    Picture an early scene from The Wizard of Oz: Dorothy hurries home as a tornado gathers in what was once a clear Kansas sky. Hurriedly, she seeks shelter in the storm cellar under the house, but, finding it locked, takes cover in her bedroom. We all know how that works out for her.Many investors these days are a bit like Dorothy, putting their faith in something as solid and trustworthy as a house (or, say, real estate). But market disruptions - storms - seem to arrive without warning, leaving us little time to react.

    Deniers of climate change sometimes quip that claims about global warming are more about political science than climate science. They are wrong on the science, but may be right with respect to its political implications. A hotter world, writes Andrew Guzman, will bring unprecedented migrations, famine, war, and disease. It will be a social and political disaster of the first order.

    Many take the description theory of reference for proper names to be dead in the water. Contrary to this view, Language, Names, and Information defends a version of the description theory from a perspective on language that sees words as a wonderful source of information about the nature of the world we live in. Indeed, the book is as much about the implications of this perspective for discussions of meaning and reference in general as it is for the particular topic of names.
