Black Tax - Burden Or Ubuntu? (Paperback): Niq Mhlongo Black Tax - Burden Or Ubuntu? (Paperback)

A secret torment for some, a proud responsibility for others, ‘black tax’ is a daily reality for thousands of black South Africans. In this thought-provoking and moving anthology, a provocative range of voices share their deeply personal stories.

With the majority of black South Africans still living in poverty today, many black middle-class households are connected to working-class or jobless homes. Some believe supporting family members is an undeniable part of African culture and question whether it should even be labelled as a kind of tax. Others point to the financial pressure it places on black students and professionals, who, as a consequence, struggle to build their own wealth. Many feel they are taking over what is essentially a government responsibility. The contributions also investigate the historical roots of black tax, the concept of the black family and the black middle class.

In giving voice to so many different perspectives, Black Tax hopes to start a dialogue on this widespread social phenomenon.

P.M. Vasudev
R3,252 Discovery Miles 32 520 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This timely and engaging book examines how maximising shareholder value has played a dominant role in corporate governance over recent decades, and analyses the resulting effect on share prices in the stock markets.

P. M. Vasudev explores the laws intended to protect stakeholders and deftly unpacks the shortcomings in employment-related laws and antitrust enforcement. Demonstrating how alternative dispute resolution can be used to promote stakeholder governance, the book explains how the overly broad business judgment rule impedes effective adjudication of complex stakeholder disputes.

Howard Chitimira; Edited by Leila Samodien
R365 R322 Discovery Miles 3 220 Save R43 (12%) Ships in 4 - 8 working days

Principles of Market Abuse Regulation: A Comparative South African Perspective arguably offers the most comprehensive study of the regulation and enforcement of anti-market abuse laws in South Africa today. Accordingly, the book examines the regulation of the South African securities and financial markets to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the country's anti-market abuse laws. In this regard, the book provides that inadequate and inconsistent regulation of the securities and financial markets could give rise to low investor confidence, market volatility and poor market integrity. The author traces the regulation of market abuse under the Financial Markets Act 19 of 2012 and recommends measures that could enhance the combating of market abuse in the South African securities and financial markets. The Financial Sector Regulation Act 9 of 2017, which is set to expand the mandate of the Financial Services Board, is also considered. The global financial crisis of 2007-2009 provides context for the book. Events covered include South African and American international banks' collusion and market manipulation involving price-fixing, market allocation and rigging in the trading of foreign currency pairs of the South African rand since 2007.

R2,702 Discovery Miles 27 020 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Demonstrating how the nature of debt for those on low incomes has changed radically over the last decade, the chapters provide insight into how structural inequality was exacerbated by changes in the redistributive state, the legal system, and the welfare system. The examination occurs on a number of levels and these issues are explored through the lens of power, place, and class.

Financial Regulation and Civil Liability in European Law (Hardcover): Olha O. Cherednychenko, Mads Andenas Financial Regulation and Civil Liability in European Law (Hardcover)
Olha O. Cherednychenko, Mads Andenas
R2,976 Discovery Miles 29 760 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This insightful book provides a comprehensive analysis of the interplay between EU financial regulation and civil liability. It explores this interrelationship in order to determine whether a coordinated approach has been adopted. Examining EU law and the law of several current EU member states, one former EU member state, and the US, expert contributors consider the level of coordination between financial regulation and civil liability achieved throughout different sectors of financial services and activities, such as payments, credit, and securities, as well as among the various actors involved in public, private, and hybrid enforcement, such as courts, alternative dispute resolution bodies, and financial regulators. Distinguished scholars contribute a variety of perspectives, combining top-down and bottom-up legal comparative analysis, law and economics, and experimentalist governance, in order to outline directions for cross-sector and cross-actor coordination to develop more fully at EU and national level. In doing so, they highlight the need to fundamentally rethink the role of civil liability, and private law remedies more generally, as a regulatory and compensatory tool in European financial law. Scholars across the fields of European and private law, financial regulation and economics will find this book to be an astute and engaging read. It will also prove an indispensable guide for practitioners working in financial regulation and private law throughout the EU and beyond.

Combating Money Laundering in Africa - Dealing with the Problem of PEPs (Hardcover): John Hatchard Combating Money Laundering in Africa - Dealing with the Problem of PEPs (Hardcover)
John Hatchard
R2,838 Discovery Miles 28 380 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This insightful book critically explores the political, constitutional, legal, and economic challenges of effectively combating the laundering of the proceeds of crime by politically exposed persons (PEPs) in Africa. Professor John Hatchard draws on numerous recent examples from Africa and beyond, arguing that a three-pronged approach is required to address the issues surrounding money laundering by PEPs; there must be action at the national, transnational, and corporate levels. Taking a forward-thinking perspective, he reviews the strategies which would make this approach effective and offers suggestions for their further enhancement. Professor Hatchard also provides an in-depth analysis of the different money laundering techniques used in African countries and suggests how constitutions, financial intelligence units, asset recovery mechanisms, and the African Court of Justice and Human and Peoples' Rights can be utilised to tackle the problem. The book concludes that while challenges remain, there is cause for optimism that money laundering by African PEPs can be addressed successfully. This book will be of interest to academics and students of law, particularly those focusing on financial law, corruption, and economic crime. Containing a wealth of practical case studies, it will also be beneficial for legal practitioners, policymakers, public officials, and civil society organisations.

Tax Expenditures and Environmental Policy will be of great interest to students and scholars in both tax and environmental law. It will also offer an essential tool for policy makers and practitioners through its focus on policy design and its doctrinal analysis.

Free market capitalism is one of humanity's greatest inventions, and the greatest source of prosperity the world has ever seen. But it's also on the verge of destroying the planet and destabilizing society in its single-minded pursuit of maximizing shareholder value. Rebecca Henderson, McArthur University Professor at Harvard University, argues for a new framework; one that can simultaneously make a positive societal impact by confronting the realities of the environment and the need to address social and economic inequality, while also delivering sustained financial performance to ensure economic growth that brings prosperity and wellbeing to society as a whole. Drawing on the lessons of companies from around the world who are acting on this responsibility - who are not only surviving but are thriving, becoming leaders in their industries and beginning to drive the wheels of change - Professor Henderson proves that this is not only a moral imperative for business but also the only way to remain competitive in our changing world.
