Food And Wine Events In Europe

RRP $451.99

Food and wine events have gained popularity internationally. Their importance in local economic development has grown, especially in Europe, as they are seen as a source of income for local economic systems, a way for creating new job positions and effective tools for promoting and increasing typical product awareness and demand.

This book for the first time illustrates the positive and negative impacts of food and wine events from a stakeholder perspective by highlighting several critical aspects such as: (1) advantages and disadvantages of food and wine events; (2) best practice adoption for maximising benefits flowing from event creation; (3) community involvement and knowledge diffusion; (4) effectiveness in promoting local products and creating consumer awareness about products; (5) factors that promote or inhibit the success or achievements of wine and food events. Although the volume primarily focuses on events in Europe, comparisons are made to other regions in the world. Case studies are integrated throughout to illustrate the system of economic and social impacts linked to food and wine events, as well as best practices to achieve effective event management and maximize expected results.

Written by leading academics, this timely and important volume will be valuable reading for all students, researchers and academics interested in Events, Tourism, Hospitality, Gastronomy and Development Studies.

Extreme Events In Finance

RRP $329.99

A guide to the growing importance of extreme value risk theory, methods, and applications in the financial sector

Presenting a uniquely accessible guide, Extreme Events in Finance: A Handbook of Extreme Value Theory and Its Applications features a combination of the theory, methods, and applications of extreme value theory (EVT) in finance and a practical understanding of market behavior including both ordinary and extraordinary conditions.

Beginning with a fascinating history of EVTs and financial modeling, the handbook introduces the historical implications that resulted in the applications and then clearly examines the fundamental results of EVT in finance. After dealing with these theoretical results, the handbook focuses on the EVT methods critical for data analysis. Finally, the handbook features the practical applications and techniques and how these can be implemented in financial markets. Extreme Events in Finance: A Handbook of Extreme Value Theory and Its Applications includes:

• Over 40 contributions from international experts in the areas of finance, statistics, economics, business, insurance, and risk management

• Topical discussions on univariate and multivariate case extremes as well as regulation in financial markets

• Extensive references in order to provide readers with resources for further study

• Discussions on using R packages to compute the value of risk and related quantities

The book is a valuable reference for practitioners in financial markets such as financial institutions, investment funds, and corporate treasuries, financial engineers, quantitative analysts, regulators, risk managers, large-scale consultancy groups, and insurers. Extreme Events in Finance: A Handbook of Extreme Value Theory and Its Applications is also a useful textbook for postgraduate courses on the methodology of EVTs in finance.

They therefore decided on having only one court, which they denominated tue circuit court for the District of Columbia. But still they krpi up the distinction between federal judicial power--and municipal, or quasi 6title judicial power--although they conferred boili kiiul of power on the name court. Thus, in the first section they enacted that the laws of the state of Virginia should continue to be the law of one pttrt of the diaIricl, and the law of Maryland of the other. Previously thereto, the constitution nnd the laws of tht: United Slates had disrobed the Plates of Maryland and Virginia, as well as tliu other state, of all thoae powers which had been conferred on congres--and ij'nl diaruhed the courts of those statin of all those judicial powers, which had been conlerred exclusively on the federal tribunals. What lawn of Virginia and Maryland were thus de clared to he in force in the District of Columbia? They were the municipal law of those states--the laws founded upon the reserved right of thnie states. Amonysi those laws ot Viruinia and Maryland which arc thus continued in force in the district, I will ask, whether there were any which authorised the pro cess of the courts of the one (o run into, and in be exercised in the oilier? Very far from it. On the contrary, it was a fixed principle of those laws, that the process of their courts could not tttue beyond their territory.
