Forming Economic Policy: The Case of Energy in Canada and Mexico

Fen Osler Hampson

Forming Economic Policy: The Case of Energy in Canada and Mexico by Fen Osler HampsonHow do governments make key decisions on vital economic questions of national
importance? Can they advance the national interest on issues that are highly
politicized? How do they respond to competing pressures from the international and
domestic environments?

Forming Economic Policy explores these and other questions in Canada and Mexico, two very different countries which share a common vulnerability to the world economy. Using the case of energy, the book argues that policymakers will address the national interest, but only episodically with the onset of major national crises that invoke a higher...

Urban Political Economy

Kenneth Newton

Urban Political Economy by Kenneth NewtonThe study of urban political economy needs no justification, for cities are the heart (and arguably the soul) of our civilization, and their political and economic conditions are the linchpins of its existence. But how should we study urban political economy?

Urban Political Economy deals with different nations - Belgium, Denmark, France, Norway, the UK. and the USA - and with different problems - expenditure patterns, service provision, economic development, fiscal strain, budgetary cuts, and borrowing systems - but they all agree on two fundamental points about the study of their subject matter:...

Globalisation and Interdependence in the International Political Economy: Rhetoric and Reality

R. J. Barry Jones

Globalisation and Interdependence in the International Political Economy: Rhetoric and Reality by R. J. Barry JonesGlobalisation and Interdependence in the International Political Economy addresses central developments within the contemporary international system.

The notions of interdependence and globalisation that have accompanied the political discourse of 'a new world disorder' are replete with definitional ambiguities, theoretical difficulties and empirical complexities. Barry Jones offers a critical review and analysis of these concepts, their significance and place within the wider debates of international political economy. He argues that contemporary conditions are complex, with regionalising tendencies...

The Developing Countries and the World Economic Order

Lars Anell & Birgitta Nygren

The Developing Countries and the World Economic Order by Lars Anell & Birgitta NygrenThe Developing Countries and the World Economic Order provides a lucid introduction to the debate about the developing countries and the quest for a New International Economic Order. The primary objective is to indicate some of the fundamental requirements that must be satisfied by an equitable world order.

Since the present economic situation and demands of developing countries cannot be understood thoroughly without prior knowledge of how the present world order has evolved, Part I begins with a detailed historical survey. An account of economic development up to the Second World War and of...

Fiscal Harmonization in the European Communities: National Politics and International Cooperation

Donald J. Puchala

Fiscal Harmonization in the European Communities: National Politics and International Cooperation by Donald J. PuchalaThe specific concern of this study is 'politicization' or the relationships between contests in national politics and the capacity for international cooperation.

Progress towards fiscal harmonization in the European Community is selected as the substantive focus for the study, although the object is to learn from the EC rather than about it.

The author argues that common EC policies usually reach fruition as complex compromises, derived from decisions based on the perceived effect on domestic politics and rivalries, rather than transnational neatness. Lack of political will is frequently blamed...

Time and the Macroeconomic Analysis of Income

Alvaro Cencini

Time and the Macroeconomic Analysis of Income by Alvaro CenciniTime and the Macroeconomic Analysis of Income will undoubtedly puzzle, stimulate, infuriate, or annoy many readers. Alvaro Cencini challenges so many of the commonly held notions which are perpetuated in elementary textbooks and taken for granted in learned journals that a first reaction is bound to be that the author must be naive or ignorant - this is far from the case; the questions that Cencini raises are original and searching. His answers are even more intriguing for economists and interested readers.

Money, Income and Time: A Quantum-Theoretical Approach

Alvaro Cencini

Money, Income and Time: A Quantum-Theoretical Approach by Alvaro CenciniIn Money, Income and Time, Alvaro Cencini examines how money has been alternatively defined as a commodity and as the general equivalent of all commodities to be, subsequently, identified with the concept of numéraire, and, finally, reduced to the actual notion of credit. To better clarify the terms of the problem, the writer analyses it through the main theories of money which have been developed since the works of the classical economist. The book does not take the form of a history of economic doctrines, however, since its aim is at the same time less ambitious and more precise, that is...

