Innovation and Employment - Process versus Product Innovation (Paperback): Charles Edquist, Leif Hommen, Maureen McKelvey Innovation and Employment - Process versus Product Innovation (Paperback)
Charles Edquist, Leif Hommen, Maureen McKelvey
R748 Discovery Miles 7 480 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Which kinds of growth lead to increased employment and which do not? This is one of the questions that this important volume attempts to answer. The book explores the complex relationships between innovation, growth and employment that are vital for both research into, and policy for, the creation of jobs. Politicians claiming that more rapid growth would remedy unemployment do not usually specify what kind of growth is meant. Is it, for example, economic (GDP) or productivity growth? Growing concern over `jobless growth' requires both policymakers and researchers to make such distinctions, and to clarify their employment implications. The authors initially address their theoretical approach to, and conceptualization of, innovation and employment, where the distinction between process and product innovations and between high-tech and low-tech goods and services are central. They go on to address the relationship between innovation and employment, using empirical material to analyse the effects that different kinds of innovations have upon job creation and destruction. Finally, the volume summarizes the findings and addresses conclusions as well as policy implications. This book will be of great interest to those involved in research and policy in the fields of macroeconomics (economic growth and employment), industrial economics and innovation.

Monetarism Under Thatcher - Lessons for the Future (Hardcover): Gordon Pepper, Michael J. Oliver Monetarism Under Thatcher - Lessons for the Future (Hardcover)
Gordon Pepper, Michael J. Oliver
R1,967 Discovery Miles 19 670 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This authoritative book analyses the recent problems associated with the UK's monetary system and suggests a long-term solution to control bank lending in the future. It draws on extensive historical material, discussions with former senior officials and politicians, and the perceptive insights of Gordon Pepper, an advisor to Margaret Thatcher when the foundations of monetary control were being laid, to revisit and re-examine the monetarist experiment of the 1980s. The authors argue that, in spite of the instinct of the Prime Minister, the authorities never attempted to control the supply of money in the 1980s and only paid lip service to controlling the demand for money. Extraordinary behaviour of bank lending was a significant cause of the Barber boom in the mid-1970s, of the Lawson boom of the 1980s and of the depth of the recession in the early 1990s. They assert that varying interest rates is an ineffective tool to manage lending and controversially propose that the only enduring solution is to control the banks' reserves. The authors forcefully argue that should the UK not become a member of the European Single Currency the debate surrounding monetary base control will need to be reopened. By reassessing a significant era in British economic policy and suggesting a strategy for the future, this book will be of great interest to economic historians, monetary and political economists, policymakers and investment advisers.

The Growth of Service Industries - The Paradox of Exploding Costs and Persistent Demand (Hardcover): Thijs ten Raa, Ronald... The Growth of Service Industries - The Paradox of Exploding Costs and Persistent Demand (Hardcover)
Thijs ten Raa, Ronald Schettkat
R2,066 Discovery Miles 20 660 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Problems arise if budgets for services are held constant whilst prices rise. Education, cultural activities and health services are under constant budgetary pressure. The authors argue that the price of commodities is linked to demand and price increases would therefore seem to threaten the very existence of these services. The paradox of these services is that in spite of their exploding costs, demand persists. Policymakers struggle with the problematic question of whether to limit public service budgets as costs for their provision rise. The service sectors of advanced economies are surprisingly vigorous - the employment of an ever increasing share of the labour force is one phenomenon. Economists are perplexed by the interplay of slow service and fast goods productivity growth and wonder why the demand for services is so persistent. The Growth of Service Industries is intended for use by both policymakers and economists and serves as a useful introduction to service productivity analysis.

Exchange Rate Regimes in the Twentieth Century (Paperback): Derek H. Aldcroft, Michael J. Oliver Exchange Rate Regimes in the Twentieth Century (Paperback)
Derek H. Aldcroft, Michael J. Oliver
R584 Discovery Miles 5 840 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book provides the first comprehensive and accessible account of the evolution of exchange rate regimes in the twentieth century. It presents a chronological, non-technical history and in doing so manages to link the past with the present to shed new light on the merits of different exchange rate systems. Since the golden age before the First World War, the international monetary system has experienced several changes in exchange rate regimes, alternating between fixed and floating rate systems interspersed with managed or dirty floats. The authors examine and assess the evolution of exchange rate regimes since the First World War to the present day. They discuss the forces that have brought about change in order to determine how different regimes affected the economic environment. They consider the merits or otherwise of the respective regimes and assess the evidence and arguments for and against fixed and floating exchange rate systems. Exchange Rate Regimes in the Twentieth Century provides a coherent and manageable analysis of a complex subject. It will prove invaluable to both undergraduates and postgraduates studying economic history, international economics and international studies.

