Discount Schedule Analysis (DSA), a technique illustrated and explained in this management book, provides analytical tools for increasing profits by linking prices and discounts to management decision making. According to the authors, the most direct way for many manufacturers to affect the bottom line is to reduce the prices paid for goods and services. It is possible to achieve this profit leverage effect without switching suppliers or even requiring suppliers to reduce prices. The authors show how to analyze published quantity discount schedules to find out how the seller sets prices and how to break schedules down into fixed and variable (cost) components. With this information, corporate buyers can exploit vendors' price and quantity discount schedules to maximum advantage. Conversely, corporate vendors can forestall revenue losses and undesirable side effects of discount schedules by constructing schedules according to examples in the book. Using actual price schedules, the authors analyze the ideas, theory, hazards, and advantages inherent in the schedules. They examine how quantity discounts are set, whether the price-setting practices are consistent, and whether the discounts meet their stated objectives. The book explains the gray market phenomenon and how to profit from it. It shows how to evaluate the true costs of such common sweeteners as free delivery, installation, and delayed payment. The authors also analyze purchasing requirements for Just in Time (JIT) inventory systems. The book offers valuable methodologies for both the buyer and the seller. Purchasing managers as well as managers responsible for cost accounting, marketing, sales, finance, and legal areas will benefit.

"It's been a long time since I read a novel with such charm, generosity, humor, daring, and brilliance. It is just splendid." -- Bobbie Ann Mason

Thirty years after her stepbrother's unsolved murder, a reluctant Mary Byrd Thornton is forced by a detective's call to return to her family and again confront the crime's irremovable stain.

This stunning debut--from the cofounder of the legendary Square Books in Oxford, Mississippi--is a work of fiction, but the murder is based on the still-unsolved case of Lisa Howorth's stepbrother, a front page story in the Washington Post. And yet this is not a crime novel; it is an honest and luminous story of a particular time and place in the South, where even calamitous weather can be a character, everyone has a story, and all are inextricably entwined.

With a flamboyant cast, splendid dark humor, a potent sense of history, and a shocking true story at its heart, Flying Shoes is a rich and candid novel from a fresh new voice about family and memory and one woman's flight from a wounded past.

About the Author

She received the Governor's Award for Excellence in the Arts in 1996 and a MacDowell Colony Fellowship in 2007. Her writing has appeared in Garden & Gun and the Oxford American.
