Banks, finance and investments in Germany by J. S. S Edwards( file )
10 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 1,609 libraries worldwide
This book analyses the widely-held view of the merits of the 'bank-based' German system of finance for investment, and shows that this view is not supported by evidence from the post-war period. The institutional features of the German system are such that universal banks have control of voting rights at shareholders' meetings due to proxy votes, and they also have representation on companies' supervisory boards. These features are claimed to have two main benefits. One is that the German system reduces asymmetric information problems, enabling banks to supply more external finance to firms at a lower cost, and thus increasing investment. The other is that German banks are able to mould and control managements of firms on behalf of shareholders, and thus ensure that firms are run efficiently. This book assesses whether empirical evidence backs up these claims, and shows that the merits of the German system are largely myths

European migration : what do we know? by Centre for Economic Policy Research (Great Britain)( file )
8 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 1,286 libraries worldwide
"This book brings together in-depth analyses of migration issues in major European countries, and compares evidence with more countries that have traditionally seen the most immigration. First, it studies migration streams since World War II, and reviews major migration policy regimes. Second, it summarizes the empirical evidence measuring wages, unemployment, and occupational choices. Third, it investigates how migrants affect the labour markets of their host countries, and evaluates econometric studies into the wage and employment consequences of immigration." "This important work is an invaluable resource for academic labour economists, geographers, and sociologists, as well as policy makers concerned with immigration."--Jacket
Turkey : economic reform and accession to the European Union by Bernard M Hoekman( file )
11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,069 libraries worldwide
"This volume analyzes the economic challenges confronting Turkey in its quest to accede to the European Union (EU). It focuses on the extent to which Turkey is ready to join the Single Market; comply with the EU's body of economic regulations and directives, the Acquis Communautaire; and meet the Maastricht criteria for fiscal, monetary, and exchange rate policies. This book also provides an assessment of Turkey's national program to meet the accession requirements. It describes briefly what Turkey needs to achieve on the economic policy front to satisfy the conditions for accession, the progress to date, and the likely consequences of implementing the full body of EU requirements."

The European monetary system by Banca d'Italia( Book )
15 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and French and held by 536 libraries worldwide
The European Monetary System (EMS) has, since its inception in 1979, provided a fascinating example of policy co-ordination in practice. As concern about exchange-rate instability and global economic imbalances has grown, both academic researchers and policy-makers have looked to the EMS for lessons about co-operation on a wider scale. This volume contains the papers and proceedings of an October 1987 conference organised by the Centre for Economic Policy Research in co-operation with the Banca d'Italia and the Centro Interuniversitario di Studi Teorici per la Politica Economica (STEP). The conference brought together distinguished academics and practitioners from eleven European central banks. The papers offer a timely summary of current research, while the concluding panel discussion provides a valuable perspective on the concerns of policy-makers. This will be the definitive publication on the EMS for some years to come, and hence a basic reference for anyone interested in the international monetary system and policy co-ordination
The economics of organised crime ( Book )
9 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 525 libraries worldwide
This is the first book to use economic theory in the analysis of all the different aspects of organised crime: the origins, the internal organisation, market behaviour and deterrence policies. The theory of rent-seeking is adopted to help understand the origin of criminal organisations from a state of anarchy, while modern industrial organisation theory is used to explain the design of internal rules in the organised crime sector. The market behaviour of organised crime is analysed taking into account its double nature of competitive firm and of monopolist on rule-making. Finally, the 'crime and economics' approach is applied to the analysis of corruption that occurs when the organised crime sector and the government collude to exploit their monopoly on rule-making. This book provides a careful balance between theoretical and institutional or empirical contributions. Each chapter outlines the normative results of the analysis in order to design more sophisticated deterrence policies
International economic policy coordination by Willem H Buiter( Book )
4 editions published between 1984 and 1986 in English and held by 464 libraries worldwide
European financial integration by Centre for Economic Policy Research (Great Britain)( Book )
7 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 427 libraries worldwide
Capital markets are affected at least as much as goods markets by the European Community's drive for greater economic integration. The removal of capital controls on 1 July 1990 has far-reaching consequences for the EMS and for cross-border investment, and plans for economic and monetary union foreshadow fundamental upheavals at the heart of the financial system, in central banking and monetary and fiscal policy. This volume reports the proceedings of a conference on European financial integration held in Rome in January 1990, which was organised by the Centre for Economic Policy Research and the Instituto Mobiliare Italiano. In this volume, leading international experts examine the implications of integration for the structure and regulation of capital markets, the changing relationships between the corporate and banking sectors throughout the Community, the distortionary effects of differing taxation policies among member states and possible means of overcoming them, and alternative routes to European monetary union

