  1. Debt and Economic Performance

    Debt and Economic Performance

    Edited by Cristina D. Checherita-Westphal
    This compelling volume touches on the contemporary debates in macroeconomics that have consequentially emerged as a result of government debt. Should governments tolerate high public debt or become more indebted given the now prevailing low interest rates? Or is high public debt bad for private sector confidence and growth, by feeding uncertainty, expectation of future tax hikes and an imminent collapse in the wake of the next crisis? This volume presents a collection of articles reflecting on these complex and intriguing topics. Prefaced by an original introduction from the editor, this collection will be useful for policy makers and academics alike, while being particularly suited for those wishing to explore this exciting research area further.

  2. Financialising City Statecraft and Infrastructure

    Financialising City Statecraft and Infrastructure

    Andy Pike, Peter O’Brien, Tom Strickland, Graham Thrower, John Tomaney
    Financialising City Statecraft and Infrastructure addresses the struggles of national and local states to fund, finance and govern urban infrastructure. It develops fresh thinking on financialisation and city statecraft to explain the socially and spatially uneven mixing of managerial, entrepreneurial and financialised city governance in austerity and limited decentralisation across England. As urban infrastructure fixes for the London global city-region risk undermining national ‘rebalancing’ efforts in the UK, city statecraft in the rest of the country is having uneasily to combine speculation, risk-taking and prospective venturing with co-ordination, planning and regulation.

  3. The Logic of Public–Private Partnerships

    The Logic of Public–Private Partnerships

    Graeme A. Hodge, Carsten Greve
    This book examines Public–Private Partnerships (PPP), and tracks the movement from early technical optimism to the reality of PPP as a phenomenon in the political economy. Today's economic turbulence sees many PPP assumptions changed: what contracts can achieve, who bears the real risks, where governments get advice and who invests. As the gap between infrastructure needs and available financing widens, governments and businesses both must seek new ways to make contemporary PPP approaches work. Learn More
