В сянката на финансовата криза
Петер Алтмикс (съставител)
СиВас Консултинг, 2011
„Валутна конкуренция принципно е възможна. Хората определено са в състояние да боравят паралелно с няколко валути, ако осъзнаят предимствата, например ако някоя друга валута предлага по-голяма стабилност на стойността, отколкото националната. Така например в много страни от Източна и Югоизточна Европа години наред германската марка и американският долар служеха като паралелна валута и едва благодарение на тях спестяването изобщо стана възможно. Настоящата финансова криза следва да се използва за структурно-политическо осъзнаване и обрат.“ - д-р Петер Алтмикс
Българското издание на книгата „В сянката на финансовата криза“ беше представено от Петер-Андреас Бохман (Фондация за свободата „Фридрих Науман”) и Светла Костадинова (Институт за пазарна икономика) на 9 декември 2011 г.

Good To Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap and Others Don't
Jim Collins and Jerry Porras
Harper Business, 2001
Five years ago, Jim Collins asked the question, "Can a good company become a great company and if so, how?" In Good to Great Collins, the author of Built to Last, concludes that it is possible, but finds there are no silver bullets. Collins and his team of researchers began their quest by sorting through a list of 1,435 companies, looking for those that made substantial improvements in their performance over time. They finally settled on 11--including Fannie Mae, Gillette, Walgreens, and Wells Fargo--and discovered common traits that challenged many of the conventional notions of corporate success. Making the transition from good to great doesn't require a high-profile CEO, the latest technology, innovative change management, or even a fine-tuned business strategy. At the heart of those rare and truly great companies was a corporate culture that rigorously found and promoted disciplined people to think and act in a disciplined manner. Peppered with dozens of stories and examples from the great and not so great, the book offers a well-reasoned road map to excellence that any organization would do well to consider. Like Built to Last, Good to Great is one of those books that managers and CEOs will be reading and rereading for years to come. --Harry C. Edwards
