Macrofinancial Risk Analysis (The Wiley Finance Series)
This book gives a new perspective on how investors and policy makers can analyze risk and vulnerabilities in economies, both emerging market and industrial, by using modern risk management and financial engineering techniques. Using recent advances in this field and the theory of finance, an economic value can be placed on vulnerabilities caused by inter-linkages between different sectors of the economy, the macroeconomic risks due to external shocks quantified, and the value ex-ante of various policy measures to respond to crises calculated.

Risk and risk management can sometimes be misunderstood. There is a view that the prudent approach is to avoid risk by simply maintaining the status quo. Linked to this is the idea that audit is a barrier to risk taking and innovation. Also, spending time developing risk management strategies can sometimes be perceived as mere pointless bureaucracy. Failure to take opportunities can be a huge risk in itself. By not looking at new ways of doing things organizations can miss out on real opportunities to manage better their business, improve servi…

Most decision making processes involve risk associated with the uncertainty of a range of outcomes that may, or may not, occur at some time in the future. In recent years, many of the recent advances in risk theory have come from the field of financial mathematics. While the latter subject is now well developed I claim that there are still some important aspects of decision-making involving risk that are not covered by the existing theory. In particular, I believe that the following three questions require further investigations. 1. How to ma…

At a practical level, mathematical programming under multiple objectives has emerged as a powerful tool to assist in the process of searching for decisions which best satisfy a multitude of conflicting objectives, and there are a number of distinct methodologies for multicriteria decision-making problems that exist. These methodologies can be categorized in a variety of ways, such as form of model (e.g. linear, non-linear, stochastic), characteristics of the decision space (e.g. finite or infinite), or solution process (e.g. prior specification…
