Many people who are interested in business never learn more than the basics because they are either intimidated by the complexity of the business lexicon or they have never been exposed to the common features and principles that form the geography of the business world. Encyclopedia of American Business is an easy-to-use guide to the nuts and bolts of business jargon, explaining difficult ideas in straightforward language. Designed especially for non-specialist, students, and general readers, the encyclopedia helps novices understand the complex and sometimes confusing concepts and terms that are used in business. Five general areas of business are covered: accounting, banking, finance, marketing, and management. Terms, concepts, and associations that one is most likely to encounter in business are the focus of the volume, making it a great place to start learning about how businesses operate and what the primary and different features of specific business-related functions or ideas mean. Entries include annual report, balanced budget, capital, deflation, exchange rate, joint ventures, marketing concept, mutual funds, profit sharing, and zero-sum game.

Die traurige Geschichte der Brüder Grossbart

Zu behaupten, die Brüder Grossbart seien grausame Räuber, wäre sogar in den Ohren des schlimmsten Wegelagerers untertrieben. Und sie als Schweine zu bezeichnen, wäre eine Beleidigung selbst für den stinkendsten Keiler. Sie waren Grossbarts durch und durch und in vielen Ländern sprach man ihren Namen mit Schrecken aus. Gleichwohl waren sie nicht so widerwärtig wie ihr Vater oder so durchtrieben wie ihr Großvater, nein, die Brüder waren schlimmer. Manchmal kann das Blut eines Geschlechts binnen einer Generation böse werden, oder sich im Laufe der Zeit in etwas wahrhaft Böses verwandeln und das war bei den grässlichen Zwillingen Hegel und Manfried der Fall...

Associated Ship and South African Admiralty Jurisdiction

Release On

The Admiralty Jurisdiction Regulation Act 105 of 1983 was a radical and far-reaching, as well as overdue, modernisation of South African admiralty law. Described as 'bold, innovative and comprehensive', it introduced - for the first time anywhere in the world - the provisions enabling an action to be pursued by way of the arrest of an associated ship rather than the ship in respect of which the claim lay. This work, by one of South Africa's pre-eminent shipping lawyers, analyses the nature of this novel action. That involves a review of how the jurisdiction came about; its nature and impact; the problems to which it gives rise and the making of some modest suggestions concerning the road ahead.
