New Directions in Finance

Edited By Dilip K. Ghosh, Shahriar Khaksari Copyright 1995

    The stock market crash of 1987 had a tumultuous effect on the world of finance. The reverberations of this collapse are still being felt and a number of issues and problems are still unresolved. New Directions in Finance discusses these issues and looks to future developments in international finance.

    The book contains sections which look at capital structure; the cost of capital and agency issues; mergers and takeovers, and options, futures and forward trading. Including a contribution by Nobel Laureate Merton Miller, New Directions in Finance presents a state of the art guide to international finance.
