His first deal involves the acquisition of Milstien Stores by Kristos & Company. However, as soon as the business is handed over to founder Nick Christanapoulas’s ineffectual son-in-law, one of ABC’s senior managers, Jack Shane, engineers a risky financing that drives the business into bankruptcy. In the process, Shane demonstrates to Finn how Wall Streeters operate. Finn realizes that the financial world is populated by egomaniacs, and he is determined to help Nick buy back his company. When Shane and his cohorts hear of the plans, they threaten Finn’s life and expose his new girlfriend’s sordid past, because all along, they wanted to carve up this business for themselves.

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jake Bernstein takes listeners inside the scandalous world revealed by the Panama Papers, a landscape of illicit money, political corruption, and fraud on a global scale. A hidden circulatory system flows beneath the surface of global finance, carrying trillions of dollars from drug trafficking, tax evasion, bribery, and other illegal enterprises. This network masks the identities of the individuals who benefit from these activities, aided by bankers, lawyers, and auditors who get paid to look the other way. In Secrecy World, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter Jake Bernstein explores this shadow economy and how it developed, drawing on millions of leaked documents from the files of the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca - a trove now known as the Panama Papers - as well as other journalistic and government investigations. Bernstein shows how shell companies allow the uber wealthy and celebrities to escape taxes and provide cover for illicit activities on a massive scale by crime bosses and corrupt politicians across the globe. Bernstein has traveled to Latin America and Europe and within the United States to uncover how these strands fit together - who is involved, how they operate, and the real-world impact. He also recounts how Mossack Fonseca was finally exposed and what lies ahead for the corporations, banks, law firms, individuals, and governments that were implicated. Secrecy World offers a disturbing and sobering view of how the world really works and raises crucial questions about financial and legal institutions we may once have trusted. This audiobook discusses the fragile scaffolding upholding any tax haven, the flexible laws of banking, and the radiating impact of an international financial scandal. 1. Language: English.

New novel in John Ringo's Black Tide Rising series.From his corner office on the 44th floor of the Bank of the Americas tower on Wall Street, Tom Smith, global managing director for security, could see the Statue of Liberty, Battery Park - and a ravening zombie horde. Officially, Smith was paid to preserve the lives and fortunes of employees, billionaires, and other clients. And with an implacable virus that turned the infected into ravenous zombies tearing through the city, the country, and the world, his job just got a lot harder. Good thing Smith, late of the Australian special forces, isn’t a man to give up easily. But saving civilization is going to take more than the traditional banking toolbox of lawyers, guns, and money. Smith needs infected human spinal tissue to formulate a vaccine - and he needs it by the truckload. To get it, he will have to forge a shady alliance with both the politicians of the City of New York and some of its less savory entrepreneurs. But all of his back-alley dealing may amount to nothing if he can’t stave off the fast-moving disease as it sweeps across the planet, leaving billions dead in its wake. And if he fails, his only fallback is an incomplete plan to move enough personnel to safe havens and prepare to restart civilization. What’s more, there are others who have similar plans - and believe it or not, they’re even less charitable than a Wall Street investment banker. Sooner or later, Smith will have to deal with them. But first he has to survive the fall. A new novel in John Ringo’s best-selling Black Tide Rising zombie apocalypse series. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tristan Morris.

The German Federal Court of Justice ruled in 2000 that an arbitration agreement is eo ipso incapable of being performed if the parties to the arbitration agreement are not able to meet the procedural costs for the proceedings. The book discusses in detail the implications of this case law on arbitration in Germany. Furthermore, eminent lawyers from Austria, France, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States set out the practical implications of impecuniosity and insolvency of parties on the arbitral process under their respective legal systems.
