The Impact Of The Volume Contract Concept On The Global Community Of Shippers: The Rotterdam Rules In Perspective, Abhinayan Basu Bal 2009 Lund University

The Impact Of The Volume Contract Concept On The Global Community Of Shippers: The Rotterdam Rules In Perspective, Abhinayan Basu Bal

Abhinayan Basu Bal

The volume contract regime is probably the most revolutionary and undoubtedly the most controversial feature of the Rotterdam Rules. Much has been said about its legal characteristics, and the focus has been on those provisions which allow derogation from the Rules. It has even caused the Rules to be described as taking world shipping back to the chaos that prevailed before the Hague Rules. However, the concept of the volume contract albeit in another incarnation, generally referred to as the service contract, and regarded mainly as an American phenomenon ^ has already proved to be of considerable benefit to the global ...

Managing Fiscal Volatility By Redefining ‘Tax Cuts’ And ‘Tax Hikes’, David Gamage, Jeremy Bearer-Friend 2009 Berkeley Law

Managing Fiscal Volatility By Redefining ‘Tax Cuts’ And ‘Tax Hikes’, David Gamage, Jeremy Bearer-Friend

David Gamage

This report analyzes how states should cope with fiscal volatility at the level of institutional-design policy. We propose that states reconsider how they define terms like ‘‘tax cuts’’ and ‘‘tax hikes.’’ By adopting a new baseline for defining those terms, states can increase the likelihood of using tax rate adjustments to cope with fiscal volatility rather than more harmful spending fluctuations.

Comparative Income Taxation: A Structural Analysis, Hugh Ault, Brian Arnold 2009 Boston College Law School

Comparative Income Taxation: A Structural Analysis, Hugh Ault, Brian Arnold

Hugh J. Ault

The purpose of this book is to compare different solutions adopted by nine industrialized countries to common problems of income tax design. As in other legal domains, comparative study of income taxation can provide fresh perspectives from which to examine a particular national system. Increasing economic globalization also makes understanding foreign tax systems relevant to a growing set of transnational business transactions. Comparative study is, however, notoriously difficult. Full understanding of a foreign tax system may require mastery not only of a foreign language, but also of foreign business and legal cultures. It would be the work of a lifetime ...


Diversity Science: Why And How Difference Makes A Difference., V Plaut 2009 Berkeley Law

Diversity Science: Why And How Difference Makes A Difference., V Plaut

Victoria Plaut

This article proposes that addressing the complex ethnic and racial issues of the 21st century will require a diversity science. A diversity science will consider how people create, interpret, and maintain group differences among individuals, as well as the psychological and societal consequences of these distinctions. A diversity science will recognize that these significant social distinctions (in the case of this article, race and ethnicity) are not simply natural, neutral, or abstract. Instead they are created and recreated in the process of everyday social interactions that are grounded in historically derived ideas and beliefs about difference and in a set ...


Pedagogical Strategies For Teaching Moral Minimalism, Richard McGowan, Matthew McGowan, Garret McGowan 2009 Butler University

Pedagogical Strategies For Teaching Moral Minimalism, Richard Mcgowan, Matthew Mcgowan, Garret Mcgowan

Richard McGowan

College of BusinessIn 1986, Stephen Satris’s article, Student Relativism, meant to offer analysis of, and suggest some methods for dealing with, a quite particular and peculiar problem in teaching philosophy…I speak of the problem of student relativism. (Satris, 1986, p. 193) The problem has not gone away. However, psychological research suggests that the problem of relativism, a problem especially critical for teaching business ethics (or any other class in applied philosophy) is not insolvable. This paper, extending earlier work by R. McGowan, provides a brief account of research by Lawrence Kohlberg and William Perry on the structure of ...

Ethos Of Independence Across Regions In The United States: The Production-Adoption Model Of Cultural Change., S Kitayama, L Conway, P Pietromonaco, H Park, V Plaut 2009 Berkeley Law

Ethos Of Independence Across Regions In The United States: The Production-Adoption Model Of Cultural Change., S Kitayama, L Conway, P Pietromonaco, H Park, V Plaut

Victoria Plaut

Contemporary U.S. culture has a highly individualistic ethos. Nevertheless, exactly how this ethos was historically fostered remains unanalyzed. A new model of dynamic cultural change maintains that sparsely populated, novel environments that impose major threats to survival, such as the Western frontier in the United States during the 18th and 19th centuries, breed strong values of independence, which in turn guide the production of new practices that encourage self-promotion and focused, competitive work. Faced with few significant threats to survival, residents in traditional areas are likely to seek social prestige by adopting existing practices of other, higher status groups ...
