Zero-Sum Game: The Rise of the World's Largest Derivatives Exchange Audiobook

Zero-Sum Game: The Rise of the World's Largest Derivatives Exchange

Author: Erika S. Olson Narrator: Joy Osmanski Release Date: July 2020

The Zero-Sum Game: The Rise of the Worlds Largest Derivatives Exchange and its Influence on the Global Economy offers a behind-the-scenes look at how CME Group came seemingly out of nowhere to give Wall Streets power players a run for their moneyliterally. The merger between the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) formed CME Group in mid-2007 and permanently altered the landscape of the financial services industry. CME Group develops and hosts trading of futures contracts that influence everything from the interest rate on your credit card to the cost of a cheeseburger at McDonalds to the price you pay for gas. $5 trillion is a lot of money. Its six times the value of all of the U.S. dollars in circulation. Its greater than the economies of the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and Indiacombined. Its also the value of derivatives contracts handled by CME Group, the worlds largest derivatives exchange, every day. Against the backdrop of the tumultuous (and at many times, comical) CME/CBOT merger, The Zero-Sum Game explains just how extensively futures trading affects the daily lives of consumers worldwide, whether they are directly invested in the markets or not. The book also introduces the enormous personalities responsible for bringing the derivatives industry into the spotlight, and will show how these same pioneers are still struggling to transform their exchanges from good ol boy networks to publicly-run companies. Told by Erika Olson, an insider to the merger, The Zero-Sum Game gives you insight into one of the newest and most politically-connected power players in their industry, while making the inner workings of futures exchanges accessible.

Wild Swans: Three Daughters of China Audiobook

Wild Swans: Three Daughters of China

Author: Jung Chang Narrator: Joy Omanski, Joy Osmanski Release Date: December 2011

In Wild Swans Jung Chang recounts the evocative, unsettling, and insistently gripping story of how three generations of women in her family fared in the political maelstrom of China during the 20th century. Chang's grandmother was a warlord's concubine. Her gently raised mother struggled with hardships in the early days of Mao's revolution and rose, like her husband, to a prominent position in the Communist Party before being denounced during the Cultural Revolution. Chang herself marched, worked, and breathed for Mao until doubt crept in over the excesses of his policies and purges. Born just a few decades apart, their lives overlap with the end of the warlords' regime and overthrow of the Japanese occupation, violent struggles between the Kuomintang and the Communists to carve up China, and, most poignant for the author, the vicious cycle of purges orchestrated by Chairman Mao that discredited and crushed millions of people, including her parents.

What I Told My Daughter: Lessons from Leaders on Raising the Next Generation of Empowered Women Audiobook

What I Told My Daughter: Lessons from Leaders on Raising the Next Generation of Empowered Women

Author: Nina Tassler Narrator: Amanda Carlin, Fiona Hardingham, Janina Edwards, Joy Osmanski, Madeleine Maby Release Date: April 2016

In What I Told My Daughter, entertainment executive Nina Tassler has brought together a powerful, diverse group of women-from Madeleine Albright to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, from Dr. Susan Love to Whoopi Goldberg-to reflect on the best advice and counsel they have given their daughters either by example, throughout their lives, or in character-building, teachable moments between parent and child. A college president teaches her daughter, by example, the importance of being a leader who connects with everyone-from the ground up, literally-in an organization. A popular entertainer and former child star urges her daughter to walk in her own truth, to not break glass ceilings if she yearns to nurture a family as a stay-at-home mother or to abandon a career if that's her calling. One of the country's only female police chiefs teaches her daughter the meaning of courage, how to respond to danger but more importantly how not to let fear stop her from experiencing all that life has to offer. A bestselling writer who has deliberated for years on empowering girls, wonders if we're unintentionally leading them to believe they can never make mistakes, when "resiliency is more important than perfection." Contributors include: Geena Davis, Cecile Richards, Dolores Huerta, Rabbi Sharon Brous, Peggy Orenstein, Debora Black, Ayelet Waldman, Pat Benatar, Whoopi Goldberg, Dr. Susan Love, Nancy Pelosi, Alexandra Pelosi, Marie Osmond, Dr. Juliet Garcia, Jehan Sadat, Ph.D, Joanna Kerns, Madeleine Albright, Gloria Estefan, Nannerl O. Keohane, Jennifer Dulski, Dr. Marcia McNutt, Pamela Fryman, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Brooke Shields, Laura Bush, Mona Sinha, Gloria Allred, Joy Marcus, Judy Vredenburgh, Sharon Osbourne, Beverly Johnson, Michelle King, Dr. Karen Antman, MD, Dr. Amy Antman Gelfand, MD, Mary Steenburgen, Kimberley Hatchett, Cheryl Saban, C. Noel Bairey Merz, Alex Guarneschelli, Dana Walden, Mia Hamm, Margaret Abe-Koga, Roma Downey, Chirlane McCray, Blythe Danner, Sheila Bair, Ruth W. Messinger, Norah O'Donnell, Donna de Varona, Nancy Josephson, Sukhinder Singh Cassidy, Jeanne Newman, and Christine Baranski. In a time when childhood seems at once more fraught and more precious than ever, What I Told My Daughter is a book no one concerned with connecting with a young girl can afford to miss.
