The author regularly gives talks, seminars, and courses for executives and is very aware of their lack of understanding (or their inability to remember) simple but key financial concepts and tools. He is continually asked to recommend a simple book that helps them to refresh key financial concepts and tools. Self-contained: Other than some elementary algebra, no other previous knowledge will be necessary to understand the concepts discussed. Comprehensive: It will contain most or all topics, concepts, and tools that executives can easily forget, find hard to understand, and/or would like to know more about. Simple and easy to read: Many well-educated executives have all but forgotten their finance and are regularly put off by books that are far more academic than they need. This book will be written in a simple and conversational style. Concise with short chapters throughout: This is critical as many executives are put off by long books or never ending chapters. Essential elementary theory and many real-world examples. All concepts and tools will be illustrated with catchy and factual examples.

The need for an understanding of accounting is now even more critical than ever for lawyers practicing in many areas including securities and corporate law and litigation. In addition, over the last several years, the Financial Accounting Standards Board has made some landmark changes in the accounting rules in areas of interest to lawyers, including the accounting for mergers and acquisitions. The Second Edition of Accounting and Finance For Lawyers includes important material on such areas as accounting for stock options and derivatives and the elimination of the pooling of interests method of accounting for acquisitions. There is a discussion of the accounting implications of the use of so-called special purpose entities. Finally, a chapter on international accounting issues reflects the increasing globalization of business and accounting. As in the First Edition, the basic building blocks of accounting are covered so that the material is accessible and useful to those with any level of accounting knowledge.

"The Empire Strikes a Match in a World Full of Oil is a book about justice and about history. The history is a history of American expansionism which has evolved into a plan for world domination, seemingly a plan to make the world safe for American democracy. The plan isn't new. Nearly fifty years ago our text book on American history, taught at the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown U. by a close Kennedy advisor, was entitled Empire for Liberty. Before we proceed further however we, as Americans, need to ask 'at what price?' The price is too high, because unlike successful empires that dominate and exploit their backward neighbors, America shares world power with other nations. Even though we tower over any one of them, we cannot dominate them all. This book concludes by defining the choice America faces at this moment -- the choice between endless war against large and growing powers on the one hand and a world that has submitted to the rule of law on the other. But it is not an appeal to world government either; not a call for another layer of administration and invasive rules. It is an appeal for a world legal system in which free nations freely interact."

Ein Bullshit-Job ist eine Beschäftigungsform, die so völlig sinnlos, unnötig oder schädlich ist, dass selbst der Arbeitnehmer ihre Existenz nicht rechtfertigen kann. Es geht also gerade nicht um Jobs, die niemand machen will, sondern um solche, die eigentlich niemand braucht. Im Zuge des technischen Fortschritts sind zahlreiche Arbeitsplätze durch Maschinen ersetzt worden. Trotzdem ist die durchschnittliche Arbeitszeit nicht etwa gesunken, sondern auf durchschnittlich 41,5 Wochenstunden gestiegen. Wie konnte es dazu kommen? David Graeber zeigt in seinem bahnbrechenden neuen Buch, warum immer mehr überflüssige Jobs entstehen und welche verheerenden Konsequenzen diese Entwicklung für unsere Gesellschaft hat. Im Jahr 1930 sagte der britische Ökonom John Maynard Keynes voraus, dass durch den technischen Fortschritt heute niemand mehr als 15 Stunden pro Woche arbeiten müsse. Fast ein Jahrhundert danach stellt David Graeber fest, dass die Gegenwart anders aussieht: Die durchschnittliche Arbeitszeit ist gestiegen und immer mehr Menschen üben Tätigkeiten aus, die unproduktiv und daher eigentlich überflüssig sind – als Immobilienmakler, Investmentbanker oder Unternehmensberater. Es sind Jobs, die keinen sinnvollen gesellschaftlichen Beitrag leisten. Es sind Bullshit-Jobs. Warum bezahlt eine Ökonomie solche Tätigkeiten, die sie nicht braucht? Wie ist es zu dieser Entwicklung gekommen? Und was können wir dagegen tun? David Graeber, einer der radikalsten politischen Denker unserer Zeit, geht diesem Phänomen auf den Grund. Ein packendes Plädoyer gegen die Ausweitung sinnloser Arbeit, die die moralischen Grundfesten unserer Gesellschaft ins Wanken bringt.

