Improving credit access for the food and agriculture sector through enhanced implementation of existing policies and new strategies / Gary B. Teves. Quezon City : School of Economics, University of the Philippines, 2014. HC 455 P6 2014 no.15 (FI)
“For several decades, the government has sought to develop the agriculture sector through programs like agrarian reform, agricultural modernization and rural finance, but farmers and fisherfolk remain to be the poorest sector in the Philippines. This paper seeks to explore ways to improve small farmers and fisherfolks’ access to credit provided by formal financial institutions. The government needs to implement and improve on its existing programs, identified in this study, and combine these with policy reforms and new strategies to fast-track the development of the food and agriculture sector to make economic growth more inclusive.”

Collective household consumption behavior [electronic resource] : revealed preference analysis / Laurens Cherchye, Bram De Rock, & Frederic Vermeulen. Hanover, Mass. : Now Publishers, . HB 820 C38 2012
CONSUMPTION (ECONOMICS)–ECONOMETRIC MODELS / HOUSEHOLDS–ECONOMETRIC MODELS
Collective Household Consumption Behavior presents a nonparametric “revealed preference” methodology for analyzing collective consumption behavior in practical applications, while possibly accounting for externalities, public consumption, and the use of assignable quantity information. Collective Household Consumption Behavior considers two types of collective models: the general collective model considers general preferences of the individual household members, which allow for externalities and public consumption within the household; the special collective models that do not allow for consumption externalities.

Remittances, informal loans, and assets as a risk-coping mechanism : evidence from agricultural households in rural Philippines / Marjorie C. Pajaron. Quezon City: School of Economics, University of the Philippines, 2014. HC 445 P6 2014 no. 16 (FI)
CONSUMPTION (ECONOMICS)–PHILIPPINES–MATHEMATICAL MODELS / HOUSEHOLDS–ECONOMIC ASPECTS–PHILIPPINES
“Investigates whether agricultural households in rural Philippines ensure their consumptions and whether they use remittances, informal loans, or assets as ex post risk-coping mechanisms. Since these households have limited access to formal insurance and credit markets, any shock to their volatile income can have substantial impacts. Using panel data and rainfall shocks as the instrumental variable for income shocks, this paper finds evidence that households depends on their networks of family and friends to partially ensure their consumption.”

DECISION MAKING–MATHEMATICAL MODELS
Case-based predictions : an axiomatic approach to prediction, classification and statistical learning / Itzhak Gilboa and David Schmeidler. Singapore : World Scientific Publishing, . HD 30.25 G65 2012
DECISION MAKING–MATHEMATICAL MODELS / PREDICTION THEORY–MATHEMATICAL MODELS
The book presents an axiomatic approach to the problems of prediction, classification, and statistical learning. Using methodologies from axiomatic decision theory, and, in particular, the authors’ case-based decision theory, the present studies attempt to ask what inductive conclusions can be derived from existing databases. It is shown that simple consistency rules lead to similarity-weighted aggregation, akin to kernel-based methods. It is suggested that the similarity function be estimated from the data. The incorporation of rule-based reasoning is discussed.

Crises and opportunities : the shaping of modern finance / Youssef Cassis. Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2011. HB 3722 C375 2011
FINANCIAL CRISES–HISTORY / FINANCIAL SERVICES INDUSTRY–HISTORY / BUSINESS CYCLES–HISTORY
Examining eight global financial crises since the late nineteenth century, this new historical study offers insights into how the financial landscape – banks, governance, regulation, international cooperation, and balance of power – has been (or failed to be) reshaped after a systemic shock. It includes careful consideration of the Great Depression of the 1930s, the only experience of comparable moment to the recession of the early twenty-first century, yet also marked in its differences.
Taking into account not only the economic and business aspects of financial crises, but also their political and socio-cultural dimensions, the book highlights both their idiosyncrasies and common features, and assesses their impact in the broader context of long-term historical development.

LINEAR MODELS (STATISTICS)
Cochrane, John H.
Continuous-time linear models / John H. Cochrane. Hanover, Mass. : Now Publishers, . QA 279 C635 2012
LINEAR MODELS (STATISTICS)
Discrete-time linear ARMA processes and lag operator notation are convenient for lots of calculations. Continuous-time representations often simplify economic models, and can handle interesting nonlinearities as well. But standard treatments of continuous-time processes typically don’t mention how to adapt the discrete-time linear model concepts and lag operator methods to continuous time.
Continuous-Time Linear Models attempts that translation and exposits the techniques to make the translation from familiar discrete-time ideas. The concluding section of this monograph collects the important formulas in one place. The author assumes a basic knowledge of discrete-time time-series representation methods and continuous-time representations.

MONEY / MONETARY POLICY / ECONOMIC POLICY / MACROECONOMICS
This book provides a comprehensive overview, in the form of eight long essays, of the evolution of monetary theory over the three-quarters of century, from the time of Keynes to the present day. The essays are originally based on lecture notes from a graduate course on Advanced Monetary Economics offered at York University, Toronto, written in the style of academic papers. The essays are mathematical in method — but also take a historical perspective, tracing the evolution of monetary thought through the Keynesian model, the monetarist model, new classical model, etc, up to and including the neo-Wickesellian models of the early 21st century.
