The Financialisation of the Citizen

The Financialisation of the Citizen

Author: Guido Comparato Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/11/2020

This book discusses the role of private law as an instrument to produce financial and social inclusion in a context characterised by the redefinition of the role of the State and by the financialisation of society. By depicting the political and economic developments behind the popular idea of financial inclusion, the book deconstructs that notion, illustrating the existence and interaction of different discourses surrounding it. The book further traces the evolution of inclusion, specifically in the European context, and thus moves on to analyse the legal rules which are most relevant for the purposes of bringing about the financialisation of the citizen. Hence, the author focuses more on four highly topical areas: access to a bank account, access to credit, over indebtedness, and financial education. Adopting a critical and inter-disciplinary approach, The Financialisation of the Citizen takes the reader through a top-down journey starting from the political economy of financialisation, to the law and policy of the European Union, and finally to more specific private law rules.

White and Brunstad's Secured Transactions - CasebookPlus

White and Brunstad's Secured Transactions - CasebookPlus

Author: James J. White, G. Eric Brunstad Jr Format: Mixed media product Release Date: 25/10/2020

White and Brunstad's Secured Transactions: Teaching Materials, 4th deals with both the basics of secured transactions under Article Nine of the UCC and some of the most complex modern transactions such as repos and securitizations. To offset the complexities of the subject matter, the authors have made this text extremely user-friendly. Every chapter has extensive expository introductory material to help the student get oriented. This manageably sized book is organized by transaction (e.g., loans on equipment, loans on inventory, etc.), rather than by code section (e.g., attachment, perfection, etc.), so that students can see how various transactions develop, rather than learning about sections of the code out of context. A course on Article Nine offers the opportunity for the student to acquire an extensive and vitally important commercial law vocabulary, and this book maximizes that opportunity. In addition to extensively revising all of the former chapters, the new edition adds a new introductory chapter on the history of secured transactions and the interpretation of Article Nine (including use of the official comments), and a concluding chapter on the theory of Article Nine. This tracks modern curricular trends, including increased interest in courses on legislation and more detailed consideration of methods of statutory interpretation.

This short book is designed to enhance the business training of law students. It focuses on select foundational topics that often fall outside the scope of a traditional business organizations course.

The emphasis is on real-world relevance and promoting awareness and a basic understanding in six areas: important business differences, classifications and characterizations; core accounting concepts and financial statement basics; key quantitative concepts often associated with financial literacy; business funding challenges; rudimentary tax concepts of business entities; and 16 important business factors presented in a choice-of-entity planning context. The book includes 18 mini-case-study problems that enable students to analyze and apply the substance of what they are reading to specific fact situations.
