The Modern Caribbean Economy, Volume II. Economic Development and Public Policy Challenges

Caribbean economies have been faced with mounting challenges arising from the increasing pace of economic globalization. The financial crisis of 2007 further exacerbated economic instability due to high foreign debt, lack of competitiveness, declining productivity, and high unemployment and underemployment. This in turn has precipitated increasing social and environmental problems, including poverty, inequality, crime and violence, and environmental degradation, all of which require new perspectives and policy approaches for transformative change and sustainable development. In this two volume multidisciplinary edited book The Modern Caribbean Economy, Volume I provides scholars and practitioners with alternative theoretical perspectives and concrete policy recommendations, while Volume II discusses economic, industrial, and social problems facing the Caribbean along with pragmatic proposals to successfully deal with these, while building local resilience and enhancing institutional strength in the region.

The drive towards environmentally friendly buildings and infrastructure has led to a growing interest in providing design solutions underpinned by the core principles of sustainability to balance economic, social and environmental factors. Design Economics for the Built Environment: Impact of sustainability on project evaluation presents new directions, reflecting the need to recognise the impact of climate change and the importance of sustainability in project evaluation. The aim is to provide a new approach to understanding design economics in the context of the changing policy environment, legislative and regulatory framework, and increasing economic, environmental and social pressure as result of the sustainability agenda. The book follows a structured approach from theories and principles in the earlier chapters, to the practical applications and emerging techniques focusing on value and social, economic and environmental considerations in making design decisions. It starts with the policy context, building on various theories and principles such as, capital cost, value of design and resource-based theories, the new rules of measurement (NRM) to explore cost planning, the relationship between height and costs, key socio-economic and environmental variables for design appraisal, eco-cost/value ratio (EVR), whole life theory and the treatment of carbon emission as external costs, productivity and efficiency, fiscal drivers and legal framework for carbon reduction, procurement and allocation of risks in contracts. Case studies, practical examples and frameworks throughout reinforce theories and principles and relate them to current practice. The book is essential reading for postgraduate students in architecture, building and quantity surveying and is also a valuable resource for academics, consultants and policy-makers in the built environment.

Tim Alers Economic Development in Scotland

Inhaltsangabe:Introduction: This thesis tries to examine the structures, activities, changes and spatial impacts of economic development in Scotland. Looking at the Scottish economy it has to be considered that Scotland is both an integrated part of the UK and the UK economy and a peripheral region within the UK. Therefore Scotland does not have an economy of its own, but the distinctiveness of the region in terms of location, history and recent political devel-opments justifies a closer examination of the matter. Scotland is in many aspects a very heterogeneous region. This is in particular true for the economic structure and a focus on one region cannot be representative. Edinburgh is an exceptionally prosperous region, not only in Scottish terms. However this prosperity and activity in economic development makes Edinburgh an interesting subject for examination. Thus the focus of this thesis lies on the developments in Edinburgh. Economic development is certainly influenced by a vast number of factors and it is impossible to take all of them into account. Within this thesis the emphasis lies on governmental influence on the developments. However European development measures are not considered. Accordingly the thesis aims to look at the ways the promotion of economic development is carried out in Scotland and tries to assess the measures on the background of the distinctiveness of Scotland and Edinburgh. Thus in the first chapter the thesis takes a look at Scotland as a who...

Edet Lawrence The Paradox of Economic Growth without Development in Nigeria

This academic piece is a humble and diligent contributions aimed at assessing the level of economic development in Nigeria, compared to its rapid and appreciable economic growth.

Handbook of Environmental Economics: Volume 3: Economywide and International Environmental Issues

