CARRET, Philip L.
The art of speculation.
Revised edition, first written in 1924 for Barron’s National Financial Weekly. Written four years prior to Benjamin Graham’s Security Analysis, Carret advocated a similar approach to investing. He insisted that an ‘investor must speculate’, promoting a long term value-based investment strategy focused on buying undervalued shares in well-run companies on solid financial footing. Carret founded one of the first Mutual Funds in the United States, the company that became Pioneer Investments, and is additionally famous for being one of Warren Buffett’s role models.
Manuale della contribuzione fondiaria compilato per disposizione di S. E. il ministro segretario di stato delle finanze. Sola edizione autentica [– Parte seconda. Percezione della contribuzione fondiaria].
First edition. In two parts, the first of which sets out the basis of property taxation, while the second treats the collection and transmission of sums owing, this manual prints the legislation in force in the nearer Neapolitan part (always described as ‘This side of the Lighthouse’, whereas Sicily itself and parts of the Southern mainland were ‘The other side of the Lighthouse’) of the Kingdom of Naples and the Two Sicilies as of 1835.
In the law of 8 August 1806, a large number of old taxes, many with a restricted local ambit, were abolished in favour of a new contribuzione fondiaria, a property tax based on net annual revenue from the property. Subsequent regulation, in the form of the Royal Decree of 10 June 1817, letters, and other instruments, amplified the extent and conditions of imposition of this new tax. The manual prints this material, pp. 5–256, where it is followed by a 60-page alphabetical index organized under topic and referring the reader to relevant passages of the regulations. The second part of the manual, dealing with the mechanics of collection, with the various agencies and officials involved and with the treatment of late payment etc., is organized on the same basis. The regulations are printed pp. 1–417, and from pp. 419 to 570 there follows an index of topics; pp. 571–84 give new regulations introduced while the manual was at the printers; p. 585 gives errata. At the end of the second part come examples of 35 different official forms to be used in connection with the contribuzione fondiaria. Each form has printed on it the page of the manual which refers to it.
