Forecasting exchange rates is a variable that preoccupies economists, businesses and governments, being more critical to more people than any other variable. In Exchange Rate Forecasting the author sets out to provide a concise survey of the techniques of forecasting - bringing together the various forecasting methods and applying them to the exchange rate in a highly accessible and readable manner. Highly practical in approach, the book provides an understanding of the techniques of forecasting with an emphasis on its applications and use in business decision-making, such as hedging, speculation, investment, financing and capital budgeting. In addition, the author also considers recent developments in the field, notably neural networks and chaos, again, with easy-to-understand explanations of these "rocket science" areas. The practical approach to forecasting is also reflected in the number of examples that pepper the text, whilst descriptions of some of the software packages that are used in practice to generate forecasts are also provided.
At the foundation of today's leading-edge manufacturing companies is a common vision for virtual, distributed enterprise in an agile environment where organizations can swiftly and cost-effectively bring products from concept to production - and respond dynamically to changes in customer and market requirements. Totally Integrated Enterprises: A Framework and Methodology for Business and Technology Improvement provides a framework and a methodology for understanding and mapping current enterprise configurations as well as for designing the revised architecture needed for the totally integrated enterprise. It also helps you select the MRPII, MES, APS, SCM, or ERP software most appropriate for your needs and for achieving total enterprise integration.
Acquisitions and mergers have left many enterprises with a legacy of varied cultures, resources, and processes that must be reshaped into a single, integrated whole. Increasing pressures from global competition force enterprises to become cost-effective, high-quality providers to traditional customers and push them to develop new markets and product lines. Nearly every enterprise needs to make the transition to a globally interdependent business paradigm. Totally Integrated Enterprises: A Framework and Methodology for Business and Technology Improvement gives you the key definitions that allow you to understand and communicate with vendors, consultants, and experts in the field. Using the techniques in this book you will see the results so often promised - but not realized - from technology.
This book argues with facts and figures that a small group of New York banks, by means of term loans and working in close collaboration with their affiliated life insurance companies, exerted a strong influence over the supply of money and credit, and thus over the economy, throughout the years of the Depression. This study analyzes the growth of term loan under the depression, the concentration of the loans in a handful of powerful New York banks, the interplay between these banks and large life insurance companies in the capital market, and the resulting economic consequences. It also details the changes that took place in the leadership within the financial hierarchy during the depression: the J.D. Rockefeller interests replaced the Morgan-First National interests as the country's dominant financial power- a change that has escaped previous scholarly notice.
Reflecting the sustained and diverse experimental momentum in the field of ion exchange, Volume 16 summarizes revolutionary advances on par with the consistently high-level research related by this series. This text discusses the kinetics, theoretical models, experimental results/supporting data, and applications for isothermal supersaturation, metal separation via pH-induced parametric pumping, and for ultrapure water (UPW). Topics also include the engineering of activated carbons and carbonaceous materials for removal of metal ions; hydrophobic ionizable organic compounds (HIOCs); the sorption/desorption mechanisms of organic micropollutants in water; and ion exchange process variables on perchlorate treatment.
Meredith Nicholson (1866-1947) was an American author, diplomat, and lecturer. He worked from 1885-1897 for the Indianapolis News. His first novel was Short Flights (1891) and his last was The Cavalier of Tennessee in 1928, which included both prose and poetry.
