Money & Risk Management, part 3
The only guide to understanding ethical challenges in engineering projects from both a technical and a social perspective What does it mean to be a "good" engineer, planner, or design professional in the ethical sense? Technical professionals must make daily decisions which impact upon the quality of life of those who live near the facilities, plants, structures, and thoroughfares they design, and in the cities and communities they plan and build. The questions of where these projects are built, who theyare to serve, and how they will affect those who live near them are at the heart of Socially Responsible Engineering. Written from the perspective of the engineer, this new resource from two leading engineering authors is essential to professionals and students who must grapple with how solutions to engineering problems impact the people those solutions are meant to serve. The first book of its kind to focus on the environmental implications of engineering ethics...

Steven Roman. Introduction to the Mathematics of Finance: From Risk Management to Options Pricing (Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics)Publisher:
The Mathematics of Finance has become a hot topic ever since the discovery of the Black-Scholes option pricing formulas in 1973. Unfortunately, there are very few undergraduate textbooks in this area. This book is specifically written for advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate students in mathematics, finance or economics. With the exception of an optional chapter on the Capital Asset Pricing Model, the book concentrates on discrete derivative pricing models, culminating in a careful and complete derivation of the Black-Scholes option pricing formulas as a limiting case of the Cox-Ross-Rubinstein discrete model. The final chapter is devoted to American options. The mathematics is not watered down, but is appropriate for the intended audience. No measure theory is used, and only a small amount of linear algebra is required. All necessary probability theory is developed throughout the book on a "need-to-know" basis. No background in finance is required, since the book...

Ruth Taplin. Risk Management and Innovation in Japan, Britain and the USA (Routledge Studies in the Growth Economies of Asia 1)Publisher:
Assessing and managing risk is vitally important, and is increasingly studied, in a range of areas, including politics and international relations, finance and insurance, and innovation and valuing intangible assets such as patents and intellectual property.

Dale Neef. Managing Corporate Reputation and Risk : A Strategic Approach Using Knowledge ManagementPublisher:
Book DescriptionWith the collapse of high-profile companies such as Enron and Tyco, worldwide anti-globalization protests, and recent revelations of questionable behavior by financial groups and auditors, corporate behavior has become the highest priority topic for businesspeople, investors, politicians and the public.

Most corporations officially embrace the concept of Corporate Social Responsibility; but giving money away to local communities or worthy causes will not prevent an ethical disaster. The problem is not social irresponsibility; the problem is a lack of knowledge about what is taking place in the company or at its subcontractor sites. What companies need to be thinking about is not a theoretical construct around Corporate Social...
