The fiscal crisis of the state by James O'Connor( Book )

23 editions published between 1973 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fiscal Crisis of the State refers to the tendency of government expenditures to outpace revenues in the U.S. in the late 1960s and early 1970s, but its relevance to other countries of the period and also in today's global economy is evident. When government expenditure constitutes a larger and larger share of total economy theorists who ignore the impact of the state budget do so at their own (and capitalism's) peril. This volume examines how changes in tax rates and tax structure used to regulate private economic activity. O'Connor theorizes that particular expenditures and programs and the budget as a whole can be understood only in terms of power relationships within the private economy. O'Connor's analysis includes an anatomy of American state capitalism, political power and budgetary control in the United States, social capital expenditures, social expenses of production, financing the budget, and the scope and limits of reform. He shows that the simultaneous growth of monopoly power and the state itself generate an increasingly severe social crisis. State monopolies indirectly determine the state budget by generating needs that the state must satisfy. The state administration organizes production as a result of a series of political decisions. Over time, there is a tendency for what O'Connor calls the social expenses of production to rise, and the state is increasingly compelled to socialize these expenses. The state has three ways to finance increased budgetary outlays: create state enterprises that produce social expenditures; issue debt and borrowing against further tax revenues; raise tax rates and introduce new taxes. None of these mechanisms are satisfactory. Neither the development of state enterprise nor the growth of state debt liberates the state from fiscal concerns. Similarly, tax finance is a form of economic exploitation and thus a problem for class analysis. O'Connor contends that the fiscal crisis of the capitalist state is the inev"--Provided by publisher

Discovering Maryland's first city : a summary report on the 1981-1984 archaeological excavations in St. Mary's City, Maryland by Henry M Miller( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This report summarizes the results of recent archaeological explorations at the site of Maryland's 17th-century capital. Excavations focused upon the heart of this long buried city to locate key structures and permit the documentary and archaeological records to be linked. Among the sites discovered was the c. 1635 residence of the first governor, a building which later served as Maryland's first Statehouse. Findings from this site are presented along with data on a lawyer's lodging, private homes and the ruins of a public inn which only stood for eleven years before its destruction by fire in 1678. Significant new evidence is also reported on a 1645 fortification known as Pope's Fort, the first physical trace of the English Civil War found in America. Finally, the historical data and new archaeological findings are integrated to produce accurate maps of the city. Analysis of these maps reveals that St. Mary's was a planned settlement which employed sophisticated European concepts of urban design, despite an absence of evidence for any city planning in surviving documents. These discoveries are significantly expanding our knowledge of 17th-century Chesapeake life and revolutionizing our perceptions of this early American city, the first 'Metropolis of Maryland.'"--Abstract
The French Revolution in Russian intellectual life, 1865-1905 by Dmitry Shlapentokh( )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2017 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sandwiched between the East and West, Russian intellectuals have for centuries been divided geographically, politically, and culturally into two distinct groups: the Slavophiles, who rejected Western-style democracy, preferring a more holistic and abstract vision, and the more rational and scientific-minded Westernizers. These two ideologies cut across the political spectrum of late nineteenth-century Russia and competed for dominance in the country's intellectual life. The tension created between these two opposing groups caused the feeling that violent upheaval was Russia's future. In turn, many began to think that Russia was possibly following the path of France and that a French-style revolution might be possible on Russian soil. In The French Revolution in Russian Intellectual Life, Dmitry Shlapentokh describes the role that the French democratic revolution played in Russia's intellectual development by the end of the nineteenth century. The revolutionary upheaval in Russia at the beginning of twentieth century and the continuous expansion of the West convinced most Russian intellectuals that the French Revolution in its democratic reading was indeed the pathway of history. Yet the rise of totalitarian regimes and their expansion proved the validity of the sober vision of nineteenth-century Russian intellectuals. Some conservative Russian intellectuals believed that not only would Russia preserve its authoritarian regime but it would spread this regime all over the world. In this context, Shlapentokh argues the French Revolution with its democratic tradition was only a phenomenon of Western civilization and hence transitory. The flirtation with Western ideology, with its democratic polity and market economy that followed in the wake of the collapse of the communist regime, culminated in an increasing push for corporate authoritarianism and nationalism. This work helps explain why Russia turned away from democratic to autocratic stylesi?1"--Provided by publisher

An Experiment on the Effect of Construal Level and Small Wins Framing on Environmental Sustainability Goal Commitment by James O'Connor( )

1 edition published in 2012 in Undetermined and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Companies are under increasing pressure from every category of stakeholder, from government and community to supply chain and consumer, to improve the environmental sustainability of their operations, products and services. To be most successful with environmental sustainability improvement initiatives, a company must have the commitment and effort of its employees. The purpose of this research is to study the effect of the company’s approach to the initiative on the level of employee commitment to the company’s environmental sustainability goals. This research was conducted with a two-factor, factorial experiment. The experimental factors were construal level and small wins framing. Each of these factors had two levels, creating a 2x2 design with four treatment level combinations. A third study factor was environmental concern. Four other variables, goal difficulty, perceived organizational efficacy, gender and age, were included in the model as control variables. The dependent variable was goal commitment. Approximately 150 participants were recruited for the experiment and randomly assigned to one of the four fixed, treatment combinations. Hierarchical regression was used to estimate the factors’ main and interaction effects, as well as the significance of the control variables. Neither of the two manipulated variables, construal level and small wins, was found to have a significant main effect on goal commitment. There were, however, significant interactions between environmental concern and construal level, and between environmental concern and small wins framing, on goal commitment. At high levels of environmental concern, the effects of construal level and small wins were as hypothesized, but at low levels of environmental concern, the effects of construal level and small wins were opposite of what was expected. Additionally, both organizational efficacy and gender were found to significantly affect one’s goal commitment
