Economic growth in the Asia Pacific region by James H Gapinski( )

18 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book seeks to account for what James H. Gapinski calls the "miraculous" growth of Asian economies. He examines several major determinants of growth, including capital quantity (gross investment and physical depreciation), capital quality (embodied technical progress), labor quantity (employment), labor quality (education), international trade (exports and openness), and total factor productivity (growth not accounted for by capital and labor quantities). Along the way, Gapinski examines implications for policymakers of the current growth trends."--Jacket

The Economics of saving by James H Gapinski( Book )

15 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book began when a letter reached my desk in November 1989. Written by Warren Samuels, professor of economics at Michigan State University and editor for Kluwer Academic Publishers, the letter reviewed the philosophy behind Kluwer's series on recent economic thought and accordingly expressed interest in the controversies that surround con temporary topics in the discipline. It graciously went on to invite me to organize, consonant with that philosophy, a volume of chapters on saving. Soon thereafter I learned that the chapters were to be original compositions. I also learned that I would have substantial flexibility in structuring the volume and in recruiting contributors, who logically would be authorities in the field. Succinctly, Samuels was inviting me to work with leading scholars in exploring the current controversies in saving, one of my favorite subjects. That invitation was simply too tempting to refuse. Preparation of the book's outline went smoothly. It was obvious that the statistics of saving should be covered along with the theories of saving. It was equally obvious that special issues must be addressed: Ricardian Equivalence, supply-side doctrine, and economic development among others. These themes should be handled so as to bring out the ideological tensions in the profession, and that criterion helped to shape the list of potential contributors. That is, both sides of a conflict should be represented, and both should be given the same treatment

Economic impact of the arts : a sourcebook by Washington, DC National Conference of State Legislatures( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book represents a collection of 7 works by authors arguing for the support of public spending on the arts: (1) "Introduction: The Value of Economic Reasoning and the Arts" (Harry Hillman-Chartrand), examines the changing social perception of the arts over time, and describes the interaction among the sectors of the arts; (2) "Arts Impact Studies: a Fashionable Excess" (Bruce A. Seaman), questions the theory underlying studies that measure primary spending associated with art activities for the arts are seen as having an important role in local economic development by improving the social infrastructure of communities and by enhancing the quality of human capitol within a region, a role which is not quantitatively measurable; (3) "Economic Impact Studies of the Arts as Effective Advocacy" (Anthony J. Radich and Sonja K. Foss), explores the ways in which five illustrative economic impact studies were tools of effective advocacy for the arts by achieving communication between arts advocates and representatives of business and government; (4) "Improving the Design and Policy Relevance of Art Impact Studies: a Review of the Literature" (David Cwi), reviews impact studies in 16 states, discussing the terms of reference and content of those studies faulting the typical study as doing less to assist its sponsors in arts policymaking than such studies could; (5) "The Role of the Arts in State and Local Economic Development" (R. Leo Penne and James L. Shanahan), indicates that, in the postindustrial society, the arts are amenities that attract and retain talented people, foster the spirit of innovation and adventure, convey a positive city image, and thus are real contributors to local economic development; (6) "Evaluating Cultural Policy through Benefit/Cost Analysis" (William S. Hendon), advocates and describes procedures for explicit and quantified cost benefit analysis; and (7) "Economic Structure and Impact of the Arts: Comparison with the Nonarts" (James H. Gapinski), completes the selection of articles with the common message that the arts have a pervasive, positive effect on local economies. A glossary, a bibliography, and a section about the authors follow. The book is indexed by subject, name, and studies cited. (Mm)

Faculty Skills and the Reward Structure in Academe by Howard P Tuckman( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

What is the relationship between salaries and the functioning of the academic marketplace? Are the salaries of faculty members determined to a substantial degree by market valuation of their skills. The skills market, however, may differ across disciplines and sexes, and therefore the reward for a given skill may differ correspondingly. Findings indicate that (1) faculty salaries do differ by discipline and sex; (2) women earn less than men with like characteristics; (3) teaching and public service yields low compensation; (4) publishing and administration carry much larger returns.
