    Research Handbook on Behavioral Law and Economics

    Edited by Kathryn Zeiler, Joshua Teitelbaum

The field’s insights have important implications for law. This Research Handbook offers a variety of perspectives from renowned experts on a wide-ranging set of topics including punishment, finance, tort law, happiness, and the application of experimental literatures to law. It also includes analyses of conceptual foundations, cautions, limitations and proposals for ways forward. Learn More

  3. Handbook of Research on Economic and Social Well-being

    Handbook of Research on Economic and Social Well-being

    Edited by Conchita D’Ambrosio
    The past decade has been characterized by a burgeoning interest in new concepts of individual and social well-being. The impetus for this new research has stemmed from increased demand from policy makers and civil society for measures of progress that go beyond the traditional measures of GDP, as well as improved datasets allowing individuals and households to be tracked over their life course. The aim of this Handbook is to chart these developments and provide extensive surveys of many of the recent themes that have emerged in the research literature. Some of the topics addressed include poverty. relative deprivation and satisfaction, economic insecurity, social exclusion and inequality, income and social polarization, and social fractionalization and diversity. Each topic is first analyzed from a theoretical perspective, followed by detailed empirical discussion. Learn More

  4. Monopolies, Mergers and Competition Policy

    Monopolies, Mergers and Competition Policy

    F. M. Scherer
    This book collects some of the author's most illuminating recent papers on competition policy published since the turn of the millennium. They focus on three main themes: how technological innovation leads to monopolistic market structures and is reciprocally influenced by them; how competition agencies deal with the links from merger to economic efficiency, static and dynamic; and the behavioral problems posed by ‘tacit’ collusion and monopoly power in vertical market chains. Taken together they provide unique insight into competition, mergers and monopolies from one of the leading pioneers in the field. Learn More

  6. Globalization, International Spillovers and Sectoral Changes

    Globalization, International Spillovers and Sectoral Changes

    Edited by Charlie Karlsson, Andreas P. Cornett, Tina Wallin

Assessing the implications of globalization for businesses and sectors, chapters focus on the interdependencies between different economic and political layers, and explore topics such as human capital, creativity, innovation, networks and collaboration.

  7. The Global Factory

    The Global Factory

    Peter J. Buckley
    This key new book synthesises Peter Buckley's work on ‘the global factory’ – the modern networked multinational enterprise. The role of interfirm networks, entrepreneurship and cooperation in the creation and management of global factories leads to a discussion of their governance, internal knowledge transfer strategies and performance, including their role in potentially combating societal failures. Emerging country multinationals are examined as a special case of global factories with a focus on Indian and Chinese multinationals, their involvement in tax havens and offshore financial centres, the performance and processes of their acquisition strategies – all seen as key aspects of globalisation.

  11. Financial Models and Society

    Financial Models and Society

    Ekaterina Svetlova
    This innovative book employs the social studies of finance approach which aims to enhance the dialogue between finance and sociology by addressing the blind spots of economic and financial theories. In so doing, it challenges the accusations made towards financial models in the aftermath of the last economic crisis and argues that they cannot be condemned indiscriminately. Their influence on markets and society is not straightforward, but determined by the many ways in which models are created and then used. The book analyses the various patterns of the application of models in asset management, risk management and financial engineering to demonstrate that their power is far more fragile than widespread criticism would indicate.

  13. Handbook of International Trade and Transportation

    Handbook of International Trade and Transportation

    Edited by Bruce A. Blonigen, Wesley W. Wilson
    International trade has grown rapidly over the past half century, accommodated by the transportation industry through concomitant growth and technological change. But while the connection between transport and trade flows is clear, the academic literature often looks at these two issues separately. This Handbook is unique in pulling together the key insights of each field while highlighting what we know about their intersection and ideas for future research in this relatively unexamined but growing area of study.

  15. Law and Development

    Law and Development

    Frank H. Stephen
    This book draws on the analytical framework of New Institutional Economics (NIE) to critically examine the role which law and the legal system play in economic development. Analytical concepts from NIE are used to assess policies which have been supported by multilateral development organisations including securing private property rights, reform of the legal system and financial development. The importance of culture in shaping the legal environment, which in turn influences financial sector development, is also assessed using Oliver Williamson’s ‘levels of social analysis’ framework.

  16. How Economics Should be Done

    How Economics Should be Done

    David C. Colander, Huei-Chun Su
    David Colander has been writing about economic methodology for over 30 years, but he goes out of his way to emphasize that he does not see himself as a methodologist. His pragmatic methodology is applicable to what economists are doing and attempts to answer questions that all economists face as they go about their work. The articles collected in this volume are divided, with the first part providing a framework underlying Colander’s methodology and introducing Colander’s methodology for economic policy within that framework. Part two presents Colander’s view on the methodology for microeconomics, while part three looks at Colander’s methodology for macroeconomics. The book closes with discussions of broader issues.

  20. Islamic Wealth Management

    Islamic Wealth Management

    Edited by Mohamed Ariff, Shamsher Mohamad
    From an Islamic perspective, although the ownership of wealth is with God, humans are gifted with wealth to manage it with the objective of benefiting the human society. Such guidance means that wealth management is a process involving the accumulation, generation, purification, preservation and distribution of wealth, all to be conducted carefully in permissible ways. This book is the first to lay out a coherent framework on how wealth management should be conducted in compliance with guiding principles from edicts of a major world religion. Learn More
