Азиатская модель управления. Удачи и провалы самого динамичного региона в мире

Автор: Джо Стадвелл

«Азиатская модель управления» — экономический бестселлер, написанный Джо Стадвеллом, главным редактором журнала China Economic Quarterly. Проработав журналистом в Азии более 20 лет, он прекрасно разбирается во всех тонкостях здешней экономики, что нашло отражение в его книгах «Китайская мечта» и «Крестные отцы Азии». Чем интересен именно азиатский опыт? Предлагаемая читателю книга должна помочь, с одной стороны, демистифицировать истоки «экономических чудес», а с другой стороны, продемонстрировать фактический опыт соседей, который может послужить уроком для реформирования российской экономики. Успешная модернизация Японии, Южной Кореи, Тайваня, а теперь и Китая следует примерно одинаковым рецептам, за которыми стоят весьма конкретные меры и набор идей. О них и рассказывается в книге, получившей широкое признание как среди специалистов, так и среди широкого круга читателей. К последним принадлежит и Билл Гейтс, включивший ее в число пяти книг, которые произвели на него самое сильное впечатление в 2014 году.

The Economics of Residential Solid Waste Disposal

Автор:

This study examines the patterns and determinants of solid waste disposal practices adopted by various households in Dar es Salaam city, Tanzania, using household budget survey data. The study uses a Multinomial Logit (MNL) model to examine the underlying determinants of choosing ways to dispose garbage, i.e., rubbish pit inside compound, rubbish pit outside compound, rubbish bin, thrown outside and other. The descriptive results reveal that about 35% of the respondents used rubbish bin, and approximately 24% were using throwing out option. This is against the use of rubbish pit outside compound, rubbish pit inside compound and other. Estimation results of a MNL suggest that household choices of these practices are determined by a certain combination of factors such as age, education and occupation of the household head, distance to the main road, home ownership, proportions of females and family members above 45 years, expenditure per adult equivalent and municipality location. This study provides useful insights into sustainable Solid Waste Management practices in Dar es Salaam city.

CROP ROTATION AND ECONOMIC SUSTAINABILITY OF AGRICULTURE

Автор:

Crop rotation is an innovative practice for agriculture sustainability. The study tries to make an empirical estimation of the economic sustainability of rotated farming vis-a-vis non rotated farming with respect to technical efficiency of farm output, returns to scale, productivity and profitability. The important types of rotations for the study are paddy-vegetable, paddy-banana, banana-vegetable, paddy-banana-vegetable and vegetable-vegetable. The empirical results show that the income per unit of land is very high among rotated farms. Farm productivity is closely related to the quantity and quality of the inputs particularly fertilizers, irrigation and pesticides used in cultivation. The value of Total Factor Productivity is high in rotated farms. The economic sustainability of the land enhances due to crop rotation.This book would be a good reference for academicians and researchers in the field of Economics, Agricultural Economics, ecology, environment science and related subjects to find an answer for sustainable growth in agriculture.

The Impact Of External Debt On Economic Growth In Cameroon

Автор:

It is important to seek new avenues through which sustainable economic growth and there-of economic development, will gain traction in sub-Saharan Africa. To achieve this, there is the need to un-think previous economic development models and embrasse similar actions the Asian nations were bold enough to impliment. Specifically, bold financial reforms which will re-inforce the capital and money markets, labour market reforms and a deep re-evaluation of our academic system can go a long way to improve growth. In the aftermath of the global financial crisis Sub-Saharan Africa was shielded from the systematic risk affecting mortgage assets, principlaly due to her low exposure to such underlying assets in her banking sector. However,the economic cooling the crisis impacted on the BRIC and G7 economies resulted in commodity prices taking a massive dent, thus severly slowing growth prospects in sub-Saharan Africa. Continuous risk evaluations and policy studies must be carried out, by both public and private sector regulatory authorities,so as to limit the exposure their decisions may have on the economy and more importantly ensure proactive decision making.

Political Corruption in Uganda and Neo-Patrimonialism

Автор:

This book presents findings of a research on “Understanding Uganda’s political Corruption from a neo-patrimonial perspective”. For the case of Uganda where the actual power rests on a deeply embedded patrimonial ideology, political corruption has become an essential means by which the National Resistance Movement (NRM) elites capture, retain and consolidate power hence corruption is steadily gaining acceptance as a way of life. The book attempts to look beyond “lack of political will” and analysed the interaction between personal relations (informal networks of patronage and social domination) and the formal framework of the central state to the in which political power is wielded by the ruling elites. This analysis will facilitate in understanding why political corruption in Uganda persists despite numerous efforts to fight it, the challenges and prospects of combating political corruption in Uganda, and the role international donors can play to reduce political corruption. Donors have also for many years been reluctant to use their substantial economic assistance and international diplomatic influence to press the government to confront corrupt state elites.

International Business Theory and International Economy

Автор:

The influence of the international business theory on the international economy is the subject of the analysis. It was emphasised that the trade liberalisation has a special positive significance in the global economy. While the motivations of developing countries to seek preferential trading links with industrialized nations have been convicingly laid out, or lock in policy reform, one can offer a new rationale linking positive political economy approaches to rational institutional design as why industrialized democratic states pursue their trade goals in non-multilateral forums. However it suggests that the multilateral trading system will need to adjust to developments in trade. The key of trade developments is especially the rise of global supply chains, the general shift of trade power away from the West and towards Asia. At the same time, it should be stressed that free trade in itself is not responsible for economic growth, but more significant are the determining macroeconomic stability and increasing investment. The book was written for academic, students and practic which interesting in the problems of change the contemporary international economy.
