Theme: New Directions in Modeling International Finance
This special issue of Research in International Business and Finance will bring diverse perspectives on the failures of modern finance theory with a view to proposing constructive, but more importantly, practical, innovations in theory and practice. The special issue will focus on rigorous mathematical/statistical/computational advances in the modeling of the topics identified by authors.
In particular, areas to be explored are
• Macro-prudential regulation,
• Extensions, new constructions, and/or destructions of modern finance theory
• Frontiers of empirical finance
Symposium. The special issue will be preceded by a symposium in November 24 and 25, 2011 on the same topic in Dromoland Castle, Ireland. 6 weeks afterward, all papers will be submitted to RIBAF electronically. Papers to be published in the special issue of RIBAF must be presented at the symposium.
Edited Book. Expanded versions of selected articles will be used to form the basis for an edited book within the Routledge Advances Series on Experimental and Computable Economics.
