The financial crisis that began in 2008 and its lingering aftermath have caused many intellectuals and politicians to question the virtues of capitalist systems. The 19 original essays in this handbook, written by leading scholars from Asia, North America, and Europe, analyze both the strengths and weaknesses of capitalist systems. The volume opens with essays on the historical and legal origins of capitalism. These are followed by chapters describing the nature, institutions, and advantages of capitalism: entrepreneurship, innovation, property rights, contracts, capital markets, and the modern corporation. The next set of chapters discusses the problems that can arise in capitalist systems including monopoly, principal agent problems, financial bubbles, excessive managerial compensation, and empire building through wealth-destroying mergers. Two subsequent essays examine in detail the properties of the "Asian model" of capitalism as exemplified by Japan and South Korea, and capitalist systems where ownership and control are largely separated as in the United States and United Kingdom. The handbook concludes with an essay on capitalism in the 21st century by Nobel Prize winner Edmund Phelps.

Mit diesem Buch erhalten Sie das E-Book inklusive! Ein Buch, das die Börse zum Beben bringt Michael Lewis, begnadeter Sachbuchautor, lüftet mit seinem neuen Buch "das dunkelste Geheimnis der Börse". Wer an Börse denkt, hat oft ein Bild im Kopf: wild gestikulierende Makler, die unter immensem Zeitdruck Dinge kaufen, um sie gleich wieder zu verkaufen. Doch das ist Geschichte. Die Realität an der Börse sieht anders aus - das Parkett hat längst neue Regeln. Michael Lewis, Wirtschaftsjournalist und begnadeter Sachbuchautor, sorgte mit seinem neuen Buch für ein Erdbeben. Der Erzähler unter den Sachbuchautoren enthüllt die Geschichte einer Gruppe genialer Wall-Street-Außenseiter. Sie haben herausgefunden, wie die Börse zum Vorteil von Insidern manipuliert wird, die ohne Risiko Milliarden absahnen und abends ohne eine einzige Aktie nach Hause gehen. Ein Buch über die neuen "Helden" an der Börse Der Entschluss der "Helden": Sie schaffen ein paralleles System, das sich den raffgierigen "Flash Boys" in den Weg stellt. Lewis bringt Licht in die dunkelste Ecke der Börse. Seine filmreife Geschichte über den Kampf um Geschwindigkeit - auf einem Markt, den zwar keiner sieht, der unsere Wirtschaft aber ernsthaft bedroht - bringt die Wall Street zum Beben. Dieses Buch lässt die Börsenwelt erzittern. Einen Tag nach seinem Erscheinen kündigten FBI und amerikanisches Justizministerium an, sie würden Untersuchungen gegen den von Lewis gegeißelten Hochfrequenzhandel an den Börsen einleiten. Lewis ... - "... hat eine neue Ebene der Aufmerksamkeit erreicht". (FAZ) - ... lässt den "The Wolf of Wall Street" wie ein Lamm wirken. - ... ist der derzeit packendste (Reality-)Thriller über die Finanzwelt gelungen. - ... enthüllt, wie Märkte und Privatanleger manipuliert werden.

The Oxford Handbook of Employment Relations

Author: Adrian Wilkinson,Geoffrey Wood,Richard Deeg

ISBN: 0191651494

Category: Business & Economics

Page: 760

View: 5558

There have been numerous accounts exploring the relationship between institutions and firm practices. However, much of this literature tends to be located into distinct theoretical-traditional 'silos', such as national business systems, social systems of production, regulation theory, or varieties of capitalism, with limited dialogue between different approaches to enhance understanding of institutional effects. Again, evaluations of the relationship between institutions and employment relations have tended to be of the broad-brushstroke nature, often founded on macro-data, and with only limited attention being accorded to internal diversity and details of actual practice. The Handbook aims to fill this gap by bringing together an assembly of comprehensive and high quality chapters to enable understanding of changes in employment relations since the early 1970s. Theoretically-based chapters attempt to link varieties of capitalism, business systems, and different modes of regulation to the specific practice of employment relations, and offer a truly comparative treatment of the subject, providing frameworks and empirical evidence for understanding trends in employment relations in different parts of the world. Most notably, the Handbook seeks to incorporate at a theoretical level regulationist accounts and recent work that link bounded internal systemic diversity with change, and, at an applied level, a greater emphasis on recent applied evidence, specifically dealing with the employment contract, its implementation, and related questions of work organization. It will be useful to academics and students of industrial relations, political economy, and management.

The financial crisis of 2008 aroused widespread interest in banking and financial history among policy makers, academics, journalists, and even bankers, in addition to the wider public. References in the press to the term 'Great Depression' spiked after the failure of Lehman Brothers in November 2008, with similar surges in references to 'economic history' at various times during the financial turbulence. In an attempt to better understand the magnitude of the shock, there was a demand for historical parallels. How severe was the financial crash? Was it, in fact, the most severe financial crisis since the Great Depression? Were its causes unique or part of a well-known historical pattern? And have financial crises always led to severe depressions? Historical reflection on the recent financial crises and the long-term development of the financial system go hand in hand. This volume provides the material for such a reflection by presenting the state of the art in banking and financial history. Nineteen highly regarded experts present chapters on the economic and financial side of banking and financial activities, primarily though not solely in advanced economies, in a long-term comparative perspective. In addition to paying attention to general issues, not least those related to theoretical and methodological aspects of the discipline, the volume approaches the banking and financial world from four distinct but interrelated angles: financial institutions, financial markets, financial regulation, and financial crises.

Macroeconomic research on human capital - the stock of human capabilities and knowledge - has been extensively published but to date the literature has lacked a comprehensive analysis of human capital within the organization. The Oxford Handbook of Human Capital has been designed to fill that gap, providing an authoritative, inter-disciplinary, and up to date survey of relevant concepts, research areas, and applications. Specially commissioned contributions from over 40 authors reveal the importance of human capital for contemporary organizations, exploring its conceptual underpinnings, relevance to theories of the firm, implications for organizational effectiveness, interdependencies with other resources, and role in the future economy. Unlike neoclassical macroeconomic concepts of human capital, human capital in organizations is shown to be dynamic and heterogeneous, requiring new theories and management frameworks. The systemic role of human capital is explored, revealing it as the lynchpin of social, structural and other forms of intangible and tangible capital. Connections between human capital and organizational performance are investigated from HR management, procurement, alignment, value appropriation, and accounting perspectives. Links between micro and macro perspectives are provided through analyses of inter firm human capital mobility, national and regional human capital formation regimes and industry employment relations practices. This Handbook is designed for scholars and graduate students of organization and management theory, strategy, entrepreneurship, knowledge and intellectual capital, accounting, IT, HR, IR, economic sociology and cultural studies. For policy makers and practitioners it should provide an up to date guide to the nature and role of human capital in contemporary organizations and the roles that government, industry and other extra firm institutions can play in facilitating its development.
