Financial incentives have long been used to try to influence professional values and practices. Recent events including the global financial crisis and the BP Texas City refinery disaster have been linked to such incentives, with commentators calling for a critical look at these systems given the catastrophic outcomes. Risky Rewards engages with this debate, particularly in the context of the present and potential role of incentives to manage major accident risk in hazardous industries. It examines the extent to which people respond to financial incentives, the potential for perverse consequences, and approaches that most appropriately focus attention on major hazard risk. The book is based in part on an empirical study of bonus arrangements in eleven companies operating in hazardous industries, including oil, gas, chemical and mining.

In a fast-moving world, the necessity of making decisions, and preferably good ones, has become even more difficult. One reason is the variety and number of choices perhaps available which often are not presented or understood. Alternatives are often unclear and complex paths to them confusing and misleading. Thus the process of decision making itself requires analysis on an ongoing basis. Decision making is often made based on cultural factors whereas the best alternative might be quite different. The subject touches ethics aspects as well as psychological considerations. This book presents important research on the psychology of decision making related to education, behaviour and high risk situations.

Direct voting on key issues is a measure of society’s democratic maturity. “Forcing choice,” says Patrick Boyer, shows that a nation respects the judgment of its people and that its government is prepared to heed their will, and it can strengthen the bond that unites a country. But, just as a general election, a referendum can be risky business.

Seminar paper from the year 2013 in the subject Business economics - Banking, Stock Exchanges, Insurance, Accounting, Cass Business School, language: English, abstract: This essay examines the ability of investors to take desired positions in the risk-reward space by building a portfolio of non-listed funds of different investment styles. The question is examined from the viewpoint of a major institutional investor not subject to meaningful capital constraints. While it is acknowledged that there might be significant practical barriers when implementing the desired portfolio strategy, the essay focuses on the basic theoretical viability. The latest research on non-listed property fund performance was drawn upon. Furthermore, data from the Association of Real Estate Funds (AREV), the European Association for Investors in Non-Listed Real Estate Vehicles (INREV) and the Investment Property Databank (IPD) was used for illustrative purposes. To begin with, a brief introduction to non-listed funds and the concept of risk and reward is given. Subsequently, the methodologies applied by AREF and INREV to classify non-listed property funds are illustrated. Thereafter, the historic performance achieved by different styles is discussed. Then, factors determining the INREV style classifications are compared with the performance drivers identified by recent research. The findings are summarized in the last section.
