Call for Papers for Special Issue on: "Financial markets and investment-financing decisions"

Guest editors: Mondher Bellalah and Jean-Luc Prigent

The North-American Journal of Economics and Finance (NAJEF) and the 8th International Finance Conference (IFC8) jointly announce a special issue on "Financial markets and investment-financing decisions".

The special issue aims at studying recent developments in the study of financial markets and the interplay between investment and financing decisions both theoretically and empirically. The financial theory is built on the fundamental conjectures of frictionless markets, rationality of players and market efficiency. The practice and conduct of financial markets show that such conjectures do not necessarily hold. Therefore, the prediction ability and performance of theoretical models based on these conjectures are questioned. Recent evidences show that financial markets exhibit a high level of misconduct in terms of impairment of volatility, aggravating stock market liquidity and fraud.

The purpose of this special issue is the study of issues related to markets frictions, behavioral biases, investment decision making, investment & financing decisions, market.