Growth Theory in Historical Perspective - Selected Essays of Theo Van De Klundert (Hardcover): T.Van de Klundert Growth Theory in Historical Perspective - Selected Essays of Theo Van De Klundert (Hardcover)
T.Van de Klundert; Edited by Sjak Smulders
R2,594 Discovery Miles 25 940 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Growth Theory in Historical Perspective is a collection of thirteen carefully selected essays by Theo van de Klundert which demonstrate the development of growth theory over the past forty years. The sequence of chapters reveals the shifts in focus which have occurred since the first formal growth models of the 1940s and 1950s. He illustrates how the Keynesian paradigm was replaced by neo-classical models, which in turn have been superseded by theories of endogenous technical progress, the focus of growth theory in the 1990s. The author explains how the theory of economic growth is strongly shaped by ideas developed in the past. To this extent the book provides a comprehensive overview of the fundamentals of growth theory and develops important modern themes such as firm-specific research and development and the relationship between growth and international trade. Moreover, several of the chapters explore themes which, in the author's view, have been unfairly neglected in recent writings on the theory of growth. These include the role of demand factors, vintage models and issues of distribution, which he believes can still contribute to the current thinking on growth theory. By balancing insights from old and new theories of economic growth, this comprehensive book should prove fascinating reading for students, researchers and scholars of growth theory.

Credit, Interest Rates and the Open Economy - Essays on Horizontalism (Hardcover): Louis-Philippe Rochon, Matias Vernengo Credit, Interest Rates and the Open Economy - Essays on Horizontalism (Hardcover)
Louis-Philippe Rochon, Matias Vernengo
R2,318 Discovery Miles 23 180 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The horizontalist perspective is an extension of the post-Keynesian approach, that has hitherto focused on a theory of credit and money. This book extends horizontalism beyond its traditional boundaries and makes it consistent with the post-Keynesian theories of output and the open economy. The authors compare and contrast the horizontalist position with various orthodox and non-orthodox views on money. They argue that horizontalism is perfectly compatible with liquidity preference, credit constraints, and a flexible interest-rate mark-up, and address recent developments in banking that reinforce the validity of a horizontal schedule of credit-money. The overall intention is to place horizontalism within the current heterodox tradition as a general theory of the creation of money that is consistent with the post-Keynesian view on macroeconomic policy. Credit, Interest Rates and the Open Economy is essential reading for those who wish to expand their theoretical understanding of international financial issues and will be of great interest to those involved in macroeconomics, money and banking and radical economics.

Roberto Lopez-Martinez, Martinez Roberto Lopez, Andrea Piccaluga
R2,553 Discovery Miles 25 530 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The search for the key to economic growth has proved elusive and contentious. This book uses new empirical evidence to propose an integrated approach for achieving strong industrial and technological capabilities to form the basis for regional and national economic development. The authors use the experiences of countries in Europe and Latin America to show that socio-technical constituencies play a fundamental role in innovation based economic development at both a regional and national level. By blending insights from the industrial cluster and national innovation system approaches with the socio-technical constituencies approach, the authors successfully integrate long standing debates such as agency structure and micro-meso-macro analysis. The work is based both on a theoretical effort to build a new framework for economic growth, and on a number of concrete experiences from a number of countries in Europe and Latin America. Knowledge Flows in National Systems of Innovation will prove essential reading for scholars of innovation, technology and economic development.

The Economics of Public Spending - Debts, Deficits and Economic Performance (Hardcover): Hassan Bougrine The Economics of Public Spending - Debts, Deficits and Economic Performance (Hardcover)
Hassan Bougrine
R2,043 Discovery Miles 20 430 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book argues that in many jurisdictions free market advocates have resorted to public sector downsizing and privatization as a means of alleviating problems of unemployment and slow economic growth and that, as a consequence, the strategy of reducing public deficits, balancing budgets and achieving surpluses has become widely accepted as the only road to prosperity. The Economics of Public Spending shows in clear and simple terms that the strategy of public sector downsizing is based on a misleading conception of public finance. The book dispels several myths about public deficits and debts, offering alternative approaches to fiscal and monetary policies. The contributors argue convincingly and authoritatively that the public sector is crucial for economic growth, that budget deficits are required for improving the performance of the private sector and that there is a real need for an economic agenda based on public deficits and low stable real interest rates in order to achieve full employment with high wages, more generous social programmes and sustainable inflation. This fascinating and challenging book will be of great interest to policymakers in government, academic researchers as well as public finance experts and economists.

