The overall nexus between security and development poses some formidable questions about the multiple forms of violence which afflict the international community: Why are some places peaceful while others are violent?

Examining private investment heterogeneity : evidence from a dynamic panel by Kul B Luintel( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We investigate domestic private investment behaviour in a panel of 24 low-income and middle-income countries spanning a period of 1981-2000. The paper rigorously addresses (i) the cross-country heterogeneity in private investment behaviour, and (ii) endogeneity. Indicators of financial sector development and other standard macroeconomic determinants of private investment appear significant in explaining private investment behaviour in out sample; however, the estimated parameters and adjustment dynamics exhibit important cross-country differences. The empirical findings of the paper have important implications namely that first, cross-country heterogeneity needs to be addressed while modelling the private investment behaviour, and second, at the policy level, the country-specific approach appears potentially more effective than the one-size-fits-all approach for boosting private investment"--Abstract

Financial sector structure and financial crisis burden : a model based on the Russian default of 1998 by George Mavrotas( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We consider an overlapping generations model with two production factors and two types of agents in the presence of financial intermediation and its application to the Russian default of August 1998. The paper focuses on the analysis of the consequences of a sudden negative repayments shock on financial intermediation capacity and consequently on the economy as a whole. The model exhibits a 'chain reaction" property, when a single macroeconomic shock can lead to the exhaustion of credit resources and to the subsequent collapse of the whole banking system. To maintain the capability of the system to recover, regulatory intervention is needed even in the presence of the state guarantees on agents' deposits in the banks (workout incentives). We compare the results for an intermediated economy with those derived under the assumption of a market economy, and draw some broad conclusions on the consequences of the crises, which are contingent on the financial sector structure. -- Abstract

Multicriteria portfolio management by Panos Xidonas( )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The disastrous impact of the recent worldwide financial crisis in the global economy has shown how vulnerable international markets are. The insufficiency of our models and tools to effectively intercept the overwhelming consequences of the decline has to be the starting point for re-designing and re-engineering existing portfolio management methods and tools. Under this rationale, three strong necessities become apparent: a) The enhancement of current PM processes and ontologies, b) The improvement of the effectiveness of contemporary portfolio engineering models, and c) The augmentation of the operational transparency and compliance within the PM practice. The methods, tools, and analytics that are presented in this book directly deal with the above objectives and assist in the enhancement of current state-of-the-art by introducing innovative and integrated investment business analytics and frameworks, launching new powerful and robust decision support algorithmic tools and mechanisms, and exploiting multiple risk metrics and standardized risk management procedures, within a fertile coalition. The target audience of this book includes a diversified group of readers, such as portfolio managers, financial managers, economists, bankers, as well as operations researchers and management scientists. Moreover, this monograph can also be used as a textbook for graduate courses in portfolio theory, investment analysis and fund management
