The Fox in the Henhouse: How Privatization Threatens Democracy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Privatization is one of the most important political and economic developments of our time, affecting virtually every person and state in the world. The purpose of ""The Fox in the Henhouse is to present, in clear, direct terms, an analysis of privatization that helps readers understand what is happening to them and what they can do about it. It gives people on all sides of many different privatization struggles — over hospitals, schools, sanitation, water, Social Security, the military, public lands, the postal service, national parks, prisons — the arguments that have been used to place privatization at the center of the corporate agenda and to dominate the public debate. It also offers a historical framework that allows readers to center their thinking on what it means to build a democratic society, while providing the counterarguments — and inspiration — that people need both to argue and to fight back.

Synopsis:

Research has shown that people who enjoy their work are more productive and creative and generally have higher levels of job satisfaction. Fun workplaces report high levels of team spirit and employee morale. And given today's extremely low unemployment rate, companies are under more pressure than ever to foster enjoyable work environments and retain their best employees.

301 More Ways to Have Fun at Work combines thorough research with practical hands-on tools for injecting a spirit of fun into the work environment. Each chapter includes 40 to 60 examples of how organizations have incorporated fun into the normal course of the workday. Sidebars offer humorous and interesting facts and statements about the effects of fun on workplace performance and job satisfaction. Readers also learn about useful sources that can help enhance workplace ""funativity"".
