Dragons are fearsome, fascinating creatures and, as everyone knows, they are very rare indeed. Very few people have actually seen a real living dragon - as the chance of seeing one is extremely remote. One thing is for certain, as fascinating as dragons might be, no one wants one living on their estate. But there is one living on Jayden Cru's estate... and no one is happy! The shopkeepers aren't happy; the dragon is frightening customers away. Parents aren't happy; the dragon could hurt their children. The children aren't happy; the dragon is giving them nightmares. There's only one solution: the dragon has to go. So how do you get a dragon to leave? Especially as this dragon seems to have made himself at home. Jayden and his best friend Hodgepodge team up to make the dragon return home - wherever home might be. But the dragon isn't having any of it. This dragon is here to stay. Will Jayden and Hodgepodge be able to come up with a winning plan? Or will they be stuck with the dragon forever?
In March 1999, New York University Salomon Center in assocIatIOn with the Department of Finance at NYU Stern held a one-day conference on the impact of real estate cycles on the real estate industry both from a domestic as well as an international perspective. The conference featured the leading research on this topic in the United States, Europe and Asia. Currendy, the real estate industry is at a critical point. New development projects around the world are being put on hold given recent developments in the international capital markets. The industry is hard hit by the decline in real estate investment trust (REIT) share prices and a shrinkÂ ing pool of capital for real estate ventures. This has unfortunately coincided with serious financial problems of very large hedge funds and other institutional investors in the market for commercial mortgage backed securities. There is need for new insights into the implications of U. S. and global real estate cycles on real estate secuÂ rities including REITs and mortgage-backed securities as well as direct real estate investment. This global orientation is important given the high mobility of capital into the real estate, the increasing integration of real estate markets, and the proposed expanÂ sion of real estate investment trusts (REIT) into international real estate. The process of globalization has resulted in increased competition between cities for the attracÂ tion of investment.
Real Estate Investment: A Strategic Approach provides a unique introduction to both the theory and practice of real estate investing, and examines the international real estate investment industry as it reacts to the global financial crisis.

Empirical research shows that two thirds some claim even four fifths of all acquisitions fail. Bad acquisitions can spell disaster for a company, but if successful, they can lead to healthy growth, enhanced competitiveness and a world market position. Despite the vast amount of academic and practical research on M&A, there are still no adequate theories to explain this continued trend of failure. In fact, although success factors have been broadly researched and are well known, most work still concentrates on them without concomitantly touching upon the necessary governance structure which enables their effective deployment. This is crucial. In order to determine what constitutes an effective board and governance structure, extensive qualitative fieldwork was carried out through discussions with some of the most renowned international CEOs and Chairmen. From this, two in-depth analyses of prominent cases are made, one of extraordinary success and the other of integral failure. The business leaders' management approaches are scrutinised, revealing significant differences between what worked and what did not, and recommendations are derived for improved corporate governance. The author's conclusions sharply illustrate the limits and challenge the inadequacies of current business practice, revealing gaps between mainstream theory and the reality of the boardroom.Due to his innovative approach, the study is praised by practitioners for itsadditions to strategic management understanding and its provision of effective tools for boards and managers."
