Capitalism by Paul Bowles ( Book )
19 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 770 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

Globalization and labour in China and India : impacts and responses ( Book )
14 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 212 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 analyzes this question and demonstrates the complexity of the processes and responses at play. Bringing together expert analyzes of both rural and urban areas, the book highlights the ways in which local and national policies as well as global actors have an impact on labour. There are signs that the state in both countries is shifting its role in a 'counter movement from above' as shown by the National Employment Guarantee Act in India and the Labour Contract Law in China. But will this be enough to quell the social unrest caused by globalization's dislocating and inequalizing effects, especially after the global financial crisis? This book shows how state responses are unlikely to be up to the task and what role labour in other countries could play. -- Back cover
National currencies and globalization : endangered specie? by Paul Bowles ( Book )
14 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 208 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

Accessibility and bank mergers in British Columbia a report by Paul Bowles ( Book )
3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This document analyzes the effect of the proposed mergers among the four largest Canadian chartered banks on the accessibility of financial services and capital in British Columbia. Accessibility is first defined and then analyzed according to the group affected. 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

Mémoires d'un nomade by Paul Bowles ( Book )
1 edition published in 1989 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Mémoires d'un important écrivain cosmopolite, d'origine américaine, ayant eu Tanger pour port d'attache pendant de nombreuses années. L'oeuvre est d'un grand intérêt, en dépit de certains jugements à l'emporte-pièce (les Français ne sont pas tous "xénophobes et soupçonneux" p. 209, etc.), et du fait que, comme le signale Odile Tremblay, l'auteur a "bizarrement laissé de côté l'univers mouvant des émotions et des motivations profondes". Paul Bowles considère qu'écrire son autobiographie est "une forme de journalisme"
