New Business Books Corporate Fraud: The Human Factor

Maryam Kennedy and Matthew Rees, Ernst & Young LLP Corporate fraud is unlike any other risk that an organisation has to manage. It requires us to believe that we can be deceived by individuals that we know, trust and do business with – one of life’s ‘inconvenient truths.’ So, we often choose to believe many of the myths that prevail: ‘our people would not commit fraud,’ ...‘fraud couldn’t happen to us, we’re a stable organisation,’...’we would know quickly if it happened, we watch the vulnerable areas.’ Drawing on the practical experiences of fraud investigators from across the world, in this book we provide perspectives to help you identify the many guises of the ‘fraud trail,’ – taking into account cultural, technological and social factors. Maryam Kennedy is a Partner at Ernst & Young. She leads the Fraud Investigation & Dispute Services team and has led investigations in the former Soviet Republics, Africa, The Middle East, Latin America and Europe. Matthew Rees is an Assistant Director in the Fraud Investigation & Dispute Services team at Ernst & Young LLP, focusing on the latest anti-fraud technologies. NOVEMBER 2013

Europe's Hidden Potential

How the 'Old Continent' Could Turn into a New Superpower Burkhard Schwenker and Thomas Clark

What is the future for Europe? Sandwiched between the US – the sole superpower at the turn of the millennium – and China as the expected next superpower, Europe is rarely discussed as a potential leader of the 21st century. At best, it is seen as an able follower of trends set by others. At worst, it is regarded as a relic; a vast open-air museum with a rich culture, good food and limited prospects. Europe's Hidden Potential explores how an 'overlooked and underrated' continent can harness its potential to positively shape the global and economic future. As the world is looking for an alternative leader, this book shows how Europe can – and ought to – lead the way once more. Prof. Burkhard Schwenker is the Chairman of Roland Berger Strategy Consultants, where he served as CEO between 2003 and 2010. Thomas Clark is the founder of the communications and consulting firm, AmboMedia. Previously, he worked at the Austrian Houses of Parliament, the International Labor Office, the European Commission, BBC World Service, and the Financial Times Deutschland. Available Now

Management and Leadership Light Footprint Management Leadership in Times of Change Charles-Edouard Bouée

What can managers in today’s uncertain, unimaginably complex world learn from President Obama and top Chinese executives? Charles-Edouard Bouée proposes “light footprint” management – comparable to a new American military doctrine and similar to a recently emerged Chinese management style that subordinates strategy to vision and tactics. Bouée explains how conventional management methodologies, techniques and tools can be adapted to the conditions of an increasingly ambiguous and apparently unmanageable world. Charles-Edouard Bouée is President of Roland Berger Strategy Consultants, Asia, and has worked on worldwide strategy and management projects. He is the author of China’s Management Revolution: Spirit, Land, Energy. Available Now

Management from the Masters Morgen Witzel

Many of the disasters of the dotcom era stemmed from the belief that everything was changing. This book reminds us that some fundamental rules do still apply by taking readers through twenty-one imperatives derived from the thinking of great leaders and management theorists including Peter Drucker, Henry Fayol, Andrew Grove and bankers and financiers such as Thomas Gresham and Warren Buffett. This entertaining run-down of the fundamental laws, rules and principles business professionals should break at their peril is complemented by case studies that document the consequences of ignoring these key laws. Management from the Masters is a book to be read and re-read to reinforce the fundamental rules of business for all successful managers.


Morgen Witzel is Honorary Senior Fellow at the School of Business and Economics, University of Exeter where he lectures on the MBA programme. He is Editor-in-Chief of Corporate Finance Review and author of nineteen books. JANUARY 2014

Volcker: The Triumph of Persistence William L. Silber

Finalist for the Financial Times/Goldman Sachs Book of the Year 2012 Over the course of nearly half a century, five American presidents, and leaders around the world, have relied on the financial acumen and the integrity, of Paul A. Volcker to help steer the global economy through turmoil and drastic change. From the collapse of the gold standard to the inflation crisis of the 1970s, Volcker demonstrated that a determined central banker can prevail over economic turmoil – so long as he can resist relentless political pressure. As the U.S. struggled to recover from the 2008 meltdown, it called once more on the veteran banker to restore trust to the financial markets with the Volcker Rule. William L. Silber is Marcus Nadler Professor of Finance and Economics and Director of the L. Glucksman Institute for Research in Securities Markets at the Stern School of Business, New York University.

This book is the definitive insider’s guide to the UK banking crisis; the drama and characters involved in the astonishing collapse of some of the major pillars of British banking and the continuing impact on the economy, informed by those directly involved at Downing Street and the Bank of England.

