Policy competition for foreign direct investment : a study of competition among governments to attract FDI by Charles Oman ( Book )
21 editions published in 2000 in 3 languages and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Competition for foreign direct investment has been neglected as a subject of research. Yet many claim that such competition is having deleterious effects, such as lowering governments' standards of protection of the environment and workers' rights.This book looks at the evidence and assesses the impact of competition among governments to attract FDI. It finds little evidence directly to support fears of a "global race to the bottom" in labour and environmental standards. The widespread use of investment incentives, however, in OECD and developing countries alike, tends to be bad for government transparency and accountability. This is highly detrimental both to economic policy making and to the construction of democratic institutions in developing countries. The author proposes a shift away from incentive-based policies for attracting FDI towards a rules-based approach on both a national and international level

Uses and abuses of governance indicators by Christiane Arndt ( Book )
19 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rapidly rising attention to the quality of governance in developing countries is driving explosive growth in the use of governance "indicators" by international investors, donors of official development assistance, development analysts and academics. This study helps them find their way through the jungle of existing governance indicators, and shows how they tend to be widely misused both in international comparisons and in tracking changes in individual countries. It also explains recent developments in the supply of governance indicators, arguing that while there will never be one perfect governance indicator, the production and use of more transparent governance indicators will better serve the needs of users and developing countries alike. "Highly informative and equally persuasive." -Adam Przeworski, Carroll and Milton Petrie Professor of Politics, New York University "Should be required reading by all who publish or use governance indicators, especially those who are making policy or offering policy advice." -John D. Sullivan, Executive Director, Center for International Private Enterprise "Given the proliferation of governance indicators, Arndt and Oman offer a welcome assessment of how existing studies are best interpreted and used by scholars, aid agencies, governments and businesses. This careful appraisal of present knowledge will be the basis for launching the next round of inquires." -Hilton L. Root, Former U.S. Treasury Department Official, Author of Capital and Collusion, Princeton University Press. "A seminal study. Extremely thorough. Should reach a very wide audience" -François Roubaud, Director of Research, Développement Institutions et Analyses de Long terme (DIAL)
Development is back by Jorge Braga de Macedo ( Book )
11 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Achieving the economic development of poor countries remains, even in the third millennium, a formidable challenge which increasingly preoccupies OECD countries. The Organisation's Development Centre was founded in 1962 as one means to study and to try to confront the problems of comparative development and to relate them to experiences in the more advanced economies. This book provides a compendium of that experience and looks forward to future policies and strategies which might provide some solutions to the problems facing developing countries. Some reflections are also included on a remark
Quelles politiques pour attirer les investissements directs étrangers? : une étude de la concurrence entre gouvernements by Charles Oman ( Book )
10 editions published in 2000 in French and English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La concurrence à laquelle se livrent les gouvernements pour attirer les IDE est un sujet de recherche qui a reçu peu d'attention jusqu'à présent. Pourtant, nombreux sont ceux qui estiment que ce phénomène a des effets néfastes, en ce qu'il conduit les pouvoirs publics à faire passer au second plan les normes de protection de l'environnement ou les droits des travailleurs. Cet ouvrage s'attache aux faits et évalue l'impact de la concurrence entre gouvernements pour attirer les IDE. Cette analyse n'apporte pas directement la preuve qu'on assiste à un recul généralisé des normes de travail et d'environnement. Toutefois, le recours massif aux incitations à l'investissement, dans les pays de l'OCDE comme dans les pays en développement, ne joue pas en faveur de la transparence et de la responsabilité des autorités à l'égard du public, ce qui est hautement préjudiciable à l'élaboration des politiques économiques et à l'édification d'institutions démocratiques dans les pays en développement. L'auteur propose d'opter pour une approche basée sur des règles nationales et internationales, plutôt que de chercher à attirer les IDE par des mesures fondées sur des incitations

Retour sur le développement by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ( Book )
3 editions published in 2002 in French and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Assurer le développement économique des pays pauvres demeure, même au troisième millénaire, un formidable défi qui préoccupe de plus en plus les pays de l'OCDE. Depuis sa création en 1962, le Centre de Développement de l'Organisation étudie les problèmes de développement dans une perspective comparative et tente d'y trouver des solutions en s'appuyant sur le vécu des économies les plus avancées. Cet ouvrage rend compte de la somme d'expériences ainsi acquise et s'interroge sur les politiques et stratégies qui pourraient, à l'avenir, contribuer à remédier aux problèmes des pays en développement. Il montre aussi comment cette institution a remarquablement bien su évoluer et se transformer pour toujours mieux accorder son action aux efforts déployés, par l'ensemble de l'OCDE, en faveur des pays, régions et populations les plus démunis. Cet ouvrage est adapté à la prescription. Les enseignants intéressés peuvent demander un specimen et une remise de 50% sera accordée aux étudiants concernés.

Corporate Governance and National Development by Charles Oman ( )
9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Corporate governance matters for national development. Case studies of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, India, Malaysia and South Africa suggest that it has a role of growing importance to play in helping to increase the flow of financial capital to firms in developing countries. Equally important are the potential benefits of improved corporate governance for overcoming barriers, including the actions of vested interest groups, to achieving sustained productivity growth. Improved corporate governance, however, cannot be considered in isolation. In the financial sector, attention must also be given to measures to strengthen the banking sector, and a country's financial institutions as a whole. In the 'real' sector, close attention must be given to competition policy and sector-specific regulatory reform.Forces working in favour of improved corporate governance in developing countries include those operating both on the demand and on the supply side of domestic and international
