  1. Essentials of Entrepreneurship, Second Edition

    Essentials of Entrepreneurship, Second Edition

    Robert A. Baron, Keith M. Hmieleski
    Drawing on their own creativity, energy, and personal experience, entrepreneurs identify and seek to fill needs not currently being met by existing products or services. By doing so, they create financial/and or social value. This text examines all phases of the entrepreneurial process: ideas for something new and better than what currently exists, determining whether these ideas suggest viable business opportunities, obtaining needed financial and human resources, securing intellectual property protection, launching the new venture, developing strategies for gaining and maintaining competitive advantage, and building a customer base. In discussing these and other topics, the text draws on research findings that help identify variables that play a role in entrepreneurs’ effective performance of these tasks, and so—ultimately—in their success.

  4. Reducing Inequalities in Europe

    Reducing Inequalities in Europe

    Edited by Daniel Vaughan-Whitehead
    International debate has recently focused on increased inequalities and the adverse effects that they may have on both social and economic developments. Income inequality, which is at its highest level for the past half-century, may not only undermine the sustainability of European social policy but also put at risk Europe’s sustainable recovery. A common feature of recent reports on inequality (ILO, OECD, IMF, 2015–2017) is their recognition that the causes emerge from mechanisms in the world of work. The purpose of this book is to investigate the possible role of industrial relations, and social policies more generally, in reducing these inequalities. Learn More

  5. A New Model of Socialism

    A New Model of Socialism

    Bruno Jossa
    A New Model of Socialism focuses on the current crisis of the political Left, a result of the collapse of the Soviet model of society and the decline of statism and kingship. Bruno Jossa expands on existing theories to explore Marx’s notions on economic democracy in a modern setting. He advocates a move away from the centralised planning form of economic socialism towards a self-management system for firms that does not prioritise the interests of one class over another, in order to achieve greater economic democracy. It is argued that the establishment of such a system of democratic firms is the precondition for reducing intervention in the economy, thus enabling the State to perform its ultimate function of serving the public interest.

  9. The Ecology of Tax Systems

    The Ecology of Tax Systems

    Vito Tanzi
    This groundbreaking book analyzes how the ecology of taxation is fundamental for the success or failure of tax systems. It specifically focuses on the role of the ecological environment on taxation; the factors that determine the ecology of taxation; and how the ecology of taxation has changed and may continue to evolve. The implicit, important conclusion is that there are no permanent or universal optimal tax theories: all theories are related to this ecology. Learn More

  10. Firms, Finance and Sustainable Transitions

    Firms, Finance and Sustainable Transitions

    Edgardo Sica
    This thought-provoking book introduces a financial economics perspective to the topic of eco-innovations and, more generally, sociotechnical transitions. It develops a model that illustrates how financial constraints can prevent the development of eco-innovations within companies and hinder the transition process towards a more sustainable regime. Edgardo Sica presents a review of the state of the art, as well as new data from original surveys aimed at testing the impact of financial constraints on eco-innovative decisions at radical and niche levels.

  11. Monopolies, Mergers and Competition Policy

    Monopolies, Mergers and Competition Policy

    F. M. Scherer
    This book collects some of the author's most illuminating recent papers on competition policy published since the turn of the millennium. They focus on three main themes: how technological innovation leads to monopolistic market structures and is reciprocally influenced by them; how competition agencies deal with the links from merger to economic efficiency, static and dynamic; and the behavioral problems posed by ‘tacit’ collusion and monopoly power in vertical market chains. Taken together they provide unique insight into competition, mergers and monopolies from one of the leading pioneers in the field. Learn More

  12. Recent Developments in the Economics of Religion

    Recent Developments in the Economics of Religion

    Edited by Paul Oslington, Paul S. Williams, Mary Hirschfeld
    The interdisciplinary field of economics and religion has come a long way since 2003 when Edward Elgar published the pioneering volume Economics and Religion. The influence of religious ideas on the birth of economics as a discipline and its rise to cultural dominance is now widely recognized. The largely Protestant discussion has been enriched by Roman Catholic contributions stimulated by recent Papal Encyclicals. The economics of religion has now matured into a respectable subfield of economics and articles on religion regularly appear in top economics journals. Together with an original and insightful introduction to place them in context, this volume makes available the most important recent contributions to the field and will be an invaluable research resource for scholars and academics alike.

  14. Fiscal Decentralization and Local Finance in Developing Countries

    Fiscal Decentralization and Local Finance in Developing Countries

    Roy Bahl, Richard M. Bird
    This book draws on experiences in developing countries to bridge the gap between the conventional textbook treatment of fiscal decentralization and the actual practice of subnational government finance. The extensive literature about the theory and practice is surveyed and longstanding problems and new questions are addressed. It focuses on the key choices that must be made in decentralizing, on how economic and political factors shape the choices that countries make, and on how, by paying more attention to the need for a more comprehensive approach and the critical connections between different components of decentralization reform, everyone involved might get more for their money.

  16. Electricity Network Regulation in the EU

    Electricity Network Regulation in the EU

    Edited by Leonardo Meeus, Jean-Michel Glachant
    The UK model of incentive regulation of power grids was at one time the most advanced, and elements of it were adopted throughout the EU. This model worked well, particularly in the context of limited investment and innovation, a single and strong regulatory authority, and limited coordination between foreign grid operators. This enlightening book shows that since 2010 the whole context has changed and regulation has had to catch-up and evolve. The EU is entering a wave of investment, and an era of new services and innovation which has created growing tensions between national regulatory authorities in terms of coordinating technical standards and distribution systems. This is being played out against an increasingly disruptive backdrop of digitzation, new market platforms and novel business models. Learn More

  17. Handbook of Research on Economic and Social Well-Being

    Handbook of Research on Economic and Social Well-Being

    Edited by Conchita D’Ambrosio
    The past decade has been characterized by a burgeoning interest in new concepts of individual and social well-being. The impetus for this new research has stemmed from increased demand from policy makers and civil society for measures of progress that go beyond the traditional measures of GDP, as well as improved datasets allowing individuals and households to be tracked over their life course. The aim of this Handbook is to chart these developments and provide extensive surveys of many of the recent themes that have emerged in the research literature. Some of the topics addressed include poverty. relative deprivation and satisfaction, economic insecurity, social exclusion and inequality, income and social polarization, and social fractionalization and diversity. Each topic is first analyzed from a theoretical perspective, followed by detailed empirical discussion. Learn More

  20. Financial Models and Society

    Financial Models and Society

    Ekaterina Svetlova
    This innovative book employs the social studies of finance approach which aims to enhance the dialogue between finance and sociology by addressing the blind spots of economic and financial theories. In so doing, it challenges the accusations made towards financial models in the aftermath of the last economic crisis and argues that they cannot be condemned indiscriminately. Their influence on markets and society is not straightforward, but determined by the many ways in which models are created and then used. Ekaterina Svetlova analyses the various patterns of the application of models in asset management, risk management and financial engineering to demonstrate that their power is far more fragile than widespread criticism would indicate.
