    HG 4523 F36 2017
    Few scholars have been as influential in finance and economics as University of Chicago professor Eugene F. Fama. Over the course of a brilliant and productive career, Fama has published more than one hundred papers, filled with diverse, highly innovative contributions.

    Published soon after the fiftieth anniversary of Fama's appointment to the University of Chicago and his receipt of the Nobel Prize in Economics, The Fama Portfolio offers an authoritative compilation of Fama's central papers. Many are classics, including his now-famous essay on efficient capital markets. Others, though less famous, are even better statements of the central ideas. Fama's research considers key questions in finance, both as an academic field and an industry: How is information reflected in asset prices? What is the nature of risk that scares people away from larger returns? Does lots of buying and selling by active managers produce value for their clients? The Fama Portfolio provides for the first time a comprehensive collection of his work and includes introductions and commentary by the book's editors, John H. Cochrane and Tobias Moskowitz, as well as by Fama's colleagues, themselves top scholars and successful practitioners in finance. These essays emphasize how the ideas presented in Fama's papers have influenced later thinking in financial economics, often for decades.

  • The myth of independence : how Congress governs the Federal Reserve / Sarah Binder, Mark Spindel
    HG 2565 B56 2017

    Born out of crisis a century ago, the Federal Reserve has become the most powerful macroeconomic policymaker and financial regulator in the world. The Myth of Independence traces the Fed's transformation from a weak, secretive, and decentralized institution in 1913 to a remarkably transparent central bank a century later. Offering a unique account of Congress's role in steering this evolution, Sarah Binder and Mark Spindel explore the Fed's past, present, and future and challenge the myth of its independence.

    Binder and Spindel argue that recurring cycles of crisis, blame, and reform propelled lawmakers to create and revamp the powers and governance of the Fed at critical junctures, including the Panic of 1907, the Great Depression, the postwar Treasury-Fed Accord, the inflationary episode of the 1970s, and the recent financial crisis. Marshaling archival sources, interviews, and statistical analyses, the authors pinpoint political and economic dynamics that shaped interactions between the legislature and the Fed, and that have generated a far stronger central bank than anticipated at its founding. The Fed today retains its unique federal style, diluting the ability of lawmakers and the president to completely centralize control of monetary policy.

    In the long wake of the financial crisis, with economic prospects decidedly subpar, partisan rivals in Congress seem poised to continue battling over the Fed's statutory mandates and the powers given to achieve them. Examining the interdependent relationship between America's Congress and its central bank, The Myth of Independence presents critical insights about the future of monetary and fiscal policies that drive the nation's economy.

  • How to trade in stocks : the Livermore formula for combining time element and price / Jesse L. Livermore
    HG 6016 L55 2017

    Exact Facsimile of 1940 Edition. All 16 Color charts reproduced in color. Livermore was one of the greatest traders of all time. At his peak in 1929, Jesse Livermore was worth $100 million. In late 1939, Livermore's son, Jesse Jr., suggested to his father that he write a book about his experiences and techniques in trading in the stock and commodity markets. The book was completed and published by Duell, Sloan and Pearce in March 1940. His methods were still new and controversial at the time, and they received mixed reviews from stock market gurus of the period. How to Trade Stocks offered traders their first account of that famously tight-lipped operator's trading system. Written in Livermore's inimitable, no-nonsense style, it interweaves fascinating autobiographical and historical details with step-by-step guidance on:

    Reading market and stock behaviors

    Analyzing leading sectors

    Market timing

    Money management

    Notable Quote: "The game of speculation is the most uniformly fascinating game in the world. But it is not a game for the stupid, the mentally lazy, the person of inferior emotional balance, or the get-rich-quick adventurer. They will die poor."

  • Tape reading and market tactics : the three steps to successful stock trading / by Humphrey B. Neill
    HG 6015 N42 2010
    2010 Reprint of 1931 Edition. In this 1931 Wall Street classic Neill explains not only how to read the tape, but also how to figure out what's going on behind the numbers. Full of graphs and charts, it contains excellent sections on human nature and speculation. Though first published in 1931, this work remains a classic text in the field, and greatly influence Nicholar Darvas, a later Wall Street Guru. Neill advised that the investor not follow the general public and he himself was very wary of the crowd mentality. Neill's philosophy pushes the reader to study hard and pay ones' dues. He insists that the successful trader is an educated entrepreneur; one who can make reasoned decisions based on the movements of price and volume.

