Institutional efficiency and its determinants : the role of political factors in economic growth by Silvio Borner( )

19 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New Institutional Economics (NIE) takes a multidisciplinary approach to understanding economic phenomena like growth, efficiency and income distribution. The authors of this book attempt to provide an integrated methodology, hitherto lacking in NIE, that analyses both the impact of institutions on economic development and the determinants that shape institutional quality. Using the case of Argentina, they use the analytical framework developed and explained in the book to test their theoretical hypotheses. They find that their concept of institutional quality and their delineation between economic and political institutions work in practice. In addition, their consideration of particular institutions - democracy and autocracy - and their reflections on the impact of "traditional" legal and cultural frameworks add a dimension to the book that gives it a controversial, but stimulating timeliness. At a time when national governments and international institutions are seeking ways to improve governance and accelerate growth, particularly in the poorer countries, this book provides valuable insights for policy makers and those who advise them. It offers convincing evidence about the quality of institutions as a determining factor in development and suggests how such quality might be improved
Political credibility and economic development by Silvio Borner( Book )

23 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why have the economies of some developing countries fallen back while others have advanced? Why have so many stabilization and structural adjustment programs failed to deliver growth dividends? This book shows that there is a common and valid answer: political credibility defined as the predictability of the institutional rules of the game. This case is not only argued theoretically but also found to be confirmed by empirical analysis. Ten case studies pitting Latin American countries against Southeast Asian ones reveal the sources of political credibility. Economic openness is the necessary precondition, long-term reputation or democratic participation the sufficient one. Despite the seemingly superior strength of authoritarian reputation democratic control is the more successful road

L'efficience institutionnelle et ses déterminants : le rôle des facteurs politiques dans la croissance économique by Frank Bodmer( )

11 editions published in 2004 in French and English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La nouvelle économie institutionnelle (NEI) a, certes, une approche pluridisciplinaire des phénomènes économiques tels que la croissance, l'efficience et la distribution des revenus. Mais les auteurs de cet ouvrage tentent d'appliquer la démarche intégrée qui, jusqu'à présent, faisait défaut à ce type d'approche en analysant à la fois l'influence des institutions sur le développement économique et les facteurs qui déterminent la qualité institutionnelle. Prenant le cas de l'Argentine, ils appliquent le cadre d'analyse développé et exposé dans l'étude pour tester leurs hypothèses théoriques. Ils observent que leur concept de qualité institutionnelle et la distinction qu'ils font entre institutions économiques et institutions politiques sont validés dans la pratique. En outre, leur regard sur certaines structures institutionnelles particulières - démocratie et autocratie - et leurs réflexions sur l'influence des " traditions " juridiques et culturelles ajoutent une dimension supplémentaire à l'ouvrage qui peut prêter à controverse mais confère à l'étude une actualité stimulante. A un moment où les gouvernements nationaux et les institutions internationales s'efforcent de trouver les moyens d'améliorer la gouvernance et d'accélérer la croissance, en particulier dans les pays pauvres, ce travail fournit des éclairages précieux aux responsables gouvernementaux et à ceux qui les conseillent. Il apporte des éléments convaincants sur la qualité institutionnelle comme facteur déterminant du développement et montre comment, précisément, la qualité institutionnelle pourrait être améliorée

Wohlstand ohne Wachstum eine Schweizer Illusion by Silvio Borner( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in German and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seit gut einem Jahrzehnt trägt die Schweiz die rote Laterne in der Wachstumsrangliste der OECD-Staaten - mit spürbaren Folgen. Einige EU-Länder sind bereits daran, die Schweiz wohlstandsmässig zu überholen. Die Schweiz braucht eine Trendwende, nicht zuletzt, um den stark gewachsenen Sozialstaat weiter finanzieren zu können. Doch das verbreitete Gefühl eines immer noch hohen Wohlstands steht Reformen im Wege. Dieses Buch ergründet die Ursachen der chronischen Wachstumsschwäche. Ausführliche Modellanalsen verweisen nicht nur auf teilweise überraschende wirtschaftspolitische Defizite, sondern auch auf Schwachstellen im politischen System