Structural Macroeconometrics - Second Edition (Hardcover, 2nd Revised edition): David N. DeJong, Chetan Dave Structural Macroeconometrics - Second Edition (Hardcover, 2nd Revised edition)
David N. DeJong, Chetan Dave
R1,291 R965 Discovery Miles 9 650 Save R326 (25%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

"Structural Macroeconometrics" provides a thorough overview and in-depth exploration of methodologies, models, and techniques used to analyze forces shaping national economies. In this thoroughly revised second edition, David DeJong and Chetan Dave emphasize time series econometrics and unite theoretical and empirical research, while taking into account important new advances in the field.

The authors detail strategies for solving dynamic structural models and present the full range of methods for characterizing and evaluating empirical implications, including calibration exercises, method-of-moment procedures, and likelihood-based procedures, both classical and Bayesian. The authors look at recent strides that have been made to enhance numerical efficiency, consider the expanded applicability of dynamic factor models, and examine the use of alternative assumptions involving learning and rational inattention on the part of decision makers. The treatment of methodologies for obtaining nonlinear model representations has been expanded, and linear and nonlinear model representations are integrated throughout the text. The book offers a rich array of implementation algorithms, sample empirical applications, and supporting computer code.

"Structural Macroeconometrics" is the ideal textbook for graduate students seeking an introduction to macroeconomics and econometrics, and for advanced students pursuing applied research in macroeconomics. The book's historical perspective, along with its broad presentation of alternative methodologies, makes it an indispensable resource for academics and professionals.

The Economic Challenge for Europe - Adapting to Innovation Based Growth (Paperback, New edition): Jan Fagerberg, Paolo... The Economic Challenge for Europe - Adapting to Innovation Based Growth (Paperback, New edition)
Jan Fagerberg, Paolo Guerrieri, Bart Verspagen
R631 Discovery Miles 6 310 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Europe's performance relative to the US and countries in Asia is a topic that greatly preoccupies policymakers who are concerned that the European Union is losing ground compared to other, more dynamic, parts of the world. This book presents the scale and scope of the challenges that Europe faces in adjusting to globalization and advances in technology. The evidence assembled in this book points to trends in European Union performance that policymakers will find disconcerting. In many areas, Europe has not kept pace with the technological advances of competitors and seems to have lost its dynamism. Employment creation has been lacklustre, new specializations have been slow to emerge and the rate of innovation has been disappointing. The core message in this book is that the problems Europe faces in key areas such as growth, equality and employment are all related to its failure to take sufficient advantage of technological advances, particularly the information and communication technology (ICT) revolution. It is concluded that a coherent European strategy for upgrading technological capability and embedding new technologies, especially ICTs, in society is long overdue. This book will be indispensable to scholars and policymakers in the areas of economic growth, international competitiveness, innovation, regional development and European studies.

Economic Institutions and Democratic Reform - A Comparative Analysis of Post-Communist Countries (Hardcover): Ole Norgaard, Etc Economic Institutions and Democratic Reform - A Comparative Analysis of Post-Communist Countries (Hardcover)
Ole Norgaard, Etc
R2,262 Discovery Miles 22 620 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Economic Institutions and Democratic Reform rigorously and systematically explores the political effects and consequences of economic reform in more than 20 post-communist countries. By using primary quantitative data and stringent statistical analyses, Ole Norgaard demonstrates that there is no universally applicable economic reform strategy and that popular democracy is often the foundation of a successful economy, rather than a powerful executive or president, as is popularly asserted. The book also shows that generalised models are not productive when studying the complexity of post-communist transformation. The author argues that the danger to democracy comes from the alienation of citizens and the collapse of public service and education systems instigated by individuals who, with few democratic credentials, capture the political playing field. These leaders have often been encouraged by Western governments who believe democracy can only be imposed on reluctant societies by newborn capitalist elites. This book will be essential and challenging reading for political scientists and economists as well as policymakers in NGOs, such as aid agencies and the institutions of the EU.

Regional Economic Change in Russia (Hardcover, illustrated edition): Philip Hanson, Michael Bradshaw Regional Economic Change in Russia (Hardcover, illustrated edition)
Philip Hanson, Michael Bradshaw
R2,544 Discovery Miles 25 440 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Since the demise of communism, Russia has become increasingly disparate. Some regions have grown in strength while others have been less successful. This book examines regional patterns of economic change in Russia by addressing questions such as: * Is Russia a single economic area? * Why are regional economic inequalities increasing? * Are there significant regional differences in the economic regime? * What influence do leaders have in their own regions, and on federal economic policies? * To what extent do central policymakers affect regional outcomes? * How are Russian regions affected by their new openness to foreign trade and investment? Based on research carried out by an international and interdisciplinary group of experts, this book analyses case studies from eight regions as well as testing hypotheses on data for the 77 main administrative regions. It will be of immense value to academics, those working for government and non-government agencies, and business people.