What Physics, Meteorology and the Natural Sciences Can Teach Us About Economics Mark Buchanan

In this thoroughly researched and piercingly intelligent book, physicist Mark Buchanan argues that our basic assumptions about economic markets – that they are for the most part stable, with occasional interruptions – are simply wrong.

Forecast re-imagines the basics of the financial world, with consequences that affect everyone. Mark Buchanan is a former editor at Nature and New Scientist, and is the author of numerous magazine and newspaper articles internationally.

How Giving Can Save The World

Matthew Bishop and Michael Green For philanthropists of the past, charity was often a matter of simply giving money away. For ‘philanthrocapitalists’ – the new generation of billionaires who are reshaping the way they give – it’s like business. Largely trained in the corporate world, these ‘social investors’ are using big-business-style strategies and expecting results and accountability to match. Proceeding from interviews with some of the most powerful people on the planet – including Bill Gates, Bill Clinton, George Soros, Angelina Jolie, and Bono, among others – Matthew Bishop and Michael Green show how a web of wealthy, motivated donors has set out to change the world. This paperback edition includes a new foreword by Bill Clinton. Matthew Bishop is chief business writer of The Economist and head of its New York bureau. Michael Green is an expert on the relationship between government and the non-governmental sector, particularly in the field of international development. Available Now

Capitalism 4.0

The Birth of a New Economy Anatole Kaletsky

Tracing the development of capitalism from the late eighteenth century through three distinct historical phases, Kaletsky shows how at each of these transitions the existing economic order appeared fatally threatened, only for capitalism to reinvent itself and emerge stronger than before. The turning point for our most recent age of capitalism came on 15 September 2008 when Lehman Brothers collapsed, setting off market chaos which, had it not been for government bailouts and guarantees, would have toppled every bank in the Western world, an incident which set off the fourth major systemic transformation in capitalism’s history – Capitalism 4.0. In this controversial and wideranging book, Anatole Kaletsky, one of the world’s foremost economic commentators, puts recent financial events into historical and ideological perspective. Anatole Kaletsky is an economist and journalist. Kaletsky began his career in journalism writing about business and finance for the Economist and the Financial Times. Available Now

This title looks at the major risk concerns within insurance and how the industry as a whole deals with potential threats to its business in the short, medium, and long term. It will demystify how insurers cope with liquidity risk, counterparty risk, tail-event risk (catastrophe), longevity risk, and the impact of climate change.

Marketing Brand Anarchy

Brand Vandals

Stephen Waddington and Steve Earl

Managing Corporate Reputation

Stephen Waddington and Steve Earl ‘A really good book for anyone involved in

journalism, marketing or communications. Unlike so many books on the subject, it is grounded in common sense, properly analytical and supports its propositions with instructive case studies and anecdotes. It’s also well written.’


Organisations of all sizes protect their reputations fiercely, but what can they do when things get out of control? How can they cope with the challenges of new media? As the media landscape looks increasingly diverse and anarchic, individuals, organisations and governments should not waste time wondering whether they have lost control of their reputations. The simple fact is they have never had control. The question is what they can do about it now, and what they need to consider for the future.


Corporate reputations may be hard won, but in this age of social media they’re also fragile, demanding better protection than ever. With brand vandals using the Internet to launch vendettas and force an unprecedented level of engagement from organisations, a new approach is required to tackle this latest threat.

Thanks to the rise of social media, what audiences think and say about organisations has never been more critical. Steve Earl and Stephen Waddington’s Brand Anarchy examined the impact of media change and the new reputation landscape brought about by disaffected shareholders, customers and staff voicing their opinions to a global Internet audience. The authors continue the story here with the brand vandals going one step further; mobilising themselves, and the Internet, to wage war on organisations and wilfully cause lasting reputational damage.

Steve Earl is Managing Director, Europe at Zeno Group. Stephen Waddington is European Digital and Social Media Director for Ketchum.

For the organisation, engagement isn’t an option – it’s a necessity. Brand vandals are forcing a level of dialogue that organisations, public and private, have never had to contemplate before. Smart organisations are helping to define the future of modern brand communication by retooling their public relations and communications teams to truly get to grips with the challenge of engaging audiences in a 24/7 conversation that not only answers criticism, but positively rebuilds corporate reputation. Is your organisation ready for the brand vandals?

Steve Earl and Stephen Waddington draw on insight from opinionmakers and shapers such as Greg Dyke, Alastair Campbell, Mark Thompson and Seth Godin to explore how reputations can be better managed and the new challenges that the future of media may bring.
