Featured Resource List

Richard Razgaitis. Valuation and dealmaking of technology-based intellectual property : principles, methods, and tools. J. Wiley, c2009.

KF3145.R39 2009

 

This book—a completely revised and expanded edition of Razgaitis's previous book Valuation and Pricing of Technology-Based Intellectual Property—brings together material designated as "Approaches" into three core technology business processes used for transforming technology into money: opportunity Discovery, Valuation, and Dealmaking, or the acronym D-V-D. In addition, this book introduces, develops, and applies the following six valuation methods: Use of Industry Standards for Valuation, The Rating/Ranking Method, and Tool, Rules of Thumb to Determine Valuation, Discounted Cash Flow Method to Determine Valuation, Advanced Valuation Methods, and Valuation by Auctions.

The use of Monte Carlo as an Advanced Valuation method has also been expanded in this new edition and an accompanying Web site, www.razgaitis.com, provides spreadsheets used in this book as well as a link to a free trial of the Monte Carlo software to allow professionals to run their own simulations.

 

 

 

David Barnhizer & Daniel Barnhizer. Hypocrisy & myth : the hidden order of the rule of law. Vandeplas, 2009.

K3171.B37 2009

 

This book takes the position that the “truth” of the Rule of Law requires a degree of hypocrisy and suspension of disbelief in regard to the ongoing “performance”. This in no way renders the system illegitimate. It does, however, make the Rule of Law an easy target for criticism in both theory and application. The Rule of Law is an arational and irrational system based upon an uncomfortable admixture of reasoned ideals, pre-rational beliefs, evidential insights, and mythic stories. Modern and postmodern attacks on these foundations—attacks often made for egalitarian or ostensibly just purposes—have the power to weaken societal commitments to the Rule of Law and the legitimacy of the overall political community.
