State Capitalism (Hardcover): Barbara Krug State Capitalism (Hardcover)
Barbara Krug
R14,689 Discovery Miles 146 890 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book takes as its starting point the question of whether contemporary state capitalism simply uses different tools than earlier or other variants of capitalism, or whether it is an altogether new kind of economic regime. It brings together key research and commentary which will help to define the concept of contemporary state capitalism as an economic model and present a nuanced view of state capitalism in action. The editor has selected the articles on the basis of their academic merit, but has also included articles representative of the specific academic climate of a certain time such as Marxist-based concepts. Although these may look `out-of date' or have been dismissed as unsatisfactory, they are nevertheless important for an understanding of the development of the debate. A clear original introduction by the editor provides an illuminating guide to this topic and indicates new areas for further study and analysis.

Handbook of the International Political Economy of Production (Hardcover): Kees van der Pijl Handbook of the International Political Economy of Production (Hardcover)
Kees van der Pijl
R4,699 Discovery Miles 46 990 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The Handbook of the International Political Economy of Production offers a comprehensive, state-of-the-art overview of the changing world of global production. The book explores the topic in a range of directions, including the human material `used' in production across the globe and alternatives proposed from different quarters. Chapters cover the geography of why and where jobs are moving in both manufacturing and services. The doubling of the world's available labour supply after the opening up of the planned economies in Europe and Asia has sharply tilted the balance of power towards giant corporations. Labour and the politics of work is analysed in a number of key countries. Possible signs of a recovery of organized labour's negotiating power on this vastly expanded playing field are discussed in separate chapters, and a complete overview is provided of labour research networks currently active. This important volume addresses topics relating to the human and natural basis on which production rests, from the consequences of the exploitation of the body and mind to sex work, biotechnology, and the prospects for ecological re-balancing. Written by a team of authors from fourteen different countries and comprising some of the biggest names in contemporary social science as well as topical specialists, this Handbook will prove a critical resource to political economists at all levels, trade unionists and NGO activists in the labour and human rights sphere, politicians and journalists.

The Great Recession and the Contradictions of Contemporary Capitalism (Hardcover): Riccardo Bellofiore, Giovanna Vertova The Great Recession and the Contradictions of Contemporary Capitalism (Hardcover)
Riccardo Bellofiore, Giovanna Vertova
R2,183 Discovery Miles 21 830 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The Great Recession has punctuated the long history of capitalism and is a necessary outcome of contemporary capitalism's great contradictions, both in its Anglo-Saxon configuration and European neo-mercantilism posture. To be properly understood it is vital to take into account the ongoing structural transformation of the crisis in its multiple dimensions. Through expert contributions, this book explores the integral role of finance, class and gender in analysing the great recession, alongside offering plural theoretical interpretations of the crisis. The Great Recession and the Contradictions of Contemporary Capitalism presents a comprehensive insight into the global crisis, focusing on debt, asset inflation and financial fragility. Key areas such as global imbalances, monetary reform and the management of public finance are examined, and a unique investigation into the Italian experience of the crisis is offered. The book concludes with novel concepts on the gender dimension of the crisis and the analogies between a nuclear and financial chain reaction. Both the financial and real aspects of this modern phenomenon are addressed in this timely book. Academics and students of economics, international political economy, sociology and political science will benefit from the comprehensive and original perspective this book offers.

Capitalism and Freedom (Hardcover, Anniversary edition): Milton Friedman Capitalism and Freedom (Hardcover, Anniversary edition)
Milton Friedman
R1,135 R1,026 Discovery Miles 10 260 Save R109 (10%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

It is a rare professor who greatly alters the thinking of his professional colleagues. It's an even rarer one who helps transform the world. Friedman has done both." - Stephen Chapman, Chicago Tribune How can we benefit from the promise of government while avoiding the threat it poses to individual freedom? In his classic book, Capitalism and Freedom, Milton Friedman presents his view of the proper role of competitive capitalism - the organization of the bulk of economic activity through private enterprise operating in a free market - as both a device for achieving economic freedom and a necessary condition for political freedom. He also outlines the role that government should play in a society dedicated to freedom and relying primarily on the market to organize economic activity. Friedman begins with a discussion of the principles of a truly liberal society. He then applies those principles to a range of pressing problems, including monetary policy, discrimination, education, income distribution, welfare, and poverty. The result is a book that has sold well over half a million copies in English, has been translated into eighteen languages, and has become increasingly influential in recent years as more and more governments have moved from highly planned economies to embrace free market economics.

