Creating a learning society : a new approach to growth, development, and social progress by Joseph E Stiglitz( )

37 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and French and held by 2,426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Profound and dazzling. In their new book, Joseph E. Stiglitz and Bruce C. Greenwald study the human wish to learn and our ability to learn and so uncover the processes that relate the institutions we devise and the accompanying processes that drive the production, dissemination, and use of knowledge. The authors' analysis provides the foundations of an understanding of the progress and regress of nations. This is social science at its best. -- Partha Dasgupta, University of Cambridge
Competition demystified : a radically simplified approach to business strategy by Bruce C Greenwald( Book )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Columbia Business School professor Greenwald offers a new theory of competition for strategic planners to apply in the real world. He argues that there is only one essential factor in determining competitive advantages: how easy it is for competitors to enter or expand in a given market. If a company can erect strong barriers to entry--through customer captivity, lower production costs, or economies of scale--it can manage these advantages, anticipate competitors' moves, or achieve stability through bargaining and cooperation. Greenwald draws on game theory to explain what you should do if barriers to entry are strong, weak, or nonexistent. He covers a wide range of examples, from retail to telecommunications to auction houses, and his lessons can be applied whether your business is dominated by a single huge player, a handful of roughly equal players, or no one at all.--From publisher description
Glob·ali·zaʹ·tion n. the irrational fear that someone in China will take your job by Bruce C Greenwald( Book )

23 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To its critics, globalization is a terrible development that makes almost everybody worse off and threatens the survival of the planet. They blame it for everything from mass poverty in Africa and Latin America to the falling living standards for workers in Europe and North America. In contrast, globalization's advocates argue that it is the greatest force for good in human history, a powerful institution for improving the quality of life around the world. The underlying problem with both of these positions, says Bruce Greenwald and Judd Kahn, is that they are based on certain accepted truths that are either highly questionable or largely false. In Globalization, they cut through the myths surrounding globalization and look more closely at its real impact, presenting a more accurate picture of the present status of globalization and its future consequences." "The authors show that globalization is not a recent development but has a long and cyclical history. They explain how, by concentrating so intently on globalization, we ignore the role of other important trends and simply attribute every change to globalization. Perhaps most importantly, they reveal how the globalization debate largely ignores information that is essential to understanding what is really going on. While many commentators rely on anecdotes or studies that are fundamentally flawed, Greenwald and Kahn uncover the real facts about globalization and answer the most important questions it raises." "Looking to the future, Greenwald and Kahn Identify trends that point strongly to an economy in which services play a larger role and in which local decisions are critical. They suggest that international monetary reform is one area where global cooperation will be required."--Jacket
Towards a new paradigm in monetary economics by Joseph E Stiglitz( Book )

18 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Expanding upon the literature of new institutional economics, the first part of this study stresses the significance of imperfections in information, bankruptcy and banks. The second part examines the policy implications of the new paradigm emphasizing loanable fund demand and supply, and demonstrates its relevance to our understanding of two recent historical episodes--the East Asian financial crisis and the 1991 U.S. recession and subsequent recovery and boom."
Value investing : from Graham to Buffet and beyond by Bruce C Greenwald( Book )

10 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and Chinese and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Value Investing is a must for any serious investor wishing to gain a better understanding of the principles and practices behind this time-tested approach. It will earn a place on the bookshelf next to Graham and Dodd's Security Analysis and Graham's The Intelligent Investor."--Jacket
The curse of the mogul : what's wrong with the world's leading media companies by Jonathan A Knee( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through fresh analysis and revealing case studies, the authors expose the strategic failures underlying the consistently poor financial performance of media companies
The most important thing illuminated : uncommon sense for the thoughtful investor by Howard Marks( Book )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Howard Marks's The Most Important Thing distilled the investing insight of his celebrated client memos into a single volume and, for the first time, made his time-tested philosophy available to general readers. In this edition, Marks's wisdom is joined by the comments, insights, and counterpoints of four renowned investors and investment educators: Christopher C. Davis (Davis Funds), Joel Greenblatt (Gotham Capital), Paul Johnson (Nicusa Capital), and Seth A. Klarman (Baupost Group). These experts lend insight into such concepts as "second-level thinking," the price/value relationship, patient opportunism, and defensive investing. Marks also adds his own annotations, expanding on his book's original themes and issues. A new chapter addresses the importance of reasonable expectations, and a foreword by Bruce C. Greenwald, called "a guru to Wall Street's gurus" by the New York Times, speaks on value investing, productivity, and the economics of information.***Howard Marks, the chairman and cofounder of Oaktree Capital Management, is renowned for his insightful assessments of market opportunity and risk. After four decades spent ascending to the top of the investment management profession, he is today sought out by the world's leading value investors, and his client memos brim with insightful commentary and a time-tested, fundamental philosophy. Now for the first time, all readers can benefit from Marks's wisdom, concentrated into a single volume that speaks to both the amateur and seasoned investor. Informed by a lifetime of experience and study, The Most Important Thing explains the keys
Économie monétaire : un nouveau paradigme by Joseph E Stiglitz( Book )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in French and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adverse selection in the labor market by Bruce C Greenwald( Book )

13 editions published between 1978 and 2019 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Information and economic efficiency by Richard Arnott( )

12 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is an economy with adverse selection, moral hazard, or an incomplete set of risk markets "constrained" Pareto efficient? There are two sets of papers addressing this question, one asserting that, under seemingly quite general conditions, the economy is constrained Pareto efficient, the other (to which we have contributed) that it is not. In this paper, we delineate the differences in assumptions between the two sets of papers, and under our assumptions present an intuitive proof of the Pareto inefficiency of market equilibrium with moral hazard and identify what it is that the government can do that the market cannot
Towards a reformulation of monetary theory : competitive banking by Joseph E Stiglitz( )

