Cash and Dash: How ATMs and Computers Changed Banking uses the invention and development of the automated teller machine (ATM) to explain the birth and evolution of digital banking, from the 1960s to present day. It tackles head on the drivers of long-term innovation in retail banking with emphasis on the payment system. Using a novel approach to better understanding the industrial organization of financial markets, Cash and Dash contributes to a broader discussion around innovation and labour-saving devices. It explores attitudes to the patent system, formation of standards, organizational politics, the interaction between regulation and strategy, trust and domestication, maintenance versus disruption, and the huge undertakings needed to develop online real-time banking to customers.

When business leaders, government officials, and other stakeholders come to the table in an environmental, health, or safety dispute, acrimony often results, leading to expensive and time-consuming litigation. Not only does this waste precious resources, but rarely does the process produce the best outcome for any of the parties involved. For the past five years, the authors of this volume have conducted semi-annual seminars at the MIT and at Harvard to provide business leaders and regulators with the knowledge and skills they need to more effectively handle environmental, health, and safety negotiations. Their strategy, known as the "mutual gains approach," is a proven method of producing fairer, more efficient, more stable, and wiser results. Negotiating Environmental Agreements provides the first comprehensive introduction to this widely practiced and highly effective approach to environmental regulation. The book begins with an overview of the mutual gains approach, introducing important concepts and ideas from negotiation theory as well as the theory and practice of mediation. The authors then offer five model negotiations from their MIT-Harvard Public Disputes seminar, followed by a series of real-world negotiated environmental agreements that illustrate the kinds of outcomes possible when the mutual gains approach is employed. A collection of writings by leading experts provide valuable insights into the process, and appendixes offer both instructions for conducting model negotiation sessions and analysis of actual game results from earlier seminars. This is the only prescriptive text available for the many regulatees and regulators involved in environmental regulatory negotiations each year. Anyone involved with environmental negotiation — including corporate and public sector managers, students of environmental policy, environmental management, and business management — will find the book an essential resource.
