  • For many years now scholars have consistently mapped virtually all ideas about justice onto one of two continents. According to this cartography, the utilitarian territory is populated by views that stipulate a goal and derive a conception of justice from that goal or objective, usually by specifying a set of principles, rules, and institutions that are expected to be instrumental to its achievement. The most talked about goal in modern times has been the maximization of happiness.

  • Meanwhile, the emergence of distinct business models, a trend pushed by globalisation and the economic rise of Asia, is also forcing financial professionals to re-examine their roles. Chinese and Indian companies in particular have gained global prominence while following their own rules and customs of governance and relationships, bringing into question whether there are universal ‘best practices’ that should be adopted – or at least adapted – by corporations with similar economic aspirations.

  • While the growth in ETF markets is at an early stage in a number of countries, the speed and breadth of financial innovation in the ETF market has been remarkable in some large financial systems over the past five years, and has brought new elements of complexity and opacity into this standardised market. There are a number of disquieting developments in some market segments which call for closer scrutiny. ETFs have branched out to other asset classes (fixed-income, credit, emerging markets, commodities) where liquidity is typically thinner and transparency lower.

It is one of the first papers to utilize extensive cross-country flow and balance sheet data and also to examine subcomponents of GDP in the wake of banking and currency crises rather than focusing exclusively on aggregate GDP.

  • Between 1981 and 1983, one of us (Max) served on the faculty of Boston Univer-sity. At the time, he was conducting laboratory studies on decision biases in negotiation. Behavioral decision research did not exist as a topic of study in most management schools. The faculty at Boston University included a number of excellent colleagues, and yet they knew very little about the emerging research on judgment. This lack of awareness among management colleagues motivated Max to write this book. The goal was to make the area of judgment a more central part of the management literature.

  • Insurers anticipate this adverse job turnover dynamic. Nevertheless, insurers are expected to renew policies and may be reluctant or prohibited from increasing premiums rapidly. As a result, offered premiums for covering a previously uninsured firm are well above the initial expected costs for the firm’s worker’s current age and gender distributions. Such large premium loadings deter small firms from offering health insurance to their workers. A dynamic adverse selection problem emerges.

  • Water utilities have a long history of planning in preparation for emergencies, particularly natural disasters. But contingency and emergency planning has taken on a new dimension with current concern about potential threats to water system security. The range of crises that have become plausible has expanded, and utilities now are considering more robust security procedures and emergency plans than they have historically had in place. When it comes to ensuring a water system’s security, few utilities, regardless of size or geographic location, can function independently.
