Quelles politiques pour attirer les investissements directs étrangers? : une étude de la concurrence entre gouvernements by Charles Oman( Book )

13 editions published in 2000 in French and English and held by 44 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
Corporate Governance in Developing, Transition and Emerging-Market Economies by Charles Oman( )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sound national systems of corporate governance are essential for all countries, including the poorest, to reap the benefits of globalisation. "Corporate governance" comprises the institutions that govern the relationship between people who manage corporations and all others who invest resources in them. The quality of local corporate governance critically affects a country's ability to achieve sustained real productivity growth and the success of its long-term development efforts. Pyramidal corporate-ownership structures, cross shareholdings and multiple share classes are widely used by corporate insiders in the developing world to extract corporate-control rents, exploit other investors and resist pressures to improve corporate governance. The power of corporate insiders and their close relationship with those who exercise political power mean that sound corporate governance requires sound political governance, and vice versa

Retour sur le développement by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in French and held by 36 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.

Scenarios for the World Trading System and Their Implications for Developing Countries by Robert Z Lawrence( Book )

6 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Four scenarios for the global trading system in the 1990s are outlined and their implications for developing countries considered: (i) further development of a GATT-based trading regime; (ii) development of a world of trading blocs -- where the critical issue is not whether they will emerge (they will) but whether they become "building blocks" for a more integrated global system or "stumbling blocks" that cause the system to fragment; (iii) development of a system of managed trade, where political forces would dominate outcomes and which could evolve out of the friction between Japan and the United States or Europe; and (iv) movement beyond GATT and dealing with international problems "at the borders" toward a system of deeper global harmonisation in such areas as competition policy, standards, regulatory practices and technology policies.The answer to the question of which of these scenarios will predominate is of growing importance for developing countries, both because of
Latin America in a Changing Global Environment by Winston Fritsch( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and French and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Latin America's insertion in the world trade system is entering a period of historical change. Driving that change will be the outcome, or failure, of the Uruguay Round of multilateral trade negotiations; the increasing regionalisation of trade relations; and the profound liberalisation in Latin America of national trade regimes, which is also leading to a strong revival in the region of sub-regional integration schemes. The interaction between changes in the region's trade regimes and changes in the global determinants of foreign direct investment in manufacturing are affecting the locational advantages of Latin America as a recipient of direct investment flows as well.The effects on Latin America of regionalisation in Europe and in the Western Hemisphere are, overall, benign. "EC 1992" is likely to have a positive net impact on Latin America's exports unless dramatic, and unlikely, discriminatory measures against third parties are introduced in conjunction with the creation of the
