Developing nations and the politics of global integration by Stephan Haggard( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 636 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, part of the Integrating National Economies series, Stephan Haggard examines the position of the developing countries in the international trade regime. Focusing on the nations of East and Southeast Asia and Latin America, Haggard explores the causes of economic liberalization policies in the developing nations. He argues that various international constraints, such as economic shocks and political pressures from the economically advanced nations, pushed developing countries to open up to international competition and to pursue economic relations with advanced industrial states
Development, democracy, and welfare states : Latin America, East Asia, and Eastern Europe by Stephan Haggard( Book )

12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first book to compare the distinctive welfare states of Latin America, East Asia, and Eastern Europe. Stephan Haggard and Robert Kaufman trace the historical origins of social policy in these regions to crucial political changes in the mid-twentieth century, and show how the legacies of these early choices are influencing welfare reform following democratization and globalization. After World War II, communist regimes in Eastern Europe adopted wide-ranging socialist entitlements while conservative dictatorships in East Asia sharply limited social security but invested in education. In Latin America, where welfare systems were instituted earlier, unequal social security systems favored formal sector workers and the middle class.Haggard and Kaufman compare the different welfare paths of the countries in these regions following democratization and the move toward more open economies. Although these transformations generated pressure to reform existing welfare systems, economic performance and welfare legacies exerted a more profound influence. The authors show how exclusionary welfare systems and economic crisis in Latin America created incentives to adopt liberal social policy reforms, while social entitlements from the communist era limited the scope of liberal reforms in the new democracies of Eastern Europe. In East Asia, high growth and permissive fiscal conditions provided opportunities to broaden social entitlements in the new democracies. This book highlights the importance of placing the contemporary effects of democratization and globalization into a broader historical context

The political economy of the Asian financial crisis by Stephan Haggard( Book )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Asian crisis has sparked a thoroughgoing reappraisal of current international financial norms, the policy prescriptions of the International Monetary Fund, and the adequacy of the existing financial architecture. To draw proper policy conclusions from the crisis, it is necessary to understand exactly what happened and why from both a political and an economic perspective. In this study, renowned political scientist Stephan Haggard examines the political aspects of the crisis in the countries most affected-Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. Haggard focuses on the political economy of the crisis, emphasizing the longer-run problems of moral hazard and corruption, as well as the politics of crisis management and the political fallout that ensued. He looks at the degree to which each government has rewoven the social safety net and discusses corporate and financial restructuring and greater transparency in business-government relations. Professor Haggard provides a counterpoint to the analysis by examining why Shingapore, Taiwan and the Philippines escaped financial calamity
Famine in North Korea : markets, aid, and reform by Stephan Haggard( Book )

21 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning sometime in the early 1990s and extending into 1998, North Korea experienced famine. We estimate that the great North Korean famine killed between six hundred thousand and one million people, between 3 and 5 percent of the entire population of the country. Such events are national traumas that live in the collective memory for generations. Famines produce countless personal tragedies: watching loved ones waste away from hunger and disease; making fateful choices about the distribution of scarce food; migrating to escape the famine's reach; and, all too often, facing the stark reality that these coping strategies are futile. A full understanding of such disasters can only be communicated through their human face: the individual experience of the suffering and humiliation that extreme deprivation brings to its victims. Through refugee accounts, this human face of the North Korean famine is slowly becoming available to us and speaks far more eloquently than we can here
The Politics of finance in developing countries by Stephan Haggard( Book )

8 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Historically, developing countries have been deeply involved in the allocation of financial resources. Yet despite the growing interest in the role of finance in economic development, relatively little attention has been paid to the political dimensions of credit allocation." "This collection of ten original essays explores the politics of finance in eight East Asian and Latin American countries: Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, Chile, Mexico, and Brazil. The essays examine the political and institutional factors that influence the initiation and efficiency of preferential credit policies, as well as the politics of financial market liberalization. The book has implications not only for finance, but for the political economy of growth in East Asia and Latin America and the prospects for effective industrial policies."--Jacket

From Silicon Valley to Singapore : location and competitive advantage in the hard disk drive industry by David G McKendrick( Book )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Developments in the global economy since the 1980s have dramatically increased the availability of industrial investment sites and lowered the cost of relocating core activities. But how should these developments be exploited for competitive advantage? Firms face competing pressures: scale economies and the advantages of proximity push them to concentrate activities in one or only a few locations, while low wages and new markets invite dispersal across several countries. This book examines how location decisions have contributed to the global dominance of US firms in the hard disk drive industry, with research and development located principally in California and manufacturing based in Southeast Asia, particularly in Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia. Beyond the particulars of the disk drive industry, the authors present different perspectives on the sources of industrial leadership, the strategic behaviour of multinational corporations, the geographic evolution of industry, and the creation and endurance of industrial clusters

