The theory of externalities, public goods, and club goods by Richard Cornes( Book )

43 editions published between 1986 and 2003 in English and held by 993 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a theoretical treatment of externalities (i.e., uncompensated interdependencies), public goods, and club goods. Aimed at advanced undergraduate and graduate students making their first serious foray into this branch of economics, the book will also interest professional economists wanting to discover what their colleagues in public economics have been working on in recent years. As such, it attempts to tie together the most recent contributions in public economics, available in many diverse sources. The book will be suitable for courses concerned with public expenditure analysis, where no other single source for this material is currently available. Applications, theory, and policy aspects of public expenditure analysis are presented. Useful new graphical tools are also included. Among the topics included are: Nash equilibria, Lindahl equilibria, club theory, preference-revelation mechanisms, Coase theorem, externalities, and game theory
Global challenges : an approach to environmental, political, and economic problems by Todd Sandler( Book )

18 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 815 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using simple economic reasoning, this book analyzes a broad range of global challenges including global warming, ozone shield depletion, acid rain, nuclear waste disposal, revolution dispersion, international terrorism, disease eradication, population growth, tropical deforestation, and peacemaking. These challenges are put into perspective in terms of scientific, economic, and political considerations. Many of these contingencies are shown to be solvable or reduceable without much explicit coordination among nations. Although there is no single panacea for these challenges, much can be done to tailor solutions. This book is intended for a wide audience drawn from the social sciences, including economics, environmental studies, political science, sociology, and public policy. It should also interest the general reader who wants to learn about global challenges
The political economy of NATO : past, present, and into the 21st century by Todd Sandler( Book )

18 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using simple economic methods while accounting for political and institutional factors, this book puts forward a political economy viewpoint of NATO's current status and its future prospects. A balanced picture of NATO is presented that is sensitive to the perspectives from both sides of the Atlantic. This is accomplished by accounting for the institutional features and the philosophical aspects that distinguish government decision makers and the defense establishment in North America from their counterparts in Europe. A host of NATO policy concerns are addressed, including the optimal membership for the alliance, its role in peacekeeping missions worldwide, the appropriate methods for deterring terrorism, and proper procurement practices for the next generation of weapons. Additional topics concern defense burden sharing, arms trade, NATO's institutional structure, and NATO's role vis-a-vis other international organizations. Although the analysis is rigorous, the book is intended for a wide audience drawn from political science and economics."--Jacket

The economics of defense by Todd Sandler( Book )

22 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and Japanese and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Defense economics is the study of both defense and peace issues, using the tools of modern economics. It covers a range of issues, including nuclear proliferation, resource disputes, environmental externalities, ethnic conflicts, and terrorism, all of which present grave threats to peace and security. In a post-Cold War world military and political dangers are probably more numerous and more complex than ever before. In response, policy makers and researchers are increasingly applying economic techniques and insights to improve our understanding of the issues

Collective action : theory and applications by Todd Sandler( Book )

22 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and Spanish and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Must governments always intervene to accomplish collective action, or can individuals be expected to coordinate their actions without the need of governments ? Will collective action achieve efficient results ? What preconditions are conducive to successfull collective action ? Collective action problems involve almost every facet of an advanced economy and include the institution of standards of weights and measures, the control of pollution both within and across national borders, provision for national defense, the deployment of a nuclear deterrent among allies, and relief efforts in national disasters. In "Collective action" Todd Sandler synthesizes what has been learned about collective action since the 1965 publication of the groundbreaking study "The Logic of collective action" by Mancur Olson. Examining the validity of Olsonian themes and propositions through a wealth of examples drawn from a variety of fields, Professor Sandler explains the forces behind collective action successes and failures. He concludes that while none of Olson's propositions is true in general, most are valid in many cases that correspond to important real-world scenarios. [4e de couv.]