Cambridge Studies in Economics, Choice, and Society - Islam Instrumentalized: Religion and Politics in Historical Perspective... Cambridge Studies in Economics, Choice, and Society - Islam Instrumentalized: Religion and Politics in Historical Perspective (Paperback)
Jean-Philippe Platteau
R656 Discovery Miles 6 560 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In this book, economist Jean-Philippe Platteau addresses the question: does Islam, the religion of Muslims, bear some responsibility for a lack of economic development in the countries in which it dominates? In his nuanced approach, Platteau challenges the widespread view that the doctrine of Islam is reactionary in the sense that it defends tradition against modernity and individual freedom. He also questions the view that fusion between religion and politics is characteristic of Islam and predisposes it to theocracy. He disagrees with the substantivist view that Islam is a major obstacle to modern development because of a merging of religion and the state, or a fusion between the spiritual and political domains. But he also identifies how Islam's decentralized organization, in the context of autocratic regimes, may cause political instability and make reforms costly.

VINTAGE MINIS: GREAT MINDS. BIG IDEAS. LITTLE BOOKS.

How do we choose between what is fair and just, and what our debtors demand of us? Yanis Varoufakis was put in such a dilemma in 2015 when he became the finance minister of Greece. In this rousing book, he charts the absurdities that underpin calls for austerity, as well as his own battles with a bureaucracy bent on ignoring the human cost of its every action. Passionately outspoken and tuned to the voices of the oppressed, Varoufakis presents a guide to modern economics, and its threat to democracy, like no other.

Capitalism and Democracy - A Fragile Alliance (Hardcover): Theo C. M. J. Van De Klundert Capitalism and Democracy - A Fragile Alliance (Hardcover)
Theo C. M. J. Van De Klundert
R1,998 Discovery Miles 19 980 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Capitalism is driven by technological revolutions, leading to alternating periods of regulation and deregulation in leading economies. Technologically backward countries face a different situation as they have to catch up with the leaders. Against this backdrop, Theo van de Klundert examines the relationship between capitalism and democracy, combining economic theory and historical description to analyse long-run economic development. Emphasis is placed on the interrelation between economic and political power, and a robust state-of-the-art overview of today's political economy is presented. The author addresses two fundamental questions raised in the analysis of the relationship between capitalism and democracy. Firstly, he explores why capitalism in leading economies is characterized by alternating periods of regulation and deregulation, and secondly, whether developing countries can opt for different types of capitalism once the potential for catching up with developed countries has expired. The consequences of a shift in the balance of power in the global economy are also considered in detail. Broad in scope and employing various methodological approaches, this book will prove a fascinating read for academics, students and researchers in the fields of economics and heterodox economics.

The Rediscovery of Classical Economics - Adaptation, Complexity and Growth (Hardcover): David Simpson The Rediscovery of Classical Economics - Adaptation, Complexity and Growth (Hardcover)
David Simpson
R1,878 Discovery Miles 18 780 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

David Simpson skilfully argues that a market economy can be best understood as a human complex system, a perspective that represents a continuation of the classical tradition in economic thought. In the classical tradition, growth rather than allocative efficiency is the principal object of enquiry, economic phenomena are recognised to be elements of processes rather than structures, and change is evolutionary. The book shows the common principles that connect the early classical school, the Austrian school and complexity theory in a single line of thought. It goes on to show how these principles can be applied to explain the characteristic features of a market economy - namely incessant change, growth, the business cycle and the market process itself - and argues that static equilibrium theory, whether neoclassical or neo-Keynesian, cannot satisfactorily account for these phenomena. This fascinating book will provide a stimulating read for academics, postgraduate students and all those with an interest in economic theory and economic policy.