Many of the frontiers of environmental economics research are at the interface of large-scale and long-term environmental change with national and global economic systems. This is also where some of the most of challenging environmental policy issues occur. Volume 3 of the Handbook of Environmental Economics provides a synthesis of the latest theory on economywide and international environmental issues and a critical review of models for analyzing those issues. It begins with chapters on the fundamental relationships that connect environmental resources to economic growth and long-run social welfare. The following chapters consider how environmental policy differs in a general-equiIibrium setting from a partial-equilibrium setting and in a distorted economy from a perfect economy. The volume closes with chapters on environmental issues that cross or transcend national borders, such as trade and the environment, biodiversity conservation, acid rain, ozone depletion, and global climate change. The volume provides a useful reference for not only natural resource and environmental economists but also international economists, development economists, and macroeconomists.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2007 in the subject Economics - Finance, grade: 1,7, Helmut Schmidt University - University of the Federal Armed Forces Hamburg (Professur für Volkswirtschaftslehre, insb. Finanzwissenschaft), language: English, abstract: This paper addresses a ma jor paradox of the economic world, the seemingly negative impact of wealth in form of natural resources and development aid on growth. In the last 50 years a striking discrepancy in the economic performance of countries blessed by massive windfall gains became obvious. Robust empirical evidence was produced showing an inverse relation of both natural resources and development aid on economic growth. Regressions involving migrant's remittances did also yield ambiguous results under certain conditions. I try to embrace all windfall gains under the notion of "Easy Rents", characterised by easy generation of, easy access to and easy control over the abundant monetary assets.The influence of the rents is proposed to work through biased price distortions, induced by sectoral competition, rent-seeking and \bad" economic policy, creating unfavourable conditions for the growth-driving tradables sector.The conducted research and empirical testing indicates the appreciation of relative prices caused by political and economic disturbance. Following the results, a strong tendency of "Easy Rents" to exert deteriorating influence on a economy seems to be in place.

Nzila Masunga Masunga Challenges in Balancing Government and Investor Interests Under a Production Sharing Agreement

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject Business economics - Law, , language: English, abstract: This paper argues that, although the government is fully confident that there has been enough exploration success to justify higher government take and increase other socio-economic benefits under the new terms, there remain challenges towards encouraging foreign investment in petroleum exploration and development activities in the country. A critical aspect of an oil and gas exploration and production agreement is balancing the interests of the state and investors. The broad objective of any resource rich government is to insure that it maximizes as much revenues as possible from its natural resource and insuring that there is always an appropriate level of investment in exploration and development activities in the country. The investors on the other hand are interested to maximize as much profit as possible by minimizing the costs, quick recovery of these costs and working with stable governments. In order to ensure a sustainable development of exploration and development activities in the country these varying state and investor's interest has to be balanced.

Herb Bentz Rationing Earth. Economic Strategy by Design

Our economy has spiralled out of control with too much focus on the quantity of production. The way to reduce this wasteful overproduction of goods and services is to increase their quality. In this groundbreaking book, industrial designer Herb Bentz explains how to fix the economy and break the environment versus economy deadlock. Bentz tells us how the use of good design can improve the quality of what we produce and how a beneficial growth in quality can substitute for the destructive increase in quantity. Tying together many diverse aspects of the economy—economic growth, unemployment, the welfare state, and the need to ration—Rationing Earth provides a critical analysis and a way forward at this crucial moment. Despite high wealth in rich countries, there is still poverty and inadequate funding for social programs. This unjustified austerity has resulted in a persistence of economic insecurity, the proliferation of poor quality products, and inadequate action on environmental problems. Bentz provides an economic solution from a designer’s perspective. By using elements of design thinking to achieve an overarching synthesis of the world’s challenging problems, including effectiveness of government, the opposing demands of capital and labour, positive and negative effects of technology, and the absolute boundaries of a finite earth, he presents practical solutions to the conflicting needs for economic growth, full employment, and reduced consumption. In each of these areas...

Ajaat Gunti Liberalisation of the Indian economy

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: With the onset of reforms to liberalise the Indian economy in July of 1991, a new chapter has dawned for India and her billion plus population. This period of economic transition has had a tremendous impact on the overall economic development of almost all major sectors of the economy, and its effects over the last decade can hardly be overlooked. Besides, it also marks the advent of the real integration of the Indian economy into the global economy. This era of reforms has also ushered in a remarkable change in the Indian mindset, as it deviates from the traditional values held since Independence in 1947, such as „self reliance” and socialistic policies of economic development, which mainly due to the inward looking restrictive form of governance, resulted in the isolation, overall backwardness and inefficiency of the economy, amongst a host of other problems. This, despite the fact that India has always had the potential to be on the fast track to prosperity. Now that India is in the process of restructuring her economy, with aspirations of elevating herself from her present desolate position in the world, the need to speed up her economic development is even more imperative. And having witnessed the positive role that Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) has played in the rapid economic growth of most of the Southeast Asian countries and most notably China, India has embarked on an ambitious plan to emulate the successes of her neighbours to the east and...

