  4. Globalizing Welfare

    Globalizing Welfare

    Edited by Stein Kuhnle, Per Selle, Sven E.O. Hort
    From the welfare state’s origins in Europe, the idea of human welfare being organized through a civilized, institutionalized and uncorrupt state has caught the imagination of social activists and policy-makers around the world. This is particularly influential where rapid social development is taking place amidst growing social and gender inequality. This book reflects on the growing academic and political interest in global social policy and ‘globalizing welfare’, and pays particular attention to developments in Northern European and North-East Asian countries.

  5. Understanding the Blockchain Economy

    Understanding the Blockchain Economy

    Chris Berg, Sinclair Davidson, Jason Potts
    Blockchains are the distributed ledger technology that powers Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

  6. Transforming Industrial Policy for the Digital Age

    Transforming Industrial Policy for the Digital Age

    Edited by Patrizio Bianchi, Clemente R. Durán, Sandrine Labory
    This book argues that digital globalization is inducing deep and productive transformations, making industrial policy necessary in order to reorientate development towards inclusive and more sustainable growth. The book also demonstrates that industrialization remains an important development process for emerging countries. Regarding the future of jobs, the authors show how the substitution of labour in automation is not inevitable since technology is also complementary to human capital. Policymakers should pay more attention to the new skills that will be required. A particular concern is is the rapid change in technology and business compared to institutions which take time to adapt. Territories have an important role to play in order to speed-up institutional adaptation, providing they can act coherently with the other levels of government. Learn More

    Yasuyuki Motoyama

  14. The Robot Revolution

    The Robot Revolution

    John Hudson
    In the coming decades robots and artificial intelligence will fundamentally change our world. In doing so they offer the hope of a golden future, but there are dangers.
