The market for virtue : the potential and limits of corporate social responsibility by David Vogel( )

47 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 2,976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The principles and practices of corporate social responsibility date back more than a century, but the current wave of global interest is unprecedented. With The Market for Virtue, David Vogel has provided the most comprehensive analysis to date of the contemporary CSR movement in both the United States and Europe. A renowned authority on business-government relations, Vogel offers a thoughtful and balanced appraisal of the movement's accomplishments and limitations, including a critical evaluation of the business case for CSR." "The Market for Virtue explores the extent to which improvements in corporate conduct can occur without more extensive or effective government regulation - in the United States, Europe, the Far East, and developing nations. In other words, what is the long-term potential of business self-regulation? The improvement that can be expected is far more modest than recent breathless writing on CSR would indicate."--Jacket
What's the beef? : the contested governance of European food safety by Christopher K Ansell( )

18 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,972 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines European food safety regulation at the national, European, and international levels as a case of "contested governance," illustrating issues of institutional trust and legitimacy
The politics of precaution : regulating health, safety, and environmental risks in Europe and the United States by David Vogel( )

24 editions published between 2012 and 2018 in English and held by 1,461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Politics of Precaution examines the politics of consumer and environmental risk regulation in the United States and Europe over the last five decades, explaining why America and Europe have often regulated a wide range of similar risks differently. It finds that between 1960 and 1990, American health, safety, and environmental regulations were more stringent, risk averse, comprehensive, and innovative than those adopted in Europe. But since around 1990, the book shows, global regulatory leadership has shifted to Europe

Lobbying the corporation : citizen challenges to business authority by David Vogel( Book )

10 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 829 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lobbying the corporation vividly describes the most important political conflicts that have directly affected corporations, including the lunch-counter sit-ins in the South, the campus protests surrounding Dow's production of napalm, the challenges to Honeywell's manufacture of antipersonnel weapons, Campaign GM's attempt to make the management of General Motors politically accountable, the churches' decade-long struggle to pressue American corporations to withdraw from South Africa, and the shareholder campaigns of the American Jewish Congress to discourage corporate compliance with the Arab boycott of Israel. It also analyzes the implications o fthe new willingness of banks, insurance companies, universities, and other institutional investors to scrutinize--and challenge--the social and political decisions of corporate executives."--Dust jacket
California greenin' : how the Golden State became an environmental leader by David Vogel( )

13 editions published between 2018 and 2020 in English and held by 759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the course of its 150-year history, California has successfully protected its scenic wilderness areas, restricted coastal oil drilling, regulated automobile emissions, preserved coastal access, improved energy efficiency, and, most recently, addressed global climate change. How has this state, more than any other, enacted so many innovative and stringent environmental regulations over such a long period of time? The first comprehensive look at California's history of environmental leadership, California Greenin' shows why the Golden State has been at the forefront in setting new environmental standards, often leading the rest of the nation. From the establishment of Yosemite, America's first protected wilderness, and the prohibition of dumping gold-mining debris in the nineteenth century to sweeping climate change legislation in the twenty-first, David Vogel traces California's remarkable environmental policy trajectory. He explains that this pathbreaking role developed because California had more to lose from environmental deterioration and more to gain from preserving its stunning natural geography. As a result, citizens and civic groups effectively mobilized to protect and restore their state's natural beauty and, importantly, were often backed both by business interests and by strong regulatory authorities. Business support for environmental regulation in California reveals that strict standards are not only compatible with economic growth but can also contribute to it. Vogel also examines areas where California has fallen short, particularly in water management and the state's dependence on automobile transportation. As environmental policy debates continue to grow more heated, California Greenin' demonstrates that the Golden State's impressive record of environmental accomplishments holds lessons not just for the country but for the world"--Book jacket
Kindred strangers : the uneasy relationship between politics and business in America by David Vogel( Book )

