The first edition introduced a number of ideas into policy circles; the new edition has been shortened and substantially revised to point up the themes. that have subsequently become prominent in discussions of free trade and protection. Trade Policy and Economic Welfare expounds the normative theory of trade policy. It includes discussion of static and dynamic arguments for protection:effects of trade policy on income distribution, monopoly, X-efficiency, foreign investment and capital accumulation; protection of technology industries; the choice between tariffs and subsidies as methods of protection.

When you combine nature?s efficiency and the computer?s speed, the financial possibilities are almost limitless. Today?s traders and investment analysts require faster, sleeker weaponry in today?s ruthless financial marketplace. Battles are now waged at computer speed, with skirmishes lasting not days or weeks, but mere hours. In his series of influential articles, Richard Bauer has shown why these professionals must add new computerized decision–making tools to their arsenal if they are to succeed. In Genetic Algorithms and Investment Strategies, he uniquely focuses on the most powerful weapon of all, revealing how the speed, power, and flexibility of GAs can help them consistently devise winning investment strategies. The only book to demonstrate how GAs can work effectively in the world of finance, it first describes the biological and historical bases of GAs as well as other computerized approaches such as neural networks and chaos theory. It goes on to compare their uses, advantages, and overall superiority of GAs. In subsequently presenting a basic optimization problem, Genetic Algorithms and Investment Strategies outlines the essential steps involved in using a GA and shows how it mimics nature?s evolutionary process by moving quickly toward a near–optimal solution. Introduced to advanced variations of essential GA procedures, readers soon learn how GAs can be used to: ? Solve large, complex problems and smaller sets of problems ? Serve the needs of traders with widely different investment philosophies ? Develop sound market timing trading rules in the stock and bond markets ? Select profitable individual stocks and bonds ? Devise powerful portfolio management systems Complete with information on relevant software programs, a glossary of GA terminology, and an extensive bibliography covering computerized approaches and market timing, Genetic Algorithms and Investment Strategies unveils in clear, nontechnical language a remarkably efficient strategic decision–making process that, when imaginatively used, enables traders and investment analysts to reap significant financial rewards.

The Warren Buffett Way provided the first look into the strategies that the master uses to pick stocks. A New York Times bestseller, it is a valuable and practical primer on the principles behind the remarkable investment run of the famed oracle of Omaha. In this much–awaited companion to that book, author Robert Hagstrom takes the next logical step, revealing how to profitably manage stocks once you select them. THE WARREN BUFFETT PORTFOLIO will help you through the process of building a superior portfolio and managing the stocks going forward. Building a concentrated portfolio is critical for investment success. THE WARREN BUFFETT PORTFOLIO introduces the next wave of investment strategy, called focus investing. A comprehensive investment strategy used with spectacular results by Buffett, focus investing directs investors to select a concentrated group of businesses by examining their management and financial positions as compared to their stock prices. A strategy that has historically outperformed the market, focus investing is based on the principle that a shareholder?s return from owning a stock is ultimately determined by the economics of the underlying business. Hagstrom explains in easy–to–understand terms exactly what focus investing is, how it works, and how it can be applied by any investor at any level of experience. He demonstrates how Buffett arranges his stocks in a focus portfolio and reveals why this is as responsible for his incredible returns as the individual stocks he picks. Ultimately, Hagstrom shows how to use this technique to build and manage a portfolio to achieve the best possible results.

Investing with the Trend provides an abundance of evidence for adapting a rules–based approach to investing by offering something most avoid, and that is to answer the why one would do it this way. It explains the need to try to participate in the good markets and avoid the bad markets, with cash being considered an asset class. The book is in three primary sections and tries to leave no stone unturned in offering almost 40 years of experience in the markets. Part I The focus is on much of the misinformation in modern finance, the inappropriate use of Gaussian statistics, the faulty assumptions with Modern Portfolio Theory, and a host of other examples. The author attempts to explain each and offer justification for his often strong opinions. Part II After a lead chapter on the merits of technical analysis, the author offers detailed research into trend analysis, showing how to identify if a market is trending or not and how to measure it. Further research involves the concept of Drawdown, which the author adamantly states is a better measure of investor risk than the oft used and terribly wrong use of volatility as determined by standard deviation. Part III This is where he puts it all together and shows the reader all of the steps and details on how to create a rules–based trend following investment strategy. A solid disciplined strategy consists of three parts, a measure of what the market is actually doing, a set of rules and guidelines to tell you how to invest based upon that measurement, and the discipline to follow the strategy

