Core Concepts of Personal Finance: By Woerheide, Walt

Product Details

Synopsis
* Focus on practical approach to financial planning. Text discusses the real personal finance decisions students face and innovatively relies on web resources to provide students with the tools, information and skills to make these decisions.* Emphasis on Decision Making. Instead of the use of traditional subtitles in each chapter (e.g., alternative forms of housing, performing home affordability analysis ), the text uses questions as the lead-in for each topic (e.g., should I rent or buy?, how do I bid on the property?)* An entire chapter is devoted to the critical topic of time value of money (TVM) and it is integrated into later chapters where appropriate. The solutions to many problems (i.e. How much Life Insurance Should You Have?) are presented through calculators that incorporate time value of money into the computations. Thus, students who have a general concept of what time value of money means but have difficulty doing TVM problems are still able to get through the material deal effectively with the impact of TVM.* Text is brief and applied. Instead of long narratives discussing terms and definitions, the text focuses on decisions that the student will be making during his or her lifetime, beginning with graduation and the selection of the first job. Each chapter has a theme of a person or couple needing to make decisions in that topic area. Key material is emphasized by its inclusion in the sample problems and the solutions to the sample problems. Focus on practical approach to financial planning.

The Changing Geography of Banking and Finance (2009, Hardcover)

Product Details

Synopsis
The editors and contributors tackle a timely subject, and present rigorous research and analysis to demonstrate counter-intuitive results. In so doing, they reinforce the connections between organization and policy in the banking industry and its impact on entrepreneurship, through lending and credit to small and medium-sized businesses. The editors present a carefully organized manuscript that presents both literature reviews and the results of original empirical research that will be of interest to academics and professionals in finance, economics, and policy. The authorship and coverage are global. One of the authors, Michele Fratiani, has close ties to Springer, by virtue of his being a founding editor of Open Economies Review and co-editor of the book series, European and Transatlantic Studies. Two contrasting trends have emerged from the intense integration and consolidation process that swept the European and U.S. banking industry in the 1990s: the geographical diffusion of banking structures and instruments and the geographical concentration of banking power in a few financial centers within each country. The first trend has contributed to greatly reducing the operational distance that separates banks from their clientele. The second has increased the functional distance that separates the bank’s decision center from its operational branches. The conflicting movements in operational and functional distances have left a mark on market structure, financial integration and regulation of the banking industry, and have induced a transformation in organizational structures, lending behavior and relationships between banks and firms. This book not only surveys the significant research effort that has been made recently on the geography of banking and finance, but also provides new insights and empirical evidence on how the geography of banking and finance has evolved and impacted its customers.
