            Broadly viewing the global economy as a political competition that produces winners and losers, International Political Economy holistically and accessibly introduces the field of IPE to students with limited background in political theory, history, and economics. This text surve...ys major interests and institutions and examines how state and non-state actors pursue wealth and power. Emphasizing fundamental economic concepts as well as the interplay between domestic and international politics, International Political Economy not only explains how the global economy works; it also encourages students to think critically about how economic policy is made in the context of globalization. New to the 6th Edition Covers economic impacts of 2016 electoral events including new Trump administration initiatives related to TPP and NAFTA; UK and Brexit, and the European populist wave. Examines the global financial crisis, EU debt crisis, capital inflows, and development failures. Probes the death of the Doha Round and explores individual trade preferences, WTO dispute settlement, and other trade-related policies and proposals. Considers the question of the Chinese Renminbi as a global currency to displace the dollar.

            The Geographies of Alternative Economies: Beyond Greening

            The Geographies of Alternative Economies: Beyond Greening (Hardback)

            By Schulz, Christian; Affolderbach, Julia; Krueger, Robert

            Debates around the capacity of and limits to the current capitalist mode of production have led many to reconceptualise economic models and rethink how development occurs in practice. One widely promoted strategy within these debates is the `green economy'. The idea of a green ec...onomy is not new. The concept of ecological modernization, for example, has driven `green' development such as eco-industrial parks, green clusters, carbon finance and clean-technologies. In examples like this, the green economy is often reduced to financial and technological fixes through the diffusion, adoption, and mainstreaming of green innovations and technologies or to new green products, services, and markets in order to maintain the growth imperative of the capitalist system. This book highlights the limitations of traditional economic models and charts a new course for current policies and practices. It draws upon and synthesizes examples from existing alternative economies (e.g., different forms of dematerialization, hybrid organizations, solidarity economy, sharing economy). The book not only argues that we need to break free from current paradigms of greening, but expands our thinking to encompass new, alternative, and socially just conceptions of economy and economic development. A particular emphasis is laid on the spatial implications of de-growth oriented activities which partly challenge existing models and research methods in economic geography. As such, the book makes a significant contribution to the literature on ecological economics, economic geography and degrowth.

            International Public Policy Analysis

            International Public Policy Analysis (Hardback)

            • RRP: $365.00
            • $365.00
            • In Stock At Publisher

            Most public policy analysis books currently on the market are US-centric and focused on quantitative analysis, while comparative public policy textbooks are oriented around countries and specific policy processes. International Public Policy Analysis is the first textbook to take... a truly comparative and cross-cultural approach, organized around policy issues, to examine important policy 'lessons' that affect the everyday lives of citizens. Authors George Guess and Thomas Husted demonstrate that incremental, marginal changes in sectoral policy systems using cross-national lessons can lead to larger changes in country policies, democracy, and better governance. While whole-systems policy transfer without major adaptation to local cultural and institutional contexts often does not work, many opportunities exist in each sector for operational-level piecemeal transfer of lessons and practices to improve policy performance. Jargon-free and using a cross-cultural approach, the individual chapters in this book utilize a 3-level analysis to review the policy issue areas, present analytic tools and frameworks, and provide cases/exercises for practice in applying the methods and frameworks. International Public Policy Analysis is an essential upper-level undergraduate and graduate textbook for courses on comparative public policy, policy process, political economy, and international policy analysis, and may also be used as required reading in introductory public affairs and policy courses at the graduate level.

            The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act signed by President Obama in March 2010 is a landmark in U.S. social legislation, and the Supreme Court's recent decision upholding the Act has ensured that it will remain the law of the land. The new law extends health insurance to ...nearly all Americans, fulfilling a century-long quest and bringing the United States to parity with other industrial nations. Affordable Care aims to control rapidly rising health care costs and promises to make the United States more equal, reversing four decades of rising disparities between the very rich and everyone else. Millions of people of modest means will gain new benefits and protections from insurance company abuses - and the tab will be paid by privileged corporations and the very rich.
