Institutions And Regulation For Economic Growth?

Public Interests versus Private Incentives
Edited by Emiel F.M. Wubben, Associate Professor in Strategic Management for the Management Studies Group, Wageningen University, the Netherlands
Realizing institutions and regulations that foster economic growth is an essential asset for contemporary economies. This book investigates practices and options for steering individual and firm behaviour that prevents unacceptable externalities and boosts public interests. These multi-dimensional interactions are investigated in three areas; innovativeness, especially in terms of IP rights; food safety requirements and the impact on EU-competitiveness; and economic stability, particularly within the banking industry. The book provides complementary views and offers clear and relevant conclusions.
