The wealth of the world and the poverty of nations by Daniel Cohen( )

17 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 2,527 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
Three lectures on post-industrial society by Daniel Cohen( )

30 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 2,282 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
Our modern times : the new nature of capitalism in the information age by Daniel Cohen( )

19 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 1,507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The early 20th century saw the rise of the assembly line and the belief that standardization would make the world a better place. This text traces the roots of this revolution back to 1968, when the youth of the industrialized world rejected their parents values and the situation of the workers
Globalization and its enemies by Daniel Cohen( Book )

22 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,374 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 prosperity of vice : a worried view of economics by Daniel Cohen( )

12 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,040 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
The infinite desire for growth by Daniel Cohen( Book )

27 editions published between 2015 and 2020 in 3 languages and held by 858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leading economist Daniel Cohen provides a whirlwind tour of the history of economic growth, from the early days of civilization to modern times, underscoring what is so unsettling today. The new digital economy is establishing a "zero-cost" production model, inexpensive software is taking over basic tasks, and years of exploiting the natural world have begun to backfire with deadly consequences. Working hard no longer guarantees social inclusion or income. Drawing on economics, anthropology, and psychology, and thinkers ranging from Rousseau to Keynes and Easterlin, Cohen examines how a future less dependent on material gain might be considered and, how, in a culture of competition, individual desires might be better attuned to the greater needs of society."--Jacket flap
Macroeconomics by Olivier Blanchard( Book )

23 editions published between 2000 and 2020 in French and English and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4ème de couverture indique : "Véritable livre de référence, Macroéconomie bénéfie d'un double point de vue : celui de l'auteur de l'édition américaine, Olivier Blanchard, un des meilleurs spécialistes de l'économie mondiale, et celui de son également célèbre coauteur, Daniel Cohen, à qui l'on doit cette édition européenne francophone. Complet, accessible et attractif, ce manuel est particulièrement adapté à des étudiants en licence. Il expose tous les concepts de la discipline (PIB, croissance, inflation, politique économique, marché du travail, chômage, modèle IS/LM, courbe de Phillips, taux de change, etc.) et présente les principales écoles de pensée (Keynes et les classiques, Friedman, etc.) ainsi que les grands événements économiques et les tendances structurelles. Cette 7e édition rend compte des développements récents de l'économie mondiale et de la recherche en macroéconomie, notamment dans les domaines suivants : les marchés financiers, qui font l'objet d'un nouveau chapitre ; les nouveaux modes d'intervention des banques centrales par leur taux directeur ; une nouvelle analyse de l'équilibre de moyen terme ; les limites des politiques monétaires et budgétaires. Les données chiffrées (chômage, inflation, croissance, PIB, etc.) ont été actualisées. Cette édition constitue ainsi le premier manuel de macroéconomie réellement "postcrise des subprimes""
The economics of rising inequalities by Thomas Piketty( Book )

17 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Economics of Rising Inequalities brings together work by leading economists on the rise of inequality in the United States and some European countries that has been observed in the last two decades. These contributions are both theoretical and empirical, and address topics such as the role of organizational change at the firm level, the political economy of inequality and redistributive institutions, the contribution of search and matching and segregation by skills, and new empirical evidence on the underlying anatomy of inequality.--
Toward a lender of first resort by Daniel Cohen( )

18 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 550 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
The ladder of competitiveness : how to climb it by Orsetta Causa( )

21 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 540 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
Richesse du monde, pauvretés des nations by Daniel Cohen( Book )

31 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 408 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
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 )

25 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Donþt Fix, Donþt Float is a book about credibility, or lack thereof. It 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. In Donþt Fix, Donþt Float, the case for intermediate regimes is made for five country groups in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Developing countries, emerging markets and transition economies, together with the OECD area, are facing the consequences of a worsening global economic outlook. In this environment, the development perspective underlying Don't Fix, Don't Float is clearly essential

The ICT revolution : productivity differences and the digital divide : a report for the Fondazione Rodolfo Debenedetti( Book )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Understanding the new forces of agglomeration and the forces of dispersion in the new Internet economy is one of the major themes of this book. Drawing on a wide range of data, it assembles the work of two teams of leading economists in the ICT field. Part 1 focuses on the role that the ICT revolution played in advanced countries to grow output and productivity at macro, industry, and firm levels. Part 2 assesses whether or not the digital economy will indeed result in a more competitive and more equal world."--BOOK JACKET
Homo economicus, prophète (égaré) des temps nouveaux by Daniel Cohen( Book )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in French and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sous l'égide d'une nouvelle civilisation-monde, dominée par un capitalisme exubérant, la société devient beaucoup plus compétitive. L'obsession des chiffres se diffuse et la manie du classement (écoles, hôpitaux, chercheurs, cadres, employés...) s'est installée partout. Sur Facebook, les enfants mettent leur vie privée en scène sous le regard et le jugement des autres, chacun cherchant à avoir le plus d'amis possibles. Les firmes organisent une concurrence nouvelle entre leurs salariés, sous-traitant les tâches inutiles, licenciant ceux qui ne peuvent pas suivre. Un monde néo-darwinien, où les plus faibles sont éliminés et soumis au mépris des vainqueurs, est en train de s'imposer. Adossé aux promesses ambigües de la révolution numérique en cours, un scénario crépusculaire se lit entre les lignes de ce monde en devenir. En y ajoutant les bouleversements rendus possibles par la génétique le défi est immense. Rien n'est pourtant inéluctable dans ces évolutions. Les métaphores tirées du monde naturel n'ont de pertinence que pour ceux qui en profitent. A l'heure où des milliards d'humains se pressent aux portes du modèle occidental, l'urgence est de repenser de fond en comble le rapport entre la quête d'un bonheur individuel - pas forcément inaccessible ! - et la marche efficace de nos sociétés modernes. Un nouvel essai provoquant qui nous rend plus intelligent
