Созданный Грэмом и Доддом в 1934 году учебник "Анализ ценных бумаг" уже более 60 лет является библией для инвесторов. Книга, по всеобщему признанию, стала самой влиятельной и популярной из когда-либо написанных книг об искусстве вкладывать деньги. Она учит тому, как истолковывать балансовые отчеты и другие финансовые документы, характеризующие прошлую, текущую и будущую прибыльность компаний, как извлекать прибыль из операций с акциями, облигациями, привилегированными акциями и другими финансовыми инструментами.
Книга служит практическим руководством для аналитика ценных бумаг, портфельного менеджера, брокера, инвестиционного банкира или просто серьезного частного инвестора.

In this paper we survey the literature on asymmetric price transmission. This literature contains a substantial share of publications by agricultural economists. After classifying the different types of asymmetric price transmission in section 2, we describe the explanations for asymmetric price transmission that have been proposed in section 3. In section 4 we focus on the econometric techniques used to quantify asymmetry. Section 5 concludes with a discussion of outstanding methodological problems and suggestions for future research. Our main conclusion is that the existing literature is far from being unified or conclusive, and that a great deal of work remains to be done. A wide variety of often conflicting theories of and empirical tests for asymmetry co-exist in the literature. Furthermore, existing tests are not discerning in the sense that they as a rule to do not make it possible to choose between competing explanations for asymmetry on the basis of empirical results. Therefore, after more than three decades of work, a considerable need for further research remains, and it would appear premature to draw far reaching conclusions for theory and policy on the basis of work to date.

How advertising and marketing managers can partner with their ad agencies--to achieve new levels of advertising success. Czerniawski and Maloney explain that most ad and marketing managers don't understand their own responsibilities in the ad creation process--or how to manage the delicate relationship with their agency. In this breakthrough book, frustrated managers can learn the four basics that build highly effective, highly targeted advertising. The book shows how to:

1. establish the strategic vision (the positioning) for the brand;
2. provide clear ad development direction (that's based on consumer insight);
3. provide and nurture an effective creative process;
4. coach the ad agency to success.

Эта книга о том, как менеджеры по рекламе и маркетингу могут взаимодействовать со своими рекламными агентствами в целях достижения успеха рекламных кампаний. Авторы показывают четыре базовых аспекта создания высокоэффективной, четко нацеленной рекламы, начиная с определения позиционирования бренда и заканчивая непосредственно работой с рекламным агентством для достижения успеха.

Drawing from the interim findings of a 2 year, EU-wide project, this paper considers the contribution the CAP makes to territorial cohesion across Europe. It is based on analysis of indicators at NUTS 3 level for the EU 27 (including Switzerland and Norway) and initial findings from a case study of CAP support in a region of Austria. Analysis shows that the incidence of Pillar 1 support is not consistent with the economic or social cohesion objectives of the EU. In particular, statistical analysis suggests that Pillar 1 support is distributed in such a way that it tends to benefit richer regions with lower unemployment rates and with higher than average population growth. Contrary to expectations, the incidence of Pillar 2 support is also inconsistent with cohesion objectives, favouring the richer areas of the EU. Reasons identified for the pattern of Pillar 2 support include differing national priorities, the uneven allocation of RDR funds and difficulties of co-financing in poorer regions. Importantly, analysis of the impact of the Mid Term Review proposals on farm incomes suggests that the latest reforms of the CAP will not improve the consistency between the CAP and cohesion. The paper discusses the key policy implications arising from the findings. It is argued that although member states are increasingly able to direct discretionary support measures towards territorial priorities, this is still only a very minor part of the CAP. As is exemplified by the case study in Austria, only a substantial comprehensive effort of rural development measures can provide compensatory territorial effects. Finally, the need for a more coherent, integrative rural development policy framework is discussed.

Although there is broad agreement that well functioning land rental markets will play an important role to increase productivity and household welfare as agrarian economies develop, evidence from Africa on the actual performance and impact of such markets is limited. We use data from Uganda to test for differences in the performance of rental, as compared to sales markets and their evolution over time, based on a framework where markets are affected by differences in ability and imperfections in rural labor and capital markets.

We find that land markets are very active, that land rental but not sales markets transfer land to more efficient and relatively poor producers thereby providing an opportunity for the landless to access land, and that rental market activity has increased recently with economic growth. Despite land prices in some regions being above the net present value of land we find no evidence for sales markets leading to land concentration and conclude that, rather than imposing administrative restrictions, government should aim to improve access to alternative savings instruments.

This textbook provides a comprehensive and up to date review of the rapidly expanding business cycle literature. It covers three key strands of the theory which have dominated recent literature in the subject: equilibrium (monetary and real) business cycles, nonlinear business, cycle models and political business cycle theories.
Business Cycles is designed for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students of macroeconomics and monetary theory and policy and academic economists wishing to keep abreast of the substantial recent developments in this field.

This study investigated the efficiency and productivity change of a sample of food distribution units (MERCAs) in Spain over the 1.997-1.999 period, applying non-parametric frontier methodology in a sales efficiency framework. We specified a mean sales model composed of two blocks of variables, the production block, and the marketing management block. Then we applied output oriented DEA methodology to perform the efficiency analysis, also taking into account the overall efficiency decomposition into pure and scale efficiency. The Malmquist index was calculated in order to analyse the components of the productivity change.

