Solidarity unionism at Starbucks by Daniel Gross( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Legendary legal scholar Staughton Lynd teams up with influential labor organizer Daniel Gross in this exposition on solidarity unionism, the do-it-yourself workplace organizing system that is rapidly gaining prominence around the country and around the world. Lynd and Gross make the audacious argument that workers themselves on the shop floor, not outside union officials, are the real hope for labor's future. Utilizing the principles of solidarity unionism, any group of co-workers, like the workers at Starbucks, can start building an organization to win an independent voice at work without wai
Country-specific and global shocks in the business cycle by Daniel Gross( )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Industrial production in G7 countries is assumed to be driven by two exogenous disturbances. Those disturbances are identified in a VAR model so they can be interpreted as country-specific and global supply shocks. The dynamic properties of the model are analyzed and the relative importance of each shock is measured. It is shown that the VAR model matches most of the theoretical predictions of standard intertemporal open-economy models. The identified structural disturbances are analyzed with regard to their impact on the current account and investment. Klassifikation: E32, F41
Trade flows and the international business cycle by Daniel Gross( )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We investigate into the role of the trade channel as important determinant of a country's current account position and the degree of business cycle synchronization with the rest of the world by comparing the predictions of two types of DGE models. It is shown that the behavior of a country's external balance and the international transmission of shocks depends amongst other things on two factors: i) the magnitude of trade interdependence, ii) the degree of substitutability between importable and domestically-produced goods. Using time series data on bilateral trade flows, we estimate the magnitude of trade interdependence and the elasticity of substitution between importable and domestic goods for the G7 countries. Given these estimates, idiosyncratic supply shocks potentially induce changes in the current account and foreign output that vary in direction and magnitude across G7 countries. The relationship between the magnitude of foreign trade and the import substitutability with various correlation measures is examined empirically in a cross-sectional dimension.

Labor law for the rank & filer : building solidarity while staying clear of the law by Staughton Lynd( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Blending cutting-edge legal strategies for winning justice at work with a theory of dramatic, bottom-up social change, this practical guide to workers' rights aims to make work better while reinvigorating the labor movement. A powerful organization model called "solidarity unionism" is explained, showing how the labor force can avoid the pitfalls of the legal system and utilize direct action to win fair rights. The new edition includes new cases governing fundamental labor rights and can be used not only by union workers, but can serve as a guerrilla legal handbook for any employee in this uns
Bull Run : Wall Street, the Democrats, and the new politics of personal finance by Daniel Gross( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The rise and fall of the markets now has a powerful and direct effect on the lives of millions of Americans, as they track their investments hour by hour, day by day, watching their wealth increase. The old equation that the personal is the political had changed. Now, it is the personal finance that is political, and all of us are involved. In Bull Run: Wall Street, the Democrats, and the New Politics of Personal Finance, Daniel Gross outlines these striking changes and explores their implications for our country, our pocketbooks, and our two major political parties."
