Governance in a globalizing world ( )
17 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 1,829 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Far from being another short-lived buzzword, "globalization" refers to real changes. These changes have profound impacts on culture, economics, security, the environment -- and hence on the fundamental challenges of governance. This book asks three fundamental questions: How are patterns of globalization currently evolving? How do these patterns affect governance? And how might globalism itself be governed? The first section maps the trajectory of globalization in several dimensions -- economic, cultural, environmental, and political. For example, Graham Allison speculates about the impact on national and international security, and William C. Clark develops and evaluates the concepts of "environmental globalization." The second section examines the impact of globalization on governance within individual nations (including China, struggling countries in the developing world, and the industrialized democracies) and includes Elaine Kamarck's assessment of global trends in public-sector reform. The third section discusses efforts to improvise new approaches to governance, including the role of non-governmental institutions, the global dimensions of information policy, and Dani Rodrik's speculation on global economic governance

Governance amid bigger, better markets ( )
8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Annotation Changing markets are challenging governance. The growing scale, reach, complexity, and popular legitimacy of market institutions and market players are re-opening old questions about the role of the public sector and redefining what it means to govern well. This volume -- the latest publication from the Visions of Governance in the 21st Century program at the Kennedy School of Government -- explores the way evolving markets alter the pursuit of cherished public goals. John D. Donahue and Joseph S. Nye, Jr. frame the inquiry with an essay on governing well in an age of ascendant markets. Other contributors (all from Harvard's Kennedy School unless otherwise indicated) address specific areas of market governance in individual chapters: Joseph P. Newhouse on the medical marketplace, Jose Gomez-Ibaqez and John R. Meyer on transportation, William Hogan on electric power, Paul E. Peterson on K12 education, L. Jean Camp on information networks, Akash Deep and Guido Schaefer (Vienna University of Economics & Business Administration) on federal deposit insurance, Frederick Schauer on "the marketplace of ideas," Anna Greenberg on the "marketization" of politics, David M. Hart on the politics of high-tech industry, Viktor Mayer-Schvnberger on information law, John D. Donahue and Richard J. Zeckhauser on the challenges posed by fast-changing markets, and Mark Moore on the spread of market ideology

Ports in a storm public management in a turbulent world by John D Donahue( )
10 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 949 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Focusing diverse conceptual lenses on a single high-stakes management task, this book addresses enhancing port security across the United States. The case of U.S. Coast Guard Captain Suzanne Englebert and her leadership of efforts to secure America's ports after the September 11 attacks is the main pivot point; her actions are examined from varied conceptual vantage points, sometimes critiquing questionable calls but more often celebrating her initiative, creativity, persistence, and skill. The authors use her case as a testing ground for the eclectic intellectual constructs they have been developing to guide public managers

Disunited states by John D Donahue( Book )
6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Disunited States, John D. Donahue contends that despite its broad appeal, letting Washington fade and the states take the lead is a dubious strategy for reform. It reflects a misreading of America's history, a warped view of its bedrock values, and a false analogy to the virtues of competition and decentralization in the private sector. At worst, he argues, America's willing disintegration within an integrating world economy will be recorded among history's monumental follies. At best, devolution will prove to be a detour on America's path to renewal. Donahue shows that shifting power toward the states will do much less than advocates promise to boost efficiency and accelerate innovation - and much more than they admit to undercut national interests and corrode America's sense of commonwealth. Addressing controversial topics as diverse as welfare reform, school funding, legalized gambling, and interstate bidding for business investment, he weaves a coherent case that isolated action by competitive state governments, not excessive centralization, poses the graver threat to Americans' most cherished goals. The ascendancy of the states cannot relieve us of the need to confront our problems - growing inequality, eroding trust in government, and an imperiled middle-class culture - as a nation. The genius of the founders was to forge a single vital nation out of the several separate states, and Disunited States reveals that the road to national division - the road not taken by Madison, Hamilton, Jefferson, or Washington - may turn out to lead us not toward restored greatness, but away from it
Collaborative governance : private roles for public goals in turbulent times by John D Donahue( Book )
11 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
All too often government lacks the skill, the will, and the wallet to meet its missions. Schools fall short of the mark while roads and bridges fall into disrepair. Health care costs too much and delivers too little. Budgets bleed red ink as the cost of services citizens want outstrips the taxes they are willing to pay. Collaborative Governance is the first book to offer solutions by demonstrating how government at every level can engage the private sector to overcome seemingly insurmountable problems and achieve public goals more effectively. John Donahue and Richard Zeckhauser show how the p
The warping of government work by John D Donahue( Book )
4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The divergent paths of public and private employment have intensified a long-standing pattern: elite workers spurn public jobs, while less skilled workers cling to government work as a refuge from a harsh private economy. The first trend creates a chronic talent deficit in the public sector. The second trend makes the government workplace rigid and resistant to change. And both contribute to shortfalls in public-sector performance." "The Warping of Government Work documents government's isolation from the rest of the American economy and arrays the stark choices we confront for narrowing, or accommodating, the divide between public and private work."--BOOK JACKET
