De uitdagingen kennen we: opwarming, milieu, schaarste en migratie. Het herstel uit de covid-crisis komt er bij. De fiscus als dragende financiële constructie van onze rechtstaat moet die ontwikkelingen kunnen dragen en het huis steunen waar ieder zich thuis voelt; een huis dat toekomst heeft.
Maar is de fiscus daartoe uitgerust? Redelijk Aandeel doet verslag van een onderzoek om die fiscus in beeld te krijgen en komt met concrete, realistische voorstellen. Het is geschreven voor iedereen die belangstelling heeft voor de maatschappelijke actualiteit.

INTRODUCTION TO FINANCIAL DERIVATIVES

Modeling, Pricing and Hedging

J.M. Schumacher

ISBN: 978-94-6240-611-7 (interactive pdf)

ISBN: 978-94-6240-612-4 (paperback version)

DOI: 10.26116/OpenPressTiU-Schumacher-04-2020

 

Financial derivatives are widely used as instruments to modify exposures to various types of financial risk. Examples include call options on a stock index, interest rate derivatives such as swaptions, and credit derivatives. The theory of financial derivatives, as it has been developed in recent decades, is based on a mix of economic ideas and concepts from mathematics.


The material in this Open Press textbook originates from notes for a course that the author has taught at Tilburg University for more than ten years, as part of the MSc program in Quantitative Finance and Actuarial Science. The text aims to provide students with an introduction to continuous-time models that are used to analyze derivative contracts in finance and insurance. Users are expected to have a solid background in standard calculus, linear algebra, and probability; prior experience with stochastic calculus, however, is not a prerequisite.

EVIDENCE BASED HRM

What (do) we know about people in the workplace?

Brigitte Kroon

ISBN: 978-94-6240-623-0 (interactive pdf)

ISBN: 978-94-6240-624-7 (paperback version)

DOI: 10.26116/OpenPressTiU-Kroon-01-2020

 

Human Resource Management is about managing the labor side of organizations. As labor resides in people, managing labor involves managing people. Because people can think and act in response to management, effective management of people involves a good understanding of psychology, sociology, laws, and economics. Any person in a managerial position should therefore have some basic understanding of human resource management. However, since not every organization is the same, and because the challenges that organizations face are different, there is no ‘one best practice suits all’ recipe for doing HRM. Hence, organizations need people who know where to find the best HRM interventions for the issues that they face.

SENSING THE RISK

A CASE FOR INTEGRATING CITIZEN SENSING INTO RISK GOVERNANCE

An accessible ‘toolbox’ for interested citizen science communities and policy-makers wishing to integrate citizen-sensed data into risk governance.

Anna Berti Suman

ISBN: 978-94-6240-630-8 (Interactive PDF)

ISBN: 978-94-6240-631-5 (Paperback)

 

‘Citizen sensing’, framed as grassroots-driven monitoring initiatives based on sensor technology, is increasingly entering the debate on environmental risk governance.  Although through a possible initial conflict, citizen sensing may ultimately have the potential to contribute to institutional risk governance. Building on previous empirical research based on a combination ofmethods, including ethnographical research, descriptive analysis and fuzzy-set Qualitative Comparative Analysis, Berti Suman designs an accessible ‘toolbox’ for interested communities, policy-makers and researchers that wish to shape citizen sensing initiatives in a way to contribute to risk governance.
