Globalization and its enemies by Daniel Cohen( Book )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Counters the argument that the global economy forces a system on people who do not want it, contending that globalization shows people material prosperity that they do want, and that poor countries have been excluded, not exploited
The wealth of the world and the poverty of nations by Daniel Cohen( Book )

13 editions published in 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Globalization" has become a loaded term. Should we in the West believe, literally, that trade with poor nations can be blamed for our "impoverishment"? In this book, Daniel Cohen claims that there is practically no foundation for such an alarmist position. We need to reverse the commonly held view that globalization has caused today's insecure labor market. On the contrary, Cohen argues, our own propensity for transforming the nature of work has created a niche for globalization and given it an ominous aspect, causing some to reject it. Such errors in analysis must not persist; as Cohen says, the stakes are too high."--Jacket

Our modern times : the new nature of capitalism in the information age by Daniel Cohen( Book )

19 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The "modern times" of the early 20th century saw the rise of the assembly line and the belief that standardization would make the world a better place. Yet along with greater production efficiency came dehumanization, as the division of labour created many jobs requiring mindless repetition rather than conscious involvement with work
The misfortunes of prosperity : an introduction to modern political economy by Daniel Cohen( Book )

29 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in English and French and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The economics of rising inequalities( Book )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an in-depth discussion of rising inequalities in the Western world. It explores the extent to which this phenomenon is the mechanical consequence of changes in economic fundamentals (such as changes in technological or demographic parameters), and to what extent they are the contingent consequences of country-specific and time-specific changes in institutions
The prosperity of vice : a worried view of economics by Daniel Cohen( Book )

18 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and Spanish and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What happened yesterday in the West is today being repeated on a global scale. Industrial society is replacing rural society: millions of peasants in China, India, and elsewhere are leaving the countryside and going to the city. New powers are emerging and rivalries are exacerbated as competition increases for control of raw materials. Contrary to what believers in the "clash of civilizations" maintain, the great risk of the twenty-first century is not a confrontation between cultures but a repetition of history. In The Prosperity of Vice, the influential French economist Daniel Cohen shows that violence, rather than peace, has been the historical accompaniment to prosperity. Peace in Europe came only after the barbaric wars of the twentieth century, not as the outcome of economic growth. What will happen this time for today's eagerly Westernizing emerging nations? Cohen guides us through history, describing the European discovery of the "philosopher's stone": the possibility of perpetual growth. But the consequences of addiction to growth are dire in an era of globalization. If a billion Chinese consume a billion cars, the future of the planet is threatened. But, Cohen points out, there is another kind of globalization: the immaterial globalization enabled by the Internet. It is still possible, he argues, that the cyber-world will create a new awareness of global solidarity. It even may help us accomplish a formidable cognitive task, as immense as that realized during the Industrial Revolution--one that would allow us learn to live within the limits of a solitary planet
Richesse du monde, pauvretés des nations by Daniel Cohen( Book )

20 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in French and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tout est faux, selon l'auteur, des peurs qui attribuent à la mondialisation les crises que connaissent les pays industrialisés. Les transformations des modes de production doivent tout à la révolution informatique et à la diffusion de l'enseignement. Pour sa démonstration, l'économiste utilise des cercles concentriques : du monde à la famille
Private lending to sovereign states : a theoretical autopsy by Daniel Cohen( Book )

Three lectures on post-industrial society by Daniel Cohen( Book )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this pithy and provocative book, the noted economist Daniel Cohen offers his analysis of the global shift to a post-industrial era. If it was once natural to speak of industrial society, Cohen writes, it is more difficult to speak meaningfully of post-industrial "society." The solidarity that once characterized industrial society no longer exists. The different components of large industrial enterprises have been systematically disassembled: tasks considered nonessential are assigned to subcontractors; engineers are grouped together in research sites, distant from the workers. Employees are left exposed, and shareholders act to protect themselves, Never has the awareness that we all live in the same world been so strong-and never have the social conditions of existence been so unequal." "In these wide-ranging reflections, Cohen describes the transformations that signaled the break between the industrial and the post-industrial eras. He links the revolution in information technology to the trend toward flatter hierarchies of workers with multiple skills - and connects the latter to work practices growing out of the culture of the May 1968 protests. Subcontracting and outsourcing have also changed the nature of work, and Cohen succinctly analyzes the new international division of labor, the economic rise of China, India, and the former Soviet Union, and the economic effects of free trade on poor countries. Finally, Cohen examines the fate of the European social model-with its traditional compromise between social justice and economic productivity - in a post-industrial world."--Jacket
Homo economicus : the (lost) prophet of modern times by Daniel Cohen( Book )

13 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looks at the western definition of the pursuit of happiness in economic terms in the wake of the 2007-8 financial crisis, exploring the need to rebalance the relation between competition and cooperation
Don't fix, don't float : the exchange rate in emerging markets, transition economies and developing countries by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )

