To offer a core concept of intellectual property, to consider various justifications for the recognition of intellectual property rights and to expound their operation in particular areas of activity is the purpose of this book. It is essential to examine both the concept of intellectual property and the reasons why a legal system might incorporate such a concept. We are increasingly told that the wealth of nations, consists in 'intangible assets'. These are the intangible products of human creativity, ingenuity and effort. It is frequently argued that these assets represent the future of the d
Urbanization and growth( Book )

11 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why is productivity higher in cities? Does urbanization cause growth or does growth cause urbanization? Do countries achieve rapid growth or high incomes without urbanization? How can policy makers reap the benefits of urbanization without paying too high a cost? Does supporting urbanization imply neglecting rural areas? Why do so few governments welcome urbanization? What should governments do to improve housing conditions in cities as they urbanize? Are innovations in housing finance a blessing or a curse for developing countries? How will governments finance the trillions of dollars of infrastructure spending needed for cities in developing countries? First in a series of thematic volumes, this book was prepared for the Commission on Growth and Development to evaluate the state of knowledge of the relationship between urbanization and economic growth. It does not pretend to provide all the answers, but it does identify insights and policy levers to help countries make urbanization work as part of a national growth strategy. Written by prominent academics in their fields, Urbanization and Growth seeks to create a better understanding of the role of urbanization in growth and to inform policy makers tackling the formidable challenges it poses

Leadership and growth( Book )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book reviews Nigeria's growth performance and its impact on the labor market and proposes a growth strategy aimed at further accelerating growth and enhancing the growth elasticity of employment. The growth strategy rests on three pillars: Targeted interventions to address binding constraints in value chains with high growth and employment potential. These binding constraints include poor physical infrastructure and investment climate, lack of access to finance, pervasive skills gaps, and restrictive trade policies. Successful interventions in these value chains need to be designed based on an assessment of what is most relevant, feasible, cost-effective and provides the greatest near and medium-term benefits. To be effective, these interventions should emanate from a dialogue with the private sector and allow for swift correction and suitable governance arrangements. Comprehensive reform of the technical and vocational education system: This will be needed not only to create conditions for more rapid growth, but also to combat youth unemployment. Private sector-led approaches to improved vocational training, where the government plays the role of standardizing curricula and accrediting programs, are the most promising route for reform. Trade policy reform. Import bans and high tariff barriers substantially increase the cost of doing business in value chains with high employment potential. Further trade liberalization will be essential to allow a restructuring of the economy towards sectors where Nigeria is globally competitive

Health and growth( Book )

12 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book containes a series of state of the art essays on topics related to health and growth. The Commission on Growth and Development (CGD)--in preparing its own Growth Report--wished to take stock of the current state of knowledge and understanding of economic growth, and thus commissioned a series of essays on a range of thematic areas. One such area is health. The following questions are discussed in the book: Does investing in health raise economic growth? Can governments achieve rapid growth or high incomes without investing in health? What are the options and benefits of different analytic approaches to measuring the causal link between health and growth? Have medical advances influenced life expectancy levels? Do health investments lead to higher individual productivity? Why are investment in early childhood development and nutrition important? How do governments invest in improving health status? Why do all governments invest in health care services? Where should governments invest in health to improve the welfare and health status of the population? What are the pitfalls in public health care provision and finance? How can public investments raise health status and household productivity?

China and the global economy medium-term issues and options a synthesis report by Edwin Lim( )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

China's economic and social achievements since the beginning of reform and opening are unprecedented in global history. Managing the growth process in this continuously changing environment has required great skill and the use of unconventional economic policy. Now China has entered a new era in its development process with a set of challenges largely different from those of the recent past. Some problems -- such as growing internal and external structural imbalances, increasing income and regional inequality -- have arisen from, or been exacerbated by, the very pattern and success of high growth since reforms began. Others are newly posed by rapid changes in the global economy. These challenges can best be tackled in an integrated and coordinated fashion. This report identifies the primary challenges facing China today and presents options for meeting them
