Learn about derivatives with iMinds Money´s insightful fast-knowledge series. In economics, a derivative is defined as a financial instrument or an ´´agreement” between two parties that is based on an ´´underlying” and generally tangible asset, such as a stock or a commodity. For example, during the process of purchase there is a financial exchange for what is essentially a material benefit or instrument. Therefore, a derivative merely ´´derives” its value from this underlying asset which is of true material value. Financial investors use derivatives as a means of leverage in what is known as the derivative market. An example of a common form of derivative is that of a customer who walks into a store and purchases a cigar in exchange for money. In this case, the exchange is complete and both parties hold tangible items. However, if the customer had phoned the dealer in advance, requesting the cigar be held for two hours until he/ she arrived and the retailer agrees, then a derivative is created. The agreement is simply derived from a proposed exchange, that they will trade money for cigar in two hours, not now. iMinds will hone your financial knowledge with its insightful series looking at topics related to Money, Investment and Finance... whether an amateur or specialist in the field, iMinds targeted fast knowledge series will whet your mental appetite and broaden your mind.iMinds unique fast-learning modules as seen in the Financial Times, Wired, Vogue, Robb Report, Sky News, LA Times, Mashable and many others... the future of general knowledge acquisition. 1.

Learn about Price Cartels with iMinds Money´s insightful fast knowledge series. A price cartel is a group of companies that have a formal agreement to fix prices. Companies that form cartels operate within the same industry and, in theory, should be in competition with each other. By forming a cartel, the companies create monopoly power that can be used to increase profits. Where there is an informal rather than formal agreement to fix prices, it is called collusion. Both cases are anticompetitive and breach Antitrust and Competition law in most countries, though there are exceptions.Cartels often form when there is an oligopoly present in a market. A market with theoretically perfect competition is one that contains many small competing companies. The opposite of this ideal is a monopoly, where one large company controls the entire market. An oligopoly exists between these two extremes, though it is closer to a situation where a monopoly exists. It is where there are only a few large companies operating within a market.iMinds will hone your financial knowledge with its insightful series looking at topics related to Money, Investment and Finance.. whether an amateur or specialist in the field, iMinds targeted fast knowledge series will whet your mental appetite and broaden your mind. iMinds will hone your financial knowledge with its insightful series looking at topics related to Money, Investment and Finance.. whether an amateur or specialist in the field, iMinds targeted fast knowledge series will whet your mental appetite and broaden your mind.iMinds unique fast-learning modules as seen in the Financial Times, Wired, Vogue, Robb Report, Sky News, LA Times, Mashable and many others... the future of general knowledge acquisition. 1.

Learn about Antitrust Laws with iMinds Money´s insightful fast knowledge series. Competition is an essential part of the free market. The competition between participants in the market promotes efficiency. This occurs as the supply of a product is improved to provide more attractive prices than a competitor can offer. Competition also drives innovation, as producers develop superior products and services to gain the favor of buyers. As all competitors engage in such behavior, productivity and efficiency increase, contributing to economic growth. All suppliers of a similar product should theoretically offer similar prices in relation to the supply of and the demand for their product. If a company raises the price of its product, consumers will instead buy from a competitor who offers a similar product as a lower cost. As a result, markets should not require regulation by government and should operate to the benefit of consumer welfare. Therefore, competition works to provide economic benefit to the consumer and promote economic growth. However, business practices and behaviors can distort competition to the benefit of the producers. In order to prevent such manipulations of the market, antitrust legislation is put in place to protect the economic welfare of consumers. iMinds will hone your financial knowledge with its insightful series looking at topics related to Money, Investment and Finance.. whether an amateur or specialist in the field, iMinds targeted fast knowledge series will whet your mental appetite and broaden your mind.iMinds unique fast-learning modules as seen in the Financial Times, Wired, Vogue, Robb Report, Sky News, LA Times, Mashable and many others.. the future of general knowledge acquisition. 1.

Short Selling: Money , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 7min

Learn about short selling with iMinds Money´s insightful fast knowledge series. Short selling is the practice of selling borrowed stock at a high price and then buying back the stock at a lower price. A short seller expects to profit from the fall in a stock´s price. The more common investment practice is to ´´go long”, that is, to buy stock with the expectation of the price rising in the future. Simply put, a short transaction sells high and buys low, while a long transaction buys low and sells high. A basic example is as follows. An investor believes that Company A stock is overpriced at $60 per share. The investor then borrows 100 shares and sells them for $6,000. The price of Company A´s shares then fall to $20. The investor buys 100 shares at $20 for $2,000. The investor then returns the shares that have been borrowed and makes a $4,000 profit. iMinds will hone your financial knowledge with its insightful series looking at topics related to Money, Investment and Finance.

