Evidence: Cases, Commentary, and Problems offers comprehensive coverage of the topics and concepts central to evidence law, while remaining concise enough to cover in a four-unit course. Organized around the Federal Rules of Evidence, with carefully edited cases, thought-provoking problems, and a wide variety of secondary material, this casebook gives students a solid foundation in the principles and debates surrounding evidence law without the confusion of more encyclopedic approaches. The Third Edition includes new materials and cases reflecting developments in privilege and physical evidence, confrontation clause jurisprudence, and technical and jurisprudential developments in scientific proof. New problems and cases have been added throughout, with older ones still available on the website for quick reference. Features: Comprehensive coverage of all subjects traditionally covered in evidence courses, as well as areas of emerging debate. Well-selected, tightly edited cases illustrate the central concepts and controversies of the law rather than attempting encyclopedic coverage. Carefully selected problems--some hypothetical and some based on actual casesallow students to test their understanding of particularly confusing rules. Compelling excerpts from treatises and law review articles; portions of the legislative history of the Rules, particularly the Advisory Committee Notes; and congressional reports and floor debates augment the cases. Thoughtful organization of the material is based on the Federal Rules of Evidence and leverages the Rules as a teaching tool. Chapter 1 provides the background knowledge assumed in most discussions of evidence law, including judicial opinions, the Federal Rules of Evidence, and the Legislative History of the Rules. Short enough to teach cover-to-cover in a four-unit course. Thoroughly updated, the revised Third Edition presents: New material reflecting developments in confrontation clause jurisprudence, especially as relates to Melendez-Diaz v. Massachusetts and Michigan v. Bryant. New material on privilege and physical evidence. Numerous new cases added, with older ones moved to the website. Revised material to reflect technical and jurisprudential developments in the field of scientific proof. More problems to challenge students.

A Path Forward for NAFTA

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) ranks at the top of anyone’s list of the most controversial trade deals of all time. Reviled by critics as unfair and as a job destroyer, praised by its defenders as having a documented record of success in spurring economic growth, NAFTA reduced tariff barriers to zero for the United States, Mexico, and Canada and led to a tripling of trade among these three countries over the last 23 years. The Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE) has abundantly detailed the many gains and acknowledged costs of NAFTA in numerous publications. Now that President Donald Trump has launched a renegotiation of NAFTA—having at least for the moment abandoned his 2016 campaign pledge to cancel the pact outright—the fundamental question is: Can such a renegotiation produce a positive result? A broad range of experts who have contributed to this PIIE Briefing say “yes.” The new negotiations can succeed only if they focus on how the agreement can be updated and upgraded, however. NAFTA can be modernized only if President Trump’s zero-sum “America First” agenda is replaced by one that seeks to benefit all three countries and improve their competitiveness in an increasingly competitive global economy. Prioritizing American interests is of course essential in any US trade negotiation. But an obsessive concern about bilateral trade balances and narrow special interests in the United States, as opposed to broader national and regional interests, would not only deadlock the negotiations but also likely lead to inferior outcomes for all three countries, or even a breakdown in the talks and an abrogation of the agreement. And walking away from NAFTA altogether would be disastrous for consumers, producers, and retailers in the United States. As argued in several chapters of this Briefing, abandoning NAFTA would degrade regional competitiveness and terminate jobs across North America, undoing the integration achieved since the agreement’s inception.

Mit diesem Buch erhalten Sie das E-Book inklusive! Ein Buch, das die Börse zum Beben bringt Michael Lewis, begnadeter Sachbuchautor, lüftet mit seinem neuen Buch "das dunkelste Geheimnis der Börse". Wer an Börse denkt, hat oft ein Bild im Kopf: wild gestikulierende Makler, die unter immensem Zeitdruck Dinge kaufen, um sie gleich wieder zu verkaufen. Doch das ist Geschichte. Die Realität an der Börse sieht anders aus - das Parkett hat längst neue Regeln. Michael Lewis, Wirtschaftsjournalist und begnadeter Sachbuchautor, sorgte mit seinem neuen Buch für ein Erdbeben. Der Erzähler unter den Sachbuchautoren enthüllt die Geschichte einer Gruppe genialer Wall-Street-Außenseiter. Sie haben herausgefunden, wie die Börse zum Vorteil von Insidern manipuliert wird, die ohne Risiko Milliarden absahnen und abends ohne eine einzige Aktie nach Hause gehen. Ein Buch über die neuen "Helden" an der Börse Der Entschluss der "Helden": Sie schaffen ein paralleles System, das sich den raffgierigen "Flash Boys" in den Weg stellt. Lewis bringt Licht in die dunkelste Ecke der Börse. Seine filmreife Geschichte über den Kampf um Geschwindigkeit - auf einem Markt, den zwar keiner sieht, der unsere Wirtschaft aber ernsthaft bedroht - bringt die Wall Street zum Beben. Dieses Buch lässt die Börsenwelt erzittern. Einen Tag nach seinem Erscheinen kündigten FBI und amerikanisches Justizministerium an, sie würden Untersuchungen gegen den von Lewis gegeißelten Hochfrequenzhandel an den Börsen einleiten. Lewis ... - "... hat eine neue Ebene der Aufmerksamkeit erreicht". (FAZ) - ... lässt den "The Wolf of Wall Street" wie ein Lamm wirken. - ... ist der derzeit packendste (Reality-)Thriller über die Finanzwelt gelungen. - ... enthüllt, wie Märkte und Privatanleger manipuliert werden.

Andrea Walter untersucht Chancen und Herausforderungen für Kommunalverwaltung in lokaler Politikgestaltung mit Vereinen und Verbänden am Beispiel einer Fallkommune. Sie illustriert das Rollenverständnis von Kommunalverwaltung sowie die Bedeutung von Interaktionsregeln und des lokalen Kontextes. Auf dieser Basis entwickelt sie ein Modell administrativer Governance. Ihre Befunde ordnet sie in den Kontext lokaler Governance, kooperativen Verwaltungshandelns und Fragen der Legitimation ein. Die Autorin beleuchtet damit eine bislang wenig beachtete Facette von Kommunalverwaltung, die primär als Zuarbeiterin von Politik gilt. Dabei umfasst ein wesentlicher Teil ihrer Arbeit auf lokaler Ebene die Interaktion mit (organisierter) Zivilgesellschaft – in Zeiten knapper Kassen und zunehmender Beteiligungsprozesse gilt dies umso mehr.
