Corporate accountability to the poor? : assessing the effectiveness of community-based strategies by Niamh Garvey( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper investigates how, when and why community-based strategies are effective in promoting corporate accountability to the poor. It argues that mainstream approaches to corporate social responsibility (CSR) underestimate the importance of power in the relationship between corporations and the communities they invest in, which limit their applicability to many developing country contexts in particular. In helping to address this neglect we draw on literatures on power, accountability and citizen participation in order to analyse 46 cases where communities have attempted to hold corporations to account for their social and environmental responsibilities. The paper argues that more attention should be paid to a number of state-, corporation- and community-related factors, which are found to be key to the effectiveness of strategies aimed at providing corporate accountability to the poor

Passive/active : defining the role for a health benefit exchange in the interests of New Yorkers by Peter Newell( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New federal standards for health insurance coverage, coupled with ample state discretion to meet those standards, are central to the Affordable Care Act. Nowhere is the tension created by this federalist approach more evident than with requirements for the creation of new state health benefit exchanges, which are charged with renovating the insurance market for individuals and small businesses so that it is more efficient, is more affordable, and makes it easier for consumers to shop and compare coverage options based on value. Under federal guidance issued last summer, states must work to ensure that exchanges offer coverage "in the interest" of its customers. Just how to attain that goal has engendered debates in state capitals across the nation, as state policymakers and stakeholders reargue the ACA's brief on the proper balance of regulation and market forces. This debate, with its roots in the managed competition theories that took hold in the 1970s, is often characterized by a continuum stretching between two poles: the passive market organizer approach or clearinghouse, and the active purchaser model
