RRP $35.00

Both economists and popular writers have once more run away with some fragments of reality they happened to grasp. Joseph A. Schumpeter, Capitalism, Socialism, and Democracy, 1942. 1. Rational Behaviour and Economics Never in the history of mankind has there been such unlimited belief intheabilitiesofthehumanmindasintheAgeofReasoninthe?rsthalf of the eighteenth century. The likes of Mozart, Goethe, and Rousseau ensured a new era of optimism and creativity in both the arts and the sciences. In mathematics, the theory of probability was re?ned and its laws were believed to be good descriptions of human reasoning and 1 decision making. The French Revolution was the logical conclusion of theAgeofReasonandEnlightenment. Italsobroughtaboutitspolitical and social downfall, ending in an age of terror; a victim of its own success. In the early nineteenth century, however, most ?elds of science abandoned many ideas from the era of Enlightenment. Nevertheless, in psychology and economics the probabilistic approach to describing a human being as a fully rational homo economicus remained popular as ever. 1 In Rousseau (1762, p. 97), for example, one ?nds: "Calculateurs, c'est maintenant votre a? aire; comptez, mesurez, comparez". 1 2 INVESTMENT, COALITION SPILLOVERS, AND EVOLUTION Most of contemporary economics still uses the axiom of rational e- nomic agents, where agents are believed to maximise expected utility. Expectations are often assumed to be based on objective probabilities. Expected utility with objective probabilities has been axiomatised by Von Neumann and Morgenstern (1944).


International Investment, Political Risk, And Dispute Resolution

RRP $291.95

An ideal practitioner's tool, this book clearly examines international law and provides practical steps that can be taken to minimize political risk and to deal with expropriation when it occurs. A systematic format covers relevant international law; defines political risk in general and in its most common forms; discusses available investment treaties and related mechanisms and institutions that might make a given developing country more attractive than another; considers pre-investment decisions that can reduce political risk, from ways to structure transactions to procuring investment insurance; and details the options open to an investor after an investment is affected.
International Investment, Political Risk, and Dispute Resolution provides a practical, sophisticated, and comprehensive discussion of all the relevant issues related to political risk:

A- The political risk of expropriation, both direct and indirect
A- Subtle yet nefarious forms of "indirect" and "creeping" expropriation that can be more difficult to prove, identify, quantify, and protect against
A- Protections available under international law to minimize such political risks
A- The role of bilateral investment treaties, government-sponsored and private investment insurance, and various provisions that may be utilized in investment agreements between the investor and the host state
A- Measures and steps that can be taken to reduce or respond to political risk, including the proper application of international arbitration
