A Financial Guide For Small Business

RRP \$15.99

RRP \$13.99

How many times have you heard or read that you must write a Business Plan for your new business? This is a myth, because a formal Business Plan-as discussed in all forms of the media-is rarely required of any small business.There is a vast difference between business planning and writing a Business Plan, and Foster's book not only explains that difference, but shows the reader why ongoing planning is necessary, and how to best approach the entire planning process.With this book you will be able to:

• Understand the vital importance of business planning.
• Learn why you should NOT write a "Business Plan".
• Demystify how best to share your planning.
• Learn about the best approach to investors.
• Gain an understanding of "planning" vs. a "Business Plan."
All of this is from the entrepreneur's point of view-not from an investor's, business guru's, or academic's lofty views. This book is one of Foster's Small Business Primer Series, where a "Primer" is defined as any book of elementary principles.

Identification Of Dynamical Systems With Small Noise

RRP \$119.00

Small noise is a good noise. In this work, we are interested in the problems of estimation theory concerned with observations of the diffusion-type process Xo = Xo, 0 ~ t ~ T, (0. 1) where W is a standard Wiener process and St(') is some nonanticipative smooth t function. By the observations X = {X , 0 ~ t ~ T} of this process, we will solve some t of the problems of identification, both parametric and nonparametric. If the trend S(-) is known up to the value of some finite-dimensional parameter St(X) = St((}, X), where (} E e c Rd , then we have a parametric case. The nonparametric problems arise if we know only the degree of smoothness of the function St(X), 0 ~ t ~ T with respect to time t. It is supposed that the diffusion coefficient c is always known. In the parametric case, we describe the asymptotical properties of maximum likelihood (MLE), Bayes (BE) and minimum distance (MDE) estimators as c --+ 0 and in the nonparametric situation, we investigate some kernel-type estimators of unknown functions (say, StO,O ~ t ~ T). The asymptotic in such problems of estimation for this scheme of observations was usually considered as T --+ 00 , because this limit is a direct analog to the traditional limit (n --+ 00) in the classical mathematical statistics of i. i. d. observations. The limit c --+ 0 in (0. 1) is interesting for the following reasons.

Make Investment Scaling-up Work In Benin

RRP \$15.99

This paper conducts a systematic growth and fiscal analysis to determine: (1) the growth potential of Benin's ambitious scaling-up of investment, and (2) how the government can generate the necessary fiscal space needed to increase investment without jeopardizing Benin's solid macroeconomic performance.

Rendezvous At A Small Hotel

RRP \$39.99

Rendezvous at a Small Hotel is the fifth volume in the exciting series about the Hotel Marcel in the city of Paris near The Eiffel Tower. Elizabeth, an American widow in her 60s, returns to the small hotel, as she does yearly. For her, it is a visit with a purpose--to reconnect with her artist lover, Brit, with whom she has lost contact. Her search leads her to the Normandy beaches and the American cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer. In the wake of her pursuit, a number of adventures occur, involving a vindictive Qatari sheikh, a secret wedding, aiding and abetting the planting of illegal Italian grape seedlings at the chateau of her American friend, La Marquise de Chevigny, and a final rendezvous at the Hotel Marcel.

The City of Light is Elizabeth's passion to which she is drawn every few months. In the sixth volume, entitled Intrigue at a Small Hotel, Elizabeth is troubled by a malicious woman from the past who seeks to ruin her life. Intrigue will be available in early 2016."
