A History of INTEREST RATESThe late Sidney Homer published the First Edition of A History of Interest Rates in 1963 because he believed that a comprehensive history of this universal and basic economic and commercial price was necessary. Now in its Fourth Edition, A History of Interest Rates has become a classic in the fields of economics and finance.This one-of-a-kind guide presents a readable account of interest rate trends and lending practices spanning over four millennia of economic history. Filled with in-depth insights and illustrative charts and tables, this updated Fourth Edition provides a historical perspective of interest rate movements as well as a new chapter of contemporary material and added discussions of interest rate developments over the past ten years.A sampling of eras and areas covered include:* Ancient Times: Mesopotamia, Greece, and Rome* Medieval Times and Renaissance Europe: Italy, Spain, Germany, France, and more* Modern Europe and North America to 1900: England, France, and other European countries, as well as the United States* Europe and North America since 1900: England, France, Germany, and Italy, as well as Canada and the United States* Other countries and regions in the 1900s: Japan, Russia, China, and Latin AmericaA History of Interest Rates presents a very readable account of interest rate trends and lending practices over four millennia of economic history. Despite the paucity of data prior to the Industrial Revolution, authors Homer and Sylla provide a highly detailed analysis of money markets and borrowing practices in major economies. Underlying the analysis is their assertion that "the free market long-term rates of interest for any industrial nation, properly charted, provide a sort of fever chart of the economic and political health of that nation." Given the enormous volatility of rates in the 20th century, this implies we're living in age of political and economic excesses that are reflected in massive interest rate swings.

Munich & the Bavarian Alps: Travel Adventures ,...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In addition to its wealth of cultural sights, the European Alps offer a wider range of outdoor recreation than any other similarly sized region in the world. Adventurers of all ages hike hut-to-hut on multi-day treks, skiers slide year-round on glacial slopes, and Sunday walkers stroll forested trails. Bikers loop icy blue lakes, and mountaineers scale up waterfalls and down canyon cliffs. Europeans cherish their wilderness areas, and none more so than the pristine forests of the Alps. Modern adventurers run the gamut from rich to poor, young to old, and native to transient foreigner. So take a look around. That bus driver.... This tour guide.... Your hotel concierge.... They may just be showing you the Europe they think you want to see. Take a moment to ask how they spend their own free time - odds are that each will spend a day outdoors this weekend. Want to know where they go? Here is a guide to the best sights and adventures in the mountainous regions of Alpine Germany. Based on experience gained through more than a decade of living in, traveling around, and writing about the Alps, we spotlight the best gateway cities, the best sightseeing bases, and the best outdoor adventures. Here, we cover the places where you're likely to end up when crossing the European Alps and the places that you shouldn't miss in-between, even if you have only a few days or a week to spend. For each region, we've selected a handful of bases - villages, towns, national parks, and resorts - and highlighted the sights and adventures convenient to each. Land of fairy tales, fanciful castles, and fabulous Alpine terrain, Bavaria squeezes a wealth of attractions into a compact section of the Alps. The region centers on the bustling metropolis of Munich, a historical city famed for both its grand architecture and its great beer. To the southwest, plains stretch into Alpine foothills fronting Füssen and its famous castles. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sally Martin.

At a time when the power of schools and both state and federal education authorities to guide young people's sense of belonging is being challenged by multilingualism, by the claims of supra- and subnational regions and minorities, by memories of national catastrophes and crimes, and by out-of-school educational media, this collection of essays provides an apposite exploration of the ways in which shared narratives continue to be transmitted and learnt. Its authors, whose work emerged from a series of conferences organised by the French National Institute for Pedagogical Research in Lyon, Barcelona and Paris in 2010, demonstrate not only ways in which multiple disciplines (including history, literature, social and language studies) address young people's sense of attachment, but also how challenges to educational policy are reflected in school textbooks and curricula in Algeria, Bulgaria, Catalonia, France, Galicia, Germany, Quebec, Senegal and the USA. These studies about the role of education in relation to largely tenacious but shifting national identities should appeal to specialists of education, nationalism studies, history and political science.

Bifurcation Theory for Hexagonal Agglomeration ...
160,49 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The self-organization of hexagonal agglomeration patterns of industrial regions was first predicted by the central place theory in economic geography based on empirical investigations of cities in West Germany. Its emergence for economic geography models was envisaged by Krugman. This book produces a theoretical foundation for this prediction by its investigation of the bifurcations of economic geography models for a system of cities on a hexagonal lattice. After a brief introduction of the central place theory, the prediction is verified using group-theoretic analysis by first solving the bifurcation equation and next by applying an equivariant branching lemma. In addition, a numerical recipe is proposed for the static bifurcation analysis. Although it is customary to consider an infinite group in group-theoretic analysis of the hexagonal lattice, a finite group is considered compatible with the problem setting of a city location on each node. Several mathematical methodologies indispensable for tackling the present problem are gathered in a self-contained manner. This book consequently offers a complete guide for the application of group-theoretic bifurcation analysis to economic agglomeration, while presenting related backgrounds of central place theory and geographical models.
