A globe-spanning group of leading law and finance scholars bring together cutting-edge research to comprehensively examine the challenges legislators face in regulating related party transactions in a socially beneficial way. Combining theoretical analysis of the foundations of efficient regulation with empirical and comparative studies, readers are invited to draw their own conclusions on which regulatory responses work best under differing circumstances. The careful selection of surveyed jurisdictions offers in-depth insight into a broad variety of regulatory strategies and their interdependence with socioeconomic and political conditions. This work should be read by scholars, policymakers, and graduate students interested in a critical, much-debated area of corporate governance.
An Economist Best Book of the Year A Financial Times Best Economics Book of the Year A Fast Company 7 Books Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella Says You Need To Lead Smarter Selection The nature of globalization has changed but our thinking about globalization has not. The renowned economist Richard Baldwin argues that the New Globalization is driven by knowledge crossing borders, not just goods. This is why its impact is more sudden, more individual, more unpredictable, and more uncontrollable than before-all of which presents developed nations with unprecedented challenges as they struggle to maintain reliable growth and social cohesion. It is also the driving force behind what Baldwin calls The Great Convergence, as Asian economies in particular catch up with the West. In this brilliant book, Baldwin has succeeded in saying something both new and true about globalization. -Martin Wolf, Financial Times A very powerful description of the newest phase of globalization. -Larry Summers, former Secretary of the U.S. Treasury An essential book for understanding how modern trade works via global supply chains. An antidote to the protectionist nonsense being peddled by some politicians today. -The Economist
That some cities are vibrant while others are in decline is starkly apparent. In The Wealth and Poverty of Cities, Mario Polese argues that focusing on city attributes is too narrow. Cities do not control the basic conditions that determine their success or failure as sources of economic growth and well-being. Nations matter because successful metropolitan economies do not spring forth spontaneously. The values, norms, and institutions that shape social relationships are national attributes. The preconditions for the creation of wealth-the rule of law, public education, and sound macroeconomic management among the most fundamental-are the responsibility of the state. By considering national fiscal and monetary policies and state policies governing the organization of cities, this book disentangles two processes: the mechanics of creating wealth and the mechanics of agglomeration or capturing wealth. Polese explains the two-stage process in which the proper conditions must first be in place for the benefits of agglomeration to fully flower. Polese interweaves evocative descriptions of various cities, contrasting cities that have been helped or hurt by local and national policies wise or ill-advised. From New York to Vienna, Buenos Aires to Port au Prince, the cities come to life. Throughout the book Polese highlights four factors that help explain strengths and weaknesses of cities as foci of economic opportunity and social cohesion: institutions, people, centrality, and chance. The result is a nuanced and accessible introduction to the economy of cities and an original perspective on what needs to improve. Cities that have managed to produce livable urban environments for the majority of their citizens mirror the societies that spawned them. Similarly, cities that have failed are almost always signs of more deep-rooted failures. If the nation does not work, neither will its cities.
Most practitioners and decision makers look at corporate social responsibility (CSR) as a socially responsible management practice on top of what company leaders normally do: focus on the sustainable, long term financial profitability of their corporation. This book focuses on a political understanding of CSR: the author bridges politics corporate social responsibility and in a creative and provocative manner. Braun seeks to explore why and how corporations are to be seen as political entities with important roles in our current societies. The first part discusses the social context, the various stakeholder approaches and it also endeavors - with the help of the historic/political parallel of the bourgeois revolutions in the 19th century - to define the corporate polity. The second part analyses the new kind of operational logic from the viewpoint of the different areas of corporate operation; it gives an overview of the consequences for the individual areas of operation and indicates how corporate policy can be realized in the given field of operation. The third part of the book introduces the institutions necessary for the creation of the corporate polity.