A New Dawn: Star Wars

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. . . . ´´The war is over. The Separatists have been defeated, and the Jedi rebellion has been foiled. We stand on the threshold of a new beginning.´´-Emperor Palpatine For a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights brought peace and order to the Galactic Republic, aided by their connection to the mystical energy field known as the Force. But they were betrayed-and the entire galaxy has paid the price. It is the Age of the Empire. Now Emperor Palpatine, once Chancellor of the Republic and secretly a Sith follower of the dark side of the Force, has brought his own peace and order to the galaxy. Peace through brutal repression, and order through increasing control of his subjects´ lives. But even as the Emperor tightens his iron grip, others have begun to question his means and motives. And still others, whose lives were destroyed by Palpatine´s machinations, lay scattered about the galaxy like unexploded bombs, waiting to go off. . . . The first Star Wars novel created in collaboration with the Lucasfilm Story Group, Star Wars: A New Dawn is set during the legendary ´´Dark Times´´ between Episodes III and IV and tells the story of how two of the lead characters from the animated series Star Wars Rebels first came to cross paths. Featuring a foreword by Dave Filoni. Praise for A New Dawn ´´A New Dawn is a fine start to the new Expanded Universe. [John Jackson] Miller steps confidently into the unexplored territory and owns it; he´s crafted a story with pacing and dialogue that feels like classic Star Wars.´´-Nerdist ´´An entertaining adventure . . . with a cast of heroes that mixes laughter with intriguing depths of character. . . . John Jackson Miller packs in plenty of action and surprises.´´-Roqoo Depot ´´A confidently told story that gives fans a lot of reason to be hopeful about what´s to come as we move into this new phase of Star Wars . . . The book certainly got me even more excited for Rebels and to see more of Kanan and Hera´s adventures. We´re also introduced to other characters I would love to see again at some point, whether on Rebels, in another book or, who knows, in live-action at some point.´´-IGN ´´A New Dawn delivers a classic Star Wars experience that fans of all ages will be able to enjoy. It is extremely well-written, with an incredibly diverse cast too. Miller´s prose can easily suck readers in, and leave them speechless when 100 pages have flown by in the blink of an eye.´´-Far Far Away Radio ´´A New Dawn brings us into this new dawn of storytelling with energy, excitement, and characters that have become instantly ensconced into the Star Wars vernacular, and the results will satisfy Star Wars fans of many different palates.´´-Coffee with Kenobi ´´A New Dawn is a well-written novel full of intrigue and twists and turns that does an excellent job of letting Star Wars fans get to know Kanan and Hera.´´-Tosche Station ´´A New Dawn finds an era never before written about in the Star Wars universe-the years prior to the original movie, Episode IV-in robust good health. The narrative takes place on two worlds and a handful of ships in between them, but as with the best of all Star Wars moments, hints at hidden depths beyond.´´-Mashable

Dreaming the Beatles
€ 13.99 *

NPR Best Book of 2017 Winner of the 2017 Virgil Thomson Award for Outstanding Music Criticism ´´This is the best book about the Beatles ever written´´ -Mashable Rob Sheffield, the Rolling Stone columnist and bestselling author of Love Is a Mix Tape offers an entertaining, unconventional look at the most popular band in history, the Beatles, exploring what they mean today and why they still matter so intensely to a generation that has never known a world without them. Dreaming the Beatles is not another biography of the Beatles, or a song-by-song analysis of the best of John and Paul. It isn´t another exposé about how they broke up. It isn´t a history of their gigs or their gear. It is a collection of essays telling the story of what this ubiquitous band means to a generation who grew up with the Beatles music on their parents´ stereos and their faces on T-shirts. What do the Beatles mean today? Why are they more famous and beloved now than ever? And why do they still matter so much to us, nearly fifty years after they broke up? As he did in his previous books, Love is a Mix Tape, Talking to Girls About Duran Duran, and Turn Around Bright Eyes, Sheffield focuses on the emotional connections we make to music. This time, he focuses on the biggest pop culture phenomenon of all time-The Beatles. In his singular voice, he explores what the Beatles mean today, to fans who have learned to love them on their own terms and not just for the sake of nostalgia. Dreaming the Beatles tells the story of how four lads from Liverpool became the world´s biggest pop group, then broke up-but then somehow just kept getting bigger. At this point, their music doesn´t belong to the past-it belongs to right now. This book is a celebration of that music, showing why the Beatles remain the world´s favorite thing-and how they invented the future we´re all living in today.

