This book offers a valuable guide to one of the most challenging areas of commercial law, now frequently referred to as secured transactions, with a focus on Nigerian, Canadian and United States perspectives. A debtor’s ability to provide collateral influences not only the cost of the money borrowed, but also in many cases, whether secured lenders are willing to offer credit at all. The book proposes that increasing access to, and indeed, lowering the cost of credit could tremendously boost economic development, while at the same time arguing that this would best be achieved if the legal framework for secured transactions in Nigeria, and of course, any other country with similar experiences, were designed to allow the use of personal property and fixtures to secure credit. Similarly, the creation, priority, perfection, and enforcement of security interests in personal property should be simplified and supported by a framework that ensures that neither the interests of secured lenders nor debtors are hampered, so as to guarantee the continuous availability of affordable credit as well as debtors’ willingness to borrow and do business. The book further argues that in addition to the obvious preference for real property over personal property by secured lenders due to the unreformed secured-transactions legal framework in Nigeria, its compartmentalized nature has also resulted in unpredictability in commerce and the concomitant effects of poor access to credit. Through the comparative research conducted in this book utilizing the UCC Article 9 and Ontario PPSA as benchmarks, the author provides reformers with a repository of tested secured-transactions law solutions, which law reformers in the Commonwealth countries in Africa and beyond, as well as the business community will find valuable in dealing with issues that stem from secured transactions.

Today's financial system is seen by the most as having a fixed size. Bernard A. Litaer challenges this perspective by showing that there were different economic systems in history and that our present system has arisen from a tacit and problematic collective acceptance. He sees the future in the development of complementary currencies. He explains which money is necessary for which needs and how we can commonly create it. Money only exists because of trust -- where trust has been destroyed, money is loosing its value; chaos and poverty are sad consequences. Lietaer has written an exciting and informative book for anyone who is aware of economic problems, from interested laymen to bankers. Das Geld- und Finanzsystem, wie wir es heute kennen, wird von den meisten als feste Grosse, ja als gottgegeben betrachtet. Bernard A. Lietaer zeigt dagegen, dass es im Laufe der Geschichte ganz andere Systeme gegeben hat und unsere derzeitige Finanzordnung einer stillschweigenden -- inzwischen hochst problematischen -- kollektiven Ubereinkunft entspringt. Die Zukunft sieht er in der Entwicklung von komplementaren Wahrungen. Er erlautert, welches Geld wir fur welche Aufgabe benotigen und wie wir es gemeinsam erschaffen konnen. Denn Geld besteht nur aufgrund von Vertrauen. Wo dieses Vertrauen zerstort wird, verliert Geld seinen Wert; Chaos und Armut sind die traurigen Folgen. Lietaer hat ein ebenso spannendes wie informatives "Enthullungsbuch" geschrieben, das sich vom interessierten Laien uberneugierige Banker an alle wendet, die sich der Geldproblematik bewusst sind.