    Reading market and stock behaviors Analyzing leading sectors Market timing Money management Emotional control

  • Rational investing : the subtleties of asset management / Hugues Langlois and Jacques Lussier
    HG 4529.5 L366 2017
    Many investors believe that success in investing is either luck or clairvoyance. In Rational Investing , finance professor Hugues Langlois and asset manager Jacques Lussier present the current state of asset management and clarify the conundrum of luck versus skill. The core of Rational Investing is a framework for smart investing built around three performance drivers: balancing exposure to risk factors, efficiently diversifying bad luck, and taking advantage of relative mispricings in financial markets. With clear examples from model multi-asset-class portfolios, Langlois and Lussier show how to implement performance drivers like institutional investors with access to extensive resources, as well as nonprofessional investors who are constrained to small-scale transactions. There are few investment products, whether traditional or alternative, discretionary or systematic, fundamental or quantitative, whose performance cannot be analyzed through this framework. Langlois and Lussier illuminate the structure of financial markets and the mechanics of sustainable investing so any investor can become a rational player, from the nonprofessional investor with a basic knowledge of statistics all the way to seasoned investment professionals wishing to challenge their understanding of the asset management industry.

  • Reframing finance : new models of long-term investment management / Ashby Monk, Rajiv Sharma, Duncan L. Sinclair
    HG 4521 M765 2017

    Since the 2008 financial crisis, beneficiary organizations--like pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, endowments, and foundations--have been seeking ways to mitigate the risk of their investments and make better financial decisions. For them, Reframing Finance offers a path forward.

    This book argues that institutional investors would better serve their long-term goals by putting money into large-scale, future-facing projects such as infrastructure, green energy, innovation in agriculture, and real estate development. At the same time, redirecting long-term investments would close significant financial gaps that government cannot. Drawing on key contributions in economic sociology, social network theory, and economics, the book conceptualizes a collaborative model of investment that is already becoming increasingly common: Large investors contribute more directly to private market assets, while financial intermediaries seek to foster co-investment partnerships, better aligning incentives for all. A combination of rich case studies and rigorous theory enables asset owners to move toward more efficient, private-market investing, while also laying groundwork for research at the frontier of finance.

  • Finance at work / edited by Valérie Boussard
    HG 101 F545 2017

    In the collective psyche, a financier is a capitalist. In managerial capitalism, the notion of the #65533;manager#65533; emerged, and the role of the manager was distinct from the role of the #65533;owner#65533;. Financial capitalism is similarly underpinned by financiers who are not the holders of the financial assets they buy, sell, trade or advise upon.

    Finance at Work explores the world of financiers, be they finance-oriented CEOs, CFOs, financial journalists, mergers and acquisitions#65533; advisors or wealth managers. The first part investigates the professional trajectories of members of corporate boards and financialisation as the dissemination of financial logic outside its primary #65533;iron cage#65533;; Part II responds by studying financiers at work within financial occupations or financial operations involving external actors; while the third section pursues the issue of financial boundaries by seeking out the way financial logic crosses these boundaries. Part III takes back the hypothesis of differentiations within finance presented in Part I, and analyses the internal boundaries of asset management, wealth management and leveraged buy-out (LBO) acquisitions.

    This book is essential reading for researchers and academics within the field of finance who aim to understand the #65533;spread of finance#65533; in contemporary societies.

  • Women and microfinance : prospects and challenges / Amit Kumar
    HG 178.33 I4 A485 2015
    Microfinance has been widely recognized today as an effective tool in combating poverty and empowering the world's marginalized populations. Case studies have highlighted its potential role in creating social capital and advancing human development. Women throughout the world contribute to the economic growth and sustainable livelihoods of their families and communities. In India, many of the microfinance programs target women - the most vulnerable segment of the society. This book investigates the relationship between microfinance and women in Rajasthan. Rajasthan, a predominately feudal society in India, is a relatively backward state with respect to microfinance movement. Low literacy rates among women, sparsely distributed population in hamlets in far-off villages, a well-established caste system - all these combine to give a very different flavor to the whole microfinance movement in Rajasthan. The book not only examines women empowerment and income earning opportunities, but management, livelihood skills, sustainability, and social acceptance of the whole movement.

  • Deliberating American monetary policy : a textual analysis / Cheryl Schonhardt-Bailey ; with assistance and advice from Andrew Bailey
    HG 540 S36 2013

    A systematic analysis of Federal Reserve and congressional deliberations on monetary policy, drawing on textual analysis software and in-depth interviews with participants.

    American monetary policy is formulated by the Federal Reserve and overseen by Congress. Both policy making and oversight are deliberative processes, although the effect of this deliberation has been difficult to quantify. In this book, Cheryl Schonhardt-Bailey provides a systematic examination of deliberation on monetary policy from 1976 to 2008 by the Federal Reserve's Open Market Committee (FOMC) and House and Senate banking committees. Her innovative account employs automated textual analysis software to study the verbatim transcripts of FOMC meetings and congressional hearings; these empirical data are supplemented and supported by in-depth interviews with participants in these deliberations. The automated textual analysis measures the characteristic words, phrases, and arguments of committee members; the interviews offer a way to gauge the extent to which the empirical findings accord with the participants' personal experiences.

    Analyzing why and under what conditions deliberation matters for monetary policy, the author identifies several strategies of persuasion used by FOMC members, including Paul Volcker's emphasis on policy credibility and efforts to influence economic expectations. Members of Congress, however, constrained by political considerations, show a relative passivity on the details of monetary policy.
