There is a significant gap in the understanding of internal management operations within regional development boards. The deficiency has implications for research methods in this area. The current debate on realism in case study research has examined the selection of an appropriate research methodology. The circumstances to be researched (Eisenhardt 1989; Glasser & Strauss 1967; Yin 1989) and the theoretical paradigm adopted by the researcher (Guba & Lincoln 1994; Layder 1993; Outhwaite 1983) determine the research methodology in case study research. This paper builds on contributions to this debate by Perry, Alizadeh and Riege (1997) and Perry (1998) that describe the circumstances and paradigm that best argue for the use of case study method. Further, this paper adds to this debate and sets out an example of a case study approach for the analysis of the qualitative data to ensure methodological rigor. In turn, it outlines outlines an approach for the analysis of qualitative data through multi-level analysis.

Основная идея книги всемирно известного норвежского криминолога Нильса Кристи заключается в том, что в современном обществе главная опасность преступности состоит не в преступлениях, а в том, что борьба с преступностью может столкнуть общество на тоталитарный путь развития. Автор анализирует численность и условия содержания заключенных в странах Западной и Восточной Европы, включая Россию, Северной и Южной Америки и показывает существование устойчивой тенденции в США к росту числа заключенных. Борьба с преступностью стала в США настоящей индустрией, приносящей как экономические, так и политические выгоды.

There is no doubt that the pace of business has accelerated-products go from concept to release faster than ever, business partnerships and alliances are established (and dissolved) more quickly, competitors react more swiftly to any tilt in the playing field. Whether your business is microprocessors or airplane manufacturing, it will live or die by the degree to which you can anticipate demand for your products and services. In Getting It Right the First Time, John Katsaros and Peter Christy argue that the most successful businesses will be those that accurately predict market conditions-especially the market changes that will occur within the crucial 18-to-36-month innovation window. The authors present a detailed plan for how you and your company can learn to: identify your top customers in advance of entering the market, successfully position your company and its products to those customers, and catch emerging trends before your competitors do.

The strategic use of knowledge and its management depend upon the relevant organizational context. The model of the learning ladder is a compact way of describing the unfolding of multiple organizational knowledge creation, transformation and transfer processes in a single firm context. Additionally, in this context the governance of the firm internal knowledge processes is performed according to the resource - based view of strategy. In this paper two different contexts challenging such model are explored in the case of a large pharmaceutical company, AstraZeneca. First, the boundaries of the single firm are crossed by looking at those advantages, which may be attained by managing the transfer and co-production of unique knowledge between a few allied firms according to the theory of relational rents. AstraZeneca formal network is discussed in the light of this model. Secondly, emerging features of how knowledge is managed among a large number of interdependent organizations and individuals are explored with reference to the case of a very peculiar R&D department at AstraZeneca: Clinical Science. While in the first case the model prove to hold, in the latter context behaviours and performances seem to contradict the principles of knowledge management inspired by the resource-based and relational views. This is puzzling: conventional strategic and knowledge management frameworks break down precisely when dealing with highly distributed, knowledge intensive businesses.

In Counterintuitive Marketing, Clancy and Krieg trace the high rate of business failure back to bad marketing strategy, and the even worse implementation of that strategy. Excess testosterone, they argue, compels senior managers to make decisions intuitively, instinctively, quickly, and, unfortunately, disastrously. In this informative and enlightening book, Clancy and Krieg confront these "over-and-over-again" marketers, who don't have time to do it right the first time, but endless time and a company bankroll to do it wrong over and over again. The authors draw from their decades of consumer and business-to-business marketing experience to describe the intuitive decision-making practices that permeate business today, and demonstrate how these practices lead to disappointing performance. Chapter by chapter, Counterintuitive Marketing contrasts how marketing decisions are made today with how they should be made. The authors give equal treatment to targeting, positioning, product development, pricing, customer service, e-commerce, marketing planning, implementation, and more as they present counterintuitive ideas for building and introducing blockbuster marketing programs. The tools to create exceptional marketing programs really do exist, and they are all here in Counterintuitive Marketing, the ultimate practical guide for any company of any size.

