Varieties of capitalism : the institutional foundations of comparative advantage by Peter A Hall( Book )

26 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 1,062 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What are the most fundamental differences among the political economies of the developed world? How do national institutional differences condition economic performance, public policy, and social well-being? Will they survive the pressures for convergence generated by globalization and technological change? These have long been central questions in comparative political economy. This book provides a new and coherent set of answers to them. Building on the new economics of organization, the authors develop an important new theory about which differences among national political economies are most significant for economic policy and performance. Drawing on a distinction between 'liberal' and 'coordinated' market economies, they argue that there is more than one path to economic success. Nations need not converge to a single Anglo-American model. They develop a new theory of 'comparative institutional advantage' that transforms our understanding of international trade, offers new explanations for the response of firms and nations to the challenges of globalization, and provides a new theory of national interest to explain the conduct of nations in international relations. The analysis brings the firm back into the centre of comparative political economy. It provides new perspectives on economic and social policy-making that illuminate the role of business in the development of the welfare state and the dilemmas facing those who make economic policy in the contemporary world. Emphasizing the 'institutional complementarities' that link labour relations, corporate finance, and national legal systems, the authors bring interdisciplinary perspectives to bear on issues of strategic management, economic performance, and institutional change. This pathbreaking work sets new agendas in the study of comparative political economy. As such, it will be of value to academics and graduate students in economics, business, and political science, as well as to many others with interests in international relations, social policy-making, and the law."--Publisher's website
Democracy and prosperity : reinventing capitalism through a turbulent century by Torben Iversen( )

15 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 708 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is a widespread view that democracy and the advanced nation-state are in crisis, weakened by globalization and undermined by global capitalism, in turn explaining rising inequality and mounting populism. This book, written by two of the world's leading political economists, argues this view is wrong: advanced democracies are resilient, and their enduring historical relationship with capitalism has been mutually beneficial. For all the chaos and upheaval over the past century--major wars, economic crises, massive social change, and technological revolutions--Torben Iversen and David Soskice show how democratic states continuously reinvent their economies through massive public investment in research and education, by imposing competitive product markets and cooperation in the workplace, and by securing macroeconomic discipline as the preconditions for innovation and the promotion of the advanced sectors of the economy. Critically, this investment has generated vast numbers of well-paying jobs for the middle classes and their children, focusing the aims of aspirational families, and in turn providing electoral support for parties. Gains at the top have also been shared with the middle (though not the bottom) through a large welfare state. Contrary to the prevailing wisdom on globalization, advanced capitalism is neither footloose nor unconstrained: it thrives under democracy precisely because it cannot subvert it. Populism, inequality, and poverty are indeed great scourges of our time, but these are failures of democracy and must be solved by democracy
Unionism, economic stabilization, and incomes policies : European experience by Robert J Flanagan( Book )

11 editions published in 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Macroeconomics and the wage bargain : a modern approach to employment, inflation, and the exchange rate by Wendy Carlin( Book )

17 editions published between 1990 and 2005 in English and Italian and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors present a new treatment of macroeconomics. Its key characteristic is the use of wage bargaining and price-setting under imperfect competition, making product and labour market assumptions closer to the real world
Unions, employers, and central banks : macroeconomic coordination and institutional change in social market economies( Book )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book focuses on some of the most important political-economic changes in advanced industrialized countries over the past two decades, namely, the sharp rise in unemployment in some countries and the growth of inequality in others. Using a variety of methodological approaches, the essays provide different pieces to this puzzle and explain how economic outcomes may be linked to macroeconomic policies and wage-bargaining practices. Focusing on the experiences of Northern European countries, the book also explores the intersection of partisan politics, the international economy, and nationally specific institutions."--Jacket
Macroeconomics : imperfections, institutions, and policies by Wendy Carlin( Book )

15 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and Spanish and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume provides a unified framework for the analysis of short- and medium-run macroeconomics. It develops a core New Keynesian macro model based on imperfect competition and nominal rigidities and shows how this compares with alternatives
Macroeconomics : institutions, instability, and the financial system by Wendy Carlin( Book )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Macroeconomics: Institutions, Instability, and the Financial System integrates the modern monetary framework--based on the 3-equation model of the demand side, the supply side, and the policy maker--with a model of the financial system. The authors comprehensively address the limitations of the mainstream macroeconomic model exposed by the financial crisis and the Eurozone crisis. The text guides the reader through the three principal steps required to integrate the financial system within the macroeconomic model. Every chapter emphasizes how the different actors in the economy behave and interact: what are they trying to achieve and what limits their ability to put their intentions into practice? This is extended to the modelling of growth, where the role of innovation rents in the Schumpeterian model is highlighted. It is essential that students understand previous periods of growth, stability and crisis in preparing for future shocks. With this in mind, the book enables the reader to interpret long run historical data and to compare institutional detail in different eras and across the world. Macroeconomics not only develops the critical thinking skills required for academic success, but ensures that students can analyze data, trends, and policy debates with the confidence necessary for a career in economics or finance. It is essential reading for all those interested in learning more about the current macroeconomic system and the role of financial institutions."--Publisher's description
Tracing the relationship between inequality, crime, and punishment : space, time, and politics( Book )

5 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The question of inequality has moved decisively to the top of the contemporary intellectual agenda. Going beyond Thomas Piketty's focus on wealth, increasing inequalities of various kinds, and their impact on social, political and economic life, now present themselves among the most urgent issues facing scholars in the humanities and the social sciences. Key among these is the relationship between inequality, crime and punishment. The propositions that social inequality shapes crime and punishment, and that crime and punishment themselves cause or exacerbate inequality, are conventional wisdom. Yet, paradoxically, they are also controversial. In this volume, historians, criminologists, lawyers, sociologists and political scientists come together to try to solve this paradox by unpacking these relationships in different contexts

A new Keynesian open economy model for policy analysis by Wendy Carlin( Book )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Macroeconomics without the LM curve" has begun to move advanced undergraduate closed economy macroeconomics teaching models away from the IS/LM approach to simple versions of the New Keynesian models taught in graduate courses and used in central banks. But the equally traditional and antiquated Mundell-Fleming model still dominates undergraduate open economy macroeconomics. We develop a graphical and simplified New Keynesian model of the small open economy to replace it. The model features rational expectations in both the foreign exchange market and the central bank, and is well-suited to analyze how an inflation targeting central bank responds optimally to a variety of shocks. The graphical approach highlights how exchange rate expectations in the open economy impinge on the central bank's decision-making. The basic model assumes the central bank targets domestic inflation and we show how a CPI inflation target modifies the analysis
