In this volume, what are thought to be some of the more important aspects of the Dodd–Frank Act are discussed from a number of perspectives, including that of industry scholars who have been actively involved in evaluating financial regulation, regulators who are responsible for implementing the reform, financial policy experts representing think tanks and banking trade associations, congressmen and congressional staff involved with developing the legislation, and legal scholars. The volume summarizes the act, evaluates how the new regulations are being implemented and how the implementation process is progressing, and discusses modifications that, in the views of the authors, might be needed to more effectively achieve the stated goals of the legislation.

Contingent Convertibles (CoCos) represent debt that is subject to being converted automatically into common equity under pre-specified terms of conversion if the chosen regulatory capital ratio falls to a level triggering conversion. CoCos are that subspecies of contingent capital that references regulatory (Basel III) concepts in its triggers. From 2014, trigger points are set by common equity (Common Equity Tier 1 [CET1]) in percent of risk-weighted assets [RWA] or of more complicated measures of total exposure to a variety of risks, particularly credit risk. This is the first comprehensive book on CoCos, an innovative instrument that has attracted growing attention since it was first issued in 2009. The book is mostly concerned with going-concern ‘recovery-’ rather than ‘resolution-’ CoCos, because avoiding failure and costly disruption of financial networks without government financing is the first order of business. CoCos hold a high promise of providing fully loss-absorbing equity capital when it is most needed and least available to financial institutions. Yet, having grown out of the 2007–2009 financial crisis, they are still an ‘infant’ reform instrument in many respects. Few of the instrument's design features (or even the rating, regulatory, and tax treatments) are entirely settled. This book seeks to move the discussion toward, and then past, the main decision points so that CoCos can prove their value for contingency planning and self-insurance all over the world. It is intended to increase the ability of issuers and investors to analyze and understand the different kinds of CoCos. Contents:Foundations:IntroductionOverview of Basel III Implementation Most Relevant for CocosCocos and the Struggle to Preserve Going-Concern ValueThe Treatment of TBTF Financial Institutions in the Last CrisisStrategic Policy Objectives in Privatizing the TBTF BackstopWhy Cocos?:High-Trigger Cocos Compared with Other Bailinable DebtSelf-Insurance with Cocos Compared to Common EquityAutomatic Cocos Conversion vs. Voluntary RestructuringReasons for Having Cocos Liabilities on the Balance SheetVarieties of Cocos Design and Rationales:Determining Conversion Price and Risk Premium in CocosWrite-Down-Only CocosActual or Prospective Recovery Rates from Converting CocosGovernment Capital Injections and Bailout CocosMisuses of Cocos in Government-Led Recapitalizations of BanksPolicy Choices and Essentials for Cocos' Success:The Tax Treatment of the Interest Paid on CocosMajor Credit Rating Agencies' Approaches to Rating CocosRegulatory Requirements at Cross-PurposesConclusions and Recommendations for Cocos Design and Evaluations Readership: Researchers in Banking, Finance, and Financial Service, Finance Professionals, Law Firms, Accounting, and Financial-Consulting Firms; Portfolio and Wealth Management Specialists; Fixed-Income Investors and Fund Managers; Government Regulators of Financial Services; Libraries and Members of Research and Capital Markets Divisions at National and International Financial Institutions. Key Features:First book in existence that is principally devoted to CoCos. The new instrument, by being triggered under Basel III rules to convert to common equity when needed to enhanceloss absorbency, could greatly strengthen self-insurance and self-discipline, especially of too-big-to-fail banking institutionsLack of standardization and regulatory uncertainty, including uncertainty about the tax treatment of interest paid on CoCos and about the extent to which they satisfy capital requirements, hinder the credit-rating and adoption of this vital reform instrument. The book explains these deficiencies and points the way to how they can be overcomeKeywords:Contingent Convertibles;CoCos;Financial Reform;Financial Crisis;Risk Management;Bank Capital;Financial Services;Fixed-Income Securities;Basel IIIReviews: “Specialists who focus on CoCos in some capacity should read this book. Anyone interested in a deeper dive into how markets and regulators deal with deteriorating financial institutions will find this book provides a useful on-the-ground view often missing from books covering financial crises. von Furstenberg has materially added to this important global discussion on how to promote financial stability. ” Global Credit Review

How do you gauge the accomplishments of policy and its failures? While a number of nations are successful in optimizing a socio-economic welfare function, others are woefully falling short of the optimal frontier. Diagnostics for a Globalized World proposes a reformulation of the inherited theory of economic and social policy (codified in the 1950s by Jan Tinbergen) to find a diagnostic tool in measuring the effectiveness of economic and social policy. Using a logarithmic adaptation of data envelopment analysis, the authors explain how to rank the attainment of nations of multidimensional goals such as those expressed by the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and upcoming Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As presented at the World Trade Organisation Public Forum 2015 (2nd October, 2015).

The field of marketing science has a rich history of modeling marketing phenomena using the disciplines of economics, statistics, operations research, and other related fields. Since it is roughly 50 years from its origins, The History of Marketing Science is a timely review of the accomplishments of marketing scientists in a number of research areas. Different research areas of marketing science, such as Pricing, Internet Marketing, Diffusion Models, and Advertising, are treated to a highly readable and easy-to-digest historical analysis by the contributing authors. Each chapter provides a chronological timeline of key historical developments in the area of marketing science covered. Readers of other disciplinary backgrounds outside of economics, statistics, and operations research will be more than able to appreciate the development of marketing science as a field of research and its pioneers through the book.

Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) is often overlooked in empirical work such as diagnostic tests to determine whether the data conform with technology which, in turn, is important in identifying technical change, or finding which types of DEA models allow data transformations, including dealing with ordinal data. Advances in Data Envelopment Analysis focuses on both theoretical developments and their applications into the measurement of productive efficiency and productivity growth, such as its application to the modelling of time substitution, i.e. the problem of how to allocate resources over time, and estimating the "value" of a Decision Making Unit (DMU).

The Guidelines for Consumer Protection in the Context of Electronic Commerce are designed to help ensure that consumers are no less protected when shopping on line than they are when they buy from their local store or order from a catalogue. By setting out the core characteristics of effective consumer protection for online business-to-consumer transactions, the Guidelines are intended to help eliminate some of the uncertainties that both consumers and businesses encounter when buying and selling on line. The Guidelines reflect existing legal protections available to consumers in more traditional forms of commerce. Their aim is to encourage: - fair business, advertising and marketing practices; - clear information about an online business's identity, the goods or services it offers and the terms and conditions of any transaction; - a transparent process for the confirmation of transactions; - secure payment mechanisms; - fair, timely and affordable dispute resolution and redress; - privacy protection; and - consumer and business education.
