The author analyzes the impact of technological innovations on the supermarket industry. Drawing from trade journals and interviews, Walsh argues that workers are not de-skilled by their jobs being taken over by new machines. Instead, they are re-skilled as new technologies give workers greater.

The last three decades have been characterized by a paradox of greater international economic integration but divergent economic performance. In contrast to the 1950s and 1960s, most developing countries have lagged far behind developed economies, but this growing North-South gap has been masked by the better economic performance of China, India and East Asian Tigers, implying the expansion of the 'middle income' category. This volume of analytical studies seeks to explain these major differences in economic performance in recent decades by considering the dynamics of international economic growth, diverging growth rates, economic structures, and sources of demand, successes and collapses in the developing world, and recent episodes of real income stagnation of countries. Several chapters critically review recent misleading claims and the conventional wisdom regarding the relationship of trade liberalization, financial development, development, aid, infrastructure spending, violent conflict, good governance, and industrial policy to economic growth.

Why has affirmative action become the lightning rod for conflicts over racial inequality in the United States? Have colour-blind legal and political doctrines intensified or ameliorated America's racial divisions? This text focuses on the politically driven decision of California's governor and the Board of Regents of the University of California to end affirmitive action at the university, the subsequent enactment of an amendment to the California Constitution prohibiting the state from engaging in affirmative action, and court decisions in Texas that used the federal Constitution to prohibit affirmative action at state universities, the contributors to this volume assess the late-1990s state of controversey over affirmative action.
