The author seeks to demonstrate that political risk is often misunderstood and therefore ineffectively managed and incorporated into a company’s Business Strategy. Consequently, companies are at risk as a result of this when they venture into Foreign Direct Investment (FDI.)...

The purpose of this paper is to focus on this possible disconnection by using the cointegration tests, to detect a possible equilibrium relation between the stock exchange returns and the real economic activity growth (measured by the GDP). The period of study lies between 1969 and 2008, according to...