Reforming the state : fiscal and welfare reform in post-socialist countries( Book )

18 editions published in 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Countries of the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe are entering the second decade of political transformation and economic reform. The first decade involved macroeconomic stabilization, privatization, and development of the basic institutional infrastructure of a market economy. The new policy challenges center on the nature of the social contract between citizens and their governments. These challenges include identifying the appropriate boundaries between the obligations of the public sector and the responsibilities of individual citizens, the range of public goods the government should supply, and who should pay for and benefit from their provision. The essays in this volume, first published in 2001, focus on two interrelated issues: the making of fiscal policy and the provision of citizens' welfare, particularly regarding pensions and health care. The essays emphasize that there is no single model of a market economy; rather, governments and publics face a range of options for restructuring the socialist welfare state
Economic crisis and corporate restructuring in Korea : reforming the chaebol( Book )

19 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Asian business conglomerates have clearly been successful agents of growth, mobilizing capital, borrowing technology from abroad and spearheading Asia's exports. However, these firms have long had a number of organisational and financial weaknesses, including heavy reliance on debt, that make them vulnerable to shocks. Nowhere was this more true than in Korea, where the large corporate groups known as chaebol have dominated the economic landscape. This collection of essays by leading political scientists and economists provides a comprehensive look at the chaebol problem in the wake of the Asian financial crisis. The authors consider the historical evolution of the chaebol and their contribution to the onset of economic turmoil in 1997. The book analyses the government's short-run response to corporate and financial distress, and outlines an agenda for longer-term reform of the financial system, corporate governance and the politics of business-government relations

Witness to transformation : refugee insights into North Korea by Stephan Haggard( Book )

13 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite its nuclear capability, in certain respects North Korea resembles a failed state sitting uneasily atop a shifting internal foundation. This instability is due in part to devastating famine of the 1990s and the state's inability to fulfill the economic obligations that it had assumed, forcing institutions, enterprises, and households to cope with ensuing challenges of maintaining stability with limited cooperation between the Korean government and the international community. The ineffective response to the humanitarian crisis triggered by the famine resulted in outflow of tens of thousands of refugees whose narratives are largely overlooked in evaluating the efficacy of the humanitarian aid program. The authors of this book use extensive surveys with refugees who now reside in China or South Korea to provide extraordinary insight into changing pathways to power, wealth, and status within North Korea. These refugee testimonies provide an invaluable interpretation of the regime, its motivations, and its capabilities and assess the situation on the ground with the rise of inequality, corruption, and disaffection in the decade since the famine. Through these surveys, preeminent North Korean experts Stephan Haggard and Marcus Noland carefully document the country's transition from a centrally planned economy to a highly distorted market economy, characterized by endemic corruption and widening inequality. The authors chart refugees' reactions to current conditions and consider the disparity between the perceived and real benefit of the international humanitarian aid program experienced by this displaced population. Finally, the book examines these refugees' future prospects for integration into a new society--Publisher's description

Dictators and democrats : masses, elites, and regime change by Stephan Haggard( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the 1980s through the first decade of the twenty-first century, the spread of democracy across the developing and post-Communist worlds transformed the global political landscape. What drove these changes and what determined whether the emerging democracies would stabilize or revert to authoritarian rule? Dictators and Democrats takes a comprehensive look at the transitions to and from democracy in recent decades. Deploying both statistical and qualitative analysis, Stephen Haggard and Robert Kaufman engage with theories of democratic change and advocate approaches that emphasize political and institutional factors. While inequality has been a prominent explanation for democratic transitions, the authors argue that its role has been limited, and elites as well as masses can drive regime change. Examining seventy-eight cases of democratic transition and twenty-five reversions since 1980, Haggard and Kaufman show how differences in authoritarian regimes and organizational capabilities shape popular protest and elite initiatives in transitions to democracy, and how institutional weaknesses cause some democracies to fail. The determinants of democracy lie in the strength of existing institutions and the public's capacity to engage in collective action. There are multiple routes to democracy, but those growing out of mass mobilization may provide more checks on incumbents than those emerging from intra-elite bargains. Moving beyond well-known beliefs regarding regime changes, Dictators and Democrats explores the conditions under which transitions to democracy are likely to arise
