Crude Oil and the Successful Intermediary the Export and Import of Petroleum Based Products by Intermediaries

Author: Davide Giovanni Papa
Publisher: Lund Humphries Publishers
ISBN: 147246818X
Release Date: 2015-10-28
Genre:

With all of the news surrounding climate change and the need to reduce emissions, renewable energy is gaining a stronghold and there is a sharp focus on the reporting of energy usage and carbon emissions. As such, it seems that the petroleum industry is heading for a steep decline. The reality is, however, that renewable energy is not cheap nor is it suitable for heavy industry use; two factors which drive a viable economy. As more people take up alternative and renewable types of energy sources, as obtained from the sun or wind, it the price of localised coal and fuel-powered electricity generation will increase, in direct correlation with the decreased use of so-called 'dirty energy'. Yet, Davide Papa contends that there is no other practical form of energy that could match the energy output of crude oil pound per pound. The decline in the trading of crude oil and associated fuels is not upon us in the near or distant future, if ever and the marketplace is ripe for informed intermediaries to source and sell petroleum based products for a long time yet. Davide sets out a basic, uniform standard of practice and explains, in a clear and straightforward language, the rules and laws that must be adhered to when conducting business in the complex export/import arena, thus guiding intermediaries, brokers, agents, buyers and sellers who are attempting to deal in commodities, including petroleum based products, to success. The insight Davide provides has cross-industry relevance and additionally will appeal to a host of professional entities such as intermediaries, lawyers, scientists, engineers, accountants, corporate and home based traders.

Global Production

Author: Pol Antràs
Publisher: Princeton University Press
ISBN: 9781400873746
Release Date: 2015-12-22
Genre: Business & Economics

Global Production is the first book to provide a fully comprehensive overview of the complicated issues facing multinational companies and their global sourcing strategies. Few international trade transactions today are based on the exchange of finished goods; rather, the majority of transactions are dominated by sales of individual components and intermediary services. Many firms organize global production around offshoring parts, components, and services to producers in distant countries, and contracts are drawn up specific to the parties and distinct legal systems involved. Pol Antràs examines the contractual frictions that arise in the international system of production and how these frictions influence the world economy. Antràs discusses the inevitable complications that develop in contract negotiation and execution. He provides a unified framework that sheds light on the factors helping global firms determine production locations and other organizational choices. Antràs also implements a series of systematic empirical tests, based on recent data from the U.S. Customs and Census Offices, which demonstrate the relevance of contractual factors in global production decisions. Using an integrated approach, Global Production is an excellent resource for researchers, graduate students, and advanced undergraduates interested in the inner workings of international economics and trade.

European Intermediary Liability in Copyright

Author: Christina Angelopoulos
Publisher: Aspen Publishers
ISBN: 9041168354
Release Date: 2016-11-18
Genre: Law

Provides a clarification on the substantive rules of European intermediary accessory liability in copyright and formulates harmonised European norms to govern this complicated topic. In step with the rapid progress to the centre of modern social, political, and economic life, the internet has proven a convenient vehicle for the commission of unprecedented levels of copyright infringement. Given the formidable practical obstacles to the successful pursuit of actual perpetrators, it has become common for intermediaries providers of internet-related infrastructure and services to face liability as accessories. Despite advances in policy at the European level, the law in this area remains far from consistently applicable. This is the first book to take a law-based approach towards exploring a possible introduction of a substantive European intermediary liability.

What Makes Exports Boom

Author: Mark J. Roberts
Publisher: World Bank Publications
ISBN: 0821336673
Release Date: 1997-01-01
Genre: Business & Economics

"This report sheds new light on what makes exports grow. The effects of macroeconomic conditions and policy variables on manufacturing exports have been notoriously unpredictable in the research literature. The research summarized here suggests that that unpredictability can be traced largely to neglected microeconomic characteristics of manufacturing sectors. In particular, the export response to a given stimulus is shaped by the cross-firm dispersion in unit production costs, the extent of product differentiation, and, critically, the prevalence of previous exporting experience. This research is derived from a recently completed World Bank project examining the microeconomic foundations of industrial export booms in Colombia, Mexico, and Morocco. For each country, plants were followed through time, and their decisions to begin exporting, cease exporting, or adjust their export volumes were detailed. By focusing on microeconomic characteristics, the authors highlight some features of export supply response not previously quantified. First, export booms in Colombia, Morocco, and to a lesser extent Mexico would have been more modest if large numbers of firms had not decided to break into foreign markets. Second, new exporters face significant start-up costs as they develop marketing channels, adapt products and packaging to foreign tastes, and learn bureaucratic procedures. They become exporters only when the expected profits from foreign sales are large enough to cover these costs, and are unlikely to respond to export incentives viewed as transitory." -- Website.

Crafting Tradition

Author: Michael Chibnik
Publisher: University of Texas Press
ISBN: 9780292782662
Release Date: 2010-01-01
Genre: Art

Since the mid-1980s, whimsical, brightly colored wood carvings from the Mexican state of Oaxaca have found their way into gift shops and private homes across the United States and Europe, as Western consumers seek to connect with the authenticity and tradition represented by indigenous folk arts. Ironically, however, the Oaxacan wood carvings are not a traditional folk art. Invented in the mid-twentieth century by non-Indian Mexican artisans for the tourist market, their appeal flows as much from intercultural miscommunication as from their intrinsic artistic merit. In this beautifully illustrated book, Michael Chibnik offers the first in-depth look at the international trade in Oaxacan wood carvings, including their history, production, marketing, and cultural representations. Drawing on interviews he conducted in the carving communities and among wholesalers, retailers, and consumers, he follows the entire production and consumption cycle, from the harvesting of copal wood to the final purchase of the finished piece. Along the way, he describes how and why this "invented tradition" has been promoted as a "Zapotec Indian" craft and explores its similarities with other local crafts with longer histories. He also fully discusses the effects on local communities of participating in the global market, concluding that the trade in Oaxacan wood carvings is an almost paradigmatic case study of globalization.
