Imports to Discipline the Market

Imports to Discipline the Market

Amidst the globalization trend and increasing economic integration in the Southeast and East Asian region, this book assesses the trade liberalization experience of the Philippines focusing on its impact on competition. It covers not only the overall manufacturing industry but also a case study of the cement industry where an alleged cartel is known to operate. From the fifties till the seventies, Philippine manufacturing received heavy protection from high tariffs, import controls and restrictions. Government-sanctioned monopolies and cartels were allowed along with price controls and entry regulations. In the 1980s up to the mid 1990s, substantial trade reforms were pursued leading to reduced industry protection. After more than twenty years of unilateral trade reforms, it is important to ask whether this has led to reduced market power and increased domestic competition. Are imports effective in disciplining an industry particularly those characterized by collusive behavior such…

Структурирование опционных продуктов на основе метода оптимизации

Структурирование опционных продуктов на основе метода оптимизации

В настоящее время мировые финансовые рынки характеризуются высокой нестабильностью и степенью риска. Инвестирование в первичные активы (акции,АДР,ETF,паи инвестиционных фондов) на фондовом рынке сопряжено с неконтролируемым риском. В мировой финансовой практике одним из способов устранения риска является использование различных деривативов и структурных продуктов, в том числе опционов. При использовании опционов для целей хеджирования и спекуляций, в большинстве случаев, используются одиночные опционные контракты, либо стандартные опционные стратегии: колл/пут-спрэды, коллары, бабочки, cтрэддлы, стрэнглы, календарные и диагональные спрэды и другие опционные стратегии. С помощью таких стратегий не всегда могут быть реализованы инвестиционные цели и требования инвестора, содержащие сложные (нелинейные) целевые показатели доходности и/или ограничения по риску и стоимости. Поэтому исследования в области систем инвестирования в фондовый рынок с оптимальным соотношением доходности, риска и…

Вовремя и в рамках бюджета. Управление проектами по методу критической цепи

Вовремя и в рамках бюджета. Управление проектами по методу критической цепи

Завершить проект вовремя и в рамках бюджета — мечта любого руководителя проектов. Тем не менее, большинство проектов затягиваются, а смета превышает запланированную. Виной всему вариабельность процессов: неожиданная нехватка людей, перегрузка цехов, отказы оборудования, проблемы с подрядчиками и качеством. Попытка ужесточить планирование ни к чему не приводит: жизнь все равно преподносит сюрпризы, которых нет в плане. Ключ к результативному управлению проектами — в учете вариабельности при помощи метода критической цепи, который разработан на основе теории ограничений Голдратта и статистического подхода Деминга. По мнению автора, вариабельность вполне можно поставить под контроль и добиться выполнения проекта в срок даже в сложной и неопределенной ситуации. Книга будет интересна всем руководителям проектов, а также топ-менеджерам, контролирующим выполнение сложных проектов.

Bimetallism: An Economic and Historical Analysis (Studies in Macroeconomic History)

Bimetallism: An Economic and Historical Analysis (Studies in Macroeconomic History)

This book presents a history of Western monetary systems and explains why the system was preferred to a gold standard before 1800. Professor Redish argues that the technological ability to issue fiduciary monies, and a commitment mechanism to prevent opportunistic governments changing the ratio between the currency and a unit of gold, were (frequently overlooked) prerequisites for the emergence of the Classical gold standard. The simplicity of the gold standard, a monetary system where there is a fixed ratio between a weight of gold and a unit of currency, makes it an obvious focus for discussion of commodity money systems, and for contrasts with today’s fiat money regimes.
