where the story began with Rilindjen!

At the end of the 1980s, when the Cold War ended, many, including former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, believed that democracy had triumphed politically once and for all. Yet nearly 30 years later, the direction of history no longer seems certain. A repressive and destructive force has begun to reemerge on the global stage - sweeping across Europe, parts of Asia, and the United States - that to Albright, looks very much like fascism.

E kam shijuar kete liber shume. Dhe sdi pse as vete. Ishte nje kenaqesi ne thelb perverse. Pa e filluar e dija qe do te gjeja ne cdo faqe daj. Ne cdo personalitet.

Most books about the history of humanity pursue either a historical or a biological approach, but Dr. Yuval Noah Harari breaks the mold with this highly original book. From examining the role evolving humans have played in the global ecosystem to charting the rise of empires, Sapiens integrates history and science to reconsider accepted narratives, connect past developments with contemporary concerns, and examine specific events within the context of larger ideas.
