Capitalism by Paul Bowles( Book )

30 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and Italian and held by 785 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."--Jacket

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

15 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 156 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."--Jacket
Globalization and labour in China and India : impacts and responses by Paul Bowles( Book )

13 editions published in 2010 in English and German and held by 148 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
International trade and neoliberal globalism : towards re-peripheralisation in Australia, Canada and Mexico? by Paul Bowles( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 128 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

Resource communities in a globalizing region : development, agency, and contestation in northern British Columbia by Gary N Wilson( Book )

7 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Northern British Columbia has always played an important role in Canada's economy, but for many Canadians it also existed as an almost forgotten place: a vast territory where only a few roads and a ferry system connected small cities, towns, and villages to the outside world. Now, as the appetite for natural resources intensifies, this resource-rich and geographically important region is being pulled onto the national and global economic stages. This timely volume examines the connections between local development and global forces and how governments, Aboriginal peoples, organized labour, NGOs, and the private sector are adapting to, resisting, and embracing change."--
