Financial Risk Management via the Measurement of Volatility of Market Risk of Viet Nam Tourism and Airline Industry after the Low Inflation Period 2015-2017 | Chapter 04 | Current Perspective to Economics and Management Vol. 4

Risk management policies and tools have been becoming one of hottest issues since collapses during global crisis 2007-2009. The Vietnam economy and tourism & airline industry have gained lots of achievements after the financial crisis 2007-2011, until it reached a low inflation rate of 0.6% in 2015. Tourism & airline companies face challenges in expanding Vietnam market such as pricing policy and supporting services, etc. This paper measures the volatility of market risk in Viet Nam tourism & airline industry after this period (2015-2017). The main reason is the vital role of the tourism & airline company group in Vietnam in the economic development and growth in recent years always go with risk potential and risk control policies.

This research paper aims to figure out how much increase or decrease in the market risk of Vietnam tourism & airline firms during the post-low inflation period 2015-2017.

First, by using quantitative combined with comparative data analysis method, we find out the risk level measured by equity beta mean in the tourism & airline industry is acceptable, i.e it is little lower than (<) 1.

Then, one of its major findings is the comparison between risk level of tourism & airline industry during the financial crisis 2007-2009 compared to those in the post-low inflation time 2015-2017. In fact, the research findings show us market risk fluctuation, measured by asset and equity beta var, during the post-low inflation time has decreased slightly.

Finally, this paper provides some ideas that could provide companies and government more evidence in establishing their policies in governance. This is the complex task but the research results shows us warning that the market risk volatility might be higher during the post-low inflation period 2015-2017. And our conclusion part will recommend some policies and plans to deal with it. Finding new potential markets and credit and financing policies are among directions for tourism & airline companies.

The Transportation Climate Change Connection | Chapter 07 | Current Research in Science and Technology Vol. 1

The transportation sector consumes more than two-thirds of oil supplies in the United States each year and accounts for approximately one-third of the United States carbon dioxide emissions. A draft of the Fourth U.S. Climate Action Report states that the current United States climate policy will culminate in the emission of 9.2 billion tons of greenhouse gases in 2020, which represents a 19 percent increase from 2000 levels. These higher levels of greenhouse gases contribute to rising temperatures while causing numerous transportation problems as abnormally hot days become more frequent and extreme. Due to the threat of such impacts and the finite supply of oil, myriad players in the transportation industry are researching conservation measures and alternative energy as well as the development of infrastructure and attitudes that promote emission reductions. This research examines a variety of practical and feasible solutions to decreasing greenhouse gases within the transportation sector based on the notion that as a result, new jobs would be created, billions of dollars could be saved, and dependence on foreign oil would diminish leading to greater national security while mitigating climate change.