15 editions published between 1996 and 2017 in English and held by 745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Notwithstanding the myriad forms of government assistance to American business, the relationship of business to politics in the United States remains a highly antagonistic one, characterized by substantial mutual distrust. This adversarial relationship is both reflected and reinforced not only in America's unique legalistic and confrontational style of regulation, the political strategies of the public interest movement, the American approach to American industrial policy, and the distinctive way Americans think about the subject of business ethics. This volume brings together more than two decades of scholarship on business and politics by one of the leading authorities on this subject
Trading up : consumer and environmental regulation in a global economy by David Vogel( Book )

19 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this pioneering work, David Vogel integrates environmental, consumer, and trade policy, and explicitly challenges the conventional wisdom that trade liberalization and agreements to promote free trade invariably undermine national health, safety, and environmental standards. Vogel demonstrates that liberal trade policies often produce precisely the opposite effect: that of strengthening regulatory standards

Barriers or benefits? : regulation in transatlantic trade by David Vogel( Book )

9 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Government health, safety, and environmental standards have, in the past two decades, often created barriers to international trade. These non-tariff barriers have become the focus of trade disputes, negotiations, and agreements. This book explains the dynamics of conflict and cooperation over consumer and environmental regulation between the European Union and the United States. It explores the most celebrated cases of transatlantic conflicts over regulatory standards - the EU's beef hormone and legtrap bans, and America's fuel economy regulations - as well as the successes of the two partners in coordinating rules for chemical and drug testing, animal inspection, and the reduction of ozone-depleting chemicals."--BOOK JACKET. "David Vogel argues that transatlantic regulatory conflict has less to do with protectionism and more to do with deeply rooted differences in cultural values and political priorities in Europe and the United States. These differences, he explains, constitute a fundamental and ongoing source of trade conflict between the EU and the U.S."--BOOK JACKET
Ethics in the education of business managers by Charles W Powers( Book )

4 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dynamics of regulatory change : how globalization affects national regulatory policies( Book )

17 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Critics of globalization claim that economic liberalization leads to a lowering of regulatory standards. As capital and corporations move more freely across national boundaries, a race to the bottom results as governments are forced to weaken labor and environmental standards to retain current contracts or attract new business. The essays in this volume argue that, on the contrary, under certain circumstances global economic integration can actually lead to the strengthening of consumer and environmental standards. This volume extends the argument of David Vogel's book Trading Up, which discussed environmental standards, by focusing on the impact of globalization on labor rights, women's rights and capital market regulations--

Transatlantic regulatory cooperation : the shifting roles of the EU, the US and California by David Vogel( Book )

Israel : the dynamics of change and continuity( Book )

9 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays in this volume attempt to move beyond the question of Israel's 'uniqueness' to examine the pace and direction of change of Israel's political, social and economic institutions. Using the tools of comparative analysis, scholars from Israel, the United States and Europe describe the ways in which Israeli society is becoming more like other democratic industrialized societies and on what dimensions Israeli culture and institutions are slowing or resisting such convergence."--Jacket

The diffusion of public and private sustainability regulations : the responses of follower countries by Etsuyo Michida( )

4 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book focuses on the spread of public and private environmental and food safety regulations from Europe and North America to Asia and Africa. It explores the growth of policy diffusion and standard alignment on sustainability observed in non-Western follower countries in a globalizing world. The book examines the role of both developed and developing non-Western countries as followers that adopt food safety, environmental and sustainability policies under different conditions to those of the originating country. Chapters analyse non-state forms of transnational regulation, and how these have diffused to non-Western countries. They showcase how standard alignment efforts lead to multiple localized regulations determined by specific circumstances, highlighting the dilemma in designing policy in an era of globalization. The use of in-depth case studies by renowned experts will make this book an important read for political science and economics scholars interested in trade, standards and international regulation. Policy-makers concerned with issues of sustainability in follower countries will find the book's lessons on how to adapt policies helpful"--Back cover
