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.

How To Dazzle At Spelling from the Author: Irene Yates. How to Dazzle at Spelling is structured resource for teaching pupils to understand and commit sounds, letter strings and high frequency words to memory. The rules of spelling are often difficult for pupils to assimilate because there are so many exceptions. Therefore rules require reinforcement many times before they are understood. The activities in this book are designed to develop the pupils' visual and aural discrimination, recognition and memory. Pupils will learn that if they visualize the words, as well as sound them out, they have a better chance of spelling them correctly.
