Triumph of the fatherland : German unification and the marginalization of women by Brigitte Young( Book )

13 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The East German uprising of 1989 was not a male revolution. Indeed, one of the most significant aspects of the fall of East Germany, compared to that of other East European nations, was the presence of women demanding a political role in the newly emerging social order. As one slogan proclaimed, "Without Women There Is No State." Yet despite the determination of these women--and of West German feminist groups--to help shape the future of the German state, their influence remained, in the end, very limited. In Triumph of the Fatherland, political scientist Brigitte Young draws on in-depth interviews, archival sources, newspapers, and her own observations from 1989 to 1991 to study the goals, strategies, and eventual fate of the German women's movements during this tumultuous period. Young focuses on the relationship between the state and its citizenry, outlining the mobilization of women in four states: the East German and West German states before unification; the "stateless state" in East Germany after the collapse of the Wall, and the West German state during unification. Ultimately she finds that the political opportunity structures opened during the "stateless state" closed again with unification, resulting in what Young calls "double gender marginalization."

Questioning financial governance from a feminist perspective by Brigitte Young( Book )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Questioning Financial Governance from a Feminist Perspective brings together feminist economists and feminist political economists from different countries located in North America and Europe to analyze the 'strategic silence' about gender in fiscal and monetary policy, and financial regulation. This silence reflects a set of assumptions that the key instruments of financial governance are gender-neutral. This often masks the ways in which financial governance operates to the disadvantage of women and reinforces gender inequality. This book examines both the transformations in the governance of finance that predate the financial crisis, as well as some dimension of the crisis itself. The transformations increasingly involved private as well as public forms of power, along with institutions of state and civil society, operating at the local, national, regional and global levels. An important aspect of these transformations has been the creation of policy rules (often enacted in laws) that limit the discretion of national policy makers with respect to fiscal, monetary, and financial sector policies. These policy rules tend to have inscribed in them a series of biases that have gender (as well as class and race-based) outcomes. The biases identified by the authors in the various chapters are the deflationary bias, male breadwinner bias, and commodification bias, adding two new biases: risk bias and creditor bias. The originality of the book is that its primary focus is on macroeconomic policies (fiscal and monetary) and financial governance from a feminist perspective with a focus on the gross domestic product and its fluctuations and growth, paid employment and inflation, the budget surplus/deficit, levels of government expenditure and tax revenue, and supply of money. The central findings are that the key instruments of financial governance are not gender neutral. Each chapter considers examples of financial governance, and how it relates to the gender order, including divisions of labour, and relations of power and privilege."
Financial cultures and crisis dynamics by Bob Jessop( Book )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 55 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"--

Die politische Ökonomie des Dienstleistungsabkommens (GATS) : Gender in EU und China by Brigitte Young( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in German and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mit dem GATS und der EU-Dienstleistungsrichtlinie ist ein Rahmen für den grenzüberschreitenden Handel mit Dienstleistungen geschaffen worden. Frauen sind im Dienstleistungssektor weltweit besonders stark vertreten. Allerdings stellt das Analysedreieck "Handel, Gender und Finanzen" ein bislang kaum untersuchtes Forschungsgebiet dar. Anhand der feministischen Makrok̲onomie wird der Zusammenhang zwischen Handel, Gender und Finanzen herausgearbeitet. Das zentrale Anliegen der Autorin ist es, die Schnittstelle zu finden, die einerseits den Gender-Aspekt mit Fragen der Handelsliberalisierung verbindet und andererseits die Liberalisierung der Kapitalmr̃kte mit der Privatisierung der f̲fentlichen Dienste und Infrastruktur verknüpft. Gerade die staatlichen Haushalte fungieren als wichtige Schnittstelle zwischen den globalen Finanzinstitutionen, dem f̲fentlichen Sektor und der Liberalisierung des Handels mit Dienstleistungen. Anhand von zwei Fallbeispielen (die Europĩsche Union und China) wird überprüft, ob die im Rahmen des GATS und der EU-Dienstleistungsrichtlinie forcierten Handelsliberalisierungsprozesse die existierenden Genderungleichheiten perpetuieren, sie akzentuieren oder dazu beitragen, sie zu erodieren. Dies führt zu der Frage, ob eine "Gender-Agenda" in der WTO notwendig und sinnvoll ist

Financial crisis : causes, policy responses, future challenges : outcomes of EU-funded research by European Commission( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reviewing the outcomes of EU-funded research in social sciences funded under the seventh framework programme, this publication addresses the causes of the financial crisis, the policy responses taken, and future challenges left to resolve. The first chapter opens with a discussion on the functions of financial markets, the causes of the financial crisis in 2007/2008 and its contagion to other regions of the world, as well as the role of financialisation and the economics of risk-shifting which may have undermined productivity enhancing innovation at the expense of social inequity. Following the discussion on the changes in financial markets and the pros and cons of complex financial innovations, the topic shifts in the second chapter to analyse the role of forecasting models to predict the Great Recession of 2008 and 2009. Excessive risk-taking and the crisis in the banking sector are the focus of the third chapter. Related to banking and the credit market is the conduct of monetary policy in integrated financial markets, discussed in the fourth chapter. The next section analyses different fiscal policy proposals and their macroeconomic outcomes. This issue goes to the heart of the debate as to whether fiscal policy has macroeconomic stabilising effects. The last chapter ends with a discussion on challenges left for policymakers and academics to reform the financial system, foster long-term sustainable and equitable economic growth (Lisbon Agenda 2005), and ensure smart, but also inclusive growth (Europe 2020 Strategy).--

Entfesselte Finanzmärkte : soziologische Analysen des modernen Kapitalismus by Natalia Besedovski( )

1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hauptbeschreibung Die internationalen Finanzmärkte sind zu einem einzigartigen Treibmittel des gesellschaftlichen Wandels geworden - und sind selbst schwer berechenbar. Sie haben Wachstum beschleunigt und Wohlstand begünstigt, und dann Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft in die Krise gestürzt. Um ihre janusköpfige Gestalt zu verstehen, müssen aber nicht nur ökonomische, sondern auch soziale, institutionelle und kulturelle Faktoren einbezogen werden. Im Zentrum des Bandes steht daher die Frage, welchen originären Beitrag die Soziologie zur Analyse moderner Finanzmärkte, ihrer Dynamik
