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.

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2013 in the subject Economics - International Economic Relations, National University of Study & Research in Law, course: BA.LLB, language: English, abstract: The concept of a Foreign Directed Investment is a very important part of the Indian Economy because Economic liberalization had varying effects on the behavior of economic factors and therefore on the evolution of various economic sectors and the Indian economy as a whole. Liberalizing reforms were intended to have a strong impact on the investment process. The method of allowing FDI started in the 1990's, when the economy was liberalized, thereby allowing foreign goods to this paper tries to examine the developments in both economic and political aspects, relating to the growth in the FDI. We also evaluate and try to establish whether there is any relation between the FDI and the economic growth and prosperity across the various Indian states. In other words, has the link between the economic growth of a state and the amount of FDI become stronger in the aftermath of the reforms? Another point to notice is that there appears to be a large amount of regional income disparity between the states due to the larger amounts of association of FDI.

David Smith Sophisticated Modelling Tools of the Economic Analysis of Tourism

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2017 in the subject Tourism, , language: English, abstract: Economic impact refers to the changes in the economic contribution resulting from specific events or activities that comprise 'shocks' to the tourism system. Tourism Satellite Accounts (TSA) are a statistical tool. They are used to report how much the tourism sector has contributed to an economy and how important the tourism sector is compared to other sectors in the economy. Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) tourism model can provide more realistic analytical recommendations to policy makers. More specifically, the model can be used to measure economy-wide yield for tourism destinations. The paper first outlines the nature and importance of TSAs as a measure of the economic contribution of tourism to an economy. TSAs based estimates of the direct contribution of tourism in Australia are provided to illustrate the use of this tool. The paper then discusses the importance of developing TSAs at the regional level and the approaches that can be employed (bottom up, top down, mixed), as well as the limitations of TSAs as a policy instrument. It then discusses CGE modelling as a tool of economic impact analysis providing CGE based estimates of the economic impacts of increased inbound tourism to Queensland to illustrate the use of this technique. The analysis is expected to enhance stakeholder understanding the separate roles that TSAs and CGE modelling can play in d...

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject Economics - Case Scenarios, grade: 1.3, Otto Beisheim School of Management Vallendar, language: English, abstract: This paper analyzes the path that Brazil?s economy has taken to reach today's status; the status of a stable economy that shows high potential to meet the challenging expectations that economists set on it. The idea is to source the roots of the economic stability and performance of Latin America?s largest country and to highlight the implications it will have in the near and remote future. Chapter 2 focuses on the Real Plan launched in 1994. A set of reforms which transformed Brazil's economy from a protected economy facing four-digit inflation rates into a stable economy capable of competing with developed economies. It discusses the implementation of the Real Plan, its measures and its positive and negative consequences for the Brazilian economy.Furthermore we are going to deal with the recent past of Brazil's economy since the presidential elections in 2002, when the leader of the workers' party Lula da Silva was elected. We focus on the economic policy of the president and its government, whose election has almost led to the default of the Brazilian state because financial markets were afraid that the socialist candidate would pursue a 180 degree turn compared to the neoliberal economic policy of his predecessor. We analyze why Brazil was one of the last countries being affected by the financial...

Asmare Workneh Alamrew The Impact of Fiscal Policy Shocks on Ethiopian Economy

Master's Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Economics - Finance, , language: English, abstract: Fiscal policy is one of the macroeconomic policies which play a decisive role on economic growth; especially in developing economies which have many economic and social bottlenecks. This study examines the impacts of fiscal policy shock on Ethiopian economy; through applying static compatible general equilibrium (Stage CGE) model which allows quantifying the impacts of fiscal instrument shock on the economy and welfare of households. Fiscal problems like small tax revenue and consistent fiscal deficit put its own major influences on developing economies performance. The study uses 2009/10 Ethiopian SAM as an input for the model and applies three simulation scenarios. In the first simulation, tariff cut affects GDP and household welfare negatively. In the second simulation increasing direct tax has negative impact on total GDP. The other alternative simulation scenario is reducing direct tax and which give a positive change on the total GDP. In general, the government should reduce direct tax to improve economic performance. In addition, liberalizing tariff is not advisable for Ethiopian economy.

