Free to choose a personal statement by Milton Friedman ( Visual )
6 editions published between 1980 and 2007 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The first major TV series featuring Milton Friedman, Nobel Prize-winning economist. These programs, filmed on location around the world, have helped millions of people understand the close relationship between the ideas of human freedom and economic freedom. The interaction between those ideas has created in the United States the richest and freest society the world has ever known. Milton Friedman sees this success threatened by the tendency in the last few decades to assume that government intervention is the answer to all problems. In these programs, which first aired on January 11, 1980, Dr. Friedman focuses on basic principles. How do markets work? Why has socialism failed? Can government help economic development? The 1980 version consists of 10 one-hour programs

Politically exposed persons preventive measures for the banking sector by Theodore S Greenberg ( )
6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In recent years, the revelations of grand corruption and the scale of the plunder of state assets has led to greater scrutiny of financial relationships with politically exposed persons (PEPs) and potential money laundering risks associated with these customers. PEPs-individuals who are or have been entrusted with prominent public functions, their family members, and close associates-represent a greater risk because of the possibility that such individuals may abuse their position and influence to accept and extort bribes and misappropriate state assets. Implementation of an effective PEPs regime is a critical component of the prevention and detection of transfers of proceeds of crime and therefore ultimately in the process of recovering these proceeds of corruption. The United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) and the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) Forty Recommendations on Money Laundering require countries to ensure that financial institutions implement systems for identification and verification of PEP customers, enhanced due diligence procedures at account opening, and ongoing monitoring. Notwithstanding the efforts by many financial institutions and regulatory authorities to prevent corrupt PEPs from entering and using the financial system to launder the proceeds of corruption, there has been an overall failure in the effective implementation of risk based systems to detect corruption proceeds. In this context, Politically Exposed Persons-A Guide on Preventive Measures for the Banking Sector is designed to help build regimes that will facilitate the identification of corrupt PEPs and their efforts to launder money through banks. The authors identify recommendations and good practices aimed at improving compliance with international standards and increasing supervisory effectiveness

The failure of socialism ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Friedman argues that socialism is based on the premise that people are better off when experts guide their lives. He uses U.S. public education as a case study of the failure of socialism. He endorses a voucher system to give choice and control back to parents because giving individuals the power to choose will lead to better results than centrally planned activity. In a discussion following the documentary, Friedman explores the subject further with Gordon Tullock of the University of Arizona and Henry Levin of Stanford University. They debate what standards government should set for education, the role of public and private schools, the special needs of underprivileged children, and how much control parents should have over the schools