Explore the deadly elegance of finance′s hidden powerhouse The Money Formula takes you inside the engine room of the global economy to explore the little–understood world of quantitative finance, and show how the future of our economy rests on the backs of this all–but–impenetrable industry. Written not from a post–crisis perspective but from a preventative point of view this book traces the development of financial derivatives from bonds to credit default swaps, and shows how mathematical formulas went beyond pricing to expand their use to the point where they dwarfed the real economy. You′ll learn how the deadly allure of their ice–cold beauty has misled generations of economists and investors, and how continued reliance on these formulas can either assist future economic development, or send the global economy into the financial equivalent of a cardiac arrest. Rather than rehash tales of post–crisis fallout, this book focuses on preventing the next one. By exploring the heart of the shadow economy, you′ll be better prepared to ride the rough waves of finance into the turbulent future. Delve into one of the world′s least–understood but highest–impact industries Understand the key principles of quantitative finance and the evolution of the field Learn what quantitative finance has become, and how it affects us all Discover how the industry′s next steps dictate the economy′s future How do you create a quadrillion dollars out of nothing, blow it away and leave a hole so large that even years of "quantitative easing" can′t fill it and then go back to doing the same thing? Even amidst global recovery, the financial system still has the potential to seize up at any moment. The Money Formula explores the how and why of financial disaster, what must happen to prevent the next one.

International trade has shaped the modern world, yet until now no single book has been available for both economists and general readers that traces the history of the international economy from its earliest beginnings to the present day. Power and Plenty fills this gap, providing the first full account of world trade and development over the course of the last millennium. Ronald Findlay and Kevin O'Rourke examine the successive waves of globalization and "deglobalization" that have occurred during the past thousand years, looking closely at the technological and political causes behind these long-term trends. They show how the expansion and contraction of the world economy has been directly tied to the two-way interplay of trade and geopolitics, and how war and peace have been critical determinants of international trade over the very long run. The story they tell is sweeping in scope, one that links the emergence of the Western economies with economic and political developments throughout Eurasia centuries ago. Drawing extensively upon empirical evidence and informing their systematic analysis with insights from contemporary economic theory, Findlay and O'Rourke demonstrate the close interrelationships of trade and warfare, the mutual interdependence of the world's different regions, and the crucial role these factors have played in explaining modern economic growth. Power and Plenty is a must-read for anyone seeking to understand the origins of today's international economy, the forces that continue to shape it, and the economic and political challenges confronting policymakers in the twenty-first century. First published in 2007. Ronald Findlay is the Ragnar Nurkse Professor of Economics at Columbia University. He is the author of Factor Proportions, Trade, and Growthand Trade, Development, and Political Economy. Kevin H. O'Rourke is professor of economics at Trinity College, Dublin. He is the coauthor of Globalization and History.

The advent of accurate and continuous equity price histories made possible the study of equity price movement as a function of time, independent of all other variables. Early studies of such data produced the conclusion that equity prices vary in a random, hence unpredictable, way.   This conclusion has been replaced in the last decade as evidence mounts that equity price variation is ordered and quasi-predictable.

The assets and liabilities are mostly financial based, and the equity ratio is far lower than the equity ratios of industrial companies.

Take a bite out of the markets with the Naked Trader! This book is for anyone who really wants to consistently make money trading shares. Trading and investing can be tough - most fail. The human mind is to blame. It's prone to emotion, cluttered with distractions like Twitter and social media, easily trapped by scams. But it's possible to make money in the markets - and to do so reliably. Robbie Burns, aka The Naked Trader, has been trading successfully from his home for 15 years - making over GBP2m tax-free (while eating a lot of toast and watching Game of Thrones). He's also met and helped thousands of fellow traders at his seminars, seen every possible trading meltdown, and knows exactly what can go wrong - but also how to put it right. In Trade Like a Shark, Robbie uses his unique firsthand experience and the real-life stories traders have shared with him to expose exactly how the human mind can play havoc with your trading. At the same time he reveals his tried-and-tested methods for overcoming it, showing how to be a shark, gobbling up money from the 'fish' who are full of fear, greed and other emotions. (And also why modelling yourself on Mr Spock can work wonders.) If you've run into problems trading in the stock market - or just want to reinforce good habits - there is no better or wittier guide to the pitfalls that are out there, and some surprisingly effective ways to overcome them. It's a must-read book on trading psychology - without the jargon. Read it and take your trading to the next level now!
