Escape from empire : the developing world's journey through heaven and hell by Alice H Amsden( Book )

21 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Escape from Empire, Alice Amsden argues that the more freedom a developing country has to determine its own policies, the faster its economy will grow. America's recent inflexibility - as it has single-mindedly imposed the same rules, laws, and institutions on all developing economies under its influence - has been the backdrop to the rise of two new giants, China and India, who have built economic power in their own way

The rise of "the rest" : challenges to the west from late-industrializing economies by Alice H Amsden( Book )

38 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and Portuguese and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1965, "the rest" accounted for less than one-twentieth of the world manufacturing output. By 1995, they produced nearly one-fifth of world output. This book explains the economic policies that allowed for this rapid growth "The rest" comprises primarily at China, India, Indonesia, South Korea, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, and Turkey. Amsden shows that their economic growth was driven by industrialization that was fostered by national policies, and it occurred without the countries' possessing proprietary innovations of their own. Rather, the countries relied on a process of pure learning from advanced countries to establish their modern industries. In this transition the countries moved from economies with assets based on primary products to assets based on knowledge." (Pub. Web page)
The market meets its match : restructuring the economies of Eastern Europe by Alice H Amsden( Book )

17 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and held by 575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With close attention to the history and institutional realities of the region, The Market Meets Its Match explains the failure of the simplistic market medicine administered in the first five years of transition. Merely "getting the prices right"--Lowering wages and raising interest rates and energy prices - won't improve competitiveness, the authors argue, as long as nonlabor costs such as the quality of goods, product design, outmoded technology, and inefficient distribution channels remain problems. Easing these bottlenecks requires long-term capital accumulation and profit maximization. The institutions necessary for such growth have not developed under Eastern Europe's new "pseudo-capitalism," as the authors demonstrate, and "pseudo-privatization," while distributing state property to citizens, has not provided them with the capital and technology they need to succeed

Beyond late development : Taiwan's upgrading policies by Alice H Amsden( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book Alice Amsden and Wan-wen Chu cover new ground by analyzing the phenomenon of high-end catch-up. They study how leading firms from the most advanced latecomer countries like Taiwan have increased their market share in mature high-tech industries and services." "The profits that true innovators in these industries once enjoyed have already declined, but profit rates are still above average. The latecomer firm that succeeds in capturing these rents earns "second mover" advantage. Amsden and Chu examine the successful second movers in electronic and modern services. The critical factors, they show, are the government policies and large-scale firms that drive skills, speed, and scale."--Jacket

The role of elites in economic development( Book )

21 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elites have a disproportionate impact on development outcomes. While a country's endowments constitute the deep determinates of growth, the trajectory they follow is shaped by the actions of elites. But what factors affect whether elites use their influence for individual gain or national welfare? To what extent do they see poverty as a problem? And are their actions today constrained by institutions and norms established in the past? This volume looks at case studies from South Africa to China to seek a better understanding of the dynamics behind how elites decide to engage with economic development. Approaches include economic modelling, social surveys, theoretical analysis, and program evaluation. These different methods explore the relationship between elites and development outcomes from five angles: the participation and reaction of elites to institutional creation and change, how economic changes affect elite formation and circulation, elite perceptions of national welfare, the extent to which state capacity is part of elite self-identity, and how elites interact with non-elites

Firm ownership, FOEs, and POEs by Alice H Amsden( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Where the theory of free competition reigns, developing countries should open their arms to investments from all types of enterprises in order to maximize jobs. Ownership, measured by votes of shareholders or boards of directors, is immaterial to performance. Matters change drastically, though, when competition depends on monopolistic assets and market theory no longer rigorously holds. Then, ownership matters. Foreign owned enterprises from developed countries can "crowd out" privately owned enterprises from developing countries. They can break their back before they have a chance to acquire their own assets. FOEs in direct competition with POEs are not necessary for economic development to flourish, and it is dangerous for a promising POE to confront a privileged FOE in its own back yard, often with the backing of the FOEe's powerful government. In this paper it is argued that because assets differ systematically between FOEs and POEs in their respective stages of evolution, FOEs may not contribute more to economic development in monopolistic industries than POEs. Indeed, the best POEs in the fastest growing emerging economies (e.g. Korea's Samsung, India's Tata, and Brazil's Embraer) tend to be more entrepreneurial than FOEs. The paper discusses the contribution of POEs vis-à-vis FOEs to economic development in emerging economies. -- entrepreneurship ; foreign investment ; firm ownership ; industrialization
