Three Lectures on the Cost of Obtaining Money
by Nassau William Senior

Product Description
Customer Reviews
THE average annual wages of labour in Hindostan are from one pound to two pounds troy of silver a year. In England they are from nine pounds to fifteen pounds troy. In Upper Canada and the United States of America, they are from twelve pounds troy to twenty pounds. Within the same time the American labourer obtains twelve times, and the English labourer nine times as much silver as the Hindoo.<br />The difference in the cost of obtaining silver, or, in other words, in the wages of labour in silver, in different countries at the same period has attracted attention, though not perhaps so much as it deserves, and various theories have been proposed to account for it.<br />[2]<br />It has been attributed to the different degrees of labour requisite to obtain the necessaries of the labourer. In Hindostan it has been said, he requires little clothing or fuel, and subsists on rice, of which he obtains a sufficient quantity with little exertion. But how then do we account for his wages in North America being twenty-five per cent. higher than they are in England, while the labour requisite to obtain necessaries is not much more than half as great in the former country as in the latter? How do we account for the low amount of wages in silver in China, where the labour necessary to obtain necessaries is proverbially great?<br />It has been attributed to the different densities of population. In Hindostan and in Ireland, it has been said, labourers multiply so rapidly, that the market is overstocked with labour, and the price falls from the increased supply. But if this were an universal rule, as the population of England has doubled in the last seventy or eighty years, wages ought to have fallen, whereas they have doubled or trebled in that interval. They have kept on increasing in North America during [3] a still greater increase of population. They are, perhaps, twice as high in Holland as in Sweden, though the population of Holland is ten times as dense as that of Sweden.<br />It has been attributed to the different pressure of taxation: but taxation is nowhere so light as in America, where wages are the highest. It is, probably, heavier in Hindostan than in England, yet wages are nine or ten times as high in England as in Hindostan. So that it might seem that wages are highest where taxation is lowest: but, on the other hand, taxation is lighter in France than in England, yet wages are lower, and lighter in Ireland than in France, yet wages are lower still. It appears, therefore, that there is no necessary connexion between taxation and wages.<br />It has been attributed to the different rates of profit. The average rate of profit in England is supposed to be about one-tenth, or about eleven per cent. per annum. In Hindostan and America it is higher. We will suppose it to be one-sixth, or twenty per cent. per annum, which is probably far too high an estimate. This difference would account for the labourer, whose wages have been [4] advanced for a year, receiving nine-tenths of the value of what he produces in England, and only five-sixths in America and Hindostan, or rather is only a different expression of the same fact, but it does not afford even a plausible solution of the present question.<br />If the difference in wages were solely occasioned by a difference in the rate of profit, whatever is lost by the labourer would be gained by the capitalist, and the aggregate value in silver of a commodity produced by an equal expenditure of wages and profits, or, in my nomenclature, by an equal sum of labour and abstinence, would be every where the same; and in that case, how could both wages and profits be higher in North America than in England?<br />

Crisi d’impresa, Turnaround e Risanamento è un lavoro nato dallo studio approfondito della Crisi aziendale, del Default e del Risanamento delle aziende. Già prima di iniziare il dottorato l’autrice ha analizzato il rischio di Default delle imprese agroalimentari e il rating come sistema di individuazione della probabilità di default in un consorzio di ricerca nell’ambito di un Master di secondo livello. Successivamente rientrando nel 2010 in un gruppo di ricerca sul Turnaround e le strategie di governance ha realizzato questo studio preliminare utile ai fini della successiva selezione del campione delle società analizzate dal gruppo. Le aziende in crisi ad un certo punto del loro ciclo di vita si trovano ad un bivio; da un lato il default e dall’altro la salvezza e questo è il momento di attivare un’efficace strategia di turnaround che possa riportare l’azienda in carreggiata. L’individuazione di queste strategie è di primaria importanza non solo per gli studiosi, ma in primis per i manager. Prima si interviene e migliori saranno i risultati.

This book, as the title implies, tackles a serious topic with a sense of fun. Baby Boomers are reaching age 65 at the rate of approximately 10,000 per day, and many worry when and even whether their investments will be able to sustain them for the rest of their lives. The field of financial planning and advice is complex: it is filled with jargon, acronyms, so-called gurus, pitches, academic theories, and a mind-boggling choice of asset classes. In this very readable book, author and Registered Investment Advisor Scott G. Eichler tackles the main concepts with clarity, humor, and personal stories from his career as a financial advisor. Scott’s intent is that by the end of the book, the reader will have a deeper understanding of asset allocation, market timing, risk categories, types of advisors, threats to retirement security, portfolio allocation strategies, how advisors get paid, and the author’s assessment of many of today’s popular investment “gurus.”

LA VALUTAZIONE DEL PROFILO DI RISCHIO FINANZIARIO DELLE SOCIETÀ E L’INFORMATIVA OBBLIGATORIA SUL RISCHIO DI LIQUIDITÀ E DI CREDITO è un lavoro nato da uno studio accurato dell’evoluzione della normativa italiana ed europea in tema di comunicazione dei rischi finanziari e in particolare dell’IFRS 7, Finacial Instruments: Disclosure. Grazie a questo principio contabile internazionale le società quotate italiane hanno inserito nei bilanci un numero maggiore di disclosure sui rischi finanziari, ma mentre è indubbio l’aumento quantitativo dell’informazione, è dubbio il valore qualitativo di questa comunicazione. A questo proposito lo studio analizza l’utilità dell’informativa introdotta dall’Ifrs 7 per gli analisti finanziari.  La scelta degli analisti è una scelta naturale per l’importanza che gli stessi ricoprono come intermediari nel canale della comunicazione tra le società e il mercato. A completamento della ricerca è stato effettuato un confronto fra le valutazioni degli analisti e gli studenti per avere certezza dell’impatto dell’informativa sui rischi finanziari sia sui soggetti professionali che non professionali e per comprendere a pieno gli effetti della disclosure. <br />Olga

This study examines the association between some governance variables and the risk of default of family and non-family firms. The paper also discusses the nature of family control and the differences to non-family control and their link to firm’s performance. The most relevant indicators utilised by the authors for identifies the probability of default are based on quantitative indicators, but the presence of independent directors or the managements turnover (in particular the change of CEO) are more important for the future life of the firms, especially in the crisis periods. These governance variables are more relevant for the firms that are controlled by founder’s family and in case of succession transition, that is one critical period for the firm. In this study we try to confirm the agency problems in family businesses highlighted by the literature as the relationship between Z-score and the presence of independent directors, the turnover of the directors and the change of CEO. Especially if the latter is also Chairman. We reaffirm in this analysis the necessary distinction between the capital and the company management.
