Contrived Laissez-Faireism: The Politico-Economic Structure of British Colonialism in Hong Kong By Fujio Mizuoka
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 281 Pages | ISBN : 3319697927 | 8.09 MB

This book analyses neo-liberal economic policy in Hong Kong and its relationship to British colonial governance. Using historical, political, and economic examples, the author argues that the growth and stability experienced by Hong Kong in the post-WWII/pre-1997 era was a direct result of policies enacted by the British in an effort to maintain colonial dominance in an era of decolonization rather than the independent workings of the free market.

Sovereign Debt Crises and Negotiations in Brazil and Mexico, 1888-1914: Governments versus Bankers By Leonardo Weller
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 193 Pages | ISBN : 3319736329 | 2.8 MB

This book analyzes the relative balance of bargaining power between governments and the banks in charge of underwriting their debt during the first financial globalization. Brazil and Mexico, both indebted countries that underwent major changes in reputation and negotiating power as they faced financial crises, provide valuable case studies of government strategies for obtaining the best possible outcomes. Previous literature has focused on bankers’ perspectives and emphasized that debtors were submissive during negotiations, but Weller finds that governments’ negotiating power varied over time. He presents a new analytical framework that interprets when and why officials were likely to negotiate loans more or less effectively, with newly uncovered primary sources from debtors’ and creditors’ archives suggesting key causes of variation: fiscal accounts, political stability, and creditors’ exposure and reputation.

Italian | 2018 | 185 pages | ISBN: 8893880784 | EPUB | 0,3 MB

Alberto Forchielli è un economista sui generis, anticonformista e schietto. Uno che gestisce un importante fondo di private equity, profondo conoscitore del mercato cinese, uno che viene ascoltato al Congresso degli Stati Uniti come alla Silicon Valley. Uomo globalizzato dal 1980, vive girando il mondo ma è rimasto legato alla sua Italia, della quale impietosamente denuncia i difetti e il provincialismo. In questo pamphlet agile e corrosivo vuole scuotere la generazione dei trentenni, rassegnati e letargici, aiutandoli a scegliere fra andare all’estero o restare, e in tal caso combattere per cambiare un Paese che non fa nulla per regalare un futuro ai suoi figli..

Da sempre simbolo di ricchezza, bellezza, divinità, potere. Ma anche di risparmio e di scambio. Chi lo possiede lo conserva al sicuro in scrigni, casseforti, forzieri e caveaux. Perché? L'oro è un mistero che resiste da seimila anni. Oggi, nell'era del denaro di carta e del denaro virtuale, l'oro dovrebbe apparirci anacronistico. Eppure non è dimenticato affatto da chi cerca un porto sicuro per i propri risparmi. A cominciare dagli Stati e dalle banche centrali, l'oro resta il bene-rifugio per eccellenza, perno delle economie e dei sistemi monetari.
