The prospect of 160 acres of free land enticed thousands of Norwegians to immigrate to America, with high hopes for a better, more prosperous life. Those who settled in North Dakota never expected they would need several times that amount of land, nor did they imagine the high costs involved in meeting the homestead requirements. This is a story of two families for whom the promise of America miscarried. As they reached a point of borrowing money to move their dream forward the depression hit, as did a drought on the prairie. But the family spirits never died, and the immigrants never wished to be elsewhere.
Prodigiously influential, Jacques Derrida gave rise to a comprehensive rethinking of the basic concepts and categories of Western philosophy in the latter part of the twentieth century, with writings central to our understanding of language, meaning, identity, ethics and values.
In 1993, a conference was organized around the question, ‘Whither Marxism?’, and Derrida was invited to open the proceedings. His plenary address, ‘Specters of Marx’, delivered in two parts, forms the basis of this book. Hotly debated when it was first published, a rapidly changing world and world politics have scarcely dented the relevance of this book.
In the years following the Glorious Revolution, independent slave traders challenged the charter of the Royal African Company by asserting their natural rights as Britons to trade freely in enslaved Africans. In this comprehensive history of the rise and fall of the RAC, William A. Pettigrew grounds the transatlantic slave trade in politics, not economic forces, analyzing the ideological arguments of the RAC and its opponents in Parliament and in public debate. Ultimately, Pettigrew powerfully reasons that freedom became the rallying cry for those who wished to participate in the slave trade and therefore bolstered the expansion of the largest intercontinental forced migration in history.
Unlike previous histories of the RAC, Pettigrew’s study pursues the Company’s story beyond the trade’s complete deregulation in 1712 to its demise in 1752. Opening the trade led to its escalation, which provided a reliable supply of enslaved Africans to the mainland American colonies, thus playing a critical part in entrenching African slavery as the colonies’ preferred solution to the American problem of labor supply.
Debt Restructuring provides a legal analysis of international corporate, banking and sovereign debt restructuring from both the creditors’ and debtors’ perspective. It provides a practical guide for creditors holding distressed debt, debtor options in a distressed scenario and the necessary steps for the parties to achieve their goals.
Written by an expert author team of leading practitioners and academics, the legal analysis is supported by case studies and draft clauses. This topical work is divided into three parts: corporate debt restructuring; bank resolution; and sovereign debt restructuring. Focusing primarily on English and US law, there is coverage of regulation at EU level and the UNCITRAL model law on cross-border insolvencies. Regulatory, policy and practice changes developed as a result of the credit crisis are incorporated to provide a current account of practice in this field.
Aimed at lawyers working in international finance, banking, insolvency or financial services regulation, as well as regulatory agencies, central banks, banking supervisors, accountants and investment banks, Debt Restructuring can be used as a tool for international practitioners to understand the current trends in debt restructuring in order to provide a solution to their clients.
In 2006 the Grameen Bank of Bangladesh won the Nobel Peace Prize for its innovative microfinancing operations. This path-breaking study of gender, grassroots globalization, and neoliberalism in Bangladesh looks critically at the Grameen Bank and three of the leading NGOs in the country. Amid euphoria over the benefits of microfinance, Lamia Karim offers a timely and sobering perspective on the practical, and possibly detrimental, realities for poor women inducted into microfinance operations.
In a series of ethnographic cases, Karim shows how NGOs use social codes of honor and shame to shape the conduct of women and to further an agenda of capitalist expansion. These unwritten policies subordinate poor women to multiple levels of debt that often lead to increased violence at the household and community levels, thereby weakening women’s ability to resist the onslaught of market forces.
A compelling critique of the relationship between powerful NGOs and the financially strapped women beholden to them for capital, this book cautions us to be vigilant about the social realities within which women and loans circulate—realities that often have adverse effects on the lives of the very women these operations are meant to help.
Earn An Accredited College Degree Without Student Loans!
Not a day goes by that reports of the ever-increasing costs of higher education are making the news. In order to earn that coveted credential we have to take on a mountain of debt to pay for it, right? And in the society we now live in if you don’t have that coveted credential, it can be very difficult to get started in a good-paying career. What’s a person to do?
Good news…You don’t have to take on a mountain of debt to earn an accredited college degree. In fact, it’s even possible to earn a college degree for free if you know how the system works. And there are many ways to earn inexpensive college credits that colleges and universities don’t want you to know about. Why do they want this information kept secret? Simple…because they are raking in the cash from your tuition money and they don’t want the gravy train to stop.
Earn A Debt-Free College Degree! is a book that explodes the myth that earning a college degree requires a lot of money (and a big student loan that takes years to pay off). The book shows you how to earn an accredited bachelor’s degree for anywhere from free to no more than $15,000(and half this amount for associate’s degrees).
The best part about the strategies the book presents is that they do not rely on scholarships. That’s the major difference between this book and all the other books on the market that claim they can help you lower your tuition bills. Nearly all of those books talk about scholarships. These books make it sound like businesses and organizations have scholarship money just lying around and they are just looking for someone to give it to. It all sounds oh so easy, doesn’t it? There’s just one problem with this…thousands of other students have read those same books and they are all applying for the same scholarships you are. It takes many hours of work to search scholarship databases, fill out all those applications, and write essays. And then it becomes a waiting game to see if a scholarship committee picks you out of hundreds of applicants. You don’t have to worry about such an uncertain way to pay for college. There is a better way.
Earn A Debt-Free College Degree! presents simple strategies that nearly anyone can implement. You don’t have to be a stellar student with amazing grades, either. Your previous academic achievements won’t matter.
Here are just a few things you’ll discover in the book:
– Learn how to obtain textbooks for pennies on the dollar
– Discover more than a dozen colleges and universities in the U.S. that don’t charge tuition to any students who are accepted (and five of these don’t charge room and board, either)
– Find out how you can earn college credit that is accepted by nearly 1,900 college and universities in the United States by taking and passing one single multiple-choice exam. Most schools will accept up to 30 credit hours into a degree program from this type of credit. And it gets even better. It’s possible to earn 30 credit hours with this strategy for under $1,000.
– Discover how you can earn a four-year degree in only three years or even two years in some cases.
– Learn how you can turn previously completed training courses through your job, volunteer organization, and others into usable college credit. Most colleges and universities accept this type of credit but too few know about it.
– Discover the amazing educational benefits available for military personnel (either full-time, Guard, or reserves personnel). Learn how you can go from zero college credits all the way to a doctorate on the government’s tab.
– And many others.
We’ve become accustomed to the idea that earning a college degree is something that is very expensive. It’s time to destroy that myth. Let this book show you the way.
