  1. The Automotive Industry in an Era of Eco-Austerity

    The Automotive Industry in an Era of Eco-Austerity

    Peter E. Wells
    This unique book seeks to combine economic analysis with the environmental research to arrive at a comprehensive understanding of the forces that shape change in the automotive industry. It eschews the usual focus on technologies, and gives more attention to the impact of change on the business models and strategies adopted by the vehicle manufacturers, the scope for new entrants, and the implications for policy-makers. This richly textured book concludes that the achievement of a sustainable automotive industry will not be possible with ‘one best way’, but that myriad technologies and business concepts, grounded in the distinct needs of different places and consumers, will be the basis of the future of mobility.

  2. SMEs in a Globalised World

    SMEs in a Globalised World

    Edited by Helena Lenihan, Bernadette Andreosso-O’Callaghan, Mark Hart
    This insightful book shows how small and medium enterprises (SMEs) from some of the traditionally less dynamic peripheral economies of the ‘old’ EU – namely Ireland, Italy, Portugal and Spain – have responded to the twin challenges of globalisation and industrial restructuring. Through a series of unique case studies the contributing authors discuss how these economies, and in particular the SME sector, can be transformed. Learn More

    Handbook of Research on Nonprofit Economics and Management

    Edited by Bruce A. Seaman, Dennis R. Young
    Nonprofit organizations are arguably the fastest growing and most dynamic part of modern market economies in democratic countries. This Handbook explores the frontiers of knowledge at the intersection of economics and the management of these entities. The authors review the role, structure and behavior of private, nonprofit organizations as economic units and their participation in markets and systems of public service delivery, assess the implications of this knowledge for the efficient management of nonprofit organizations and the formulation of effective public policy, and identify cutting edge questions for future research.

  6. The Governance of Network Industries

    The Governance of Network Industries

    Edited by Rolf W. Kunneke, John Groenewegen, Jean-François Auger
    Infrastructures are subject to substantial readjustments of governance structures, often labeled as liberalization, privatization or re-regulation. This affects all traditional infrastructure sectors including communications, energy, transport and water. This study highlights and illustrates some of the major challenges for readjusting the governance of network industries from an economic, institutional, political and technological perspective. The three parts of the book address the institutional design of infrastructures, the role of technology in different sectors and actor behaviour. Learn More

  11. Technological Change and Mature Industrial Regions

    Technological Change and Mature Industrial Regions

    Edited by Mahtab A. Farshchi, Odile E.M. Janne, Philip McCann
    Technological Change and Mature Industrial Regions explicitly adopts an inter-disciplinary approach to analysing the structural transformation of mature regions. The major focus of the book is from an economics perspective, but it also employs sociological analyses, business history approaches and technological analyses. It critically considers the identification and development of regional capabilities and regional policy initiatives for mature industrial areas in the context of globalisation and technological change. Specific cases from a range of different countries help to distinguish which aspects of mature regions’ technology, knowledge or structure are region-specific, and which are more generally applicable to mature industrial regions throughout the world. The book will prove to be invaluable for academic researchers as well as government and policy communities. Learn More

    The Dynamics of Standards

    Edited by Tineke M. Egyedi, Knut Blind
    This book addresses the new field of standards dynamics. It focuses in particular on the tension between standards and change.

However, technologies change at an increasing pace, particularly in the field of information technology (IT). Learn More

  16. Incomplete Markets

    Incomplete Markets

    Edited by Michael Magill, Martine Quinzii
    This two-volume set offers an extraordinary précis of classic articles on the general equilibrium theory of incomplete markets. The first volume presents the contributions to the theory of incomplete markets over a finite horizon. Many of the papers focus on two-period economies. This setting provides the simplest version of the incomplete-market model. However, the study of incomplete markets has evolved from finite to infinite horizon economies. The second volume examines the interesting new technical and conceptual issues that arise from the exploration of incomplete market economies over an open-ended future. Learn More

  19. Industrial Innovation and Firm Performance

    Industrial Innovation and Firm Performance

    Mario I. Kafouros
    It has long been recognized that R&D plays a key role in the global battle for technological leadership. However, due to intense competition and rivals’ imitations, firms are not always able to reap rewards from their innovations. Mario Kafouros theoretically and empirically examines the impacts of innovation and scientific knowledge on the productivity performance of multinational corporations, and the conditions under which companies benefit from their technological discoveries. The book also investigates the extent to which the research efforts of other companies can contribute to a firm’s productivity, and how multinationals build on external inventions, ideas and knowledge.
