Surviving globalization? : perspectives for the German economic model by Stefan Beck( )

20 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Surviving Globalization? explores the future of the German economy within the institutional and societal framework of Modell Deutschland. The contributing authors scrutinize important economic trends, institutional changes and governmental reforms, ranging from corporate governance and industrial relations to macroeconomic policies, and from the welfare state to European integration. They assess the theoretical perspectives informing the current reforms and raise questions about the feasibility of institutional transfer." "Thus Surviving Globalization? provides a comprehensive and empirically profound introduction to the distinctive features of the German economic model in the light of globalization, European integration, and German unification. In contrast to common notions about the German economy, it identifies not institutional rigidities but the macroeconomic exhaustion of Germany's long standing mercantilism, its constant attempt to achieve current account surpluses, and the specific way of integrating East-Germany as major causes for its job crisis."--Jacket

Combating inequality : the global North and South by Alexander Gallas( )

10 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economic inequality has recently gained considerable academic attention. However, two important aspects of inequality have not been discussed systematically: its multidimensional nature and the question of what can be done to reverse it. This book offers insights from scholars representing the Global Labour University, which operates in Brazil, Germany, India, South Africa and the US. They analyse the various drivers of inequality, assess policy responses, and discuss counterstrategies. The main findings of this book are that rising levels of inequality cannot be addressed only with the standard policies responses, namely education, redistribution and 'green growth'. In addition, the way markets currently function needs to be corrected. The chapters in this volume focus on specific fields of contemporary capitalism where important drivers of inequality are located, for example, the labour market; the financial system; the tax system; multi-national corporations; and gender relations. Other chapters discuss in detail where political opportunities for change lie. They critically assess existing countermeasures; the idea of a 'green economy' and its implications for inequality; and existing campaigns by trade unions and new social movements against inequality. In line with the global nature of the problem, this book contains case studies on countries both from the north and south with considerable economic and political weight. This book provides academics, political practitioners and civil society activists with a range of ideas on how to drive back inequality. It will be of interest to those who study political economy, development economy and labour economics.--
Financial cultures and crisis dynamics by Bob Jessop( )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The recent financial crisis exposed both a naïve faith in mathematical models to manage risk and a crude culture of greed that embraces risk. This book explores cultures of finance in sites such as corporate governance, hedge funds, central banks, the City of London and Wall Street, and small and medium enterprises. It uses different methods to explore these cultures and their interaction with different financial orders to improve our understanding of financial crisis dynamics. The introduction identifies types of cultural turn in studies of finance. Part I outlines relevant research methods, including comparison of national cultures viewed as independent variables, cultural political economy, and critical discourse and narrative policy analysis. Part II examines different institutional cultures of finance and the cult of entrepreneurship. Part III offers historical, comparative and contemporary analyses of financial regimes and their significance for crisis dynamics. Part IV explores organizational cultures, modes of calculation, and financial practices and how they shape economic performance and guide crisis management. Part V considers crisis construals and responses in the European Union and China. This book's great strength is its multi-faceted approach to cultures of finance. Contributors deploy the cultural turn creatively to enhance comparative and historical analysis of financial regimes, institutions, organizations, and practices as well as their roles in crisis generation, construal, and management. Developing different paradigms and methods and elaborating diverse case studies, the authors illustrate not only how and why 'culture matters' but also how its significance is shaped by different financial regimes and contexts"--
Public banks in the age of financialization : a comparative perspective( )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Are public banks a better alternative to private banks? Do they provide sufficient finance for development? Do they serve as stability anchors in financial markets? This is an invaluable comparison of public banks from countries at different economic development levels. The contributors highlight both the benefits of public banks and their governance failures, overcoming the sterile debate of private versus public. Empirically analyzing three countries with significant public banks - Brazil, Germany and India - contributors support the Keynesian argument that public banks can contribute to employment by stabilizing the business cycle and by providing finance on a long-term basis. Taking cues from critical interpretative policy analysis, it is argued that neither changes in the incentive structure of management, nor institutional fora for public deliberations will prevent irresponsible behavior. Management's perception of the mission of public banks has to change, as well as its understanding of their role in society. Public Banks in the Age of Financialization will give insight to advanced students of finance, comparative politics and public management. Policy experts and public bank managers will also benefit from the in-depth case studies that provoke discussion on both the positives and negatives of public banks.--

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) : implications for labor( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and German and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States of America and the European Union are currently negotiating a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). It is one of the most ambitious free trade and investment initiatives, going much further than eliminating tariffs. TTIP mainly aims at reducing "non-tariff barriers". While tariffs on goods have been imposed with an eye to foreign competition, most of the non-tariff barriers are the laws and regulations that are the result of social struggles for the protection of consumers and workers. It is therefore certain that TTIP will impact workers. This volume provides a preliminary assessment of the likely consequences for labor by: - providing an overall introduction to the TTIP negotiations; -assessing the reliability of the studies claiming employment gains; - highlighting specific problematic proposals such as the investor-to-state dispute settlement mechanism; - presenting the position of organized labor from both sides of the Atlantic

Sozialkapitel in Handelsabkommen : Begründungen und Vorschläge aus juristischer, ökonomischer und politologischer Sicht by Christoph Scherrer( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Hinwendung der EU zu bilateralen Freihandelsabkommen mit Ländern, in denen internationale Kernarbeitsnormen regelmäßig verletzt werden, führt zu Forderungen nach Sozialkapiteln in Handelsabkommen. Doch bisher fehlte es an einer systematischen Bestimmung der Bestandteile solcher Sozialkapitel, die ökonomisch begründbar, politisch legitimiert und juristisch auf ihre Vereinbarkeit mit dem internationalen Handelsrecht geprüft sind. Diese Lücke füllt der interdisziplinär ausgerichtete Sammelband. Unter der Zielvorgabe eines effektiven Schutzes für Arbeitskräfte wird zunächst gefragt, inwiefern die Verkoppelung von Arbeitsnormen mit dem Handelsregime ökonomisch gerechtfertigt werden kann. Anschließend wird herausgearbeitet, welche Art von Klauseln heutige politische Legitimitätskriterien erfüllen. Die rechtswissenschaftlichen Kapitel loten die Spielräume für Sozialkapitel im internationalen Arbeits- und Handelsrechtregime aus und entwerfen auf dieser Basis Mustertexte für Sozialkapitel.Mit Beiträgen von: Thomas Greven, Andreas Hänlein, Claudia Hofmann, Karin Lukas, Christoph Scherrer, Hariati Sinaga, Astrid Steinkellner und Reingard Zimmer
