"Most European countries are rather small, yet we know little about their monetary history. This book analyses for the first time the experience of seven small states (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and Switzerland) during the last hundred years, starting with the restoration of the gold standard after World War I and ending with Sweden's rejection of the Euro in 2003. The comparative analysis shows that for the most part of the twentieth century the options of policy makers were seriously constrained by a distinct fear of floating exchange rates. Only with the crisis of the European Monetary System (EMS) in 1992-93 did the idea that a flexible exchange rate regime was suited for a small open economy gain currency. The book also analyses the differences among small states and concludes that economic structures or foreign policy orientations were far more important for the timing of regime changes than domestic institutions and policies"--

"The book emphasizes an enterprise risk management approach that utilizes actual business data to estimate the probability and impact of key risks in an organization. While the approach is anlytical, the author has boiled it down to make it accessible to line managers and high level executives alike. The key lessons involve basing risk estimates and prevention techniques on known quantities rather then subjective estimates, which many popular ERM methodologies consist of. It will include practical examples from various industries that demonstrate key concepts, implementation guidance to get started, and tables of risk indicators and metrics, physical structure diagrams, and graphs. Tentative Table of Contents: Chapter 1 Corporate Governance: What a Mess Chapter 2 What ERM Is And What It Is Not; Chapter 3 Understanding What the Business Is; Chapter 4 Defining What True Business Risk Is; Chapter 5 Objectively Defining Risk; Chapter 6 Building a Fluid/Dynamic Risk Model; Chapter 7 The Strategy: Evolving The Fluid Risk Model; Chapter 8 The Future Evolution of the Model; Chapter 9 Related Topics and Special Risk Situations; Chapter 10 Maximizing Impact - Minimizing Exposure"--

Alfred H. Barr, Jr., and the intellectual origins of the Museum of Modern Art by Sybil Gordon Kantor( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in Italian and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Growing up with the twentieth century, Alfred Barr (1902-1981), founding director of the Museum of Modern Art, harnessed the cataclysm that was modernism. In this book--part intellectual biography, part institutional history--Sybil Gordon Kantor tells the story of the rise of modern art in America and of the man responsible for its triumph. Following the trajectory of Barr's career from the 1920s through the 1940s, Kantor penetrates the myths, both positive and negative, that surround Barr and his achievements. Barr fervently believed in an aesthetic based on the intrinsic traits of a work of art and the materials and techniques involved in its creation. Kantor shows how this formalist approach was expressed in the organizational structure of the multidepartmental museum itself, whose collections, exhibitions, and publications all expressed Barr's vision. At the same time, she shows how Barr's ability to reconcile classical objectivity and mythic irrationality allowed him to perceive modernism as an open-ended phenomenon that expanded beyond purist abstract modernism to include surrealist, nationalist, realist, and expressionist art. Drawing on interviews with Barr's contemporaries as well as on Barr's extensive correspondence, Kantor also paints vivid portraits of, among others, Jere Abbott, Katherine Dreier, Henry-Russell Hitchcock, Philip Johnson, Lincoln Kirstein, Agnes Mongan, J.B. Neumann, and Paul Sachs
