Handbooks in Finance: Handbook of Corporate Finance : Empirical Corporate…

Product Details

6-Pack; Geography is the study of places on Earth. Places have physical characteristics, including landforms and climate. Places also have human characteristics, which are changes people make. Maps can show the physical and human characteristics. An area that shares more than one characteristic forms a region. People form nations and communities. Places change over time. Judging by the sheer number of papers reviewed in this Handbook, the empirical analysis of firms’ financing and investment decisions-empirical corporate finance-has become a dominant field in financial economics. The growing interest in everything “corporate” is fueled by a healthy combination of fundamental theoretical developments and recent widespread access to large transactional data bases. A less scientific-but nevertheless important-source of inspiration is a growing awareness of the important social implications of corporate behavior and governance. This Handbook takes stock of the main empirical findings to date across an unprecedented spectrum of corporate finance issues, ranging from econometric methodology, to raising capital and capital structure choice, and to managerial incentives and corporate investment behavior. The surveys are written by leading empirical researchers that remain active in their respective areas of interest. With few exceptions, the writing style makes the chapters accessible to industry practitioners. For doctoral students and seasoned academics, the surveys offer dense roadmaps into the empirical research landscape and provide suggestions for future work. *The Handbooks in Finance series offers a broad group of outstanding volumes in various areas of finance *Each individual volume in the series should present an accurate self-contained survey of a sub-field of finance *The series is international in scope with contributions from field leaders the world over
