Interlinked credit and farm intensification: evidence from Kenya / доклад на 25 конференции IAAE, Reshaping Agriculture’s Contribution to Society, International Convention Centre, Durban, South Africa, 16-23 August 2003 [книги]

This paper addresses the potential for interlinked credit/input/output marketing arrangements for particular cash crops to promote food crop intensification. Using panel survey data from Kenya, we estimate a household fixed-effects model of fertilizer use per hectare of food crops, using an instrumental variables approach for addressing the endogeneity of participation in interlinked credit arrangements. Results indicate that households engaging in interlinked marketing programs for selected cash crops applied considerably greater fertilizer on other crops (primarily cereals) not directly purchased by the cash crop trading firm. These findings suggest that, in addition to the direct stimulus that interlinked cash crop marketing arrangements can have on small farmer incomes, these institutional arrangements may provide spillover benefits for the productivity of the farmers. other activities such as food cropping.

This book explores how a wide range of countries attempt to cope with the challenges of globalization. While the internalization of globalization proceeds in significantly different ways, there is a broad process of convergence taking place around the politics of neoliberalism and a more market-oriented version of capitalism. The book examines how distinct social structures, political cultures, patterns of party and interest group politics, classes, public policies, liberal democratic and authoritarian institutions, and the discourses that frame them, are being reshaped by political actors. Chapters cover national experiences from Europe and North America to Asia and Latin America (Chile, Mexico, and Peru).

INTERNATIONAL DIFFUSION OF GAINS FROM BIOTECHNOLOGY AND THE EUROPEAN UNION'S COMMON AGRICULTURAL POLICY / доклад на 25 конференции IAAE, Reshaping Agriculture’s Contribution to Society, International Convention Centre, Durban, South Africa, 16-23 August 2003 [книги]

This paper analyses the impact of adopting or rejecting genetically modified GM crops in the EU, taking into account the European Union's Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). In this paper the productivity impact of GMs differs across crops, as it takes factor biased technology change into account. The transfer of knowledge across countries is modelled as a process of endogenous knowledge spillovers. Analyses with a multi-region applied general equilibrium model shows that the CAP protects farm income and production from not adopting GM crops in the EU but has costs in terms of welfare. The EU will forgo substantial benefits if it banned GM imports.

This classic text has sold well for over 35 years because it covers all the conventional areas of international economics in an easy-to-understand manner. The 12th edition has been thoroughly revised and it continues to be accessible, flexible, and interesting to economics and business majors alike. Like earlier editions, it also places international economics events within an historical framework. The overall treatment continues to be intuitive rather than mathematical and is strongly oriented towards policy.

International Economics: Theory and Policy is the best-selling textbook in the field written by two of the world's leading economists, Paul R. Krugman of Princeton University and Maurice Obstfeld of the University of California, Berkeley. The Sixth Edition provides an up-to-date and understandable analytical framework for illuminating current events and new research findings in the dynamic field of international economics. This new edition has been thoroughly revised to reflect the changes of today's global economic landscape, including the unprecedented expansion of globalization, the increasingly crucial nature of international economic relations, the gains from trade, and recent anti-globalization controversies such as the continuing debate over the optimal level of trade. Consistent with previous editions, the authors also present an integrated treatment of the Ricardian model, specific factors, factor endowments, and imperfect competition models of trade, along with in-depth analysis of empirical evidence. They cover the effects and causes of trade policy and the income-distribution effects of trade, and also provide a unified model of open-economy macroeconomics, based on an asset-market approach to exchange rate determination with a central role for expectations.

В своей попытке теоретически осмыслить развитие пост-коммунистических СМИ в России, Польше и Венгрии, британский исследователь медиа Джон Даунинг ставит задачу сделать исследования СМИ менее «западноцентричными». Устанавливая связи между общей политической теорией, концепциями демократического перехода (transition) и медиа-исследованиями, автор прослеживает основные изменения пост-коммунистических СМИ в двух измерениях: коммуникативно-культурном и политико-экономическом, а также предлагает общую хронологию и исторический контекст. Затем Дж. Даунинг обсуждает применимость различных – «классических» и «критических» - теорий массовой коммуникации для осмысления этих изменений. К классике автор относит такие теории как, например, функционализм и установление повестки дня, а к критическим – разные формы марксизма и культурных исследований.