Classical Political Economy: Primitive Accumulation and the Social Division of Labor

Michael Perelman

Classical Political Economy: Primitive Accumulation and the Social Division of Labor by Michael PerelmanClassical Political Economy addresses the question of what determines the social division of labour, the division of society into independent firms and industries and develops the theoretical implications of primitive accumulation. It also offers a significantly different interpretation of classical political economy, demonstrating that this school of thought supported the process of primitive accumulation.

Classical political economy presents an imposing facade. For more than two centuries, the accepted doctrine dictates that a market generates forces that provide the most efficient method for...

Economics of Fisheries Development

Rowena M. Lawson

Economics of Fisheries Development by Rowena M. LawsonFollowing the introduction of the 200-mile extended economic zone (EEZ), many developing countries suddenly found they had large fish resources, which - wisely managed and exploited - could generate wealth and income of immense benefit. However, one constraint to this was that many countries, for historic reasons, lacked the expertise to manage fisheries on this scale. Despite the need for information, few economists and especially development economists teaching in universities and colleges were able to incorporate fisheries economics into their courses owing to the lack of readily accessible...

Colonial Trade and International Exchange: The Transition from Autarky to International Trade

Richard Anthony Johns

Colonial Trade and International Exchange: The Transition from Autarky to International Trade by Richard Anthony JohnsInternational trade theory implicitly assumes that countries participating in external trade each have sovereign status. Its failure to recognise the pervasive importance of colonial trade as an intermediate stage of external trade development, interposed between autarky and 'international trade' narrowly defined creates a serious gap In its explanatory structure and direct applicability.

Anthony John's book is an attempt to examine the properties of colonial resource management on the process of territorial specialisation. He considers the implications of such foreign involvement for the trade...

Robert K. Olson

U.S. Foreign Policy and the New International Economic Order: Negotiating Global Problems, 1974-1981 by Robert K. OlsonU.S. Foreign Policy and the New International Economic Order is an authoritative account of the development of U.S. policy toward the New International Economic Order (NIEO) from its inception in 1974 through the Eleventh Special Session of the General Assembly in August-September 1980.

Long-run Economics: An Evolutionary Approach to Economic Growth

Norman Clark & Calestous Juma

Long-run Economics: An Evolutionary Approach to Economic Growth by Norman Clark & Calestous JumaA major problem of conventional economic theory as applied to long-run economic change is its unduly narrow and static character, which compromises its capacity to handle conceptually a social process inherently systemic, complex and dynamic. At the same time there is a growing realization in relevant government and industrial circles (reinforced by the example of Japan) that effective economic policy-making needs a strategic, and therefore a technological, content.

Long-Run Economics suggests a more realistic conceptual framework for the analysis of economic and technological change. Borrowing...

The Political Economy of Development

Just Faaland & Jack R. Parkinson

The Political Economy of Development by Just Faaland & Jack R. ParkinsonEconomic development may be seen from many different points of view: in terms of history, theory or empirical generalization. The Political Economy of Development draws these points of view together as it explores the practice of economic development itself and considers the issues that arise in attempting to devise development strategies for developing countries and to implement them.

The term 'political economy' highlights the fact that economics cannot be conducted in isolation, and always has to be related to the political and social setting of the countries with which it is concerned. The...

Moved by the conviction that these proposals aimed at restructuring international economic relations and effective a global redistribution of wealth and power, presented...

The Financing of Foreign Direct Investment: A Study of the Determinants of Capital Flows in Multinational Enterprises

Martin G. Gilman

The Financing of Foreign Direct Investment: A Study of the Determinants of Capital Flows in Multinational Enterprises by Martin G. GilmanThe Financing of Foreign Direct Investment examines the communication gap between business leaders and international economists when it comes to financing the overseas operations of domestic firms. Gilman argues that economists and business people have been speaking 'two different languages' when it comes to these issues, and he explores the different positions adopted by economists and business people to provide a plausible explanation of the determinants of capital flows financing foreign direct investment that incorporates the main elements of both approaches.
