The handbook of globalisation by Jonathan Michie( Book )

36 editions published between 2003 and 2019 in English and German and held by 1,003 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Globalisation is an issue that has been high on the research agenda for several years, spawning a vast and at times unwieldy literature. A concept often ill-defined, it has generated a plethora of unresolved and fiercely contested questions, the nature of which depends on which side of the ideological divide one stands. With original contributions from the leading commentators in the field and an overarching introduction from the editor, the concerns of this major new Handbook are two-fold; firstly, to redefine the concept of globalisation and dispel the haze that surrounds it by a systematic and thorough examination of the debate; secondly, to push out the frontiers of current critical thinking on the role and impact of globalisation, on the winners and losers in the process, and on the implications for society, the economy and governance, offering a genuinely interdisciplinary perspective"--Dust jacket
Wages in the business cycle : an empirical and methodological analysis by Jonathan Michie( )

22 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in English and held by 840 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During prolonged economic recessions when the normal cyclical expansion of output fails to materialize, the topic of the 'cyclical behaviour of wages' has emerged as an area of debate. In 1985, the British Treasury claimed that academic studies into the cyclical behaviour of wages demonstrated that a cut in wages would increase employment. Wages in the Business Cycle contests this argument by presenting the results of original, empirical work which illustrates the absence of any systematic empirical regularity to wage movements over the business cycle. Jonathan Michie argues that the re-emergence of this debate must be seen within the context of the theory of the 'labour demand function', representing an attempt to challenge the Keynesian theoretical assumptions implicit in the bulk of applied macro economic work up to the late 1970s."--Bloomsbury Publishing

"Managing the Global Economy will be essential reading for students, analysts and policy makers wanting to get to grips with current developments in the international economy."--Jacket

Presenting original theoretical and empirical research by leading international experts in an accessible style, Innovation Policy will be vital reading for researchers and students and of use for public policy professionals."--Jacket

Contracts, co-operation, and competition : studies in economics, management, and law by S. F Deakin( Book )

13 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The economic theory of contract is being reshaped in ways which resonate with the findings of socio-legal contract scholars and of industrial economists and sociologists in the Marshallian tradition, who emphasise the 'embeddedness' of organizations within their social and cultural environment. Contractual co-operation is seen as depending on institutional factors which serve to enhance 'trust', and arrangements which in the past were criticized as the product of collusion are being reassessed as potentially efficient responses to market failure. An active debate has begun on how instruments of public policy can best be deployed to arrive at an effective balance between co-operation and competition. This affects both the competitiveness of private sector organizations and the success of deregulatory reforms in the public sphere. These issues are explored within four main areas: developments in private-sector contracting; contract and organization in the public sector; the economics of contract law; and competitiveness and competition policy
Personal knowledge management, leadership styles, and organisational performance : a case study of the healthcare industry in Thailand by Vissanu Zumitzavan( )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This research scrutinises the connection between the demographics of respondents, their personal knowledge management (PKM) skills, their leadership styles and the performance and size of their organisations: it investigates to what degree the PKM and leadership styles of top management are advantageous to the healthcare industry. Survey questionnaires were distributed to 1,000 top managers of hospitals in Thailand, and responses were received from 539. Various statistical techniques were applied to test our hypotheses, including descriptive statistics, correlations and multiple regression analysis. Results indicate that PKM and leadership styles are statistically associated with positive organisational performance. The findings also show that the relationship between PKM and organisational performance is mediated by leadership styles

Why the social sciences matter by Jonathan Michie( Book )

11 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today's society is on the brink of new possibilities, yet it is also beset with challenges and problems. Banks are in trouble. Climate change threatens. The population is increasingly elderly. New health technologies pose new ethical questions. Globalization has changed the way we live. Public issues and private troubles are as interlaced as ever. And, big or small, problems need solutions based on accurate and suitable information, and on a proper understanding of the issues involved. This volume, consisting of specially-commissioned essays on topics of prime concern by leading social scientists at the cutting-edge of their respective research fields, takes a considered look at a range of problems facing society today, and considers possible solutions. It illuminates why a social scientific understanding gives us a grasp on a topic that would not be provided by those working in the fields of science, humanities or the arts; in other words, this book makes plain what is distinctive and thus invaluable about a social science perspective. Social scientists may be forgiven for being troubled by UK trends in funding undergraduate training and the 'impact' agenda in research. This volume, with the support of the Academy of Social Sciences, is timely in not only analysing pressing problems, but also helping make the case regarding the indispensability of the social sciences, and the rigour which the social sciences can inspire in our understanding of the world."--Publisher's website
