As inventive as Agatha Christie, as hilarious as P.G. Wodehouse - discover the delightful detective stories of Edmund Crispin. Crime fiction at its quirkiest and best. Richard Cadogan, poet and would-be bon vivant, arrives for what he thinks will be a relaxing holiday in the city of dreaming spires. Late one night, however, he discovers the dead body of an elderly woman lying in a toyshop and is coshed on the head. When he comes to, he finds that the toyshop has disappeared and been replaced with a grocery store. The police are understandably skeptical of this tale but Richard's former schoolmate, Gervase Fen (Oxford professor and amateur detective), knows that truth is stranger than fiction (in fiction, at least). Soon the intrepid duo are careening around town in hot pursuit of clues but just when they think they understand what has happened, the disappearing-toyshop mystery takes a sharp turn…Erudite, eccentric and entirely delightful – Before Morse, Oxford's murders were solved by Gervase Fen, the most unpredictable detective in classic crime fiction.

The purpose of this book is to provide a critique of the standard neoclassical macroeconomic model. This model is the basis of certain "parables" which play a major role in policy-making and in the way that the layman conceives of economic policy and management. Two of the most important parables are, firstly, "more employment is stimulated by lower real wages" and secondly, "inflation is the result of an increase in the money supply". The author attempts to demonstrate that both of these generally accepted parables are derived from a highly abstract model whose internal logic is extremely problematical. Further, the logical difficulties arise within a model whose assumptions make it at best a very special case. It is demonstrated that these generally-accepted conclusions are not only of questionable empirical relevance, but based upon questionable logic.
In clear, easy-to-grasp language, the author covers many of the topics that you will need to know in order to launch and run a successful business venture.
