David Rockefeller’s eldest son David Jr. and his wife Susan, along with Jonathan Rendell, Deputy Chairman of Christie’s Americas, discuss the recent, record-breaking successful Rockefeller family auction hosted by Christie's New York, as well as continuing legacy of the Rockefeller family’s philanthropy.

Who really founded America, and why? And when? And what does "founding" really mean when it comes to a country or society? Was it the Pilgrims who founded America in 1620? Not really. Was it all about religious freedom as we've been taught? Not exactly. The focus by Europeans on America started as early as 1550, and developed through more than seventy years of high-risk commercial ventures, driven primarily by an amazing group of English merchants, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, technologists, mariners, and artists. Why does it matter who the original makers of America were? Because what they learned in the process we need more of today: shared purpose, big imagination, and opportunity for all. John Butman writes and speaks about business as a social science and is co-author of NEW WORLD, INC.: The Making of America by England's Merchant Adventurers. Get the book here: https://goo.gl/zy5BSp

From a former Wall Street insider and author of All the Presidents' Bankers, a searing exposé of the collusion between public and private banks as they seek to control global markets and dictate economic policy. Central banks and institutions like the IMF and the World Bank are overstepping the boundaries of their mandates by using the flow of money to control global markets and dictate economic policy both at the domestic and global level. These public institutions have become so dependent on funding from private banking and the revolving door between the two worlds is so smooth that public and private banks are effectively working toward the same goals.

Patty McCord – Netflix’s former Chief Talent Officer comes to Google to talk about her new book, "Powerful: Teams, Leaders and the Culture of Freedom and Responsibility." When it comes to recruiting, motivating and creating great teams, Patty McCord says most companies have it all wrong. McCord helped create the unique and high performing culture at Netflix, where she was chief talent officer. She takes what she learned there and elsewhere in Silicon Valley and spells it out in her new book, Powerful. In her own irreverent voice, McCord promotes radical honesty at the workplace, saying good bye if they don’t fit the emerging needs of a company, and motivating employees with challenging work, not promises, crazy perks and, bonus plans. McCord argues that the old standbys of corporate HR departments -- annual performance reviews, retention plans, employee empowerment and engagement programs – often end up being a colossal waste of time and resources. In the book, she offers her road-tested advice for creating a culture of high performance and profitability. Patty McCord served as Chief Talent Officer of Netflix for fourteen years and helped create the Netflix Culture Deck. Since it was posted on the web, the Culture Deck has been viewed more than 15 million times and Sheryl Sandberg has said that it “may be the most important document ever to come out of Silicon Valley.” Currently, Patty coaches and advises a small group of companies and entrepreneurs on culture and leadership. She also speaks to groups and teams around the world. Patty’s book “Powerful. Teams, Leaders and the Culture of Freedom and Responsibility” will be published in the fall of 2017.

Glen Weyl: "Radical Markets: Uprooting Capitalism & Democracy for a Just Society" | Talks at Google Glen Weyl: "Radical Markets: Uprooting Capitalism & Democracy for a Just Society" | Talks at Google
1 week ago En
Many blame today's economic inequality, stagnation, and political instability on the free market. The solution is to rein in the market, right? Radical Markets turns this thinking — and pretty much all conventional thinking about markets, both for and against — on its head. The book reveals bold new ways to organize markets for the good of everyone. It shows how the emancipatory force of genuinely open, free, and competitive markets can reawaken the dormant nineteenth-century spirit of liberal reform and lead to greater equality, prosperity, and cooperation. Eric Posner and Glen Weyl demonstrate why private property is inherently monopolistic, and how we would all be better off if private ownership were converted into a public auction for public benefit. They show how the principle of one person, one vote inhibits democracy, suggesting instead an ingenious way for voters to effectively influence the issues that matter most to them. They argue that every citizen of a host country should benefit from immigration—not just migrants and their capitalist employers. They propose leveraging antitrust laws to liberate markets from the grip of institutional investors and creating a data labor movement to force digital monopolies to compensate people for their electronic data. Only by radically expanding the scope of markets can we reduce inequality, restore robust economic growth, and resolve political conflicts. But to do that, we must replace our most sacred institutions with truly free and open competition—Radical Markets shows how. Moderated by Hal Varian. Get the book: https://goo.gl/kfASr6

Tom Miller: "The Philosopher's Flight" | Talks at Google Tom Miller: "The Philosopher's Flight" | Talks at Google
3 weeks ago En
The Philosopher's Flight, the thrilling debut from ER doctor turned novelist Tom Miller, is an epic historical fantasy set in a World-War-I-era America where magic and science have blended into a single extraordinary art. Tom demonstrates the science of philosophy and discusses the magical world of the Philosopher's Flight. About The Philosopher's Flight: Eighteen-year-old Robert Weekes is a practitioner of empirical philosophy—an arcane, female-dominated branch of science used to summon the wind, shape clouds of smoke, heal the injured, and even fly. Though he dreams of fighting in the Great War as the first male in the elite US Sigilry Corps Rescue and Evacuation Service—a team of flying medics—Robert is resigned to mixing batches of philosophical chemicals and keeping the books for the family business in rural Montana, where his mother, a former soldier and vigilante, aids the locals. When a deadly accident puts his philosophical abilities to the test, Robert rises to the occasion and wins a scholarship to study at Radcliffe College, an all-women’s school. At Radcliffe, Robert hones his skills and strives to win the respect of his classmates, a host of formidable, unruly women. Robert falls hard for Danielle Hardin, a disillusioned young war hero turned political radical. However, Danielle’s activism and Robert’s recklessness attract the attention of the same fanatical anti-philosophical group that Robert’s mother fought years before. With their lives in mounting danger, Robert and Danielle band together with a team of unlikely heroes to fight for Robert’s place among the next generation of empirical philosophers—and for philosophy’s very survival against the men who would destroy it. In the tradition of Lev Grossman and Deborah Harkness, Miller writes with unrivaled imagination, ambition, and humor. THE PHILOSOPHER’S FLIGHT is both a fantastical reimagining of American history and a beautifully composed coming-of-age tale for anyone who has ever felt like an outsider.

George S. Yip: "China's Next Strategic Advantage: From Imitation to Innovation" | Talks at Google George S. Yip: "China's Next Strategic Advantage: From Imitation to Innovation" | Talks at Google

A book for everyone who does business with China or in China. The history-making development of the Chinese economy has entered a new phase. China is moving aggressively from a strategy of imitation to one of innovation. Driven both by domestic needs and by global ambition, China is establishing itself at the forefront of technological innovation. Western businesses need to prepare for a tidal wave of innovation from China that is about to hit Western markets, and Chinese businesses need to understand the critical importance of innovation in their future. Experts George Yip and Bruce McKern explain this epic transformation and propose strategies for both Western and Chinese companies. This book is for everyone who does business with China or in China, or is interested in the development of the world's fastest-growing economy. Western CEOs can learn from Chinese companies and can create an effective innovation process in China, for China and the world. Chinese CEOs can benefit from understanding the strategies of their peers as they strive to enter foreign markets. And all Western businesses should prepare for disruption from their new competitors. Yip and McKern provide case studies of successful firms, outline ten ways in which the managerial and innovative capabilities of these firms differ from those of Western firms, and describe how multinationals doing business in China can become part of the Chinese ecosystem of new knowledge and technology. Yip and McKern argue that these innovation capabilities will be the basis for creating world-class products and services to meet the challenges of a new era of global competition.'
