"Mediaspree" is the name of one of the largest property investment projects in Berlin. It aims to establish telecommunication and media companies along a section of the banks of the river Spree as well as to implement an urban renewal of the surrounding area. Currently many of the present estates are unused, temporarily-occupied or just simply squatted. Many of those buildings are to be converted into office buildings, lofts, hotels, and other new yuppy structures. On one of my walks through the city I witnessed a protest of squatters and some of the Die Linke, protesting against the commercial redevelopment of this area. It looked all ruhig und friedlich. So, I thought of doing a walk through shooting. Taking shots from within the group. However, the Police was just in the process of closing all access to the protest. Therefore I decided to take overview photos from the metro station "Schlesisches Tor", which is situated above street level. Although, I would have liked to be closer, I'm rather content with this shot, showing the number of protesters and some - or actually many out of frame - Zuschauer und Umstehende. As you perhaps have noticed I made this shot during the Summertime. My last photo of a homeless person made me remember I still had this "in waiting". So... Comments are welcome!
Ecosystem Restoration Return on Investment
New research shows that investments in ecosystem restoration projects offer substantial returns. (Costs are based on an analysis of appropriate case studies; benefits have been calculated using benefit transfer approach. The time horizon for the benefit calculation is 40 years. All estimates are based on ongoing analysis for The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (TEEB). As the TEEB database value-analysis is still under development, this table is for illustrative purposes only. Source: Sukhdev, P et al. September 2009.

analysis of investment projects
Written by authors of established texts in this area, this book is a companion volume to the classic The Capital Budgeting Decision. Exploring this key topic in corporate finance the authors examine the complexities of capital budgeting as well as the opportunities to improve the decision process where risk and time are important elements.
Containing ‘Global Aspects’ sections that cover cross-border decision-making, this book also emphasizes the application of capital budgeting techniques to a variety of issues, including the hugely significant ‘buy versus lease’ decision that cost corporations billions each year.
It gives in-depth coverage to:
real options - the value of a project must take into consideration the flexibility that it provides management, acknowledging the option of making decisions in the future when more information is available
decomposing cash flows - a project consists of many series of cash flows and each series deserves its own specific risk-adjusted discount rate. Decomposing the cash flows of an investment highlights the fact that while managers are generally aware that divisions and projects have different risks, too often they neglect the fact that the cash flow components may also have different risks, with severe consequences on the quality of the decision-making.
Designed to assist those making business decisions at all levels, this volume is essential reading for all those working in or studying capital budgeting.