The mean pure sales efficiency index was high, around 0.8, the mean scale index being 0,9. As appears from the results, six food distribution units were efficient, but some of the wholesale markets need to adapt their sales technology in order that their input bundle reaches a Most Productive Scale Size unit.

We found no evidence of technical change during the period considered, but concluded that a notable scale efficiency change took place during the studied period.

To summarise, we conclude that improvement in sales efficiency could be reached in the studied sector in both the pure and the scale efficiency.

In Rwanda for the past decade, rural households have lived with civil unrest and genocide, changing land laws, large population flows both into and out of the country, and climatic threats with droughts and floods. The illness and untimely death of prime age adults from a number of health problems (increasingly HIV/AIDS) adds to the stress of these households and has lasting effects on the ability of households to survive. In this research, the authors use household and member level survey data to increase understanding about what is happening in households with such shocks and how they may be different from other Rwandan rural households.

This research finds that households affected by adult illness and death strive to maintain their agricultural production, and work to avoid selling assets, yet some households appear to be in a downward spiral, losing assets and income earning potential. They rely heavily on social networks for labor and skills, but clearly these networks will be stretched beyond their means in any continuing epidemics. Female-headed households in particular struggle to find labor with neighbors or work more themselves. If special programs are developed for the affected families, focusing on increasing land and labor productivity fits into their own strategies. Since households with prime age death and disease appear to be similar to other Rwandan households in the poorest two quintiles, such programs would be beneficial to rural households in general, and possibly strengthen social networks through generalized agricultural and income growth.

Авторы предполагают, что контакт лицом к лицу способствует установлению раппорта и тем самым помогает переговорщикам согласованно вырабатывать взаимовыгодные решения в конфликтах со смешанными мотивами. В частности, в книге проверяется гипотеза о том, что в атмосфере сотрудничества визуальный доступ переговорщиков к невербальному поведению друг друга способствует обоюдному состоянию раппорта, облегчающему взаимную кооперацию. Было проведено два эксперимента. В первом эксперименте имитировались переговоры во время забастовки с вариантами, когда переговорщики стояли лицом к лицу или боком друг к другу (не видя друг друга). Пары, стоявшие лицом к лицу, чаще и быстрее приходили к согласию, получая большие выгоды для обеих сторон. Альтернативная интерпретация в терминах эффекта предчувствия при контакте лицом к лицу не оправдалась. Во втором эксперименте ранее не знакомые переговорщики общались лицом к лицу или по телефону, прежде чем расстаться для игрового конфликта, построенного по типу дилеммы заключенного. Пары, общавшиеся лицом к лицу, с большей вероятностью согласовывали результат с наибольшим обоюдным выигрышем. Благоприятный эффект контакта лицом к лицу был статистически взвешен мерой диадного раппорта. Результаты не подтвердили альтернативную интерпретацию, учитывавшую ожидания переговорщиков относительно решения противной стороны. В заключении обсуждается роль аффективного и диадного процессов в социально-психологических моделях разрешения конфликтов.

This paper surveys the literature on the macroeconomic effects of government debt. It begins by discussing the data on debt and deficits, including the historical time series, measurement issues, and projections of future fiscal policy. The paper then presents the conventional theory of government debt, which emphasizes aggregate demand in the short run and crowding out in the long run. It next examines the theoretical and empirical debate over the theory of debt neutrality called Ricardian equivalence. Finally, the paper considers the various normative perspectives about how the government should use its ability to borrow.

Some researchers have pointed out that the mere formation of an alliance is not sufficient guarantee for the achievement of its potential benefits. During its implementation, the behaviour of the companies will play a key role for the appropriate development of the relationship. Through a case study methodology of research, the authors analyse why in some agreements a more cooperative relationship is reached among the partners than in others. The authors tried to advance in the knowledge about the determinant factors of the partners behaviour in both international and domestic strategic alliances. A theoretical model related to the determinant factors of the cooperative behaviour is the major result of this paper.

Using a partial equilibrium model of world agriculture, we investigate the multilateral removal of all border taxes and farm programs and their distortion of world agricultural markets. These distortions have significant terms-of-trade effects. World trade is also significantly impacted by both types of distortions. Trade expansion is substantial for most commodities, especially dairy, meats, and vegetable oils. Net agricultural and food exporters (Brazil, Australia, and Argentina) emerge with expanded exports; whereas net importing countries with limited distortions before liberalization are penalized by higher world markets prices and reduced imports. The US gains significant export shares in livestock products and imports more dairy products. Without protection and domestic subsidies, the EU loses many of its livestock and dairy export markets.

This paper investigates the relationship between theft and poverty in rural areas. Following a disputed presidential election, fuel supply to the highlands of Madagascar was severely curtailed in early 2002, resulting in a massive -- if temporary -- increase in poverty. This situation constituted a natural experiment of the effect of poverty on theft. Using original survey data collected in June 2002 at the height of the crisis, we find that crop theft increases with poverty and that an increase in law enforcement personnel reduces cattle theft, a form of organized crime. Results suggest that theft is used by some of the rural poor as a risk coping strategy. Increased transport costs led to a rise in cattle and crop theft, suggesting that isolation raises crime.
