  2. Urban and Regional Prosperity in a Globalised New Economy

    Urban and Regional Prosperity in a Globalised New Economy

    Edited by Roger Sugden, Rita Hartung Cheng, G. Richard Meadows
    There is currently a popular view that the world is undergoing profound changes in the fundamental relationships upon which it is organised. In particular, there is widespread talk of a ‘globalised’ economy, facilitated by and associated with ‘new’ technologies and practices. There is a further consensus that within this ‘globalised’, ‘new’ economy, regionalisation in some form is important. The aim of this volume is to address these topical issues, presenting perspectives from which they can be analysed and exploring specific aspects in greater detail. The contributors provide a framework for understanding current trends, and suggest approaches that highlight appropriate ways forward in the context of both opportunities and dangers. In doing so, they discuss specific cases and explore detailed policy possibilities, including the prospect of stimulating change through multinational engagement and debate. Learn More

  3. Culture, Institutions and Economic Development

    Culture, Institutions and Economic Development

    Michael Keating, John Loughlin, Kris Deschouwer
    This book offers a systematic comparison of eight distinct regions and stateless nations, each with its own historical identity, but which is constantly being rebuilt in changing economic and political conditions. Avoiding economic or cultural determinism, the authors show how region-builders can shape their own responses to global challenges to produce models of development reflecting differing understandings and social compromises.

  4. Economic Reform in Japan

    Economic Reform in Japan

    Edited by Craig Freedman
    While many Western economists forcefully urge the Japanese to become more like the US, there are other academics who have registered strong reservations to such a simplistic solution. In this volume, noted scholars take opposing positions on key issues including financial reform, corporate change and international trade. The editor contributes a thought-provoking introduction which also presents an overview of the topic. The papers gathered here present an opportunity for readers to consider the underlying conflicts in Japan’s economy and society that makes choosing a new direction such a difficult proposition.

    Michael Keating
    In the 1990s, the states of western Europe faced twin challenges, from above in the shape of globalization and European integration, and from below in the form of new regionalist movements. In this authoritative book, Michael Keating traces the historical origins of regionalism, showing that territorial politics has always been a feature of the west European state. Learn More
