Richard Reeves, John Knell

Authors:
Adrian Slywotzky, Karl Weber

Demand is one of the few economic terms almost everyone knows. Demand drives supply. When demand rises, it stimulates growth - jobs are created, the economy flourishes and society thrives. So goes the theory. It sounds simple, yet almost no one really understands demand, including the business owners, company leaders and policy makers who try to stimulate and satisfy it. DEMAND is a book with breakout general non-fiction potential which searches for clues as to where demand really comes from, and why, and how we might control it.

Overconnected

William H. Davidow
Authors:
William H. Davidow

In Feb 2006, a Danish newspaper printed twelve highly provocative caricatures of the prophet Muhammad. The drawings landed on the internet and quickly circled the globe. As a direct result, riots ensued and at least 139 people died. This is just one example of overconnection.The consequences of an over-connected world cannot be ignored. In this important book, William H. Davidow takes a highly pragmatic approach by recognising that the digital clock cannot be turned back in terms of ubiquitous connectivity, but urges that caution and forethought is applied to the systems we build in the future. Davidow identifies four distinct levels of connection: Underconnected, Interconnected, Highly Connected and Overconnected. Highly Connected is the ideal state we must strive for and avoid spilling into Overconnected.
