  • The European economy is in the midst of the deepest recession since the 1930s, with real GDP projected to shrink by some 4% in 2009, the sharpest contraction in the history of the European Union. Although signs of improvement have appeared recently, recovery remains uncertain and fragile. The EU’s response to the downturn has been swift and decisive. Aside from intervention to stabilise, restore and reform the banking sector, the European Economic Recovery Plan (EERP) was launched in December 2008.

  • The high data frequency not only helps to validate our results, but also allows us to advance some analysis. For example, in Chapter 5, the fund weekly data are used to calculate the risk-adjusted abnormal return for each year from 2000-2007. Then, it turns into a panel data allowing us to perform a multidimensional (panel) regression on fund characteristics. Furthermore, this is the first empirical study of an emerging market which includes flexible funds in the sample. In theory, a flexible fund is in some ways similar to equity funds since its main assets are also stocks.

  • In recent years a number of OECD countries experienced a rapid increase in housing market activity, which coincided with a period of low real and nominal interest rates. The link between the two is intuitive: low interest rates make credit cheaper and increase the demand for housing. Some scholars argue that expansionary monetary policy has been signicantly responsible for this low level of interest rates and the subsequent house price boom (Hume and Sentance (2009) and Taylor (2009)).

  • In 2008 and 2009, the policy challenge was all about putting out fires. It was a call to action to address a lot of issues, and ICI was deeply involved with regulators and other market participants to sort things out. This year and last, we’ve been in a diˆerent phase. It’s not uncommon after any financial crisis to have a regulatory response, and this one has been broad and deep. Essentially, the sprint of 2008 has turned into a marathon. You have to call on diˆerent skills and diˆerent muscles. So now, perseverance is the order of the day. And what...

  • Audit Committees are no more than a part of those defences. But we believe that they are a most important part and that there could be considerable benefits if their role were clarified and enhanced. This would be beneficial not only in increasing the level of assurance against catastrophic failure and gross malfeasance; it would also offer improvements on a wider front, raising the overall standard of corporate governance for all companies that implement our guidance.

  • We will show that in the two-good nonsequential search model prices of the two goods will be randomized and depending on the nature of demand interrelation we expect to nd no correlation between them if the goods are substitutes or independently valued and negative correlation if they are complements. The latter result derives from an inability to charge the highest price for each good simultaneously as at such pair of prices none of the complements will be purchased at all.

  • The period from 2006 to 2012 saw a number of major events, a very significant one being the global meltdown in the banking and financial services industry (BFSI), which had knock-on effects on almost all business sectors. Considering that we now live in a connected world, India faced its own share of consequences although companies in the BFSI segment remained relatively unaffected by the turmoil seen in the Western world. It seemed as though the tighter regulatory regime had paid a dividend in an imploding global scenario.

  • This paper does not make assertions about the significance of the support to the sponsor, but rather our focus is on the impact of support to prime MMMFs and its potential to cause investors to perceive that prime MMMF portfolios are less risky than they actually are. It should be noted that a support amount as reported in this paper is not necessarily equivalent to a loss realized by the fund sponsor. Instead, in the case of a security purchase, it is indicative of the loss that would have been realized by the fund sponsor if it had disposed of...

  • Following Storch and Tapper (2009), we measured fluency in terms of the total number of words and words per T-unit.

According to Hunt (1970, p. 4), a T-unit is “a main clause plus all subordinate clauses and nonclausal structures attached or embedded in it.

  • The DBMS field has always focused on capturing, organizing, storing, analyzing, and retrieving structured data. Until recently, there was limited interest in extending a DBMS to also manage text, temporal, spatial, sound, image, or video data. However, the Web has clearly demonstrated the importance of these more sophisticated data types. The general problem is that as systems add capabilities, it is hard to make these additions “cleanly.” Rather, there is a tendency to do the minimum necessary to...
