  3. The Economics of Climate Resilience and Adaptation

    The Economics of Climate Resilience and Adaptation

    Edited by Sam Fankhauser
    Managing climate change requires action on both its causes (reducing emissions) and its consequences (adapting to impacts that can no longer be avoided). Human societies can thrive in many climatic conditions. However, such adaptation is not necessarily smooth, and it cannot be taken for granted. This book synthesises the contribution of economics to the study and practice of climate resilience and adaptation. Including an original introduction by the editor, it brings together in one volume some of the most influential articles by economists on climate change adaptation since the topic became a subject of academic interest.

  6. Institutions and Economic Development

    Institutions and Economic Development

    Edited by Jakob de Haan
    This collection carefully selects some of the most influential papers focusing on the relationship between economic and political institutions and economic development. Economic institutions shape economic incentives, such the incentives to become educated, to save and invest, to innovate and to adopt new technologies. Although economic institutions are critical for determining whether a country is poor or prosperous, it is politics and political institutions that determine which economic institutions are present in a country. This collection explores these critical relationships and the causes of economic growth, whilst bringing forth the legal, colonial and financial factors, which contribute, to economic discrepancies across countries. Prefaced by an authoritative introduction by the editor, this collection promises to be a valuable tool for economic researchers and scholars interested in this important subject. Learn More

  7. Market Failure

    Market Failure

    Edited by Stephen Martin
    The powerful theorems of welfare economics operate under a range of assumptions. Two of the most significant are the existence of competitive markets for all goods and services – including futures markets – and the unbounded rationality of all economic agents who act independently to maximize payoffs. In the contributions collected in this three-volume set, economists come to grips with the consequences of markets falling short of assumptions, as well as the response of institutions to observed market characteristics. Together with an original introduction by the editor, this comprehensive collection will be of interest to economists and policymakers who wish to understand the strengths and limitations of the market mechanism of resource allocation.

  12. Forum Shopping and International Commercial Law

    Forum Shopping and International Commercial Law

    Edited by Franco Ferrari, Aaron D. Simowitz
    Commentators and courts disagree on such fundamental issues as the definition of forum shopping and whether it is an ‘unsung virtue’ or an untrammelled vice. Disagreements persist on how to deal with ‘virtuous’ forum shopping or how best to proscribe “evil” forum shopping, if such a distinction can at all be made. The articles reprinted in this three-volume collection illuminate, explore and contest these questions. Volume I analyses the definitions and purposes of forum shopping, the right and duty to practise it and how it relates to private international law. Volume II focuses on the link between forum shopping and uniform substantive law as well as discussing jurisdictional issues and arbitration. Volume III investigates defamation, intellectual property and competition law, as well as examining insolvency proceedings along with treaty shopping. Together with an introduction by the editors, this collection provides a comprehensive overview of the topic and will prove useful to academics, students and practitioners alike. Learn More
