Description - The Finance and the Economics of Uncertainty by Gabrielle Demange
Finance and the Economics of Uncertainty explores the growing range of economic decisions that are conducted under uncertainty both on the personal level - with individual savings, insurance, portfolio choices - as well as by large firms including insurance companies, stock exchanges, and futures and derivatives assets that utilize financial tools to facilitate the exchange of risks. Presenting the basic principles and discussing them in a unified framework within elementary models, this text analyzes the allocation of risk in the context of the current literature, and emphasizes the role of information in decisions and prices. Including end-of-chapter exercises, this book provides students with a tool for understanding the theoretical analysis of decision-making under uncertainty, and its applications to the world of economics and finance.
