Global Business and the Terrorist Threat

by H.W. Richardson

Global business is affected by global terrorism and the two are intricately linked on many levels. This book is an eclectic and enlightening compendium of research that explores the myriad interrelationships between the two. A companion to and expansion on the authors' previous books in the area, "Global Business and the Terrorist Threat" takes a closer look at practical business management, as influenced by terrorist infrastructure, networks and actions. Many overlapping areas of influence between business and terrorism are explored in depth in the book. Among other topics, the authors discuss terrorism and news flows and their effect on stock markets and the effects of transitional terrorism on bilateral trade. The importance of business continuity in the face of ongoing threats is detailed, as are efforts to avoid inadvertent interactions with terrorist groups. Border issues, challenges of benefit-cost analysis for terrorism security regulations, the impact of 9/11 on the travel industry and the assessment and management of global interdependent risks close out the book.
