The quick recovery of Asian economies from recent recessions in comparison to the struggling American and European economies can be attributed in part to the positive aggregate-demand externalities of their self-employment sectors. This book presents a behavioural analysis of this effect, with a detailed focus on producer households.
This Thing Called Trust provides a detailed theoretical analysis of the research about trust, civic society and society capital. Stoneman uniquely provides a complementary empirical analysis which connects discussions of the individual psychology of trust with understandings of its cultural and institutional roots at more aggregate level.
This book explores the diverse challenges facing the EU and in particular examines the impediments to financial stability and sustainable growth and how these can be overcome. Among the topics explored are the extent to which monetary union has favored real convergence, competitive imbalances in the eurozone, and the impacts of austerity measures. Potential solutions are closely scrutinized, highlighting the need for linked fiscal, monetary, credit, and investment choices. Opportunities for public and private investment in infrastructure, human capital, the environment, and innovation are emphasized, as is the role of fiscal stimulus targeting aggregate demand and output. Detailed attention is paid to the importance of coordination of macroeconomic policies and the scope for reforms in EMU design and EU governance. In this context, the proposals in the recent Five Presidents Report are assessed, along with other ideas regarding progressive steps aimed at closer economic, financial, and political union in the medium to long term. Readers will also find separate scrutiny of the Greek crisis and the effectiveness of the third economic adjustment programme. The book comprises a selection of contributions presented at the XXVIII Villa Mondragone International Economic Seminar. Luigi Paganetto is Emeritus Professor and Full Professor of European Economics at the University of Rome Tor Vergata, and President of the Economics Foundation Tor Vergata for Economic Research. He participates as an expert in European and International working groups. He is the author of articles and books in the fields of Macroeconomics, International Economics, Italian and European Industrial Economics, and Energy and Environment.
Systemic Risk Tomography: Signals, Measurement and Transmission Channels recent developments in the measurement of systemic risk, mainly focusing on the Eurozone and providing a comprehensive risk analysis that covers sovereign risk, bank and other financial intermediaries risk, and corporate risk. The book also deals with possible Early Warning Systems based on a risk dashboard that proposes to identify potential vulnerabilities within the financial system. The comprehensive risk analysis detailed in this book is intended to aggregate the individual risk dimensions by using advanced methodologies, such as Dynamic Conditional Correlations, Copula functions and Copula-based models, Regime-switching models, and Network analysis. Explores the economic and financial system of Sovereigns, Banks, other Financial Intermediaries, and Corporations Presents the financial system as a biological entity to be explored in order to identify the main risk signals and provide the right measures of prevention and interventions Offers a new, systemic-based approach to construct a hierarchical, internally coherent framework to be used in developing an effective early warning system Monica Billio obtained her Ph.D in applied mathematics in 1999 from University Paris IX Dapuhine, France. She has held positions of research assistant (GRETA Associates), junior consultant (Caisse Autonome de Refinancement, Paris) and consultant (GRETA Associates). Since November 2006 she was appointed Professor of Econometrics, Department of Economics, University CaFoscari of Venice. Her research nterests include the following: Dynamic latent factor models; Simulation based inference techniques; Volatility and risk modeling; Switching regime models; Volatility transmission and contagion; Systemic Risk; Hedge funds; Mutual fund performance; Business cycle analysis
The Utilization of Slag in Civil Infrastructure Construction strives to integrate the theory, research, and practice of slag utilization, including the production and processing of slags. The topics covered include: production and smelting processes for metals; chemical and physical properties of slags; pretreatment and post-treatment technology to enhance slag properties; potential environmental impact; mechanisms of potential expansion; special testing methods and characteristics; slag processing for aggregate and cementitious applications; suitability of slags for use in specific applications; overall properties of materials containing slags; and commercialization and economics. The focus of the book is on slag utilization technology, with a review of the basic properties and an exploration of how its use in the end product will be technically sound, environment-friendly, and economic. Covers the production, processing, and utilization of a broad range of ferrous, non-ferrous, and non-metallurgical slags Provides information on applicable methods for a particular slag and its utilization to reduce potential environmental impacts and promote natural resource sustainability Presents the overall technology of transferring a slag from the waste stream into a useful materials resource Provides a detailed review of the appropriate utilization of each slag from processing right through to aggregate and cementitious use requirements Dr George Wang is an Associate Professor in the College of Engineering and Technology at East Carolina University, North Carolina, USA. He has over 30 years of experience in special construction materials, advanced highway pavement, transportation infrastructure construction, and construction project management.
The Story of Houston has not proved an easy one to write. A city is in many respects a conglomeration of units rather than an aggregate of unities. the units are of character so varying that it is hard to reduce them to a common denominator. Municipal consciousness is vague and much that happens in the development of a city seems to be fortuitous rather than teleological. Yet Houston has in many respects grown to formula and plan and has often responded heartily to conscious effort made at improvement of conditions. The foundations of the past have been used and effort has been often cumulative in results. Undeniably there is a municipal spirit, an esprit du corps of the citizens that argues well for the future of the town. This book is breathing the history of Houston in 28 stunning and detailed chapters.
