Key Features

  • Presents coherent summaries of major finance fields, marking important advances and revisions
  • Describes the best corporate finance research created about the 2008 financial crises
  • Exposes readers to a wide range of subjects described and analyzed by the best scholars


In the 11 articles in this first of two parts, top scholars summarize and analyze recent scholarship in corporate finance.  Covering subjects from corporate taxes to behavioral corporate finance and econometric issues, their articles reveal how specializations resonate with each other and indicate likely directions for future research. By including both established and emerging topics, Volume 2 will have the same long shelf life and high citations that characterize Volume 1 (2003).


Graduate students and professors worldwide working in all subdisciplines of economics and finance.
