Foreign Ownership of Canadian Industry (Paperback, 3rd): A.E. Safarian Foreign Ownership of Canadian Industry (Paperback, 3rd)

Foreign ownership is an ongoing national policy issue for Canadians, and a matter of utmost concern in the public mind. Recently, the issue has been hotly debated in sectors as diverse as telecommunications, mining, technology, retail, steel, and aerospace. Foreign Ownership of Canadian Industry, A.E. Safarian's classic investigation into the behaviour of branch-plant firms in Canada, has proven an enduring and important analysis of this national policy problem and is now back in print. This third edition of Foreign Ownership of Canadian Industry features a new preface contextualizing Safarian's influential work against contemporary economic issues and policies. As the question of foreign takeovers becomes increasingly critical not only in Canada but in other countries as well, Safarian emphasizes the continuity of concerns over who owns a country's industries.

East Asian Capitalism - Diversity and Dynamism (Paperback): Wendy Dobson, A.E. Safarian East Asian Capitalism - Diversity and Dynamism (Paperback)

What price will North American business pay if it fails to develop an understanding of the role of East Asia in the transformation of global competition? Competition in this region has been intensifying as the pace of technological change speeds up and new competitors appear. Canada has major opportunities in its economic relation-ships with the rapidly emerging dynamic East Asian economies. But the diversity and dynamism of East Asia's capitalism must be understood by those who wish to meet their competitors there successfully. Understanding how and why businesses are organised the way they are, and how they are changing, will help considerably in penetrating East Asian markets.

Asian business systems should be understood for their remarkable diversity, across economies as well as within economies. The essays in this book explain the origins and prospects of East Asia's major business players - the Japanese keiretsu, Korean chaebol, China's emerging industry structure and business groups, and family networks in Southeast Asia and Taiwan. Most Asian businesses emphasize cooperative business relations, based most often on family and other informal ties, and cooperation with the state. To identify future business partners, Canadian firms must understand the strategies of other firms and governments: the linkages between trade and investment; and innovative business systems and how to work with them.

The purpose of the Hongkong Bank of Canada Papers on Asia series is to provide practical information, in the form of timely and readable works, to Canadian business and government decision makers that will help increase knowledge and familiarity with the distant markets of East Asia. This series establishes benchmarks against which Canada's future can be measured systematically.

Volume I, Benchmarking the Canadian Business Presence in East Asia explained Canada's relatively modest business presence in the region and outlined the high costs of entering into these dynamic markets. East Asian Capitalism: Diversity and Dynamism examines these systems as one aspect of reducing such entry costs. This volume is the first comparative analysis of Asian business systems published in Canada.

This volume is the third in a series that examines Canada's economic relationships with the countries of East Asia. The purpose of this volume is to illuminate the links among the peoples of the region that Canadians needs to understand when doing business abroad or cooperating with East Asians in North America. The book's six papers examine the role of culture in institutional similarities and differences, both within East Asia and between East Asia and the west, the impact immigrants have on the receiving economy, the role of education and human capital in economic growth, and the role international linkages like trade, investment, cooperation and immigration play in the spread of knowledge.

The HSBC Bank Canada Papers on Asia series was begun in 1995 to examine Canada's relationship with the East Asian economies and to reduce the information barriers resulting from distance and unfamiliarity in these markets. Six years on from the inception of the series, much has changed in the international environment. The Asian economies suffered a significant crash, a rapid rebound, only to slow again in 2000-2001. This, the sixth and last volume in the series, looks to the future. This new volume focuses on key issues facing the region that corporations and governments should understand, including East Asian regionalization initiatives, obstacles to continued rapid growth in China, aging and pension reform, and the changing security environment. In addition, the Canadian business performance six years on is re-evaluated.

With contributions from leading scholars intimately familiar with both Canadian and East Asian business practices, these volumes are an indispensable resource for corporations and governments looking to expand their business into East Asia, or for anyone who wants to better understand Canada's complex relationship with the Asian countries.

Since the collapse of the global financial markets in 2008, economists and commentators have looked back to the Great Depression of the 1930s to discover similarities and solutions for recovery. Contributing to this crucial moment, renowned economist A.E. Safarian has added a new preface to his classic study of the Great Depression, discussing the present crisis and suggesting ways in which future crises might be avoided. Essential reading for economists, historians, and politicians, The Canadian Economy in the Great Depression is the definitive study of the country's worst period of economic failure, covering the period from the stock market's rise in the roaring 1920s, through the Great Crash, to the destitution of the 1930s and the eventual economic recovery. Countless students, journalists, and political leaders, including current US Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke, have used it to better comprehend the complicated nature and history of the markets. With remarkable clarity Safarian untangles the web of relations that led to - and sustained - the Great Depression while also examining the economic controls and stimuli put in place during the Depression and how and why these measures failed. This new edition introduces The Canadian Economy in the Great Depression to a new generation, particularly those concerned about the possibility of another Great Depression.

This volume examines how foreign firms, which are entering or operating in various Asian countries, have responded to the obstacles and opportunities which were identified in the preceding volumes of this series. There is an overview chapter and seven case studies of Canadian and American-based businesses.

The studies cover a variety of sectors such as telecommunication, finance, and engineering services. The authors highlight a range of issues that have to be resolved when operating in particular countries. The outcome of the bargaining process on entry into another country, for example, or the approach taken in personnel relations, can be critical to success or failure.

Benchmarking the Canadian Business Presence in East Asia (Paperback): Wendy Dobson, A.E. Safarian Benchmarking the Canadian Business Presence in East Asia (Paperback)
Wendy Dobson, A.E. Safarian
R539 Discovery Miles 5 390 Out of stock

Why has Canada's trade with the East Asian economies declined when these economies are booming? What can be done about this performance?

Benchmarking the Canadian Business Presence in East Asia is the first in a series that examines Canadian economic relationships with the countries of East Asia. This volume examines the apparent paradox that even though East Asia is the world's most dynamic region, Canadian exports to the region have been declining since the late 1980s. In accounting for this paradox the study explores Asians' perceptions of Canadian performance and offers strategic suggestions from six of Canada's leading authorities on East Asia and international business.

This book will help Canadian managers to better understand: the strategies of Japanese multinationals and other East Asian firms and governments, the linkages between trade and investment, and the nature of the different business systems. It also establishes a systematic benchmark against which to judge future progress by Canadian business in the region.
