Globalization and the environment : risk assessment and the WTO by David Robertson( )

International economics and confusing politics by David Robertson( )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume assesses the future of international economic relations as economic imbalances are exacerbated by these developments and by changing international alliances. The author also considers the interests of small developing countries, which are acting collectively to seek 'a place at the table', as well as more preferential treatment. International socialism has re-invented itself as 'participatory democracy', which is employed by 'civil society' to challenge inter-governmental agencies. The future of international economic integration will depend on how these developments affect trade, finance, aid and development policies."
Enterprise architecture as strategy : creating a foundation for business execution by Jeanne W Ross( Book )

19 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Does it seem you've formulated a rock-solid strategy, yet your firm still can't get ahead? If so, construct a solid foundation for business execution--an IT infrastructure and digitized business processes to automate your company's core capabilities. In Enterprise Architecture as Strategy: Creating a Foundation for Business Execution, authors Jeanne W. Ross, Peter Weill, and David C. Robertson show you how. The key? Make tough decisions about which processes you must execute well, then implement the IT systems needed to digitize those processes. Citing numerous companies worldwide, the authors show how constructing the right enterprise architecture enhances profitability and time to market, improves strategy execution, and even lowers IT costs. Though clear, engaging explanation, they demonstrate how to define your operating model--your vision of how your firm will survive and grow--and implement it through your enterprise architecture. Their counterintuitive but vital message: when it comes to executing your strategy, your enterprise architecture may matter far more than your strategy itself

GATT rules for emergency protection by David Robertson( Book )

11 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Progress in the Uruguay Round negotiations, which got under way in 1987 under the auspices of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), has been tortuous largely because governments are having to address the unfinished business, the neglected issues and grievances, of seven previous rounds of multilateral trade negotiations." "Foremost in that 'unfinished business' has been the need to set about the liberalization of agricultural trade. Also crucial has been the need to restore to the GATT trading system the trade in textiles and clothing between developing and developed countries. Another critical issue has been the need to reform the GATT's provisions for emergency protection against a sudden surge of imports of a particular product. Revision of Article XIX has been on the GATT agenda for twenty years!" "By the late 1960s, it was evident that, in drawing up the GATT in 1946-47, governments did not devise an effective way of coping with the political problems which can arise in particular industries when social 'rigidities' hamper adjustments to changes in their economic environment. Article XIX has simply not been up to the job." "Instead of invoking Article XIX, governments have been sanctioning 'voluntary' export restraints - usually negotiated bilaterally, in secret and 'outside' GATT rules. In a world of euphemisms, these 'informal' safeguard actions are called 'grey area' measures, such is their doubtful legality." "This essay analyses the whole issue and assesses the 'safeguards code', elaborating Article XIX, that appears to be emerging from the negotiations in Geneva on the strengthening of the GATT trading system."--BOOK JACKET
