Energy, just like labor and capital, is universally acknowledged to be the fundamental production factor and strategic resource of an industrial society. China's sustained rapid economic growth has resulted in its ever-growing energy import dependency, especially oil. Meanwhile, world energy markets have fluctuated dramatically, and international crude oil prices have risen sharply. These factors have combined to make national energy security a hot strategic issue for China's government and society.

Focusing on these issues, Energy Economics: Modeling and Empirical Analysis in China includes analyzes of the scenarios of different policies. A comprehensive reference on China's energy policy, the book covers:

  • Gross and structural features of China's energy economy
  • Forecasting of China's energy supply and demand
  • Fluctuations in the international oil market and China's counter-measures
  • Energy-environment problems and reduction in CO2 emissions
  • Strategic petroleum reserves and national energy security
  • Energy technology progress and change

The first volume of a series of China Energy Reports, this book is a collection of the research results on energy strategy and policy issues investigated by the Center for Energy & Environmental Policy Research (CEEP), Institute of Policy and Management (IPM), and Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). It only analyzes the policies of the issue, but also briefly discusses econometric models and methodologies, data sources and pretreatment, and present empirical result analyses and discussions and opportunities for further study. Exploring changes in the international and domestic energy-economy, the book provides support for decision-makers and promotes the exchange of findings with energy policy research peers.

Liberalization, Growth and the Asian Financial Crisis - Lessons for Developing and Transitional Economies in Asia (Hardcover):... Liberalization, Growth and the Asian Financial Crisis - Lessons for Developing and Transitional Economies in Asia (Hardcover)
Mohamed Ariff, Ahmed M. Khalid
R3,446 Discovery Miles 34 460 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This timely book examines the effects of financial liberalization in the more advanced economies of Southeast Asia. The book also analyses the degree to which emerging and transitional economies in East and South Asia can benefit from this example. The weakness of the banking sector is examined in order to explain the reasons behind the currency crisis and to prescribe policies to avoid a similar episode in the future. Further, the book documents the individual steps taken to liberalize the economies over a period of about 20-30 years in each country. The analyses reveal that liberalization led to high growth in economies undertaking such reforms while unwillingness to take such reforms appear to have led to poor growth and hence low social development. This finding contradicts the common belief that liberalization led to the financial crisis and then to growth collapse. An efficient and liberalized financial sector is an essential precondition for promoting and accelerating economic growth and welfare. Arguments supporting this policy are based on the experience of Southeast Asian economies, particularly the pioneers such as Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Thailand. This has led some less developed countries in East and South Asia to initiate the process of financial sector reforms and to realize the potential benefits of such reforms. The authors analyse the reform process and the lessons to be drawn from the experiences of these economies in their quest for sustained development in East and South Asia.

Corporate Governance and Financial Performance - A Study of German and Uk Initial Public Offerings (Hardcover, illustrated... Corporate Governance and Financial Performance - A Study of German and Uk Initial Public Offerings (Hardcover, illustrated edition)
Marc Goergen
R1,972 Discovery Miles 19 720 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This important book presents a new original study of the German and UK financial markets. It addresses the relationship between corporate governance, ownership and financial performance in German and UK firms floated during the 1980s. Marc Goergen uses detailed company micro-data to examine the ownership and performance of each firm from the time of its flotation to six years later. He finds that the evolution of ownership depends on certain corporate characteristics and that differences in financial performance cannot be explained simply by differences in the concentration of ownership. The book sheds new light on the important issue of whether corporate ownership influences or is influenced by financial performance. The main findings of the book have important implications for public policy and the current public debate on corporate governance and the globalisation of financial markets. They are important for established financial markets and the transitional economies of Eastern and Central Europe as well as for international scholars interested in issues of corporate governance and the performance of firms.

Advanced Capital Budgeting - Refinements in the Economic Analysis of Investment Projects (Hardcover): Harold Bierman, Seymour... Advanced Capital Budgeting - Refinements in the Economic Analysis of Investment Projects (Hardcover)
Harold Bierman, Seymour Smidt
R3,280 Discovery Miles 32 800 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book is a companion volume to the author's classic The Capital Budgeting Decision and explores the complexities of capital budgeting as well as the opportunities to improve the decision process where risk and time are important elements.

There is a long list of contenders for the next breakthrough for making capital budgeting decisions and this book gives in-depth coverage to:

  • Real options. The value of a project must take into consideration the flexibility that it provides management, acknowledging the option of making decisions in the future when more information is available. This book emphasizes the need to assign a value to this flexibility, and how option-pricing theory (also known as contingent claims analysis) sometimes provides a method for valuing flexibility.
  • Decomposing cash flows. A project consists of many series of cash flows and each series deserves its own specific risk-adjusted discount rate. Decomposing the cash flows of an investment highlights the fact that while managers are generally aware that divisions and projects have different risks, too often they neglect the fact that the cash flow components may also have different risks, with severe consequences on the quality of the decision-making.


Designed to assist business decisions at all levels, the emphasis is on the applications of capital budgeting techniques to a variety of issues. These include the hugely significant buy versus lease decision which costs corporations billions each year. Current business decisions also need to be made considering the cross-border implications, and global business aspects, identifying the specific aspects of internationalinvestment decisions, appear throughout the book.

Arne Sandstrom
R2,767 Discovery Miles 27 670 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Until now there were no published analyses of the recent solvency work conducted in Europe, specifically the risk categories proposed by the International Actuarial Association (IAA). Answering the insurance industry's demand in the wake of the EU Solvency II project, Solvency: Models, Assessment and Regulation provides a concrete summary and review of solvency and inspires additional work in the field. Following an introduction to the concept, the first section of the book provides a historical review of solvency, detailing solvency regulation and accounting within the EU. A review of the steps leading to Solvency II looks at accounting, supervision, the actuarial field, the first phase of Solvency II, international approaches to banking, and the solvency systems of 12 major nations. The second section explores the current basis for solvency modeling, focusing on the valuation of assets and liabilities, dependency and various conservative approaches, as well as a baseline and benchmark approach. This section also provides examples of risk structure and the effects of diversification. The final section discusses groups and internal modeling as it relates to EU Solvency II. It addresses insurance groups, financial conglomerates, reinsurance, the importance of internal modeling and stress testing, and the current state of the second phase of EU Solvency II.
