Bank Holiday
45,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A bank holiday is a public holiday in both the United Kingdom and Ireland. There is some automatic right to time off on these days, although the majority of the population not employed in essential services (e.g. utilities, fire, ambulance, police, health-care workers, London Underground) receive them as holidays, those employed in essential services usually receive extra pay for working on these days. Bank holidays are often assumed to be so called because they are days upon which banks are shut, but this is not in fact the case. Some of the assumed bank holidays are days on which the banks are shut but are not, in fact, a bank holiday (e.g. Good Friday and Christmas Day). Legislation does not allow certain payments to be deferred to the working day.

In Love-Hate with the United Nations?

On the one hand, the United States is “Number One” as contributor to the UN regular budget as well as to the budgets of the UN peacekeeping operations. On the other hand, the United States is also the largest debtor caused by either partially or fully deferred payments. This leads to a vicious circle: Large amounts of unpaid assessed contributions cause tremendous administrative difficulties for the programme budgeting activities of the UN. Also, many UN Specialized Agencies suffer under the US financial behaviour. The United States is in favour of shifting from assessed to voluntary contributions. Since most of them are restricted to specific projects or countries, this would imply that the US as the most important donor of voluntary contributions would also become the dominant decision-maker in the UN. The author analyses the funding behaviour of the United States over the last decades and shows that financial leverages are an inherent policy tool of the US vis-à-vis the UN.

Infrastructure Development & the Role of Public...
200,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Infrastructure is generally defined as the physical framework of facilities through which goods and services are provided to the public. Its linkages to the economy are multiple and complex, because it affects production and consumption directly, creates positive and negative spillover effects (externalities), and involves large flows of expenditure. Generically, it has the following distinct components: (a) energy (electricity, coal, petroleum and natural gas, renewable energy sources and atomic power for civil use), (b) transport (railways, roads and road transport, ports and shipping and civil aviation), (c) telecommunications and information technology, (d) special economic zones (SEZs), (e) harnessing water resources and irrigation, (f) rural infrastructure (housing, transport, communications, water supply and sanitation) and (g) urban infrastructure (housing, transport, slum clearance/development, water supply, sanitation and sewerage and solid waste management). Till recently, as the government implemented and financed the bulk of infrastructure outlays, all the attendant project risks were also borne by the government. Resource mobilisation, mainly domestic, was through pre-emption of funds from banks and insurance companies backed by issue of dated securities. Foreign funds -- mainly in the form of project-specific aid from bilateral and multilateral sources -- supplemented the domestic resources. Hence, infrastructure financing was relatively simple and straightforward, but undoubtedly inefficient and lacking accountability. Public-private-partnership (PPP) is a mode of providing public infrastructure and services by the Government in partnership with the private sector. It is a long-term arrangement between Government and private sector entities for the provision of public utilities and services. In view of the investments made/management provided by private sector entities, there is risk sharing as well as performance-linked payments made by the Government to the private entities. PPP concessions can either be sustained by user charges collected by the concessionaire or through annuity payments made by the Government. In case annuity payments are made, they are typically borne by the Government out of the annual budgetary allocations spread over time and are essentially in the nature of deferred budgetary payments. This book provides an exhaustive and analytical account of various facets of infrastructure development in India. It contains 29 chapters which are categorised under the following 8 theme parts: Part I: Infrastructure Policy and Public-Private-Partnership (PPP); Part II: Energy Needs, Sources and Management; Part III: Transport Modes and Services; Part IV: Telecommunications, Information Technology (IT), Broadcasting and Postal Services; Part V: Special Economic Zones (SEZs); Part VI: Water Resources and Irrigation; Part VII: Rural Infrastructure and Services; and Part VIII: Urban Infrastructure and Services.

Bribery: Law and Practice
71,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

From being a minority interest of NGOs and niche law firms, corruption has grown into a subject which is rarely out of the media and which corporate lawyers and specialist consultants worldwide have seen as a new business opportunity. Bribery: Law and Practice from Monty Raphael QC, one of the most respected lawyers in this field, offers a comprehensive, authoritative overview of this increasingly significant area of law that updates and expands on his earlier Blackstone's Guide to the Bribery Act 2010. In the years since the Bribery Act came into force there have been a great many developments in legislation, regulation, compliance, and forensic investigation which are fully covered in this volume, including the introduction of Deferred Prosecution Agreements in the Crime and Courts Bill 2013 and the issuance of new guidance on business expenditure, facilitation payments, and self-reporting, among others, by the Serious Fraud Office, the Ministry of Justice, the Financial Conduct Authority, Transparency International, and the International Chamber of Commerce. Discussion of these new developments is complemented by rigorous insights into practice and policy and the provision of an accessible synthesis of all the available aids to compliance and regulation. Offering unparalleled practical advice and insight and answering those questions most frequently asked by those confronted with suspicions about or actual incidences of bribery and corruption, this book is an indispensable guide to not only practitioners in the fields of criminal law, and particularly financial crime, but also to those in the business community with a corporate presence in the UK.

Sacred Trust
28,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Without meaning to be irreverent, it is fair to say that in the Middle Ages, at the height of its political and economic power, the Roman Catholic Church functioned in part as a powerful and sophisticated corporation. The Church dealt in a 'product' many consumers felt they had to have: the salvation of their immortal souls. The Pope served as its CEO, the College of Cardinals as its board of directors, bishoprics and monasteries as its franchises. And while the Church certainly had moral and social goals, this early antecedent to AT&T and General Motors had economic motives and methods as well, seeking to maximize profits by eliminating competitors and extending its markets. In Sacred Trust: The Medieval Church as an Economic Firm, five highly respected economists advance the controversial argument that the story of the Roman Catholic Church in the Middle Ages is in large part a story of supply and demand. Without denying the centrality--or sincerity--of religious motives, the authors employ the tools of modern economics to analyze how the Church's objectives went well beyond the realm of the spiritual. They explore the myriad sources of the Church's wealth, including tithes and land rents, donations and bequests, judicial services and monastic agricultural production. And they present an in-depth look at the ways in which Church principles on marriage, usury, and crusade were revised as necessary to meet--and in many ways to create--the needs of a vast body of consumers. Along the way, the book raises and answers many intriguing questions. The authors explore the reasons behind the great crusades against the Moslems, probing beyond motives of pure idealism to highlight the Church's concern with revenues from tourism and the sale of relics threatened by Moslem encroachment in the holy lands. They examine the Church's involvement in the marriage market, revealing how the clergy filled their coffers by extracting fees for blessing or dissolving marital unions, for hearing marital disputes, and even for granting permission for blood relatives to wed. And they shed light on the concept of purgatory, showing how this 'product innovation' developed by the Church in the twelfth century--a form of 'deferred payment'--opened the floodgates for a fresh market in post-mortem atonement through payments on behalf of the deceased. Finally, the authors show how the cumulative costs that the faithful were asked to bear eventually priced the Roman Catholic church out of the market, paving the way for Protestant reformers like Martin Luther. A ground-breaking look at the growth and decline of the medieval Church, Sacred Trust demonstrates how economic reasoning can be used to cast light on the behavior of any complex historical institution. It offers rare insight into one of the great historical powers of Western civilization, in a analysis that will intrigue anyone interested in life in the Middle Ages, in church history, or in the influence of economic motives on historical events.
