While serving as the first Treasury Secretary from 1789 to 1795, Alexander Hamilton engineered a financial revolution. Hamilton established the Treasury debt market, the dollar, and a central bank, while strategically prompting private entrepreneurs to establish securities markets and stock exchanges and encouraging state governments to charter a number of commercial banks and other business corporations. Yet despite a recent surge of interest in Hamilton, U.S. financial modernization has not been fully recognized as one of his greatest achievements. This book traces the development of Hamilton's financial thinking, policies, and actions through a selection of his writings. The financial historians and Hamilton experts Richard Sylla and David J. Cowen provide commentary that demonstrates the impact Hamilton had on the modern economic system, guiding readers through Hamilton's distinguished career. The book showcases Hamilton's thoughts on the nation's founding, the need for a strong central government, confronting problems such as a depreciating paper currency and weak public credit, and the architecture of the financial system. His great state papers on public credit, the national bank, the mint, and manufactures instructed reform of the nation's finances and jumpstarted economic growth. Hamilton practiced what he preached: he played a key role in the founding of three banks and a manufacturing corporation, and his deft political maneuvering and economic savvy saved the fledgling republic's economy during the country's first full-blown financial crisis in 1792. Sylla and Cowen center Hamilton's writings on finance among his most important accomplishments, making his brilliance as an economic policy maker accessible to all interested in this Founding Father's legacy.

"Since the dawn of the digital age, decision-making in finance, employment, politics, health and human services has undergone revolutionary change. Today, automated systems - rather than humans - control which neighborhoods get policed, which families attain needed resources, and who is investigated for fraud. While we all live under this new regime of data, the most invasive and punitive systems are aimed at the poor. In Automating Inequality, Virginia Eubanks systematically investigates the impacts of data mining, policy algorithms, and predictive risk models on poor and working-class people in America. The book is full of heart-wrenching and eye-opening stories, from a woman in Indiana whose benefits are literally cut off as she lays dying to a family in Pennsylvania in daily fear of losing their daughter because they fit a certain statistical profile"--Publisher's website.

Conclusions and recommendations Michael B. Gerrard and Tracy Hester.
"Climate change is increasingly recognized as a global threat, and is already contributing to record-breaking hurricanes and heat waves. To prevent the worst impacts, attention is now turning to climate engineering - the intentional large-scale modification of the environment to reduce the impact of climate change. The two principal methods involve removing some carbon dioxide from the atmosphere (which could consume huge amounts of land and money, and take a long period of time), and reducing the amount of solar radiation reaching the earth's surface, perhaps by spraying aerosols into the upper atmosphere from airplanes (which could be done quickly but is risky and highly controversial). This is the first book to focus on the legal aspects of these technologies: what government approvals would be needed; how liability would be assessed and compensation provided if something goes wrong; and how a governance system could be structured and agreed internationally"-- Provided by publisher.
"These facts and experiences emphasize that climate change is among the most fundamental and important challenges of our era, and certainly the greatest in the realm of environmental law and policy. Both of us also share the conviction that, based on past performance and likely future behavior, the world's nations and leaders have not taken action that is remotely enough to answer the peril. Until we collectively find a way to reduce, then stop, and then remove our emissions of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, the urgency of the challenge and the threat of losses will only grow. This situation demands that we explore all options and possible solutions"-- Provided by publisher.

"Like many beliefs, religious views matter across an individual's life and the life cycle of a family - from birth to marriage, through child-rearing, and, eventually, death. This volume examines clashes over religious liberty within the personal realm of the family. Against swirling religious beliefs, secular values, and legal regulation, this volume offers a forward-looking examination of tensions between religious freedom and the state's protective function. Contributors unpack some of the Court's recent decisions and explain how they set the stage for ongoing disputes. They evaluate religious claims around birth control, circumcision, modesty, religious education, marriage, polygamy, shared parenting, corporal punishment, faith healing, divorce, and the end of life. Authors span legislators, attorneys, academics, journalists, ministers, physicians, child advocates, and representatives of minority faiths. The Contested Place of Religion in Family Law begins an overdue conversation on questions dividing the nation"-- Provided by publisher.
"This volume comes at an important moment. In the space of three years, the United States Supreme Court decided cases about marriage equality, the government's ability to require contraceptives as part of employer health policies, and the ability of religious actors to step aside from duties that otherwise apply. The cases ranked among the most closely watched of each term. Two of them captured the nation's attention and highlighted the sharp divide on the Court-and among Americans-as to these issues"-- Provided by publisher.

  • Machine generated contents note: Introduction; 1. The theory of exhaustion; 2. The doctrine of exhaustion in the copyright law of the European Union; 3. The first sale doctrine in the copyright law of the United States; 4. Digital exhaustion in the European Union and the United States; Conclusion.
"In this timely book, copyright scholar Péter Mezei offers a comprehensive examination of copyright exhaustion, including its historical development, theoretical framework, practical application, and policy considerations. He compares the substantive norms and case law for the first-sale doctrine in the United States and in the European Union, covering both analogue and digital applications in detail, and in doing so questions the common rejection of exhaustion in the resale of digital subject matter such as computer programs, sound recordings, audiovisual works, and e-books. Instead, he proposes a digital first-sale doctrine that would offer legal consistency to copyright law and a technologically feasible framework for content producers and consumers. This book should be read by anyone interested in how copyright law continues to evolve in conjunction with the digital world"-- Provided by publisher.

This book should be read by anyone interested in how copyright law continues to evolve in conjunction with the digital world.After spending seven years doing research on P2P file sharing, and completing my book on the topic, I was ready to turn to new topics of copyright law. During the fall of 2013, I met, coincidentally, one of my then students, Juan Pinoargote, at the local market in Turku, Finland. He was eager to know my opinion on the then fresh ReDigi ruling. I was familiar with the UsedSoft case, but ReDigi was new to me. Consequently, Juan deserves the first handshake, as he drew my attention to the idea of digital exhaustion"-- Provided by publisher.
