Managing in the Turbulent World Economy: Corporate Performance and Risk Exposure


The strategic importance of risk-management is a concern at the forefront of most organisations. Increasingly, uncertainty about macroeconomic environment of the firm is a major concern. It is essential for top management to formulate new strategies to deal with such uncertainty (in terms of uncertainty about exchange rates, interest rates, prices etc.) as traditional financial management is not sufficient. This book deals with the broad management issues related to the uncertain environment in which we operator. The authors look at industry-analysis in order to assess competitiveness based on firms' intrinsic skills.

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.