Going beyond the new economy-‘hype’, the study was aimed at understanding the ways that business professionals make sense of the contemporary economy. In doing so, a social psychological perspective was taken, allowing multiple realities to emerge. Behavioural economists’ and economic psychologists’ conceptualisations of economic life are challenged. They hinge on the presumption that individuals act independently from their social environment and deviate as cognitive misers from a single legitimate economic rationality. By contrast, this study drew on a social constructionist framework. More specifically, it employed social representations theory (Moscovici, 1961/76; Moscovici, 1984), which rehabilitated common sense as a legitimate form of knowledge. The theory of social representations as a theory of knowledge proved as a sensitive and more sophisticated tool to analyse contemporary economy in its manifestations in professionals’ common sense. It is suggested to view the notion of common sense independently of role constellations. Given this framework, this study took a ‘snapshot’ of the contemporary representational field of the new economy amongst business professionals. Particularly, the study was focused on exploring the ‘taken-for-granted’ and beliefs underpinning discourses and symbols. Data from semi-structured intervi...

Vusi Gumede Political Economy of Post-apartheid South Africa

The book, made up of three parts, covers a wide spectrum of political economy issues on post-apartheid South Africa. Although the text is mainly descriptive, to explain various areas of the political economy of post-apartheid South Africa, the first and the last parts provide illuminating insights on the kind of society that is emerging during the twenty-one years of democracy in the country. The book discusses important aspects of the political history of apartheid South Africa and the evolution of post-apartheid society, including an important recap of the history of southern Africa before colonialism. The text is a comprehensive description of numerous political economy phenomena since South Africa gained its political independence and covers some important themes that have not been discussed in detail in other publications on post-apartheid South Africa. The book also updates earlier work of the author on policy and law making, land and agriculture, education and training as well as on poverty and inequality in post-apartheid South Africa thereby providing a wide-ranging overview of the socio-economic development approaches followed by the successive post-apartheid administrations. Interestingly, three chapters focus on various aspects of the post-apartheid South African economy: economic policies, economic empowerment and industrial development. Through the lens of the notion of democratic developmental state and taking apartheid colonialism as a point of departure, the ...

A historical perspective shows that Ocean and its adjacent seas at all times, allowed coastal communities to adapt to a very volatile environment through many technological changes. The recent development of marine biotechnology , the discovery of a great pharmacopoeia especially in reef environments , the development of marine renewables , are examples which show that man can develop through these new technologies property and services of the ocean. But this development resources under pressure of global change requires not only taking into account technical, but also social and political.

The innovation capacity-building can contribute to improve the integration of developing countries in the world economy. The economic development has been a much discussed subject of the period after the Second World War until the 1990s. After the implementation of a global regulation system for trade and capital flows in the 1990s, the development economics has almost disappeared in favor of different theories on globalization, on finance and on international trade. The purpose of this book is to show that the innovation capacity building in developing countries is necessary to improve their weight in the world economy and to facilitate their economic ties with northern countries. However, there are important difficulties due to the lack of proactive economic policies. Our aim is to contribute to the revival of the development economics. The issue of improving the well-being of the world population as a whole is highly topical. However, studies neglect the need to give economic, financial, technological and political resources to developing countries to promote their own development. One of the most important means is to strengthen their innovation capabilities that allow them to better integrate into the world economy.

Shahdad Naghshpour Fiscal Policy Within the Is-LM Framework

Undoubtedly, what happens to the economy affects the lives of the citizens of a country, and often the lives of people in other countries around the globe. In addition to natural disasters two things affect the economy more than anything else: monetary and fiscal policies. Fiscal policy and monetary policy represent forms of government intervention to influence market performance. Fiscal policy relates to government spending and revenue collection; monetary policy relates to the supply of money, which is controlled by factors such as reserve requirements and interest rates. If there were a universally accepted set of rules that prescribe appropriate actions to bring and sustain prosperity to the economy the study of economics would have been a positive science, as opposed to a collection of normative beliefs. The study of these policies is normative in nature because fiscal and monetary policies do not necessarily impact everyone equally or in the same way. In other words not everybody loses or gains equally as the result of fiscal and monetary policies. Nevertheless, there are non-normative economic theories that explain the expected outcome of specific fiscal or monetary policies.The economists that advocate for fiscal or monetary policies generally agree on the economic consequences produced by each policy when implemented. What differentiates the economists is the degree to which they believe in the effectiveness of the policy, their ability to know the extent of the need...

