The role of the state in economic change by Ha-Joon Chang( Book )
19 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and held by 303 libraries worldwide
The overall conclusion of the empirical and theoretical analysis is that the simplistic notion of politics fundamental to Neo-Liberal arguments makes them at best misleading and at worst deceitful. Although one can talk of certain general principles, there is no hard and fast rule to determine the optimal degree and the desirable areas of state intervention, which can only be determined in the concrete historical, institutional, and geographical context. The challenge is to form a new synthesis in which the valid insights of Neo-Liberalism are stripped of their ideological baggage and integrated into a wider and more objective intellectual framework

Deindustrialization : its causes and implications by Bob Rowthorn( Book )
17 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 162 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

Industrialization of China and India : their impacts on the world economy by Nobuharu Yokokawa( Book )

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 )
10 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 32 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 27 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)
Growth, trade, and deindustrialization by Bob Rowthorn( Book )
9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 27 libraries worldwide
The share of manufacturing employment has declined continuously for more than two decades in most advanced economies--a phenomenon that is referred to as deindustrialization. For instance, in the group of countries that are classified as "industrial countries" in the IMF's World Economic Outlook, the share of manufacturing employment declined from about 28 percent in 1970 to about 18 percent in 1994. The main issues of debate regarding deindustrialization are whether the secular decline in the share of manufacturing employment ought to be viewed with concern, and the extent to which this decline is caused by factors which are internal to the advanced economies, as opposed to external factors in the form of expanding economic linkages with the developing countries. This paper shows that deindustrialization is explained primarily by trends internal to the advanced economies. These include the combined effects on manufacturing employment of a relatively faster growth of productivity in manufacturing, the associated relative price changes, and shifts in the structure of demand between manufactures and services. North-South trade explains less than one fifth of deindustrialization in the advanced economies. Moreover, the contribution of North-South trade to deindustrialization has been mainly through its effects in stimulating labor productivity in Northern manufacturing. It has had little enduring effect on total manufacturing output in the advanced economies
Centralized bargaining, efficiency wages, and flexibility by Ramana Ramaswamy( Book )
8 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
