Alles über die Finanzkrise und ihre dramatischen Folgen für Europa und die Welt Als die US-Großbank Lehman Brothers im September 2008 zusammenbrach, war dies der Tiefpunkt der Banken- und Finanzkrise. Und obwohl der totale Kollaps der Weltwirtschaft damals verhindert wurde, ist die Finanzkrise noch lange nicht Geschichte, wie der britische Historiker Adam Tooze zeigt. Er schildert, wie es zu dieser Krise der Finanzmärkte kam und welche dramatischen Folgen sie bis heute hat. Denn durch die Finanzkrise ist nicht nur die Stabilität Europas ins Wanken geraten, sie hat auch das Vertrauen in die Kraft der globalen Wirtschaftsordnung erschüttert – und so zum Aufstieg der Populisten beigetragen.

I have a crush on my new neighbor. The one that everyone hates. I know all the rumors in the neighborhood. Andrew Mason is rich. He’s gorgeous. He’s a recluse. He’s a genius. He’s a jerk. The sign he puts on his porch on Halloween makes all of the kids cry. Oh, and a car crash seven years ago left him in a wheelchair. He seems to think that’s going to put me off. I’m determined to get his attention, though he doesn’t want company. I can’t help it. I want to know what makes a man so beautiful and so complicated tick. I want to know what goes on in his brilliant, good-looking head. I want to know if his muscles feel as awesome as they look. I want to break down his defenses. But if I can break down Andrew’s defenses, then he can break down mine. What starts out as a battle of wits becomes… something more. Something hotter. Something neither of us expected. When two damaged people crash into each other, they either destroy each other… or they fall in love.

To celebrate her 14-year clean and sober birthday, Ferguson organises to take a R3.2 million Ferrari California out on a test drive for the day. Twenty minutes before she returns the car, she is involved in a spectacular car crash, during which she experiences a near-death collision. The crash is a catalyst for a series of life-changing events. Over the following months her long-term relationship implodes in a heart-ripping showdown of betrayal and deception. She is faced with a litany of legal and financial nightmares as a result of the Ferrari being written off, while certain members of the dog-eat-dog motoring journo industry relish in her downfall. After she admits herself to a clinic to address her meltdown, in her trademark gritty tell-it-all and often hilarious style, she interrogates the controversial pharma-whore psychiatric industry as she is diagnosed and medicated over her three-week stay. Ultimately Crashed sees Ferguson slowly coming to grips with the meaninglessness of outward material success as she embarks on a painful journey of introspection in search of intangible inner peace and self love in a crazy out of control world. It s South Africa s very own The Girl (Monk) Who Crashed (Sold) her (his) Ferrari."

In his first novel, CRASHED: The Death Of The Dollar, William Cooper explores what our government's reaction to a U.S. currency collapse would be. But he does so quite differently from most similarly themed novels. Crashed follows a reclusive mountain rancher on a journey through coming out of his shell, finding love and a family, and inadvertently becoming a part of the local community following a gesture of kindness. All set against the backdrop of the dollar losing it's value, and the government nationalizing all supply chains in an effort to keep order. This is a fast-paced read that has many reviewers calling for a sequel. Words like "thought provoking, captivating," and "gripping" are found throughout, and numerous readers express concern that it seems eerily like future history.

From New York Times Best-Selling Author K. Bromberg comes the epic conclusion of of Rylee and Colton's story... When life crashes down around us, how hard are we willing to fight for the one thing we can’t live without, each other? Life is full of moments. Big moments. Little moments. And none of them are inconsequential. Every single moment prepares you for that one instance that defines your life. You must overcome all your fears, confront the demons that chase you, and cleanse the poison that clings to your soul or you risk the chance of losing everything. Mine started the minute Rylee fell out of that damn storage closet. She made me feel. Made me whole when all I thought I could ever be was incomplete. Became the lifeline I never knew I needed. Hell yes, she’s worth the fight...but how do you fight for someone you know you don’t deserve? Love is full of ups and downs. Heart stopping highs. Soul shattering lows. And none of them are insignificant. Love is a racecourse of unexpected twists and turns that must be negotiated. You have to break down walls, learn to trust, and heal from your past in order to win. But sometimes it’s the expected that’s the hardest to hold on to. Colton has healed and completed me, stolen my heart, and made me realize our love’s not predictable nor perfect—it’s bent. And bent’s okay. But when outside factors put our relationship to the test, what lengths will I have to go to prove to him that he’s worth the fight? Whoever said love is patient and love is kind, never met the two of us. We know our love is worth it—have acknowledged that we were meant to be—but when our pasts crash into our future, will the repercussions make us stronger or break us apart?

Alexandra Franco lost her virginity and her heart to her best friend’s older brother. When he walked away without looking back, it was a lesson well learned. Indulging in another hot night with him would just compound the mistakes she made all those years ago. Besides, Deacon’s not the same boy she fell for, and she sure as hell doesn't want anything to do with the wealthy, ruthless man he's become. Deacon West knows that turning his back on Alex was a huge mistake, but he’s older and wiser now, and he has a plan to get her back in his life and hopefully keep her there. He offers to sign over the building she and his sisters use for their auto repair business if she’ll grant him a three-month, no-strings affair. He has a lot of making up to do before Alex will entrust her heart to him again. Good thing he never backs down from a challenge.