Buying Time - The Delayed Crisis of Democratic Capitalism (Paperback): Wolfgang Streeck Buying Time - The Delayed Crisis of Democratic Capitalism (Paperback)
Wolfgang Streeck
R180 R143 Discovery Miles 1 430 Save R37 (21%) Shipped within 4 - 10 working days

The financial and economic crisis that began in 2008 still has the world on tenterhooks. The gravity of the situation is matched by a general paucity of understanding about what is happening and how it started.
In this book, based on his 2012 Adorno Lectures given in Frankfurt, Wolfgang Streeck places the crisis in the context of the long neoliberal transformation of postwar capitalism that began in the 1970s. He analyses the subsequent tensions and conflicts involving states, governments, voters and capitalist interests, as expressed in inflation, public debt, and rising private indebtedness. Streeck traces the transformation of the tax state into a debt state, and from there into the consolidation state of today. At the centre of the analysis is the changing relationship between capitalism and democracy, in Europe and elsewhere, and the advancing immunization of the former against the latter.

R2,305 Discovery Miles 23 050 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In a period of increasing globalization and rapid growth in emerging countries, recognizing sources of regional competitiveness is of paramount importance. This timely and informative book identifies and analyses changes in the origins of regional advantage. The expert contributors illustrate that sources of regional competitiveness are strongly linked with spatially observable yet increasingly flexible realities, and include building advanced and efficient transport, communications and energy networks, changing urban and rural landscapes, and creating strategic and forward-looking competitiveness policies. They investigate long-term interactions between regional competitiveness and urban mobility, as well as the connections that link global sustainability with local technological and institutional innovations, and the intrinsic diversity of spatially rooted innovation processes. A prospective analysis on networks and innovation infrastructure is presented, global environmental issues such as climate change and energy are explored, and new policy perspectives - relevant world-wide - are prescribed. Networks, Space and Competitiveness will prove an invaluable resource for academics, students and researchers across a range of fields including international and regional economics, regional science, economic geography and international business.

This book discusses Bangladesh's economic and social development that may be called a "miracle" since the country has achieved remarkable development progress under several unfavorable situations: weak governance and political instabilities, inequality, risks entailed in rapid urbanization, and exposure to severe disaster risks. The authors examine what led to this successful economic development, and the potential challenges that it presents, aiming to elicit effective policy interventions that can be adapted by other developing countries.

Cities in Global Capitalism (Paperback): Ugo Rossi Cities in Global Capitalism (Paperback)
Ugo Rossi
R403 R330 Discovery Miles 3 300 Save R73 (18%) Shipped within 7 - 13 working days

In what ways are cities central to the evolution of contemporary global capitalism? And in what ways is global capitalism forged by the urban experience? This book provides a response to these questions, exploring the multifaceted dimensions of the city-capitalism nexus. Drawing on a wide range of conceptual approaches, including political economy, neo-institutionalism and radical political theory, this insightful book examines the complex relationships between contemporary capitalist cities and key forces of our times, such as globalization and neoliberalism. Taking a truly global perspective, Ugo Rossi offers a comparative analysis of the ways in which urban economies and societies reflect and at the same time act as engines of global capitalism. Ultimately, this book shows how over the past three decades capitalism has shifted a gear no longer merely incorporating key aspects of society into its system, but encompassing everything, including life itself and illustrates how cities play a central role within this life-oriented construction of global capitalism.

