This ebook; Financial Microeconometrics: A Research Methodology in Corporate Finance and Accounting (PDF) explores new topics in modern research on applied accounting and empirical corporate finance; especially the econometric analysis of microdata. Dubbed “financial microeconometrics” by the author; this concept unites both methodological and applied approaches. The ebook examines how quantitative methods can be applied in corporate finance and accounting research in order to predict companies getting into financial distress. Presented in a straightforward and clear manner; it also suggests methods for linking corporate governance to financial performance; and discusses what the determinants of accounting disclosures are. Exploring these questions by way of numerous practical examples; this ebook is intended for practitioners; researchers; and college students who are not yet familiar with the variety of approaches available for data analysis and microeconometrics.
“This ebook on financial microeconometrics is an excellent starting point for research in accounting and corporate finance. In my view; the textbook is positioned between a narrative and a scientific treatise. It is based on a vast amount of literature but is not overloaded with formulae. My appreciation of financial microeconometrics has very much increased. The ebook is very well organized and properly written. I enjoyed reading it.” – Wolfgang Marty; Senior Investment Strategist; AgaNola AG