10 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper, after providing a critique of standard monetary theory based on the transactions demand for money, examines the effect of monetary policy (changes in reserve requires and open market operations) in a model with competitive, risk averse banks. The effects of changes in bank net worth and bank's risk perceptions are also analyzed. In deep recessions, monetary policy may be ineffective because banks are unwilling to lend. The effects of monetary policy are, at most, only partially mediated through changes in the interest rate. The implications for traditional IS-LM analysis are briefly noted
Macroeconomic models with equity and credit rationing by Bruce C Greenwald( )

9 editions published between 1990 and 1992 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents a simple, general equilibrium macroeconomic model incorporating financial constraints, both credit and equity rationing, as well as other informational imperfections in labor and product markets, such as efficiency wage effects. A formulation somewhat analogous to the standard IS-LM model, but not suffering from the well known defects of that model, is derived. The mechanisms by which monetary policy affects the economy are described. Dynamics, including implications for long run growth, are investigated
Toward a theory of rigidities by Bruce C Greenwald( )

9 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents a theory of rigidity, or more properly inertia, in the responses of economic variables to changing environments. The theory rests on three fundamental assumptions: (1) that firms are risk averse, (2) that firms are uncertain of the impacts of changing decision variables and (3) that this uncertainty increases with the size of deviations in decision variables from appropriately defined past level. Under these circumstances an optimal portfolio of incremental decision variable adjustments exists which (a) takes variance minimizing adoptions to environmental change as a point of departure and then (b) is weighted in favor of changes in variables whose effects are less uncertain. In considering price and quantity adjustments, this implies that price and wage adjustments should largely incorporate expected inflation and, from that point, should be small relative to quantity adjustments, since in most situations the uncertainties associated with the consequences of quantity adjustment should be smaller than those associated with price adjustments
Financial market imperfections and productivity growth by Bruce C Greenwald( )

9 editions published between 1988 and 1991 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines the impact of financial market imperfections on long-term productivity growth. It focuses on failures in markets for the sale of equity securities and hence on the failure of markets which help firms diversify the risks of real investment. The paper examines separately situations in which productivity growth is driven by learning-by-doing and where it results from the cumulative impact of explicit investments in technology by firms, In general, a multiplicity of steady-state growth paths exists with different growth rates along each path. The particular path followed by any single economy (and hence the growth rate of that economy) will depend significantly on policy interventions which mitigate effects of financial markets
Die innovative Gesellschaft Wie Fortschritt gelingt und warum grenzenloser Freihandel die Wirtschaft bremst by Joseph E Stiglitz( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das weltweite Wirtschaftswachstum stagniert. Was lässt sich dagegen tun? Neue Exportmärkte durch mehr Freihandel schaffen? Ganz falsch! Wachstum entsteht vor allem durch Innovation, zeigen Joseph E. Stiglitz und Bruce C. Greenwald. Und Innovation gedeiht am besten an geschützten Orten, wo Raum ist für ständiges Dazulernen. Hohe soziale und ökologische Standards können Industriestaaten zu so einem Ort machen. Entwicklungsländer brauchen sogar noch mehr Schutz: Zölle bieten ihnen die Chance, ihre Ökonomie überhaupt erst aufzubauen. Damit Fortschritt gelingt, müssen wir deshalb statt neuer Freihandelsabkommen eine innovative Gesellschaft möglich machen!
Information, finance, and markets : the architecture of allocative mechanisms by Bruce C Greenwald( )

8 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While bankers and businessmen have long recognized the importance of finance. financial constraints, and financial institutions, they have played a secondary role in neoclassical economic theory. This paper identifies the economic functions with which financial institutions have been concerned, the central problems which they face, and the alternative ways by which those problems can and have been addressed. The importance of limited liability and the legal environment is stressed. The final section explores the relationship between information-based finance constraints, the evolution of the firm, and the growth of the economy
Asymmetric information and the new theory of the firm : financial constraints and risk behavior by Bruce C Greenwald( )

7 editions published between 1990 and 1994 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: averse individuals maximizing a utility function of terminal wealth
Keynesian, new Keynesian, and new classical economics by Bruce C Greenwald( )

7 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much of the new theory of macro-economics that has been built upon micro-economic models of imperfect information leads to conclusions which are surprisingly close in spirit to Keynes' original analysis. This paper summarizes the macro-economic implications of information-based models of efficiency wages, credit-rationing and the breakdown of financial markets for equity-type securities. It shows how these models lead to behavior by firms and interactions among economic agents that account for many of the phenomena identified by Keynes in qualitative terms which were largely lost in subsequent formalizations of the Keynesian model. These imperfect information macro-models provide consistent theoretical explanations in the Keynesian spirit in unemployment, investment concentrated business cycles, rigid prices and the effectiveness of monetary and fiscal policy interventions. In doing so, they reconcile macro and micro-economic analysis in a way that has so far been achieved neither by the traditional Keynesians, who assumed away the micro-dimension of the problem, nor by the new classical economists who assumed away the macro-dimension of the problem
Imperfect information credit markets and unemployment by Bruce C Greenwald( )

8 editions published between 1986 and 1988 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper describes how imperfect information in both capital and labor markets can, in a context of maximizing firms and perfectly flexible prices and wages, give rise to cyclical variations in unemployment whose character closely resembles that of observed business cycles
Pareto inefficiency of market economies : search and efficiency wage models by Bruce C Greenwald( )

9 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and German and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper shows that market economies with search and in which wages are affected by efficiency wage considerations are not constrained Pareto efficient. Wages are not set at Pareto efficient levels, nor is the level of employment (unemployment) Pareto efficient. We identify the nature of the biases and the welfare improving government interventions
