Do political institutions significantly influence policy outcomes? If so, how and why do they make a difference? These essays explain why the differences between governments and national voting systems with a premier and those with a president shape the fundamentals of politics and policy choices in the United States and Japan. The authors explain outcomes ranging from national budgetary priorities through nuclear-power regulations and military-security commitments. They show that the political leadership in both countries is in control of policy, but that political institutions explain why the bureaucracies of the two countries receive different missions and operating procedures. This volume is a powerful contribution to the fields of comparative politics, comparative political economy, comparative foreign policy, and rational choice

16 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Innovation in information and communication technology (ICT) fuels the growth of the global economy. How ICT markets evolve depends on politics and policy, and since the 1950s periodic overhauls of ICT policy have transformed competition and innovation. For example, in the 1980s and the 1990s a revolution in communication policy (the introduction of sweeping competition) also transformed the information market. Today, the diffusion of internet, wireless, and broadband technology, growing modularity in the design of technologies, distributed computing infrastructures, and rapidly changing business models signal another shift. This pathbreaking examination of ICT from a political economy perspective argues that continued rapid innovation and economic growth required new approaches in global governance that will reconcile diverse interests and enable competition to flourish." "The authors (two of whom were architects of international ICT policy reforms in the 1990s) discuss this crucial turning point in both theoretical and practical terms, analyzing changes in ICT markets, examining three case studies, and considering principles and norms for future global policies. Readers wishing to explore certain topics in greater depth will find an electronic version of the text, additional materials, and virtual appendixes online."--Jacket

The WTO Agreement and Telecommunications Policy Reform by Peter F Cowhey( )

10 editions published in 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: Happily, the revolution going on in the telecommunications industry is benign. Technological change and competition are making possible changes considered improbable even 15 years ago. The WTO Agreement on Basic Telecommunications Services created a new regime for the world market. Now we must pay close attention to regulatory fundamentals. Every country serious about introducing competition finds that the transition from monopoly to competition is both economically rewarding and laden with policy dilemmas. As a new century begins, we have an essentially new market for telecommunications. Digital technology forced a reexamination of the opportunity costs of protecting traditional telecommunications equipment and service suppliers. An inefficient market for telecommunications threatened competitiveness in the computer, software, and information industry markets. Meanwhile, after dislocations created by global stagflation through the early 1980s, developing countries became interested in privatization of state enterprises as a tool of economic reform"and state telephone companies were especially promising targets for privatization. Those countries began exploring options for allowing selective competition, as phone companies in major industrial countries began looking to foreign markets for new business opportunities. The WTO Agreement on Basic Telecommunications Services created a new regime for the world market. Now we must pay close attention to regulatory fundamentals: Low barriers to entry in the market for communications services; Effective rebalancing of rates for services during the market transition; Strong interconnection policies; The creation of independent regulatory authorities with the resources and power necessary to foster competition and safeguard consumer welfare. Cowhey and Klimenko assess how developing and transition economies have fared in profiting from changes in the telecommunications market. They also examine the policy challenges that remain, paying special attention to the global market and regulatory milieu fostered by the 1997 WTO agreement. They ask what this latest transformation has taught us about wise management of this vital part of the world economy's infrastructure. They focus on the economics of managing the transition to competition, the design of proper regulatory policies and processes, and the embedding of domestic telecommunications in the world market. This paper"a product of Trade, Development Research Group"is part of a larger effort in the group to help developing countries formulate negotiating positions for WTO talks.

Testing theories of regime change : hegemonic decline or surplus capacity?( )

2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two theories (theory of "hegemonic stability; theory of "surplus capacity") explain the dynamics determining the trade and investment regimes for a given economic sector. The case of the world automobile industry seems to show that theory of surplus capacity offers the better prediction and explanation for the timing of the developed countries' responses to the rise of surplus capacity but also the rise of protectionist measures by the late 1970s.--SCAD summary

A new trade order( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The post-1945 free-trade regime is giving way to an emerging "market access" regime that is more flexible about border barriers but more demanding about "fair competition" policies and about access for investment. In this new commercial environment, free trade and protectionism are proving to be a false dichotomy. As corporations globalize and create elaborate commercial partnerships, governments have to create a new global framework and tools for managing world commerce. In the market access regime, there will be roles for expanded industry codes, bilateral, minilateral and regional bargaining - all coordinated by a reformed General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT). The order of the day will be multilateralism from the bottom up.--SCAD summary
