  • Political Tribes

    The bestselling author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, Yale Law School Professor Amy Chua offers a bold new prescription for reversing our foreign policy failures and overcoming our destructive political tribalism at home. ,Humans are tribal. ??We need to belong to groups. ??In many parts of the world, the group identities that matter most ??? the ones that people will kill and die for ??? are ethnic, religious, sectarian, or clan-based. ??But because America tends to see the world in terms of nation-states engaged in great ideological battles ??? Capitalism vs. Communism, Democracy vs. Authoritarianism, the ???Free World??? vs. the ???Axis of Evil??? ??? we are often spectacularly blind to the power of tribal politics. ??Time and again this blindness has undermined American foreign policy. ,In the Vietnam War, viewing the conflict through Cold War blinders, we never saw that most of Vietnam???s ???capitalists??? were members of the hated Chinese minority. Every pro-free-market move we made helped turn the Vietnamese people against us. In Iraq, we were stunningly dismissive of the hatred between that country???s Sunnis and Shias. ??If we want to get our foreign policy right ??? so as to not be perpetually caught off guard and fighting unwinnable wars ??? the United States has to come to grips with political tribalism abroad.,Just as Washington???s foreign policy establishment has been blind to the power of tribal politics outside the country, so too have American political elites been oblivious to the group identities that matter most to ordinary Americans ??? and that are tearing the United States apart. ??As the stunning rise of Donald Trump laid bare, identity politics have seized both the American left and right in an especially dangerous, racially inflected way. ??In America today, every group feels threatened: whites and blacks, Latinos and Asians, men and women, liberals and conservatives, and so on. There is a pervasive sense of collective persecution and discrimination. ??On the left, this has given rise to increasingly radical and exclusionary rhetoric of privilege and cultural appropriation. On the right, it has fueled a disturbing rise in xenophobia and white nationalism.,In characteristically persuasive style, Amy Chua argues that America must rediscover a national identity that transcends our political tribes. ??Enough false slogans of unity, which are just another form of divisiveness. It is time for a more difficult unity that acknowledges the reality of group differences and fights the deep inequities that divide us.

  • The Only Game in Town

Beginning with their response to the 2008 global crisis, El-Erian explains how and why our central banks became the critical policy actors???and, most important, why they cannot continue is this role alone.

  • The Undoing Project

    How a Nobel Prize???winning theory of the mind altered our perception of reality.,Forty years ago, Israeli psychologists Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky wrote a series of breathtakingly original studies undoing our assumptions about the decision-making process. Their papers showed the ways in which the human mind erred, systematically, when forced to make judgments in uncertain situations. Their work created the field of behavioral economics, revolutionized Big Data studies, advanced evidence-based medicine, led to a new approach to government regulation, and made much of Michael Lewis???s own work possible. Kahneman and Tversky are more responsible than anybody for the powerful trend to mistrust human intuition and defer to algorithms.,The Undoing Project is about a compelling collaboration between two men who have the dimensions of great literary figures. They became heroes in the university and on the battlefield???both had important careers in the Israeli military???and their research was deeply linked to their extraordinary life experiences. Amos Tversky was a brilliant, self-confident warrior and extrovert, the center of rapt attention in any room; Kahneman, a fugitive from the Nazis in his childhood, was an introvert whose questing self-doubt was the seedbed of his ideas. They became one of the greatest partnerships in the history of science, working together so closely that they couldn???t remember whose brain originated which ideas, or who should claim credit. They flipped a coin to decide the lead authorship on the first paper they wrote, and simply alternated thereafter.,This story about the workings of the human mind is explored through the personalities of two fascinating individuals so fundamentally different from each other that they seem unlikely friends or colleagues. In the process they may well have changed, for good, mankind???s view of its own mind.
