Deindustrialization : its causes and implications by Bob Rowthorn( Book )
16 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 164 libraries worldwide
This paper maintains that deindustrialization is primarily a feature of successful economic development and that North-South trade has very little to do with it. Over the past 25 years, the share of employment accounted for by manufacturing has fallen dramatically in the world's most advanced economies, a phenomenon widely referred to as "deindustrialization."Many see deindustrialization as widening income inequalities and causing a sharp rise in unemployment. This paper argues that, contrary to popular perception, deindustrialization should not be regarded as alarming, but rather as a natural consequence of continued economic growth within the advanced economies
Democracy and efficiency in the economic enterprise by Ugo Pagano( Book )
16 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in English and held by 163 libraries worldwide

This book provides new perspectives on recent Asian dynamism which go beyond the mainstream views, by attempting to situate the recent economic expansion within a broader analysis of capitalist accumulation and the various processes that it generates both within and across economies. The contributions in the book include analyses of recent growth patterns in both China and India; assessments of the sustainability of such growth and potential constraints and pitfalls; the role of international finance in affecting both national and international growth and employment patterns

Deindustrialization : causes and implications by Bob Rowthorn( Book )
8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 32 libraries worldwide
Three broad developments have caused concern in the advanced economies in recent years: (i) the shrinking share of manufacturing employment; (ii) the stagnation of average real wages and the rise in inequality of earnings since 1973 in the United States; and (iii) the massive rise in unemployment since the early 1970s in much of Europe.2 These developments have coincided with what is commonly perceived to have been a period of unusually rapid growth in trade and capital movements-particularly between the advanced and developing countries. The coexistence of these phenomena has tended to foster the perception of a causal link from "globalization" to the labor market problems confronting the advanced economies. The main focus of this paper is on the causes of the long-term decline in the share of manufacturing employment in the advanced economies-a phenomenon referred to as "deindustrialization." It is, however, useful in this context to review briefly the debate on the inter-relationships among globalization, earnings inequality and unemployment, before moving on to the issue of deindustrialization

Annotation
Unemployment, capital-labor substitution, and economic growth by Bob Rowthorn( Book )
6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 26 libraries worldwide
The current analysis of unemployment in Europe is based on what used to be called the "conflict" theory of inflation, renamed by Blanchard (1986) the "battle of the mark-ups". The origins of this theory go back at least to Rowthorn (1977) and probably earlier. Indeed, a version of this theory is implicit in the work of Friedman (1968) and Lucas and Rapping (1969)
De-industrialization and the balance of payments in advanced economies by Bob Rowthorn( Book )
8 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 26 libraries worldwide
Centralized bargaining, efficiency wages, and flexibility by Ramana Ramaswamy( Book )
7 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 25 libraries worldwide
The main focus of the "wage bargaining" literature has been on the factors promoting real wage flexibility at the macro level. This paper, in contrast, examines the microeconomic issues of wage bargaining. More specifically, this paper appraises the following questions: (a) what are the conditions under which a firm prefers decentralized to centralized bargaining?, (b) what are the characteristic features of firms which prefer decentralized to centralized bargaining?, and (c) has the propotion of firms which prefer decentralized bargaining increased over time? These questions are examined in an efficiency wage model with insider-outsider features. This paper provides useful theoretical insights for understanding the issues involved in shifting from centralized to decentralized wage bargaining
