Free Global Corporate Capital Flows 2008/9 to 2013/14, A Study of the Investment Intentions of Companies in 15 Countries Around the World, KPMG
The increasing importance of the economies of China, India, Russia and Brazil (BRIC), and widespread economic concerns in Europe and the U.S., suggest that we may now be beginning a new phase in global economic development. Companies need to ask whether the global business game is changing, and whether we know the new rules.
To find out whether there really is a new pattern emerging and if so, what its implications might be, researchers asked over 300 senior corporate investment strategists in 15 countries around the world which countries (other than their own) they plan to invest in during 2008/09, and where they are looking to invest in five years’ time.
This group of people was chosen because their investment decisions are medium to long term, they are intended to generate real growth for the companies these people run, and they are usually made on the basis of careful analysis of the underlying prospects for markets and countries. To add a slightly different perspective, researchers also carried out 10 in-depth interviews with private equity fund managers and controllers of sovereign wealth funds. These are organizations with a very significant influence on investment flows, but with a different set of priorities from corporate investors.
The results point to a marked change in the pattern of investment. This year, the U.S. leads by a long way, with 27 percent of investors planning a significant investment in the country in the next 12 months. Next is China, with 17 percent, followed by the U.K., with 14 percent, Germany with 13 percent and Russia with 12 percent. More………………..
Free 50 Psychology Classics Who We Are, How We Think, What We Do; Insight and Inspiration from 50 Key Books, Tom Butler-Bowdon
This book offers an engaging overview of 50, for the most part, widely popular psychology books as well as short biographies of their authors. Knowing the backgrounds of these psychologists helps to understand where they are coming from and what motivated them to explore a particular area of human mind, or behavior and arrive at particular conclusions.
Some of the authors covered are William James, Sigmund Freud, Karl Gustav Jung, Abraham Maslow, Dr. Milton Erickson (as a hypnotherapist, I was thrilled that he was mentioned here), Robert Cialdini, David Burns, and many others who have contributed not only to the greater understanding of human mind and behavior, but also to creating methods and techniques some appropriate for use within therapeutic environment and others designed to help people to use on their own to cope better with life’s challenges, to feel better and to live more satisfying lives.
Blood is a life-sustaining fluid which circulates through the heart and blood vessels. It carries oxygen and nutrients to the tissues and waste products to the lungs, liver and kidneys, where they can be removed from the body. Usually when blood is removed from the body it forms a solid blood clot. However, if clotting is prevented by mixing with an anticoagulant, the blood separates, under the influence of gravity, into three layers. The bottom layer is deep red in colour and is composed of red cells.
The top layer is clear and pale yellow. It is called plasma and is composed of various salts and proteins dissolved in water. In between is a narrow layer called the buffy coat because of its buff or yellowish white colour. The buffy coat is composed mainly of cells of a variety of types, collectively known as white cells. In addition there are small cellular fragments, called platelets, which have a role in blood clotting.
We all have the power of attraction—the ability to draw people in and hold them in our thrall. Far from all of us, though, are aware of this inner potential, and we imagine attractiveness instead as a near-mystical trait that a select few are born with and the rest will never command. Yet all we need to do to realize our potential is understand what it is in a person’s character that naturally excites people and develop these latent qualities within us.
Successful seductions rarely begin with an obvious maneuver or strategic device. That is certain to arouse suspicion. Successful seductions begin with your character, your ability to radiate some quality that attracts people and stirs their emotions in a way that is beyond their control. Hypnotized by your seductive character, your victims will not notice your subsequent manipulations. It will then be child’s play to mislead and seduce them.
There are nine seducer types in the world. Each type has a particular character trait that comes from deep within and creates a seductive pull. Sirens have an abundance of sexual energy and know how to use it. Rakes insatiably adore the opposite s…x, and their desire is infectious. Ideal Lovers have an aesthetic sensibility that they apply to romance. Dandies like to play with their image, creating a striking and androgynous allure. Naturals are spontaneous and open. Coquettes are self-sufficient, with a fascinating cool at their core. Charmers want and know how to please—they are social creatures.
Charismatics have an unusual confidence in themselves. Stars are ethereal and envelop themselves in mystery.
Get this book to study and think about and view it as relationship advice and not physical s….x advice. So much of the book is about communication and is dead on that it is no wonder it is a classic and likewise shows how important communication is to good s……x. In terms of this specific translation, just go for a modern translation of the whole book. The Richard Burton translation is very stilted. It seems that the Alain Daniélou translation is good, but I have not read that specific one.