Noel Marx How cryptocurrencies can empower the process of innovation in the economy

Academic Paper from the year 2017 in the subject Economics - Monetary theory and policy, grade: 9,0/10, Fontys University of Applied Sciences Venlo, language: English, abstract: Cryptocurrencies have significantly grown in value over the last couple of years. Nevertheless, there is a real concern about their ability to disrupt existing payment systems by facing complex technological and economic issues. However, cryptocurrencies have been claimed to be an innovation which will change financial interaction between people and businesses. The main innovation in cryptocurrencies is that they are based on cryptographic proof instead of trust, enabling two willing parties to transact directly, anonymously, and irreversibly with each other in a decentralized manner without the need for a trusted third party to verify all transactions. It requires an economic analysis about what issues are keeping cryptocurrencies from being accepted in economy and how these issues might be solved to make a cryptocurrency strong enough to have an impact on world's economy. This leads to the main research question: What issues must be solved to make a cryptocurrency a strong currency that is able to strengthen the process of innovation in the economy?

“Growing a New Economy is a great primer if you want to get up to speed on the dangers lurking in the global economy. The book offers an incisive survey of how financial debt, inequality, resource scarcity and ecological damage have brought the world to the brink of disaster. The authors provide a long-term agenda for green, systemic change. A most elucidating and educating read.”—James B. Quilligan, political economist; advisor to Pierre Trudeau, Jimmy Carter, Willy Brandt, and other world leaders.An increasing number of experts agree: today’s financial and environmental crisis is a sign that something is fundamentally wrong with our economic system. The same experts, however, have yet to present viable solutions. Growing a New Economy does just that. In this pioneering book, we are finally presented with a comprehensive alternative to free market capitalism.The global economic reforms we have seen in recent years--be they conservative, leftist, or green—have been unable to change the destructive course of our economy. It’s time for systems change. It’s time to move from the power of the corporation to the power of cooperation, from the centralized power of the board rooms to the decentralized power of economic democracy.The authors of this book present a detailed, yet easy-to-understand, analysis of the main causes of our economic and environmental problems.

The financial deregulation of the last quarter century has meant large flows of funds around the world seeking the highest risk-adjusted return for investors. Real estate is now established as an important asset class and advances in information technology provide the necessary tools to complement global developments in real estate finance and investment. A variety of investment vehicles have emerged, andReal Estate Finance in the New Economy examines these along with financing and risk in the context of globalization, deregulation and an increasingly integrated international world economy by exploring questions like: How have real estate financial structures evolved as economies grow and become internationalised? What role do economic change and financial systems play in the development of real estate investment? Are the risks associated with the ‘new economy’ really new? What is the future direction for real estate financing? The authors develop an economic framework for discussions on individual financial products to examine how real estate financial structures change with economic growth and internationalisation and also to show how developments in real estate finance impact economic growth.

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...

The bases for this paper are the debates that were brought by the west as well as by the Zimbabwean government. This incorporate democratization returns to rule law and terminates the culture of human rights abuses.

Specifically, the paper explores the insights of the policy and its feasibility in terms of implementation issues and strategies vital to its successful implementation. The paper further validates the realization of the policy in contrast to its implementation being viewed as a mere political rhetoric.The paper emphasizes that policy by itself cannot solve a specific public problem not until it is practically implemented. The paper agrees with the notion that decentralization is indeed a step forward for Zambia. The paper concludes that the Government's commitment to implement the decentralization policy as a priority still remains to be seen just how practically the commitment was to be translated into reality or it could just also be another political rhetoric.

Monika Roth Influence of European Integration on the Bargaining Power of German Trade Unions

Diplomarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich BWL - Wirtschaftspolitik, Freie Universität Berlin (Otto Suhr Institut - Politikwissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Politikwissenschaft, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: German trade unions' influence in industrial relations at the national level is curbed by the side effects of European integration. Supranationalization implies the transfer of regulatory power from the national to the supranational level. In the various policy areas, integration and supranationalization proceed at different speeds with regard to scope and level. This also applies to the neighboring policy areas of economic and labor policy. However, due to the overlap of these two policy areas, the asymmetrical integration of economic policy vis-a-vis labor policy leads to shifts in the German collective bargaining system, thus circumscribing the scope of German trade unions' action. More specifically, sectoral asymmetry leads to asymmetric political localization of the policy areas: Regulations in the economy are mainly taken at the EU level, whereas labor and social affairs remain national competences. Furthermore, the insertion of a supra-national layer is accompanied by a policy-theoretical change of the highest governmental and judicial authority from a hitherto (social-democratic) market-correcting consensus to a now market-making approach. This shift causes respective shifts at the national level as well. Additionally, the European Court of Justice possesses ...