Money, Coordination and Prices (Hardcover): Fieke Vander Lecq Money, Coordination and Prices (Hardcover)
Fieke Vander Lecq
R2,260 Discovery Miles 22 600 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Money, Coordination and Prices explains the phenomenon of nominal price rigidity as a characteristic of a monetary economy by means of an innovative combination of insights, using several strands of economic thought, to analyse the monetary economy. The work connects neoclassical and New Keynesian explanations of the use of money and nominal price rigidity and provides heterodox analyses of the two phenomena. The author integrates the mainstream approach with views from institutional and evolutionary economics, as well as post Keynesian economics. Analyses include: * theories of money and nominal price stickiness * conventions and institutions in coordination problems * trust in a monetary economy * the stability of the monetary economy * the monetary economy as an open self-organizing system. This book will appeal to institutional, monetary, post Keynesian and neoclassical/mainstream economists and academics alike.

Open-Economy Macroeconomics for Developing Countries (Paperback, New edition): Akhand Akhtar Hossain, Anis. Chowdhury Open-Economy Macroeconomics for Developing Countries (Paperback, New edition)
Akhand Akhtar Hossain, Anis. Chowdhury
R655 Discovery Miles 6 550 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Open-Economy Macroeconomics for Developing Countries focuses on fiscal, monetary and exchange rate issues of importance to less developed economies. The book argues that the dichotomy between the short-term macroeconomic stabilization goal and the long-term economic growth objective commonly found in developing countries' policy framework is inappropriate. The authors report empirical evidence to support the proposition that macroeconomic stability is a pre-requisite for sustained economic growth and the root of macroeconomic instability in developing countries lies in the government budget deficits. The book discusses the stabilization tools available to deal with capital flows, supply shocks and the effects of financial deregulation. It opens with a discussion of macroeconomic policy problems for open developing economies and an historical overview of the international institutions such as IMF, GATT and UNCTAD. The authors then provide a comprehensive review of macroeconomic models which are popularly used to analyse policy dilemmas related to internal and external balances of open economies. Having reviewed the institutional and theoretical framework, the authors assess the macroeconomic impact of financial deregulation, capital flows and foreign investment. They address the debt crisis, financial instability, capital flight, currency substitution and exchange rate arrangements. The authors also consider more general issues such as the political economy of macroeconomic management and the institutional framework that may enhance credibility and effectiveness of macroeconomic policy. In conclusion, they stress that the openness of an economy itself acts as a constraint on macroeconomic mismanagement and hence may enhance economic growth. This comprehensive book will be an important addition to the literature, and will be of use to advanced undergraduates and graduates of development economics, development studies and financial and monetary economics.

Financial Structure and Monetary Transmission in Europe - A Cross-Country Study (Hardcover): Gabe J. De Bondt Financial Structure and Monetary Transmission in Europe - A Cross-Country Study (Hardcover)
Gabe J. De Bondt
R1,970 Discovery Miles 19 700 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Due to financial market imperfections it is imperative to analyse the relationship between financial structure and the monetary policy transmission process in Europe to effectively design and implement European monetary policy. Focusing on the years 1980-1995 and providing empirical evidence for six European countries, namely Germany, France, Italy, the UK, Belgium and the Netherlands, the author discusses whether cross-country variations in financial structure have a systematic relationship with inter-country differences in the monetary transmission process. The analysis of this is invaluable as differences in financial structures across EMU countries may hamper the implementation of a common European monetary policy in the future. The conclusion is that some elements of the financial structure are clearly relevant and applicable for European monetary policy and the monetary transmission process in particular. This highly topical book will be of great interest to academics and professional economists in the field of financial, macro and monetary economics and the economics of European integration.

Jan Kakes
R1,969 Discovery Miles 19 690 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The formulation of a common European monetary policy offers an important challenge to policymakers both in Europe and around the globe. The analysis of monetary transmission mechanisms in Europe, and the US, provides insights of great importance as the institutional environment of monetary policy changes. Historically, it has been proved difficult to empirically establish the effects of monetary policy measures on the economy. This study of the monetary transmission mechanism pays close attention to the role of financial markets in the transmission process. The author analyses aspects of monetary transmission, such as interest rates and exchange rates, with evidence from several European countries including the Netherlands, UK and Germany as well as from the US. This research on monetary transmission greatly increases our understanding of the effect, or ineffectiveness, of monetary policy on economies in general. The author presents a comprehensive discussion of the outcomes of empirical research along with an extensive survey of the literature and a discussion of the methods used, since interest in the subject was renewed in the 1980s. This work will be invaluable to policymakers in central banks and government ministries as well as academic researchers and economists alike.
