Political competition, innovation and growth in the history of Asian civilizations by Peter Bernholz ( )
7 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Do political decentralisation and inter-state competition favour innovation and growth? There has long been a lively debate surrounding this question, going back to David Hume and Immanuel Kant. This book is a new attempt to test its veracity. The existing literature tends to assume that the beneficial effects of inter-state competition have been confined to European history

Explaining monetary and financial innovation : a historical analysis by Peter Bernholz ( )
5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book discusses theories of monetary and financial innovation and applies them to key monetary and financial innovations in history {u2013} starting with the use of silver bars in Mesopotamia and ending with the emergence of the Eurodollar market in London. The key monetary innovations are coinage (Asia minor, China, India), the payment of interest on loans, the bill of exchange and deposit banking (Venice, Antwerp, Amsterdam, London). The main financial innovation is the emergence of bond markets (also starting in Venice). Episodes of innovation are contrasted with relatively stagnant environments (the Persian Empire, the Roman Empire, the Spanish Empire). The comparisons suggest that small, open and competing jurisdictions have been more innovative than large empires {u2013} as has been suggested by David Hume in 1742
Political competition, innovation and growth : a historical analysis by Peter Bernholz ( Book )
7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume confronts an important historical hypothesis with empirical evidence from selected periods of history. The hypothesis in question states that competition among political and legal organisations in developing rules has been a crucial condition for liberty, innovation and growth in the history of mankind. It is due to Immanuel Kant, Edward Gibbon and Max Weber and has been revived and further developed by Nobel-Laureate Douglass C. North who contributes the first chapter. The volume brings together political economists, historians and legal scholars to discuss the role of political competition in the rise and decline of nations - both in theory and in a large number of case studies

The European institutions as an interest group : the dynamics of ever-closer union by Roland Vaubel ( Book )
8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The institutions of the European Union are gaining more and more power at the expense of national and local governments, as well as individuals and private businesses. There would appear to be no reverse gear in this process, while objections from the general public, as expressed in periodic referenda, tend to be brushed aside. This groundbreaking study explains increasing centralisation by analysing the economic incentives at work. The structure of European institutions means they have a vested interest in ever-closer union because this enhances their influence and prestige. Moreover, the bureaucrats themselves are self-selecting. Those that are pro-EU are more likely to seek positions in these organisations and therefore tend to favour policies which give the institutions more responsibilities. The author sets out a series of reforms designed to counteract the centralising tendency and to ensure that the role of EU bodies is more closely aligned with the preferences of citizens
