real life - by first encountering practical moral
problems and then introducing theory to understand and
integrate the issues. - This book explains and defines
the moral problem dealt with - provides excerpts of
readings on all sides of the issue - analyses the
problem, using the relevant theory The examples are
recognizable ethical problems, including judgments about
racism and sexism, controversial debates such as assisted
suicide and the death penalty, and contemporary concerns
like privacy and technology, corporate responsibility,
and the environment. The mission of the book is to assist
us to engage in informed, independent, critical thinking

ISBN : 9783319639246.

This book is a wide-ranging and timely overview of the
contemporary Chinese banking system. It charts the vast
changes in Chinese banking from before China-s admission
to the WTO in 2001 to more recent regulatory reform and
developments in the shadow banking sector. The book
begins with an economic history of the mono-banking
system, and a critical discussion of reforms taken by the
government in preparation for China-s entry to the WTO.
The second part of the book discusses banking regulation
and government policy during and after the global
financial crisis in 2008-2009 and their impact on
banking, including recent developments. Finally, the book
concludes an empirical analysis of the impact of banking
reforms on a number of important issues, including bank
efficiency, capital structure, competition and financial
stability, and risk taking behaviour.

This book takes a holistic approach to explore how
business is being conducted in China and India, and to
analyze the factors that influence business decisions in
present times. In doing so the book seeks to develop a
fuller understanding of the present -context- within the
two Asian nations, drawing upon a complete understanding
of the culture, history and behaviour of the society and
its institutions. The authors probe an area that has not
been widely addressed before and seek to provide a finer
analysis of the influences behind day-to-day business
operations. This study has widespread appeal as it covers
business processes at three different levels: macro-
level, including government policies and institutions,
meso-level, organisations and communities, and micro-
level, individuals within business.

dimensions of this field of knowledge. Each chapter opens
with perspectives on its theme, often from several points
of view. Five original and thought-provoking questions
follow. These aim at widening readers knowledge and
deepening their insight. Scattered among the questions
are entertaining puzzles to solve and tantalising
paradoxes to explain. Readers can compare their own
statistical discoveries with the authors detailed answers
to all the questions.

them. The book focuses on every day, affordable -fast
fashion- brands as well as the luxury market, to show how
both ends of the fashion industry exert a powerful force
over our lives. It also discusses trend forecasters, the
media and the pressures on consumers, arguing that the
world of fashion is both a dictatorship and a democracy,
directing our shopping habits as well as our appearance.

ISBN : 9783319313429.

This book highlights research on and examples of
redemptive managerial behaviors used in the successful
reinstatement and improved performance of employees
previously terminated for cause. Organizational pressure
to hire and retain near-perfect employees is higher than
ever, but by offering second chance opportunities and
utilizing the resources outlined in this book managers
can reclaim, restore, and redirect current employees with
great potential. Based on qualitative research and
contemporary stories of successful reinstatement, the
author highlights the benefits of adopting a redemptive
approach and offering employees second chances. The value
proposition of retaining an already trained but
underperforming employee often results in avoidance of
arbitration costs, reduced turnover, higher productivity,
and greater employee loyalty.

From silver spoons to silver bullets, silver permeates
our everyday culture and language. For millennia we have
used it to buy what we need, adorn our bodies and trumpet
our social status. Silver vanquishes our insecurities, as
well as vampires and werewolves. Once valued primarily
for its beauty and rarity, silver is now also exploited
for its chemistry, while it used to lubricate markets,
bolster dowries and pay armies, now it permeates our
electronics, textiles and medical devices. Silver was
formed through the supernovae of stars, and its history
continues to be marked by cataclysm. Through currency and
trade, it brought the continents of the Americas, Europe
and Asia closer together, then, through war and trade
imbalance, it destabilized empires.
