Relevant societal actors include large industrial capital, small industrial capital, commercial capital, and financial capital.

The Changing Politics Of Finance In Korea And Thailand

by Xiaoke Zhang, The Changing Politics Of Finance In Korea And Thailand Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Changing Politics Of Finance In Korea And Thailand books, This is the first systematic attempt to explore the causal relationship between financial market reform and financial crisis in an interdisciplinary and comparative perspective. It examines the political underpinnings of financial policy-change and provides an in-depth analysis of market liberalisation processes and their impact on the economic turmoil of 1997-98 in Korea and Thailand. The common crisis stemmed from divergent reform patterns and originated from dissimilar institutional deficiencies and political constraints. The book will be essential reading for both policy-makers and academics concerned with national governance in an era of globalisation.

The Politics Of Equity Finance In Emerging Markets

by Department of Political Science Case Western Reserve University Kathryn C. Lavelle Professor, The Politics Of Equity Finance In Emerging Markets Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Politics Of Equity Finance In Emerging Markets books, Emerging market stock issuance relative to GDP rose in the late twentieth century to levels that roughly matched that of advanced, industrial markets. Nonetheless, the connection between owning shares of emerging market stock and the ability to influence the management of these firms remains fundamentally different from the analogous institutional connection that has evolved in industrial markets. The reasons for the differences in emerging markets are both historical and political in nature. That is, local equity markets have had the objective of providing for some degree of local ownership and control of large economic entities since the late nineteenth century. However, local markets have operated under different global political structures since that time, ranging from imperialism, to world wars, to sovereign developmental states, to neo-liberal states. Shares issued under these different structures have been reconfigured over time, resulting in a lack of convergence along either the Anglo-American or Continental models of corporate governance. The author uses a political science paradigm to explain the growth of emerging equity markets. She departs from conventional economic explanations and examines politics at the micro-level of large issues of emerging market stock. The second half of the book presents case studies dealing with emerging market countries in Latin America, Asia, Russia and Eastern Europe, Africa and the Middle East. The case studies connect the regional, state, and firm levels to detail the multiple ownership and control arrangements, and to dispel the notion that mere quantitative growth of these markets will lead to a convergence in financial institutional structures along the lines of the industrial core of the world economy.

Business And The State In Developing Countries

by Sylvia Maxfield, Business And The State In Developing Countries Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Business And The State In Developing Countries books, Much of the debate about development in the past decade pitted proponents of unfettered markets against advocates of developmental states. Yet, in many developing countries what best explains variations in economic performance is not markets or states but rather the character of relations between business and government. The studies in Business and the State in Developing Countries identify a range of close, collaborative relations between bureaucrats and capitalists that enhance elements of economic performance and defy conventional expectations that such relations lead ineluctably to rent-seeking, corruption, and collusion. All based on extensive field research, the essays contrast collaborative and collusive relations in a wide range of developing countries, mostly in Latin America and Asia, and isolate the conditions under which collaboration is most likely to emerge and survive. The contributors highlight the crucial roles played by capable bureaucracies and strong business associations.

The Politics Of Economic Inequality In Developing Countries

by Philip Nel, The Politics Of Economic Inequality In Developing Countries Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Politics Of Economic Inequality In Developing Countries books, "Compared to third world poverty (absolute deprivation), economic inequality (relative deprivation) in developing countries has received little attention. In this book, Philip Nel shows that economic inequality has great significance for the achievement of economic, political and human development in developing countries. He argues that a high level of inequality undermines a country's growth potential, retards the development of social capital and trust, encourages corruption and conflict, and jeopardizes the opportunities for consistent regime development. As inequality continues to worsen in most parts of the developing world, this book provides a timely study on its causes and consequences."--Book cover.
