Could Have Would Have Should Have from the Author: Tiqui Atencio. What does it take to be a serious art collector? What drives someone to go after a particular work regardless of the cost? What form of addiction or compulsion causes an individual to devote vast amounts of time, money and emotional energy in pursuit of something that is unobtainable to most of us? Tiqui Atencio has been collecting since she was eighteen years old. Decades later she is one of the most prominent collectors of contemporary art, on the boards of international museums and art-world power lists. For Could Have, Would Have, Should Have, she has interviewed more than eighty of the world's most influential collectors - from financiers to artists - and asked them to tell their own story of how they started to collect and what continues to motivate them. In a series of thirty chapters - among them 'Serendipity', 'Obsessions', 'Auction moments', 'What was I thinking?', 'To sell or not sell', 'Being custodians' - they reveal their highs and lows, the successes and regrets, the shared passions and intense rivalries, the works that got away ... and the ones that perhaps should have done. Their anecdotes and recollections reveal the many practical and emotional aspects of collecting art, all the unexpected pleasures and challenges. What emerges is a frank and honest, surprising and eye-opening, and sometimes hilarious account of a lifelong dedication that is described by some as a heroic commitment and by others as a crazy sickness. Cartoons throughout the book by celebrated artist and satirist Pablo Helguera complement the humorous and entertaining tone of the text.

Should Have Could Have Would Have The Role Of Electoral Pressures In Banking Crises from the Author: Monika Kulma. The recent wave of global banking crises raises important questions about the role of public policy during banking crises. Should governments intervene in the banking sector to prevent a crisis? Could policymakers foresee or prevent a crisis? And if so, would politicians act? This thesis adds to current empirical literature on banking crises by investigating how political institutions and considerations affect banking crisis probability. A banking crisis occurs when banking institutions suffer from a major loss of capital, leading to bank failure, government assistance, and/or government intervention. Banking crises are also often preceded by credit booms and a subsequent bust in asset prices when the economic system can no longer sustain the rampant growth. While economic conditions are typically cited as the immediate cause of banking crises, research indicates that economic, institutional, and political decisions help shape an environment that is vulnerable to crisis. I hypothesize that banking crises are the result of government failure to address mounting vulnerabilities due to political considerations. Although policymakers have monetary, fiscal, and regulatory tools to recognize and act against booms, inaction or misguided policy may contribute to the onset of banking crisis--and rightly or wrongly, political considerations play a significant role. I use fixed-effects and random-effects panel logit models that incorporate macroeconomic, institutional and political conditions during 144 episodes of banking crises in 126 countries between the years of 1970-2010. The empirical analysis adds to current literature by controlling for country-specific variation in the panel dataset. The results confirm the hypothesis as well as enhance current literature on the economic and institutional causes of banking crises. Executive elections are found to have a robust and consistently positive relationship with the probability of banking crisis, while legislative elections, more competitive elections, higher fractionalization, and single party governments have a negative, although largely non-significant, effect on banking crisis probability. Political partisanship may also play a role in shaping banking crisis vulnerability. I posit that policymakers face different motivations and constraints based on the role of their policymaking body, leading to different policy outcomes in the face of banking crises.

If you've ever felt blocked without knowing why, this book is for you!"

In INTEGRATE THE SHADOW, MASTER YOUR PATH, Dr. Matt helps us understand that the unconscious really isn't an adversary but you do need to know how to work with it. If good health has eluded you, this book just might show you why and what to do about it." Christopher Buck, CEO, "Humanity Healing International" "Matthew James understands that a true spiritual path incorporates all of who we are: physical, mental, emotions, conscious and unconscious.

But blending ancient Huna tradition with Jungian thought, Matthew demonstrates that it is only by working with our unconscious that we can access Higher Self. A book for all who are on a spiritual journey!" Liane Queiroz, Editor in Chief, "OMTimes Magazine" "I love affirmations and positive thinking -- but sometimes they just don't work, do they? It feels like there's this huge, invisible, negative resistance. Consciously makes no sense but we can't seem to shake it. In INTEGRATE THE SHADOW, MASTER YOUR PATH, Dr. Matthew James reveals why this happens and gives practical tips for uprooting our deep-seated unconscious negative beliefs and transforming them into stronger positive life-affirming beliefs."

How Hitler Could Have Won World War Ii from the Author: Bevin Alexander. Most of us rally around the glory of the Allies' victory over the Nazis in World War II. The story is often told of how the good fight was won by an astonishing array of manpower and stunning tactics. However, what is often overlooked is how the intersection between Adolf Hitler's influential personality and his military strategy was critical in causing Germany to lose the war. With an acute eye for detail and his use of clear prose, acclaimed military historian Bevin Alexander goes beyond counterfactual "What if?" history and explores for the first time just how close the Allies were to losing the war. Using beautifully detailed, newly designed maps, How Hitler Could Have Won World War II exquisitely illustrates the important battles and how certain key movements and mistakes by Germany were crucial in determining the war's outcome. Alexander's harrowing study shows how only minor tactical changes in Hitler's military approach could have changed the world we live in today. How Hitler Could Have Won World War II untangles some of the war's most confounding strategic questions, such as: Why didn't the Nazis concentrate their enormous military power on the only three beaches upon which the Allies could launch their attack into Europe? Why did the terrifying German panzers, on the brink of driving the British army into the sea in May 1940, halt their advance and allow the British to regroup and evacuate at Dunkirk? With the chance to cut off the Soviet lifeline of oil, and therefore any hope of Allied victory from the east, why did Hitler insist on dividing and weakening his army, which ultimately led to the horrible battle of Stalingrad? Ultimately, Alexander probes deeply into the crucial intersection between Hitler's psyche and military strategy and how his paranoia fatally overwhelmed his acute political shrewdness to answer the most terrifying question: Just how close were the Nazis to victory? Why did Hitler insist on terror bombing London in the late summer of 1940, when the German air force was on the verge of destroying all of the RAF sector stations, England's last defense? With the opportunity to drive the British out of Egypt and the Suez Canal and occupy all of the Middle East, therefore opening a Nazi door to the vast oil resources of the region, why did Hitler fail to move in just a few panzer divisions to handle such an easy but crucial maneuver? On the verge of a last monumental effort and concentration of German power to seize Moscow and end Stalin's grip over the Eastern front, why did the Nazis divert their strength to bring about the far less important surrender of Kiev, thereby destroying any chance of ever conquering the Soviets?
