Understanding the Global TV Format

J. Malbon & A. Moran

Understanding the Global TV Format by J. Malbon & A. MoranRecent years have seen an astonishing growth in the adaptation of program formats in television systems across the world. Under the new market conditions of the multi-channel cluster brought about by new technologies and increased privatisation of service, the adaptation of successful and popular TV formats from one place to another is occurring on an increasingly regular basis. Hence, the remaking of different national versions of Big Brother and Pop Idol are only part of what is going on. In fact, from Chinese versions of Coronation Street and Sex and the City, Indian and Indonesian remakes...

China's and India's Challenge to Latin America: Opportunity or Threat?

Marcelo Olarreaga

China's and India's Challenge to Latin America: Opportunity or Threat? by Marcelo OlarreagaThe economic successes of China and India are viewed with admiration but also with concern because of the effects that the growth of these Asian economies may have on the Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) region. The evidence in China's and India's Challenge to Latin America indicates that certain manufacturing and service industries in some countries have been negatively affected by Chinese and Indian competition in third markets and that LAC imports from China and India have been associated with modest unemployment and adjustment costs in manufacturing industries.

Itzhak Goldberg & Lee Branstetter & John Gabriel Goddard

Globalization and Technology Absorption in Europe and Central Asia: The Role of Trade, FDI and Cross-Border Knowledge Flows by Itzhak Goldberg & Lee Branstetter & John Gabriel GoddardInnovation and cross-border absorption of knowledge are central forces behind economic convergence and sustained growth. Absorption of technology is a necessary step to promote the development of human capital and the productive base, paving the way for innovations at the global knowledge frontier. Research and development, patents, trade, and foreign direct investment are major channels of technological absorption, allowing diffusion of new ideas and manufacturing best practices among countries and firms. These channels constitute the central focus of this study.

This study uses patent databases,...

After America: Narratives for the Next Global Age

Paul Starobin

After America: Narratives for the Next Global Age by Paul StarobinFarsighted and fascinating predictions for a new world order in which America is no longer number one

Moving beyond Fareed Zakaria's bestselling The Post-American World, veteran international correspondent Paul Starobin masterfully mixes fresh reportage with rigorous historical analysis to envision a world in which the United States is no longer the dominant superpower. The American Century has passed, argues Starobin, due in large part to America's military overreach in the Middle East; resurgent nationalism and economic expansion in Russia, China, and India; the tarnished American model of...

Development in Asia: Interdisciplinary, Post-Neoliberal, and Transnational Perspectives

Derrick M. Nault

Development in Asia: Interdisciplinary, Post-Neoliberal, and Transnational Perspectives by Derrick M. Nault"Development" is one of the most ubiquitous yet least understood concepts of our age. It is something all governments claim to be engaged in and is considered desirable by scholars, activists, policymakers, and laypeople alike. Yet it is also a highly contested term. For some, development is simply a matter of economic growth. Others maintain that it must entail improving life expectancy, literacy, education levels, and access to resources. Others yet, disillusioned by the results of development initiatives, have rejected development altogether, equating it with a self-serving aid industry that...

Globalization, Wages, and the Quality of Jobs: Five Country Studies

Raymond Robertson

Globalization, Wages, and the Quality of Jobs: Five Country Studies by Raymond RobertsonSince the early 1990s, most developing economies have become more integrated with the world's economy. Trade and foreign investment barriers have been progressively lifted and international trade agreements signed. These reforms have led to important changes in the structures of these economies. The labor markets have adjusted to these major changes, and workers were required to adapt to them in one way or another. In 2006, the Social Protection Unit of the World Bank launched an important research program to understand the impact that these profound structural changes have had on workers in...

Jideofor Patrick Adibe

Africa and Arabia: Collaboration or Conflict? (African Renaissance vol 1 nol 1 2004) by Jideofor Patrick AdibeFor our maiden edition, we have chosen to examine the relations between Africa and Arabia.

We have also published comments on some of the contributions. Besides the lead theme, there are also many other stimulating analyses, from the recent elections in South Africa to the AIDS epidemic....

Cornered: The New Monopoly Capitalism and the Economics of Destruction

Barry Lynn

Cornered: The New Monopoly Capitalism and the Economics of Destruction by Barry LynnRegular Harper?s and Financial Times contributor Barry C. Lynn paints a genuinely alarming picture: most of our public debates about globalization, competitiveness, creative destruction, and risky finance are nothing more than a cover for the widespread consolidation of power in nearly every imaginable sector of the American economy.

Cornered strips the camouflage from the secret world of twenty-first-century monopolies—neofeudalist empires whose sheer size, vast resources, and immense political power enable them to control virtually every major industry in America in an increasingly authoritarian...
