    Economic Growth, Material Flows and the Environment

    Rutger Hoekstra
    Rutger Hoekstra examines the complex relationship between the monetary economy and the materials flows that are extracted and emitted by economic activities. These physical flows are responsible for many important environmental problems such as unsustainable resource depletion, waste production and climate change. This book discusses, applies and improves upon techniques which link the monetary and physical economies for environmental analyses. Learn More

  2. Modernizing China’s Industries

    Modernizing China’s Industries

    Colin G. Brown, Scott A. Waldron, John W. Longworth
    Exposed to powerful new economic forces, and undergoing dramatic ownership reforms and technological changes, China’s industries are modernizing at a breakneck pace. In many industries, the outcomes have been chaotic and poorly aligned with societal objectives. This book analyses the transformation and modernization of China’s industries through a detailed investigation of the wool and wool textile industries. The authors argue that to remain internationally competitive in the post WTO accession era, Chinese industries need to confront a critical new phase in the modernization process – that of improving management practices and industry co-ordination.

    Antitrust and Competition Policy

    Edited by Andrew N. Kleit

  4. Industrial Clusters and Inter-Firm Networks

    Industrial Clusters and Inter-Firm Networks

    Edited by Charlie Karlsson, Börje Johansson, Roger R. Stough
    This book provides a state-of-the-art overview of spatial industrial clusters and inter-firm networks. Given the prevailing political belief that clusters can be a major vehicle for economic development and growth, it is important to have a sound understanding of clusters and how they emerge, grow, eventually stagnate and disappear.

  5. Health Policy and High-Tech Industrial Development

    Health Policy and High-Tech Industrial Development

    Edited by Marco R. Di Tommaso, Stuart O. Schweitzer
    By weaving together the fields of health economics, industrial organisation and industrial development, this book describes the benefits of promoting a country’s health industry as a way of stimulating its high-technology industrial capacity. The authors illustrate that the development of a country’s health industry not only improves the country’s health status, but also promotes an industry with relatively stable, high-wage employment, creates the potential for exporting goods and services, and produces scientific spillovers that will favourably impact other high-technology industries.

  8. The Growth Process in East Asian Manufacturing Industries

    The Growth Process in East Asian Manufacturing Industries

    Chia-Hung Sun
    Although it has been previously accepted that Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan have achieved the ‘economic miracle’ of maintaining high economic growth for several decades prior to the Asian financial crisis, recent literature has now cast doubt upon this economic supposed success. Attempting to overcome methodological limitations and underlying assumptions of other studies, The Growth Process in East Asian Manufacturing Industries re-examines the role of total factor productivity (TFP) growth and aims to identify the sources of output growth in these East Asian economies.

    The Past and Future of America’s Economy

    Robert D. Atkinson
    Robert Atkinson examines this process of change over the past 150 years and explores the responses of people and institutions. The book then analyzes today’s New Economy, including the new information technology system, and effects on markets, organizations, workers, and governance. Taking into account the historical record, the book discusses the shortcomings of prevailing liberal and conservative economic doctrines and lays out a new growth economics agenda aimed at maximizing the productivity-enhancing forces of the New Economy.

  11. European Integration and the Functioning of Product Markets

    European Integration and the Functioning of Product Markets

    Edited by Adriaan Dierx, Fabienne Ilzkovitz, Khalid Sekkat
    The book reveals that European product market integration has a significant impact on the conditions of competition, the strategies of companies and the structure of industry. It adds a quarter of a percentage to annual GDP growth rates and has not led to an increased exposure of the EU to asymmetric shocks. However, the book argues that further improvements in the functioning of European product markets are needed in order to improve the EU’s growth performance over the next decade. Invaluably, the book provides not only current information about Europe’s achievements in economic integration but also methodology to assess the outcome of economic integration in other regions of the World, such as NAFTA, MERCOSUR and ASEAN.

  13. The World’s Wine Markets

    The World’s Wine Markets

    Edited by Kym Anderson
    This absorbing book examines the period of massive structural adjustment taking place in the wine industry. For many centuries wine was very much a European product. While that is still the case today – three-quarters of world wine production, consumption and trade involve Europe and most of the rest involves just a handful of New World countries settled by Europeans – the importance of exports from non-European countries has risen dramatically over the past decade.

    How Cartels Endure and How They Fail

    Edited by Peter Z. Grossman
    Why do some cartels fail and others succeed? This question has intrigued economists for a hundred years, and they have created an extensive body of theory to help explain cartel behaviour. This book looks at the experience of actual cartels and challenges their portrayal as found in the existing literature. Learn More

    Renuka Mahadevan
    Productivity growth has long been recognised by both economists and non-economists as being necessary for all economies aspiring to raise their standard of living. Thus, Renuka Mahadevan aims to highlight the conceptual differences, advantages and disadvantages of the various total factor productivity (TFP) measures and suggests processes and strategies for choosing the best technique to draw up policies for sustainable growth.

    Edited by Jean-Philippe Touffut
    The first book in this important new series, under the general editorship of Nobel Laureate Robert Solow, Institutions, Innovation and Growth assembles a stellar cast of international contributors.
