Emerging Markets, Emerging Giants
April 22, 2007 | New York Times | By WILLIAM J. HOLSTEIN. A
NEW wave of foreign competitive pressure is beginning to ripple through
the United States economy, from companies in emerging markets like
Brazil, Russia, India and China. “We are seeing a rebalancing of the
global economy back to where it was before the Industrial Revolution,
when China and India were major powers in the world.” says Antoine van
Agtmael, author of a new book, “The Emerging Markets Century: How a New
Breed of World-Class Companies Is Overtaking the World.” The emerging
multinationals haven’t had time to establish brand names, as Sony or LG
have done, but they will compensate for that. “They are either going to
buy American companies and use their brands or develop their own brand
names."

Publishing's New Math: 14 > 13 - ISBN - Book Industry Study Group
Dec 19, 2007 | Fast Company | By: Alyssa Danigelis. Will the
publishing industry finally get its data in sync with the rest of the
world? The book-publishing business is famously anachronistic. Tom
Clarkson and his friends at the Book Industry Study Group aim to rescue
the industry from its self-perpetuated obsolescence. "Anytime you have
to do anything out of the ordinary it's an extra cost," says Clarkson,
director of supply-chain technology for Barnes & Noble.

The 60-second book
Aug 2, 1999 | TIME Vol. 154, Iss. 5; pg. 73, 1 pgs | Walter
Kirn. Thanks to a bold new publishing technology known as Print on
Demand, budding authors can publish their own book and market it through
on-line bookstores for less than $400. Details on this new technology
are presented.OD turns upside down the traditional economics of the
$27.5 billion publishing industry by allowing books to be produced and
sold in small quantities-even one at a time-almost instantly. No longer
will publishing require behemoth offset presses, hangar-size warehouses
and fleets of trucks. With POD the book is digitized and stored until it
is ordered by a customer. At that point a whiz-bang
printing-and-binding machine whirs into action, creating a slick,
high-quality paperback ready for shipping. Indeed, such machines may
soon be coming to the bookstore down the block, where they will be able
to spit out a new thriller in the time it takes to froth a cappuccino.

Barnes & Noble Challenges Amazon's Kindle
Jul 21, 2009 | Wall Street Journal pg. B.1 | by Jeffrey A.
Trachtenberg, Geoffrey A. Fowler. Publishers are placing hopes in the
transition to digital books to revive the stalled books industry, but
are also wary to dive into a technology that destroyed a once-profitable
business model for music labels. The battle to determine the future of
electronic-book retailing took a new turn Monday when Barnes &
Noble Inc., America's largest bookstore chain, opened an online
e-bookstore with more than 700,000 titles and said it has struck a
partnership with a company developing a possible competitor to
Amazon.com's Kindle e-book reader.
