Stock Markets, Investments and Corporate Behavior examines the nature of stock market growth and decline, the function of financial markets, and their implications for commercial companies. Traditionally, finance academics have attempted to understand financial markets and commercial companies as physicists approach their subject matter: with a set of laws in mind that govern the field. But finance is not physics. The academic's approach falsely assumes that financial markets can be understood as systems within which self-interested maximizers behave in logical ways that are coordinated by the invisible hand of the price mechanism. This book demonstrates that finance is more appropriately understood as a field in which investors and finance managers may or may not use rational calculations as the basis of their decision making.This book opens with an effective dismantling of the traditional mathematical approach used to understand and describe markets and corporate financial behavior. In its place, the mathematics of growth and decline is developed anew, while holding to the realization that the decisions of organizations rely on the choices of real people with limited information available to them. The book will appeal to all students who wish to reappraise their knowledge of finance in a thoughtful manner. Specifically, this book is designed to appeal to anyone who wishes to refine their understanding of the nature of stock markets and financial growth, optimal portfolio allocation, option pricing, asset valuation, corporate financial behavior, and what it means to be ethical in our financial institutions.


Socially Responsible Investment

RRP $93.00

This book integrates socially responsible investment into modern portfolio theory from a multi-criteria perspective. Socially responsible investment is a "new deal" championed by the institutional investment and bank sectors, agents that influence mutual funds and other collective investment schemes and which fear that financial strategies without ethical constraints can harm sustainable growth and prosperity. The book shows how to combine financial criteria such as profitability and risk with non-financial criteria such as the protection of the ecosystem, responsible consumption of energy, and healthcare campaigns. The book's first part presents critical issues in ethical investment, while the second explains in detail the application of goal programming techniques for SRI funds, illustrating their use in actual cases. Part three demonstrates how compromise programming can be applied in the contexts of portfolio selection and risk management. Finally, in its fourth part the book examines the application of other decision-making support methods like the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) framework, the Reference Point Method, and soft computing techniques for portfolio selection.

The costs of substance abuse in the workplace are staggering. Workplace substance abuse adversely affects shareholder, the workforce, customers, and society. The employee assistance program (EAP) has demonstrated its effectiveness in combating the many types of personal problems that impair work performance. EAPs come in many forms, but each costs money. Smits and Pace provide a practical guide to help corporate decision makers construct and fund an EAP tailored to their needs. To help insure a reasonable return on the corporation's EAP investment, the authors suggest linking it strategically to other human resource programs and operating it in a businesslike manner with performance objectives, measurement systems, and accountability for agreed-upon outcomes. The investment model organizes the book into three parts and concludes with an integrative case designed to help the reader apply the concepts presented in the first ten chapters. Part I, Making the Investment, focuses on needs, options, and investment levels. It encourages the reader to think about the EAP as part of a portfolio of human resource programs linked strategically to the organization's business strategy. Part II, Managing the Investment, examines the nuts and bolts of the implementation and operation of the EAP. Part III, Monitoring the Investment, advocates an EAP management information system to help improve EAP efficiency and tttttttveness, to assess the return on investment, and to help guide corporate decision makers when reinvesting in their EAP.
