Banks, finance and investments in Germany by J. S. S Edwards( )

9 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 1,600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book analyses the widely-held view of the merits of the 'bank-based' German system of finance for investment, and shows that this view is not supported by evidence from the post-war period. The institutional features of the German system are such that universal banks have control of voting rights at shareholders' meetings due to proxy votes, and they also have representation on companies' supervisory boards. These features are claimed to have two main benefits. One is that the German system reduces asymmetric information problems, enabling banks to supply more external finance to firms at a lower cost, and thus increasing investment. The other is that German banks are able to mould and control managements of firms on behalf of shareholders, and thus ensure that firms are run efficiently. This book assesses whether empirical evidence backs up these claims, and shows that the merits of the German system are largely myths

European migration : what do we know? by Centre for Economic Policy Research (Great Britain)( )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 1,294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book brings together in-depth analyses of migration issues in major European countries, and compares evidence with more countries that have traditionally seen the most immigration. First, it studies migration streams since World War II, and reviews major migration policy regimes. Second, it summarizes the empirical evidence measuring wages, unemployment, and occupational choices. Third, it investigates how migrants affect the labour markets of their host countries, and evaluates econometric studies into the wage and employment consequences of immigration." "This important work is an invaluable resource for academic labour economists, geographers, and sociologists, as well as policy makers concerned with immigration."--Jacket

The economics of organised crime( Book )

7 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first book to use economic theory in the analysis of all the different aspects of organised crime: the origins, the internal organisation, market behaviour and deterrence policies. The theory of rent-seeking is adopted to help understand the origin of criminal organisations from a state of anarchy, while modern industrial organisation theory is used to explain the design of internal rules in the organised crime sector. The market behaviour of organised crime is analysed taking into account its double nature of competitive firm and of monopolist on rule-making. Finally, the 'crime and economics' approach is applied to the analysis of corruption that occurs when the organised crime sector and the government collude to exploit their monopoly on rule-making. This book provides a careful balance between theoretical and institutional or empirical contributions. Each chapter outlines the normative results of the analysis in order to design more sophisticated deterrence policies

International economic policy coordination by Willem H Buiter( Book )

4 editions published between 1984 and 1986 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume, based on a conference organised jointly by the Centre for Economic Policy Research and the National Bureau of Economic Research, examines recent developments in the study of international economic policy coordination. Eight papers were presented, and the meeting concluded with a panel discussion on the prospects for international policy coordination. In the past two years, there has been a revival of interest in the study of the international coordination of economic policy, no doubt encouraged by the current debate about the mix of monetary and fiscal policy in the United States and Europe. This volume presents some of the best current research on this important topic. The papers focus on several issues of importance in determining the desirability of international policy coordination: the nature of the transmission effects by which one country's policies affect another country; the trade-off between the current and future effects of policies, and the credibility of government policy when undertaken unilaterally or coordinated internationally
European financial integration by Centre for Economic Policy Research (Great Britain)( Book )

7 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Capital markets are affected at least as much as goods markets by the European Community's drive for greater economic integration. The removal of capital controls on 1 July 1990 has far-reaching consequences for the EMS and for cross-border investment, and plans for economic and monetary union foreshadow fundamental upheavals at the heart of the financial system, in central banking and monetary and fiscal policy. This volume reports the proceedings of a conference on European financial integration held in Rome in January 1990, which was organised by the Centre for Economic Policy Research and the Instituto Mobiliare Italiano. In this volume, leading international experts examine the implications of integration for the structure and regulation of capital markets, the changing relationships between the corporate and banking sectors throughout the Community, the distortionary effects of differing taxation policies among member states and possible means of overcoming them, and alternative routes to European monetary union

Establishing a central bank : issues in Europe and lessons from the US by Matthew B Canzoneri( Book )

7 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Previous efforts to create a European Central Bank (ECB) have stimulated debate on topics for research into the political economy of the European Community's institutions. These include the exact division of responsibilities of national governments and the ECB - especially concerning exchange rate policy; the need for and design of constraints on national fiscal policies; and the nature of the transition from adjustable parities and national monetary policies to irrevocably fixed parities and a single European monetary policy. The book also considers the implications of EMU for the international monetary system - for the use of the ECU as a reserve currency and for policy coordination among the G-7 countries. The volume thus provides a comprehensive examination of the issues that will be decisive for Europe in its choice of monetary institutions
Economic policy and technological performance by Partha Dasgupta( Book )

7 editions published between 1987 and 2005 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A growing awareness of the contribution that technological change has made and can make to economic and social welfare has brought science and technology policy to the forefront of public discussions in both national and international forums. The papers in this volume, first presented at a Centre for Economic Policy Research conference held in London in September 1986 on the Economics of Technology Policy, represent a wide ranging contribution to the debate. Generally aimed at the non-specialist, the papers cover both the experience and application of policy as well as providing in-depth discussions of the rationale for intervention in the process of technological change. The authors include both policy-makers (Barber, Ergas and White) and the academic economists (Dasgupta, David, Griliches, Lyons, Pakes, Stiglitz and Stoneman). The volume will be of particular interest to policy-makers and their advisers concerned with technology-related issues and will contribute significantly to undergraduate and graduate courses in the same area
Banking union for Europe : risks and challenges by Viral V Acharya( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While a banking union for Europe has been discussed by economists since even before the 2007 crisis, the issue has now moved up to the top of the eurozone agenda. But what kind of banking union? For whom? Financed how? And managed by whom? These questions are explored in a new Vox eBook comprisings 15 papers on the topic by leading economists from both sides of the Atlantic. CEPS Director Daniel Gros contributed a chapter entitled "The Single European Market in Banking in decline--ECB to the rescue?" The book edited by Thorsten Beck, Professor of Economics and Chairman of the European Banking Center at Tilburg University, and published by VoxEU
Market integration, regionalism and the global economy by Richard E Baldwin( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study of the nature and the policy implication of changes in the global economy in relationship to the process of regional integration, conducted using the newest techniques of economic analysis. The principal message drawn from these analytical and policy insights is that in a world characterised by trade distortions and nonlinearities, regional integration may or may not foster global integration, and may or may not advance regional or global convergence. The key is good economic policy based on sound economic analysis. Part one of the volume covers three international trade policy issues: regionalism and multilateralism; the political economy of trade policy; and trade income inequality. Part two (chapters 7-11) focuses on three 'domestic' problems faced by regional groups: labour migration; exchange rate arrangements; and real convergence
