Описание: Are you paying more taxes than you have to? The IRS is certainly not going to tell you about a deduction you failed to take, and your accountant is not likely to take the time to ask you about every deduction you`re entitled to. As former IRS Commissioner Mark Everson admitted, "If you don`t claim it, you don`t get it. That`s money down the drain for millions of Americans." This invaluable book, updated to reflect changes in tax law, not only lists the individual items that are deductible-from Internet domain name costs to theft losses-but also explains where to list them on your income tax form. "Tax law isn`t easy," the author explains, "but this book is." The twelfth edition will be completely updated to include new changes in tax law, a chapter on home-based businesses, and include a special "jump out" highlights in the A-to-Z listings for any deduction that has special rules for home-based businesses.
The story of The Hundreds and the precepts that made it an iconic streetwear brand by Bobby Hundreds himself
Streetwear exists in that rarefied space where genuine "cool" coexists with big business; where a star designer might work at the same time with Nike, a tattoo artist, Louis Vuitton, and a skateboard company. It's the ubiquitous style of dress comprising hoodies, sneakers, and T-shirts worn by everyone from rappers to models to book editors. In the beginning, a few brands defined this style; fewer still survived as streetwear went mainstream. They are the OGs, the "heritage brands." The Hundreds is one of those companies, and Bobby Hundreds is at the center of it all.
Bobby Kim, a.k.a. Bobby Hundreds, is the cofounder of The Hundreds, one of the first streetwear brands to go global. The creative force behind the brand, he has emerged as one of streetwear's most prominent faces and voices. But growing up as one of the only Asian American kids in a mostly White and Latino community, a year ahead of his peers, with artistic aspirations, he reminds us that The Hundreds was started by outsiders and that that is truly the story of streetwear culture.
In This Is Not a T-Shirt, Hundreds cements his spot as a champion of an industry he helped create, celebrating the inspirations that birthed The Hundreds--from his Southern Caliornia, punk-DIY-tinged youth to the brand's explosive success. His story is both inspiring memoir and business book--an expert assessment of the history and future of streetwear and the tale of his commitment to a creative vision and to building real community.
Описание: This book has been considered by academicians and scholars of great significance and value to literature. This forms a part of the knowledge base for future generations. We have represented this book in the same form as it was first published. Hence any marks seen are left intentionally to preserve its true nature.
Rather than present development economics by introducing and explaining theories and concepts, this volume introduces the topic through the lens of a business investor exploration. Using the 52 developing countries of Africa as background, the reader is led to explore and analyze their economic environments over a combined period of 15 years. In so doing, various mechanisms, concepts and theories are utilized and they are introduced and explained at every step. This way, the reader becomes acquainted with the intricacies of development economics in a practical manner that involves real-life economic and business scenarios. Not only do they learn and grasp economic concepts and theories, they also learn how these work and when to deploy them. They should come away with a vivid understanding of development economics and developing countries characteristics, all of this experienced in an engaging, vibrant, graphically attractive and user-friendly process.
The book starts out with the conviction and basic premise that economic concepts are too often portrayed as complicated subject matter; its intent is to introduce macroeconomics to the reader and show that economics can indeed be a good friend with interesting stories to tell.
Possibly the first things noticed about the volume are its vivid colors and exciting appearance. That is deliberate: it has been designed to be invigorating and inviting to read, while being at the same time of the highest academic and analytical standards. In this light, of particular consequence are the incisive and pithy commentaries that accompany the analyses outcomes on every page.
Praise for work by Tony Okoromadu:
It is hard to imagine a more colorful and comprehensive reference book. This is a staggeringly detailed compilation. Clearly a massive undertaking.
AACSB The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business USA
A great deal of work and an extraordinary job in assembling this vast amount of interesting material and data. And he presents these in an imaginative and innovative way. The book is reminiscent of the style of The Economist's World in Figures and would sit well in that class.
Michael Hay Professor of Management and Entrepreneurship London Business School
A remarkable job of putting together the background information on Africa. The information is also beautifully and imaginatively displayed. This is a remarkable piece of work.
Martin Wolf Chief Economics Commentator Financial Times London
An indispensable tool. The target audience is foreign investors, government and development agencies. The format is easy-to-use, making the content readily comprehensible to a wider public. Deserves to become a standard reference for many years to come.
Jonathan Story Emeritus Professor of International Political Economy INSEAD France
His novel approach both sets today's statistics in a recognisable context and clearly improves the landscape for decision-making.
Baroness Lynda Chalker Former Cabinet Minister United Kingdom Government
It makes sense of the statistics, pointing out the trends, strengths and weaknesses that lie behind the figures. Reliable factual material, superbly presented and interpreted in a way that makes it immediately understandable. A rare commodity.
David White Former Africa Editor Financial Times London
A unique and impressive compendium. Represents a new and refreshing approach to country analyses.
Joe Nellis Professor of International Management Economics Cranfield University School of Management United Kingdom