A New York Times Book Review Notable Book Finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction Longlisted for the Women´s Prize for Fiction ´´An addictive, sprawling epic; I wolfed it down.´´ -Miranda July, author of The First Bad Man and It Chooses You ´´Easily the funniest book I´ve read this year.´´ -GQ A portrait of the artist as a young woman. A novel about not just discovering but inventing oneself. The year is 1995, and email is new. Selin, the daughter of Turkish immigrants, arrives for her freshman year at Harvard. She signs up for classes in subjects she has never heard of, befriends her charismatic and worldly Serbian classmate, Svetlana, and, almost by accident, begins corresponding with Ivan, an older mathematics student from Hungary. Selin may have barely spoken to Ivan, but with each email they exchange, the act of writing seems to take on new and increasingly mysterious meanings. At the end of the school year, Ivan goes to Budapest for the summer, and Selin heads to the Hungarian countryside, to teach English in a program run by one of Ivan´s friends. On the way, she spends two weeks visiting Paris with Svetlana. Selin´s summer in Europe does not resonate with anything she has previously heard about the typical experiences of American college students, or indeed of any other kinds of people. For Selin, this is a journey further inside herself: a coming to grips with the ineffable and exhilarating confusion of first love, and with the growing consciousness that she is doomed to become a writer. With superlative emotional and intellectual sensitivity, mordant wit, and pitch-perfect style, Batuman dramatizes the uncertainty of life on the cusp of adulthood. Her prose is a rare and inimitable combination of tenderness and wisdom; its logic as natural and inscrutable as that of memory itself. The Idiot is a heroic yet self-effacing reckoning with the terror and joy of becoming a person in a world that is as intoxicating as it is disquieting. Batuman´s fiction is unguarded against both life´s affronts and its beauty--and has at its command the complete range of thinking and feeling which they entail.

Learn about Gold Trading with iMinds Money´s insightful fast knowledge series. Gold trading is the investment in and trading of gold as a commodity. It is similar to trading in other commodities such as oil or wood, though there are factors that differentiate it. Gold has represented money and wealth for millennia in different forms. In the present day, we are able to freely own and trade gold in various forms, from gold bars to shares in gold mining companies. Previous economic systems, however, relied directly on gold as a measure of their currency. These systems affect certain aspects of trading in this commodity even now. The notes and coins in your wallet now are termed ´´fiat money”. This means that the government declares them to have worth. The adoption of this form of money is relatively recent in history. Previously, representative money was commonly used. Paper money represented an amount of gold and could be exchanged at a bank for this specie. This was the gold standard (or gold exchange standard) systemiMinds will hone your financial knowledge with its insightful series looking at topics related to Money, Investment and Finance.. whether an amateur or specialist in the field, iMinds targeted fast knowledge series will whet your mental appetite and broaden your mind. iMinds will hone your financial knowledge with its insightful series looking at topics related to Money, Investment and Finance.. whether an amateur or specialist in the field, iMinds targeted fast knowledge series will whet your mental appetite and broaden your mind.iMinds unique fast-learning modules as seen in the Financial Times, Wired, Vogue, Robb Report, Sky News, LA Times, Mashable and many others.. the future of general knowledge acquisition. 1.

Learn about trade embargoes with iMinds Money´s insightful fast knowledge series. Trade embargoes are a form of economic sanction that can be used against another nation. A trade embargo restricts trade with a nation. This may involve banning the import and export of only a few goods, such as armaments, or may encompass a wider range of goods. Embargoes are usually employed to apply pressure to a nation that has or will engage in actions undesirable to the body applying the sanction. Simply put, they are an economic means of applying political pressure. They are a common method for forwarding foreign policy and for enforcing international law. When applied as such, they are often the first sanction applied against an offending nation where subsequent sanctions may lead towards physical conflict. Embargoes and other economic sanctions have been used throughout history to varying degrees. During the Napoleonic Wars of the early 19th century, France embargoed most European trade with Britain. During this time, America also embargoed trade with both England and France after these nations attempted to prevent America´s trade with the other. The American Embargo Act of 1807, however, was more damaging to America´s own economy. It was lifted and eventually replaced with a trade embargo on England alone. This precipitated the War of 1812 between America and England. iMinds will hone your financial knowledge with its insightful series looking at topics related to Money, Investment and Finance.. whether an amateur or specialist in the field, iMinds targeted fast knowledge series will whet your mental appetite and broaden your mind.iMinds unique fast-learning modules as seen in the Financial Times, Wired, Vogue, Robb Report, Sky News, LA Times, Mashable and many others... the future of general knowledge acquisition. 1.
