Islamic Social Finance: Entrepreneurship, Cooperation and the Sharing Economy
The most recent dynamics of world capitalism show radical changes in the socio-economics of property management, credit provision and entrepreneurship. If on the one side the emergence of the sharing economy is fostering innovative models of collaborative agency, networking and venture business, on the other side economic actors are favouring strategies of sustainable development, with social impact investments that link profitability with community welfare and business choices that reflect personal ethical values. This book looks at Islamic finance as a paramount example of this capitalism under change, where the balance between economic efficiency and moral legitimacy is contributing to the transformation of the market from an exchange- to a person-oriented development institution. To this end, the chapters analyse the social dimension of entrepreneurship from an Islamic perspective, highlighting the extent to which the rationales of distribution and cooperation that nurture Islamic economics affect the conceptualization of the market from an ethical stance. Moving from a theoretical to an operative approach, the contributing authors investigate the instruments that Islamic finance offers for social impact investments and the sharing economy, connecting current trends in the financial market to shari`ah-compliant strategies for local and community development. By contextualizing Islamic finance within the transformative nature of contemporary capitalism, the book provides an illuminating reference for researchers, practitioners and policy-makers dealing with the challenges of a global market where not only is diversity being perceived as a value to be fostered, but also as an important opportunity for a more inclusive economy for everybody.

None of My Business: P.J. Explains Money, Banking, Debt, Equity, Assets, Liabilities and Why He's Not Rich and Neither Are You
Delving into the world of big money has all the excitement of being a war correspondent with only two-thirds of the danger. In None of My Business, P.J. O'Rourke takes forty-five years of experience making fun of terrible things in some of the world's most awful places and applies it to a place that's even worse-Wall Street. Want to get rich overnight for free in three easy steps with no risk? Then don't buy this book. (Actually, if you believe there's a book that can do that, you shouldn't buy any books because you probably can't read.) P.J.'s approach to business, investment, finance, and innovation is different. He takes the risks for you in his chapter How I Learned Economics by Watching People Try to Kill Each Other, detailing the economic lessons he learned while reporting in some of the most turbulent combat zones across the world. P.J. has his eye on the present as well as the past. He explores the world of high tech innovation with a chapter on the Internet, which poses the question, whose idea was it to put every idiot in the world in touch with every other idiot? P.J. is baffled by bitcoin, which seems to him like a weird scam invented by strange geeks with weaponized slide rules in the high school Evil Math Club. And he writes a fanciful short story about the morning he wakes up to find that all the world's goods and services are free-with disastrous (and hilarious) results for the rule of law and the harmony of society. This is P.J. at his finest, a book that reminds us that when everything around us is Liar's Poker, all we can do is fold-with laughter.

The Structural Foundations of Monetary Policy
In The Structural Foundations of Monetary Policy , Michael D. Bordo, John H. Cochrane, and Amit Seru bring together discussions and presentations from the Hoover Institution's annual monetary policy conference. The conference participants discuss long-run monetary issues facing the world economy, with an emphasis on deep, unresolved structural questions. They explore vital issues affecting the Federal Reserve, the United States' central bank. They voice concern over the Fed's independence, governance, and ability to withstand future shocks and analyze the effects of its monetary policies and growing balance sheet in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. The authors ask a range of questions that get to the heart of twenty-first-century monetary policy. What should the role of the Fed be? Which policies and strategies will mitigate the risks of the next crisis and at the same time spur innovation and job creation? How can new technology make the Fed's payment system safer, faster, and more efficient? What does the emergence of crypto-currencies such as Bitcoin mean for competition and stability? How can the Fed defend itself against exploitation and politicization? Finally they propose reforms to ensure that the Fed will remain independent, stable, strong, and resilient in an unpredictable world.

