The Draft Common Frame of Reference (DCFR) is the result of more than 25 years of academic research on European private law. The final academic version of the DCFR was published in October 2009, and currently the European Commission is undertaking a selection process in order to determine which parts of the DCFR will be included in a 'political' CFR. Against this background, this book presents and critically analyzes the DCFR and situates it in relation to current Belgian law. (Series: Ius Commune Europaeum - Vol. 99)

The absence of a unitary doctrine framework helped to develop differences, relevant in some cases, in the discipline of the aforementioned contracts in the main European Union countries. Therefore the need to collect in this e book the discipline applicable in some of the main European Union countries: Italy, Austria, Germany, Belgium, Holland, Spain and the United Kingdom. In addition to the general discipline and the definitions of the two contracts in the different countries, the analysis is focused on the duration and termination of relationships, with particular reference to the issues of termination indemnity, termination clause, notice period, stock and non-competition obligations during and after the termination of contracts. All in order to provide for lawyers and Companies an easy consultation instrument in order to choose the best distribution contract to be adopted and to manage any phase, even of litigation, related to termination.

Written for the beginning student as well as the experienced scholar, this introductory analysis of the origin and early development or the English common law provides and excellent grounding for the early study of legal history. Between 1154, when Henry II became king, and 1307, when Edward I died, the common law underwent spectacular growth. The author begins with a discussion of the relationship between the early rules of common law and the social order they serve during this period and concludes with an extended commentary on the durability and continued growth of the common law in modern times.

What Have We Learned?
Author: George A. Akerlof, Olivier Blanchard, David Romer, Joseph E. Stiglitz
Publisher: MIT Press
Since 2008, economic policymakers and researchers have occupied a brave new economic world. Previous consensuses have been upended, former assumptions have been cast into doubt, and new approaches have yet to stand the test of time. Policymakers have been forced to improvise and researchers to rethink basic theory. George Akerlof, Nobel Laureate and one of this volume's editors, compares the crisis to a cat stuck in a tree, afraid to move. In April 2013, the International Monetary Fund brought together leading economists and economic policymakers to discuss the slowly emerging contours of the macroeconomic future. This book offers their combined insights.The editors and contributors -- who include the Nobel Laureate and bestselling author Joseph Stiglitz, Federal Reserve Vice Chair Janet Yellen, and the former Governor of the Bank of Israel Stanley Fischer -- consider the lessons learned from the crisis and its aftermath. They discuss, among other things, post-crisis questions about the traditional policy focus on inflation; macroprudential tools (which focus on the stability of the entire financial system rather than of individual firms) and their effectiveness; fiscal stimulus, public debt, and fiscal consolidation; and exchange rate arrangements.
