The Hypocritical Hegemon: How the United States Shapes Global Rules against Tax Evasion and Avoidance (Cornell Studies in Money) by Lukas Hakelberg (Cornell University Press) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 23 minutes ago

In The Hypocritical Hegemon, Lukas Hakelberg takes a close look at how US domestic politics affects and determines the course of global tax policy. Through an examination of recent international efforts to crack down on offshore tax havens and the role the United States has played, Hakelberg uncovers how a seemingly innocuous technical addition to US law has had enormous impact around the world, particularly for individuals and corporations aiming to avoid and evade taxation. Through bullying and using its overwhelming political power, writes Hakelberg, the United States has imposed rules on the rest of the world while exempting domestic banks for the same reporting requirements. It can do so because no other government wields control over such huge financial and consumer markets. This power imbalance is at the heart of The Hypocritical Hegemon. Thanks to generous funding from COFFERS EU, the ebook editions of this book are available as Open Access volumes from Cornell Open (cornellopen.org) and other repositories.

Make Your Own Good Luck: Become More Fit to be "Lucky" by Robert Fenton Gary 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 24 minutes ago

This is a book about making yourself more fit to have good luck in the world exactly as it is. This means living on purpose, with a plan, into which new information "fits" or does not "fit". It also means being alert and awake to the appearance of new data and incoming opportunity. It's the person who intends some specific outcome that can make sense of the world by sorting it into what helps and what hinders progress toward that outcome. We do not know the good luck that may come to us, or the bad luck. But we can be ready to spot patterns that are going to help us toward our goal, if we have one. So, planning plays a major role in this books, and specifically the logic entailed in what I call the "planning syllogism". The overall plan of the book is to move from kitchen table basic good sense rules of thumb, through issues about dealing with others in an organization or in a society, and finally on to existential issues dealing with your life as a whole in the context of the universe, and your mortal span. How do human beings find meaning? What role does intent play? What role do plans play? How can you live a more awake and intentional life? What can you know? What can you hope for? What shall you do? How will you learn? These are questions that as you work on them make you more fit to have good luck. That's not a guarantee it's more like a bet. You shorten your odds that good luck will strike you. And when it does, and they say you are just a lucky guy, I hope you will remember that you read this book, and highlighted it, and made notes in the margins. Then you can smile and say, "Yep, that's it, just a lucky one, that's me."The author is a graduate of St. John's College (Annapolis), and the Naval Justice School (Newport RI), and the George Washington University School of Business, and Southwestern University Law School. He was also trained in Chemistry at Institut Le Rosey in Switzerland, and he is a retired Navy JAG, now working as an inventor and holding ...

Ghost in the Reflection: Letters to Erin by James F. Miller II (Planet Productions Poetry LLC) 5.0 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 24 minutes ago

This collection contains mature topics and adult language. We are sitting upon the wall waiting as mankind has taken a downward spiral. The self has become deemed more worthy than the collective being, and we await from the sidelines for the whole show to crash and burn. Ghost in the Reflection-Letters to Erin began originally as a poetry series on Channillo.com. It was a collection in the works that addressed the decline of humanity, kindness and morality in modern society. The first half of this collection, Ghost in the Reflection, is a collection of observations of a world that by the day has become less the par. A variety of voices tell their stories, outlining a decline in morals, values and/or society in general. These footprints follow the voices and observations of writers many generations before us. Meanwhile, the second part of the collection, Letters to Erin, is a narrative that displays these declines of morals and values as the thorns they have become in the present day "traditional" relationship, which is the core of any society. It documents the highs and the lows as well as the daily battles between love and hate against the backdrop of society's decaying morality. It examines the hurt, the struggle, the deceit, betrayal and the disappointments that arrive in such an arrangement. We can find every darker aspect of this decline represented inside the shadows of these brutal wounds decorated with the harshness of unfiltered truth. The third part of this collection is a sneak peek at what is to come in the follow up collection to these works. "Miller is unafraid to delve into our current political and social climate in all its flaws, passionate love in all its ups and downs and presents an ode to hope for our future children, that they will learn from our mistakes." -Isabelle Kenyon

