Susanna Smit, suster van die Voortrekkerleier Gert Maritz, het op vroee leeftyd 'n gedwonge huwelik met die veel ouer eerwaarde Erasmus Smit aangegaan. Altyd daarna bly die gemis na haar jeugvriend Willem van Staden die verpersoonliking van wat kon gewees het. 'n Historiese roman wat boei en ontroer. Margaret Bakkes, wat in 2011 haar tagtigste verjaarsdag gevier het, is bekend vir haar tydskrifverhale, kortverhale en liefdesromans. Haar kortverhaalbundel Wat die middag verwoes (1977) was vir etlike jare ín voorgeskrewe werk in skole, vyf van haar romans is oor die radio voorgelees en in 1999 word Susanna die geliefde vir die verhoog verwerk met Joanie Combrink, Susanne Beyers en Johann Nel in die hoofrolle.
This book offers a critical reflection on the operation and effects of labour regulation. It articulates the broad goals and extensive potential for it to contribute to inclusive development, while also considering the limits of some areas of regulation and governance. Drawing on both field studies and innovative theoretical perspectives, the contributors reveal an emerging consensus that labour regulation is neither negative nor positive for economic and social outcomes. By comparing the concerns and methodologies of various disciplines, they argue that balanced regulation is essential. Following analysis of how the global financial crisis has increased labour market segmentation, the book addresses the needs of key groups often at the periphery, including young women, workers in the informal economy, migrants and home-care workers. The book argues that effective and efficient labour market regulation can contribute to achieving key policy goals of the formalization of employment and inclusive labour markets, while also pursuing equitable distribution. An important comparative work, academics and students - particularly those studying law, economics, political science, international relations and development studies - will find this book to be of exceptional value. Practitioners and policy-makers from both developed and developing countries will also benefit from the wide range of perspectives.

Guardian's Best Non-Fiction, 2019 The Tablet's Highlights of 2019 Personality tests. Team-building exercises. Forced Fun. Desktop surveillance. Open-plan offices. Acronyms. Diminishing job security. Hot desking. Pointless perks. Hackathons. If any of the above sound familiar, welcome to the modern economy. In this hilarious, but deadly serious book, bestselling author Dan Lyons looks at how the world of work has slowly morphed from one of unions and steady career progression to a dystopia made of bean bags and unpaid internships. And that's the 'good' jobs... With the same wit that made Disrupted an international bestseller, Lyons shows how the hypocrisy of Silicon Valley has now been exported globally to a job near you. Even low-grade employees are now expected to view their jobs with a cult-like fervour, despite diminishing prospects of promotion. From the gig economy to the new digital oligarchs, Lyons deliciously roasts the new work climate, while asking what can be done to recoup some sanity and dignity for the expanding class of middle-class serfs.
This clear and concise textbook presents EU competition law in political, economic and comparative context. It combines excerpts from key EU rulings with discussions of enforcement policy issues and comparisons with US antitrust cases. Untangling the complex set of factors driving individual outcomes, it is the perfect companion for any student or practitioner in the field. Successive chapters explore the tools used by competition authorities in Europe: to punish cartels that fix prices or divide markets; assess cooperative agreements between rival firms and supplier-customer relationships; to establish a dominant position and find abuses; and review the competitive effects of mergers and acquisitions. The book also explains how authorities determine when business restraints infringe on the principles governing the EU internal market, and when Member States contravene the rules protecting the European competition system including by means of subsidies known as State aids. More than a reference tool, this innovative book provides a rounded account of the various dimensions of EU competition law, of its place at the heart of the EU market integration project and of its relevance for the enforcement of antitrust principles worldwide. Key features: * provides a clear, concise and up-to-date presentation of the law * includes important excerpts from all seminal competition decisions and judgements of the European Commission and the EU Courts * explains the critical nuances of cases by means of contextual notes and questions * integrates law, economics and other policies, providing a holistic sense of competition law and its place in the European system * compares EU competition law with US antitrust law, analysing the root of their differences and enabling the reader to derive comparative insights * supports general and advanced EU and international competition law courses.

With the Chinese government planning a comprehensive and detailed reform of regulatory law, the European experience is likely to contribute significantly. This timely book analyses comparative Chinese and EU regulatory reform from a Law and Economics perspective. With eminent international contributors, Regulatory Reform in China and the EU sets out a reform agenda by addressing financial markets, social and administrative regulation, and environmental protection. The first part of the book discusses the banking sector reform and the stock market regulation concerning institutional investors, insider trading and private enforcement. A second part discusses contract law and considers how EU state aid policy could also influence reform on (local) government in other jurisdictions. Third, environmental pollution and the need for stricter regulation are considered, with a focus on the possibilities of investment in new technology, such as offshore carbon capture and storage, economic growth and the nexus between WTO law and climate change. The fourth and final part of the book includes an essay by Jonathan Klick on the empirical analysis of regulation, with a particular focus on field experiments in China. Academics and postgraduate students of both Economics and Law with a particular interest in regulation will find this book valuable and compelling. Policymakers and practitioners will also benefit from the insights revealed by the collaboration of lawyers and economists.
A smart and concise guide to staying together that draws on scientific findings, expert advice, and years in the marital trenches to explain why marriage is better for your health, your finances, your kids, and your happiness
Like you, probably, Belinda Luscombe would rather have had her eyes put out than read a book about marriage; they all seemed full of advice that was obvious, useless, or bad. Plus they were boring. But after covering the relationship beat for Time magazine for ten years, she realized there was a surprisingly upbeat and little-known story to tell about the benefits of staying together for the long haul. Casting a witty, candid, and probing eye on the latest behavioral science, Luscombe has written a fresh and persuasive report on the state of our unions, how they've changed from the marriages of our parents' era, and what those changes mean for the happiness of this most intimate and important of our relationships.
In Marriageology Luscombe examines the six major fault lines that can fracture contemporary marriages, also known as the F-words: familiarity, fighting, finances, family, fooling around, and finding help. She presents facts, debunks myths, and provides a fascinating mix of research, anecdotes, and wisdom from a wide range of approaches--from how properly dividing up chores can result in a better sex life to the benefits of fighting with your spouse (though not in the car) to whether or not to tell your partner that you lost $70,000. (The last one is from firsthand experience.)
Marriageology offers simple, actionable, maybe even borderline fun techniques and tips to try, whether the relationship in question is about to conk out or just needs a little grease and an oil change. The best news of all is that sticking together is easier than it looks.