Gideon Gono Zimbabwe's Casino Economy. Extraordinary Measures for Extraordinary Challenges

This is the remarkable first-hand account of the tenure of the Governor of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe, from December 2003 until November 2008. A close colleague of President Robert Mugabe, he explains why he cherishes that opportunity to serve him and his country. A number of beliefs underpin his account of his tenure: every nation seeks development in terms of economic growth, equity, social cohesion, political stability, democracy and human rights as well as sovereignty or national autonomy in international affairs, and his account is therefore in a development context, the object of public policy. He contends that Zimbabweans have been denied the pursuit of development which is in a precarious state, because of "illegal economic sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe by Britain and its allies who have sought regime change in the country and because of serious gaps and weaknesses in the policy response to the sanctions by both the government and the business community in our country". The result of political turmoil and market failure is that order and stability have been compromised and the Zimbabwe economy is now drive by a casino ethic, with devastating effects. He outlines the Reserve bank response to the challenges, and concludes by mapping a socio-economic roadmap for reform and recovery. After an introductory bio-professional note, the chapters cover: The Invisible Hand's Dirty Politics; The Market Economy as a Casino Economy; Corrupting Banking and the Stock Ex...

Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Art - Arts Management, grade: 10.0 out of 10.0, University of València (DCADHA), course: Gestión Cultural, language: English, abstract: For at least three decades the topic of culture has been one of the central elements of development cooperation policies around the world. Numerous reports on the implications of culture in societal and human development processes have inspired researchers and intellectuals as well as policy-makers and cultural operators to look for new tools in order to ensure the adequate position of culture in overall development cooperation strategies. In the context of the current worldwide economic crisis, the challenge of effective and inclusive development cooperation seems more pressing then ever.Today, German and European decision-makers, local authorities, the private sector and civil society, are taking an increasing interest in culture in its various forms as a contributing factor to development on a human scale. It has shown that cultural awareness shows off in terms of economic performance and human development, but also that cultural resources are infinite if one knows how to apply their creative potential. Examples at local as well as at German, European and worldwide levels, show that culture as a resource for development has a high potential for attracting businesses, job creation, generating income and investment, while providing a matrix in which anyone can invent the terms of his or h...

Kano. Environment, Society and Development

Kano: Environment, Society and Development is a collection of research works on Kano and its environs. Though largely a rural economy, the region is known for its huge population, extensive landmass and abundant natural resources. As a richly endowed part of Nigeria, it is not surprising that it has attracted several scholarly studies on its physical and human environments, including the region's potential for leading the charge in the country's quest for economic development. Contributions in this volume cover a wide range of critical environmental, economic, political, demographic, cultural and health issues. The diversity of the themes explored attests to the complexity and breadth of the curriculum of contemporary academic studies of geography. The authors worked on the principle that there is a dynamic relationship between man and his environment and noted that in the Kano region, environmental resources play a great role in supporting and developing peoples' livelihoods. They also explored the complex pattern of relationships between the physical and human environmental resources utilised in the area. They equally interrogated the current policies and management of environmental resources in Nigeria, which are too frequently underpinned by a perspective that views African societies primarily as backward and lacking in livelihood sustainability.

Christian Brandes The Effects of Diversity on Economic and Political Stability

Master's Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Economics - Other, grade: 1,7, language: English, abstract: Many developing countries do not only suffer from weak institutions, poor economic performance and corruption, but also from separatist movements and violent civil conflicts. The question arises why some countries could achieve economic growth and development, while others never experienced considerable economic development and are trapped in a vicious circle of re-occurring violent conflicts and economic deterioration. Since developing countries tend to be more diverse in terms of ethnicity, language and religion and many civil conflicts appear to have an ethnic or religious component, diversity is regarded as a main cause of economic and political instability. Furthermore, many scholars consider higher levels of diversity in the least developed countries to be the crucial factor that leads to inefficient policy decisions and impedes growth and development.This master thesis addresses the question how diversity affects economic and political stability and elaborates appropriate parameters which are further used in a composite indicator (CI) to quantify a country's stability, respectively instability. The thesis is structured as follows:After a review of the literature on the relations between diversity and economic development and civil conflicts in chapter two, the historic and environmental conditions under which different ethnic and linguistic groups emerg...

