In 1764, Britain imposed the first of several taxes with the Sugar Act. This was followed by the Stamp Act and the Townshend Revenue Act. In 1773, the Seven Years War with France had made Britain the greatest power on earth. But the war had doubled her national debt; interest payments alone consumed 5/8ths of Britain's annual budget. To ease this burden, Britain made a fateful blunder: she decided to impose and enforce taxes upon the American colonies. In 1776, the 13 American colonies, refusing to pay unjust taxes, declared their independence from Britain. The resulting years of war are called the American Revolution. On October 19, 1781, Lord Cornwallis surrendered at Yorktown. The 13 colonies had won the war. The colonies would now become the United States of America; but their conflicts with Britain were not over. Together, the 13 colonies set out to create something new under the sun: a government that derived its just authority from the consent of the governed. To understand this unparalleled event, it is necessary to explore the character and ideas of the 18th Century Americans. Many founding fathers believed the real American Revolution was not war with Britain, but the revolution in ideas that preceded and caused the war. From 1760 to 1775, in the course of 15 years, many Americans were transformed from loyal subjects into rebels against Britain. What vision caused them to rebel? How faithfully did they follow it? 1.

Unacceptable (eBook, ePUB)
10,40 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

An explosive true crime story of fraud, corruption, greed, celebrity, and justice in the cheating scandal that shattered the myth of meritocracy. The largest college admissions scam ever prosecuted by the Department of Justice broke on March 12, 2019, sending shock waves through American schools and families. In Unacceptable, veteran Wall Street Journal reporters Melissa Korn and Jennifer Levitz trace the wiretapped calls, covert payments, and blatant deceit that brought the feds to Beverly Hills mansions and Upper East Side apartments, their residents all linked by one man: college whisperer and ultimate hustler Rick Singer. The shocking tale at the heart of Unacceptable is how, over decades, the charismatic Singer easily exploited a system rigged against regular people. Exploring the status obsession that seduced entitled parents in search of an edge, Korn and Levitz detail a scheme that eventually entangled more than fifty conspirators-a catalog of wealth and privilege that included CEOs, lawyers, real-estate developers, financiers, and famous actresses, mingling in jail cells and courtrooms. Detailing Singer's steady rise and dramatic fall, woven with stories of key players in the case, Unacceptable exposes the ugly underbelly of elite college admissions as a game with no rule book-paid-off proctors and storied college coaches turning a blind eye, helicopter parents and coddled teens spinning lies-opening loopholes and side doors into America's most exclusive institutions.

Are you overwhelmed by financial difficulties? Have you accumulated too many debts that are struggling you to death? Or have you made poor investment decisions and are now unable to enjoy money? According to a research conducted by the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), "the majority of Americans do not plan for a predictable event such as retirement or children's college education. Most importantly, people do not make provisions for unexpected events and emergencies, leaving themselves and the economy exposed to shocks". Four out of five American adults are faced with economic insecurity at some point in their lives, and the majority of Americans lack basic numeracy and knowledge of fundamental economic principle. There is also a sharp disconnection between self-reported financial knowledge and financial knowledge as measured by financial literacy quizzes. Even those who give their best knowledge score poorly on quizzes. Moreover, while many believe they are pretty good at dealing with day-to-day financial matters, in actuality, they engage in financial behaviors that generate expenses and fees, overdrawing checking accounts, making late credit card payments, or exceeding limits on credit card charges. Comparing terms of financial contracts and shopping around before making financial decisions are not at all common among the population. How would you like to change your financial life and protect your family from an economic disaster? In this book, you'll discover a step-by-step and easy-to-follow guide that reveals the secret to effectively save money, as well as the fundamental and basic economic principle everybody ought to know about. 1.

Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates: The F...

The challenges we face today are not so different from Jefferson's, and we've much to learn from his boldness and from the courage of the marines and sailors who died to protect their country. (Brian Kilmeade) This is the little-known story of how a newly independent nation was challenged by four Muslim powers and what happened when America's third president decided to stand up to intimidation. When Thomas Jefferson became president in 1801, America faced a crisis. The new nation was deeply in debt and needed its economy to grow quickly, but its merchant ships were under attack. Pirates from North Africa's Barbary Coast routinely captured American sailors and held them as slaves, demanding ransom and tribute payments far beyond what the new country could afford. Over the previous 15 years, as a diplomat and then as secretary of state, Jefferson had tried to work with the Barbary states (Tripoli, Tunis, Algiers, and Morocco). Unfortunately, he found it impossible to negotiate with people who believed their religion justified the plunder and enslavement of non-Muslims. These rogue states would show no mercy - at least not while easy money could be made by extorting America, France, England, and other powers. So President Jefferson decided to move beyond diplomacy. He sent the US Navy's new warships and a detachment of marines to blockade Tripoli - launching the Barbary Wars and beginning America's journey toward future superpower status. As they did in their previous best seller, George Washington's Secret Six, Kilmeade and Yaeger have transformed a nearly forgotten slice of history into a dramatic story that will keep you listening to find out what happens next. 1.
