Transatlantic perspectives on the euro by C. Randall Henning( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume, the fourth in the U.S.-EU Relations Project series of the European Community Studies Association, concentrates on the ramifications of the euro for transatlantic relations. Two of the foremost analysts of monetary integration - C. Randall Henning and Pier Carlo Padoan - explore whether monetary union will lead to cooperation or rivalry between the United States and Europe by examining the political, economic, and institutional interests of these two principal actors. Drawing on perspectives from both sides of the Atlantic, Henning and Padoan have presented an unusually comprehensive and perceptive pair of analyses of the potentials and pitfalls of EMU in the context of U.S.-EU relations."--Jacket

The structural foundations of international finance : problems of growth and stability( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Structural Foundations of International Finance examines the ways in which national economies, especially those of industrialized countries, are affected by the operations of international financial markets. Although these markets provide productive funding, there is also much speculative trading in stocks and currencies which can cause booms, slumps and hinder recovery. The authors advocate entrepreneurial coordination by productive enterprises for balanced and stable growth, with reduced risks of financial crises and recessions." "This topical and highly engaging book will be invaluable for academics and students of business, economics, political economy, international relations and law."--Jacket
The Marshall Plan : lessons learned for the 21st century by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )

11 editions published in 2008 in English and Swedish and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the historical, diplomatic, economic, and strategic aspects of the European Recovery Program (ERP) -- popularly known as the Marshall Plan -- which brought Europe out of the chaos, hunger, poverty, desperation, and ashes of World War II. In it, authors from a variety of countries who are scholars, policy makers, and business leaders, address applications of the Marshall Plan's lessons learned to the 21st century for capacity building, human and sustainable development, and the role of public, private partnerships in emerging market economies and democratic societies. "There are not many of us left who served through the Marshall Plan from its beginning, and fewer still who served time in the Hotel Talleyrand in Paris, the site of the anniversary celebration, in June 2007, of Secretary George C. Marshall's 1947 commencement address launching the European Recovery Program. There are, though, scholars who can address those times and evaluate them so that the experience can live on. "The dedication of the Hotel de Talleyrand as a memorial to that unique enterprise provided the opportunity; and the analyses and evaluations in this splendid volume, The Marshall Plan: Lessons Learned for the 21st Century, reflect the excitement, as well as the accomplishments, of an economic enterprise that produced the infrastructure of NATO and the European Union. Long live the spirit of Marshall's vision!"--Thomas C. Schelling, Marshall Plan alumnus, Washington, Copenhagen, Paris, Washington, '48-'53, Nobel Prize in Economics 2005 "A historical event is and remains crucial when it interacts with others in such a way as to contribute to a deep and positive change in the course of history. In this sense, the Marshall Plan made an outstanding and lasting contribution. It was instrumental to overcoming the temptation of isolationism in the US, to reviving our badly needed economic recovery and gave a decisive input to coordinating our national efforts, thus paving the way to our future European integration." When I think of the world as it would have been without the Marshall Plan, I am encouraged to conclude that even in our challenging times, another, better world is possible. This collection of well written contributions and analyses, The Marshall Plan: Lessons Learned for the 21st Century, further strengthens my convictions.-Giuliano Amato, Former Prime Minister, ItalyFormer Vice President, European Constitutional Assembly
European-American trade and financial alliances by Gavin Boyd( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this, his final book, Gavin Boyd has brought together a distinguished group of experts on the nature and extent of transatlantic policy coordination and its implication for corporate strategy. This remarkably relevant set of papers offer a discussion on the economic and financial linkage between Europe and North America, as well as the trade and investment rules governing this interaction. The complexities of the transatlantic relationship are analyzed in chapters dealing with: financial integration, transfer of knowledge and technology, transatlantic trade and corporate partnership, transatlantic trade and investment links, simultaneous intra-regional as well as transatlantic trade and the implications for antitrust policy of the activities of multinational enterprises, structural positioning and macroeconomic policy coordination, international interdependence and the role of entrepreneurship, and the reform of international financial markets. Exploring growing transatlantic trade and investment linkages within their institutional contexts, this timely book will be invaluable to academics and researchers with an interest in international business and international economics
Europe between East and South by Siro Lombardini( Book )

