Inhaltsangabe:Einleitung: Seit nunmehr fast zwei Jahren beherrscht die aktuelle Krise, die sich von der Subprimekrise über die Verbriefungs- zur Finanzmarktkrise hin zur schweren Rezession ausgeweitet hat, deren Auswirkungen aktuell noch nicht genau quantifizierbar sind, die ökonomische Medienlandschaft. Erwartet wird die schwerste Rezession seit der Großen Depression. Eine komplette Analyse der letzten zwei Jahre sprengt den Rahmen einer Diplomarbeit. Diese Arbeit betrachtet daher die der Krise als Verbriefungskrise i.e.S. und klammert die nachfolgende Finanzmarkt- und Wirtschaftskrise weitgehend aus. Aus dieser Sicht ergeben sich drei Themenkomplexe. Zum Verständnis der Blase am US-Eigennutzerimmobilienmarkt ist zunächst einmal die Analyse des US-Eigennutzerimmobilienmarktes sowie zugehörigen Primär- und Sekundärmarktes für Finanzierungen notwendig. Diese Märkte haben eine völlig andere Funktionsweise als z.B. in Deutschland. Zwar wurde die Bedeutung der Government Sponsored Enterprises (GSEs) Fannie Mae und Freddie Mac von Albrecht untersucht; vor Beginn der Krise war das Interesse an diesen Märkten und demnach ist auch das Verständnis dieser Märkte noch immer gering. So zitiert Rudolph einen Immobilienfinanzierungsratgeber aus dem Jahre 1982 und verweist auf zahlreiche innovative Finanzierungsformen, die seit Anfang der 80er Jahre entstanden seien. Die dort angeführten Produkte sind jedoch allesamt Nischenprodukte geblieben und haben keinen Bezug zur aktuellen Krise, lediglich das Konzept der Shared Appreciation Mortgage (SAM) weist eine entfernte Ähnlichkeit zu den (Pay)-option-ARM Darlehen auf. Maßgeblicher Unterschied zwischen beiden Darlehensformen ist, dass ein option-ARM-Darlehen trotz Verschiebung von Zahlungen in die Zukunft noch immer ein Festbetragsanspruch ist, während der Kreditgeber bei SAMs als Ausgleich für einen niedrigeren Zinssatz einen Teil der Wertsteigerung der Immobilie erhält. Zu den Ursachen des Immobilienbooms schreibt das Institut der deutschen Wirtschaft in einer Publikation von Juli 2008: Der Immobilienpreisboom fußte unter anderem auf einem starken Wachstum der verfügbaren Einkommen und einem deutlichen Zuwachs der Beschäftigung . Hier verwechselt das IW Henne und Ei. Richtig ist, dass die Refinanzierung eines Hypothekendarlehens ohne Aufstockung zu niedrigerem Zinssatz bei gleicher Laufzeit einen Einkommenseffekt mit sich bringt. Diese c.p.-Bedingung war jedoch eine Ausnahme und keinesfalls die Regel; [...]

Der Traum des Stiers: Die Schülerin Cassandra Moon leidet seit Lebtag an schwer deutbaren Visionen. Zutiefst vereinsamt versucht sie, den Schulalltag zu meistern. Eines Tages verschwindet einer ihrer Mitschüler spurlos, und niemand ahnt, daß Cassandra eine wichtige Rolle im Leben dieses Schülers spielt. Es handelt sich hier um einen Horror- Roman im Stile Clive Barkers. Die Altersempfehlung ist ab 16. Was harmlos beginnt, entwickelt sich schnell zu einem Höllentrip. The American Monstershow in Germany: 13 schlaflose Nächte. 13 Horrorgeschichten aus deutschen Landen von Gothik-Horror bis Splatterpunk. "...unerwartet, spannend und wirkungsvoll geschrieben!" (Lesermeinung) "...manchmal subtil, manchmal sehr blutig, oft tödlich und zynisch gesellschaftskritisch..."(Lesermeinung) Was wäre gewesen, wenn in den Wendejahren echte Untote aus einer durchs Land ziehenden Show ausgebrochen wären? Wie wäre es, wenn Spülmittel plötzlich süchtig machen würden? Und was ist, wenn statt eines Staubsaugervertreters plötzlich ein Monstrum vor der Wohnungstür steht? Gibt es im Rotlichtviertel Frankfurts wirklich einen Vampir? Gibt es fliegende Ratten? Alle diese Fragen und noch ein paar mehr beantworten die Geschichten in diesem Buch, die alle in den 90iger Jahren des vorigen Jahrhunderts spielen. Wundern Sie sich also nicht, wenn es noch keine Handys, Tabletts und Internetsuchmaschinen gibt, dafür aber tödliche Bedrohungen aus dem Reich des Paranormalen.

