  4. Islamic Capitalism and Finance

    Islamic Capitalism and Finance

    Murat Çizakça
    This illuminating and thought-provoking book questions whether classical Islamic capitalism, which has served Muslims so well for centuries, can provide a viable alternative world economic system. In the current recession – the worst since 1929 – this is surely a provocative question. But if Islamic capitalism is to emerge as a viable alternative, its nature and systems must be well understood. Learn More

  5. The Age of Central Banks

    The Age of Central Banks

    Curzio Giannini
    Curzio Giannini’s history of the evolution of central banks illustrates how the most relevant institutional developments have taken place at times of widespread confidence crises and in response to deflationary pressures. The eminent and highly-renowned author provides an analytical perspective to study the evolution of central banking as an endogenous response to crisis and to the ever increasing needs of economic growth. The key argument of the analysis is that crucial innovations in the payment technology (from the invention of coinage to the development of electronic money) could not have taken place without an institution – i.e. the central bank - that could preserve confidence in the instruments used as money. According to Curzio Giannini’s ‘neo-institutionalist’ methodological approach, social institutions are, in fact, essential in the coordination of individual decisions as they minimize transaction costs, overcome information asymmetries and deal with incomplete contracts.

  8. Money Laundering in the Real Estate Sector

    Money Laundering in the Real Estate Sector

    Brigitte Unger, Joras Ferwerda
    In many countries, the real estate sector is vulnerable to money laundering due to a high number of factors including; the high value of assets, price fluctuations and speculation within the market, difficulties in assessing the true value of a house, and the fact that the legal owner is not necessarily the economic owner. In this book, the authors identify a total of 25 characteristics which render a property susceptible to money laundering. The more such characteristics a property exhibits, the more suspicious it becomes. The authors also discover that some of these characteristics weigh heavier than others. Combining economic, econometric and criminological analysis, this multidisciplinary approach shows how to detect criminal investment in the real estate sector. Learn More

    The Euro and Economic Stability

    Edited by Ewald Nowotny, Peter Mooslechner, Doris Ritzberger-Grünwald
    The Euro and Economic Stability assesses the euro area’s merits as a shelter and the merits of euro assets as a safe haven and reviews the case for rapid euro adoption from a post-crisis view. Policymakers and economists provide relevant lessons from euro area divergences for future euro area members and, more generally, from the financial crisis, while banking representatives discuss post-crisis business models of banks in the area. Last but not least, a theoretical introductory chapter fills the gap between mainstream macroeconomic modelling and real-world decision-making. Learn More

    Microfoundations of Economic Success

    Edited by David G. Mayes
    This book uses detailed data on individual firms and households to explore the basis behind Estonia’s record as the most successful of all the EU countries over the last decade. We find that much of the reason is the greater flexibility of the Estonian economy, in both price setting in employment and wages and in consumption. Estonia is also able to adjust to shocks more rapidly and with less cost than other countries. Coupled with a favourable macroeconomic policy and a good institutional structure and legal framework, Estonia will be an example to others despite the recent downturn. Learn More
