READING: Whenever you hear the sky rumble, that usually means a storm. In Virgil Flowers’ case, make that two. The first storm comes from, of all places, the Minnesota zoo. Two large, and very rare, Amur tigers have vanished from their cage, and authorities are worried sick that they’ve been stolen for their body parts. Traditional Chinese medicine prizes those parts for home remedies, and people will do extreme things to get what they need. Some of them are a great deal more extreme than others – as Virgil is about to find out. Then there’s the homefront. Virgil’s relationship with his girlfriend Frankie has been getting kind of serious, but when Frankie’s sister moves in for the summer, the situation gets a lot more complicated. Forget a storm – this one’s a tornado.

READING: FDLE agent Bill Tasker's boss is worried about the stress Tasker's been under, but he has a solution. The Governor wants somebody from the outside to take a look into an inmate homicide at Manatee Correctional Prison and the boss figures he can do the state a favor and give Tasker a break at the same time. Some break, turns out there's a whole lot going on at Manatee. The prison captain likes to enforce discipline by fairly unorthodox methods ... The prison inspector is carrying a number of very uninspector-like secrets, and something very bad is about to happen to Tasker's next-door neighbor.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: "We consider the design and implementation of international trade agreements when: (i) negotiations are undertaken and commitments made in the presence of uncertainty about future political pressures; (ii) governments possess private information about political pressures at the time that the agreement is actually implemented; and (iii) negotiated commitments can be implemented only if they are self-enforcing. We thus consider the design of self-enforcing trade agreements among governments that acquire private information over time. In this context, we provide equilibrium interpretations of GATT/WTO negotiations regarding upper bounds on applied tariffs and GATT/WTO escape clauses. We find that governments achieve greater welfare when they negotiate the optimal upper bound on tariffs rather than precise tariff levels; furthermore, when governments negotiate the optimal upper bound on tariffs, the observed applied tariffs often fall strictly below the bound. Our analysis also provides a novel interpretation of a feature of the WTO Safeguard Agreement, under which escape clause actions cannot be re-imposed in the same industry for a time period equal to the duration of the most recent escape clause action. We find that a dynamic usage constraint of this kind can raise the expected welfare of negotiating governments"--National Bureau of Economic Research web site.

READING: Shanghai, 1912. De veertienjarige Violet Minturn wordt gedwongen om een `maagdelijke courtisane te worden, maar als half-Chinese, half-Amerikaanse ontpopt ze zich daarentegen tot een gewiekste zakenvrouw die handelt in verleiding en illusie. Ook Violets moeder Lucia worstelt met deze half-westerse, half-oosterse identiteit. Beide vrouwen weigeren zich neer te leggen bij de Chinese sociale verwachtingen en ideeën over het lot en volharden in hun streven om terug te krijgen wat hun ontnomen is: respect, een veilige toekomst, en bovenal liefde. Achter hun successen schuilt een verlangen naar geborgenheid en een strijd om te begrijpen wie ze werkelijk zijn. In een ontroerend verhaal, dat meer dan veertig jaar en twee continenten beslaat, leidt Amy Tan haar lezers terug naar het Shanghai van weleer. Met haar kenmerkende wijsheid, sierlijkheid en humor roept Tan een verhaal op over de persoonlijke zoektocht van Violet en haar moeder, over familiegeheimen, de nalatenschap van traumas, en de diepe connectie tussen moeders en dochters. Vallei van verwondering is gebaseerd op Tans eigen familiegeschiedenis. Amy Tan is de auteur van De vreugde- en gelukclub, De vrouw van de keukengod, De honderd geheime zintuigen, De dochter van de heelmeester, Vissen op het droge helpen en haar autobiografische familiegeschiedenis De keerzijde van het lot. Haar werk is vertaald in meer dan dertig talen. Ze woont in New York en San Francisco. Over De dochter van de heelmeester: `Tan heeft een ongekend talent. Ze is in staat the best of both worlds, de westerse ironie en de oosterse verbeeldingskracht, te combineren, en daarbij haar verhalen te laten zinderen van spanning. NRC Handelsblad Over De honderd geheime zintuigen: `Toegankelijk taalgebruik en een verteltrant die meer vaart heeft dan de Oriënt Express. Algemeen Dagblad `Een schitterend epos. Elsevier Over De vrouw van de keukengod: `Met De vrouw van de keukengod overtreft Amy Tan haar briljante debuutroman. Haagsche Courant

READING: This book discusses the law of safeguard measures as laid down in the WTO agreements and cases decided by the Panel and the Appellate Body. It sets out a comprehensive treatment of safeguard measures covering the history and evolution of the law, as well as the procedural requirements and the application of safeguard measures. In addition to measures under Article XIX and the Safeguards Agreement, the book includes coverage of safeguard measures for agricultural products, Special Safeguard Measures for developing countries, safeguard measures for textiles and proposed safeguard measures under General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS) as well as special safeguard clauses against China. Recognition and Regulation of Safeguard Measures Under GATT/WTO considers safeguards from a developing country’s perspective drawing on Joseph E. Stiglitz’s argument that developing countries require these trade remedy measures to protect their domestic industries and ensure their development. Sheela Rai considers this view and goes on to examine how beneficial the provisions relating to safeguard measures and their interpretation given by the Panel and Appellate Body have been for developing countries.

READING: Moordzakenrechercheur Virgil Flowers dacht dat niks hem meer kon verrassen. Hij had het mis. Wanneer hij tijdens een warme, broeierige nacht in Minnesota in bed ligt met een van zijn ex-vrouwen, gaat de telefoon. Het is zijn chef Lucas Davenport, die hem vertelt dat er een lijk is aangetroffen in het plaatsje Stillwater. Een lijk met twee kogels in zijn hoofd en een citroen in zijn mond. Precies hetzelfde als bij het lijk dat vorige week werd gevonden... Hoe dieper Virgil Flowers in deze moordzaken duikt, hoe meer hij vreest dat de dader nog meer namen op zijn lijstje heeft staan. Maar alle sporen die hij volgt, leiden tot meer vragen, en slapeloze nachten, in plaats van antwoorden. De enige oplossing die hij kan bedenken is er een waarvan hij niet wil dat het waar is... ‘John Sandford is een auteur die zware misdaad geloofwaardig weet te combineren met melodieuze melancholie.’ – De Volkskrant ‘**** Sandford zet losjes uit de pols een sfeertje neer dat scheert langs het vakmanschap van Michael Connelly en Harlan Coben.’ – VN’s Detective en Thrillergids ‘Wanneer het sfeertekening, droge humor en dialoog betreft, levert Sandford zoals gebruikelijk kwaliteit van de bovenste plank.’ – Algemeen dagblad ‘Voor liefhebbers van politieke thrillers een aanrader.’ – Crimezone.nl


The Book Governance Structures and Decision Making Roles in Inflation Targeting Central Banks
The Author Anita Tuladhar
The Publisher International Monetary Fund
Release Date2005-09-01
Genre Anti-inflationary policies
Pages 27
ISBN
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: This paper surveys decision-making roles of governing bodies of central banks that have formally adopted inflation targeting as a monetary framework. Governance practices seek to balance institutional independence needed for monetary policy credibility with accountability required to protect democratic values. Central bank laws usually have price stability as the primary monetary policy objective but seldom require an explicit numerical inflation target. Governments are frequently involved in setting targets, but to ensure operational autonomy, legal provisions explicitly limit government influence in internal policy decision-making processes. Internal governance practices differ considerably with regard to the roles and inter-relationships between the policy, supervisory, and management boards of a central bank.
