"Conflict-free" Socio-Economic Systems: Perspectives and Contradictions analyses crisis as a component of the growth and development process of economic systems, and its role within the economic cycle.
The scientific treatment of the role of crisis in the development of economic systems has traditionally been divided into two conceptual approaches. The first conceptual approach views crisis as a possibility to reconsider the trajectory of economic development of both the national systems and the
global economic system overall. However, most scholars, politicians, and experts focus on the second conceptual approach, within which economic crisis is seen as a temporary failure in the work of a system which hinders the process of economic growth and development. This became a precondition for
proclaiming a new course of development of the modern national and global economic system oriented at sustainability.
This book provides a strong theoretical and methodological basis to sustainable development of economic systems, for researchers and scholars in the area of economic theory and sustainable economics. In locating the role of crisis within socio-economic systems, Popkova advocates the concept of a
"conflict-free" system as the landmark of global economic development.
Research in the History of Economic Thought and Methodology is an annual research series which presents materials in two fields, both broadly considered: the history of economic thought and the methodology of economics. The annual A-volume contains peer-reviewed articles comparable to other academic
journals in the history of economics, except that long pieces are welcome. The A-volume also publishes symposia, and review essays on new works in the history of economic thought, methodology and related fields (philosophy of science, sociology of science, rhetoric of science, and intellectual
history), including multiple reviews of the same work. The annual B- volume are archival supplements that present previously unpublished materials -- lecture notes, papers, longer manuscripts, correspondence, etc.- of interest in both fields addressed in the A-vol.

The 2017 APBBEF volume includes studies on financial regulations on financial institutions, research on financial markets, and issues on employment and income inequality. Regulations on insurance contracts and derivatives, bank capital standards and subordinated debt prices, and bank’s credit
allocation during the financial crises are of great concern to policy makers. On the financial markets, this volume covers stock market activities and their relationship with industrial production growth and housing prices, a further equity premium puzzle, and accounting fraud and audit fees in
China. This volume also includes the employment assimilation of marriage and human capital investment inequality and the rural-urban income gap in the Asia-Pacific region. Contributors to this volume include Edward J. Kane (Boston College), J. Huston McCulloch (Ohio State University), Cheng-Few Lee
(Rutgers University), Thomas C. Chiang (Drexel University), Chiung-Min Tsai (Central Bank of the Republic of China), Wei-Chiao Huang (Western Michigan University), Hwei-Lin Chuang (National Tsing Hua University), Jingjing Yang (Guangdong University of Foreign Studies), Sayyed Mahdi Ziaei (Xiamen

When it was published in 2002, the first edition of African Economic Development offered an authoritative statement about economic growth on the continent. Its multidisciplinary regional studies built an analytic framework that served as a cornerstone of the field for over a decade.
The second edition offers a new collection of authoritative articles for a new age. In a sweeping survey of African economies, leading scholars offer the latest research into the biggest current influences on African growth and development, taking account of relevant institutional contexts as well
as significant or unique problems that have slowed Africa's progress. Despite recognizing the factors that have resulted in underdevelopment, however, the contributors paint a hopeful picture of the efforts being made to overcome barriers, and they suggest that a significant reduction of poverty is
possible in the near future. Each chapter singles out a particular problem-be it related to demography, geography, politics, climate change, agriculture, or industrialization-and proposes pragmatic solutions that put Africans' needs and capabilities first. Balancing theory and empiricism, and
eschewing vague ideological or political language, this book provides an important vantage point from which to herald Africa's elusive dawn.
For its rigorous scholarship, its unique breadth, and its actionable suggestions for the near future, the second edition of African Economic Development is a must-read for students, researchers, and practitioners of international development.
Air transport service has become an indispensable source of long distance transport for businesses and leisure travelers and for high-value-low-volume products. The significance of this transport service as a driver of economic growth is made abundantly apparent when examining the interdependence
of business and air transport growth in Asia. Given the key role this region plays as a contributor to growth in the global airline transport service sector and the distinctive features of the aviation market observed, it is important to understand the economics of this sector in Asia. This volume
contributes to the understanding of air transport services in Asia by presenting new research in the following four key areas in airline economics: Competition and regulatory change, passenger demand and satisfaction, industry performance, and the interdependence of airlines companies and airports.
Specifically, in this volume prominent researchers in the region have examined important issues such as low cost carrier growth in Japan, competition against full service hub carriers in the Middle East, aviation market liberalization in Central Asia, high-speed-rail and airline competition in
China, air transport and tourism in Asia and Australia, airline performance and outsourcing, airports development, and airport-airline cooperation. These rigorous studies contributes to a better understanding of the aviation market in Asia, allowing better decisions to be made by industry leaders
and government agencies. This book also serves as an excellent reference book for researchers in the transport and logistics industry, and postgraduate students in the disciplines of applied economics, industrial organization, corporate strategy and public policy.
The purpose of An Introduction to Algorithmic Finance is to provide a broad-based accessible introduction to three of the presently most important areas of computational finance, namely, option pricing, algorithmic trading and blockchain. This will provide a basic understanding required for a career
in the finance industry and for doing more specialized courses in finance.An Introduction to Algorithmic Finance breaks down into three parts. The first part provides the necessary theoretical background to Derivatives, Options and Stochastic Dominance. The second part covers various algorithmic
issues of finance, discussing specific algorithms, their applications and consequences. The third part of the book is devoted to blockchain and cryptocurrency which complements the first two parts.An Introduction to Algorithmic Finance is an interesting, important read for anyone interested in or
invested in the finance industry & it highlights and explains current phenomena in algorithmic finance in an articulate manner.
The modern school of Austrian economics took shape in the 1970s, and reflects the social science questions of its time. Is it still relevant today, considering that the theories that drive contemporary social science have evolved dramatically over the past few decades? While Austrian concerns such
as property rights and imperfect cognition have become more common, other aspects of the Austrian thought are even more idiosyncratic than ever.
In the ten chapters included here, leading economists explore whether Austrian economics still has unique insights to offer the world of today. Starting with Peter Boettke’s lead essay, “What is Wrong with Austrian Economics?”, chapters include an array of perspectives responding
to this question, ranging from economics, to intellectual history, to political science, and to philosophy. At the end of the volume, Boettke offers a rejoinder, asking, “What is Right About Austrian Economics?”
Together, these essays explore the barriers to the spread of Austrian ideas, ask which disciplines might be receptive to them, examine the role of ideology and funding in helping and hindering the school, and consider the advantages and disadvantages of different strategies for expanding engagement
with other scholars.
