              Resources, Financial Risk and the Dynamics of Growth: Systems and society

              Resources, Financial Risk and the Dynamics of Growth: Systems and society (Hardback)

              By Pasqualino, Roberto; Jones, Aled

              Decision making processes within government and the finance sector are unable to adequately engage with the interconnectivity of environmental, economic, geopolitical, societal and technological systems, and the associated growth in systemic risk. One significant factor is the in...ability of models to account for the dependency of the world economy on natural resources and the environment. New models are needed to explore the nexus between food, energy, water and other societal challenges. Forty-two years on from The Club of Rome pioneering 'Limits to Growth' (LtG) report (informed by the World3 System Dynamics (SD) model), human development continues on an economic growth driven pathway. This book presents a new SD model to evaluate the systemic risk generated by food and energy supply trends and shocks and their interactions with the material, financial and knowledge economies, under the constraints of a finite planet. This new SD models the global economy as composed of households, firms, banks and government, and the food and the energy (exhaustible and non-exhaustible) system. It models income in the form of wages and dividends, generates consumption (both food and goods) and is constrained by the limit imposed by a finite planet. The prices of the traded materials are modelled endogenously in order to change real financial flows. Prices and their interaction with growth, inflation and inequality are assumed to be the main driver of economic failure rather than through reaching planetary limits. In summary, the SD model outlined in the book not only updates World3 and examines the Limits to Growth in today's economic system, but accurately explores potential systemic risk to the economy today. This book will be of great interest to scholars of climate change, economics, politics, international law and sustainable development.

              Powers of the Press: Newspapers, Power and the Public in Nineteenth-Century England

              Powers of the Press: Newspapers, Power and the Public in Nineteenth-Century England (Paperback)

              The power of the popular press presents all modern societies with difficulties. It is, however, a problem with a history: the hold of the press over public opinion was debated with urgency throughout the 19th century. This book looks at the ways in which individuals, pressure gro...ups, political organisations and the state sought to understand the mass communications media of the 19th century, and use them to influence public opinion and effect moral and social reform. Aled Jones addresses the problem by using three approaches: first he considers the 19th century theories of the influence of communications media on patterns of social thought and behaviour; then he examines attitudes towards the press in both high and popular culture; finally he explores the social and intellectual world of the reader, the consumer both of the press as a commodity and of the hidden moral strategies that were built into it. The tensions between Victorian moral imperatives and the operation of the free commercial market raised issues of great public concern, such as whether the mass media should be under private or public control. These tensions have dominated the way in which Britain and other western societies have thought about the newer broadcasting media, but their origins are older and more complex than studies of contemporary media acknowledge.

              Aled Jones was a choirboy with a remarkable voice, whose prodigious talent propelled him to international stardom. Before he was sixteen, he had already sold more than six million records and had become a fixture on television and radio. He has worked alongside such greats as Leo...nard Bernstein, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Sir Neville Marriner, Howard Blake, and Mike Oldfield. Some of the high points of his early career include performances at the Hollywood Bowl and the wedding of Bob Geldof and Paula Yates, as well as singing privately for the Prince and Princess of Wales. Best known as a boy soprano for his hit Walking in the Air, Aled tells the full story of this phenomenal record and the effect it had on his life. Always refreshingly honest and self-effacing, Aled reveals how he faced up to life after his voice had broken and how he carved out a new career for himself on stage, record, television, and radio. His story begins with his idyllic childhood on the Welsh island of Anglesey and his years as a chorister at Bangor Cathedral, during which his family provided wonderful support and encouragement as he rose to fame. He tells of his studies at the Royal Academy of Music and the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and delves behind the scene of some of Britain's best-know institutions, such as Songs of Praise, BBC Wales and Classic FM. Aled reveals the truth about the man behind the music in this frank, heartwarming and funny account of his life.
