Develops probability-based projections that can be added to local tide-gauge trends to estimate future sea level at particular locations. The key coefficients in those models are based on subjective probability distributions supplied by a cross-section of climatologists, oceanographers, & glaciologists. Covers: concentrations of greenhouse gases; Greenland & Antarctic ice sheets, & small glaciers. Concludes that sea levels will rise 15 cm by the year 2050 & 34 cm by the year 2100, & a 10% chance that levels will rise 30 cm by 2050. Tables.

This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. Proposes a general equilibrium model where investors hire fund managers (FM) to invest their capital either in a risky bond or in a riskless asset. There is a small fraction of informed FM with superior info. on the default probability. Looking at the past performance, investors update their beliefs on the info. of their FM and make hiring and firing decisions. This leads to career concerns which affect the investment decision of un-informed FM, generating a żreputational premiumż. When the default probability is high enough, u
