Abstract

In recent years, the European Commission has attached increasing importance to the use of financial engineering instruments rather than traditional grant-based financing for the microcredit sector, considering these to be the most efficient option available.This book presents a study of capacity building and structural funds in public managing authorities for the microcredit sector. It presents two surveys to highlight the strengths and weaknesses of the managing authorities' capacity building. The first survey investigates the authorities' need for and interests in capacity building activities, assessing the areas in which capacity building support is needed, and explores the different types of support offered. The second survey analyses the results of the microcredit and microfinance programming activity, investigating its target groups and other operational features. It examines the key monitoring and reporting issues involved in this activity, before analysing the regulatory framework of the microcredit and microfinance sector.This book presents an in-depth analysis of structural funds and their management by policy-makers in the European convergence regions. It explores the interests of managing authorities, microcredit institutions, operators and other financial intermediaries involved in microcredit programming activities, and offers some core strategic and operational recommendations for the use of structural funds in the microcredit sector.

Abstract

La trajectoire de Wilfrid Baumgartner tout au long du XXe siècle a été celle d'un financier, au double sens que le mot a hérité de l'Ancien Régime : technicien des choses de l'argent et serviteur de la chose publique. Inspecteur des Finances, directeur du Trésor, gouverneur de la Banque de France, ministre des Finances, président de Rhône-Poulenc, le cas Baumgartner éclaire pour la première fois à cette échelle biographique la figure du grand commis à la française, de la crise de la Ille République aux années sombres de Vichy, de l'instabilité politique de la IVE' République aux ruptures du régime gaulliste. Cette étonnante continuité de l'homme est aussi celle de l'État en France dans la période. Elle est analysée ici à travers les profondes mutations qu'a connues, des années 1920 aux années 1970, le système financier français (monnaie, Trésor, banques et crédit), tant du point de vue des modalités changeantes du financement de l'activité économique que de celui de la place et du rôle de la France dans le système monétaire international, notamment dans le contexte de la construction européenne. Une hypothèse à visée globale sous-tend cette traversée de l'histoire de la France contemporaine : celle de l'institution par étapes, flux et reflux, d'une économie d'endettement en France, clef d'un certain modèle économique (et social) qui aura marqué en profondeur le siècle passé. « Un homme d'État... Non ! Un homme de l'État. Cette formule de l'auteur, bien venue, situe tout à la fois la personnalité de Baumgartner et son aura, avec les questions originales qu'elles nous posent » Jean-Noël Jeanneney.

Abstract

This book is open access under a CC BY licence. Recent reductions in public funding for audiovisual products have led to dramatic changes in the industry. The lack of interaction between the industry and capital markets has made sourcing funds for audiovisual products especially difficult.This book explains why the distance between the audiovisual and financial markets exists, and considers the perspective of both audiovisual companies and financial intermediaries. Providing a thorough overview of the audiovisual industry in three major categories (television, cinema and web), it analyses the financing behind each. The author adapts the traditional assessment methods to include exploitation rights, distribution deals and risk determinants ; he also proposes a pricing model for the audiovisual products demonstrating that prices and values in a industry of prototype goods do not depend solely on cost and revenue. The book also includes a methodology for analysing the economics of the sector, the different sales agreements between broadcasters and the distribution deals between distributors and independent producers. Finally, a description of the main financial products for private finance is provided, as well as an explanation of how public funds can act as leverage to catalyze private resources through the use of guarantee funds. In The Economics of the Audiovisual Industry the author suggests that rather than relying on subsidized public support, the audiovisual industry should foster private-public partnerships and market dynamics to promote an alternative funding model based on a profitable and long-lasting connection between the audiovisual and financial markets. The valuation model, both for products and firms, proposed in this book are at the basis of this new approach.

Abstract

This open access textbook is the first to provide Business and Economics Ph.D. students with a precise and intuitive introduction to the formal backgrounds of modern financial theory. It explains Brownian motion, random processes, measures, and Lebesgue integrals intuitively, but without sacrificing the necessary mathematical formalism, making them accessible for readers with little or no previous knowledge of the field. It also includes mathematical definitions and the hidden stories behind the terms discussing why the theories are presented in specific ways.

Abstract

L’ouvrage est articulé autour de deux pôles thématiques : les biens et l’argent. Il s’agit de rendre compte des processus de constitution de la valeur et d’observer surtout la dématérialisation qui y est de plus en plus intensément à l’œuvre. Le départ est pris dans un questionnement sur ce qu’est un bien (en soi, privé, public) pour aller vers ce qui en devient l’expression la plus générale et la mesure la plus mobile : l’argent. La généralisation de la valorisation monétaire fluidifie les c...

Abstract

The Asian financial crisis of 1997-98 shook the foundations of the global economy. What began as a localised currency crisis soon engulfed the entire Asian region. What went wrong and how did the Asian economies, long considered 'miracles', respond? How did the United States, Japan and other G-7 countries react to the crisis? What role did the IMF play? Why did China, which suffers from many of the same structural problems responsible for the crisis, remain conspicuously insulated from the turmoil raging in its midst? What explains Asia's remarkable recovery just three years after the crisis? In what fundamental ways did the Asian crisis serve as a catalyst to the current thinking about the 'new international financial architecture'? What lessons can be learnt from the crisis by other emerging economies? This book provides answers to all the above questions and more. It gives a comprehensive account of how the international economic order operates, examines its strengths and weaknesses, and what needs to be done to fix it. The book will be vital to students of economics, international political economy, Asian and development studies.

Abstract

Environmental finance, particularly energy efficiency and renewable energy (EERE) finance, can and should serve as an interface to other sub-sectors of financial sector promotion such as microfinance, housing finance or agricultural finance. For example, existing clients of financial institutions include small and medium-sized enterprises and households, and these are often suffering from high energy prices or have no access to sustainable energy supply. At the same time, these clients are vulnerable to extreme weather events, and often hit hardest by the impact of climate change. There are many other examples which show that the financial sector has an enormous potential to support “green” investments. In order to tap this potential on a sustainable basis, it is important to have a sound understanding which role financial institutions can and should play.This book provides a blend of well-founded professional and scientific perspectives on the potential of Environmental finance in developing and transition countries.
