Human Privacy in Virtual and Physical Worlds: Multidisciplinary Perspectives

Human Privacy in Virtual and Physical Worlds: Multidisciplinary Perspectives by Mary C. Lacity, Lynda Coon
English | PDF EPUB (True) | 2024 | 283 Pages | ISBN : 3031510623 | 15.2 MB

This book is premised on the belief that understanding and protecting privacy requires a multidisciplinary approach. The editors of this contributed book believe that privacy is a ‘wicked problem’ because of its social complexity. In the modern world, political, social, and technological structures increasingly violate human privacy in physical and virtual spaces. Our behaviors are surveilled, captured, and monetized—often without our knowledge. Contributors are experts from diverse fields, including anthropology, architecture, data science, engineering, history, information systems, library sciences, medicine, philosophy, and supply chain management, each writing for an explicitly interdisciplinary readership.

Climate Change and Finance: Navigating the Challenges and Opportunities in Capital Markets

Climate Change and Finance: Navigating the Challenges and Opportunities in Capital Markets by Nader Naifar
English | PDF EPUB (True) | 2024 | 359 Pages | ISBN : 3031564189 | 27.6 MB

Financial markets play a critical role in climate finance as they are a major source of funding for many of the projects and initiatives aimed at addressing climate change. For instance, banks and investors can provide loans and capital to companies that are developing renewable energy projects, building energy-efficient infrastructure, or implementing climate-smart agricultural practices. Moreover, the importance of climate finance in financial markets goes beyond just funding environmental initiatives. Investors and financial institutions are increasingly factoring in climate risks and opportunities into their decision-making processes, including assessing the financial risks posed by climate change and the potential impact of new regulations and policies aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Systemic Financial Risk: An Emerging Market Perspective

Systemic Financial Risk: An Emerging Market Perspective by Alexander Karminsky, Mikhail Stolbov
English | PDF EPUB (True) | 2024 | 347 Pages | ISBN : 3031548086 | 25.2 MB

This book provides an analysis of various sources and forms of systemic financial risk. It focuses on the most pressing research questions for both advanced and emerging market economies, including green finance, ESG agenda and related risks, international financial connectivity across countries and financial institutions, and catastrophic risks modeling. Part 1 considers emerging research issues in risk assessment and management, including new approaches to measuring financial development, trends and prospects of green finance, and cross-country financial spillovers. Part 2 casts a more nuanced look at the quantitative models and methods adopted in risk assessment and risk management, putting such issues as measuring catastrophic risks, liquidity mismatches as well as modeling probabilities of default and the impact of macroeconomic fundamentals on capital adequacy ratios in the Russian banking sector in the spotlight. Finally, Part 3 discusses the new regulatory challenges dealingwith risk assessment and risk management, such as macroprudential policies which have proved efficient to mitigate systemic risk are investigated.
