Soft corruption : how unethical conduct undermines good government and what to do about it by William E Schluter( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New Jersey has long been a breeding ground for political corruption, much of it perfectly legal. In Soft Corruption, a former state senator recounts his fifty-year fight to expose such misconduct. William E. Schluter doesn't simply wade through New Jersey's muck, but provides concrete suggestions for how our political system might be reformed and how citizens can effect that change

"A great power of attorney" : understanding the fiduciary constitution by Gary Lawson( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What kind of document is the United States Constitution and how does that characterization affect its meaning? Those questions are seemingly foundational for the entire enterprise of constitutional theory, but they are strangely under-examined. [The authors] propose that the Constitution, for purposes of interpretation, is a kind of fiduciary, or agency, instrument. The founding generation often spoke of the Constitution as a fiduciary document—or as a "great power of attorney," in the words of founding-era legal giant James Iredell. Viewed against the background of fiduciary legal and political theory, which would have been familiar to the founding generation from both its education and its experience, the Constitution is best read as granting limited powers to the national government, as an agent, to manage some portion of the affairs of "We the People" and its "posterity." What follows from this particular conception of the Constitution—and is of greater importance—is the question of whether, and how much and in what ways, the discretion of governmental agents in exercising those constitutionally granted powers is also limited by background norms of fiduciary obligation. Those norms, the authors remind us, include duties of loyalty, care, impartiality, and personal exercise. In the context of the Constitution, this has implications for everything from non-delegation to equal protection to so-called substantive due process, as well as for the scope of any implied powers claimed by the national government. In mapping out what these imperatives might mean—such as limited discretionary power, limited implied powers, a need to engage in fair dealing with all parties, and an obligation to serve at all times the interests of the Constitution's beneficiaries—[the authors] offer a clearer picture of the original design for a limited government." -- Book jacket

Limping but blessed : wrestling with God after the death of a child by Jason Jones( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After the unexpected, accidental death of his three-year-old son, Jason Jones went on a long, painful journey to make sense of how God could have let this happen to his son and best friend, Jacob, and to their family. And he struggled intensely with his faith after everything he thought about God disintegrated on June 12, 2011. In Limping But Blessed, Jones explores struggling with faith and belief, dealing with his depression and grief, and searching for hope in a hopeless situation. The book includes tales of his darkest days, correspondence he had with Christian theologians, and what he's done to preserve his son's legacy. At some point in each of our lives, something goes terribly wrong, and our faith is shaken to the core. This book is the story of one man's journey through the darkest time of life searching for answers and a grueling attempt to find a sliver of hope to keep holding on

Workers' compensation : analysis for its second century by H. Allan Hunt( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

H. Allan Hunt and Marcus Dillender provide a succinct analysis of the state of WC programs in North America by focusing on three key performance issues: 1) the adequacy of compensation for those disabled in the workplace, 2) return-to-work performance for injured workers, and 3) prevention of disabling injury and disease. Following a brief introductory chapter that provides a discussion of the difficulties of trying to compare so many diverse programs, Hunt and Dillender devote a chapter to each of the three performance issues and provide empirical findings and useful guidance for policymakers

Jean-Guy Desjardins, le phénix de la finance : une biographie by Jacqueline Cardinal( )

1 edition published in 2016 in French and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

« Jean-Guy Desjardins, qualifié ici de « phénix de la finance », est peu connu du commun des mortels. Pourtant, c’est une star du milieu des affaires montréalais. Ce financier a eu deux vies professionnelles, l’une aussi réussie que l’autre. Après avoir vendu, à son corps défendant, TAL Gestion globale d’actifs – entreprise de placement qu’il avait menée pendant près de 30 ans vers des sommets inégalés –, il a refusé de s’arrêter. C’est qu’il n’en avait pas fini avec le rêve qu’il caressait. Après quatre mois de repos, et fort des leçons tirées de cet « échec » – qui n’en était pas un –, il décida de repartir de plus belle. Cette fois, rien ne l’empêcherait de viser encore plus haut. En 2003, à l’âge de 58 ans et bien décidé à ne plus faire de compromis, il se relance fièrement à la conquête de la planète en fondant sa deuxième entreprise, qui serait le prolongement de lui-même et dont le nom évocateur est Fiera Capital. Quatorze ans plus tard, Fiera Capital gère plus de 112 milliards de dollars d’actifs et s’apprête à investir toutes les places d’affaires importantes du monde. Voici l’histoire d’un businessman patient et acharné qui a su recommencer sa vie, tel le fabuleux phénix renaissant de ses cendres. »--
Lucretia Mott speaks: the essential speeches and sermons by Lucretia Mott( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Committed abolitionist, controversial Quaker minister, tireless pacifist, fiery crusader for women's rights--Lucretia Mott was one of the great reformers in America history. Her sixty years of sermons and speeches reached untold thousands of people. Yet Mott eschewed prepared lectures in favor of an extemporaneous speaking style inspired by the inner light at the core of her Quaker faith. It was left to stenographers, journalists, Friends, and colleagues to record her words for posterity. Drawing on widely scattered archives, newspaper accounts, and other sources, Lucretia Mott Speaks unearths the essential speeches and remarks from Mott's remarkable career. The editors have chosen selections representing important themes and events in her public life. Extensive annotations provide vibrant context and show Mott's engagement with allies and opponents. The speeches illuminate her passionate belief that her many causes were all intertwined. The result is an authoritative resource, one that enriches our understanding of Mott's views, rhetorical strategies, and still-powerful influence on American society." -- Publisher's description
