Title Capital without borders : wealth managers and the one percent

New Enterprise feed - Wed, 08/17/2016 - 9:24am
Title Capital without borders :
Author Harrington, Brooke, 1968- author.
Publication Date(s) 2016
Format: Books
Summary Capital without Borders will offer the first in-depth, cross-national examination of the wealth management profession: an extremely powerful professional group about which little is known, except that it controls large flows of capital around the world and has a significant impact on growing wealth inequality. With Oxfam estimating that 1 percent of the global population will own more than half the world's assets by 2016, and policymakers voicing increasingly urgent concerns about the political impact of inequality, this book offers a timely look at the evolution and activities of this central group of players. To understand the workings of their profession, and its complex legal and financial innovations, the author spent two years training to become a wealth manager herself. This experience gave her unique access to practitioners and their methods, and the opportunity to conduct over 60 interviews with wealth managers in 17 countries, from Switzerland to the British Virgin Islands, and from Singapore to South Africa. The findings shed light on the dynamics of growing world wealth inequality, and how they are fueled by political and economic forces. The research will inform ongoing debates about globalization and financialization, in part by making abstract issues concrete and easy to understand for a general readership. Capital without Borders explains the use of offshore banks, shell corporations, and trusts to hide billions in private wealth not only from taxation, but from all manner of legal obligations--including to creditors and family members. Such insights will be of interest not only to scholars and policy-makers, but to anyone interested in the world of wealth and high finance.-- Provided by publisher

Title Divorce is in the air : a novel

Title Divorce is in the air :
Author Torné de la Guardia, Gonzalo, 1976- author.
Edition: First edition.
Publication Date(s) 2016
Format: Regular print
Summary "The American debut of a highly acclaimed young Spanish writer: a darkly funny, acerbic novel about love -- and the end of love -- and how hard it can be to let go. There's a lot about Joan-Marc that his estranged second wife doesn't know -- but which he now sets out to tell her. He begins with the failure of his first marriage to an American woman named Helen, describing a vacation they took in a last-ditch attempt to salvage their once-passionate romance. The recollection of this il--fated trip triggers in him a series of flashbacks through which he narrates his life story, hopscotching between Barcelona and Madrid. Starting from pivotal moments in his childhood -- his earliest sexual encounters, his father's suicide, his mother's emotional decline--he moves through the years to the origin of his relationship with Helen and the circumstances surrounding its deterioration. The result is a provocative exploration of memory, nostalgia, romance, the ways in which the past takes hold-- a powerful portrait of a man struggling with his illusions about life and love"-- Provided by publisher.
