Regional and Inter-regional Financial Integration
70,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The first Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) Summit in 1996 has provided the principal multilateral platform for interregional cooperation between the European and Asian countries. This book examines the equity market integration among 49 ASEM members both in EU and Asia, and to investigate whether such integration has changed after the Asian financial crisis in 1997-99 and the introduction of euro. This book contributes by applying co-integration techniques, within which correlation matrix and variance decomposition are used for daily equity indices, returns and volatilities among ASEM markets from January 1985 till December 2012, in order to test the degree of dependencies among equity markets. This book also covers theoretical background of financial integration, and presents an empirical study on regional integration by testing ASEM EU and ASEM Asia integration as a prerequisite for interregional integration of ASEM. Although a lot of research has been focused on equity market integration, the emphasis has mostly been on regional rather than interregional. This study concludes that these markets presented a moderate degree of integration before Asian crisis.

34,90 € *

This book examines the integration of major trade unions from the six biggest countries of EU`s Eastern enlargement into EU governance structures. Based on extensive empirical research, including more than 150 in-depth interviews, statistical data collection, document research, and eight detailed case studies, the contributions describe the activities and perceptions of the trade unions under investigation and the different levels of engagement, including European umbrella organizations, interregional cooperation, and European Works Councils. The book thus contributes to political science research on interest representation and Europeanization as well as sociological research on labor relations.

Hierachical Regression Equations
70,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Taxes on environmental externalities have long been recognized in the economics literature as a cost effective mechanism for reducing the costs of environmental degradation. However, in recent years there has been substantial interest in other possible benefits from environmental taxes, most notably, the economic gains that could result from substituting revenues from environmental taxes for conventional, distortionary taxes on labor income or other goods and services. Emerging from this literature is the double dividend hypothesis that the economic gains from environmental taxes will be greater if the revenues are used to reduce distortionary taxes rather than be returned to consumers through lump sum transfers. Most theoretical and empirical research on the double dividend has been conducted under the assumption of a closed economy. This assumption removes the possibly important effects of interregional factor mobility and interregional trade. Moreover it is an unrealistic assumption for most economies, and especially for those of small countries or sub national political jurisdictions, such as states.

Intersecting Interregionalism
101,48 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book has two mutually reinforcing aims/parts. The first aim is to contribute to a more productive debate between different theoretical standpoints. There is surprisingly little theoretical and conceptual debate in this burgeoning field, which is one major reason for the failure to fully grasp the diversity of today's interregionalism. Too often theorists speak past each other, without really engaging with alternative theoretical perspectives or competing research results. Indeed, this book constitutes the first systematic attempt to bring together leading theories and theorists of interregionalism. Leading scholars from around the world develop their own distinctive theoretical perspectives on interregionalism, with a particular emphasis on the dynamic relationship between regionalism and interregionalism. These highly acclaimed theorists have all been associated over the years with a variety of disciplines, institutions, schools and debates and so bring a rich set of insights and connections to this pioneering project. The second part of the book 'unpacks' and problematises the region, the driving actors and institutions that are engaged in interregional relations. There is a strong tendency in the field to treat regions as coherent units actors in an interregional relationship, and such simplified notions about 'regions' and 'regional organisations' necessarily result in superficial and misleading understandings of interregionalism. This part of the book connects the theoretical discussion in the first part with a manageable empirical object.

Return Migration and Productive Employment in R...
25,00 € *

With the wake of the global financial crisis since 2007, a large number of labor migrant have returned from China's industrial centers to their rural homes, thus aggravating countryside unemployment problems. The research presented in this book has explored the employment status and its major determinants for these return migrants, focusing on the case of Hunan Province. It finds out that age, child number, house owner-ship, training experience, working experience, saving, and membership in cooperatives are significant determinants of employment for returnees. However, voluntary unemployment exists among rural women and young people. The results illustrate considerable interregional differences in employment status and economic activity. By testing the neoclassi-cal labor market theory, the human capital theory, and the social capital theory the research also contributes theoretical aspects. Its findings help improve policy implications to promote employment in rural areas.
