Charles H. Ferguson, who electrified the world with his Oscar-winning documentary Inside Job, now explains how a predator elite took over the country, step by step, and he exposes the networks of academic, financial, and political influence, in all recent administrations, that prepared the predators' path to conquest. Over the last several decades, the United States has undergone one of the most radical social and economic transformations in its history. Finance has become America's dominant industry, while manufacturing, even for high technology industries, has nearly disappeared. The financial sector has become increasingly criminalized, with the widespread fraud that caused the housing bubble going completely unpunished. Federal tax collections as a share of GDP are at their lowest level in 60 years, with the wealthy and highly profitable corporations enjoying the greatest tax reductions. Most shockingly, the United States, so long the beacon of opportunity for the ambitious poor, has become one of the world's most unequal and unfair societies. If you're smart and a hard worker, but your parents aren't rich, you're now better off being born in Munich, Germany, or in Singapore than in Cleveland, Ohio, or New York. This radical shift did not happen by accident. Ferguson shows how, since the Reagan administration in the 1980s, both major political parties have become captives of the moneyed elite. It was the Clinton administration that dismantled the regulatory controls that protected the average citizen from avaricious financiers. It was the Bush team that destroyed the federal revenue base with its grotesquely skewed tax cuts for the rich. And it is the Obama White House that has allowed financial criminals to continue to operate unchecked, even after supposed "reforms" installed after the collapse of 2008. Predator Nation reveals how once-revered figures like 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rob Shapiro. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rand/003086/bk_rand_003086_sample.mp3.

Chieftaincies and Decentralization in the Democ...
59,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book examines under which conditions chieftaincies can play a key role in the democratic and decentralization initiatives aiming at increasing Congolese state's legitimacy and efficiency. The author applies to the Congo Dele Olowu's analysis of the four dimensions of decentralization political, economic, administrative and financial. He comes to questioning the decentralization rhetoric in the political leaders' discourse, in light of the legislation that has been actually applied from the colonial period until now. He shows the parallel between the colonial and the post-colonial administration by emphasizing the lack of a real will to decentralize. He mentions, however, some recent noticeable signs of decentralization, particularly in the new constitution of 2006 and laws. They include a constitutional recognition of legal status to the chieftaincies, a share in the national revenue, the elections of local assemblies and accountability of the executive to these assemblies. Those changes still need, of course, to mature both in their design and their implementation. This study explores some ways in which this improvement can be pursued.

Turnaround in Indian Railways- A Study of South...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Indian Railways, the world's third largest network and one among the largest employers, has been contributing to the industrial, economic and social development of the country. It faced a severe financial crisis in 2001 which resulted in abnormal hike in freight rate. This coupled with lack of customer oriented services, led to giving up of its market share to roadways. However, certain measures taken to control cost and increase revenue brought IR from the acute financial crisis to a noticeable success which is technically known as 'turnaround'. The present study was undertaken in a situation where there has been a disagreement in respect of factors that contributed to turnaround. Research, being a fact finding enquiry, concentrates on identifying these factors.SR, the fifth largest zone in IR, with its lines spread over the southern states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu, stood an exception to the general phenomenon of increased surplus. So, the researcher makes an attempt to study to what extent the turnaround measures have improved the financial performance in SR. The book is a must read for academicians, administrators, beaurocrats, policy-makers and aspiring researchers.

Detecting Accounting Fraud - The case of Let's ...
35,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This case study focuses on the company Let's Gowex SA and the accounting fraud committed by its CEO. By analysing the company's financial statements from 2009 to 2013 with popular fraud ratios as well as examining several qualitative factors, it seeks to find recommendations on how to better protect investors and other stakeholders in the future. The objective of the analysis is to find a valid manipulation detection strategy that could prevent big-scale fraud scandals by detecting manipulations earlier. On the basis of these findings, we recommend to automatize the comparison among the performance measures of different publically listed companies. The use of the Beneish M-Score as well as the Z-value developed by Bladu et al. to assess the general risk that a company could be a manipulator is recommended. In addition to that, general performance measures of the industry should be collected and publically traded companies should be compared to their peer group regarding revenue growth, depreciation rate and share price development in a standardized way. If that analysis gives reason for concern, an in-depth analysis of qualitative signals should be conducted.

The Economics of Professional Team Sports Leagues
45,80 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book contains a collection of four independent research papers on the economics of professional team sports leagues.In Chapter 2 we will present a basic model of talent investment in a team sports league. This model may give the reader a deeper understanding of the associative character of competition. No team can improve its position in the standings without worsening the position of other teams. Since sporting and economic success are usually correlated, this rank order contest may result in destructive competition. Our analysis can explain why clubs are caught in a typical prisoners’ dilemma type of equilibrium and why clubs tend to ’overinvest’ in playing talent. The model will incorporate typical features of team sports leagues such as an endogenous league prize, additional exogenous prizes and a system of promotion and relegation.In Chapters 3 and 4 we will extend our analysis by incorporating with the clubs and the players also the consumers (fans). We will derive fan demand from a general utility function by assuming that a fan’s willingness to pay depends on the quality of the match/league. This approach will enable us to provide a full-fledged welfare analysis of a sports league. In Chapter 3 we take the currently intensive discussions of the leading European football clubs to introduce salary caps as a motivation to analyze their welfare effects. Financial disparity and spiralling wages have triggered this debate in Europe. Using a game-theoretical model of a league consisting of both small- and large-market clubs we will investigate the effect of salary caps on competitive balance, the aggregate salary payments and social welfare. In Chapter 4 we analyze the welfare effect of one of the most common means of redistribution in a sports league - gate revenue-sharing. In its simplest form, gate revenue-sharing allows the visiting club to retain a share of the home club’s gate revenues. By means of a contest model with two asymmetric clubs, we will analyze the effect of alternative gate revenue-sharing arrangements on the investment behavior, competitive balance, club profits and social welfare.In Chapter 5 we turn our attention towards the labour-market of the European football leagues and will analyze the role of transfer restrictions. Transfer restrictions have a long tradition in professional football, but have come under heavy attack in recent years. The transfer system imposed by the football governing bodies on employment relations made sure that a player could not leave his current club and sign with another club without the current club’s explicit consent. The 1995 Bosman judgement of the European Court of Justice, declaring football players to be free agents after expiration of their contracts, and the 2001 intervention of the European Commission, which, among other things, limited contract durations in football, can be interpreted as the two major steps towards restricting the application of the transfer system. We will develop a theoretical model which captures an important and widely overlooked aspect of the employment relation in professional football: the allocation of risk. Players and clubs alike do not know how the productivity of a player will develop in future periods. If risk is the key driver behind the performance uncertainty of football players then there is a potential for value creation in this industry. Risk-averse players could buy insurance against future income uncertainty when contracting with risk-neutral clubs. Our model will analyze whether risk-averse football players really benefit from less restrictive transfer systems.The book concludes in Chapter 6 with a short discussion and a summary of the main results.
