Financial, Staffing and Societal Sustainability of Dutch Health Care

Financial, Staffing and Societal Sustainability of Dutch Health Care: An Urgent Need for Clear Choices by Gijsbert Werner , Arthur van Riel , Mérove Gijsberts , Marianne de Visser
English | PDF EPUB (True) | 2024 | 301 Pages | ISBN : 3031585631 | 18 MB

This book analyzes how sound choices can be made in Dutch health care policies, and shows why they are necessary, urgent, and even inevitable. Analyzing the current functioning and funding of the Dutch health care system, this book shows how three dimensions of sustainability – financial, staffing and societal – are under increasing pressure. This study explores priority setting in health care and calls for well-informed, clear and sometimes uncompromising choices in the allocation of means and personnel. This is necessary in order to maintain accessible and high-quality care for all, and to improve public health. Making balanced choices in health care is of particular importance to vulnerable groups whose voices may not be heard as readily or effectively in the public debate, and whose interests are more easily crowded out. Prioritizing in the domain of public health care is first and foremost a political responsibility, but also one for health care providers across the system and ultimately also for citizens. While this work focuses on the Netherlands, similar processes are at play across the developed economies, making it broadly relevant to policy makers, health care professionals and health care (policy) researchers grappling with the questions surrounding the sustainability of public health care.

From Majority Rule to Inclusive Politics

From Majority Rule to Inclusive Politics by Peter Emerson
English | PDF | 2016 | 167 Pages | ISBN : 3319234994 | 4.1 MB

This book discusses voting procedures in collective decision-making. Drawing on well-established election processes from all over the world, the author presents a voting procedure that allows for the speedy but fair election of a proportional, all-party coalition. The methodology - a matrix vote - is accurate, robust and ethno-color blind. In the vote, the counting procedure encourages all concerned to cross the gender as well as any party and/or sectarian divides. While in the resulting executive each party will be represented fairly and, at best, with the consensus of parliament, every minister will be the one most suited to his/her new portfolio. By using preferential voting and thus achieving consensus, the matrix vote will be fundamental to the resolution of conflicts.

Public Policies and Sustainable Development in Post-Reform India

Public Policies and Sustainable Development in Post-Reform India : Regional Responses and the Way Forward by Mukunda Mishra, Subrata Saha, Madhabendra Sinha
English | PDF (True) | 2023 | 424 Pages | ISBN : 9819936950 | 7.6 MB

This book portrays India as a representative of post-colonial democratic republic states with a parliamentary form of federal-structured government and analyzes the critical challenges faced by such states in generating broadly shared economic well-being and quality of life. The reader is shown how creating and utilizing physical, human, financial, and social assets under the aegis of public policies help achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to provide a global framework to move toward a more equitable, peaceful, resilient, and prosperous society by 2030. It not only addresses how the state’s capacity has long been linked to the available economic resources, but also unfolds how the political system thus evolves to crucially determine the capacity of the state to implement its programs. The chapters of this book are particularly focused on judging the state’s capacity amid the neo-liberal ascendancy that has been triggered by the opening up of both the domestic and external economy, significantly initiated since 1991 and popularly known as the economic reforms in India.

The Economics of Informational Decentralization: Complexity, Efficiency, and Stability: Essays in Honor of Stanley Reiter

The Economics of Informational Decentralization: Complexity, Efficiency, and Stability: Essays in Honor of Stanley Reiter by John O. Ledyard
English | PDF | 1994 | 448 Pages | ISBN : 0792395026 | 37.7 MB

In this volume are papers written by students and co-authors of Stanley Reiter. The collection reflects to some extent the range of his interests and intellectual curiosity. He has published papers in statistics, manage­ ment science, international trade, and welfare economics. He co-authored early papers in economic history and is reported to be largely responsible for giving the field its name of Cliometrics. He helped initiate, nurture and establish the area of economics now known as mechanism design which studies information decentralization, incentives, computational complexity and the dynamics of decentralized interactions. The quality, craft, depth, and innovative nature of his work has always been at an exceptionally high level. Stan has had a strong and important direct effect on many students at Purdue University and Northwestern University. He created and taught a course which all of his students have both dreaded and respected. Using the Socratic method in remarkably effective ways to teach theory skills, he has guided, prodded, and encouraged us to levels we did not think we were capable of. Some of his students are represented in this volume. But even those whose careers took directions other than mathematical economics still consider that training to be an important component of their success. Stan's students include department chairmen, business executives, Deans, a Secretary of the Air Force, and a College President. His guidance has been necessary and fundamental to whatever successes we have had.

