  3. China and the Global Economy

    China and the Global Economy

    Edited by Shahid Yusuf
    China’s Global Economic Footprint is large and growing. In recent years, China has contributed a third or more to the growth of the global economy following it’s meteoric rise starting in the 1980s and gathering momentum in the 1990s. China has convincingly demonstrated the efficacy of investment and export-led growth as a model of development and has achieved economic stardom using a mix of industrial, trade and exchange rate policies within the framework of a gradually reforming socialist market economy. The chapters in this volume written by prominent China scholars and economists as well as an original introduction by a world-leading expert, explore China’s economy. This collection will be an invaluable resource for China watchers and to researchers, students and policymakers interested in learning from East Asia’s development, understanding how China transformed its economy and wondering as to how China might come to grips with the challenges ahead.

  10. The Disappearing Product

    The Disappearing Product

    Chris Bilton
    Technological and social change has transfigured the market for creative industries. A new generation of intermediaries including Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google deal in context (how we consume) more than content (what we consume), displacing cultural producers, devaluing culturing products and monopolising consumer attention. Drawing on theoretical models across disciplines and rich in practical examples, this book charts an approach to marketing which challenges cultural producers to reclaim their place in the creative economy.

  11. The Development of International Business

    The Development of International Business

    Robert Pearce
    In this wide-ranging and groundbreaking new book, Robert Pearce provides an analytically-informed basis for understanding the modern multinational enterprise. It does this by tracing the development over the past half-century of two parallel strands of analysis in International Business; designated as the ‘theoretical’ and the ‘practical’. The book shows how the practical restructuring of the MNE as an organisational form has responded to changes in the wider global economy and how this evolution has interfaced with the enriching of the relevant theorising. By tracing the persisting dynamics of the MNEs’ structure and strategic positioning it demonstrates how what it is now can be used as a template for understanding and organising its further evolution as additional changes condition its environment.

    Innovating for Trust

    Edited by Marika Lüders, Tor W. Andreassen, Simon Clatworthy, Tore Hillestad