Establishing a central bank : issues in Europe and lessons from the US by Matthew B Canzoneri( Book )
7 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 384 libraries worldwide
Previous efforts to create a European Central Bank (ECB) have stimulated debate on topics for research into the political economy of the European Community's institutions. These include the exact division of responsibilities of national governments and the ECB - especially concerning exchange rate policy; the need for and design of constraints on national fiscal policies; and the nature of the transition from adjustable parities and national monetary policies to irrevocably fixed parities and a single European monetary policy. The book also considers the implications of EMU for the international monetary system - for the use of the ECU as a reserve currency and for policy coordination among the G-7 countries. The volume thus provides a comprehensive examination of the issues that will be decisive for Europe in its choice of monetary institutions

Economic policy and technological performance by Partha Dasgupta( Book )
6 editions published between 1987 and 2005 in English and held by 353 libraries worldwide
A growing awareness of the contribution that technological change has made and can make to economic and social welfare has brought science and technology policy to the forefront of public discussions in both national and international forums. The papers in this volume, first presented at a Centre for Economic Policy Research conference held in London in September 1986 on the Economics of Technology Policy, represent a wide ranging contribution to the debate. Generally aimed at the non-specialist, the papers cover both the experience and application of policy as well as providing in-depth discussions of the rationale for intervention in the process of technological change. The authors include both policy-makers (Barber, Ergas and White) and the academic economists (Dasgupta, David, Griliches, Lyons, Pakes, Stiglitz and Stoneman). The volume will be of particular interest to policy-makers and their advisers concerned with technology-related issues and will contribute significantly to undergraduate and graduate courses in the same area
Banking union for Europe : risks and challenges by Viral V Acharya( file )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 346 libraries worldwide
While a banking union for Europe has been discussed by economists since even before the 2007 crisis, the issue has now moved up to the top of the eurozone agenda. But what kind of banking union? For whom? Financed how? And managed by whom? These questions are explored in a new Vox eBook comprisings 15 papers on the topic by leading economists from both sides of the Atlantic. CEPS Director Daniel Gros contributed a chapter entitled "The Single European Market in Banking in decline--ECB to the rescue?" The book edited by Thorsten Beck, Professor of Economics and Chairman of the European Banking Center at Tilburg University, and published by VoxEU
Hungary : an economy in transition by István P Székely( Book )
7 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and held by 346 libraries worldwide
"Hungary's unique 'gradualist' economic transformation has now reached a critical stage. Despite recent upheavals, Hungary has succeeded in attracting foreign capital, and has achieved its first current account surplus in convertible currency since 1984, but it is clear that privatisation will be a lengthy and difficult process, with significant repercussions for the future of the economy and profound social and welfare consequences."--BOOK JACKET. "This book presents some of the local arguments and perceptions informing the current debate, and critical examinations of these ideas from an international panel of scholars. The chapters address privatisation; financial, tax and legal systems; integration into the international financial and monetary systems; labour markets, unemployment and the social safety net; and the political economy of the current economic transformation. The analysis and results will be of major interest to economists and policy-makers concerned with transition throughout Eastern Europe."--BOOK JACKET
Unity with diversity in the European economy : the Community's southern frontier ( Book )
7 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in English and held by 345 libraries worldwide
The enlargement that encompassed the accession of Greece in 1981 and of Spain and Portugal in 1986 significantly altered the balance of the European Community (EC), while the double shock of EC membership and 1992 could have driven the economies of the new members into depression or, equally, accelerate their modernisation. This important book from the Centre for Economic Policy Research examines theoretical issues in the integration of a diverse economic region and the combined impact of EC membership, financial integration and the single market programme on the joining countries. There is an introduction by the editors and a foreword by Michael Emerson and Richard Portes
