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 )
11 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 35 libraries worldwide
All advanced economies have experienced a secular decline in the share of manufacturing employment?a phenomenon referred to as deindustrialization. This paper argues that, contrary to popular perceptions, deindustrialization is not a negative phenomenon, but is the natural consequence of the industrial dynamism in an already developed economy, and that North-South trade has had very little to do with deindustrialization. The paper also discusses the implications of deindustrialization for the growth prospects and the nature of labor market arrangements in the advanced economies

Unemployment, capital-labor substitution, and economic growth by Bob Rowthorn( Book )
7 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 30 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)
Centralized bargaining, efficiency wages, and flexibility by Ramana Ramaswamy( Book )
8 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 26 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