Handbook of defense economics by Todd Sandler( Book )

45 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second volume of the Handbook of Defense Economics addresses defense needs, practices, threats, and policies in the modern era of globalization. This new era concerns the enhanced cross-border flows of all kinds (e.g., capital and labor flows, revolutionary rhetoric, guerrillas, and terrorists) including the spillovers of benefits and costs associated with public goods and transnational externalities (i.e., uncompensated interdependencies affecting two or more nations). These ever-increasing flows mean that military armaments and armies are less able to keep out security threats. Thus, novel defense and security barriers are needed to protect borders that are porous to terrorists, pollutants, political upheavals, and conflicts. Even increased trade and financial flows imply novel security challenges and defenses. Globalization also underscores the importance of a new set of institutions (e.g., the European Union and global governance networks) and agents (e.g., nongovernmental organizations and partnerships). This volume addresses the security challenges in this age of globalization, where conflicts involve novel tactics, new technologies, asymmetric warfare, different venues, and frightening weapons. Volume 2 contains topics not covered in volume 1 i.e., civil wars, peacekeeping, economic sanctions, the econometrics of arms races, conversion, peace economics, and the interface of trade, peace, and democracy. Volume 2 also revisits topics from volume 1, where there has been a significant advancement of knowledge i.e., conflict analysis, terrorism, arms races, arms trade, military manpower, and arms industries. All of the main securities concerns of today are analyzed. Chapters are written by the leading contributors in the topic areas

The Economics of defence spending : an international survey( Book )

13 editions published between 1990 and 2011 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Defence spending raises issues of life and death, protection and security; it is a major issue for every nation, yet surprisingly little has been written about it. This comparative study of the economics of defence spending in countries throughout the world is an interesting contribution to the economics of defence, disarmament and peace at a time when relations between the superpowers are changing dramatically. Ten experts report and analyze a variety of international experiences, covering the major western powers, the Soviet Union, Israel, Japan and two key areas of the developing world, the Indian sub-continent and South America. They discuss the various factors and variables that influence a nation's defence spending, showing that since different nations do not face the same threats they differ in their willingness and ability to pay for protection. Some prefer independence of neutrality, while others have joined military alliances, some possess nuclear weapons, while others rely on all-volunteer forces
The future of development assistance : common pools and international public goods by S. M. Ravi Kanbur( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Development assistance is beset by two challenges; its past ineffectivenness in achieving the objectives of development and poverty reduction, and the emergence of a range of transnational problems affecting both developed and developing countries. How can aid be delivered more effectively? And how can it assist in international public goods which solve transnational problems? In this essay, the authors propose a twofold framework to guide development assistance: an approach to country-focused aid that would minimize coordination difficulties and enhance recipient country ownership, and a nuanced scheme for the provision of international public goods."--Jacket

On financing global and international public goods by Todd Sandler( )

10 editions published in 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

July 2001 Not all international public goods (IPGs) pose the same financial challenges. For some, encouraging adequate funding requires much ingenuity. For still other IPGs, incentives are consistent with the operation of markets or clubs; no official intervention is required as the IPGs are financed unofficially, with few transaction costs. Three dimensions of public goods--nonrivalry of benefits, the possibility of being excluded from benefits, and the technology for aggregating public supply--determine what kinds of institutions and transnational actions are required for their provision and financing. For some public goods--especially those for which the exclusion of nonpayers is not feasible--these properties are such that a public sector push is needed or the good will not be financed. This push can come from a supranational structure (such as the World Bank, the United Nations, or the European Union) that directly or indirectly collects the requisite fees from its members to underwrite international public goods (IPGs). To understand the role of international institutions in promoting IPGs, one must ascertain the nature of the good and whether it requires a push, a coax, or no assistance from a supranational structure or influential nation(s) and agents (such as charitable foundations). The transnational community should explicitly direct scarce resources only to those global and international public goods that need either a significant push or only a smaller coax by the transnational community. When clubs or markets can finance international public goods, the community should sit back and let incentives guide the actions of sovereign nations. This paper--a product of the Economic Policy and Prospects Group--is part of a larger effort in the group to analyze the financing requirements for international public goods.

Handbook of defense economics by Keith Hartley( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Handbook provides a self-contained survey of the current state of defense economics in the form of chapters prepared by leading specialists on various aspects in the field. The volume summarizes not only received results but also newer developments, from recent journal articles and discussion papers. Theoretical analysis, econometric techniques, and policy issues are addressed. The chapters fall into two essential categories: surveys and conceptual studies. Survey chapters present a synthesis, interpretation, and evaluation of the literature for particular subfields of defense economics, whereas the conceptual chapters elucidate the analysis of specific topics. Both types of chapters provide directions for future research. As with other volumes in the Handbooks in Economics series, this Handbook will be a definitive source, reference, and teaching supplement for use by professional researchers and advanced graduate students
