International Financial Economics: Corporate Decisions in Global Markets 2e applies principles and theory of financial economics to international corporate finance decisions. After a section on exchange rates, the second section of the text looks at a firm's foreign exchange exposure measurement and hedging in depth. Attention is paid to the connection between foreign exchange exposure in profit and the foreign exchange exposure in equity. The impact of foreign currency debt and currency swaps is emphasised. The third and final section of the text examines overseas investment decisions in both developed countries that are integrated with the global financial market and emerging countries that are still somewhat segmented. Measurement of the cost of capital for overseas investments is emphasised, as is the accounting for overseas investments and hedging of foreign exchange risk.Contents:I. Foreign Exchange Rates1.