Authors study the international monetary policy design problem within an optimizing two-country sticky price model, where each country faces a short run tradeoff between output and inflation. The model is sufficiently tractable to solve analytically. Authors find that in the Nash equilibrium, the policy problem for each central bank is isomorphic to the one it would face if it were a closed economy. Gains from cooperation arise, however, that stem from the impact of foreign economic activity on the domestic marginal cost of production. While under Nash central banks need only adjust the interest rate in response to domestic inflation, under cooperation they should respond to foreign inflation as well. In either scenario, flexible exchange rates are desirable.

Marriage, Domestic Life and Social Change is an important tribute to the life and work of Jacqueline Burgoyne, a leading sociologist of marriage and the family who died in 1988. The book includes an appreciation of her life by the editor, and one of her previously unpublished papers on couple relationships.

In specially commissioned chapters, a group of distinguished colleagues working in the field of family studies address a number of key issues that are central to the work of Jacqueline Burgoyne. The topics explored include the organization of family life in Britain since World War II; a review of key themes in family research in the 1980s; commentary on the major demographic trends relating to marriage and the family over the last four decades; family ideologies; interventions into family life; and investigations into the inner world of marriage, seen from psychodynamic and sociological perspectives. The book is both a fitting tribute to the important work of Jacqueline Burgoyne and a comprehensive guide to the sociology of the family.

The growth of pension funds has been nothing short of astronomical. Pension funds now dominate the world's financial markets, affecting nations' wealth, community development, and industrial well being. Yet little is known about their structure and organization. Pension funds and their agents in the investment industry control enormous sums of money, profoundly affecting the structure and performance of nation-states and the global economy. At the same time, it is also apparent that many western governments are retreating from the provision of 'public good' once thought essential to the fabric of urban life. Clark agues that if we are to understand the long-term future of the western economies (in general) and our communities (in particular), we need also to understand how institutional investors allocate assets, mobilize funds, and make investment decisions. There are few studies of the relationship between pension funds and the financial services industry. Pension Fund Capitalism fills an important gap in the literature as well as the intersection between pension funds and public policy.

Изд-во: Princeton University Press, 2007, cерия "Princeton Economic History of the Western World", 440 с.
Why are some parts of the world so rich and others so poor? Why did the Industrial Revolution--and the unprecedented economic growth that came with it--occur in eighteenth-century England, and not at some other time, or in some other place? Why didn't industrialization make the whole world rich--and why did it make large parts of the world even poorer? In A Farewell to Alms, Gregory Clark tackles these profound questions and suggests a new and provocative way in which culture--not exploitation, geography, or resources--explains the wealth, and the poverty, of nations. Countering the prevailing theory that the Industrial Revolution was sparked by the sudden development of stable political, legal, and economic institutions in seventeenth-century Europe, Clark shows that such institutions existed long before industrialization. He argues instead that these institutions gradually led to deep cultural changes by encouraging people to abandon hunter-gatherer instincts-violence, impatience, and economy of effort-and adopt economic habits-hard work, rationality, and education. The problem, Clark says, is that only societies that have long histories of settlement and security seem to develop the cultural characteristics and effective workforces that enable economic growth. For the many societies that have not enjoyed long periods of stability, industrialization has not been a blessing. Clark also dissects the notion, championed by Jared Diamond in Guns, Germs, and Steel, that natural endowments such as geography account for differences in the wealth of nations. A brilliant and sobering challenge to the idea that poor societies can be economically developed through outside intervention, A Farewell to Alms may change the way global economic history is understood. Gregory Clark is chair of the economics department at the University of California, Davis. He has written widely about economic history.

A new procedure is developed to estimate innovation possibility frontiers and test for biases in technological change. Using data on four inputs (land, machinery, chemicals and labour) from central Canada (Ontario and Quebec) over the period 1926-1985, we find that the innovations possibilities frontier shifts neutrally over time. This is consistent with Ahmad.s model of induced innovations, but is not consistent with de Janvry.s application of Ahmad.s model to the historical development of Argentine agriculture. Agricultural research in Canada has been conducted with the objective of developing cost minimizing technologies. Empirical support was found for this notion in the development of the innovation possibilities frontier.
