On the spillover of exchange rate risk into default risk
BooviMilo,Uro?evi? Branko,?ivkovi? Bo?ko
Economic Annals , 2009, DOI: 10.2298/eka0983032b
Abstract: In order to reduce the exchange-rate risk, banks in emerging markets are typically denominating their loans in foreign currencies. However, in the event of a substantial depreciation of the local currency, the payment ability of a foreign-currency borrower may be reduced significantly, exposing the lender to additional default risk. This paper analyses how the exchange-rate risk of foreign currency loans spills over into default risk. We show that in an economy where foreign currency loans are a dominant source of financing economic activity, depreciation of the local currency establishes a negative feedback mechanism that leads to higher default probabilities, reduced credit supply, and reduced growth. This finding has some important implications that may be of special interest for regulators and market participants in emerging economies.
Credit rating agencies and moral hazard
BooviMilo,Uro?evi? Branko,?ivkovi? Bo?ko
Panoeconomicus , 2011, DOI: 10.2298/pan1102219b
Abstract: The failure of credit rating agencies to properly assess risks of complex financial securities was instrumental in setting off the global financial crisis. This paper studies the incentives of companies and rating agencies and argues that the way the current rating market is organized may provide agencies with intrinsic disincentives to accurately report credit risk of securities they rate. Informational inefficiency is only enhanced when rating agencies function as an oligopoly or when they rate structured products. We discuss possible market and regulatory solutions to these problems.
Effects of psychoactive substances on otorhinolaryngologic system
BooviMilo,Vra?ari? Aleksandra,Klepec Bojan,Dimitrijevi? Nina
SANAMED , 2011,
Abstract: Substance abuse is the most common group of diseases. Many studies indicate the wide distribution in the general population, which in some areas has epidemic proportions. They often have health, family, professional and social consequences. Especially significant is damage of otorhinolaryngological region, due to specific way of intake. The authors cite studies that indicate harmful effects of some psychoactive substances on the auditory and vestibular apparatus, the nose and paranasal sinuses, oral cavity, pharynx, larynx, and other organs of head and neck region. Authors described morphological and structural changes in this region and presented extreme consequences of the mucous membrane, blood vessels and bone, as well as effects of substances on teeth and gingivas.
Free time, play and game
Boovi? Ratko R.
Sociologija , 2008, DOI: 10.2298/soc0801097b
Abstract: Free time and play are mutually dependent categories that are always realized together. We either play because we have free time or we have free time because we play (E. Fink). Play, no matter whether it is children's or artistic play or a spontaneous sports game (excluding professional sports) most fully complements human existence and thereby realizes free time as a time in freedom and freedom of time. Therefore, free time exists and is most prominent in play. Moreover, one game releases its creative power and effort through another one, especially through games of leisurely character. The means that free time is realized through games and vice versa. That, first of all, happens by a realization of freedom through a game in a free creative act, but also through an entertaining as well as leisurely play.
Various phenomena related to the revilement of kitsch
Boovi? Ratko
Sociologija , 2005, DOI: 10.2298/soc0502097b
Abstract: The author is interested in the phenomena of kitsch that can be found in various dimensions of modern life. The question that can be asked nowadays is: ’Is there any segment of modern life without kitsch’? We could say that there is not only a phenomenon of the kitsch-subject but also of the kitsch-object that entered modern society. Kitsch-subject is often defined as a person who sees the value as in a kitschy way. That person usually thinks that a work of art is of the same value as an expensive car or Persian carpet and buys these objects in order to gain in reputation. So he(she) usually decides to decorate his house and office with a lot of expensive paintings, books and furniture. In that way the kitsch-subject becomes a kitsch-object because he becomes a victim and a ’slave’ of all these objects. It is well-known that even the greatest authors sometimes create for the masses of people and add to the works some segments in order to make people buy the objects they made. So, the author is trying to point out that kitsch is a very common phenomenon that can be displayed in many different ways.
The semiotic code of 'comrade' and 'mister'
Boovi? Ratko R.
Sociologija , 2009, DOI: 10.2298/soc0903279b
Abstract: The paper analyzes the meaning of expressions (terms) 'comrade' and 'mister', especially with respect to established socio-political orders. What is at issue are the differences between communicative communities based on different mutual understandings among citizens by using expressions 'comrade' and 'mister', i.e. female 'comrade' and 'madam' ('miss'), within the framework of certain semiotic code or codes. Special emphasis is put on the ambivalences of communist ideology regarding the mandatory introduction of 'comrade' as the only permitted form of address ('we are all comrades'), while the term 'mister' was eliminated from communication as a class-based title. At the same time, the main 'comrades' of the communist government were arguably masters of not just the quantity but also the quality of other people's lives. It is especially interesting to cast a retrospective glance at the widespread everyday practices of addressing each other first as comrades during communism, and then as messieurs and madams (misses) in postcommunism, often without having established any real value criterion, and without finding a way of adequately acknowledging a citizen as a 'mister', that is, a 'gentleman'.
