  • There was a shading of rose in the pearl arch of sky, deepening at the horizon meeting of sea and air in a rainbow tint of cloud. The lazy swells of the ocean held the same soft color, darkened with crimson veins where spirals of weed drifted. A rose world bathed in soft sunlight, knowing only gentle winds, peace, and—sloth. Ross Murdock leaned forward over the edge of the rock ledge to peer down at a beach of fine sand, pale pink sand with here and there a glitter of a crystalline "shell"—or were those delicate, fluted ovals shells? Even the waves came in languidly. And the breeze...

  • The investment game has changed over the past two decades. Historically, the challenge facing investors has been to identify good investments. While that’s obviously still important, investors increasingly recognize that that alone isn’t enough. Five good mutual funds can still make a bad portfolio, or at least one that’s inappropriate for a given investor’s goals. It’s becoming clear that investors must move beyond good versus bad investments and toward appropriate or inappropriate usage of investments, taking into account their time horizons and risk tolerance.

  • Information about climate1 is used to make decisions every day. From farmers deciding which crops to plant next season to mayors in large cities deciding how to prepare for future heat waves, and from an insurance company assessing future flood risks to a national security planner assessing future conflict risks from the impacts of drought, users of climate information span a vast array of sectors in both the public and private spheres. Each of these communities has different needs for climate data, with different time horizons (see Box 1) and different tolerances for uncertainty...

  • There are many popular investment books, but relatively few provide a dispassionate introduction to the controversies that surround the management of wealth. Even though there are plenty of important articles that take these controversies forward, few of the investment guides pull the different sides of the arguments together in one place. That is what this book seeks to do, in a way which is intended to be of practical use.

  • Recent years have witnessed increasingly growing awareness for long-range planning in all sectors. Companies are concerned more than ever about long-term stability and profitability. The chemical process industries is no exception. New environmental regulations, rising competition, new technology, uncertainty of demand, and fluctuation of prices have all led to an increasing need for decision policies that will be ‘‘best” in a dynamic sense over a wide time horizon. Quantitative techniques have long established their importance in such decision-making problems.

  • This monograph (a preferable term here to ‘book’, I believe) was conceived after I had done a good deal of broadcasting, within the UK and internationally, on the Gulf Coast oil spill. Time is always limited in a broadcast, and facts and valid perspectives need to be got across succinctly to the exclusion of shallow comments which hardly leave a viewer or listener any better informed. I like to go to a broadcast having made a few jottings from news sources which as well as being possible material for the broadcast have attuned my mind to the topic shortly before...

  • The approach to assessing climate risks and im- pacts consists of the following sequential steps: (1) determining climate variables at the level of the city/watershed through downscaling techniques; (2) estimating impacts and vulnerability through hydrometeorological modeling, scenario analysis, and GIS mapping; and (3) preparing a damage/ loss assessment and identification/prioritization of adaptation options. As a first step, each of the city-level studies considered two IPCC scenarios, a high- and a low- emissions scenario, 4 and estimated climate risks to 2050.

  • As can be seen in Table 1, the number of observations available is large and has grown continuously throughout the period studied. Overall, there are data on over 3 million loans for the five dates analysed. This number of observations ensures the efficiency of the econometric estimates presented in the following section. The majority of companies’ loans are not secured by collateral, or in other words, have only a personal guarantee. Thus, on average, almost 85% of loans have no collateral.

  • Diaspora investors tend to have different perceptions of risk than non-diaspora investors. Given their homeland connections, diaspora members may have better information about investment opportunities in their countries of origin and are less sensitive to exchange-rate risks than other investors, because they have domestic-currency obligations in their country of origin such as support payments to family members or running costs of domestic businesses, mortgages, or returns to domestic share-holders. They also may have a different time horizon.

  • The first prediction is that households facing self-control problems will tend to exhibit a decline in consumption between paydays. Intuitively, this is because dynamic inconsistency causes household members to repeatedly succumb to an urge for immediate consumption, and thus run out of money by the end of the pay period (the decline is exacerbated by an unwillingness or inability to borrow, an issue to which we return below).

  • But be Lenin as he may, whether Sally does Solly or Solly does Sally, whether power is inherited, autocratic, bureaucratic, meritocratic, kleptocratic, democratically legitimated, divinely ordained or obtained by gross bodily harm, power is forever both ephemeral and shared. In war, as in peace, all governments share power; and they all pray endlessly that it lasts until tomorrow, just as an atheistic Karoo farmer prays for rain. When shall come the storm? The question “when?” destroys politics just as it destroys economics.

  • Climate change presents a unique challenge for economics: it is the greatest and widest-ranging market failure ever seen. The economic analysis must therefore be global, deal with long time horizons, have the economics of risk and uncertainty at centre stage, and examine the possibility of major, non-marginal change. To meet these requirements, the Review draws on ideas and techniques from most of the important areas of economics, including many recent advances.

  • The successful introduction of extracellular gadolinium-based contrast agents for contrastenhanced MR angiography, and their wide acceptance today, raise the question of what part an intravascular contrast agent might play in diagnostic imaging. The answer lies in the capacity of an intravascular agent to give us high-level diagnostic information from first pass arterial imaging and, at the same time, to yield additional diagnostic value by allowing delayed imaging from the same contrast injection.

  • A more sophisticated technique to measure portfolio risk is value-at-risk (VaR). Whereas a portfolio sensitivity analysis measures portfolio value changes for a specific interest rate change for all securities, VaR measures the maximum potential loss on a portfolio for a specified confidence level and a specified time period. For example, consider a portfolio manager who measures VaR at a 95 percent confidence level and for a 90-day time horizon.

  • This paper examines the informational efficiency of loans relative to bonds using a unique dataset of daily secondary market prices of loans. We find that the loan market is informationally more efficient than the bond market prior to and surrounding infor- mation intensive events, such as corporate (loan and bond) defaults, and bankruptcies. Specifically, we find that loan prices fall more than bond prices prior to an event, and less than bond prices of the same borrower during a short time period surrounding an event.
