For the past three decades, we have been steadily creating an extreme 'time-crunch economy' that has affected jobs, portfolios, businesses and lives. But the 'time-crunch economy' is turning into 'the leisure economy' and it will mean wrenching adjustments for our lives and institutions. Everyone from consumers, investors, businesses, and policy-makers will need to understand the changes afoot. The Leisure Economy posits profound economic changes in North America due to both the retirement of the baby boomers and the attitudes of ascendant generations X and Y. Looking at trends in demographics, economics and generational change, this book looks at how to stay ahead of the leisure economy and predicts who will be the winners and losers in the seismic shift ahead.

Roald Neubert History and Perspective of Japanese Economy (1854-2000)

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...

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.

John F. Weeks Economics of the 1.. How Mainstream Economics Serves the Rich, Obscures Reality and Distorts Policy

How much do economists really know? In most cases, they claim to have profound knowledge but in fact understand little and obscure almost everything. Most people are convinced that economics should be left to the 'experts', when they themselves are perfectly capable of understanding it. This book explains that mainstream economics serves the interests of the rich through its logical inconsistency and unabashedly reactionary conclusions. John F. Weeks exposes the myths of mainstream economics and explains in straightforward language why current policies fail to serve the vast majority of people in the United States, Europe and elsewhere. Their failure to serve the interests of the many results from their devoted service to the few.

Madeleine Block Quantitative Analysis of Intra-organizational Knowledge Sharing

During the last decades the world economy has experienced significant transformations. The pace of change is still showing no sign of slowing down. Financial globalization and rapid merge of information and communication technologies have integrated the world economy. The world economy has been turned from an industrial into a "knowledge economy". Knowledge has become a strategic asset for firms and the ability to manage knowledge seems to be the crucial management skill now in the "knowledge age". It is assumed as basis of the knowledge economy in sense of sharing knowledge and creating new knowledge for commercial advantage. Findings of the research about the factors of knowledge sharing process indicate that the success of intra-organizational knowledge sharing in firms is determined to be an important extent of social relationships between the people and departments involved. This book provides interesting insights to the concepts of knowledge and social capital. It shows how they take effect in real life business: what role does trust and trustworthiness play? Do we need shared visions? Can the existence and the effect shared values be measured? - Interesting questions? Yes, indeed. And the answers given in this book are even based on statistical hard facts from empirical data. And this is not always the case in books that deal with issues on the borderline between economic and social science.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2004 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: 68 (1,7), Dublin Institute of Technology, 50 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This dissertation examines the critical importance of foreign direct investment in the growth of Ireland. It explains the reasons for Ireland's success and identifies the key steps in the history. The analysis is carried out in terms of the role of the Irish government policy in promoting foreign direct investment.

This paper will also show how important foreign direct investment is for the Irish economy in the future. The paper describes several theories about foreign direct investment. It addresses the advantages and disadvantages. More in depth this paper investigates the determinants of financial services sector investments abroad. It will also be shown how the Industrial Development Authority as an agency and the International Financial Services Centre contributed to Ireland's success. The example Hypo Real Estate Bank International illustrates how an investment in Ireland succeeded. This paper should attract readers with an interest in the Irish history and economy, in the role of foreign direct investment for a country's economy, or in financial services sector investments abroad.

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.

Vijay Mehta The Economics of Killing. How the West Fuels War and Poverty in the Developing World

Globalisation has created an interconnected world, but has not diminished violence, militarism and inequality. This book describes how the entrenched power of global elites has created a deadly cycle of violence, enacted through the Military Industrial Complex.Vijay Mehta shows how attempts at peaceful national development, environmental sustainability and human rights are routinely blocked by Western powers. He locates the 2008 financial crisis in US attempts to block China's model of development. He shows how Europe and the US conspire with regional dictators to prevent countries from developing advanced industries, and how this system has fed terrorism. The Economics of Killing argues that a different world is possible, based on policies of disarmament, demilitarisation and sustainable development.

Economics and Reality

There is an increasingly widespread belief, both within and outside the discipline, that modern economics is irrelevant to the understanding of the real world. Economics and Reality traces this irrelevance to the failure of economists to match their methods with their subject, showing that formal, mathematical models are unsuitable to the social realities economists purport to address. Tony Lawson examines the various ways in which mainstream economics is rooted in positivist philosophy and examines the problems this causes. It focuses on human agency, social structure and their interaction and explores how the understanding of this social phenomena can be used to transform the nature of economic practice. Economics and Reality concludes by showing how this newly transformed economics might set about shaping economic policy.