Its previous edition hailed as "the best reference for the majority of practicing psychiatrists" (Doody's Book Reviews) and a book that "more than any other, provides an approach to how to think about psychiatry that integrates both the biological and psychological" (JAMA), The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychiatry has been meticulously revised to maintain this preeminence as an accessible and authoritative educational reference and clinical compendium. It combines the strengths of its three editors -- Robert Hales in clinical and community psychiatry, Stuart Yudofsky in neuropsychiatry, and new co-editor Glen Gabbard in psychotherapy -- in recruiting outstanding authors to summarize the latest developments in psychiatry and features 101 contributors, 65 of whom are new to this edition. The book boasts a new interior design, with more figures and color throughout to aid comprehension. Each chapter ends with 5-10 key points, 5-10 recommended readings, and helpful Web sites not only for the clinician but also for patients and family members. The book also includes complimentary access to the full text online. Online benefits include powerful searching, electronic bookmarking, and access by username and password from wherever you have Web access -- especially convenient for times when the print copy of your textbook is not where you are. The online version is accompanied by a downloadable PowerPoint presentation, which contains a wealth of material to enhance classroom presentation, study, and clinical use. Among the improvements to this edition's content: • Of the text's 44 chapters, 23 either feature new topics or have new authors, making this the most completely revised edition yet.• New basic-science chapters on cellular and molecular biology of the neuron and on neuroanatomy for the psychiatrist conveniently distill essential information on the biological foundations of psychiatric disorders for clinicians.• A new chapter on human sexuality and sexual dysfunctions, and another new chapter on treatment of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender patients, equips clinicians to address the entire spectrum of sexual issues and their attendant mental health concerns.• New chapters on nonpharmacological somatic treatments, supportive psychotherapy, and combination psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy augment the section on psychiatric treatments.• A new chapter on the assessment of dangerousness -- an individual's propensity to commit violent acts -- presents helpful guidelines for appropriately evaluating and minimizing the risk of violence in both outpatient and inpatient settings.

With its call for new, revitalized presidential leadership, The American Presidency is as relevant and timely today as when it first appeared in 1940 as a Book-of-the-Month Club selection. In addition to providing innovative ideas about the American presidency, Laski's book examines such contemporary, critical issues as the deadlock between the president and Congress, the crucial need for a coherent presidential direction of foreign policy, the relative unimportance of the presidnet's cabinet, and the weaknesses of America's pwer system in dealing with special interest groups.

In this work, which won the 1924 Pulitzer Prize in history, McIlwain argues that the central problem in the genesis of the American Revolution was the determination of the exact nature of the British Empire's constitution. "After a searching examination of a wealth of judicial precedents drawn largely from Ireland's relations with the English king and parliament, the author reaches the conclusion that 'there was a bona fide constitutional issue which preceded the American Revolution, and from which it in part resulted.' He contends that, strictly from the legal standpoint, the colonists had a number of good constitutional precedents to support their position.": Allison, Fay, [et. al.] A Guide to Historical Literature cited in Marke, A Catalogue of the Law Collection at New York University (1953) 377.

The American Ascendancy

How the United States Gained and Wielded Global Dominance

Author: Michael H. Hunt

Publisher: Univ of North Carolina Press

ISBN: 9780807883419

Category: History

Page: 416

View: 3798

A simple question lurks amid the considerable controversy created by recent U.S. policy: what road did Americans travel to reach their current global preeminence? Taking the long historical view, Michael Hunt demonstrates that wealth, confidence, and leadership were key elements to America's ascent. In an analytic narrative that illuminates the past rather than indulges in political triumphalism, he provides crucial insights into the country's problematic place in the world today. Hunt charts America's rise to global power from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries to a culminating multilayered dominance achieved in the mid-twentieth century that has led to unanticipated constraints and perplexities over the last several decades. Themes that figure prominently in his account include the rise of the American state and a nationalist ideology and the domestic effects and international spread of consumer society. He examines how the United States remade great power relations, fashioned limits for the third world, and shaped our current international economic and cultural order. Hunt concludes by addressing current issues, such as how durable American power really is and what options remain for America's future. His provocative exploration will engage anyone concerned about the fate of our republic.

Literary histories, of course, do not have a reason for being unless there exists the literature itself. This volume, perhaps more than others of its kind, is an expression of appreciation for the talented and dedicated literary artists who ignored the odds, avoided temptations to write for popularity or prestige, and chose to write honestly about the American West, believing that experiences long knowns to be of historical importance are also experiences that need and deserve a literature of importance.
