How should policy analysts assess -benefit validity- when
behavioral anomalies appear relevant? The author provides
thoughtful answers through practical guidelines. This
book introduces the concept of benefit validity as a
criterion for estimating benefits from observed or stated
preference studies, and provides practical guidelines to
help analysts accommodate behavioral findings. It
considers benefit validity in four areas: violations of
expected utility theory, unexpectedly large differences
between willingness to pay and willingness to accept, on
exponential discounting, and harmful addiction. In
addition to its immediate value to practicing policy
analysts, it helps behavioral economists identify issues
where their research programs can make practical
contributions to better policy analysis.

An important literature on comparative long-run economic
growth focuses on financial development. This work in
economic history strongly complements the extensive
empirical research by King and Levine (1993) and many
others who have established a strong connection between
financial development and subsequent economic growth.
Rousseau and Sylla (2003) develop the concept of
financial revolutions. They argue based on the history of
the Netherlands, Great Britain, the United States,
France, Germany and Japan, that these countries grew
rapidly after financial revolutions which created "good"
financial systems. Such systems have five key components:
sound public finance and public debt management, a stable
monetary regime, a banking system, a central bank, and
well- functioning securities markets.

The Economics of continuous-time finance / Bernard Dumas
and Elisa Luciano.-- Cambridge: MIT Press, 2017.
xviii,621 p., 24 cm.
ISBN : 9780262036542.
332.01519233 DUM 146320
This book introduces the economic applications of the
theory of continuous-time finance, with the goal of
enabling the construction of realistic models,
particularly those involving incomplete markets. Indeed,
most recent applications of continuous-time finance aim
to capture the imperfections and dysfunctions of
financial markets characteristics that became especially
apparent during the market turmoil that started in 2008.
The book begins by using discrete time to illustrate the
basic mechanisms and introduce such notions as
completeness, redundant pricing, and no arbitrage. It
develops the continuous-time analog of those mechanisms
and introduces the powerful tools of stochastic calculus.
Going beyond other textbooks, the book then focuses on
the study of markets in which some form of
incompleteness, volatility, heterogeneity, friction, or
behavioral subtlety arises.

This book offers the first comprehensive treatment of
policy measures intended to help emerging markets contend
with large and volatile capital flows. The authors, all
IMF experts, explain that, in the spirit of
liberalization and deregulation in the 1980s and 1990s,
many emerging market governments eliminated capital
inflow controls along with outflow controls. By 2012,
however, capital inflow controls were again acknowledged
as legitimate policy tools. Focusing on the macroeconomic
and financial-stability risks associated with capital
flows, the authors combine theoretical and empirical
analysis to consider the interaction between monetary,
exchange rate, macro prudential, and capital control
policies to mitigate these risks.

The central issue of this book is how to use standard-
based strategies efficiently in the "controlling v.
minority shareholder" context. A standard-based strategy
has two core elements - a preset standard and ex post
adjudication. To reach an optimal efficiency, both
elements need to balance between costs and benefits
carefully. When and how the standard should be enforced
by court is the second question that is critical to the
efficacy of a standard-based strategy.