The United States in the Changing Global Economy: Policy Implications and Issues

Accelerating globalization of world markets and increasing interdependence of the economies of the world has made policy-making very complex, especially in the United States. One of the most debated subjects in recent years has been whether the U.S. is capable of simultaneously dealing with serious domestic challenges and economic challenges from the rest of the world. It is becoming more important for the generalist in economics, political science, business, and other areas to understand the issues confronting the American economy in relation to rapid global economic change.

Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject Economics - Case Scenarios, grade: 1.0, EBC University Düsseldorf, course: Economic Policy, language: English, abstract: In a globalizing world with increasing international trade and growing markets as well as crisis influencing countries worldwide, it becomes ever more important to evaluate and compare the economic performance of different nations as well as their impacts on each other.One method that allows assessing a country's macroeconomic performance is the "magic square" according to Kaldor (1971). This approach takes four variables into consideration, which should be pursued amongst an economy:1. Sustainable growth,2. Equilibrium of balance of payments,3. Price stability,4. High employment. In the following paper, the economic progress of the United Kingdom within the previous 10 years should be evaluated using the "magic square" as a framework. Therefore, there will be the main focus on the most relevant macroeconomic indicators, such as the growth of GDP, inflation rate, unemployment rate and current account balance, in order to provide a sound overview regarding UK's overall economic development.

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...

Ben Beiske, L. Cai, J. Murray A Consideration of the Validity of Cultural Protectionism with Reference to the Multifunctionality of European Farms and the Canadian Magazine Dispute

Seminar paper from the year 2002 in the subject Business economics - Economic Policy, grade: 1.3 (A), University of Manchester (Manchester School of Management), 37 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This paper adresses how the defence of local culture is becoming an increasing concern in the current era of globalisation, as diminishing transport costs and new forms of communication are enabling worldwide dissemination of products and ideas. The import of cultural goods from nations with disparate values and traditions is investigated, which could potentially cause the destabilisation of national or local communities. Indeed, these cultural goods may displace existing products and result in cultural homogenisation. Also, this paper looks at measures designed to protect culture which are exempt from WTO consideration and disputes between nations are negotiated bilaterally. As a result, fears that larger economies, such as the US, are able to dominate the cultural industries of smaller nations are investigated. Finally, this paper makes two main recommendations concerning domestic policy and concerning international trade policy. Through the development of a methodology which can develop agreements on more easily recognisable cultural interests - those less clouded by economic motivations - such a body would be able to tackle the more complex and problematic issues, with the aim of separating economic and political issues from genuine cultural concerns.

Sophia Kühnlenz Economic Bubbles. A Story of New Eras, Emotional Contagion and Structural Support

Economic bubbles go hand in hand with financial inventions, financial liberalization and excess leverage. Frequently these bubbles are fueled by the overoptimistic outlook not only of the so-called experts or gurus but also by the extremely positive perception of the general public. Great hikes in asset and commodity markets are believed to be a result of the new economy that has been created. Historical levels of markets and where the level of fundamentals should really be are either unknown or completely ignored. Partially one could account this to the short financial memory of market participants. Partially the abstract nature of the markets and the complexity of financial products themselves may be the reason. This paper tries to identify regularities defining economic bubbles concentrating on the most recent ones. Different approaches in explaining market movements will be discussed. Further, not only structural but especially psychological factors which may cause the emergence, the inflation and the implosion of economic bubbles are considered. Already existing agent based models, policy responses and possible future policy measures are analyzed and evaluated.

Teacher Certification and the Professional Status of Teaching in North America. The New Battleground for Public Education

This book locates recent developments in teacher certification in North America within a broader,international policy context characterized as hegemonic neo-liberalism wherein economic rationalismhas begun to trump professional judgment. We focus on teacher certification because itaddresses fundamental questions about who will teach, what are the required minimum levels ofcompetence, and who will make those decisions. Such questions are central to teaching, constitutinga new battleground for education in North America.Two ideas-economic rationalism and professionalization-have become pivotal to educationpolicy. Economic rationalism finds its expression in a free market ideology. Professionalization has two meanings: professionalizingthe practice of teaching (constructing a professional knowledge base); and professionalizing the status of teaching (through links withuniversities and self-regulation). These ideas' contestation varies by setting. In the USA, neo-liberalism has attacked professionalknowledge, questioning its scientific veracity. Professionalization advocates claim that the neo-liberalist aim is to undermine teachingas a profession. In Canada, neo-liberalist critics are heard but have limited impact on policy. Professionalization has emphasized teachers'pedagogical development and a valuing of the field's input into teacher preparation.Neo-liberalist economic rationalism plays itself out overtly in the USA as de-regulation; in Canada, it lies embedded ...