Seminar paper from the year 2002 in the subject Business economics - Economic and Social History, grade: 1,3, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (Economics), 18 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Japan with its 126.8 million inhabitants is the unique example of a Non-Western economy achieving an equal standard of living with other Westerncountries. On top of that, the Japanese economy is the second largest in theworld. The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) Japans has been $ 4.7 trillions inthe year 2000. This makes Japans economy about 2.5 times larger than theGerman one measured in Dollars.1 In the light of Japans extraordinary role inworld economics, it would be very interesting to look at the background ofJapans historical development of economics. Unfortunately there is non or littleknowledge in Germany about this. The picture, we have here, is ofteninfluenced by clichés such as the Japanese imperialism, the pervasivegovernment bureaucracy and the impressing Japanese economic growth.However, the economy in Japan is no longer growing. There are structuralproblems. We have to ask the question how the ´Japanese Model´ can go on. Iwill therefore give an overview about the Japanese economy and itspossibilities in the future.The start of modern economic growth in the 1870s is closely connected withthe opening Japans to the rest of the world. To understand this development,we have to take a closer look at the economic history before 1854. Thus, mystarting poin...

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: Near East, Near Orient, grade: 1,3, University of Cologne (Wirtschafts- und Sozialwissenschaftlichen Fakultät der Universität zu Köln), course: Internationale Politik, language: English, abstract: During the recent years Turkey has put immense efforts in healing relations with its neighbors, establishing closer ties regarding various interest areas, be it economic, cultural or political issues and acting as a facilitator in its close environment. Interestingly, this kind of approach was increasingly voiced at various international occasions since the Justice and Development Party (Adalet ve Kalkınma Partisi-AKP) came to power in 2002. However, once one looks back in history, Turkey during the 1900s conducted a very different foreign policy strategy and viewed its close neighbors with suspicion and mistrust. This study argues that there has been a reassessment in Turkish foreign policy which has helped Turkey to acquire a new role in the Middle Eastern region. In this regard, this research aims to analyze whether there has been a changeover in Turkish Foreign policy and if so, what were the consequences regarding Turkey's relations with its neighbors. Along with that purpose, this paper will elaborate on the factors which have shaped Turkish foreign policy, primarily on economic aspirations. Furthermore, the goal of this research is to focus particularly on Turkey's relations ...

Unequal Democracy: The Political Economy of the New Gilded Age

The first edition of Unequal Democracy was an instant classic, shattering illusions about American democracy and spurring scholarly and popular interest in the political causes and consequences of escalating economic inequality. This revised and expanded edition includes two new chapters on the political economy of the Obama era. One presents the Great Recession as a "stress test" of the American political system by analyzing the 2008 election and the impact of Barack Obama's "New New Deal" on the economic fortunes of the rich, middle class, and poor. The other assesses the politics of inequality in the wake of the Occupy Wall Street movement, the 2012 election, and the partisan gridlock of Obama's second term. Larry Bartels offers a sobering account of the barriers to change posed by partisan ideologies and the political power of the wealthy. He also provides new analyses of tax policy, partisan differences in economic performance, the struggle to raise the minimum wage, and inequalities in congressional representation. President Obama identified inequality as "the defining challenge of our time." Unequal Democracy is the definitive account of how and why our political system has failed to rise to that challenge. Now more than ever, this is a book every American needs to read.

Andreas Hahn Between Presidential Power and Legislative Veto. The Impact of Polity and Politics on Economic Reforms in Brazil

Doktorarbeit / Dissertation aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Politik - Politische Systeme - Allgemeines und Vergleiche, Universität Duisburg-Essen, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: The pace and scope of the Brazilian economic development in the 1980s and 1990s is intrinsically linked to the wide-ranging discussion of political and economic reform projects. In the wake of the crisis of the import-substitution economic model a wide array of approaches and theories revolved around one basic question: When there occurs a crisis in the economy - whatever definition of crisis may be applied in a particular case - which are the best ways of overcoming anti-reform resistances, regain economic growth and promote sustainable and ―future-approved‖ development? In the most general sense a crisis of the political or economic system can be referred to as two-dimensional: on the one hand it means the shattering and dis-equilibrating of a formerly successful status quo, on the other hand it opens up the necessity to find a new status quo (or status quo post) that can be deemed compatible to the new economic, domestic as well as international, circumstances. In fact, the longer a prosperous status quo lasts, the more difficult a subsequent change will get. Path-dependencies develop, stable institutions arise, group interests and organizations take root and expectations about growth, inflation, external trade and other variables cement into place.

