First of all, the program is very well designed and has a potential for a rapid increase in visibility and attractiveness to high quality students. I like its mix of theoretical and practical aspects. Thus, I expect the experience of teaching in the program will be both useful and pleasant for me. I taught an intensive MBA course on options at EDHEC in 2007, and I liked that experience quite a bit. The students were very good, hard working, and ambitious. In addition, Nice, with its climate, food and hospitality, is a beautiful city to spend some time in. Moreover, I have written papers with EDHEC Professor L. Martellini, and I ...
Both general markets (where many commodities are traded) and specialized markets (where only one commodity is traded) exist. Markets work by placing many interested buyers and sellers in one "place", thus making it easier for them to find each other. An economy which relies primarily on interactions between buyers and sellers to allocate resources is known as a market economy in contrast either to a command economy or to a non-market economy such as a gift economy . In finance , financial markets facilitate: – and are used to match those who want capital to those who have it. Typically a borrower issues a receipt to ...
A Rebuttal for Kartik Athreya | Paul Legato
deriding the unwashed, mouth-breathing public for presumptuously daring to have an opinion about his area of expertise is making the rounds , predictably being slammed by those of us with the audacity to hold an opinion about some subject in which we lack a PhD. I list reasons why professional “expert” economists are useless or even dangerous, and why Athreya’s real problem is American culture. Economists’ general failure to have made many useful predictions in the past, as a profession. How many trained, qualified PhD economists warned us about the onset of the Great Recession in 2006? Right. About as ... market research, surveys and trends

Risk And The Capital Of Insurance Companies - Research and Read ...
Insurance companies, like other financial institutions, have been evolving from specialized businesses to enterprises offering a variety of financial services. Rising interest rates impelled this evolution during much of the past three decades as most insurers tried to remain competitive. As insurers' profit margins subsided and they attracted new business, their assets generally grew more rapidly than their capital. This erosion of capital per dollar of assets for insurance companies concerned their regulators, especially as more insurers increased their investments in assets commonly regarded as risky. To maintain the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Shadowing ministers
In July 2009, UK Shadow Chancellor George Osborne called for abolition of UK’s umbrella financial sector watchdog, the Financial Services Authority (FSA). At that time, no one took him seriously. The Labour government under Gordon Brown was still in power and though it had become increasingly unpopular, a Tory victory in the May 2010 elections was a distant possibility. In June 2010, Osborne, now Chancellor in the Tory-led government of David Cameron, suited action to words and abolished the FSA. With this, the curtain came down on a 13-year experiment — the FSA was established by Labour government under former Prime Minister ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
China and Japan duel for control of Asia's economic duopoly
The world is nervously watching as leaders in Tokyo and Beijing attempt to steer their countries, through a very different set of circumstances, to continued sucess By Heizo Takenaka Wednesday, Jul 07, 2010, Page 9 In today��s Asia, there are two economic powers of global standing: Japan and China.

FRB: Finance and Economics Discussion Series: Screen Reader ...
This paper sets out the theoretical foundations for continuous-time signal extraction in econometrics. Continuous-time modeling gives an effective strategy for treating stock and flow data, irregularly spaced data, and changing frequency of observation. We rigorously derive the optimal continuous-lag filter when the signal component is nonstationary, and provide several illustrations, including a new class of continuous-lag Butterworth filters for trend and cycle estimation. Disclaimer: Disclaimer: This report is released to inform interested parties of research and to encourage discussion.

Shoul Harvard and Myron Scholes really have been accused of ...
David Hare's latest mission is to grapple with the financial crisis – dramatically, that is. But can his state-of-the-nation play, The Power of Yes, get to grips with such convoluted economics and be engaging into the bargain? The answer is "Yes!" On balance, at least. Obviously, it wouldn't do to create a bubble of hype. The writer himself adopts an anxiously modest stance when he appears as a prologue. Played by the actor Anthony Calf (a Hare lookalike), the Author steps downstage, surrounded by barren darkness, and announces, "This is not a play." "Dear me!" you may sigh. Actually, ...
