This work is accompanied by a CD and gives you a unique stand-alone product which serves as a major reference guide on interest rate derivatives. The book itself is developed around a user-friendly excel based pricing system helping you to better understand the content by applying the theory to real life pricing. This allows you to use the book as an initial reference or learning tool to see how the maths work and leaves you with a practical calculation tool. Recommended for all financial and corporate treasury staff, MBA students, graduates and anyone looking for a mathematical guide to the practical pricing and modelling of interest rate derivatives.
In The Theory of Value, Capital and Interest, Branko Horvat puts forward a new economic theory, relevant to real-world economics. This radical and innovative book deals with the economy as a system which includes producers, consumers and a social regulating agency, rather than simply as an aggregate of individuals.
Modern adult life revolves around monumental purchases such as a house, a car, and a deluge of other items that almost universally require entering a formal interest bearing debt obligation. As such, understanding the governing mathematical equations that dictate these interest bearing debts is critical to a practical education. This book intends to provide a basic mathematical understanding of the underlying rules of interest bearing debt taking no prior understanding of mathematics for granted. This book is tailored to take the student all the way from addition to continuous compounding interest in the least painful and most efficient path possible. The mathematics of interest is not a hard subject and I prove this through an easy to read and obvious approach. I have written this book with the following type of reader in mind; The fresh on their own young adult entering a world of credit cards and student loans, The new home buyer bewildered by the fast and seemingly secret world of interest bearing loans, The debtor well above their head in obligations who would like to know why they never seem to pay off their debt by paying the minimum payment. It is my sincerest hope that this book helps you with your needs.
'There's our hut!' said the young hut-leader, pointing through iron palings at a couple of toy Noah's Arks built large. 'No-that's the nth Division's cinema. The Y.M.C.A. is the one beyond.' The enclosure behind the palings had been a parade-ground in piping times; and British squads, from the pink French barracks outside the gates, still drilled there between banks of sterilised rubbish and lagoons of unmedicated mud. The place was to become familiar to me under many aspects. I have known it more than presentable in a clean suit of snow, and really picturesque with a sharp moon cocked upon some towering trees, as yet strangely intact. It was at its best, perhaps, as a nocturne pricked out by a swarm of electric torches, going and coming along the duck-boards in a grand chain of sparks and flashes. But its true colours were the wet browns and drabs of that first glimpse in the December dusk, with the Ark hull down in the mud, and the cinema a sister ship across her bows.
This book comprises the first systematic study on the impact of ethnic interest groups on US foreign policy, using the case study of how the Cuban?American National Foundation (CANF) influenced the outcome of three different legislatives debates that directly affected US Cuba policy.
