Escape from empire the developing world's journey through heaven and hell by Alice H Amsden ( )
15 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 1,726 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
Beyond late development Taiwan's upgrading policies by Alice H Amsden ( )
9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,196 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."--BOOK JACKET
Asia's next giant : South Korea and late industrialization by Alice H Amsden ( Book )
30 editions published between 1989 and 2004 in English and held by 1,099 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rise of "the rest" : challenges to the west from late-industrializing economies by Alice H Amsden ( Book )
29 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 749 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 Economics of women and work by Alice Hoffenburg Amsden ( Book )
13 editions published in 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 701 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The market meets its match : restructuring the economies of Eastern Europe by Alice H Amsden ( Book )
11 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and held by 563 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

The role of elites in economic development ( Book )
9 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 133 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
