Macroeconomic Uncertainty. International Risks and Opportunities for the Corporation

No longer in print.


Oxelheim and Wihlborg tackle the complex system of corporate exposure to international economic risks and they succeed in presenting a unified framework for understanding and coping with international and financial risk management. From the origins of macroeconomic uncertainty, to the measurement of risk exposures, to the management of risk and the performance evaluation of risk managers, the authors reveal the crucial economic underpinnings of the typical stories of foreign exchange exposure management.

This volume will be a very useful supplement to the standard textbooks on corporate decision-making for students and managers seeking a more sophisticated understanding of international economic and financial risks.

The European Union and the Return of the Nation State


This book explores the complex and ever-changing relationship between the European Union and its member states. The recent surge in tension in this relationship has been prompted by the actions of some member state governments as they question fundamental EU values and principles and refuse to implement common decisions seemingly on the basis of narrowly defined national interests.