Andrea Sommariva The Political Economy of the Space Age. How Science and Technology Shape the Evolution of Human Society

This book provides answers to the questions of why human-kind should go into space, and on the relative roles of governments and markets in the evolution of the space economy. It adopts an interdisciplinary approach to answer those questions. Science and technology define the boundaries of what is possible. The realization of the possible depends on economic, institutional, and political factors. The book thus draws from many different academic areas such as physical science, astronomy, astronautics, political science, economics, sociology, cultural studies, and history. In the literature, the space economy has been analyzed using different approaches from science and technology to the effects of public expenditures on economic growth and to medium term effects on productivity and growth. This book brings all these aspects together following the evolutionary theory of economic change. It studies processes that transform the economy through the interactions among diverse economic agents, governments, and the extra-systemic environment in which governments operate. Its historical part helps to better understand motivations and constraints - technical, political, and economical - that shaped the growth of the space economy. In the medium term, global issues - such as population changes, critical or limited natural resources, and environmental damages – and technological innovations are the main drivers for the evolution of the space economy beyond Earth orbit.In universities, th...

Gustavo Marqués A Philosophical Framework for Rethinking Theoretical Economics and Philosophy of Economics

This book sets out to encourage a debate about the role that economic theory and philosophy of economics can play. A good part of economics consists of theoretical developments which describe completely imaginary worlds and have no connections to actual market economies. If the purpose of theoretical and philosophical analysis in economics is to make a contribution to find out how modern market economies work and which kind of theoretical practice will be useful for the implementation of successful economic policies, a shift both in philosophy of economics and economics itself is needed. Exposing the ungrounded pretensions of the mainstream philosophy of economics, Marqués’ carefully argued book is a major contribution to the ongoing debate on contemporary mainstream economics and its methodological and philosophical underpinnings. Even those who disagree with his conclusions will benefit from his thorough and deep critique of the modeling strategies used in modern economics. Lars Pålsson Syll, Malmö University, Sweden Is ‘mainstream philosophy of economics’ only about models and imaginary worlds created to represent economic theories? Marqués questions this epistemic focus and calls for the ontological examination of real world economic processes. This book is a serious challenge to standard thinking and an alternative program for a pluralist philosophy of economics.John Davis, Marquette University, USA and University of Amsterdam In recent decades economists have focused he...

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: 1,3, Berlin School of Economics (Hochschule für Wirtschaft und Recht (HWR) Berlin), course: International Corporate Finance, language: English, abstract: Foreign direct investment (FDI) is found almost everywhere in the world today and closely connected to worldwide globalization. Why do enterprises which are suc-cessfully operating in their home market decide on making investments in unknown and more insecure markets? Why do investment destinations have an interest in admitting foreign investors into the economy? Considering that FDI has grown in importance in the global economy in the last decades, obviously there has to be significant advantages for both sides. The World Investment Report (WIR) of UNCTAD reports in their recent publication (2008) high records in FDI flows in the world (UNCTAD 2008a). While developed countries still attract the largest volume of FDI inflows, developing countries possess the highest growth rate in drawing a significant volume of investment into their economy. Transforming and emerging markets in South, East and Southeast Asia particularly showed rapid development of generated inflows and their economies are prospering. China is a famous exam-ple. In our paper, we would like to introduce a not so well-known little tiger - Vietnam - and South Korea, which is after impressive growth in the last decades due to FDI now on its way to becoming an ind...

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?

An in-depth look at the Chinese car industry that sheds new light on the delicate nature of China's planned economy China's unprecedented growth over the last three decades, along with the recent financial crisis in the West, has raised questions about the superiority of state-led capitalism. In Designated Drivers: How China Plans to Dominate the Global Auto Industry, G.E. Anderson, a specialist in finance and Chinese political economics, uses the auto industry to examine how China's industrial planning works, and explores whether state involvement in the economy really is a winning formula for sustainable growth. Bringing to light the strengths and weaknesses that define the Chinese economy, Anderson finds that in some ways the government has become its own worst enemy, unable to choose between industrial competitiveness and social stability. While the economy is booming now, evidence suggests that long-term success is far from assured. Tracing the evolution of the post-Mao auto industry through thirteen case studies, Designated Drivers raises the difficult questions about the future of China that few people have dared to ask. Offers a unique insight into the Chinese economy through the lens of the auto industry Explores how successful the central government has been in spurring economic growth and the long-terms costs of intervention Uses case studies to illustrate China's explosive growth over the last three decades A painstakingly researched analysis of the Chinese automobile industry, Designated Drivers explains the risks and rewards inherent in doing business in China that anyone interested in, or already working there need to understand.

One of the foremost financial writers of his generation, Peter Bernstein has the unique ability to synthesize intellectual history and economics with the theory and practice of investment management. Now, with classic titles such as Economist on Wall Street, A Primer on Money, Banking, and Gold, and The Price of Prosperity?which have forewords by financial luminaries and new introductions by the author?you can enjoy some of the best of Bernstein in his earlier Wall Street days. First published in 1962, The Price of Prosperity speaks to today's uncertainties as clearly as to those of the past. With chapters like «The Burden of Government» and «The Economics of Democracy,» Bernstein probes the future of an economy during rapidly changing times and the appropriate role of government in determining the ultimate outcome. The questions have not changed over time, but Bernstein's answers help us understand these issues from today's perspective. How much government control is too much control? How much can government spend? How can government influence the level of unemployment? As Bernstein shows how to navigate an ever-changing economic landscape, his timeless insights throughout these pages make The Price of Prosperity as vital and important today as when it appeared in an environment fundamentally different from our own.