Ecological problems in the food industry
Boovi? Milan
Hemijska Industrija , 2002, DOI: 10.2298/hemind0205191b
Abstract: In regard to the development of agricultural and food technologies Yugoslavia up till now has not had a developed strategy of "development of the environment" - an ecological strategy, nor has it in that respect had clearly defined political scientifically-based strategies. Current efforts to define developmental concepts are almost completely neglected, foremost in the "promotion of new ecologically justified technologies" and the formation of national programs of sustainable development. World trends in this area are already directed to the production and promotion of so-called "healthy food" which, designated in several ways, is becoming more and more present on the tables of developed countries. Yugoslavia, beside its current economic difficulties, has great potential and a elastic chance to follow world trends and completely satisfy the EU standards EVRO-EMA and world ecological standards ISO 14 000 by the quality implementation of well planned ecologically and economically rational programs. n order to undertake appropriate measures for "sustainable development", it s previously necessary to assess the problem and objectively establish the status.
The philosophy of metaphysical egoism
Boovi? Miran
Theoria, Beograd , 2007, DOI: 10.2298/theo0702019b
Abstract: Although it is George Berkeley who is usually said to have constructed perhaps the most fantastic of all metaphysical systems in the history of philosophy, nevertheless a few years before his Principles and Dialogues an even bolder and more astonishing metaphysical theory was developed in France by the so-called ′egoists′. In the eighteenth century French, the term égo sme (or égomisme) was used not only in the ethical sense, that is, to describe the selfish, self-centered behavior of those who think and speak only of themselves and believe themselves to be more important than other people, but also in the metaphysical sense, that is, to denote the extremist view that only oneself exists. All our knowledge of the early eighteenth-century egoist philosophers is based on second-hand accounts.
Location analysis of the landfill of waste in Loznica
Boovi? Dejan
Journal of the Geographical Institute Jovan Cvijic, SASA , 2010, DOI: 10.2298/ijgi1002095b
Abstract: The subject of this paper regards the landfill of municipal and industrial waste in Loznica, actually its location and environmental hazards. The research was carried out in order to show the consequences of careless and incomplete evaluation of the conditions for a locating of a landfill in the example of Loznica. Besides the fact that it is located at the floodplain of the Drina River, the landfill is normally located to the direction of predominant wind, which has a significant influence on environmental dispersion processes. The landscape where the landfill is located has been impacted by flooded and groundwater and predominant wind, but on the other side, the environment has also been impacted by pollutants which come from the new system landscape-landfill. The results of the laboratory analysis help to target a gradual process of the soil contamination by heavy metals from the landfill, and to detect the general direction of contaminant migration, from southwest to northeast. Therefore, it is necessary to start working on recultivation and rehabilitation of the landfill and to begin with regional waste disposal. .
Analysis of Quality Mineral Water of Serbia: Region Arandjelovac  [PDF]
Milo? B. Rajkovi?, Ivana D. Sredovi?, Martin B. Ra?ovi, Mirjana D. Stojanovi?
Journal of Water Resource and Protection (JWARP) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jwarp.2012.49090
Abstract: In this paper it is presented the analysis of basic physical and chemical parameters, alkalinity and acidity, the analysis of kations, anions, heavy metals, microbiological analysis and determination of uranium content in waters of Serbia from 10 springs of Arandjelovac region and 2 samples of bottled drinking water. It is done by different methods of analysis according to which conclusion about the content and the quality of these waters can be made. The pH value of analysed waters shows that waters from springs Maiden spring, Je?ovac, Vrelo and Svin?ine are slightly acid, while mineral waters from springs Aleksijevi?, Exploitation and Talpara are slightly basic. The sample from Olga’s spring has slightly lower pH value. According to Regulation on the hygiene of drinking water, conductivity should be less than 1000 μS/cm. This condition is fulfilled by waters from springs Aleksijevi?, Talpara (ordinary), Maiden and Olga’s spring, Svin?ine and water from city supply system. Springs Je?ovac and Vrelo have slightly increased conductivity, while springs Exploitation and Talpara have conductivity significantly above the allowed values (mineral). Analysed natural mineral waters contain only hydrogencarbonates (bicarbonate). According to the content of bicarbonate it was concluded that samples from springs Exploitation, Talpara (mineral), Vrelo and Svin?ine belong to the category of bicarbonate waters, as the content of hydrogencarbonate in these samples is higher than 600 mg/dm3. Analysed mineral waters don’t show acidity towards methyl orange, which means that acidity of analysed waters comes from dissolved carbon acid.