11 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the end of 1991, the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei hosted the Integration Symposium of the Confederation of European Associations of Economists on "Europe between East and South". This volume brings together the selected and edited proceedings of the conference. The focus of the book is the transformation of the formerly planned economies in Eastern and Central Europe from an international perspective. The opening up of the Eastern bloc adds a new and extremely challenging dimension to the relationship between the more and the less developed economies. Almost all developing countries implemented liberalisation policies throughout the Eighties, thereby dramatically increasing the market orientation of their economies. The "recipes" used in the South are also being applied virtually unmodified, in Eastern Europe. The symposium was one of the first forays comparing the two sets of experiences, showing that the lessons from the South are of great value for Eastern European reforms. Reforms in Eastern European countries equally affect economic flows between Europe and developing countries, and create new challenges for European countries themselves. Eastern Europe is an enclave of cheap and relatively skilled labour, thus a dramatic competitive threat for other developing countries and poorer EC regions. Furthermore, the strategic relevance of this area for the western world is likely to cause a diversion of public resources previously earmarked for the development of southern economies. All these issues could have tremendous consequences for the environment
SMEs, entrepreneurship, and innovation by OECD Publishing( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Small firms are playing an ever-increasing role in innovation, driven by changes in technologies and markets. Some spin-offs and high growth firms are having remarkable success. However, the broad bulk of small firms are not capitalizing on their advantages. This book explores how government policy can boost innovation by improving the environment for entrepreneurship and small firm development and increasing the innovative capacities of enterprises. Policy findings and recommendations are presented in three key areas: embedding firms in knowledge flows; developing entrepreneurship skills; and social entrepreneurship. In addition, country notes present statistics and policy data on SMEs, entrepreneurship and innovation for 40 economies, including OECD countries, Brazil, China, Estonia, Indonesia, Israel, the Russian Federation, Slovenia and South Africa.--Publisher's description

Are global imbalances sustainable? : shedding further light on the causes of current account reversals by Luiz R. de Mello( )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper assesses the sustainability of global imbalances by testing for the presence of unit roots in the current account positions (measured in relation to GDP) of the United States, China, Japan, Germany and the oil-exporting countries using a methodology that allows for structural breaks in levels and trends. We find that the external positions of these major countries/regions are stationary around structural breaks, which define episodes of current account reversals. On the basis of an event analysis of past reversals, it appears that structural breaks are associated with shifts in the fiscal stance, exchange rate parities and potential output growth, a finding that underscores the scope for macroeconomic and structural policies to ensure the sustainability of external positions while avoiding potentially disruptive reversals. These findings have implications for long-term capital flows after the crisis
Technology accumulation and diffusion : is there a regional dimension? by Pier Carlo Padoan( Book )

12 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

June 1997 National patterns of technology diffusion found in country estimates probably reflect sectoral variations more than country variations. They also reflect different degrees of internationalization. Recently, interest in regionalism has mushroomed, and economists have analyzed it not only from the viewpoint of trade but that of foreign investment, macroeconomics, and political economy. But questions of technological regionalism-whether the accumulation and diffusion of technology has a regional dimension-have been considered only marginally and indirectly. Padoan offers an exploratory analysis of the regional dimension of technology and diffusion, examining both country and sectoral aspects of it. Empirical results suggest that regional trade agreements do not necessarily lead to spillover patterns in regional knowledge. But knowledge may be diffused through vehicles other than trade. National patterns of technological accumulation seem more important than regional patterns. In particular, more internationalized economies seem capable of commanding a substantial amount of knowledge diffusion, which may sometimes follow regional patterns. These conclusions are partly confirmed by sectoral estimates that show that regional patterns of knowledge diffusion are highly sector-specific. The knowledge base varies greatly across sectors. This paper - a product of the International Trade Division, International Economics Department - was prepared for the department's research project on regional integration
Trade and the accumulation and diffusion of knowledge by Pier Carlo Padoan( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