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.

Why the global recession is in danger of becoming another Great Depression, and how we can stop it When the United States stopped backing dollars with gold in 1968, the nature of money changed. All previous constraints on money and credit creation were removed and a new economic paradigm took shape. Economic growth ceased to be driven by capital accumulation and investment as it had been since before the Industrial Revolution. Instead, credit creation and consumption began to drive the economic dynamic. In The New Depression: The Breakdown of the Paper Money Economy, Richard Duncan introduces an analytical framework, The Quantity Theory of Credit, that explains all aspects of the calamity now unfolding: its causes, the rationale for the government's policy response to the crisis, what is likely to happen next, and how those developments will affect asset prices and investment portfolios. In his previous book, The Dollar Crisis (2003), Duncan explained why a severe global economic crisis was inevitable given the flaws in the post-Bretton Woods international monetary system, and now he's back to explain what's next. The economic system that emerged following the abandonment of sound money requires credit growth to survive. Yet the private sector can bear no additional debt and the government's creditworthiness is deteriorating rapidly. Should total credit begin to contract significantly, this New Depression will become a New Great Depression, with disastrous economic and geopolitical consequences. That outcome is not inevitable, and this book describes what must be done to prevent it. Presents a fascinating look inside the financial crisis and how the New Depression is poised to become a New Great Depression Introduces a new theoretical construct, The Quantity Theory of Credit, that is the key to understanding not only the developments that led to the crisis, but also to understanding how events will play out in the years ahead Offers unique insights from the man who predicted the global economic breakdown Alarming but essential reading, The New Depression explains why the global economy is teetering on the brink of falling into a deep and protracted depression, and how we can restore stability.

Seminar paper from the year 2002 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: USA, grade: 1,0 (A), Ripon College (Department of Politics and Government), course: Senior Seminar, language: English, abstract: Due to economic reforms that were started in the late 1970s, China has stepped into the center of international politics and economy during the past years. These reforms helped the country to achieve an immense economic upturn with annual growth rates of almost ten percent and thus made China an ever more important actor on the international stage of politics. The United States strongly support China's economic development by granting it permanent Normal Trade Relations, for example, and investing directly in China's manufacturing sector. But whereas China has been liberalizing its market, using American interests to gain profits, it largely maintains its defensive and rejecting attitude about changing its human rights situation. There are controversial opinions about how the United States should respond towards China human rights situation.In order to make aware of the stagnated situation of the human rights issue in U.S. China policy, this paper explores how the Clinton administration handled human rights in China policy and looks at the role of human rights in the Bush jr. administration's policy towards China.

William Davis The New German Foreign Policy-Opinion Nexus. Europe in the Balance.

After the end of the Cold War and unification with the former East German GDR, Germany maintained the policy alliance paradigm with the US. However, with the 2002 opposition to the US on UN Security Council resolution 1441 on Iraq, this relationship appeared to change. Does the German decision on Iraq indicate a new foreign policy direction and what accounts for this possible change in Germany? Exogenous and endogenous factors including US policy, EU integration, Unification/Growing German self-assurance, and the opinion-policy relationship typical for advanced democratic countries are examined. Scholars of democracy have suggested that policy outputs follow public opinion in advanced democratic countries. Using time-series statistical regression analyses, I test the opinion-policy nexus in Germany with regard to the US foreign policy relationship. I find that along with several contributing factors, post-unification changes in the German electorate allowed for a reassessment of the old foreign policy paradigm as a “normal” opinion-policy relationship developed in post-Cold War Germany. From a realist’s systemic perspective however, German behavior looks a lot like balancing.

Bolor Naranhuu Studies on Poverty in Mongolia

Various studies have been carried out on poverty in Mongolia, by assessing magnitude and determinants of poverty, the effects of the economic transition and natural shocks. However, there is still room to explore the poverty change and its components from static and dynamic perspectives, vulnerability to poverty and its determinants, and the impacts of the current economic policies. This monograph, therefore, considers various aspects of the poverty in Mongolia, including estimations of the actual as well as future-looking poverty, its distributional and growth components, and trade policy impacts on poverty in Mongolia. It provides more up-to-date review of the Mongolian economic growth, income inequality and poverty, using more recent and reliable household data, and should be useful to scholars, policy analysts, and professionals, who are particularly interested in the performances of the Mongolian economy and their latest reviews and analyses.

