Global edge Kurtzman, Joel Yago, Glenn McGraw-Hill 9781422103463 : With globalisation a reality, companies no. .But it contains hidden risks - and firms need strategies and tactics for recognising and managing those risks

But it contains hidden risks - and firms need strategies and tactics for recognising and managing those risks. This work offers two tools for better managing the hard-to-see perils of going global.

Now that globalization is a reality and cross-border is no longer a discretionary activity, companies need reliable tools to manage the risks associated with doing business around the world. This title is a relevant, practical addition to risk management literature. This book will help readers think about their global business differently, manage them effectively, and develop ways to forecast in which areas they might get into trouble. To support the book there will be an internet-based tool that offers up-to-date risk information by country. This title is the right mix of important new research and practical applicability for readers. It details the risks of doing business overseas and is as valuable to someone in Europe or Asia or in the US. Author, Kurtzman is well-known and respected in both academic and business circles.Since a systematic understanding of global risks is in its infancy, this book has the potential to be the definitive work that transforms the subject. It is packed with international companies including Sumitono Bank, Bre-X, Banco Ambrosiano, Parmalat, Royal Ahold, Barings Bank, Daiwa Securities, BCCI, Lloyd Aero Boliviano, Viacao Aerea, ChuoAoyama, Kanebo, Glo

I used to think that any book that is tied to some instrument, like the "Opacity Index," would be as exciting as watching paint dry. I was wrong.

Global Edge is a celebration of clear, quantitative thinking...something that is noticeably lacking in the academic and business discussions around transparency and global risk. Most of the experts and virtually all of the literature dealing with transparency and corruption tend toward the "softer side" of sense making...too much evangelization and not enough fact based discourse.

This is not a new problem. Anyone who has pursued formal research is familiar with the old axiom: "If you can measure it, it probably isn't worth the trouble." This is an exception to that rule, in that Kurtzman and Yago identify and measure risks that may, indeed, make a substantial impact on the bottom line.

Does it provide all the answers? No....but it goes a long way toward giving the reader a fact-based and context driven understanding of global risk.

Don't leave your home(or plan a new venture into a 3rd world country) without it.

Joel Kurtzman and Glenn Yago recommend that you do your homework before you invest in a country. Otherwise, problems such as corruption, weak legal systems, inefficient enforcement policies, deliberately confusing or illegal accounting procedures and dysfunctional regulations can increase your costs of doing business or even thwart your efforts. Learn what to expect before you go. The authors have developed an "Opacity Index" that aggregates information on these complex factors to help individuals and companies formulate strategies to protect themselves against the risks of globalization. They also offer a useful, contrarian perspective on a range of issues, for example, they question the vogue for investing in Brazil, Russia, India and China - highly opaque countries, according to their index. getAbstract recommends this book to managers who are responsible for committing their organizations' capital.
