  1. Handbook of Research Methodologies and Design in Neuro-entrepreneurship

    Handbook of Research Methodologies and Design in Neuro-entrepreneurship

    Edited by Mellani Day, Mary C. Boardman, Norris F. Krueger
    This Handbook provides an overview of neuroscience-driven research methodologies and how those methodologies might be applied to theory-based research in the nascent field of neuro-entrepreneurship. It presents the current thinking and examples of pioneering work, serves as a reference for those wishing to incorporate these methods into their own research, and provides several helpful discussions on the nature of an answerable question using neuroscience techniques. It includes concrete examples of new ways to conduct research that can shed light onto such areas as decision-making and opportunity recognition, allowing us to ask different, perhaps better, questions than ever before.

    Handbook of Competition in Banking and Finance

    Edited by Jacob A. Bikker, Laura Spierdijk

The goal of this Handbook is to provide a collection of state-of-the-art chapters to address this issue The book consists of four parts, the first of which discusses the characteristics of various measures of financial-sector competition. The second part includes several empirical studies on the level of, and trends in, financial-sector competition across countries. The third part deals with the spillovers of market power to other sectors and the economy as a whole. Finally, the fourth part considers competition in banking submarkets and subsectors. Learn More

  3. Endogenous Innovation

    Endogenous Innovation

    Cristiano Antonelli
    This ground-breaking new book builds upon the Schumpeterian creative response. The author shows that firms, in out-of-equilibrium conditions, try and react by means of introducing innovations. The success of their reaction is contingent upon their access conditions to knowledge, which are shaped by the system in which they operate. The emergence of new innovations can, in turn, knock firms further out-of-equilibrium and cause changes in the system properties that govern their access to external knowledge. This path dependent loop of interactions between the system properties and the individual actions of firms, accounts for endogenous innovation and the dynamics of the system. Learn More

  4. Central and Local Government Relations in Asia

    Central and Local Government Relations in Asia

    Edited by Naoyuki Yoshino, Peter J. Morgan
    Sustainable and inclusive growth in emerging Asian economies requires high levels of public investment in areas such as infrastructure, education, health and social services. The increasing complexity and regional diversity of these investment needs, together with the trend of democratization, has led to fiscal decentralization being implemented in many Asian economies. This book takes stock of some major issues regarding fiscal decentralization, including expenditure and revenue assignments, transfer programs and sustainability of local government finances, and develops important findings and policy recommendations.

  8. Capital Gains Taxation

    Capital Gains Taxation

    Edited by Michael Littlewood, Craig Elliffe
    Capital gains taxes pose a host of design problems, both technical and political. The literature on the theory of capital gains taxation is substantial. However, curiously, little has been published on how governments have actually addressed the design dilemmas that such taxes can present. This book addresses that gap in the literature. Written by a team of distinguished experts from around the world, it explains how a number of countries tax capital gains and discusses what works and what doesn’t. Learn More

  9. Handbook of Innovation and Standards

    Handbook of Innovation and Standards

    Edited by Richard Hawkins, Knut Blind, Robert Page
    Innovation and standardization might seem to represent polar opposites, but over many years, various scholars have noted close connections between the two. This Handbook assembles a broad range of thinking on this subject, from several disciplinary perspectives, as contributed by over 30 leading scholars and experienced practitioners. Collectively, they summarize and synthesize the existing body of knowledge (theory and evidence) pertaining to standards and innovation, and provide many insights into how this knowledge can be useful to scholars, industrial strategists, policy-makers and standards practitioners.

    Economics and Environmental Change

    Clement A. Tisdell
    In this innovative book, Clement Tisdell adopts a holistic approach, combining economic, social, biophysical and historical considerations to analyse the economic origins of our major contemporary environmental problems, especially those associated with climate change. The ability of humankind to respond effectively to these problems is assessed in a unique and lucid fashion. The depth and nature of social embedding is identified as the major (but not the only) barrier to dealing effectively with human-induced environmental change. Learn More

  17. Time, Space and Capital

    Time, Space and Capital

    Åke E. Andersson, David Emanuel Andersson
    In this challenging book, the authors demonstrate that economists tend to misunderstand capital. Frank Knight was an exception, as he argued that because all resources are more or less durable and have uncertain future uses they can consequently be classed as capital. Thus, capital rather than labor is the real source of creativity, innovation, and accumulation. But capital is also a phenomenon in time and in space. Offering a new and path-breaking theory, they show how durable capital with large spatial domains — infrastructural capital such as institutions, public knowledge, and networks — can help explain the long-term development of cities and nations.

  19. Econometrics as a Con Art

    Econometrics as a Con Art

    Imad A. Moosa
    The book presents a critique of econometrics and a challenge to the common practices in empirical work in economics and finance. It is demonstrated with numerous examples that econometric methods and models can be manipulated in a variety of ways to produce the desired results, which may be taken to support faulty policy recommendations, ideological beliefs or the agendas of some private interests. Contrary to what is claimed by some econometricians, nothing has happened to take the con out of econometrics as Edward Leamer famously said back in 1983. Learn More

    Handbook of Middle Management Strategy Process Research

    Edited by Steven W. Floyd, Bill Wooldridge
    The premise of this volume is that the complex social processes that animate strategic decisions involve not only top-level executives, but also middle managers distributed throughout the organization. Designed for doctoral students and others interested in middle managers and strategy process, the Handbook integrates the threads of scholarly work in this domain and charts a course for future research. Chapters are written both by scholars who have ‘paved the way’ for the middle management perspective and scholars who have done recent, cutting edge research from this point of view. Learn More
