How we can win : and what happens to us and our country if we don't / Fillion Kate

"An inspiring wake-up call from one of our great entrepreneurs and venture capitalists, who shows us ways to rescue our troubled economy, reverse brain drain--and set Canada up to truly take on the world. The Canadian economy is headed for disaster: 42% of current jobs, both blue and white collar, will be automated out of existence in the next ten years. Our currency is weak. Our productivity levels are pitiful. Our GDP is shrinking. Despite decades of costly attempts to diversify, our economy is still tied to the export of raw commodities. And raw talent. Far too many of the people who could propel us into the knowledge economy have followed the lead of Elon Musk and Uber co-founder Garret Camp and headed elsewhere to build their businesses and create thousands of jobs. Why don't our best and brightest see Canada as a land of opportunity? Because it's hard to grow world-beating companies here. Our bankers, venture capitalists and government regulators view big ideas as unCanadian. Too ambitious. Too expensive. And too threatening to the comfy status quo. Anthony Lacavera, who started his first business right out of university, disagrees. Vehemently. He says that the trouble with Canada is not that we are too small to do great things, but that we think small. If the world doesn't take us seriously, the reason is us. Through the lens of his own experience founding Wind Mobile and other Canadian success stories, he shows us that we can be a nation of big dreamers and bigger doers. Building businesses and regulatory systems that actually amplify Canadian characteristics--tolerance, humility and a capacity for teamwork, along with a certain degree of our fabled caution and decency--and then marketing those characteristics aggressively, rather than apologizing for them, is the way to go. Instead of aping Silicon Valley (which we can't beat), we need to focus and then double down on the areas in which we can win. If we find the confidence to bet aggressively on ourselves, and our future, rather than clinging to our past, we will grow a new kind of economy where being Canadian is a badge of honour--and where we can win the race to the future without leaving home, selling our souls or making the world hate us."--

Nomadland : surviving America in the twenty-first century / Bruder Jessica
Nomad land
From the beet fields of North Dakota to the National Forest campgrounds of California to Amazon's CamperForce program in Texas, employers have discovered a new, low-cost labor pool, made up largely of transient older Americans. Finding that social security comes up short, often underwater on mortgages, these invisible casualties of the Great Recession have taken to the road by the tens of thousands in late-model RVs, travel trailers, and vans, forming a growing community of nomads: migrant laborers who call themselves "workampers." Bruder tells a compelling, eye-opening tale of the dark underbelly of the American economy - one that foreshadows the precarious future that may await many more of us. At the same time, she celebrates the exceptional resilience and creativity of these quintessential Americans who have given up ordinary rootedness to survive.

Straight talk on your money : the biggest financial myths and mistakes ... and how to avoid them / Hoyes Doug

"In his thirty-year career, bankruptcy trustee Doug Hoyes has watched countless intelligent, well meaning people let their emotions get the better of them as they follow conventional financial wisdom and get into serious money trouble, often leading to bankruptcy. The truth is that, in many cases, everything you know about money is wrong. Times have changed, and what was good advice for your grandparents may be bad advice today. The world is fast moving and complicated, and the big banks and financial institutions wield more power than ever before. Consumers are at a disadvantage. How can they resist the billions of dollars the big banks spend convincing us to get another credit card, a second car loan, and a bigger mortgage? Doug Hoyes shatters conventional financial wisdom, explaining why a good credit score may be detrimental to your financial well-being, why a house is not an investment, why you should never pay a collection agent, why budgeting is a waste of time--and much more. In fact, most financial professionals will disagree with much of the advice in this book. But Everything You Know About Money Is Wrong is not simply a book that casts stones at financial glass houses. This is a book that challenges conventional wisdom, and replaces it with a fresh perspective and practical advice to help you prevent financial problems before they happen. Featuring simple stories that illustrate how conventional wisdom can lead you astray, and simple tweaks you can make to your approach to money management, this book shows you how to avoid the 22 most common financial mistakes and improve your financial health. With a seasoned expert to point you in the right direction-someone who's seen thousands of people in financial crisis, and helped them out of it-you can make informed decisions and live a debt-free, stress-free life."--
