Abstract

This two-volume collection brings together the first 53 Joseph Fisher Lectures in economics and commerce, presented at the Adelaide University every other year since 1904. Funds for the Lectures, together with a medal for the top accounting student each year, were kindly provided by a £1,000 endowment to the University by the prominent Adelaide businessman Joseph Fisher in 1903. The Lectures address a wide range of Australian economic issues, in addition to some international economic issues of national significance. They have stood the test of time extremely well, while also providing a reminder of the events and concerns that were prominent at different times during the past century.

Abstract

An unprecedented ascent: from the thirteenth child of a poor Jewish emigration agent to the "sovereign of seafaring" and "friend" of the emperor. No wonder that Albert Ballin was one of the most outstanding figures of the Wilhelmine Empire. From the very beginning, he caused a stir at the Hamburg-American Packetfahrt-Actien-Gesellschaft, or Hapag for short. Under the leadership of their manager Ballin, the latter became the world's largest shipping company. From 1907 until his tragic death on November 9,1918, Ballin was a member of the board of trustees of the Hamburgische Wissenschaftliche Stiftung and had a special impact here as well. This biography traces the extraordinary life of this man. [German edition]

Abstract

Ernst Friedrich Sieveking is one of the outstanding personalities in Hamburg's history. He showed special talents at an early age, so that he was already a fully trained lawyer at the age of 21. He then joined a renowned law firm which he managed successfully for many years on his own. In 1879 Sieveking was appointed the first president of the newly founded Hanseatic Higher Regional Court in 1879. Until his death, for thirty years, he remained president of the Court of First Instance, which earned him a high reputation as an expert on maritime law. In addition, he was actively involved in the founding of Hamburg University, which is why he was also a member of the first board of trustees of the Hamburg Scientific Foundation. Surrounded by three representative buildings, the Sievekingplatz in Hamburg still reminds us of him to this day.
