The fat tail: the power of political knowledge for strategic investing

by Bremmer, Ian; Keat, Preston.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookCall number: E13 68 Publisher: USA: 2009Description: 254.ISBN: 9780195328554.Summary: This book both identifies the wide range of political risks that global firms face and shows investors how to effectively manage them. It reveals that while the world remains exceedingly risky for businesses, it is by no means incomprehensible. Political risk is unpredictable, but it is easier to analyze and manage than most people think. Applying the lessons of world history, the authors survey a vast range of contemporary risky situations, from stable markets like the United States or Japan, where politically driven regulation can still dramatically effect business, to more precarious places like Iran, China, Russia, Turkey, Mexico, and Nigeria, where private property is less secure and energy politics sparks constant volatility. The book sheds light on a wide array of political risks--risks that stem from great power rivalries, terrorist groups, government takeover of private property, weak leaders and internal strife, and even the black swans that defy prediction. But more importantly, the authors provide unique methods, tools, and concepts to help corporations, money managers, and policy makers understand political risk, showing when and how political risk analysis works--and when it does not.Subject(s): INVERSIONES | RIESGO | TOMA DE DECISIONES | GESTION | ADMINISTRACION | | | | | | INVESTISSEMENT | RISQUE | PRISE DE DECISION | GESTION | ADMINISTRATION | RISK MANAGEMENT-POLITICAL ASPECTS | INVESTMENTS-POLITICAL ASPECTS | COUNTRY RISK-MANAGEMENT | POLITICAL STABILITY-EVALUATION
