Making capitalism work by Leonard Solomon Silk( Book )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Making Capitalism Work examines how capitalism has evolved and how it is currently working in Asia, the former Soviet bloc, and the industrialized countries of the West. Recognizing the strengths of different capitalist regimes, the book suggests ways for each to remedy its defects. In the process, the authors show that policies based on a belief in an unfettered free market have failed both economically and politically. The book argues that a strong governmental role remains essential to assure prosperity, to insulate citizens from the fluctuations of the market, and to meet the responsibilities of the rich to the poor and of present generations to future ones

A World fit for people : thinkers from many countries address the political, economic, and social problems of our time( Book )

13 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A World Fit for People examines what impact the many dramatic worldwide changes - political, economic, social, cultural - are having on the lives of people all over the world. A collaborative effort of more than 50 thinkers from countries throughout the world, this remarkable book contains a range of specific proposals intended to convert threats to opportunities and fears to hopes, in order to foster an environment of peace, prosperity, and social harmony. Part One examines political aspects of changing systems and the links between democracy, development, and the market economy, addressing such issues as rising regionalism, "The West and the Rest," northern policies and southern responses, and the global role of transition countries. Part Two focuses on economic aspects of systemic change. Topics include the role of markets and governments in a free market economy, the plight of developing countries, conditions for aid, and the collapsing vision of global development. The roles of women and family, ethnic conflict, religion and, more generally, the human, social, cultural, and ecological aspects of change are considered in Part Three. The contributors advocate a respect for human rights and ethnic and religious diversity as a means of ensuring a pluralistic society. Part Four, which pays special attention to countries trying to overcome the legacy of "the old order," is devoted to such issues as the integration of underdeveloped countries into the global order; the privatization process; trade and payments reforms; and the risks of rapid transformation. A World Fit for People will serve as a useful guide to international economists, diplomats, political scientists, and students of international affairs
