    Handbook of Research on Entrepreneurship and Aging

    Edited by Mikaela Backman, Charlie Karlsson, Orsa Kekezi

This Handbook deals with the important and emerging field of entrepreneurship among this group and focuses on the behavioral perspectives of this phenomenon; on innovation, dynamics and performance; and the ways entrepreneurship among the elderly looks within different countries.

  2. Geofinance between Political and Financial Geographies

    Geofinance between Political and Financial Geographies

    Edited by Silvia Grandi, Christian Sellar, Juvaria Jafri
    This edited collection explores the boundaries between political and financial geographies, focusing on the linkages between the changing strategies, policies and institutions of the state. It also investigates banks and other financial institutions affected by both state policies and a globalizing financial system, and the financial resources available to firms as well as households. In so doing, the book highlights how an empirical focus on the semi-periphery of the financial system may generate new perspectives on the entanglement between (geo) politics and finance. Learn More

  9. Local Accountability and National Coordination in Fiscal Federalism

    Local Accountability and National Coordination in Fiscal Federalism

    Charles R. Hankla, Jorge Martinez-Vazquez, Raúl A. Ponce Rodríguez
    This book argues that fiscal federalism will consistently deliver on its governance promises only when democratic decentralization is combined with the integration of political parties. It formalizes this argument and, using new data on subnational political institutions, tests it with models of education, health, and infrastructure service delivery in 135 countries across 30 years. It also presents comparative case studies of Senegal and Nigeria. The book emphasizes that a “fine balance” in local governance can be achieved when integrated party structures compensate for the potential downsides of a decentralized state. Learn More