The Economy of China (Paperback): Linda Yueh The Economy of China (Paperback)
Linda Yueh
R631 Discovery Miles 6 310 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The emergence of China since 1979 has been a hallmark in the global economy, not only in the past but also in this century. This comprehensive book provides an analytical view of the remarkable economic development of the most exciting economy in the world. China's impressive economic growth has propelled it from being one of the poorest countries in the world to becoming its second largest economy. It is a complex economy with a mix of characteristics resulting from being both a transition economy and a developing country, which also points to the challenges that it still faces. This book explains China's remarkable transformation from a centrally planned to a more market-oriented economy through examination of the institutional reforms necessary to support such marketisation and eventual global integration. Although no book will be able to be completely comprehensive given the scale of the economy and the remarkable pace of transformation over three decades, this study highlights the key areas giving an overview of the major developments in China's economy, enabling its prospects of continuing growth to be assessed. With topical discussion incorporating recent data and developments, this book will be a stimulating read for academic researchers, postgraduate students in economics, international business, Chinese and area studies, as well as anyone interested in understanding the Chinese economy.

Institutional Variety in East Asia - Formal and Informal Patterns of Coordination (Hardcover): Werner Pascha, Cornelia Storz,... Institutional Variety in East Asia - Formal and Informal Patterns of Coordination (Hardcover)
Werner Pascha, Cornelia Storz, Markus Taube
R2,425 Discovery Miles 24 250 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This illuminating book broadly addresses the emerging field of `diversity of capitalism' from a comparative institutional approach. It explores the varied patterns for achieving coordination in different economic systems, applying them specifically to China, Japan and South Korea. These countries are of particular interest due to the fact that they are often considered to have developed their own peculiar blend of models of capitalism. The expert contributors take a common institutional approach, focusing on institutions at the macro level. They present case studies to demonstrate the diversity of institutional patterns at the advent of the 21st century, both within the East Asian region and elsewhere. Examples of stability within existing institutions are illustrated alongside examples of comprehensive institutional change. Underpinning the case studies is a set of theoretical and empirical challenges for researchers concerned with national institutional settings, path dependence and endogenous dynamics. Institutional Variety in East Asia will prove a fascinating read for academics and students with an interest in Asian studies, institutional theory, political economy and heterodox economics.

Modelling the Composition of Government Expenditure (Hardcover): John Creedy, Solmaz Moslehi Modelling the Composition of Government Expenditure (Hardcover)
John Creedy, Solmaz Moslehi
R1,946 Discovery Miles 19 460 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The composition of government expenditure varies considerably across countries. The aim of this book is to explore the choice of expenditure using a range of modelling approaches. The models allow for different economic environments, involving the types of expenditure considered, the time period of analysis and the behaviour of individuals. The composition of expenditure is examined using majority voting and public finance frameworks, where the latter involves maximisation of a social welfare function involving a trade-off between equity and efficiency. Special attention is given to expenditure on transfer payments, public goods and education. Empirical analyses are also carried out, using data for a wide range of countries, where potential orders of magnitude of various components of the models are obtained. The models help in considering important factors and the inter-relationships involved. In particular, a synthesis is provided which allows special consideration of the role of basic inequality in influencing expenditure patterns. The book will be of considerable value to students and researchers interested in public economics.

Crash and Beyond - Causes and Consequences of the Global Financial Crisis (Paperback): Andrew Farlow Crash and Beyond - Causes and Consequences of the Global Financial Crisis (Paperback)
Andrew Farlow
R403 Discovery Miles 4 030 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In 2008, the world was plunged into a financial and economic crash. This book explores the roots of the crash, including the build-up of global economic imbalances, the explosion in the use of novel financial instruments, the mismanagement of risk, and the specific roles played by housing and debt. It reviews the evidence that on the eve of the crash all was not well and that many political and finance industry leaders ignored the dangers. The key events of the crash are described, and the main amplification mechanisms explained. An economics lens is used to dissect the bank rescue, paying particular attention to the hidden ways in which it worked, who will ultimately bear the costs, and to what degree new risks were created. The book evaluates the fiscal and monetary policies used to rescue economies, efforts to tackle unemployment, proposals for dealing with collapsing housing markets, austerity and the battles over long-term sovereign debt, the Eurozone crash, and the risks of future economic instability. It reviews reform-of mortgage markets, monetary policy, and banking-designed to make such disasters less likely in future. Written before, during, and in the years immediately after the crash, it is an engaging chronicle and comprehensive analysis of the events and thinking of these years. The book's arguments take on added authority given that the author had identified, and called attention to, key features of the crash before it happened.

