I arrived in Hong Kong last week having just finished my Masters in International Business. I'm looking to either start my own export brokerage company between China and Latin America or work for a while in a company that already does this in order to get some experience.

I have just started reading 'The Mystery of Capital'
by the celebrated Peruvian economist, Hernando de Soto
. Having lived in Brazil for many years and seen, on a daily basis, the irrepressible entrepreneurial spirit of which he writes, I can relate to the book and whole-heartedly support the fundamental idea running through it that clearly-defined property rights and simplified procedures for starting new businesses represent the best solution to eradicating poverty in the Third World.
I have an 18,000-word Masters in International Business thesis to submit by June 2009. I'd appreciate your suggestions, Metafilter. [more inside]
I've just finished business school and have landed myself an internship at a very respectable multinational company in Barcelona, Spain. The internship is great, the salary dreadful. So, I'm now in a position where I can barely afford to live and need to find something else to suppliment my income.
Can someone give me an idea of what formalities I need to address in order to sell food in the streets of Barcelona? [more inside]
Can someone please point me in the right direction to find practice test papers for Financial Accounting? (Balance Sheets, Income Statements, Statements of Returns on Equity, Cash Flow Statements, Depreciation, Ratios, etc. etc.)
