This book is a comparative law study exploring the piercing of the corporate veil in Latin America within the context of the Anglo-American method. The piercing of the corporate veil is a remedy applied, in exceptional circumstances, to prevent and punish an inappropriate use of the corporate personality. The application of this remedy and the issues it involves has been widely researched in Anglo-American jurisdictions and, until recently, little attention has been given to this subject in Latin America. This region has been through internal political conflicts that undermined economic development. However, rise of democratic governments has created the political stability necessary for investment and economic development meaning that the corporate personality is now more commonly used in Latin America. Consequently, corporate personality issues have become a subject of study in this region. Drawing on case studies from Mexico, Colombia, Brazil and Argentina, Piercing the Corporate Veil in Latin American Jurisprudence examines the ingenuity of Latin American jurisdictions to deal with corporate personality issues and compares this method with the Anglo-American framework. Focusing in particular on the influence of two key factors- legal tradition and the uniqueness of each legal system- the author highlights both similarities and differences in the way in which the piercing of the corporate veil is applied in Latin American and Anglo-American jurisdictions. This book will be of great interest to scholars of company and comparative law, and business studies in general.

Is evil a power or a negation without power? Is darkness substantial or is there substance only in light against which darkness cannot stand? Research by Rolf Witzsche. The book is designed to juxtapose the arrogant impositions of the world's imperial systems and the demands of their rulers, which have no principle to support their claim, against the substance of the principles of our humanity that in historic times have repeatedly brought the light of a renaissance to the dark ages of suffering and subjugation. The book explores our need and our potential for a profound new renaissance in our modern age. The research book presented here is Volume 4 of the research series, Discovering Infinity. The series was created over 15 years, beginning in the late-1980s, based in some degree on the work of Mary Baker Eddy and Lyndon H. LaRouche Jr..