English | PDF EPUB (True) | 2023 | 158 Pages | ISBN : 3031297601 | 16.9 MB

This book examines public debt hoarding within the Euro Area, which is one of the most complicated challenges regarding modern fiscal policy-making. The author offers an up-to-date analysis of the fiscal situations of Italy, Spain, Portugal, and Greece. The book describes key mechanisms of debt transmission, discusses the potential establishment of fiscal and debt union in the EU, identifies numerous implications, and connects the fiscal positions of the examined countries with the structural flaws of the Euro Area and the monetary policy of the European Central Bank. Moreover, the work presents an estimation of structural budget balances, including a comparison with the estimates of major international institutions such as the IMF, OECD, and European Commission. A separate chapter is devoted to analysing the fiscal policy determinants, using time series since the late 19th century, and the issue of fiscal policy efficiency. Finally, the work provides an overview of debt resolution options. Overall, this book offers eight core chapters intended for the public, professional economists, and policymakers.

The Inequality Puzzle: European and US Leaders Discuss Rising Income Inequality

The Inequality Puzzle: European and US Leaders Discuss Rising Income Inequality by Roland Berger , David Grusky , Tobias Raffel , Geoffrey Samuels , Chris Wimer
English | PDF | 223 Pages | ISBN : 364215803X | 2.7 MB

Is there too much inequality? We are witnessing for the first time in many decades a vigorous public debate in the United States and many European countries as to whether income inequality is approaching unjustifiable levels. The financial crisis has drawn special attention to remuneration at financial firms, as well as other more broadly based increases in inequality, and the pendulum may well have swung back toward attitudes favoring strengthened regulations. It is against this background of shifting public and political views about income inequality that the Roland Berger Foundation decided to solicit the opinions of U. S. and European political, business, and labor leaders by partnering with the Stanford Center for the Study of Poverty and Inequality.

Financial Markets Theory: Equilibrium, Efficiency and Information by Emilio Barucci
English | PDF | 2003 | 473 Pages | ISBN : 1447110935 | 50.26 MB

Financial Markets Theory presents classical asset pricing theory, a theory composed of milestones such as portfolio selection, risk aversion, fundamental asset pricing theorem, portfolio frontier, CAPM, CCAPM, APT, the Modigliani-Miller Theorem, no arbitrage/risk neutral evaluation and information in financial markets. Starting from an analysis of the empirical tests of the above theories, the author provides a discussion of the most recent literature, pointing out the main advancements within classical asset pricing theory and the new approaches designed to address open problems (e.g. behavioural finance).

An Accidental Brexit: New EU and Transatlantic Economic Perspectives by Paul J.J. Welfens
English | PDF | 2017 | 451 Pages | ISBN : 3319582704 | 6.3 MB

This book analyzes how the EU referendum in the United Kingdom came to pass and what the foreseeable consequences are for the UK, Europe, US and world economy. The Brexit decision represents a momentous event for Europe, which weakens the EU and shifts the global balance of power. Welfens argues the EU has lost its appeal and is not in keeping with the twenty-first century, which is being shaped by Asia and digital innovations.

Payment Services Directive II: Regulatorik im Zahlungsverkehr vor dem Hintergrund von FinTechs und Open Banking by Markus Bramberger
Deutsch | PDF | 2019 | 166 Pages | ISBN : 3658247746 | 7.6 MB

Markus Bramberger untersucht die europaweite Umsetzung der Payment Services Directive II (PSD II) im Bankensektor, die sich in allen EU-Ländern durch eine regional divergierende Auslegung der Gesetzestexte unterscheidet. Der Autor gibt Antworten auf die Frage, ob Banken – wie wir sie noch heute kennen – pauschal durch innovative und digital exzellent positionierte Dienstleister, wie z. B. durch FinTech-Unternehmen, im Zuge von Open Banking substituiert werden können. Es ist offensichtlich, dass nur operativ klar ausgerichtete Unternehmensleitbilder der Digitalisierungsoffensive standhalten. Vor dem Hintergrund dieser herausfordernden, aber auch chancengenerierenden Zeit im Bankensektor leistet dieses Buch einen wesentlichen Beitrag über die Zukunft des bargeldlosen Geldtransfers im gesamten EU-Raum.

Vanishing Borders of Urban Local Finance: Global Developments with Illustrations from Indian Federation

Vanishing Borders of Urban Local Finance: Global Developments with Illustrations from Indian Federation by Shyam Nath, Yeti Nisha Madhoo
English | PDF,EPUB | 2022 | 377 Pages | ISBN : 981195299X | 13.6 MB

This book examines the emerging trends in vanishing borders of urban local government finance due to uncertain local tax and expenditure regimes. It analyzes the global developments with illustrations from state budgetary operations of the Indian federation. This trend has gained momentum due to concentration of population in cities and big towns as a consequence of globalization, leading to enhanced environmental vulnerability due to climate change. Expanding expenditure needs have not been corresponded by revenue regimes and transfers. Moreover, involving corporate sector in local area preference initiatives through mandatory corporate social responsibility (CSR) is an interesting development. It is expected to work as a local fiscal additionality to supplement locally provided civic and infrastructure services. This additionality may also evolve into public private partnerships at the local level. Such development however has the potential of displacing local government operations.
