Russia's economic transitions : from late tsarism to the new millennium by Nicolas Spulber( )

26 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 1,971 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Russia's Economic Transitions examines the three major transformations that the country underwent from the early 1860s to 2000. The first transition, under Tsarism, involved the partial break-up of the feudal framework of land ownership and the move toward capitalist relations. The second, following the Communist revolution of 1917, brought to power a system of state ownership and administration - a sui generis type of war-economy state capitalism - subjecting the economy's development to central commands. The third, started in the early 1990s and still unfolding, is aiming at reshaping the inherited economic fabric on the basis of private ownership. The three transitions originated within different settings, but with a similar primary goal, namely the changing of the economy's ownership pattern in the hopes of providing a better basis for subsequent development. The treatment's originality, impartiality and historical breadth have cogent economic, social and political relevance
Organizational alternatives in Soviet-type economies by Nicolas Spulber( )

17 editions published between 1979 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume, which was originally published in 1979, an essay of analysis prefaces a collection of translated papers from Eastern Europe. The juxtaposition of analysis and original documents from Eastern European authorities (both revered there and disgraced) enables the reader to join in the experience of interpretation. The essay (Part I) provides an analysis of the mechanisms of Soviet-type economies. It concentrates on four issues: decision-making processes; the limits upon the choices made; practical implementation of the choices; and the objectives implied by them. This ends with an explanation of the relatively scant application of economic principles to the operation of this type of economic system. Part II is a reader consisting of appropriately chosen original texts from Eastern European sources grouped into sections on administration, resource allocation, planning and incentives. The issues are examined in relation to the special conditions which brought them to a head

The American economy : the struggle for supremacy in the 21st century by Nicolas Spulber( Book )

21 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 799 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work focuses on the economic challenges the American economy has met during the post-World War II era and on the new challenges - represented notably by the competing economies of Japan, Germany, and the entire European Union - which confront it as the 21st century approaches. The book shows how the transformations brought about by international competition fit into the long-term processes of economic growth and change with respect to structural mutations, technological development, the role of government, and the evolution of government-business relations. Professor Spulber presents a detailed critique of the thesis alleging that the American economy has experienced some kind of decline. He demonstrates not only that such a decline has not taken place but also that the economy will continue to strengthen if growth and change are primarily left to emerge from the impulses and incentives of the private economy

Redefining the state : privatization and welfare reform in industrial and transitional economies by Nicolas Spulber( Book )

27 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in English and Chinese and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Redefining the State examines in historical perspective the changes of the role of the state with regard to public ownership and the scope of welfare in the main industrial and transitional economies. These changes have given rise to illuminating debates on the state's size, range, and function, and have involved important transformations concerning the boundaries between the public and private sector, the forms and extent of privatization, and the nature and content of public welfare. These debates and transformations are of critical importance to understanding the actual and potential scope of the state in any economy

The appearance of this Second Edition has been encouraged by the favorable reception of the first. This has offered us the opportunity to update the materials and to expand the exposition ofour central theses concerning (1) the integration of water quantity-quality issues and the treatment of water as a multi-product commodity, with the market playing a major role in determining water quality-discriminant pricing; (2) the drawbacks of public controls, regulation and enforcement, and the need to expand privatization of water supply and of water and wastewater treatment facilities to ensure their appropriate development and modernization through increased reliance on private capital; (3) the unification and centralization of water management on the river basin level in order to handle effectively the expanding pressures for water availability, for the elimination of waterborne disease, for extensive and effective pollution abatement as well as coping with the related issues of soil erosion, siltation in streams, channels, and reservoirs, protection against distress from drought and floods, and with the myriad problems relating to the environment, recreation, and navigation. We have maintained the division ofthe book into four major parts and 12 chapters
