This book presents a comprehensive guide for making
policy judgments. The book provides a broad framework for
the moral evaluation of public policies and policy
proposals. This framework is organized around guiding
five principles: benefit, effectiveness, fairness,
fidelity, and legitimacy. These principles identify the
factors that should be taken into account and the issues
that should be addressed as citizens address the question
of what the United States government should be able to
do. The book outlines a comprehensive ethical framework,
provides content to the meaning of the five principles
that comprise that framework through the use of
illustrations and examples, and offers guidance about how
to navigate one°s way through the conflicts and dilemmas
that inevitably result from a serious effort to analyze

of physical money-to say nothing of its value-is coming
under fire as never before. Intrigued by the distinct
possibility that cash will soon disappear, the author
sets out to investigate the future of money...and how it
will affect your wallet. Told with verve and wit, The End

fundamental that we rarely stop to think about it. You-ll

Contingent Convertibles (CoCos) represent debt that is
subject to being converted automatically into common
equity under pre-specified terms of conversion if the
chosen regulatory capital ratio falls to a level
triggering conversion. CoCos are that subspecies of
contingent capital that references regulatory (Basel III)
concepts in its triggers. The book is mostly concerned
with going-concern °recovery-° rather than °resolution-°
CoCos, because avoiding failure and costly disruption of
financial networks without government financing is the
first order of business.It is intended to increase the
ability of issuers and investors to analyze and
understand the different kinds of CoCos.

In this book, Bill McDermott--the co-CEO of the world-s
largest business software company, SAP--chronicles how
relentless optimism, hard work, and disciplined execution
embolden people and equip organizations to achieve
audacious goals. Growing up in working-class Long Island,
a sixteen-year-old Bill traded three hourly wage jobs to
buy a small deli, which he ran by instinctively applying
ideas that would be the seeds for his future success.
After paying for and graduating college, Bill talked his
way into a job selling copiers door-to-door for Xerox,
where he went on to rank number one in every sales
position he held and eventually became the company-s
youngest-ever corporate officer. Eventually, Bill left
Xerox and in 2002 became the unlikely president of SAP-s
flailing American business unit.

reference to India. The book deals with different models
of education loan systems prevailing in various countries
and covers Indian experiences in the area of education
loans, as a case study of a developing country. Based on
field studies conducted in four Indian states, the book
explains that the higher education loan system in India
has not been inclusive of poorer sections of society,
particularly people from rural areas. The book also
includes an elaborate discussion on the operation of
education loans given by banks in four Indian states and
examines various issues of the education loan system and
formulates an action plan to popularize it as a tool for
financing higher education in developing countries.

This book identifies two new types of risk created by an
organization-s business model: information risk, which
requires decision making without sufficient information,
and incentive-alignment risk, which leads to actions that
clash with the interests of a value chain. The authors
stress that being mindful of these risks and making small
modifications to an existing business model can create
significant competitive differences. To that end, they
present the four -Ws- for designing better business
models, which examine what decisions are made, when they
are made, who makes them, and why they are made. The
authors also explore the decisions that constitute a

In October 1947, two months after he became independent
India-s first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru wrote the
first of his fortnightly letters to the heads of the
country-s provincial governments-a tradition that he kept
until his last letter in December 1963, only a few months
before his death. Carefully selected from among nearly 400
such letters, this collection covers a range of themes
and subjects, including citizenship, war and peace, law
and order, national planning and development, governance
and corruption, and India’s place in the world. The
letters also cover momentous world events and the many
crises and conflicts the country faced during the first
sixteen years after Independence.
