CompWare is in serious trouble after a promised merger falls through, so they do what other businesses have done to bolster their public image: They hire a consulting firm to review and streamline their business practices. But there´s something strange about the firm they hire - more specifically, the quirky gentleman who arrives to supervise the project: Mr. Patoff, tall and thin, wearing a bow tie, and with an odd smile that never quite reaches his eyes. In his first interactions, the consultant asks inappropriate questions and generally seems a nuisance. Over time Patoff gains power to the point where he seems to be running the whole company. He enacts arbitrary and invasive changes to office protocol; he places cameras all over the building, causing paranoia among the workers; he calls employees at all hours of the night; and he visits some of their homes and menaces their families. People who defy the consultant get fired...or worse. The employees of CompWare soon realize they´re not just fighting for their jobs: They´re fighting for their lives. The Consultant is a biting workplace satire with the horrific touches only Bentley Little could provide. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ramiz Monsef.

Project finance is comparatively broad term since it includes various sub theories within it. Since it is practically applied in the commercial world, it makes it even broader. When we apply any theory practically, there are hundreds of possible variations. This book, however, covers the basic knowledge of the process only. We have described the theory as a process (which it really is), which makes it even easier to understand all the concepts clearly. This book will surely help one to get a breakthrough in the broad term of project finance. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrea Giordani.

To make good decisions to not to face uncertainty, mathematical finance helps quite a lot. Building on the mathematical models of bonds and the stocks prices, simulation theories for mathematical financing vary with leads in different directions: Black-Scholes arbitrage pricing of options is one of the significant revealing theories used extensively in mathematical financing research and studies. Markowitz portfolio optimization for a capital asset pricing modeling is another crucial research target. Interest rates and the terms structure can be best understood with the principle of no arbitrage. Mathematical finance is best studied with all these three essentials explained.

Guided by the Sharia laws, Islamic banking is grounded on the belief that all types of interest are forbidden. Investing in businesses that deal in arenas against Islamic values - such as pork, alcohol, pornography, or ones that lead to gossip such as media - is completely prohibited. Speculative transactions are also banned by Sharia law. Because of these differences, regular banking financial instruments cannot be used in Islamic finance. However, banking and finance under Islam have the same motives as conventional banking - to generate money for the banking organization by lending capital. Islamic finance focuses on keeping conventional banking within the boundaries outlined by Islamic law. As opposed to the basic principle of conventional banks of ´´transfer of risk´´, the Islamic banks follow the principle of risk-sharing. The laws of Sharia vary from country to country. While in some countries they are liberal, in other places they follow more exact interpretations. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrea Giordani.