Monetary Equilibrium and Nominal Income Targeting
This book examines the case of nominal income targeting as a monetary policy rule. In recent years the most well-known nominal income targeting rule has been NGDP (level) Targeting, associated with a group of economists referred to as market monetarists (Scott Sumner, David Beckworth, and Lars Christensen among others). Nominal income targeting, though not new in monetary theory, was relegated in economic theory following the Keynesian revolution, up until the financial crisis of 2008, when it began to receive renewed attention. This book fills a gap in the literature available to researchers, academics, and policy makers on the benefits of nominal income targeting against alternative monetary rules. It starts with the theoretical foundations of monetary equilibrium. With this foundation laid, it then deals with nominal income targeting as a monetary policy rule. What are the differences between NGDP Targeting and Hayek's rule? How do these rules stand up against other monetary rules like inflation targeting, the Taylor rule, or Friedman's k-percent? Nominal income targeting is a rule which is better equipped to avoid monetary disequilibrium when there is no inflation. Therefore, a book that explores the theoretical foundation of nominal income targeting, comparing it with other monetary rules, using the 2008 crisis to assess it and laying out monetary policy reforms towards a nominal income targeting rule will be timely and of interest to both academics and policy makers.

How You Got Screwed: What Big Banks, Big Government, and Big Business Don't Want You to Know-and What You Can Do About It
If you're like most people, you want nothing more than a fair shot in life: a chance to seek out opportunities, work hard, and make your own way in this world. But as author Allen Marshall explains in How You Got Screwed, the game has been rigged, making it almost impossible for you to win. How You Got Screwed explains exactly how the rules have been made to favor those in charge. Consider the financial system, which steals your earning power with money that doesn't hold its value and lets banks break the law practically without consequence. Think about our politicians, who serve their donors and lobbyists, and a government more interested in serving itself than its people. And remember big business, which uses its money and political power to twist the rules in their favor, hurting you as a consumer, employee, and citizen. Yes, the cards are stacked against you. But that's only if you play by their rules. It's time to play your own game--and How You Got Screwed is your guide to making the system work for you.

Anti-Money Laundering: A Practical Guide to Reducing Organizational Risk
It is estimated that between 2 and 5 per cent of global GDP (over $3 trillion) is laundered by criminals around the world every year. Once thought to be a problem which only affected banks and the financial services sector, high profile cases, such as the recent leak of the Panama Papers in 2016, have thrust the issue into the public arena, and governments around the world are being forced to put robust systems and controls in place. Anti-Money Laundering offers a cost-effective self-development tool for the busy compliance professional eager to progress their career and in need of an accessible, practical and jargon-free introduction to anti-money laundering (AML). Anti-Money Laundering offers a practical guide to navigate the maze of requirements needed to counter money laundering in an organization. This book separates the different elements of AML practice, featuring a range of case studies and scenarios highlighting issues and best practices around the world. The text demonstrates that it is by foresight and methodology that AML can be mitigated, and provides clarity on complex points to better enable readers to gain the expertise they need to achieve success in practice.

The People's Money: How China Is Building a Global Currency
Many of the world's major economies boast dominant international currencies. Not so for China. Its renminbi has lagged far behind the pound, the euro, and the dollar in global circulation--and for good reason. China has long privileged economic policies that have fueled development at the expense of the renminbi's growth, and it has become clear that the underpowered currency is threatening China's future. The nation's leaders now face the daunting task of strengthening the currency without losing control of the nation's economy or risking total collapse. How are they approaching this challenge? In The People's Money, Paola Subacchi introduces readers to China's monetary system, mapping its evolution over the past century and, particularly, its transformation since Deng Xiaoping took power in 1978. Subacchi revisits the policies that fostered the country's economic rise while at the same time purposefully creating a currency of little use beyond China's borders. She shows the key to understanding China's economic predicament lies in past and future strategies for the renminbi. The financial turbulence following the global crisis of 2008, coupled with China's ambitions as a global creditor and chief economic power, has forced the nation to reckon with the limited international circulation of the renminbi. Increasing the currency's reach will play a major role in securing China's future.
