God does not appear in the modern market. For most economists this is as it should be. It is in no way necessary, according to modern economic theory, to consider God when thinking about economy. Indeed, the absence of God in economic matters is viewed as necessary to the great advances in modern economy. The difficulty with modern market economies, however, is that human livelihood is also left out of the theory and practice of the market economy. ?"I propose to bring the church's teaching about God, the doctrine of the Trinity, to bear on the masked connections between God and economy. I will treat the Trinity as the way of understanding what the Bible calls the 'economy of God.'?

For more than 25 years, Pocket World in Figures has been the indispensable handbook on the state of the world, covering demographics, industry, politics, geography, culture and more. Where else would you find out, in a single volume, that Zambia is the most entrepreneurial country on earth, that Qatar uses the most energy per head of population, and the Virgin Islands has the fourth highest murder rate of any region in the world? The new edition includes data from over 180 countries, presented in a series of rankings and country profiles. Updated, revised and expanded each year to include new rankings and features, it also includes detailed statistical profiles of more than 65 of the world's major economies, the euro area and the world itself. And, once again, the 2020 edition will showcase the Economist's strength in data journalism by including charts and graphs, and will invite readers to test their knowledge with its world rankings quiz.

The growth that companies can achieve from their operations in home and developed world markets has for many years been modest, with the real opportunities to take a business to a higher level existing in identifying and exploiting emerging market opportunities. The Economist Corporate Network has for many years now been one of the leading authorities advising firms on how to make the most of the opportunities that emerging markets present and avoid the mistakes that so many companies make with disastrous results. This book, written and edited by the Corporate Network team is in two parts: - Part one examines new approaches to business in emerging market: what you need to think about, the various risks and how to get your approach right - Part two is aimed at helping firms prioritise emerging markets by giving a review of the different markets from the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, india and China) to the emerging economies of Eastern Europe, Asia and Africa Using the expertise built up over the years by The Economist Corporate Network team and the experiences of the hundreds of companies they have worked with, there is no more useful guide to getting to grips with the opportunities that emerging markets offer and how to take advantage of them.
