Money as a Global Phenomenon

The large increase in international financial integration has been one of the most striking aspects of the global economy over past decades. In recent years, the rise of capital flows between countries has been particularly dramatic. Has money therefore become a global phenomenon due to financial globalization? Excessive money growth in one country may spill over to other economies, thereby resulting in synchronously rising monetary aggregates across a variety of countries. As a result, a common and therefore global liquidity force would exist which significantly affects domestic macroeconomic and financial variables. In this work, various econometric approaches are implemented for the G7 countries and the EMU. One major contribution is the estimate of a global Structural Factor Augmented VAR model. Accordingly, common money supply shocks significantly influence the following variables on a worldwide level: real GDP, prices, the short-term interest rate and house prices. Innovations to the common money supply also trigger significant reactions of domestic variables like broad money, economic activity, CPI and residential property prices. These effects do not primarily occur in small open economies but in the US and the euro zone. There is some evidence that global excess liquidity contributed to the strongly increasing US house prices in the run-up to the recent financial crisis. The obtained empirical evidence in this work appears to contradict at least partly the prevalent monetary transmission mechanism in traditional economic models. National variables such as short-term interest rates and money supplies may not be the sole channels by which central banks affect real quantities and prices. A new kid on the block in form of global liquidity seems to have emerged especially for large countries with huge and deep financial markets.

Regional governance is a topical public policy issue and is receiving increased attention from scholars, government officials and civic leaders. As countries continue to urbanize and centralize economic functions and population in metropolitan regions, the traditional governing system is not equipped to handle policy issues that spill over local government boundaries. Governments have utilized four basic approaches to address the regional governing problem: consolidating governments, adding a regional tier, creating regional special districts, and functional cooperative approaches. The first two are structural approaches that require major (radical) changes to the governing system. The latter two are governance approaches that contemplate marginal changes to the existing governance structure and rely generally on cooperation with other governments and collaboration with the nongovernmental sector.Canada and the United States have experimented with these basic forms of regional governance. This book is a systematic analysis of these basic forms as they have been experienced by North American cities. Utilizing cases from Canada and the United States, the book provides an in-depth analysis of the pros and cons of each approach to regional governance. This research provides an additional perspective on Canadian and U.S. regional governance and adds to the knowledge of Canadian and United States governing systems. This study contributes to the literature on the various approaches to regional governance as well as bringing together the most current literature on regional governance.The author develops a framework of the values that a regional governing system should provide and measures to assess how well each basic approach achieves these values. Based on this assessment, he suggests an approach to regional governance for North American metropolitan areas that best achieves these values.

Social Ecology of Tea Gardens in India: Perspec...
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Social ecology is basically a manifestation of social system funtion comprising of structural characteristics and functional disposition. Tea gardens in India are representing unique social-ecologial behaviour and it has been more conspicuous with the advent of global warming and climate change. This unique social ecology has been a subject to withdrawl of biodiversity, erosion of physical natural bases and relentless anthropogenic activities. The book is a rare academic cultivation in the area of ecological networking by statistically designing the spill and grid effect of intra and inter ecological performances.It is unique to observe that with the change in rainfall pattern, as perceived by different tea garden stakeholders,the pattern of livelihood generation and other economic activities pertaining to this social ecology have been affected.The general social science researches are mainly confined to analysing and estimating socio-economic variables and,on contrary,this book retains a well readable research document on combined effect of socio-economic interaction with the bio-physical counterpart of the same ecological setup.Thus the book is a great creation in Social Ecology.

Metallic Materials with High Structural Efficiency

In the fall of 1998, Prof. Sergey Firstov invited me to the Frantcevych Institute for Problems of Materials Science (IPMS) in Kyiv, Ukraine to discuss possible collaborations in the area of advanced metals research. During this visit, a strong mutual interest was evident in a broad range of structural metals technologies, and a quick friendship was established. Countless subsequent emails and a reciprocal visit to the U. S Air Force Research Laboratory by Prof. Firstov and a team of scientists from IPMS ensued to discuss and detail a broad collaboration in the area of structural metals. Two years after the initial visit, a major investment by the U. S. Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) was established to pursue the technologies defined by these interactions. The annual reviews of the AFOSR Ukrainian Metals Initiative were held in late May, a most beautiful time in Kyiv when the lilacs are in bright display and the air is scented with the smell of falling blossoms from the chestnut trees that line the major streets and many parks. The sunny days and mild evenings provide a welcome break from winter, and on weekend evenings festive crowds spill onto the Khreshchatyk, Kyiv’s downtown boulevard, to listen to street musicians, watch jugglers and comedians, or simply to celebrate with friends. The annual reviews featured long days of intensive discussion of technical progress, followed in the evenings by the warm hospitality of the Ukrainian hosts.
