  5. The Making of China’s Exchange Rate Policy

    The Making of China’s Exchange Rate Policy

    Leong H. Liew, Harry X. Wu
    During Asia’s financial crisis, the attention of policymakers was focused on China’s exchange rate policy. Post-crisis, this interest has increased further due to China’s growing influence in world trade and investment. However, the process of policy making in China is still opaque, creating demand for further research on how China formulates exchange rate policy. This book examines the major factors influencing China’s exchange rate policy from the foundation of the People’s Republic to the present. It analyses how national economic and political priorities, international influences, domestic and institutional interests and new constraints imposed by China’s rapidly globalising post-Mao economy determine exchange rate policy.

  9. The Impact of the WTO

    The Impact of the WTO

    Trish Kelly
    This volume is the first to provide a comprehensive analysis of the nine environmental and health disputes that have been adjudicated at the WTO since 1995. The investigation concludes that criticism of the WTO has been overstated and, surprisingly, nations do in fact retain sovereignty over environmental and health policy. The disputes explored suggest that the WTO has been able to balance trade, environmental and health objectives. The discussion illuminates the strengths and weaknesses of the dispute resolution process and closes with suggestions for improving it. Learn More

  10. The International Monetary Fund and the World Economy

    The International Monetary Fund and the World Economy

    Edited by Graham Bird, Dane Rowlands
    A large and growing academic literature seeks to analyse the key aspects of the International Monetary Fund’s operations from both theoretical and empirical perspectives. This two-volume set draws together what are generally acknowledged to be the most important contributions. In the main it focuses on the economics of the IMF but also reflects the fact that a full understanding of the Fund will only be achieved if its political dimensions are also addressed. The collected articles demonstrate the way in which research on the IMF has evolved over time. They cover the role of the IMF, the determinants of IMF lending, conditionality and the implementation and effects of IMF programs, the prolonged use of IMF resources as well as the IMF’s own reserve asset, the Special Drawing Right. No serious student of the IMF will want to be without this up-to-date and comprehensive collection. Learn More

  11. 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. Modern State Intervention in the Era of Globalisation

    Modern State Intervention in the Era of Globalisation

    Nikolaos Karagiannis, Zagros Madjd-Sadjadi
    The authors of this book argue that in order to meet the challenges of globalisation and promote their own economic welfare, governments need strong policy instruments that will enable them to take up a strategic role in selected policy arenas. They illustrate how this retooling of policymaking requires a rethinking of the form of government intervention and, especially, an emphasis on its modern developmental role. Learn More
