“Policy makers around the world are increasingly worried about developments in some digital markets and in particular digital platforms which use business practices to obtain an advantage vis-áa-vis competitors in vertically related activities (e.g., self-preferencing) or which use their advantages e.g. in data collection and analytics to gain the upper hand over competitors in adjacent markets. Network effects and economies of scale and scope are seen as drivers of market tipping, possibly leading to anentrenched position of the most successful or lucky firm to the detriment of consumers in the long run”– This book is published by Cambridge University Press – now available at amazon.

Unweit des Atlantiks herrscht Stille in dem ländlichen Dorf Grândola, Portugal, geprägt von einem ausgedehnten Pinienwald und einigen vereinzelten kleinen Gebäuden. Dort entsteht die Melides Residenz von Fragmentos als ein einziger Körper mit einem Flachdach, das an einer Stelle ausgehöhlt wird, um einen zentralen Hof zu bilden, um den sich das Haus entwickelt. Beim Herauszoomen erscheint der Übergang zwischen dem Bau und der Landschaft harmonisch und privilegiert Ruhe und Natur in dieser portugiesischen Stadt.

The Lotus Elite was a turning point for Lotus. First produced at the end of the 1950s, it marked Lotus’ transition from a maker of small racing cars, which had limited utility on the road, to the producer of a highly sophisticated road and race car. In the Elite, Lotus exploited its knowledge of new technology and racing pedigree to produce a car which, with its glass fibre monocoque and Coventry Climax engine, had the potential to be a world beater.

This book gives an insight into the reasons the car was produced and its importance in Lotus’ history, especially in the production of lightweight innovative cars. Through interviews with Elite owners, first hand accounts provide a good overview of owning one of these iconic cars, covering its foibles and quirks as well as its exemplary roadholding, handling and performance. Illustrated with many colour photographs, along with period advertising material, the book provides a valuable insight into owning, running and racing these iconic cars. This book is published by ‎Veloce Publishing Ltd – now available at amazon.
