International Business Under Adversity

A Role in Corporate Responsibility, Conflict Prevention and Peace

Business and corporate actions, globally and locally, have often encouraged and aggravated human conflict. Equally evident is the fact that business, if only out of enlightened self-interest, can and should be an integral part of preventing, mitigating and ending violent conflict. This highly complex relationship needs to be seriously studied and discussed with an open mind. Dr. Suder s publication makes an important contribution to this discussion and I recommend the information and analysis contained in this book to a wide audience. Daniel Stauffacher, Former Ambassador of Switzerland and Chairman ICT4Peace Foundation While Golda Meir was Prime Minister of Israel she shared her hopes for humanity: I hope that some day, perhaps not in my time or my children s time, but in my grandchildren s time, war will become like cannibalism, completely unthinkable . For war to be unthinkable, business must be a part of the solution. Gabriele Suder s new volume recognizes the imperative of peace and brings many of the best thinkers in the world together to ask how the private sector can contribute to a peaceful future for our planet. With strikingly new ideas, International Business under Adversity is must reading for business leaders and students alike. Nancy J. Adler, McGill University, Canada International Business under Adversity explores the essential issues of corporate responsibility rooted in firms international activities. The wide spread of specific sets of values, ways of thinking and living, infrastructures and technologies are commonly associated with the motivations of conflict, crisis and terrorism. What is the role of international business in this dilemma? How and why do international corporations maximize value beyond core strategy and partners through corporate responsibility? This informative and accessible resource expands the readers understanding of the ways in which profit maximization, value creation and community benefit interconnect. How to respect the wider business settings and communities, the environment and encourage peace? Is this just another dream? This book clearly provides a starting point for upstream mitigation, in which collective action allows disruption to be avoided at its very roots. It shows the way into responsible business, as a downright condition for an enlightened self-interest for all parties to pursue. This book will be of great interest to those who wish to understand the case for corporate responsibility: its tools, measures and practices in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), conflict prevention, and reduction of risk and uncertainty in the globalized world. It will be valuable to the leadership of international corporations, and serve academics and postgraduate students to efficiently link the fields of risk management, CSR, business ethics and corporate strategy.

Ecological Economics and the Ecology of Economics

Essays in Criticism

'Daly's book is an excellent and illustrating confrontation of the two important paradigms of scientific economics. It leaves the reader with the conviction that the still prevailing paradigm of neo-classical economics will have to be replaced if sustainability is to become a real objective of economic policy.' - Günther Weinschenck, Quarterly Journal of International Agriculture In this controversial book Herman Daly, a leading commentator on the environment, offers lively criticism of existing work on ecological economics and the economics of ecology. the theme throughout the book is about changes in perspective, attitudes and policies required to avoid uneconomic growth - that is, the impoverishment that results when the environmental and social costs of growth exceed the benefits.

The Economics and Ideology of Free Trade

A Historical Review

'Gomes deserves praise for an excellent presentation and assessment of a large body of economic literature, and for incisive observations regarding history of thought and events.' - Lawrence H. Officer, EH.Net 'Leonard Gomes has written a masterful account of the history of the concept of free trade, its underpinnings in economic theory, the controversial implementation of free trade policies in the past two centuries. A distinctive feature of this book is its encompassing perspective on the history, economics, politics and ideology of free trade. Gomes examines how the economics of free trade was interpreted by the mercantilists, the classical and neoclassical economists, and the present-day "new trade theorists". After tracing the evolution of commercial policy through successive eras of freer trade and backlashes against it, Gomes concludes with a thoughtful analysis of the current meaning, benefits and costs of globalization. This readable and scholarly book is an ideal supplementary text for any course in trade theory.' - Andrea Maneschi, Vanderbilt University, US 'The book is an impressive scholarly contribution that draws important lessons from economic history and intellectual history for some crucial contemporary problems. It will immensely enrich the current debate on the role of international trade and globalisation.' - Ha-Joon Chang, University of Cambridge, UK 'Leonard Gomes is the author of three splendid books on the history of international trade theory. In this new book, he brings his knowledge of economic history and the history of economic thought to bear on the current controversy over globalisation. With a masterly command of the literature, he sorts out the sense and nonsense of the great dispute between the Washington consensus and the global protesters.' - Mark Blaug, University of London, University of Buckingham, UK, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands The Economics and Ideology of Free Trade makes an important contribution to the debate on globalization by providing much needed intellectual and historical perspective on the issue of Free Trade versus Protection. The book does so by reviewing and integrating doctrinal history and past policy debates. Firstly the book deals with the doctrinal evolution of the economics of free trade from the mercantilists onwards (including the reaction against classical economics by Friedrich List and the American national economists). It then goes on to critically examine the debates, policies and events that mark over two centuries of fierce but intellectually stimulating controversy over free trade and protection (including the debate on the Corn Laws, the British Tariff Reform Controversy 1903, and Keynes on Protection). In this stimulating and highly informative volume, the author summarizes and encapsulates a vast amount of material in a singularly economical and succinct manner that will appeal to academics and students interested in the history of economic thought, international economics, economic history and also international relations.

A distinctive feature of this book is its encompassing perspective on the history, economics, politics and ideology of free trade.
