ALDCROFT, ROSS E. CATTERALL & DEREK H.
Exchange Rates Regimes and Economic Policy in the Twentieth Century.
Ashgate Publishing Limited, UK, 2004. First Edition, Hardcover. Fine Condition. 9781840142648 256 pages. Available Now. Book Description: The themes of this study are the exchange rate regimes chosen by policy makers in the twentieth century, the means used to maintain these regimes, and the impact of these decisions on individual national economies and the world economy in general. The book draws heavily on new research showing the lessons and the legacy left for policy makers by the gold standard and the attempt at its resurrection in the 1920s. In examining issues such as the gold exchange standard, the gold bullion standard, the experience of floating exchange rates, the Bretton Woods arrangements, the EMS and the ERM, and the Currency Board approach, there is a conscious attempt to draw out the relevance of history for policy makers now. : About the Author: Ross E.

O'CARROLL-KELLY, ROSS
NAMA Mia!
Penguin, UK, 2011. First Edition, Paperback. Very Good Condition. 9781844882267 416 pages. Available Now. Book Description: It was no country for young men. Or women ...: Unemployment, emigration and do-it-yourself hair colour kits were once again a fact of life. Taxes were on the up, the IMF were on the way and there was a cash for gold outlet in Foxrock Village.: But the signs for recovery were good - for me, at least. I was the chief executive of one of the few businesses turning a profit in this town, a shredding company helping to dispose of the Celtic Tiger's dirty little secrets. And I was getting plenty of love action - as the boy-toy of an attractive sixty-year-old woman who was totally rolling in it. I never imagined myself ending up as a gigolo. But, as the saying goes, where there's a will, there's a way-hey-hey!: With presents galore, sex on demand and a hot meal on the table every night, life was storting to look up again. All I had to do to aovid focking it up was to keep my chinos buttoned. And, well, you can probably guess how that went. : Review: Ross's misadventures and on-the-nose observations never fail to provoke a laugh-out-loud reaction ... bursting at the seams with spot-on parody (Irish Times ): Will leave you with pains in your cheeks from laughing (RTÉ Guide on The Oh My God Delusion ): Side-achingly funny (Sunday Independent ): Ross at his best: razor sharp, magnificently plotted and an utter joy to read (Irish Mail on Sunday on The Oh My God Delusion ): While the writing is as sharp and LOL funny as ever, Ross's complicated relationships ... are movingly explored. The closing pages had this reviewer in tears - and, for once, they weren't of helpless laughter (Hot Press on The Oh My God Delusion ) : About the Author: Keeping up with the Kalashnikovs is the fourteenth novel in Paul Howard's 'Ross O'Carroll-Kelly' series. Ross books - annual No 1 bestsellers - have sold over half a million copies, are annually nominated for the Popular Fiction prize at the Irish Book Awards - where they have won the prize an unprecedented three times - and are also critically acclaimed as satirical masterpieces. Titles include The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nightdress, Should have Got off at Sydney Parade, This Champagne Mojito is the Last Thing I Own, Rhino What You Did Last Summer, NAMA Mia!, The Oh My God Delusion (chosen as Ireland's favourite book in Eason's 2011 125th birthday poll), The Shelbourne Ultimatum and Downturn Abbey.
