Franchising is an increasingly important global business model, but how well protected are franchisees –the people who operate and make any franchise system really work? In this book, the author explores the many different roles that franchisees play in modern business, and their importance to the success of every franchise arrangement. As well as providing a comprehensive overview and analysis of the legal context of modern franchising relationships, and the different measures taken to deal with franchisee concerns, the author examines the “weak links” in contemporary franchising – the areas where franchisees are rarely appropriately protected. Despite all the rhetoric, franchisees remain awkwardly accommodated within the law, and they are in need of attention through improved consumer protection, corporate governance, and business insolvency/bankruptcy laws. Franchisees As Consumers examines why franchisees remain more vulnerable under the law than employees and suppliers, and what can be done about it.

Since the first edition of the Encyclopedia of White Collar and Corporate Crime was produced in 2004, the number and severity of these crimes have risen to the level of calamity, so much so that many experts attribute the near-Depression of 2008 to white-collar malfeasance, namely crimes of greed and excess by bankers and financial institutions. Whether the perpetrators were prosecuted or not, white-collar and corporate crime came near to collapsing the U.S. economy. In the 7 years since the first edition was produced we have also seen the largest Ponzi scheme in history (Maddoff), an ecological disaster caused by British Petroleum and its subcontractors (Gulf Oil Spill), and U.S. Defense Department contractors operating like vigilantes in Iraq (Blackwater). White-collar criminals have been busy, and the Second Edition of this encyclopedia captures what has been going on in the news and behind the scenes with new articles and updates to past articles.

Dunk'd is the true story of Irwin Barkan's encounter with the dark side of franchising. He is a serial entrepreneur who buys five franchises from Dunkin' Donuts - the consumer brand of his dreams - only to find out that the company spies on its franchisees, even their personal lives, and has sued hundreds of them in a scheme to seize their stores. When Dunkin' Donuts targets him, he fights back, and sets out to find out what is really going on behind the brown and orange logo. Dunk'd takes the reader through Barkan's experience with the modern day realities of franchising, starting with the sales process and explaining how the small business owners who operate franchises function within the confines of this distribution system that is controlled by global conglomerates and private equity firms. The book examines how the franchising business, built around legal principles from the 19th Century, enables franchisors to treat their franchisees with impunity. Dunkin' Donuts was once a paragon of franchising. Its founder, Bill Rosenberg, espoused a system where the franchisees were considered partners and built the company into an indelible brand. But its new owners have leveraged the franchise agreement, the most one-sided legal agreement used in business today, and used it to terrorize its franchisees, the small business owners who provide the capital and hard work that make the system work. Dunk'd is a cautionary tale that will entertain and inform readers as Barkan responds to a business environment that he has never encountered before: where a franchisor exploits its legal and economic dominance to batter its franchisees into submission. The underbelly of the franchise system and its deleterious effects on franchisees are exposed in Dunk'd; along with its built-in opportunities for larceny: by the franchisor, its corporate managers and the franchising lawyers assigned to keeping the rotten edifice intact. It's a story Barkan could not fully comprehend while it was occurring. But once he put the pieces together that his story was more representative of the franchising and small business experience than the public could ever begin to imagine and is the reason he has written this book. This is a story all too familiar with franchisees, but one that will horrify the rest of America.

Legendary investment gurus Warren Buffett and Ed Thorp represent different ends of the investing spectrum: one a value investor, the other a quant. While Buffett and Thorp have conflicting philosophical approaches, they agree that the market is beatable. In Quantitative Value, Wesley Gray and Tobias Carlisle take the best aspects from the disciplines of value investing and quantitative investing and apply them to a completely unique and winning approach to stock selection. As the authors explain, the quantitative value strategy offers a superior way to invest: capturing the benefits of a value investing philosophy without the behavioral errors associated with "stock picking." To demystify their innovative approach, Gray and Carlisle outline the framework for quantitative value investing, including the four key elements of the investment process: How to avoid stocks that can cause a permanent loss of capital: Learn how to uncover financial statement manipulation, fraud, and financial distress How to find stocks with the highest quality: Discover how to find strong economic franchises and robust financial strength. Gray and Carlisle look at long-term returns on capital and assets, free cash flow, and a variety of metrics related to margins and general financial strength The secret to finding deeply undervalued stocks: Does the price-to-earnings ratio find undervalued stocks better than free cash flow? Gray and Carlisle examine the historical data on over 50 valuation ratios, including some unusual metrics, rare multi-year averages, and uncommon combinations The five signals sent by smart money: The book uncovers the signals sent by insiders, short sellers, shareholder activists, and institutional investment managers After detailing the quantitative value investment process, Gray and Carlisle conduct a historical test of the resulting quantitative value model. Their conclusions are surprising and counterintuitive. This reliable resource includes a companion website that offers a monthly-updated screening tool to find stocks using the model outlined in the book, an updated back-testing tool, and a blog about recent developments in quantitative value investing. For any investor who wants to make the most of their time in today's complex marketplace, they should look no further than Quantitative Value.