Das Buch ist ein globales Phänomen. Es wurde 3,5 Millionen Mal verkauft, in rekordverdächtigen 43 Sprachen publiziert und ist auf 5 Kontinenten zum Bestseller geworden. Nun ist es in einer aktualisierten und erweiterten Auflage neu erschienen. - Der internationale Bestseller: Jetzt mit neuem Vorwort, neuen Kapiteln und aktualisierten Fallstudien - Ein Bestseller auf 5 Kontinenten - Weltweit mehr als 3,5 Millionen Bücher verkauft - In 43 Sprachen übersetzt - Ein Wall-Street-Journal-, Businessweek- und Fast-Company-Bestseller Der von Organisationen und Branchen auf der ganzen Welt hochgeschätzte Bestseller stellt alles in Frage, was wir bisher über die Voraussetzungen strategischen Erfolgs zu wissen glaubten. Der Blaue Ozean als Strategie, vertritt die Ansicht, dass ein brutaler Konkurrenzkampf nur dazu führt, dass sich die Konkurrenten in einem blutrot gefärbten Ozean um rapide schwindende Gewinnmöglichkeiten streiten. Basierend auf der Untersuchung von mehr als 150 strategischen Schachzügen (im Lauf von mehr als 100 Jahren und in mehr als 50 Branchen) vertreten die Autoren die Ansicht, dass nachhaltiger Erfolg nicht auf verschärftem Konkurrenzkampf, sondern auf der Eroberung »Blauer Ozeane« beruht: der Erschließung neuer Märkte mit großem Wachstumspotenzial. Der Blaue Ozean als Strategie präsentiert einen systematischen Ansatz, wie man Konkurrenz irrelevant macht, und legt Prinzipien und Methoden vor, mit der jede Organisation ihre eigenen Blauen Ozeane erobern kann. Diese erweiterte Auflage enthält: - Ein neues Vorwort der Autoren: Hilfe! Mein Ozean färbt sich rot. - Aktualisierungen der in dem Buch behandelten Fälle und Beispiele, indem ihre Geschichte bis in die Gegenwart weitervorfolgt wird. - Zwei neue Kapitel und ein erweitertes drittes Kapitel: Ausrichtung, Erneuerung und Red Ocean Traps. Sie behandeln die wichtigsten Fragen, die die Leser in den vergangenen zehn Jahren gestellt haben. Der bahnbrechende Bestseller stellt das bisherige strategische Denken auf den Kopf und entwirft einen kühnen neuen Weg in die Zukunft. Hier können Sie lernen, wie man neue Märkte erschließt, auf denen Konkurrenz noch keine Rolle spielt. "Das ist ein extrem wertvolles Buch." Nicolas G. Hayek, Verwaltungsratpräsident, Swatch Group "Ein Muss für Manager und Wirtschaftsstudenten." Carlos Ghosn, President und CEO, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd.

Anti–Money Laundering in a Nutshellis a concise, accessible, and practical guide to compliance with anti–money laundering law for financial professionals, corporate investigators, business managers, and all personnel of financial institutions who are required, under penalty of hefty fines, to get anti–money laundering training. Money laundering is endemic. As much as 5 percent of global GDP ($3.6 trillion) is laundered by criminals each year. It’s no wonder that every financial institution in the United States—including banks, credit card companies, insurers, securities brokerages, private funds, and money service businesses—must comply with complex examination, training, and reporting requirements mandated by a welter of federal anti–money laundering (AML) laws. Ignorance of crime is no excuse before the law. Financial institutions and businesses that unknowingly serve as conduits for money laundering are no less liable to prosecution and fines than those that condone or abet it. In Anti–Money Laundering in a Nutshell: Awareness and Compliance for Financial Personnel and Business Managers, Kevin Sullivan draws on a distinguished career as an AML agent and consultant to teach personnel in financial institutions what money laundering is, who does it, how they do it, how to prevent it, how to detect it, and how to report it in compliance with federal law. He traces the dynamic interplay among employees, regulatory examiners, compliance officers, fraud and forensic accountants and technologists, criminal investigators, and prosecutors in following up on reports, catching launderers, and protecting the integrity and reputations of financial institutions and businesses. In particular, corporate investigators will gain rich insights winnowed from the author's experiences as a New York State and federal investigator.