Austrian Law and Economics (Hardcover): Mario J Rizzo Austrian Law and Economics (Hardcover)
Mario J Rizzo
R13,263 Discovery Miles 132 630 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The use of economics to study law was pioneered by the Austrian School of Economics. The nineteenth century founders of the school believed that economics could contribute to understanding the spontaneous development of common law as well as the nature of legal rights. For this insightful two-volume collection Mario Rizzo has selected key papers from today's vibrant Austrian School, focusing on the study of property, market-chosen law, slippery-slope analysis, entrepreneurship, institutions, decentralized social knowledge, and the evolution of legal institutions. These volumes represent the cutting-edge Austrian contributions to economics and will be an essential reference source for both students and researchers.

Capitalism 4.0 - The Birth of a New Economy (Paperback): Anatole Kaletsky Capitalism 4.0 - The Birth of a New Economy (Paperback)
Anatole Kaletsky 1
R303 R237 Discovery Miles 2 370 Save R66 (22%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The global financial crisis of 2007 to 2009 ruined businesses and banks, individuals and even nations, and seemed to land a mortal blow to the capitalist system. But capitalism was not destroyed, rather it was irrevocably altered: the forces that precipitated the crisis are now contributing to the evolution of a new, stronger version of the capitalist model. Tracing the development of capitalism from the late eighteenth century through three distinct historical phases, Kaletsky shows how at each of these transitions the existing economic order appeared to be fatally threatened, only for capitalism to reinvent itself and emerge stronger than before. The turning point for our most recent age of capitalism came on 15 September 2008 when Lehman Brothers collapsed, setting off market chaos which, had it not been for government bailouts and guarantees, would have toppled every bank in the Western world, an incident which set off the fourth major systemic transformation in capitalism's history - Capitalism 4.0. Understanding Capitalism 4.0 will be critical to the continued recovery of our global economies. In this controversial and wide-ranging book, Anatole Kaletsky, one of the world's foremost economic commentators, puts recent financial events into historical and ideological perspective. He describes the emerging features of this new capitalist model, explains how it differs from the previous versions - and how it will change politics, finance, international relations and economic thinking in the next decade.

Suminori Tokunaga, Budy P. Resosudarmo
R2,456 R2,195 Discovery Miles 21 950 Save R261 (11%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book presents an evaluation of the impacts of megathrust earthquakes and tsunamis on regional economies and subsequent reconstruction, as well as regional revitalization by the spatial economic model and dynamic macro and regional computable general equilibrium (CGE) models. The cases examined are the Great East Japan Earthquake and the Indian Ocean Tsunami. The study constructs three models of these megathrust earthquakes and the associated tsunami. In the first model, the regional CGE model is proposed with a database comprising the two-regional social accounting matrix for 2005 between the region comprising four disaster-affected prefectures of Japan and the non-disaster region. For the recursive dynamic regional CGE model, the model that expanded and improved the dynamic two-regional CGE model to reflect the incomplete employment conditions and the aging society is used to analyze the impacts of an earthquake and the construction of industrial clusters. In the second model, the interregional input-output model is proposed in order to analyze the impacts of the earthquake and rapid population decline and construction of a biogas electricity power plant. In the third model, a new economic geography (NEG) model is proposed, consisting of the 47 prefectures of Japan in order to investigate the impacts of the Great East Japan and Nankai megathrust earthquakes and the associated tsunami and to consider how they change the regional economies of Japan. Using these three models, the impacts of megathrust earthquakes and tsunamis on regional economies and reconstruction and on regional revitalization are evaluated.
