Capitalism by Paul Bowles( Book )

21 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and Italian and held by 751 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a guide to thinking about capitalism, both as an ideology and as an economic system. It asks: what are the central, unchanging features of capitalism? How does capitalism vary from place to place and over time? Does capitalism improve our lives? Is capitalism a system which is "natural" and "free"? Or is it unjust and unstable? And what about today's global capitalism? Answers to these questions and many more are sought through an analysis of the life of this world-shaping idea and of the writings of leading thinkers such as Adam Smith, Milton Friedman, Francis Fukuyama, John Maynard Keynes and Karl Marx. The book concludes by arguing that the advocates of global capitalism have erred and that, without change, we are heading for an impoverished future."--BOOK JACKET

National currencies and globalization : endangered specie? by Paul Bowles( Book )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul Bowles provides an innovative and systematic analysis of the implications of theories of globalization for national currencies. He critically examines whether, as a result, the world is heading for fewer currencies. He argues that the main "force of globalization" which is endangering national currencies is that of globalization as "neoliberal globalism." However, there is no single neoliberal position on money and so the "contingent" nature of neoliberalism explains why this particular force of globalization operates more strongly in some countries than others. This is demonstrated in case studies of four systemically significant currencies, namely, those of Australia, Canada, Mexico, and Norway." "National Currencies and Globalization will be of interest to researchers and students of International Political Economy, Politics, Economics, and Finance."--BOOK JACKET
Globalization and labour in China and India : impacts and responses( Book )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Globalization has pushed China and India to the centre of the stage but what has been the impact on workers in these countries? This book demonstrates the complexity of the processes and responses at play. There are signs that both states are shifting their role in a 'counter movement from above'. But will this be enough to quell the social unrest?
Japan after the economic miracle : in search of new directions by Paul Bowles( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Japan comes to grips with a decade of economic malaise after its spectacular post-war growth record, how will Japanese society react? Contributors to this volume examine the challenges ahead for Japan in the fields of politics, economics, sociology, environment and business. This multidisciplinary inquiry looks for areas of continuity and for new directions in government, business and social policy and practice. Also examined is how Western students should approach the study of Japan; what new directions should institutions take to ensure that students learn about the `real' Japan? Written by Canadian academics, the articles in this volume will be of interest to academics and policy-makers studying or teaching about contemporary Japan
International trade and neoliberal globalism : towards re-peripheralisation in Australia, Canada and Mexico? by Paul Bowles( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

International trade must be analysed within the historical context within which it occurs. Behind the statistics on trade flows lie power structures, class interests and international hierarchies. These change over time and how countries respond to them has critical implications for their citizen's well-being. In this book, the history of trade in Australia, Canada and Mexico is analysed. Trade agreements are analysed in detail to explore the new forms that dependence and subordination have taken.Arguing that the free trade agreements are significantly biased in favour of the United States, the contributors analyse how each of the three countries are being subject to specific forms of re-peripheralisation and examine possible alternatives for a progressive future based on an integration in the global economy which enhances, rather than limits, democracy and social justice. By providing a historical and critical account of trade policy in the three countries, the book provides a welcome antidote to the historical accounts of free trade supporters

In each case, an analysis of the present situation is provided, followed by an analysis of the impact of the proposed mergers on the current situation (in particular, whether accessibility is likely to be enhanced, remain unchanged, or decreased). The cases cover access by those living in small or remote communities; low income individuals; small businesses; and Aboriginal groups. The final section discusses market and policy responses to the problems which may be caused by the proposed mergers in terms of access to financial services and access to capital. Appendices include a table showing population, average income, and distribution of financial institutions in British Columbia communities

The sheltering sky ; Let it come down ; The spider's house by Paul Bowles( Book )

1 edition published in 1949 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Paul Bowles had already established himself as an important American composer when, at the age of 38, he published The Sheltering Sky and became widely recognized as one of the most powerful writers of the postwar period. By the time of his death in 1999 he had become a unique and legendary figure in modern literary culture. From his base in Tangier he produced novels, stories, and travel writings in which exquisite surfaces and violent undercurrents mingle. Bowles - who once told an interviewer, "I've always wanted to get as far as possible from the place where I was born"--Charts the collisions between "civilized" exiles and unfamiliar societies that they can never really grasp. In fiction of slowly gathering menace, he achieves effects of horror and dislocation with an elegantly spare style and understated wit. This Library of America volume, containing his first three novels, with its companion Collected Stories and Later Writings, is the first annotated edition of Bowles' work, offering the full range of his literary achievement: the portrait of an outsider who was one of the essential American writers of the last half century." "The Sheltering Sky (1949), which remains Bowles' most celebrated work, describes the unraveling of a young, sophisticated, and adventuresome married couple as they make their way into the Sahara. In a prose style of meticulous calm and stunning visual precision, Bowles tracks Port and Kit Moresby on a journey through the desert that culminates in death and madness." "In Let It Come Down (1952), Bowles plots the doomed trajectory of Nelson Dyar, a New York bank teller who comes to Tangier in search of a different life and ends up giving in to this darkest impulses. Rich in descriptions of the corruption and decadence of the International Zone in the last days before Moroccan independence, Bowles' second novel is an alternately comic and horrific account of a descent into nihilism." "The Spider's House (1955), the longest and most complex of Bowles' novels, is set against the end of French rule in Morocco. Its characters - ranging from a Moroccan boy gifted with spiritual healing power to an American writer who regrets the passing of traditional ways - are caught up in the clash between colonial and nationalist factions, and are forced to confront cultural gulfs widened by political violence."--Jacket
