Corporate Strategies to Internationalise the Cost of Capital


The focus of this book is to illustrate successful strategies employed by Nordic firms to internationalize their capital expenditure. Some of the cases capture solutions for companies residing in highly regulated, segmented, and illiquid capital markets. Other cases illustrate solutions for companies residing in the deregulated, nearly unsegmented capital markets of today.The book is of great interest to actors on financial markets but also useful in courses on finance and industrial organisation.

For their research presented in this book, the authors have received the award for outstanding research in international financial management from the International Financial Management Association in Denmark.

Interdisciplinary European Studies

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.
