The United States national-security establishment is vast, yet the United States has failed to meet its initial objectives in almost every one of its major, post-World War II conflicts. Of these troubled efforts, the US wars in Vietnam (1965-73), Iraq (2003-11), and Afghanistan (2001-present) stand out for their endurance, resource investment, human cost, and miscalculated decisions. Because overarching policy goals are distant and open to interpretation, policymakers ground their decisions in the immediate world of short-term objectives, salient tasks, policy constraints, and fixed time schedules. As a consequence, they exaggerate the benefits of their preferred policies, ignore the accompanying costs and requirements, and underappreciate the benefits of alternatives. In Planning to Fail , James H. Lebovic argues that a profound myopia helps explain US decision-making failures. In each of the wars explored in this book, he identifies four stages of intervention. First and foremost, policymakers chose unwisely to go to war. After the fighting began, they inadvisably sought to extend or expand the mission. Next, they pursued the mission, in abbreviated form, to suboptimal effect. Finally, they adapted the mission to exit from the conflict. Lebovic argues that US leaders were effectively planning to fail whatever their hopes and thoughts were at the time the intervention began. Decision-makers struggled less than they should have, even when conditions allowed for good choices. Then, when conditions on the ground left them with only bad choices, they struggled furiously and more than could ever matter. Policymakers allowed these wars to sap available capabilities, push US forces to the breaking point, and exhaust public support. They finally settled for terms of departure that they (or their predecessors) would have rejected at the start of these conflicts. Offering a far-ranging and detailed analysis, this book identifies an unmistakable pattern of failure and highlights lessons we can learn from it.

How Markets Fail: The Logic of Economic Calamit...
€ 9.95 *

Behind the alarming headlines about job losses, bank bailouts, and corporate greed, there is a little-known story of bad ideas. For 50 years or more, economists have been busy developing elegant theories of how markets work - how they facilitate innovation, wealth creation, and an efficient allocation of society´s resources. But what about when markets don´t work? What about when they lead to stock-market bubbles, glaring inequality, polluted rivers, real-estate crashes, and credit crunches? In How Markets Fail, John Cassidy describes the rising influence of what he calls utopian economics, thinking that is blind to how real people act and which denies the many ways an unregulated free market can produce disastrous unintended consequences. He then looks to the leading edge of economic theory - including behavioral economics - to offer a new understanding of the economy, one that casts aside the old assumption that people and firms make decisions purely on the basis of rational self-interest. Taking the global financial crisis and current recession as his starting point, Cassidy explores a world in which everybody is connected and social contagion is the norm. In such an environment, he shows, individual behavioral biases and kinks - such as overconfidence, envy, copy-cat behavior, and myopia - often give rise to troubling macroeconomic phenomena, such as oil-price spikes, CEO greed cycles, and boom-and-bust waves in housing. These are the inevitable outcomes of what Cassidy refers to as ´´rational irrationality´´ - self-serving behavior in a modern market setting. Combining on-the-ground reporting, clear explanations of esoteric economic theories, and even a little crystal-ball gazing, Cassidy warns that in today´s economic crisis, conforming to antiquated orthodoxies isn´t just misguided - it´s downright dangerous. How Markets Fail offers a new, enlightening way to understand the force of the irrational in our volatile global econ... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ralph Cosham.

Der D. FORCE 3000 RGB besitzt die starke Leistung von 3.000 mW und ist mit seinem reinen Diodenaufbau in den Farben rot, grün und blau sämtlichen DPSS Lasern überlegen. Der Strahldurchmesser beträgt 4x2 mm mit einer höchst geringen Divergenz von weniger als 1 mrad. Die rote 638 nm Diode erzielt eine markant bessere Sichtbarkeit als eine herkömmliche 650 nm Diode und macht den D. FORCE 3000 RGB zur idealen Wahl für hochprofessionelle Lasershows. Mit analoger Modulation erzeugt der professionelle Show-Laser D. FORCE 3000 RGB bis zu 16 Millionen Farbschattierungen und Aufsehen erregende, rasiermesserscharfe Grafik-Projektionen. Das hochstabile und staubdichte Aluminiumgehäuse ist zweilagig konstruiert. Es trennt die optischen Komponenten von Netzteil und Lüfter und sorgt so für eine jederzeit optimale Performance und geringsten Wartungsaufwand. Der D. FORCE 3000 RGB verfügt über einen 30 Kpps Hochgeschwindigkeits-Galvo @ 8° ILDA, sowie einen breiten 50° Scan- Bereich. Er besitzt ein ILDA-Interface mit 25-poligen D-Sub-Verbindern zur Steuerung mit diversen Softwares, sowie geräuscharme Lüfter für eine niedrige Betriebstemperatur. Zum Anschluss dienen Neutrik PowerCON Netzein- und Ausgang, ein Schlüsselschalter verhindert unbefugte Bedienung. Zum Schutz des Publikums ist der D. FORCE 3000 RGB mit einem Scan Fail Safety-System ausgestattet. Besonders durchdacht ist das gut zugängliche Beam-Alignment System. Dieses System spart Zeit und Geld, da die Kalibrierung des D. FORCE 3000 RGB mit wenig Aufwand selbst vorgenommen werden kann. Noch mehr Einsatzmöglichkeiten bietet der D. FORCE 3000 durch seine Kompatibilität zu Effekt- und Sicherheitslinsen der Firma Pangolin. Hinweis: Laserstrahlung kann für das menschliche Auge und die Haut sehr gefährlich sein. Neben vielen Vorgaben und Richtlinien zum Betrieb der Laser sind sie deshalb in Laserschutzklassen kategorisiert. Bitte beachten Sie, dass bestimmte Laser nur von Laserschutzbeauftragten betrieben werden dür
