Transactional Risk Analysis in Business Activities
A substantial body of literature, based on rational economics, argues that the decision to buy is based on risk-adjusted cost-benefit analysis . So as mentioned in the last chapter, transactional risk is one of the important factors in business decision-making. Furthermore, the importance of transactional risk is not just limited to business interactions, but is evident in almost all activities conducted in the world today, regardless of the domain, including areas such as health, mining, safety, air travel, planning and infrastructure etc. But regardless of its importance, it is incorrect to think that the term transactional risk can be defined globally or in a generic way, which can then be applied to any discipline of discussion. As seen from the discussion in Section 1.2, even though the broad meaning across domains may be the same, the specific objects of analysis and output concepts represented by the term transactional risk vary across disciplines. This means that the definition of transactional risk in one discipline may not be suitable for other disciplines, as their object of analysis might vary with the change of discipline, thereby changing its interpretation and the sub-categories of its analysis. Sub-categories of analysis are those specific factors by which transactional risk is determined and expressed in that domain.
