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 25 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

Health benefit exchanges are the centerpiece of the sweeping insurance reforms enacted by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). While Congress specified a destination for states--offering health plans "in the interests" of individuals and small businesses--it left broad discretion to states on how to get there. Stepping into the breach, exchange theorists have created useful models for examining the roles an exchange could play in state insurance markets, ranging from a "passive market organizer" to an "active purchaser." The passive market organizer model, also known as the "clearinghouse," limits an exchange's role to ensuring compliance with federal standards and facilitating purchases with information on quality and new technology. Under the active purchaser model, an exchange would attempt to use its leverage--much like a large employer--to get the best prices through a competitive procurement, or to advance other goals