21 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study deals with questions pertaining to international financial architecture from the perspective of developing countries, emerging markets and transition economies. Should the monetary authority fix the exchange rate of the national currency? Should it instead let the currency float in foreign exchange markets? What about bands, baskets and crawls between the fix and the float corners? Answering these questions is of significance to the national economy involved and, with regard to global finance, often beyond. In the same way that there may never be a pure float, even among key currencies, an instant fix does not provide a fast lane to credibility. Credibility is earned abroad as the development process reinforces institution building in monetary, financial and budgetary matters. Indeed, rules for budgetary adjustment (such as the zero deficit in Argentina or the EU Stability and Growth Pact) are necessary for any exchange-rate regime to deliver economic growth and development
La mondialisation et ses ennemis by Daniel Cohen( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in French and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Présente deux camps opposés à la mondialisation, d'un côté, les mollahs dénonçant l'Occident et la corruption du monde, de l'autre, les ennemis du capitalisme qui soulignent l'oppression exercée sur les peuples. Démontre que ces différents courants sont contredits notamment par les avancées technologiques, les peuples disposant des moyens de modeler le monde
La prospérité du vice : une introduction (inquiète) à l'économie by Daniel Cohen( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in French and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ouvrage de vulgarisation proposant de montrer de quelle façon l'économie façonne la société au fil du temps. Cette fresque évoque tour à tour l'Empire romain et les traders de Wall Street, les sociétés agraires du XIXe siècle ou encore le règne des services immatériels de l'époque contemporaine. L'auteur propose ainsi une initiation au commmerce de l'argent et à ses développements
The ICT revolution : productivity differences and the digital divide : a report for the Fondazione Rodolfo Debenedetti( Book )

11 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The view that the Internet and the information and communication technology (ICT) revolution would deliver a frictionless economy without recessions is, at least for the time being, dead. This book takes stock of the ICT revolution, going well below the surface to ask and answer a few key questions: did the ICT revolution contribute to the divergence in the growth record? And if this is the case, how and why were some countries better equipped to exploit the potential of ICT? The naive approach to the Internet views e-commerce as a means to achieve a perfect world of competition. By making information cheap and readily available, it should allow the affluent consumer to raise competitive pressure on firms, help the firms themselves to put competitive pressure on their own suppliers and so on. For the poor countries, the story goes, the Internet should lower the barriers to entry to rich countries' markets and foster their inclusion in world markets. However, the theory of economic geography does not support the idea that geography becomes irrelevant as the cost of distance is reduced
Trois leçons sur la société post-industrielle by Daniel Cohen( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in French and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce texte reprend en partie les interventions de D. Cohen dans le cadre du cycle de conférences Grand Angle. La première leçon revient sur l'essoufflement de la société industrielle.

La dernière leçon cite les raisons pour lesquelles la régularisation de la société post-industrielle semble si difficile
Nos temps modernes by Daniel Cohen( Book )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in French and Undetermined and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les temps modernes sont-ils ceux de la fin du travail comme le prétendent les économistes de tout poil? Comment expliquer que notre société soit accusée de tous les maux alors qu'elle s'est bâtie dans une critique vigoureuse de la société industrielle et capitaliste? Comment expliquer les dysfonctionnements actuels, au premier rang desquels le chômage?

The ladder of competitiveness : how to climb it by Orsetta Causa( Book )

19 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tables of national competitiveness give an easily comparable ranking of the winners and losers of global economic competition, but they do not explain why the poor countries are four times less productive than the rich ones or why some rich countries are twice as productive as others. Using empirical data from over 50 countries, this book shows how even small differences in a number of factors combine to boost or block productivity. Governments need such information to set priorities. Investors need it too, and two new rankings are proposed as alternatives to a simple comparison of industrial productivity. The first, called the investor ranking, is based on infrastructure, human capital and total factor productivity. The second, exporter ranking, is for investors whose prime concern is for a production platform well-integrated into world trade. Combining the new rankings with a more traditional one produces three groups of countries, termed balanced, high potential, and vulnerable. Group membership reserves some surprises: you may be rich, but that does not mean you are not vulnerable.--Publisher’s description
Toward a lender of first resort by Daniel Cohen( Book )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If interest rates (country spreads) rise, debt can rapidly be subject to a snowball effect, which becomes self-fulfilling with regard to the fundamentals themselves. This is a market imperfection, because we cannot be confident that the unaided market will choose the "good" over the "bad" equilibrium. We propose a policy intervention to deal with this structural weakness in the mechanisms of international capital flows. This is based on a simple taxonomy that breaks down the origin of crises into three components: confidence (spreads and currency crisis), fundamentals (real growth rate), and economic policy (primary deficit). Theory then suggests a set of circumstances in which a lender of first resort would be desirable. The policy would seek to short-circuit confidence crises, partly by using IMF support to improve ex ante incentives. Theory also illuminates the potential role of collective action clauses in reducing the risk of self-fulfilling debt crises
