Measuring Political Risk from the Author: Charlotte H. Brink. Offering a fresh, transparent approach encompassing new material, this invigorating volume measures political risk - for instance the risk that foreign investment might face in any country. It also demonstrates how progress or regress made in good governance initiatives as conditionalities to aid can be assessed. Governments can monitor their own policy environment(s), and take remedial action if necessary. The methodology allows for measurement of previously un-quantified 'soft' factors that add to the risks foreign investors might face, demonstrating why these factors are of importance to both risk assertive and risk averse investors. Features include: - 103 contextualized, measurable risk factors and their 411 risk factor indicators. - Guidelines to using these factors in order to perform generic macro analyses, or micro, client/project/industry-specific analyses. - Explanation of the methodology with which to comprehensively measure the probability of risk occurring in any macro or micro investment climate.

Transparency And Authoritarian Rule In Southeast Asia from the Author: Garry Rodan. In Transparency and Authoritarian Rule in Southeast Asia, Rodan rejects the notion that the 1997-98 Asian economic crisis was further evidence that ultimately capitalism can only develop within liberal social and political institutions, and that new technology necessarily undermines authoritarian control. Instead, Rodan argues that in Singapore and Malaysia external pressures for transparency reform were, and are, in many respects, being met without serious compromise to authoritarian rule or the sanctioning of media freedom.

Consumer Behaviour In Asia from the Author: Hellmut Schütte. Success in the Asian market is crucial to many firms. Yet many marketing strategies are based on a 'western' perspective of what consumers want and respond to. In Consumer Behaviour in Asia , the authors argue that Asian culture is so fundamentally different to Western Culture that existing consumer behaviour concepts cannot be applied to Asian consumers. In this book the authors outline and explain these differences and put forward modifications to many well-known consumer behaviour concepts. Consumer Behaviour in Asia shows how firms need to modify their marketing strategies in such areas as segmentation, positioning and the marketing mix in order to successfully penetrate these markets.
