  2. Technical Progress and Economic Growth

    Technical Progress and Economic Growth

    Ranald J. Taylor
    Most of the studies conducted to examine the growth performance of many developing economies are based on the traditional neoclassical growth frameworks. This book takes an alternative path. It employs a blend of historical, neoclassical, Kaldorian, and endogenous growth frameworks to shed further light on the growth process. Whereas most cross-sectional growth analyses tend to focus only on the steady state, this volume is one of the relative few that attempt to trace the whole growth path. In doing so, it addresses a number of important factors and issues associated with economic growth, and aims to answer to one of the hardest and most fundamental questions – how do we get poor developing countries on the path to sustained growth?

  4. Sustainable Automobile Transport

    Sustainable Automobile Transport

    Lisa Ryan, Hal Turton
    Transport, and in particular road transport, represents a significant global threat to long-term sustainable development, and is one of the fastest-growing consumers of final energy and sources of greenhouse gas emissions. In this book, long-term energy–economy–environment scenarios are used to identify the key technological developments required to address the challenges passenger car transport poses to climate change mitigation and energy security. It also considers possible targets for policy support and examines some of the elements that contribute to the significant levels of uncertainty – particularly social and political conditions. The book then builds on this long-term scenario analysis with a broad review of recent empirical examples of relevant policy implementation to identify near-term options for the passenger transportation sector which may promote a shift towards a more sustainable transport system over the longer term.

  5. The Korean Economy

    The Korean Economy

    Wan-Soon Kim, You-il Lee
    The Korean Economy examines how Korea’s inward FDI-led globalization, particularly since the financial crisis of 1997, has been experienced, understood, managed and often strongly resisted in various economic, social and cultural domains. It is an in-depth analysis combining perspectives from politics and economics, examining a number of grievances as seen through the eyes of actual foreign investors operating in Korea. The authors argue that it is precisely these obstacles that need to be addressed if Korea is to live up to its full potential in terms of becoming a truly attractive magnet for FDI and comprehensively integrating into the global economy. The authors make a convincing case that the challenges Korea currently faces are by no means limited to institutional and policy reforms, but rather are entrenched in an anti-globalization mindset shared by all sectors of society.

  6. Productivity in Asia

    Productivity in Asia

    Edited by Dale Jorgenson, Masahiro Kuroda, Kazuyuki Motohashi
    The outstanding economic performance of East Asian countries has been investigated in numerous studies. However, most comparative studies analyze macro-level productivity. In this book, the productivity performance of China, Korea, Japan, Taiwan and the United States are compared at industry level. The work is a result of an international collaborative research project by RIETI (Research Institute of Economy, Trade and Industry), Japan. The total factor productivity growth and level amongst these five countries sheds new light on the industrial competitiveness of growing Asian economies compared to Japan and the United States. In addition, this book provides detailed information on productivity datasets for these five countries. Learn More

  8. Asian Firms

    Asian Firms

    Frank B. Tipton
    Frank Tipton’s book is a comparative study of the management structures of Asian firms. As Asian economies continue to expand, the management of Asian firms becomes ever more important, whether they are suppliers, customers, partners, or rivals. As the author argues, Asian firms are very different from their Western counterparts, and these differences reflect the variations in national history and institutions within which they operate.

  13. The Dynamics of Regional Development

    The Dynamics of Regional Development

    Edited by Arsenio M. Balisacan, Hal Hill
    A decade and a half since the Philippines embarked on a major program of decentralization, the authors of this book have undertaken a detailed examination of all aspects of the nation’s regional dynamics and policies. Their analysis extends to comparable experiences in East Asia, particularly China and Indonesia. The lessons of this book are relevant not only for an audience interested in the Philippines – a large developing nation with a population soon to exceed 100 million people – but also for many other developing countries now embarking on decentralization programs. The book therefore has broad international appeal. Learn More

  14. Market Development in China

    Market Development in China

    Edited by Belton M. Fleisher, Haizheng Li, Shunfeng Song
    Market Development in China presents the analysis of leading specialists on the causes, benefits and problems resulting from China’s transition to a market economy. As the authors illustrate, it is generally recognized that in the last 25 years China has achieved a rate of economic growth unmatched in any of the world’s major countries. However, this growth has been unequally shared, so that by the year 2000, China also exhibited what to many observers was an alarming degree of income inequality at individual, sectoral, and regional levels.

This significant book analyses the viability of controlling climate change through a set of regional or sub-global climate agreements rather than via a global treaty. Learn More

    Edited by Kam C. Chan, Hung-Gay Fung, Qingfeng ‘Wilson’ Liu
    China’s economy has been growing rapidly since the late 1970s and is expected to maintain this momentum in the foreseeable future.

Also addressed are the recent performance of equity markets, the emergence of small and medium enterprises, and the state banks’ bids to be listed in overseas stock exchanges. Taken together, the book sheds a welcome light on China’s overall economic growth. Learn More
