GERDES, William D.

      The basics of foreign exchange markets : a monetary systems approach / William D. Gerdes. - New York : Business Expert Press, 2015

This book is appropriate as a text for advanced business students and as a sourcebook for business professionals. The premise upon which this book is based is that an introduction to foreign exchange markets should commence at the most general level. Consequently, the book is anchored in the context of monetary systems (commodity, fiduciary, and fiat monies). The intent is to give the student of foreign exchange markets a very broad perspective. It allows her to understand how foreign exchange markets function under our current fiat money standard. But, it also analyzes how foreign exchange markets performed under earlier monetary arrangements such as the gold standard. This book will be distinguished from other, similar books in two ways: First, it will offer the student an historical perspective when analyzing activity in these markets by examining foreign exchange market activity with commodity, fiduciary, and fiat monies. This is especially important for understanding the pricing of foreign exchange.

      Immigration outside the law / Hiroshi Motomura. - Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2014

A 1975 state-wide law in Texas made it legal for school districts to bar students from public schools if they were in the country illegally, thus making it extremely difficult or even possible for scores of children to receive an education. The resulting landmark Supreme Court case, Plyler v. Doe (1982), established the constitutional right of children to attend public elementary and secondary schools regardless of legal status and changed how the nation approached the conversation about immigration outside the law. Today, as the United States takes steps towards immigration policy reform, Americans are subjected to polarized debates on what the country should do with its "illegal" or "undocumented" population.
