Financial boom and gloom : the credit and banking crisis of 2007-2009 and beyond by Dimitris N Chorafas( Book )

20 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the biggest financial crisis of the post-World War II years. A superbubble has been created by high leverage, novel products and the assumption of more and more risk. This has swelled for a quarter of a century and now burst. Institutions are better placed to face this crisis when properly regulated. However, American, British, German and French big banks have fought for the last two decades to reduce the regulators' reach - bringing themselves and the economy the risk of a Second Great Depression. Mortgages were pooled with other mortgages; the pools were sliced into tranches and marketed worldwide as bonds to banks, pension funds, insurance companies, hedge funds and other investors. No one knew, or cared to know, how much risk was embedded in them and how this exposure could be managed if worst came to worst. Supervisory authorities did not react. They looked the other way when the same shaky mortgages were repackaged 20 to 30 times over and sold on. Federal Reserve, Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and other regulators watched this happening in the false belief that markets correct their own excesses - they do not. This book offers comprehensive coverage of how and why credit risk escaped management control and supervisory watch. It gives a down to earth explanation of Collateralized Debt Obligations (CDOs), Credit Defaults Swaps (CDSs), their business opportunities and their risks, plus a clear explanation of the difference between solvency and liquidity. It also includes practical examples on asset-backed commercial papers, structured investment vehicles, the carry trade, auction-rate securities and a case study on Northern Rock. *The author brings the reader right up-to-date with events since this book went to press, in an extra chapter available online at www.palgrave.com
Management risk : the bottleneck is at the top of the bottle by Dimitris N Chorafas( Book )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Globalization's limits : conflicting national interests in trade and finance by Dimitris N Chorafas( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

So far there has been only praise for globalization. However, the export wave of China's manufacturing machine and, more recently, the Global financial crisis show that Globalization has limits. Globalization, the internationalization of trade, and financial integration are having enormous implications for businesses as well as for the whole economies of countries or blocks of countries. In this book Dr. Chorafas argues that research is now producing evidence that there are limits to such globalization and amalgamation and that these need to be better defined and understood if some of the problems now being identified are to be prevented from applying the brakes, or worse, putting the process into reverse gear. The author examines the impact on countries such as the United States and European Union of occurrences like China's emergence as a massive manufacturing platform and the distortions of trade that result, affecting countries' GDP and creating problems such as uncontrollable current account deficits. He also considers the effect of Sovereign Wealth Funds as new entrants on the scene. These, he argues, are seen by some as 'the Trojan horses of state capitalism', particularly in what he defines as the 'absence of a global sheriff'. "Globalization's Limits" looks at the EU and the Euroland as a test of globalization. The conclusions Chorafas draws about the effect on member states of pan-European banking, and the Euro as common currency, have implications for Britain and for the rest of the world. Issues relating to missed opportunities and leadership beg questions such as 'Who, if anybody, is or should be in charge of global monetary policy?'

Energy, environment, natural resources and business competitiveness : the fragility of interdependence by Dimitris N Chorafas( Book )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every generation leaves both assets and liabilities to the next. Alert people can see we are going to leave our children and grandchildren with a nearly unsolvable test of energy supplies; waste polluting the air and water; and, the appalling problem of a huge and uncontrollable explosion in world population. "Energy, Environment, Natural Resources and Business Competitiveness" addresses itself to those having a professional, academic or general interest in these issues: energy sources, their nature and contribution, environmental problems associated to power production and usage, financing and control of energy-related projects and processes, future direction of agriculture produce now used as energy, complex social and technical issues resulting from lack of family planning - and, therefore, of demands for energy, impact of energy and an exploding population on pollution, and truth and hype about the most talked about environmental subjects. In this fourth book for Gower, Dimitris Chorafas reviews Europe, America and Asia's energy needs in the coming decade, pointing out that current policies are inadequate at best, and more likely disastrous for the economy. Governments persist in having their own agenda and priorities as well as plenty of constraints and taboos, yet when he critically examines the challenges Dr Chorafas concludes that no government can solve all current energy problems by acting alone. The book confronts current thinking, and its after-effect on policies and practices. Readers accustomed to mainstream books and articles which blame fossil fuels for a deteriorating world environment will find this a contrary opinion
