In today’s increasingly complex and uncertain business environment, financial analysis is yet more critical to business managers who tackle problems of an economic or business nature. Knowledge based on formal logic and even experience becomes less sufficient. This volume systematically sets out the basic elements on which to base financial analysis for business in the new century. It incorporates a previous work that can serve as the basis and foundation for the new contributions that are now being made in the field of financial economy and intend to provide business with instruments and models suitable for dealing with the new economic context. In dealing with rapid and unpredictable changes in technological and business conditions, it postulates a growing reliance on the opinions of experts instead of past data or probabilistic forecasts, which is a radical change but may yield fruitful results. For this reason, much emphasis is devoted to the problem of aggregation of the opinion of experts in the financial field, with the object of limiting, wherever possible, the subjective component of the opinions and making sure that the decisions have the best guarantee of reaching the desired objectives.

El libro de la Dr. Gil Lafuente constituye una refrescante fuente de ideas para gestionar la incertidumbre no estocástica pero sí perceptible por los agentes económicos que interactúan para crear valor corporativo. A partir de la exposición clara y concisa de la noción de conjunto borroso se emprende un viaje fascinante en el cual se borrosifican los modelos financieros más básicos y tradicionales, se exponen las nuevas nociones de orden y asignación, abriendo un promisorio campo de investigación y un nuevo marco de gestión para los gerentes que actúan en entornos altamente inestables. Sin embargo, en una futura edición sería interesante se incluyesen asociaciones entre procesos estocásticos y borrosos con aplicaciones financieras, con el fin de borrosificar modelos en boga tales como los de opciones reales. En síntesis, es interesante mirar lo que sucede en matería de gestión de la incertidumbre financiera en Barcelona.