Tulus Tambunan Global Economic Crisis and ASEAN Economy

This book is about the global economic crisis occurred in the period 2008-2009 with the reference to the economy of member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). The main reason that this book focuses on ASEAN is simply because since 1990 until today the region has been hit by two big economic crisis. The first one was known as the Asian financial crisis happened in 1997-1998, which is considered merely as a regional economic crisis since it was originated within the region and its has not really produced a global economic recession. The second one was that in 2008-09, which started first in 2007 as a huge financial crisis in the United States (US) and then spread worldwide. The experiences with these two big economic crises strongly suggest that the economy of many ASEAN member countries, especially Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines is vulnerable to any economic shocks; although the level of vulnerability to economic crises may vary by country.

Jared Kolb The Need For Crisis

Responding to environmental problems is becoming an increasing priority of the world's population. As the developed world has pushed the boundaries of economic development, it is also principally responsible for many global environmental issues. Sustainable development has emerged as a potential solution to these problems, but is often so vague in definition, it provides little help. How then are we to affect change on environmental issues? This book seeks to answer such a question through a comparative case study, examining the differences between Canadian and German approaches to climate change and material waste disposal policy. The project works through the sustainable development literature and utilizes The Natural Step framework to make policy recommendations. It is the goal of this book to provide policymakers, interest groups and citizens alike with tools to improve the state of the environment everywhere.

Masterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2017 im Fachbereich Politik - Internationale Politik - Allgemeines und Theorien, Note: 4.08/5.0, Covenant University (College of Leadership and development Studies), Veranstaltung: International Relations, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: This study is focused on changing the culture of Nigeria's economy from a mono-product oil based economy to a diversified economy. Although the non-oil sector of Nigeria's economy is a vast one, this study focuses on the African catfish aquaculture industry because of its huge lucrative potentials of contribution to the diversification of Nigeria's economy. This research will help the average Nigerian citizen who is being ravaged with poverty due to the on-going economic recession that keeps coming back in every administration. It will also help policy makers promulgate sound policies that support economy diversification and condemn the mono-cultural nature of the economy. Since Nigeria leads the production of African Catfish on the continent of Africa this research should make the government see sense in investing in the production of African Catfish on a large scale which in turn will generate massive employment and contribute to the diversification of the economy leading to economic wealth and sustainable development instead of spending $700 million USD on importing fish every year. Lastly, it will help future researchers in the field of international trade and economy since the motive is to add to the gro...

Winner of the Royal Town Planning Institute award for research excellence This critical examination of the development and implementation of planning gain is timely given recent changes to the economic and policy environment. The book looks both at the British context as well as experience in other developed economies and takes stock of how the policy has evolved. It examines the rationale for planning gain, how it has delivered substantial funds for infrastructure and affordable housing and, in the light of this, how it might continue to play a role in the funding of these. It also draws on overseas experience, for example on impact fees and public sector land assembly. It looks at lessons from the past for future policy, both for Britain and for countries overseas. Mechanisms to tap development value are also a global phenomenon in developed market economies – whether through formal taxation or negotiated contributions. As fiscal austerity becomes an increasingly challenging issue, ‘planning gain’ has grown in importance as a potential source of funding for infrastructure and new affordable housing, with many countries keen to examine, learn from, and adapt the experience of others. a critical commentary of planning gain as a policy timely post credit crunch analysis addresses recent planning policy changes

Перская Виктория Вадимовна, Глуховцев Всеволод Эдуардович Multipolarity: myth or reality?

Authors of this research analyse transition to multipolarity as a way to secure sustainable dynamic development and overcoming of the negative trends observed recently in the global community. Authors believe that multipolarity represents a combination of political and economic factors and in the world of globalisation it is the economy where new poles / concentration centres for political interests, economic relationship and fair trade are formed. Multipolarity requires elimination of confrontation between such poles / centres based on armaments race and extensive use of military strategies for political and economic purposes. Authors analyse: unipolarity in the world of globalisation; possibilities of return to bipolarity and multipolarity given the growing number of entities subject to international law and loss of territorial integrity by some states; regionalisation and its main tools and methods (strategic partnership and regional integration) for transition to multipolarity (by analysing how these methods function in specific regional agreements); role of the Russian economic policy in today's environment for gradual and ongoing development of national economy in the global multipolar economic system; monetary and financial aspects of incentives programmes related to transition to multipolarity and sustainable operation of the world's monetary system. This research is recommended for the use by government bodies and scientific and research institutes, and also for education of undergraduate and post-graduate students majoring in Economics and for additional training of government officials. Dear readers, we hope that the range of aspects we research in this book will let you share our point of view and apply the proposed solutions and concepts in your work.