November 1996 The accumulation of knowledge affects trade performance and competitiveness, but trade also (through imports) affects the accumulation of knowledge. Padoan examines the properties of a dynamic disequilibrium model focused on trade specialization and the accumulation of knowledge. He uses a sector breakdown (four export and two import sectors) following Pavitt's (1984) taxonomy, which is especially appropriate for empirically analyzing the relationship between innovation activities and production and export performance. Steady-state analysis shows that: * Under perfectly balanced growth (no change in trade specialization and a uniform growth of knowledge), international diffusion of knowledge is irrelevant for growth. * Under unbalanced growth (with changes in the structure of specialization), the process of structural change may be enhanced by the effects on the domestic accumulation of knowledge of domestic spillover, as innovation activities in one sector generate positive externalities on the rest of the economy. The growth of foreign knowledge has an ambivalent effect on domestic performance because it is both a complement to, and a substitute for, domestic knowledge. Whenever these two effects do not perfectly match, the diffusion of international knowledge is associated with unbalanced growth. Imports of knowledge-intensive goods may not lead to higher growth unless there is sufficiently strong trade performance in the knowledge-intensive sectors (that is, there are thresholds in expansion of market share). This result, whose implications for developing countries is relevant, is not usually reported in the literature in which greater accumulation of foreign knowledge unambiguously leads to higher growth in the country that imports technology through trade. Unbalanced growth is also associated with output catching up. Technological catching up is necessary but not sufficient for balanced growth. Parameter estimates were obtained for France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom. Results appear to be consistent with theoretical expectations about the importance of price and nonprice determinants of trade performance in the four sectors. Results also seem to be generally consistent with the distribution of revealed comparative advantages in the sense that the country cases exhibit high and significant price and knowledge elasticities and high adjustment speeds - suggesting a good capacity to deliver in sectors with revealed comparative advantage. Simulation exercises confirm steady-state results on the relevance of country differences in trade specialization and in the domestic accumulation of knowledge as they affect growth. They also clarify the relationship between growth and changes in the structure of trade specialization. This paper - a product of the International Trade Division, International Economics Department - is part of a larger effort in the department to assess the role of technology diffusion in economic development

Innovación y crecimiento : En busca de una frontera en movimiento by World Bank( )

1 edition published in 2013 in Spanish and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La innovación es esencial para el crecimiento a largo plazo, sobre todo tras la crisis económica y financiera. Hacer posible un crecimiento basado en la innovación requiere acción en una amplia gama de políticas, desde la educación y la ciencia y la tecnología hasta los mercados de productos y laboral y el comercio. La OCDE y el Banco Mundial suman esfuerzos para trabajar más de cerca en innovación, particularmente porque el tema es un factor determinante en el éxito de las políticas de desarrollo. En este volumen, ambos organismos reflexionan acerca de la forma en que la globalización plantea nuevos retos para la innovación y el crecimiento en los países tanto desarrollados como en desarrollo, y cómo éstos les hacen frente. Los autores plantean iniciativas de políticas que pueden fomentar la innovación tecnológica en aras de un crecimiento más rápido y sostenido. Los diversos capítulos destacan de qué manera el surgimiento de un mercado global integrado afecta el impacto de las políticas nacionales de innovación. Lo que parecían estrategias efectivas de innovación (por ejemplo, políticas diseñadas para fortalecer la capacidad de I+D de las empresas locales) ya no son suficientes en el entorno actual. La naturaleza más abierta y global de la innovación vuelve a las políticas de innovación más difíciles de diseñar y de implementar tan sólo en el ámbito nacional. Tales retos se complican aún más ante los nuevos fenómenos, como las cadenas de valor globales y la fragmentación de la producción, el creciente papel de las corporaciones globales y la revolución de las TIC. Cuándo y por qué una corporación global elige colocar su producción afecta a la OCDE y a las economías en desarrollo por igual.
