This topical book addresses the need for emerging economies in Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe to find a new, sustainable growth model that fosters continued convergence with the EU without leading to the build-up of new vulnerabilities. The expert contributions frame the discussion on balanced growth in Europe, deal with the legacy of the old growth model (such as managing disrupted capital flows and deleveraging), and provide insights from the growth strategies of Russia and Turkey as well as the adjustment process of successful small CESEE countries. They focus on providing a multi-disciplinary assessment, combining the views of policymakers and academics with those of central and commercial bankers. This book will prove a thought-provoking read for academics, researchers and students in the fields of economics - particularly international economics, and finance, money and banking. Policymakers and economists interested in European integration and emerging European economies will also find this book to be an invaluable resource.

"Destinations touristiques, croisières de luxe, paradis fiscaux : zones grises de la crise financière, manifestations contre la vie chère et tremblement de terre le plus meurtrier de l'histoire ; les îles de la Caraïbe qui occupent une part importante de l'actualité, restent largement méconnues. L'objectif de cet ouvrage est d'aborder ces îles, en dresser un diagnostic, à des échelles différentes et sur le temps long afin de comprendre les dynamiques contemporaines et les capacités insulaires à s'adapter voire à dépasser les crises. Sur ces espaces parfois étroits, données environnementales, sociales, économiques et géostratégiques se chevauchent, nécessitant leur prise en compte pour un développement durable et équilibré. L'ouvrage est structuré en quatre parties. La première interroge l'hypothétique unité de la Caraïbe. La diversité des histoires politiques, des alliances, les ancrages aux Etats-Unis ou à l'Union Européenne composent une mosaïque insulaire où chaque territoire connait une évolution originale. Cette diversité se retrouve aussi à toutes les échelles des données environnementales, diversité des Petites et des Grandes Antilles, des îles volcaniques ou calcaires, des côtes-au-vent ou sous-le-vent. La seconde partie s'intéresse aux dynamiques fédératrices, les principes d'une histoire coloniale commune, d'une culture et d'une identité créole partagée, la dépendance et l'influence des diasporas qui constituent une autre Caraïbe aspatiale. Le troisième chapitre présente l'originalité de ces économies insulaires qui ont largement fait l'impasse de la révolution industrielle, passant directement d'économies coloniales à large base agricole à des économies tertiaires. Les choix économiques sont divers, poursuite de l'agriculture d'exportation et tourisme, primauté au développement touristique, utilisation du large spectre de la déréglementation pour devenir des plaques tournantes du commerce, de la finance, des sièges d'entreprises ou des compagnies maritimes internationales. Enfin la quatrième partie aborde la nécessité de conduire des politiques publiques de développement durable. Les fortes densités, les déséquilibres spatiaux entraînant la congestion urbaine et économique s'opposent à la richesse des écosystèmes et à leur fragilité. Les risques environnementaux, sismiques, cycloniques laissent présager des menaces qui doivent aussi être prises en compte."--P. [4] of cover.

  • Introduction : La France, dernier enfant gâté de l'Europe ? -- Mais on demande déjà des sacrifices aux Français -- La dépense publique élevée de la France est un choix semblable à celui de beaucoup d'autres pays européens -- Le système français est efficace et il garantit un niveau de vie plus élevé qu'ailleurs -- Toucher aux dépenses publiques, ce serait renoncer à ce modèle français que le monde entier envie -- On peut toujours faire payer les riches -- Mais la réglementation du marché de travail protège tous les Français -- Alléger la réglementation du marché du travail, ce serait faire un cadeau aux entreprises -- Conclusion : Il ne faut pas infantiliser les Français.
"Depuis des années, Sophie Pedder observe la France pour The Economist ; le journal qui fait autorité dans le monde entier en matière d'économie politique. Son dossier du mois de mars 2012 sur l'avenir de la France a suscité de nombreux débats et polémiques. Pourquoi les Français sont-ils les derniers Européens à refuser de voir la réalité économique en face ? Pourquoi sont-ils encore convaincus que leur modèle social peut perdurer sans sacrifices alors que cela exaspère leurs voisins et les ridiculise aux yeux des nouvelles puissances ? Sophie Pedder analyse et compare avec les autres nations. Les chiffres sont sans appel. Il faut agir très vite, s'inspirer de la Suède, de l'Allemagne, du Québec... Ne pas limiter la politique à la stigmatisation des riches et à la protection des pauvres. Il faut un effort partagé pour restaurer la compétitivité et stimuler l'esprit d'entreprise. Si les Français n'agissent pas aujourd'hui, plus dur sera le choc demain."--P. [4] of cover.

Asian economic development and environmental consequences are not only crucial for the wellbeing of the people, but are of great relevance for the global economy. The ongoing intense debate on carbon emission mitigating strategies for reducing the impact of environmental consequences has undermined the principle of equity and put a question mark on the sustainability of the development process of the most dynamic Asian economies. This volume explores fresh perspectives on the issues of wellbeing, Asian economic development and environmental concerns. The book is organised along six themes: issues in sustainability of Asian agriculture; ecological concerns in theory and practice; core themes in economic development; resource management and policy alternatives; discrimination and socio-economic equity in development; and peasant distress and sustainability of cotton economy. The articles are based on unique quantitative data and a rigorous analytical framework for examining policies for an equitable economic and environmental international regime.

Rural communities in Japan have suffered from significant depopulation and economic downturn in post-war years. Low birth rates, aging populations, agricultural decline and youth migration to large cities have been compounded by the triple disaster of 11 March 2011, which destroyed farming and fishing communities and left thousands of people homeless. This book identifies these challenges and acknowledges that an era of post-growth has arrived in Japan. Through exploring new forms of regional employment, community empowerment, and reverse migration, the authors address potential opportunities and benefits that may help to create and ensure the quality of life in depopulating areas and post-disaster scenarios. This book will be of interest not only to students of Japanese society, but also to those outside of Japan who are seeking new approaches for tackling depopulation challenges.

This volume examines the impact of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) on Africa's development post-2015. It assesses the current state of the MDGs in Africa by outlining the successes, gaps and failures of the state goals, including lessons learned. A unique feature of the book is the exposition on post-MDG's agenda for Africa's development. Chapters on poverty, south-south partnership, aid, gender, empowerment, health as well as governance and development explore what feasible alternative lie ahead for Africa beyond the expiry date of the MDGs.
