New York Times best-selling author Gennita Low adds international intrigue and suspense to Liliana Hart's MacKenzie family with Wicked Hot.... A US operative/businessman has been kidnapped in Indonesia. He has a vital piece of information that would get the US government in trouble. But Indonesia is a country with over 17,000 islands, with plenty of jungles in which to hide. Off-the-books NSA fixer Kirk Ryan approaches his cousin, Archer, who works at MacKenzie Securities, for help with tracing a phone call. He also needs a translator familiar with Indonesian. Not a problem. MacKenzie Securities' troubleshooter, Jade, has plenty of connections. In fact there is a translator she knows who is in Indonesia right now. Surya, GEM contract agent, really doesn't want to do anything but lie on the heated beaches of Indonesia and just enjoy her first holiday in years. But she owes Jade Jax a favor, and her friend's calling it in. And the favor comes in a six-foot-two package of irresistible and wicked male. It's just a translation job. She would help and maybe get to know the man for a day or two. What could go wrong? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Aiden Snow.

One of The New York Times' top 10 books of 2016. Why is America living in an age of profound economic inequality? Why, despite the desperate need to address climate change, have even modest environmental efforts been defeated again and again? Why have protections for employees been decimated? Why do hedge-fund billionaires pay a far lower tax rate than middle-class workers? The conventional answer is that a popular uprising against "big government" led to the ascendancy of a broad-based conservative movement. But as Jane Mayer shows in this powerful, meticulously reported history, a network of exceedingly wealthy people with extreme libertarian views bankrolled a systematic, step-by-step plan to fundamentally alter the American political system. The network has brought together some of the richest people on the planet. Their core beliefs - that taxes are a form of tyranny; that government oversight of business is an assault on freedom - are sincerely held. But these beliefs also advance their personal and corporate interests: many of their companies have run afoul of federal pollution, worker safety, securities, and tax laws. The chief figures in the network are Charles and David Koch, whose father made his fortune in part by building oil refineries in Stalin's Russia and Hitler's Germany. The patriarch later was a founding member of the John Birch Society, whose politics were so radical it believed Dwight Eisenhower was a communist. The brothers were schooled in a political philosophy that asserted the only role of government is to provide security and to enforce property rights. When libertarian ideas proved decidedly unpopular with voters, the Koch brothers and their allies chose another path. If they pooled their vast resources, they could fund an interlocking array of organizations that could work in tandem to influence and ultimately control academic institutions, think tanks, the courts, statehouses, Congress, and, the 1.

Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject Business economics - Law, grade: 1,7, University of Lüneburg, 44 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: No closing time regulations, no purchase stress, timesaving and uncomplicated ordering, comparable prices, detailed information and direct contact to the manufacturers, these are just some advantages the Internet offers. The number of people using the internet as a shopping platform is increasing steadily - in Germany already more than 28 million people now use the Internet frequently to make purchases.1 This underlines the importance of legal matters on the electronic Highway and will contribute furthermore to the electronic drive on legal issues within the next years. All the more, it is important to strengthen the confidence of the consumer of the safety of so-called Internet contracts. This paper shall give a summary of issues concerning contracts on the Internet and its consistency with the norms of the BGB (German Civil Code). Commonly every manner of economic activity on the Internet is referred to as ecommerce. Nevertheless, one can distinguish these activities into so-called offline and online businesses. With offline business, solely the conclusion of the contract occurs electronically. An example would be the ordering of a book through the internet, however, it will still be delivered conventionally by mail. So this remains a simple sales contract with rare online-specific problems. With online business the whole performance including delivery will be conducted on the net. This presupposes when purchasing goods that the objects can be digitalized (e.g. software, music, electronic books etc.). Also in the field of services (e.g. the use of databases, Internet telephony, ticket booking, electronic trade of securities, etc.) online businesses occur. A special view will be given to the particularities of online auctions.
'The market never ceases to befuddle and beguile. These two venerable works are fixtures on the short lists for most valuable books on the securities markets, and investors continue to cherish them.' -From the Introduction by Martin S. Fridson Managing Director, Merrill Lynch & Co. Author of Investment Illusions Exploring the sometimes hilarious, sometimes devastating impact of crowd behavior and trading trickery on the financial markets, this book brilliantly combines two all-time investment classics. Extraordinary Popular Delusions and Confusión de Confusiones take us from Tulipmania in 1634-when tulips actually traded at a higher price than gold-to the South Sea 'bubble' of 1720, and beyond. Securities analyst and author Martin Fridson guides you on a quirky, entertaining, and intriguing journey back through time. Chosen by the Financial Times as Two of the Ten Best Books Ever Written on Investment Critical Praise. 'This is the most important book ever written about crowd psychology and, by extension, about financial markets. A serious student of the markets and even anyone interested in the extremes of human behavior should read this book!' -Ron Insana, CNBC 'In combining 'Extraordinary' with 'Confusion,' the result is not extraordinary confusion. Instead, with clarity, the book sears into modern investor minds the dangers of following the crowd.' -Greg Heberlein, The Seattle Times 'You will see between its staid lines (written in ye olde English and as ponderable as Buddha's navel) that, despite what the media says, nothing really important has changed in the financial markets in centuries.' -Kenneth L. Fisher, Forbes
An authoritative guide to the rise of Chinese shadow banking and its systemic implications Shadow Banking in China examines this rapidly growing sector in the Chinese economy, and what it means for your investments. Written by two world-class experts in Chinese banking, including the Chief Advisor to the China Banking Regulatory Commission and former Chairman of the Securities and Futures Commission in Hong Kong, this book is unique in providing true, first-hand perspectives from authorities within the world's largest economy. There is little widely-available information on China's shadow banking developments, and much of it is rife with disparate data, inaccuracies and overblown risks due to definitional and measurement differences. This book clears the confusion by supplying accurate information, on-the-ground context and invaluable national balance sheet analysis you won't find anywhere else. Shadow banking has grown to be a key source of credit in China, and a major component of the economy. This book serves as a primer for analysts and investors seeking real, useful information about the sector to better inform investment decisions. * Discover what's driving the growth of shadow banking in China * Learn the truth about both real and inflated risks * Dig into popular rhetoric and clarify common misconceptions * Access valuable data previously not published in English Despite shadow banking's critical influence on the Chinese economy, there have been very few official studies and even fewer books written on the subject. Understanding China's present-day economy and forecasting its future requires an in-depth understanding of shadow banking and its inter-relationship with the banking system and other sectors. Shadow Banking in China provides authoritative reference that will prove valuable to anyone with financial interests in China.
