Economic crises and policy regimes : the dynamics of policy innovation and paradigmatic change by Hideko Magara( Book )

12 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this innovative book, Hideko Magara brings together an expert team to explore both the possibilities and difficulties of transitioning from a neoliberal policy regime to an alternative regime through drastic policy innovations. The authors argue that, for more than two decades, citizens in developed countries have witnessed massive job losses, lowered wages, slow economic growth and widening inequality under a neoliberal policy regime that has placed heavy constraints on policy choices. The book explores, both theoretically and empirically, the possibility of transition to a new political economic paradigm by seeking feasible answers to questions such as: why has such a regime persisted for a long period of time despite its poor policy performance?; is it possible for democracy to overcome economic crisis through its electoral mechanisms?; and, under what conditions can each government convert crisis of its economy into growth? The book concludes that under different policy regimes, whether Keynesian or neoliberal, there are a variety of growth regimes, and economic performances will consequently vary considerably. The authors ultimately argue that policy innovations need not only political leadership but also the very creation of a new economic theory in order to break a critical juncture of economic stalemates. Economic Crises and Policy Regimes will appeal to policy makers and practitioners internationally and is an important resource for political scientists, economists and sociologists. Advanced students of comparative politics, comparative political economy and institutional economics will also find much to benefit them in this book
The politics of structural reforms : social and industrial policy change in Italy and Japan by Hideko Magara( Book )

14 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For countries undertaking economic or political reform the case of Italy and Japan is both highly instructive and sobering. The Politics of Structural Reforms reveals what Italy and Japan gained and lost through a series of social and industrial reforms in the 1990s and 2000s, and why the changes they made in their policies have had little impact in softening the recent economic crisis. Italy and Japan achieved miraculous economic growth in the postwar period. While their financial and manufacturing sectors cooperated in achieving international competitiveness, their political systems grew alike. The weaknesses of both economic and political compacts became apparent at the beginning of the 1990s, when the two countries were caught in an economic slump and fell into a stalemate that lasts to the current day. Since the early 1990's they have undergone a series of structural reforms, and momentous changes in their political systems. Through a detailed comparative analysis of the reforms of both countries in areas such as corporate governance, the labour market, social policy, and in their electoral systems the authors explain why these reforms have not resulted in economic and political success This innovative volume will be an excellent resource for political scientists specialized in political economy and industrial relations, labour economists and sociologists as well as policy practitioners and corporate governance specialists. Moreover, it is an enjoyable and informative read for all scholars and those interested in social and political reform"--Provided by publisher

Policy stability affects a series of other key characteristics of polities, argues the author. For example, it leads to high judicial and bureaucratic independence, as well as high government instability (in parliamentary systems). The propositions derived from the theoretical framework Tsebelis develops in the first part of the book are tested in the second part with various data sets from advanced industrialized countries, as well as analysis of legislation in the European Union

Veto players : how political institutions work by George Tsebelis( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in Japanese and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Policy stability affects a series of other key characteristics of politics, argues the author. For example, it leads to high judicial and bureaucratic independence, as well as high government instability (in parliamentary systems). The propositions derived from the theoretical framework Tsebelis develops in the first part of the book are tested in the second part with various data sets from advanced industrialized countries, as well as analysis of legislation in the European Union. Representing the first consistent and consequential theory of comparative politics, Veto Players will be welcomed by students and scholars as a defining text of the discipline."--Jacket