Next, its economic policy and the current macroeconomic situation are analysed followed by the economic structure and international economic relations. Last but not least, after arriving at the main hindrances and potentials of the economy, a recommendation is given on how to make things better.On a global scale, Bangladesh is rather insignificant in terms of economic or political power. Furthermore, it is a country that is seldom reported about by Western media. The news coverage I have seen in the last years mainly pertained to natural disasters (heavy flooding) or political tension. More recently, however, terrible accidents in the garments factory have made the international headlines. Considering the fact that many of the clothes I wear contain a tag reminding me regularly that they are produced in this country, I was anxious to find out more.

Minassian Garabed, Stoyancheva Dimitrina Parameters of Contemporary Financial and Economic Crisis in Bulgaria

Market economic reforms in Bulgaria began with a large-scale redistribution of capital in 1991, followed by a severe banking crisis in 1996. Within 15 months the national currency depreciated 30 times and prices rose 23 times. The situation was favorable for the introduction of a currency board and Bulgarian economy began a new life. However, the accelerated economic growth concealed the accumulation of excessive risks. The 2008 crisis revealed the full extent of cumulative effects. Looking for economic and banking stability the macroeconomic management implemented countercyclical policy measures, but the low demand, poor institutional reforms and uncertainty, both economic and political, was not resolved. Studying the parameters of contemporary economic crisis in Bulgaria the authors answer the following: What are the determinants of economic crisis in a financially stable banking system? How credit institutions transferred the exogenous financial shock to the local economy? What are and how to assess the regulatory measures effectiveness? And finally, is it permissible to speak about the financial and banking stability, provided that economic activity remained unstable?

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2012 in the subject Economics - Finance, , course: Policy Exchange, language: English, abstract: The challenge presented is to answer the following question: Ifmember states leave the Economic and Monetary Union, what is the best way for the economic process to be managed to provide the soundest foundation for the future growth and prosperity of the current membership?The world is suffering from an ailment known as fiat money, and the eurozone is experiencing the most debilitating symptoms. The ailment's cure may be the implementation of a full gold & silver standard along with revisions to the Maastricht Treaty and to the Stability and Growth Pact that would incentivize member states to adopt fiscal prudence and to nurture sound economies.In order to efficiently and effectively support such an argument, this paper must first discuss the problems inherent to fiat money. It will explain why money backed solely by a promise inevitably leads to economic hardship. The paper will then argue the case for money fully backed by gold & silver, providing evidence of its stability and conduciveness to economic prosperity. Furthermore, the paper will specify conditions that would be essential in fostering a full precious metals standard.Most importantly, the paper will argue that to provide the soundest foundation for the future growth and prosperity of the eurozone, member states must remain united. ...

Svetlana Inkina Fluid Structure of Agenda-Setting. Reflections on President Clinton.s Attempt to Introduce a Universal Healthcare System and the Subsequent Reform of Healthcare Industry under Obama Administration

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: USA, grade: A, , course: Public Policy, language: English, abstract: Based on the existing literature of policy continuity and change in American healthcare industry, my paper analyzes and compares the two reform efforts under the Obama and Clinton administrations. First, I discuss the scope of the national reform project offered by democrats during the early 1990s. Second, I question how and why similar ideas succeeded rather than failed fifteen years later. I conclude that policy proposals, which cut across the US value system, require policy entrepreneurs' combined efforts to use some of the available levers of change, based on accurate assessment of problems and target populations and the right choice of policy instruments. None of these factors, however, suffice to advance anything close to comprehensive policy change in a context of decentralized management, such as the US healthcare system.

