The Complete Borrowers by Mary Norton Summary

A complete collection of the classic Borrowers stories by Mary Norton. The Borrowers- The Borrowers own nothing at all; they live in the secret places of quiet old houses - behind the mantelpiece, inside the harpsichord, under the kitchen clock. Everything they have is borrowed from the 'human beans', who don't even know they exist. Arrietty's father, Pod, is an expert Borrower - he can scale curtains using a hatpin and bring back a doll's teacup without breaking it. Girls aren't supposed to go borrowing but as Arrietty is an only child her father breaks the rule. But then Arrietty makes friends with a boy - a 'human bean' - and from that moment danger is never far away for, above all else, they must avoid the great disaster of 'being seen'. The Borrowers Afield- The Pod family escape to the fields where their cousins live, but it's a long and dangerous journey. At last they find a new home and adapt to country life. The Borrowers Afloat- Homeless again, Arrietty looks forward to a life away from the dark country cottage, to one full of sunshine. The Borrowers Aloft- The family are now living in the model village of Little Fordham - a complete village tailored to their size. All they have to do is avoid being seen by the visitors, but one night the owner of a rival village comes with a cardboard box ready to catch them . . . The Borrowers Avenged- Pod, Homily and Arrietty have managed to escape with the help of Spiller. They move into the old rectory where they live happily until the Potters come looking for them. After a horrifying encounter in the church, the Potters get their just desserts and the Borrowers can live peacefully once and for all. Poor Stainless- Young Stainless, a Borrower boy, goes missing on a mission to borrow some parsley and an enormous search ensues. Mary Norton was born in 1903 and brought up in a house in Bedfordshire, which was to become the setting for The Borrowers.First published in 1952, The Borrowerswas an imediate success, winning the Library Association's Carnegie Medal. There followed four more Borrowers books- The Borrowers Afield (1955), The Borrowers Afloat (1959), The Borrowers Aloft (1961) and The Borrowers Avenged(1982). Poor Stainlesswas the last Borrowers story Mary Norton wrote. She died in 1992.

Pratiques et techniques bancaires by Monsieur Yassine Boudghene,Eric De Keuleneer Summary

Les techniques bancaires de base ne sont pas complexes, mais utilisent un langage bien spécifique. Cet ouvrage explique de façon claire et illustrée les principales activités bancaires, les services qu’elles offrent à l’économie et leur gestion au quotidien. D’où vient la Banque et à quoi sert-elle? C’est par ces questions que les auteurs introduisent le lecteur dans ce livre qui permet de trouver des informations très complètes sur les activités bancaires, tant de banque « classique » que d’ « Investment Banking ». Les lecteurs pourront ainsi : • Comprendre ce que les banques détiennent à leur actif et les différentes formes de crédit bancaire communément octroyées aux particuliers et aux entreprises ; • Analyser les différentes sources de financement des banques ; • Discerner les leviers de la rentabilité d’une banque et les modes de tarification des crédits ; • Identifier les types de risque (crédit, liquidité, taux, marché, opérationnel) auxquels sont exposées les banques et comprendre comment elles les gèrent ; • Comprendre le rôle des banques dans la gestion d’actifs, les activités de marché et de conseil ; • Diagnostiquer la qualité d’une banque, du point de vue de sa rentabilité, de sa solvabilité, de sa liquidité et de la qualité de ses actifs. L’ouvrage combine explications théoriques et illustrations pratiques, réelles ou inspirées de la réalité. Loin d’être « encore » un livre sur la crise bancaire, il permet plutôt de s’imprégner de ce qui constitue les rouages éternels et les adjonctions plus récentes au noble métier de banquier, noble lorsqu’il reste fidèle à des principes qui ont fait sa grandeur. Les professionnels du secteur bancaire trouveront dans cet ouvrage un outil précieux à leur pratique. Il intéressera par ailleurs tous les avocats spécialisés en droit bancaire, en droit des sociétés et en droit financier, les auditeurs, les régulateurs bancaires, les cadres en charge de la gestion financière ou de la trésorerie des sociétés, ainsi que les étudiants en économie et en gestion.

Show Me the Money: Access to Finance for Small Borrowers in Canada by Vladimir Klyuev Summary

This paper examines access to business finance by Canadian small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and to housing finance by Canadian households (particularly non-prime borrowers) against the background of a fairly concentrated and protected banking industry. It finds access broadly adequate for the former group. However, given the dominance of the large banks and their fairly low risk tolerance, financing of riskier projects is a challenge. Problems with venture capital, plausibly related to the prevalence of tax-advantaged labor-sponsored funds, exacerbate the situation for the most innovative SMEs. The paper also finds the market for housing finance to be highly advanced and sophisticated. However, non-prime mortgage financing is in its infancy in Canada, and further development of that sector (while avoiding the excesses that beset the U.S. market in the last few years) would be beneficial. More broadly, despite recent innovations, options available to Canadians for financing house purchases are still somewhat limited, with scarce availability of mortgage maturities beyond five years particularly surprising. Further advances in securitization could help progress in both of these areas.
