Most widely held works by Herman M Schwartz
States versus markets : the emergence of a global economy by Herman M Schwartz( Book )
33 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 646 libraries worldwide
"Drawing on a broad-ranging reassessment of the historical and spatial evolution of the world economy, Herman Schwartz shows how the twenty-first-century world has come to resemble the late nineteenth century, in which markets typically overwhelmed state policies, more than the mid-twentieth century, in which states were often able to control or contain markets. In so doing he shows that globalization is a much longer-term and more multi-faceted phenomenon than its current protagonists generally argue and provides a particularly clear account of the complex interdependence of modern states and modern markets."
Subprime nation : American power, global capital, and the housing bubble by Herman M Schwartz( Book )
11 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 498 libraries worldwide
In his exceedingly timely and innovative look at the ramifications of the collapse of the U.S. housing market, Herman M. Schwartz makes the case that worldwide, U.S. growth and power over the last twenty years has depended in large part on domestic housing markets. Mortgage-based securities attracted a cascade of overseas capital into the U.S. economy. High levels of private home ownership, particularly in the United States and the United Kingdom, have helped pull in a disproportionately large share of world capital flows.As events since mid-2008 have made clear, mortgage lenders became ever more eager to extend housing loans, for the more mortgage packages they securitized, the higher their profits. As a result, they were dangerously inventive in creating new mortgage products, notably adjustable-rate and subprime mortgages, to attract new, mainly first-time, buyers into the housing market. However, mortgage-based instruments work only when confidence in the mortgage system is maintained. Regulatory failures in the American S&L sector, the accounting crisis that led to the extinction of Arthur Andersen, and the subprime crisis that destroyed Lehman Brothers and Merrill Lynch and damaged many other big financial institutions have jeopardized a significant engine of economic growth.Schwartz concentrates on the impact of U.S. regulatory failure on the international economy. He argues that the "local" problem of the housing crisis carries substantial and ongoing risks for U.S. economic health, the continuing primacy of the U.S. dollar in international financial circles, and U.S. hegemony in the world system
In the dominions of debt : historical perspectives on dependent development by Herman M Schwartz( Book )
11 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 468 libraries worldwide
States versus markets : history, geography, and the development of the international political economy by Herman M Schwartz( Book )
10 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 414 libraries worldwide
"States versus Markets focuses on the struggles of states as they deal with changing world markets and try to influence the international political economy in ways that serve their own interests. Professor Schwartz argues that the stability and successful state intervention in markets that characterized the post-World War II period were not normal, but were in fact a dramatic departure from the typical processes of the global economy. He points out that the current global economy increasingly resembles that of the nineteenth century, when market pressures tended to overwhelm state policies."--Jacket

Foreign debt and dependent development in the dominions, 1890-1914. (volumes I and II) (Australia, New Zealand, Argentina) by Herman M Schwartz( Book )
1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The studies show our model of dominion politics does explain political struggles in these cases. Case studies of the US (1789-1860) and South Korea (1945-1986), which respectively are examples of movement from dominion to core, and from integrated periphery to dominion, demonstrate the plausibility and utility of disaggregation, as well as the applicability of the model to other historical periods. The conclusions show that dependency typically generates struggles among foreign, domestically controlled but exporting, and domestically owned and marketing capitals, while development emerges from struggles among capitalists and workers
