From a former Wall Street insider and author of All the Presidents' Bankers, a searing exposé of the collusion between public and private banks as they seek to control global markets and dictate economic policyCentral banks and institutions like the IMF and the World Bank are overstepping the boundaries of their mandates by using the flow of money to control global markets and dictate economic policy both at the domestic and global level. These public institutions have become so dependent on funding from private banking and the revolving door between the two worlds is so smooth that public and private banks are effectively working toward the same goals.Packed with bold-faced names from the world of finance--from Janet Yellen, Mario Draghi, and Ben Bernanke to Christine Lagarde and Angela Merkel--Collusion sheds a bright light on the dark conspiracies and unsavory connections between what is ostensibly private and public banking and how it affects us.

Just a few years ago, all you or your company needed was a modest website and a toll-free telephone number. Those days are, of course, long gone. Keeping your customers and clients happy - and trying to attract new ones - demands an entirely new and innovative approach to online commerce.Mitch Joel, one of the world's leading experts in this area, warns that the time has come to hit the CTRL ALT DEL buttons on your computer, and to start building your e-commerce platform and business model from scratch. If you don't, Joel warns, not only will your company begin to slide backwards, but you might find yourself unemployable within five years.That's a very strong warning, but in his new book, Joel explains the convergence of five key factors that are changing online business forever. He outlines what you need to know to adapt right now. He also points to the seven triggers that will help you take advantage of these game-changing factors. In short, this is not a book about 'change management' but rather a book about 'changing both you AND your business model.'

This book is suitable for those preparing for the examinations of ICB, AAT, IAB, OCR, AQA and all other courses in computerised accounting. Learning computerised book-keeping skills is very different from manual accounting. It can seem more like learning computer studies than book-keeping, and it is often difficult to connect it with what may have been previously learned in manual book-keeping. In this book Dr Marshall resolves this problem with the same skill and insight that made his book on manual book-keeping, Mastering Book-keeping, so useful to readers over the years. Deliberately constructing a clear and continuous bridge between the methods so that the student never loses sight of the double entry concept, he presents the material in a way that makes computerised book-keeping clear and easy to understand.
