   1 Arbogast, Stephen V
Resisting corporate corruption : cases in practical
ethics from enron through the financial crisis / Stephen
V. Arbogast.--3rd ed.-- Hoboken: Wiley, 2017.
xxvi,566p. , 24cm.
ISBN : 9781119323341.
174.4 ARB 146641
This book teaches business ethics in a manner very
different from the philosophical and legal frameworks
that dominate graduate schools. The book offers twenty-
eight case studies and nine essays that cover a full
range of business practice, controls and ethics issues.
The essays discuss the nature of sound financial
controls, root causes of the Financial Crisis, and the
evolving nature of whistleblower protections. The cases
are framed to instruct students in early identification
of ethics problems and how to work such issues within
corporate organizations.

2 Gollier, Christian
Ethical asset valuation and the good society / Christian
Gollier.-- New York: Columbia University Press, 2018.
xxx, 215p. , 23cm.
ISBN : 9780231545921.
174.4 GOL 146635
In this book, the author develops a powerful method for
transforming our societal goals of collective prosperity
into the cornerstone of our financial decision making. It
starts by stating transparent moral principles and, from
these, derives simple rules that can be used to evaluate
saving and investment decisions in terms of the public
good. Rather than trying to explain observed asset
prices, Gollier derives what these prices ought to be in
order to direct capital toward socially desirable
investments. He focuses especially on the two prices that
drive most financial decisions-the price of time as
reflected in the interest rate and the price of risk-and
explores the role these play in our long-term planning.

332.6323 CHO 146633
This book covers an aspect of the fixed income market
that has become relevant to investors but is not covered
at an advanced level in existing textbooks. This is
material that is pertinent to the investment decisions
but is not freely available to those not originating the
products. Professor Choudhry’s method is to place ideas
into contexts in order to keep them from becoming too
theoretical. He draws on both his personal experience as
well as his own research to bring together subjects of
practical importance to bond market investors and

Patents : prompting or restricting innovation? / Marc
Baudry and Beatrice Dumont.-- London: ISTE Ltd/John Wiley
and Sons Inc, 2017.
xv, 252p. , 24cm.
(Smart innovation set , 12).
ISBN : 9781786301185.
346.0486 BAU 146639
This book provides a less Manichaean view of the position
of patents in the system of contemporary innovation. It
first recalls that these criticisms are not new, before
arguing that if these criticisms have been revived, it is
because of a partial shift from an integrated innovation
system to a much more fragmented and open system. This
shift accompanied the promotion of a more competitive
economy. The authors show that this movement is coherent
with a more intensive use of patents, but also one that
is more focused on their signal function than on their
function of direct monetary incentive to innovation.

English in business and commerce : interactions and
policies / Tamah Sherman and Jiri Nekvapil.-- Berlin:
Walter de Gruyter, 2018.
xv, 363. , 24cm.
(Language and social life , 14).
ISBN : 9781501515538.
400 SHE 146631
This book fills an important gap in exploring English in
the domains of business and commerce through the prism of
sociolinguistics and the sociology of language, as
opposed to analyzing business genres or taking a
linguodidactic approach. It expands the regional coverage
of English in Europe, with several studies based in
Central Europe, and also considers contexts which
interact with Europe even though they are physically
outside of it (Asia, Africa). It addresses English as
just one of several languages at play in the ecology of
the countries. It focuses not only on the position of
languages as declared in documents of various
organizations, that is, language policy, but also
everyday linguistic practices as observed in business
contexts, that is, interactions.

Rhetoric has shaped our understanding of the nature of
language and the purpose of literature for over two
millennia. It is of crucial importance in understanding
the development of literary history as well as elements
of philosophy, politics and culture. The nature and
practise of rhetoric was central to Classical,
Renaissance and Enlightenment cultures and its relevance
continues in our own postmodern world to inspire further
