by Peter Maunder and Zanny Minton Beddoes

In recent years economists have been re-examining their understanding of macroeconomics in the light of the global financial crisis that began in 2007-08.

Five years after the 2008 bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, The Economist published a series of briefs on the financial crisis andits aftermath, which were later published as a book under the title Debts, Deficits and Dilemmas.This companion workbook, which is aimed at both economics students and their teachers, includes questions and exercises that students can work through - either on their own or through classroom debate - to help them gain a good understanding of the financial crisis and what has followed it....

by Inter-American Development Bank and Matteo Grazzi

This volume uses the study of firm dynamics to investigate the factors preventing faster productivity growth in Latin America and the Caribbean, pushing past the limits of traditional macroeconomic analyses.

Who are the dominant owners of U.S. public debt? Is it widely held, or concentrated in the hands of a few? Does ownership of public debt give these bondholders power over our government? What do we make of the fact that foreign-owned debt has ballooned to nearly 50 percent today? Until now, we have not had any satisfactory answers to these questions. Public Debt, Inequality, and Power is the first comprehensive historical analysis of public debt ownership in the United States. It reveals that ownership of federal bonds has been increasingly concentrated in the hands of the 1 percent over the last three deca...

Equity, Growth, and Community: What the Nation Can Learn from America's Metro Areas

by Chris Benner and Manuel Pastor

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s new open access publishing program for monographs. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. In the last several years, much has been written about growing economic challenges, increasing income inequality, and political polarization in the United States. This book argues that lessons for addressing these national challenges are emerging from a new set of realities in America’s metropolitan regions: first, that inequity is, in fact, bad for economic growth; second, that bringing together the concerns of equity and growth requires concerted local action; and, third, that the fundamental building block for doing this is the creation of diverse and dynamic epistemic (or knowledge) communities, w...

Voices of Labor: Creativity, Craft, and Conflict in Global Hollywood

by Michael Curtin and Kevin Sanson

Motion pictures are made, not mass produced, requiring a remarkable collection of skills, self-discipline, and sociality—all of which are sources of enormous pride among Hollywood’s craft and creative workers. The interviews collected here showcase the ingenuity, enthusiasm, and aesthetic pleasures that attract people to careers in the film and television industries. They also reflect critically on changes in the workplace brought about by corporate conglomeration and globalization. Rather than offer publicity-friendly anecdotes by marquee celebrities, Voices of Labor presents off-screen observations about the everyday realities of Global Hollywood. Ranging across job categories—from showrunner to make-up artist to location manager—this collection features voices of labor from Los ...

A Fair Share of Tax: A Fiscal Anthropology of Contemporary Sweden

by Lotta Björklund Larsen

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book takes a taxpayer's perspective on the relations taxation creates between people and their state. Björklund Larsen proposes that in order to understand tax compliance and cheating, we have to look beyond law, psychological experiments and surveys to also include tax collectors and taxpayers' practices. The text explores the view of taxes seen as citizen’s explicit economic relation to the state and implicit economic relation to all other compatriots. Björklund Larsen directs our gaze onto the concept of reciprocity, which is often proposed as an explanation in tax compliance research, and explores its diverse meanings and implications ethnographically. The empirical cases are based on ethnography from two opposing tax practic...
