This book shows that a special bank bankruptcy regime is desirable for the efficient restructuring and/or liquidation of distressed banks. It explores in detail both the principal features of corporate bankruptcy law and the specific characteristics of banks including the importance of public confidence, negative externalities of bank failures, fragmented regulatory framework, bank opaqueness, and the related asset substitution problem and liquidity provision. These features distinguish banks from other corporations and are largely neglected in corporate bankruptcy law. The authors propose changes in both prudential regulation and reorganization policies that should allow regulators and banking authorities to better mitigate disruptions in the financial system and minimize the social costs of bank failures. Their recommendations are complemented by a discussion of bank failures from the 2007–2009 financial crisis.

The topic of destination branding has attracted academic interest only recently and the field remains in its infancy. Therefore, the aim of the book is to clarify the dilemma observed at conceptual and empirical levels concerning recent research findings in the area. Stemming from the main branding concepts and specific characteristics of a destination, the book introduces a two- dimensional approach to destination branding. Such proposed approach integrates brand identity and equity and enables different destination stakeholders to be included in the process. Theoretical concepts are empirically verified on the examined brand of Slovenia. Special consideration is given to the concept of customer- based brand equity for a tourism destination, which is investigated for Slovenia and its competitive country Austria from the perspective of two culturally heterogeneous tourist markets (German and Croatian). The book should be especially useful to academics and students interested in exploring the destination branding phenomenon and also to practitioners involved in the process of systematic development of destination brands.

The authors argue that financial system continue to be an underdeveloped sector in the Slovenian economy. The study shows that institutional development is needed in order to ensure restructuring and development of financial sector. Institutional development needs to improve the international competitiveness of financial institutions and their integration of the financial system of the Euro area/EU. Such institutional development may guarantee successful long-term performance of financial system with respect to its main functions, which are crucial for companies and inhabitants. Through the research project "Competitiveness of the financial system of Slovenia" that lasted on the Economic Faculty, University of Ljubljana through years 20042006, we have focused on two aspects of the financial system development: first, on the question of the REPOmarket development as an important segment of the money market and on the possibility of the inclusion of the economic subjects on the REPOmarkets in Euro area; and second, on the question of corporate taxation in Slovenia. Both views of competitiveness that are under the scrutinity of this work represent the crucial development aspects, where the government may play an important role, with the goal to increase the competitiveness of economic subjects in the wider economic area. This allows for better achievement of the strategic economic goals.
