We are deeply saddened to report the death of Christopher Kobrak, Wilson/Currie Chair of Canadian Business & Financial History and long-time BHC member; he died this week in Paris. He was on the board of the European Business History Association, and served as a trustee of the Business History Conference, 2007-10. He worked on the BHC Finance Committee, 2010-2013 and was serving on the BHC’s Hagley Prize Committee at the time of his death. He was also vice-chairman of the Canadian Business History Society and active in promoting its growth. Interesting post. I am at the other end of this job discussion, as our group (an Analytics group within a Fortune 50 company) has hired a couple of Economics Ph.D’s recently, and we’re looking soon to hire 1 or 2 more. We hire Economists mainly for forecasting sales, etc, so time series analysis is important, but being able to do and learn other things is certainly essential (handling Big Data for example). The job market certainly seems tight from our end, as the number of applications we received for each position has been surprisingly low (maybe we’re not posting in the right places?).
The maintenance of cost accounts and financial accounts in a single set of books is known as integral accounting.

This question often plagues small business owners. Funding is not hard to come by these days but there are always strings attached, especially to unsecured sources of funds. This type of funding is available with no need to furnish guarantee or collateral and may tempt businessmen who are faced with cash crunches every now and then. The largest banks will try to prove quickly they are in compliance. In the back corridors, some will fret that while it makes big banks stronger and much better able to endure stress or extreme scenarios, it is yet another threat to banks’ dwindling returns on equity (ROE).… Read More
The term equity finance refers to share capital that is invested into a business for the medium to long term in return for a share of the ownership and in many cases an element of control over the running of the business.

Equity finance is fast becoming one of the most popular ways of gaining start up finance for businesses. As a lover you are sensual and passionate. You know what your partner wants and you’re more than happy to deliver.

In comprehensive – and, at times, excruciatingly boring – IRS fashion, the federal government offers 38 lesson to students. They explain why we pay taxes and how we pay taxes. What I have found to be the most helpful and useful feature are the simulations that provide instructions for what to do in 20 different taxpayer scenarios.
Do not make the assumption that everyone who suffers through home foreclosure made a bad loan or was living outside his or her means. Means can change at the drop of a hat. If a person is making eighty thousand dollars a year, buying a modest house is not living beyond his or her means. All it takes is the loss of a job, the death of a spouse, a … Read More
An MBA in finance may be the best degree to get for someone interested in investing, banking, real estate, or becoming a personal financial planner. The broad combination of receiving an MBA, with the added value of emphasizing in finance, can provide an added boost to someone interested in a career in the world of finance. Well, I’ll say this. I wish I had completed a PhD in economics when I was in my early 20’s, as, frankly, it would have probably been a far more productive use of my time than what I actually did during those years. Since I don’t have an economics PhD (and never will), I can’t be accused of rationalizing my own life choices.
TLAC is supposed to ensure banks have ample amounts of long-term and stable funding sources, especially vital when the biggest of banks now sport balance sheets flirting with $2 trillion levels. Bank CFO’s wince, because the requirement will increase the cost of funding, on average.

It seems there are two schools of thought on the math needed for an Econ Ph.D. program: (1) Basic calculus and statistics, or (2) theoretical courses on par with a math major (e.g. Real Analysis, Metric Spaces, Topology, etc.). Can this be attributed to area of specialization, or the rigor of the program? For example, the prerequisites to understand, say, labor economics would likely be very different from game theory or econometrics.… Read More
