Fighting corruption in Asia causes, effects, and remedies ( )
12 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fundamental changes within economies are needed to create arm's-length relations between governments, corporations, and banks. We are taking risks when investing in the future, and risk-taking demands openness and truthfulness from the agents we employ. If investors and accountants can concur on the degree of disclosure that is morally right we may come to some global agreement on what constitutes corruption - but to do this we have to bring together those who advocate profit-making with those who see this as usury; and we have to care for the future in novel ways - unknown in the past - so as to allow firms to be locally inefficient (apparently) while preserving the environment. This text examines the prevailing situation in Asia and considers how little some governments are doing to guide their institutions towards probity and transparency. While fundamental changes are needed around the globe, it is in the developing nations that there is scope for radical change in the near future, as their institutions are recreated to meet the modern world. Once developed and functioning their managers will have the opportunity to facilitate and re-direct the institutions in the developed world, which happen to be more conservative than their own
Corruption and governance in Asia by John Kidd ( Book )
14 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work delves into the nature of governance in Asia at government and corporate level. The authors advise local models appropriate to the state of development and suggest that individual countries institute behavioural models that will mature as nations develop in an increasingly global world
Infrastructure and productivity in Asia : political, financial, physical and intellectual underpinnings by John Kidd ( Book )
8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book examines several key issues facing government ministers, international aid organizations and business managers who all hope to promote business or to do business in Asia. The fundamentals of infrastructures are reviewed - ranging from the need to support educational infrastructure, to a review of terrorist networks that use their own infrastructures as well as that of the internet. The authors argue that modern infrastructure is interdependent. Yet if it is disconnected, society will not develop smoothly and the gap between the 'haves' and the 'have nots' will widen. Contributions are provided by an international group of distinguished academics, managers and policy makers who contribute chapters on: - Infrastructure, systems, creativity and the role of human capital - the role of governance in major conglomerates as well as family-run businesses - the need to improve administrations to better use their human and intellectual capital - the development of a wired society across Asia and its implications - the development leadership to use the breadth of infrastructure interconnectedness

Infrastructure and Productivity in Asia ( )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
There is a feeling that Asia is at a crossroad, and is facing a new crisis. The earlier crisis of 1997/98 showed that effective systems were missing. Afterwards governments, foreign investors and foreign managers initiated more holistic infrastructures, but corruption, poorly connecting systems, and a lack of transparent management have ensured that these are under performing. In this book well-informed authors offer insights on Asia's political, educational and physical infrastructures, and indicate the routes leading to better integrated futures
