The Age of Access: The New Culture of Hypercapitalism

Jeremy Rifkin

The Age of Access: The New Culture of Hypercapitalism by Jeremy RifkinVisionary activist and author Jeremy Rifkin exposes the real stakes of the new economy, delivering "the clearest summation yet of how the Internet is really changing our lives" (The Seattle Times).

Imagine waking up one day to find that virtually every activity you engage in outside your immediate family has become a "paid-for" experience. It's all part of a fundamental change taking place in the nature of business, contends Jeremy Rifkin. After several hundred years as the dominant organizing paradigm of civilization, the traditional market system is beginning to deconstruct. On the horizon...

Trade Policy and Food Security: Improving Access to Food in Developing Countries in the Wake of High World Prices

Ian Gillson

Trade Policy and Food Security: Improving Access to Food in Developing Countries in the Wake of High World Prices by Ian GillsonBased on forecasts of global population growth, food security will remain an important economic development issue over the next several decades. In addition, real food prices have risen in recent years after decades of decline, bringing the issue of food security even further into the public spotlight. However, there is no global food shortage: the problem is one of moving food, often across borders, from surplus production areas to deficit ones at prices that low-income consumers in developing countries can afford. Trade can be an excellent buffer for domestic fluctuations in food supply. World...

The EU Services Directive: Gains from Further Liberalization

Emilio Fernández Corugedo & Esther Pérez Ruiz

The EU Services Directive: Gains from Further Liberalization by Emilio Fernández Corugedo & Esther Pérez RuizThe EU Services Directive was adopted in 2006 to foster competition in services across Europe. However, progress in liberalizing services has fallen short of expectations due to the article 15 of the Directive, which allows countries to maintain pre-existing restrictions if judged necessary to protect the public interest. Through input output analysis, this paper finds important multiplier effects of greater efficiency services to the rest of the economy. A renewed impulse to the liberalization process could be given by enhancing the advocacy role of national competition authorities in interpreting...

The A-Z Guide to Federal Employment Laws For the Small Business Owner

Shannon Johnson

The A-Z Guide to Federal Employment Laws For the Small Business Owner by Shannon JohnsonThe recent spike in the number of violations of the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act has resulted in dozens of multimillion- dollar lawsuits from both large and small businesses. Federal employment laws were not written to assist small business owners in running their businesses, making it difficult to understand the somewhat complex legalese. Luckily, there is an easy way to avoid being one of the numerous companies involved in class-action labor lawsuits. The A-Z Guide to Federal Employment Laws for the Small Business Owner details the labor laws you must follow as a small business owner to...

Paradigm Theory & Policy Making: Reconfiguring the Future

Akira Iida

Paradigm Theory & Policy Making: Reconfiguring the Future by Akira IidaThis book tracks the development of the dominant capitalist economic paradigm of the United States and examines the decisions and implications faced by many countries which have yet to espouse the values on which the current internationally dominant paradigm is built. The existence of this "paradigm gap" poses problems for all and gives rise to such thorny issues as development and aid. A compelling case is made for the view that, just as drawing an additional line can help solve problems in geometry, adding the paradigm perspective into economic policy making will enable nation-states and international...

Domestic Regulation and Service Trade Liberalization

Policy World Bank

Domestic Regulation and Service Trade Liberalization by Policy World BankTrade in services, far more than trade in goods, is affected by a variety of domestic regulations, ranging from qualification and licensing requirements in professional services to pro-competitive regulation in telecommunications services. Experience shows that the quality of regulation strongly influences the consequences of trade liberalization. WTO members have agreed that a central task in the ongoing services negotiations will be to develop a set of rules to ensure that domestic regulations support rather than impede trade liberalization. Since these rules are bound to have a profound impact...

Sustaining Trade Reform: Institutional Lessons from Argentina and Peru

Elías A. Baracat & J. Michael Finger

Sustaining Trade Reform: Institutional Lessons from Argentina and Peru by Elías A. Baracat & J. Michael FingerFactually, the principal finding of this book is that the trade policy reforms introduced by Peru in the 1990s have continued over several changes of president, whereas similar reforms in Argentina have been reversed. In both countries, the reforms included the introduction of new mechanisms for managing trade policy as well as the reduction of restrictions. Throughout the decade beginning in 2000, Peru's liberalization expanded. The new institutions became more robust, and through them pressures for protection were effectively contained. At the same time, Argentine trade policy returned to...

The Dynamic Internet: How Technology, Users, and Businesses are Transforming the Network

Christopher Yoo

The Dynamic Internet: How Technology, Users, and Businesses are Transforming the Network by Christopher YooThe Dynamic Internet: How Technology, Users, and Businesses are Changing the Network offers a comprehensive history of the Internet and efforts to regulate its use. University of Pennsylvania law professor Christopher S. Yoo contends that rather than engaging in prescriptive regulatory oversight, the government should promote competition in other ways, such as reducing costs for consumers, lowering entry barriers for new producers, and increasing transparency. These reforms would benefit consumers while permitting the industry to develop new solutions for emerging problems. It is fruitless for...

The End of Food

Paul Roberts

The End of Food by Paul RobertsSalmonella-tainted tomatoes, riots, and skyrocketing prices are only the latest in a series of food-related crises that have illuminated the failures of the modern food system. In The End of Food, Paul Roberts investigates this system and presents a startling truth—how we make, market, and transport our food is no longer compatible with the billions of consumers the system was built to serve.

The emergence of large-scale and efficient food production forever changed our relationship with food and ultimately left a vulnerable and paradoxical system in place. High-volume factory systems create...

The quality of the services relies greatly on the coordination and collaboration of these specialized organizations. How can cooperative relationships be built that guarantee trustful communication, binding decisions, and productive team-work? How can collaboration and competition be balanced? What are the differences between loose-coupled networks and tightly built collaborations and which type...

Pathways to African Export Sustainability

Paul Brenton & Olivier Cadot

Pathways to African Export Sustainability by Paul Brenton & Olivier CadotAfrican exporters suffer from low survival rates on international markets. They fail more often than others, incurring time and again the setup costs involved in starting new relationships. This high churning is a source of waste, uncertainty, and discouragement. However, this trend is not inevitable. The high "infant mortality" of African exports is largely explained by Africa's low-income business environment and, once properly benchmarked, Africa's performance in terms of exporter failure is no outlier. Moreover, African exporters show vigorous entrepreneurship, with high entry rates into...

Streamlining Non-Tariff Measures

Streamlining Non-Tariff Measures by Olivier Cadot & Mariem MaloucheThis toolkit provides a novel approach and a set of tools that allow policymakers and analysts to identify non-tariff measures (NTMs), assess their trade restrictiveness and impact on prices and welfare, and to strengthen the institutional coordination mechanism, transparency, and regulatory governance on NTMs. It also aims at encouraging economies to increasingly address the NTM agenda from a domestic competitiveness and/or poverty perspective rather than from a mercantilist standpoint of concessions to trading partners. NTMs are policy measures, other than ordinary customs tariffs, that can...
