  • Asset allocation investigates the optimal division of a portfolio among different asset classes. Standard theory involves the optimal mix of risky stocks, bonds, and cash together with various subdivisions of these asset classes. Underlying this is the insight that diversification allows for achieving a balance between risk and return: by using different types of investment, losses may be limited and returns are made less volatile without losing too much potential gain.

  • Equilibrium, the retailers use purely mixed strategies for both prices leading to a price dispersion. If the two goods are complements the prices of the two goods within every shop will be, at least locally, negatively correlated while if they are substitutes or have independent valuations the two prices will be randomized independently. Theoretical literature on multiproduct price competition is relatively scarce. The inherent diculty lies in an ability of consumers to mix and match goods o ered by di erent retailers leading to a complicated pattern of choices.

  • How would deleveraging affect a bank’s weighted average cost of funds? Our results suggest that if leverage declines, the cost of equity will also fall. For example, if leverage of the average bank halves to 10, the market beta would fall by 10 basis points. This implies that the average equity factor for banks will fall by 0.4% to 13.0%. Assuming a 5% cost of debt, the weighted average cost of funds for the bank would be 5.8% (ie 0.10*13.0% + 0.90*5%). 7 This is only about 40 basis points higher than when leverage is equal to 20, the average...

  • Since there are often several contributing causes of high prices and poor availability, a single policy response is unlikely to be sufficient. In order to effect real change and maximize impact, a comprehensive package of policy reforms, fully implemented and rigorously enforced, is usually needed.

  • Even if socially responsible investment does not impose a cost on SRI fund investors in terms of reduced before-fee financial performance, these investors could still pay an explicit price for their funds' social responsibility in the form of higher fees. Indeed, there are reasons to expect fees charged by SRI funds to be higher. First, some SRI funds actively engage with the firms in which they invest to encourage them to pursue socially responsible policies. The costs of such active monitoring may be partly passed on to investors in the form of higher expenses.

  • For the investor types believing that active managers can generate alphas, we nd that the ability to identify superior performing funds is further improved, albeit slightly, by augmenting the four-factor model with country indices, even if these indices represent non-priced factors, consis- tent with Pastor and Stambaugh (2002a). To illustrate, our baseline analysis nds CAPM alpha enhancements of up to 5% per year from using macroeconomic state variables to choose funds, relative to active manager choice using an unconditional CAPM model.

Rapid depletion of oil and gas are real issues affecting both current and future generations.

  • There are also marked differences between retailers in terms of their pricing policies. These differences do not only relate to the general price level but also to whether a retailer predominantly pursues permanent pricing policies, or whether high prices alternate with low-price promotions. This latter strategy was an adequate tool in times of relatively high inflation and a subsequent lack of market transparency in order to attract customers.

  • » Organizational structures and policies themselves can serve as risk controls. Segregation of duties, independence of control functions from business lines, and the use of committees or other, more informal approaches for breaking down silos between business units or departments are among a variety of organizational practices that may facilitate effective risk management. Although there is a tension between segregating functions and breaking down silos to facilitate information exchange, risk management requires a bit of both....

  • Kanchha’s father immediately found a job in a brick kiln factory not very far from the city. These kilns produce highly concentrated amounts of fine particulate matter, which interact with other industrial and vehicle fumes over Kathmandu. Brick kilns use coal as their main fuel source, and this contributes to the air pollution in Kathmandu by pumping considerable quantities of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and other toxic substances into the atmosphere. After a few months, Kanchha’s father started to cough.

  • As an advanced representation system, the cinema poses questions of the ways the unconscious (formed by the dominant order) structures ways of seeing and pleasure in looking. Cinema has changed over the last few decades. It is no longer the monolithic system based on large capital investment exemplified at its best by Hollywood in the 1930's, 1940's and 1950's. Technological advances (16mm, etc) have changed the economic conditions of cinematic production, which can now be artisanal as well as capitalist. Thus it has been possible for an alternative cinema to develop.
