The aim of this volume is to work out an evo-lutionary and behavioral theory of value. To do so thoroughly, Commons examines the decisions of the courts. Doing so compelled an exami-nation of what the courts mean by reasonable value. This edition is graced with a special introduction that places Commons in proper academic as well as intellectual context.

Permeability is the primary control on fluid flow in the Earth’s crust and is key to a surprisingly wide range of geological processes, because it controls the advection of heat and solutes and the generation of anomalous pore pressures. The practical importance of permeability – and the potential for large, dynamic changes in permeability – is highlighted by ongoing issues associated with hydraulic fracturing for hydrocarbon production (“fracking”), enhanced geothermal systems, and geologic carbon sequestration. Although there are thousands of research papers on crustal permeability, this is the first book-length treatment. This book bridges the historical dichotomy between the hydrogeologic perspective of permeability as a static material property and the perspective of other Earth scientists who have long recognized permeability as a dynamic parameter that changes in response to tectonism, fluid production, and geochemical reactions
“123 authors contributed to the papers in this book. A glance at their affiliations shows excellent representation of scientists mostly from North America, Europe, and Japan (with one or two authors each from Australia, New Zealand, India, and China). The book editors, Tom Gleeson, University of
Victoria, Canada, and Steve Ingebritsen, USGS, are among the top thought leaders in the study and understanding of crustal permeability”……”This book represents an excellent resource and reference for any professional earth scientist concerned with earth systems and processes influenced by the flow of fluids.” The Leading Edge, April 2017

Get a new perspective from the ‘other half’ of macroeconomics
The failure of the vast majority of economists in government, academia and the private sector to predict either the post-2008 Great Recession or the degree of its severity has raised serious credibility issues for the profession. The repeated failures of central banks and other policymakers in all advanced countries to meet their inflation or growth targets in spite of astronomical monetary easing, have left the public rightfully suspicious of the establishment and its economists.
The Other Half of Macroeconomics and the Fate of Globalization elucidates what was missing in economics all along and what changes are needed to make the profession relevant to the economic challenges of today. Once the other half of macroeconomics is understood both as a post-bubble phenomenon and as a phase of post-industrial economies, it should be possible for policy makers to devise appropriate measures to overcome difficulties advanced countries are facing today such as stagnation and income inequality.
• Shows how it’s possible to devise appropriate policy response to slow wage and productivity growth in these economies
• Demonstrates that the effectiveness of monetary and fiscal policy changes as an economy undergoes different stages of development
• Argues that tax rules, regulations and even educational system must be revised to match the need of pursued (by emerging nations) countries
• Explains the 200-year process of economic development and where that process is taking all of us
Inside, Richard C. Koo offers a completely new way of looking at the economic predicament of advanced countries today.

Avoid downturn vulnerability by managing correlation dependency
Asymmetric Dependence in Finance examines the risks and benefits of asset correlation, and provides effective strategies for more profitable portfolio management. Beginning with a thorough explanation of the extent and nature of asymmetric dependence in the financial markets, this book delves into the practical measures fund managers and investors can implement to boost fund performance. From managing asymmetric dependence using Copulas, to mitigating asymmetric dependence risk in real estate, credit and CTA markets, the discussion presents a coherent survey of the state-of-the-art tools available for measuring and managing this difficult but critical issue.
Many funds suffered significant losses during recent downturns, despite having a seemingly well-diversified portfolio. Empirical evidence shows that the relation between assets is much richer than previously thought, and correlation between returns is dependent on the state of the market; this book explains this asymmetric dependence and provides authoritative guidance on mitigating the risks.
Examine an options-based approach to limiting your portfolio’s downside risk
Manage asymmetric dependence in larger portfolios and alternate asset classes
Get up to speed on alternative portfolio performance management methods
Improve fund performance by applying appropriate models and quantitative techniques
Correlations between assets increase markedly during market downturns, leading to diversification failure at the very moment it is needed most. The 2008 Global Financial Crisis and the 2006 hedge-fund crisis provide vivid examples, and many investors still bear the scars of heavy losses from their well-managed, well-diversified portfolios. Asymmetric Dependence in Finance shows you what went wrong, and how it can be corrected and managed before the next big threat using the latest methods and models from leading research in quantitative finance.
