Set on capturing the elusive inner workings of the European Union, Robert Menasse, one of Austria´s most creative thinkers, moved to the EU´s headquarters in Brussels for an enthralling, wine-soaked tour of supranational institutions. The resulting novel has become an international sensation, translated from German into more than 20 languages and deemed ´´the first great EU novel´´ (Politico). At the heart of a cast as diverse as the union itself is Fenia Xenapoulou, a Greek Cypriot recently ´´promoted´´ to the Department of Culture, who hopes to revamp the European Commission´s image by proclaiming Auschwitz as its birthplace with the ´´Big Jubilee Project.´´ Other tragic heroes, clever schemers, and involuntary accomplices are intricately woven, revealing the absurdities - and real dangers - of a fiercely nationalistic ´´union.´´ Mordantly funny and piercingly urgent, The Capital, the winner of Germany´s highest fiction prize, is an ´´elegantly written, beautifully constructed´´ (Die Zeit) feat of world literature. 1.

From NY Times and USA Today best-selling author Lori Ryan To keep her, he´ll have to gamble it all! When Jill Walsh´s first husband´s love for her simply fizzles and dies, Jill knows she´ll never again trust that love can last, and the pain you go through when that love dies isn´t something she´s willing to go through again. After Andrew Weston´s first love betrayed him in the most brutal way possible, he knows he might fall in love again someday, but there´s no way he´ll ever make himself vulnerable to another woman by confessing those feelings, if he does. Andrew and Jill are the two most unlikely people to fall in love, but fate has a different ending in mind for these two, and when Andrew discovers his love for Jill, he knows the only way to get her to stay with him forever is to offer her an iron-clad penalty clause in a prenuptial agreement. He stays with her forever, or he loses everything he owns. The millions he´s worked for, his property, his cars, everything. Now he just needs to hope that´s enough to hold on to Jill forever. Penalty Clause is book two of the Sutton Capital series, but it can be listened to as a standalone audiobook. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joey Pepin.

Splatter Capital shows how a popular subgenre of cinematic horror has developed a uniquely sensitive perspective on the cycles of capitalism. It argues that the emphatically messy brand of horror mobilized in gore or ´´splatter´´ films is extremely responsive to the internal contradictions that threaten the future sustainability of capitalist accumulation. And, while responding to the prospect of that end, splatter promotes an extant truth: capitalist accumulation is and always has been a nightmare of systematized bloodshed. This book provides an account of that nightmare as told through a combination of economic history and filmic analysis. The story it tells will serve as a source of both theoretical and practical knowledge for surviving the horror movie we collectively inhabit. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Thomas Judd.

Following this trend, developing countries seek to open their economies to receive foreign investments. Thus, the more developed an economy, the more active its capital market.

In addition to information that will allow you to know how and why to invest in the stock market, this content covers basic concepts of operation of stock exchanges and has a glossary of frequently used terms.
