This compilation of innovatively selected chapters is not only relevant to contemporary corporate and public sector management, but also a timely guide on the role of digitalization in delivering real-time traceability by bridging gaps in confidence, data silos, distrust, shared credentials, and accountability. Understanding how to eliminate unnecessary layers of middlemen policy brokers and their rent seeking behaviors would provide further insights into how small enterprises and non-profit operate, their challenges or pitfalls, and how they can be improved to better manage the relevant systems.

Island Disputes and Maritime Regime Building in East Asia: Between a Rock and a Hard Place by Min Gyo Koo
English | PDF | 2010 | 217 Pages | ISBN : 0387896694 | 3 MB

islands has emotional content far beyond any material significance because giving way on the island issue to Japan would be considered as once again compromising the sovereignty over the whole Korean peninsula. For Japan, the Dokdo issue may lack the same degree of strategic and economic values and emotional appeal as the other two territorial disputes that Japan has had with Russia and the two Chinas – namely the Northern Territories/Southern Kurile Islands and the Senkaku Islands, respectively. Nevertheless, fishing resources and the maritime boundary issues became highly salient with the introduction of UNCLOS.

New Nationalisms and China's Belt and Road Initiative: Exploring the Transnational Public Domain

New Nationalisms and China's Belt and Road Initiative: Exploring the Transnational Public Domain by Julien Rajaoson, R. Mireille Manga Edimo
English | PDF,EPUB | 2022 | 320 Pages | ISBN : 3031085256 | 15.1 MB

This book is a treatise on cultural globalization and the global political economy. By introducing the transnational public domain in the study of China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), the book goes beyond existing theoretical frameworks involving both the ‘clash between civilizations’ and the ‘time-worn division’ of the world into North and South. It advances a new focus on the theoretical and empirical elements that canvass global cultural behaviours and reactionary attitudes to the expanding Chinese economic norms, cultures and values in different national contexts.

The Diversity of Emerging Capitalisms in Developing Countries: Globalization, Institutional Convergence and Experimentation by Eric Rougier, François Combarnous
English | PDF | 2017 | 467 Pages | ISBN : 3319499467 | 6.3 MB

This book presents the results of a collective and original empirical investigation of the institutional systems underlying the capitalisms that are coming to the fore in developing nations. While varieties of industrialized countries’ capitalisms are extensively scrutinized, those of developing countries’ capitalisms are far less documented. By implementing a unified and original comparative approach based on the institutional complementarity theory, the different contributions of the book find evidence for the originality and extreme heterogeneity of the forms of capitalism to be observed in developing countries. This text analyses capitalist systems as clusters of sectoral institutions and regulations, identifying differences in emerging and developing countries.

Inequality and Poverty: A Short Critical Introduction by S. Subramanian
English | PDF | 2019 | 92 Pages | ISBN : 9811381844 | 1.4 MB

This book provides an entry into the subjects of disparity and deprivation, by attending to issues that have a bearing on certain salient philosophical and conceptual aspects of these subjects. The student doing a graduate course in the measurement of inequality and poverty is all too often plunged directly into the complexities of Schur-convex functions, dominance conditions, partial orders and the axiomatics of characterization theorems. Inequality and poverty as phenomena with profound social and moral implications for the world we live in tend to get submerged in a treatment of the subject that is more suggestive of applied mathematics than of the material conditions of life.

This book explores the diverse challenges facing the EU and in particular examines the impediments to financial stability and sustainable growth and how these can be overcome.

The Soft Budget Constraint — The Emergence, Persistence and Logic of an Institution by Gun Eriksson Skoog
English | PDF | 2000 | 416 Pages | ISBN : 0792379101 | 46.2 MB

This is a story of the soft budget constraint. It seeks an answer to a paradox: the prevalence of the soft budget constraint in spite of the tremendous inefficiencies that it gives rise to, and its persistence in spite of reform of the system of which it is an integral part. The story aims at increasing our understanding of why the phenomenon exists. By studying the case of state­ in Tanzania before, during and after socialism, an explanation of the owned enterprises emergence, persistence and logic of the soft budget constraint is suggested.
