The one person I talked to that was surprisingly aware of the difference between the Democrats and the Republicans was a twenty something black B-Boy whom I nicknamed Hip Hop.â€ He was, by far, the most interesting character I encountered on this ride. I met more interesting people at my destinations, but not on the bus. Hip hop sat next to me on the way back to the Big Apple. He got on the bus in the small Georgiatown of Hinesvilleand was decked out in classic B-Boy gear that looked recently purchased. There are photos of a corner of WTC7 having 20 missing floors with smoke bellowing out of them. However, I find it odd that the building collapsed as if it was Pruitt-Igoe being demolished. There’s also conclusive evidence of thermite chips within dust carried by smoke and wind throughout New York on the day of the attack. Also, you forgot to mention how federal agents kept people within the South Tower after the initial impact of the first plane, and how Silverstein was to have breakfast at Windows On The World that morning, but showed up late to work and phoned his daughter to skip out aswell.

This chapter provides a selective survey of the legal rules and policies governing international trade in goods. The sources of law in this area are numerous. At the global level, the World Trade Organization (WTO) and its constituent treaties supply a legal framework governing the relationship among its 162 member nations (as of January 2016). Additional international rules are to be found in the hundreds of bilateral and multilateral regional trade agreementsaâ€ (RTAs) that have proliferated in recent years, such as the European Union, NAFTA, and MERCOSUR.b Finally, trading nations have numerous domestic laws governing international trade. In the United States, for example, tariffs are applied in accordance with the US Tariff Schedules, along with antidumping duties, countervailing duties, safeguard measures, and so on. Exports are regulated for national security and other purposes. The rationale behind the loser pays rule is to provide an incentive for litigants not to launch frivolous cases, which waste legal resources and empty the wallets of defendants. The litigation explosion in the U.S. in recent decades has motivated a great deal of interest in adopting the loser pays rule in this country. The major difficulty with the loser pays rule is that, although it probably deters frivolous suits, it may deter some suits with merit as well. It seems especially harsh to punish people for launching suits in areas of law where the precedents are unclear or nonexistent, so that it’s reasonable to think either side may win. But frivolous lawsuits also create a heavy burden, so the debate over the loser pays rule turns on the magnitude of this burden relative to the danger of deterring suits that may have merit. From a long-term historical perspective, five main lessons can be drawn from the forty-five-year experience of socialism in Yugoslavia and the nearly thirty-year experience of capitalism in Yugoslavia’s successor states.
