  • Mining the (clean energy) gap

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: by Paul Bendall; Lauren Bermack
      Abstract: We may indeed need less coal in the future to create electricity. But the often-overlooked reality is that the shift to net zero will require more mining, not less. The low-emission energy systems of the future--solar and wind power, electric vehicles, and grid-scale batteries--will be highly material-intensive. And so, the mining industry's ability (or inability) to meet demand could have major implications for the cost, and ultimately the pace, of the global uptake and installation of energy transition technologies.

  • A kinder, gentler deal

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: by Theodore Kinni
      Abstract: In Split the Pie, Barry Nalebuff, the Milton Steinbach Professor at the Yale School of Management, combines logic and empathy in a new approach to negotiating. The book is based on the idea that the negotiation pie--that is, the value produced by the deal, over and above the value that the parties to the deal can create on their own--should be equally spilt. The biggest challenge to this approach is likely to be convincing the more powerful parties in a negotiation to agree to use it.
