The fall by James Muir( )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some ten millennia ago, humanity's future is being decided as the Agricultural Revolution changes everything forever. Follow the adventures of one hunter-gatherer band and its heroic leader (Mada) as it faces the advent of civilisation and all its consequences; organised religion and warfare, social classes and government, ownership of goods and property. Suddenly there were places where there was no need to journey or hunt-and-gather, where food and shelter were always present, but all this came at a terrible cost. That price, involving desperate battles for land, impositions of dictator and priest, acceptance of social classes, marriage and the idea of possessions, is a very high one to pay. Ultimately Mada is forced to choose between subjecting his own feelings and freedom to the new society, or to rebel against its unacceptable demands
Working people in Alberta : a history by Alvin Finkel( )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in Undetermined and English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Working People in Alberta traces the history of labour in Alberta from the period of First Nations occupation to the present. Drawing on over two hundred interviews with labour leaders, activists, and ordinary working people, as well as on archival records, the volume gives voice to the people who have toiled in Alberta over the centuries. In so doing, it seeks to counter the view of Alberta as a one-class, one-party, one-ideology province, in which distinctions between those who work and those who own are irrelevant. Workers from across the generations tell another tale, of an ongoing collective struggle to improve their economic and social circumstances in the face of a dominant, exploitative elite. Their stories are set within a sequential analysis of provincial politics and economics, supplemented by chapters on women and the labour movement and on minority workers of colour and their quest for social justice. Published on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Alberta Federation of Labour, Working People in Alberta contrasts the stories of workers who were union members and those who were not. In its depictions of union organizing drives, strikes, and working-class life in cities and towns, this lavishly illustrated volume creates a composite portrait of the men and women who have worked to build and sustain the province of Alberta

The design of a computerized portfolio management information system. by James Muir( )

2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The survey of portfolio management theory and practice showed that there is an obvious need to develop an automated system whereby meaningful data could be presented to the manager and used as the basis for portfolio updating decisions . The system proposed in this paper has divided portfolio management into five component parts: absolute performance measurement, relative performance measurement, absolute evaluation, relative evaluation, and other aids to portfolio management. The analyses provided in each part allow the manager to examine and evaluate portfolios for those criteria which will aid him in more efficiently carrying out his function. Absolute performance measurement is a means of measuring the decisions of the portfolio manager, the totality of buy, sell and hold decisions he makes during a time period. The simple compound rate of return measures the actuarial rate or internal rate earned during a time period. The average unit rate of return eliminates the effect of differing cash flows, ana therefore directly measures the performance of the portfolio manager. Relative performance measurement answers the question of how well the portfolio really aas done by comparing the returns of portfolios to certain rate of return indices and model portfolio returns. Through absolute and relative portfolio evaluation, current portfolio holdings can be studied to see if these holdings meet the investment objectives, and to make some sort of prognosis. ..."--