Explore the inevitable collapse of the fiat monetary system Paper Money Collapse: The Folly of Elastic Money, Second Edition challenges the mainstream consensus on money and monetary policy. While it is today generally believed that the transition from 'hard' and inflexible commodity money (such as a gold standard) to entirely flexible and potentially unlimited fiat money under national central banks allows for superior economic stability, Paper Money Collapse shows that the opposite is true. Systems of highly elastic and constantly expanding money are not only unnecessary, even for growing economies, they are always extremely destabilizing. Over time, they must lead to substantial imbalances, including excessive levels of debt and distorted asset prices, that will require ever faster money production to sustain. Ultimately, however, there is no alternative to a complete liquidation of these distortions. Based on insights of many renowned economists and in particular of the Austrian School of Economics, the book explains through rigorous logic and in precise language why our system of flexible fiat money is incompatible with a market economy and therefore unsustainable. Paper money systems have always led to economic disintegration—without exception—throughout history. It will not be different for our system and we may be closer to the endgame than many think. The updated second edition incorporates: A new introduction and an extended outlook section that discusses various «endgames» Responses to criticisms, alternative views, and a critical assessment of 'solutions' Comments on recent policy trends, including attempts to exit the 'easy money' policy mode An evaluation of new crypto-currency Bitcoin Paper Money Collapse: The Folly of Elastic Money, Second Edition clarifies the problem of paper money clearly and eloquently, and proposes multiple routes to a solution.

Conversely, this paper shall describe, explain and evaluate the Alliance from the perspective of the political economy. Jaime Shea once posed the question: "Where is the debate about the future of NATO?" This paper could thus be conceived of as a contribution to this discussion. Since it originates from a thesis in economics, the analyses and examinations ought respectively apply and focus on a theoretical framework, which independently combines economic as well as methods from political science.In 1999, Todd Sandler and Keith Hartley published a book which drew significant attention throughout the scientific community in the areas of security and economic problems. Their work, 'The Political Economy of NATO', dealt with several issues concerning political and economic considerations of security in general and in particular the Alliance. This publication actually initiated the motivation for personal research in the field, which finally led to this paper. To establish a firm theoretical framework, the author does not hesitate to combine a set of equally important ideas and approaches from both political sc...

Seminar paper from the year 2015 in the subject Business economics - Economic Policy, grade: 2.1, , course: Public Administration, language: English, abstract: The establishment of public enterprises by governments of developing economies has been identified as a strategic approach to accelerated economic and national development. The main prop was the fostering and harnessing of economic potentials, balancing and control of strategic and social interest of the country, full employment as well as generation of revenue for the development of infrastructure.With the exception of some episodic successes recorded at inception, structural legacy of public enterprises and their corresponding impact on the Nigerian economy have been burdensome. This research was therefore inspired by the need to critically evaluate the factors leading to the dismal performance of public enterprises using the Cross River Newspaper Corporation as a case study. A sample of 360 persons was used for the study. The data for this study was generated from a well structured questionnaire which was administered on the sample. Research hypotheses were tested using Parsons Correlation Coefficient method. The result of the analyses revealed a positive correlation between the dependent and independent variables. Accordingly, the four Null Hypotheses were rejected. Recommendations were made in line with the findings.

Alexandra Steinberg More and more plugged Social Representations of the New Economy

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: This study set out to explore representations of the new economy amongst business professionals in Internet enabled business. 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...

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...

Why the global recession is in danger of becoming another Great Depression, and how we can stop it When the United States stopped backing dollars with gold in 1968, the nature of money changed. All previous constraints on money and credit creation were removed and a new economic paradigm took shape. Economic growth ceased to be driven by capital accumulation and investment as it had been since before the Industrial Revolution. Instead, credit creation and consumption began to drive the economic dynamic. In The New Depression: The Breakdown of the Paper Money Economy, Richard Duncan introduces an analytical framework, The Quantity Theory of Credit, that explains all aspects of the calamity now unfolding: its causes, the rationale for the government's policy response to the crisis, what is likely to happen next, and how those developments will affect asset prices and investment portfolios. In his previous book, The Dollar Crisis (2003), Duncan explained why a severe global economic crisis was inevitable given the flaws in the post-Bretton Woods international monetary system, and now he's back to explain what's next. The economic system that emerged following the abandonment of sound money requires credit growth to survive. Yet the private sector can bear no additional debt and the government's creditworthiness is deteriorating rapidly. Should total credit begin to contract significantly, this New Depression will become a New Great Depression, with disastrous economic and geopolitical consequences. That outcome is not inevitable, and this book describes what must be done to prevent it. Presents a fascinating look inside the financial crisis and how the New Depression is poised to become a New Great Depression Introduces a new theoretical construct, The Quantity Theory of Credit, that is the key to understanding not only the developments that led to the crisis, but also to understanding how events will play out in the years ahead Offers unique insights from the man who predicted the global economic breakdown Alarming but essential reading, The New Depression explains why the global economy is teetering on the brink of falling into a deep and protracted depression, and how we can restore stability.
