Finance and Credit

  • Michael Z. Brooke


Part 3 looks at a number of issues that concern the financing of investments, exports and projects internationally. Finance for long term projects and for trade are the themes of the first two chapters, followed by one on the fast-growing topic of leasing. Chapters 3.4 and 3.5 deal with the insuring of capital risks and with credit control (both have useful addresses of sources for further information). Investment incentives available in the European Community are explained in the sixth chapter; a final chapter deals with compensation trading in its many aspects.
