The theory of price uncertainty, production, and profit by C. A Tisdell( Book )

18 editions published between 1968 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Firms and farmers, under pure competition, must make production decisions in the face of price uncertainty. The author has integrated diverse theories of behavior under uncertainty to provide a new framework for his mathematical analysis of the impact of price uncertainty on the behavior of the firm. Drawing upon the work of Knight, Hicks, von Neumann, and Morgenstern, he develops a schema that accounts for a greater diversity of behavior than do existing theories, yet one which yields simple economic theorems of practical value. The conclusions he draws apply to both socialist and capitalist economics.Originally published in 1968.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

Science and technology policy : priorities of governments by C. A Tisdell( Book )

17 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I was asked recently to prepare an independent background report on the subject of priority assessment in science and technology policy for the Australian Science and Technology Council. The Council (while not necessarily endorsing this book) suggested that a wider audience could be interested in the type of material contained in my report and kindly gave me permission to publish the material in my own right. The present book contains this and other material, some of which was presented at a seminar on National Science Policy: Implications for Government Departments arranged by the Department of Science and the Environment. Additional ideas were developed in response to comments on the manuscript by referees, as a result of discussions with Professor John Metcalfe and Dr Peter Stubbs of Manchester University, a conversation with Dr Keith Hartley of the University of York and in the wake of a communication from Dr Ken Tucker, Assistant Director, Bureau of Industry Economics, Australia. Science and technology policy affects and concerns everyone of us if for no other reason than we cannot escape in this interdependent world from the economic, social and environmental overs pills generated by science and technology. We must face the problems and promises inherent in new and existing science and technology whether we like it or not. Not surprisingly this book finds that all industrialized countries seem to be facing similar economic and social problems

The economics of conserving wildlife and natural areas by C. A Tisdell( Book )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This coherent collection of both previously published and specially written papers applies general economic principles to the conservation of wildlife and natural areas, and outlines consequential policy issues. Particular consideration is given to open-access situations, property rights in wildlife and to the total valuation of species, allowing for their possible positive and negative values. Possible conflict between economic growth and biodiversity conservation is discussed, as are the arguments for state provision of parks and protected areas. Asian elephants, kangaroos and whales are selected examples of species used to illustrate applications of the underlying principles. Forestry management is also reviewed, drawing upon the experiences of China and India."--Jacket

Tourism and China's development : policies, regional economic growth and ecotourism by Julie Jie Wen( Book )

13 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

China's continuing economic reform since 1978 have substantially altered its economic structure, expanding the service sector, including the tourist industry. The reforms have resulted in spectacular economic growth and a boom in tourism development. But China's economic growth has been very uneven regionally and has been cause for political concern. The ability of tourism to counteract this uneven development and promote regionally decentralized development is therefore of special interest as is the sustainability of regional tourism, which often depends on nature conservation and the presence of minority cultures. This book addresses all those issues. Although focused on China, it deals with issues such as those involving the sustainability of tourism, and convergence and divergence in regional tourism development and economic growth relevant to other geographical areas

Trust, globalisation and market expansion( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The turbulence in world markets follows from changes in expectations based on variations in trust between many stakeholders. In a time of global crisis and turbulence, without equivalent since the great 1929 depression, it is important to revisit and analyse the role of trust in the world economic system. Trust is central to economic exchange and plays an important facilitation role in the global economy, enhancing inter-firm interaction and also exchanges between firms and consumers. Globalisation of markets relies on trust as a key ingredient to mediate exchange. Trust is also as an essential element of the network of firms and institutions that are involved in organising exchange. This book provides a collection of conceptual and empirical research papers which extend the understanding of the role of trust in a globalising world. The empirical studies present a range of current and different analytical methods to provide new insights into the processes of developing and managing trust between firms and consumers. The studies are grouped into sociological/network outcomes of trust and the psychological results of trust