The ever-evolving race in selling death... Modern warfare in the twentieth century has advanced in far greater strides than any other century previously. And as the former political consultant for the Sunday Times, James Adams reveals increasingly political. With numerous case studies, across the years, nations and continents, Adams' delineates a clear timeline of how 'selling death' has changed and altered; From the organisational, training and bomb advancements made in IRA groups to the former guerrilla factions and freedom fighters in Afghanistan and Iran; From illegal arms deals done in secret by the very superpowers that openly condemned them in up-coming third-and second-world countries. Adams also illustrates individual advancements in use of chemical weapons in Iraq and Iran; research in biological warfare; and Nuclear programs in America, the former Soviet Union and even India, Israel and Pakistan.

The Road to Newgate: A 17th Century London Mystery by Kate Braithwaite (darkstroke / crooked cat) 4.3 Stars (80 Reviews)    Price verified 13 hours ago

A dangerous ambition. A Popish plot. A marriage at risk. London, 1678 Anne Thompson has left a life of luxury and comfort to marry Nat, an ambitious writer and Licenser of King Charles II's Presses: but married life isn't quite what either of them expected. Nat's work is time-consuming, with religious sedition on the rise, and Titus Oates' tales of a Popish plot fueling bigotry against Catholics and causing panic on the streets of London. When he is caught up in the investigation of the murder of a prominent Protestant magistrate, Anne, lonely and frustrated, wonders what kind of man Nat really is. Is he right that this murder is not what it seems, or is Nat's ambition leading them toward disaster? Should Anne become involved, as he risks his livelihood, his freedom and their marriage in pursuit of the truth about Titus Oates? Based on the true events of the Popish Plot in late 17th century England, The Road to Newgate is a historical mystery thriller and love story perfect for fans of Andrew Taylor and Philippa Gregory. ~~~ "Absorbing fascinating historical fiction, bringing to life 17th century London" ~ What Cathy Read Next "The author does this type of historical fiction so well, cleverly blending fact with fiction, danger with intrigue and all the necessary emotion along the way." ~ Jaffareadstoo "A deftly plotted book, with plenty of twists and turns, all the more remarkable for being based on real events." ~ Discovering Diamonds Reviews "... excellently written, filled with facts and hints of fiction, intensely inviting characters (primary and secondary), eye-catching building of the mind to step back in time to the 17th century.

THE GREAT PATH TO NOWHERE by Robert Trainor Price verified 22 hours ago

The following is a brief synopsis of The Great Path to Nowhere. Given the reality of the stupendously large universe that we live in, it is one of the most peculiar facts of our existence that we insist, as individuals, upon our own importance. Logically, it's easy to see that we overestimate our importance and continuously give significance to things that are essentially trivial. I'm sure almost everyone will agree that in a million years, the thoughts, actions, or feelings that we have today will have no relevance whatsoever. But we live our lives as if they do. Why? Why are we so obsessed with our own importance and the importance of those people, events, and desires that populate our existence? To find an answer to this question, we have to examine the ego, that part of the thought process that calls itself "I." It is impossible to understand the ego without understanding the nature of thought because the ego arises out of thought. It is not that the ego came first and produced thought; rather, thought came first, and from out of thought -- the thinking process -- the ego arose. If you observe your thoughts, you will see how quickly "I" begins to intermingle with almost all the thoughts that go through your mind. This "I" is a product of thought, and although we identify this "I" with ourselves, it is, in reality, nothing more than an invention of thought. If you continue to look closely and honestly at the origin of thought, you'll begin to sense, or see, that there seems to be some hyperactive being within you that is very concerned with its status, its feelings, its fears, its ambitions, and its sense of being wronged. After you observe your thought process for a while, it begins to seem like it's been taken over or hijacked by a crazy and rather evil guy. From everywhere, we've been essentially programmed by our environment, and the programming of thought includes, as a mandatory installation, the crazy and evil "guy." Or, depending on the circumstance, ...
