Economic justice in an unfair world : toward a level playing field by Ethan B Kapstein( )

26 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kapstein also addresses justice in labor, migration, and investment, in each case defending an approach that concentrates on nation-states and their unique social compacts. Clearly written for all those with a stake in contemporary debates over poverty reduction and development, the book provides an analysis of what the international community can reasonably do to build a global economy that works to the advantage of every nation."--Jacket

Sharing the wealth : workers and the world economy by Ethan B Kapstein( Book )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and Italian and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kapstein builds a new idea of economic relations between capital and labor, one that strengthens rather than weakens national competitiveness in the process. Sharing the Wealth sheds light on the global economic forces that so often seem beyond our control, and it reminds us of the opportunity and obligation we have to ensure that the benefits of globalization are distributed in a way that society views as fair to all its members."--Jacket
The fate of young democracies by Ethan B Kapstein( Book )

15 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The recent backlash against democracy in such countries as Bolivia, Venezuela, Russia, and Georgia poses renewed concerns about the viability of this regime type in the developing world. Drawing on a data set of every democratization episode since 1960, this book explores the underlying reasons for backsliding and reversal in the world's fledgling democracies and offers some proposals with respect to what the international community might do to help these states stay on track toward political stability. Revising earlier scholarship on this topic, which focused on poor economic performance as the leading cause of democratic reversal, Ethan B. Kapstein and Nathan Converse argue that the core of the problem is found in the weak institutions that have been built in much of the developing world that allow leaders to abuse their power. Understanding the underlying reasons for democratic failure is essential if we are to offer policy recommendations that have any hope of making a difference on the ground."--Jacket

AIDS drugs for all : social movements and market transformations by Ethan B Kapstein( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on a rich set of interviews and surveys, this book shows how the global AIDS treatment advocacy movement helped millions in the developing world gain access to life-saving medication. The movement achieved this by transforming the market for AIDS drugs from one which was 'low volume, high price' to one based on access for all. The authors suggest that a movement's ability to transform markets depends upon whether: (1) markets are contestable; (2) they have framed their arguments to resonate across their target audiences; (3) the movement itself has a coherent goal; (4) the costs are low, or the benefit-to-cost ratio is favourable; and, finally, (5) institutions are present to reward continued achievement of the new market principle. These insights are applied to a range of other cases including malaria, maternal mortality, water/diarrheal disease, non-communicable diseases, education, climate change, the ivory trade, sex trafficking and the Atlantic slave trade

Seeds of stability : land reform and US foreign policy by Ethan B Kapstein( Book )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under what conditions do the governments of developing countries manage to reform their way out of political and economic instability? When are they instead overwhelmed by the forces of social conflict? What role can great powers play in shaping one outcome or the other? This book is among the first to show in detail how the United States has used foreign economic policy, including foreign aid, as a tool for intervening in the developing world. Specifically, it traces how the United States promoted land reform as a vehicle for producing political stability. By showing where that policy proved stabilizing, and where it failed, a nuanced account is provided of how the local structure of the political economy plays a decisive role in shaping outcomes on the ground

11 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dividing the spoils : pensions, privatization and reform in Russia's transition by Ethan B Kapstein( Book )

9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The gains from the transition in post-communist Russia were captured by the new managerial class, which won rents from the state in the form of privatized enterprises, state subsidies, credits, and opportunities for tax evasion. Those rents reduced state revenues that could have supported social policy-- including pension reform, which in turn could have fueled industrial restructuring. With neither pension reform nor industrial restructuring, Russia's economy has continued to shrink
Virtuous circles? : human capital formation, economic development and the multinational enterprise by Ethan B Kapstein( )

7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, academics and policy makers have emphasised the role of human capital formation in economic development. By creating human capital, countries become more attractive to private investment, both domestic and foreign. And through such investment, countries grow and prosper.Yet the empirical evidence in support of this theory remains elusive. While foreign direct investment (FDI) has multiplied in many countries around the world since the 1980s, its effects on growth are uncertain. Why is that the case?In this paper I argue that political economy pathways exist that may lead countries away from sustained growth. In countries that lack well-developed capital and education markets, many otherwise qualified citizens may be denied the basic skills they need in order to contribute fully to the nation's economic development. As societies become divided, they become more conflicted, and this conflict dampens growth, irrespective of the level of foreign direct investment
