Does Faith-Based Worldview Predict Confidence in College Major peter block stewardship choosing service over self interest
This study attempts to show a relationship between being spiritual and choosing a college major. Using one public research institution, this quantitative, longitudinal study used secondary data from the Cooperative Institutional Research Program from the years 2000–2011. The survey included items that asked students about their spiritual preference,their confidence in choosing a major, philosophy of life, and participation in community service. Results indicated direct effects from choosing a major and being involved in community service. The study also showed direct effects of choosing a major and developing a meaningful philosophy of life. The strongest finding in this study was the gap in students changing their major (90% of college students from this institution say that they will change their major).

Are Immigrants in Sweden Choosing Other Universities than Natives? peter block stewardship choosing service over self interest
This study investigates whether there is a difference in the reputation/status of the university immigrants and native Swedes choose. If there is a systematic difference, that could have serious consequences for the labor market outcome of the two groups. The compositions of students at two universities in Sweden are compared, Malmo University and Lund University. The objective is to investigate whether there are more immigrants, first- and/or second generation, studying at Malmo University compared to Lund University. The results show that there are differences between the two groups that can not be explained by minimum grades of admission or pre-market factors. The findings of the study raise more questions than they answer. Hopefully, it can inspire researchers or students to conduct more research on what causes the differences between the two groups and if similar results could be found using other univerisities. Also, the study should be of interest for those who strive after ethnical and cultural diveristy at any school or university

Peter  Nolan Is China Buying the World? peter block stewardship choosing service over self interest
China has become the world's second biggest economy and its largest exporter. It possesses the world's largest foreign exchange reserves and has 29 companies in the FT 500 list of the world's largest companies. ‘China's Rise' preoccupies the global media, which regularly carry articles suggesting that it is using its financial resources to ‘buy the world'. Is there any truth to this idea? Or is this just scaremongering by Western commentators who have little interest in a balanced presentation of China's role in the global political economy? In this short book Peter Nolan – one of the leading international experts on China and the global economy – probes behind the media rhetoric and shows that the idea that China is buying the world is a myth. Since the 1970s the global business revolution has resulted in an unprecedented degree of industrial concentration. Giant firms from high income countries with leading technologies and brands have greatly increased their investments in developing countries, with China at the forefront. Multinational companies account for over two-thirds of China's high technology output and over ninety percent of its high technology exports. Global firms are deep inside the Chinese business system and are pressing China hard to be permitted to increase their presence without restraints. By contrast, Chinese firms have a negligible presence in the high-income countries – in other words, we are ‘inside them' but they are not yet ‘inside us'. China's 70-odd ‘national champion' firms are protected by the government through state ownership and other support measures. They are in industries such as banking, metals, mining, oil, power, construction, transport, and telecommunications, which tend to make use of high technology products rather than produce these products themselves. Their growth has been based on the rapidly growing home market. China has been unsuccessful so far in its efforts to nurture a group of globally competitive firms with leading global technologies and brands. Whether it will be successful in the future is an open question. This balanced analysis replaces rhetoric with evidence and argument. It provides a much-needed perspective on current debates about China's growing power and it will contribute to a constructive dialogue between China and the West.
