This comprehensive reference highlights the key
differences between India and China in their policy
framework and critically examines the far reaching impact
of the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) policy on trade,
technology, and employment. Exploring the reasons for
skewed regional distribution of FDI in both the
countries, this report considers the nature, type,
sources, and direction of inflows to India and China.
Drawing conclusions based on concrete empirical evidence
and supported by statistics, this study articulates the
role of pragmatic policy, strong infrastructure, and a
conducive operating environment in driving massive FDI
flows into China and advocates a reorientation of
policies relating to the development of infrastructure,
labor laws, and state-approved investments in order to
accelerate the pace of FDI inflows into India.

This book captures the important role of trust, social
capital, institutions and norms and values in the
creation of knowledge in innovation networks. In doing
so, this book connects to a long-standing debate on the
socio-spatial context of innovation in economic
geography, which is usually referred to as the
Territorial Models of Innovation (TIMs) literature.The
book breaks with the TIM literature in several important
ways.The approach to the socio-spatial context of
innovation in this book is summarized as Knowledge
Economy 2.0. It emphasizes that human creativity is now
the main source of economic value and that human
creativity and knowledge creation is not an organized
process within organizations, but happens bottom up in
formal and informal professional and social networks of
individuals that cut across multiple organizations.

This book presents the most complete set of analytical,
normative, and historical discussions of majority
decision making to date. One chapter critically addresses
the social-choice approach to majority decisions, whereas
another presents an alternative to that approach.
Extensive case studies discuss majority voting in the
choice of religion in early modern Switzerland, majority
voting in nested assemblies such as the French Estates-
General and the Federal Convention, majority voting in
federally organized countries, qualified majority voting
in the European Union Council of Ministers, and majority
voting on juries. Other chapters address the relation
between majority decisions and cognitive diversity, the
causal origin of majority decisions, and the pathologies
of majority decision making. Two chapters, finally,
discuss the counter-majoritarian role of courts.

The author subjects the development model of the high
income countries to rigorous analysis and explores the
environmental implications of China following this model.
His clear conclusion is that the carrying capacity of the
physical environment and nature is limited, that economic
and social development should not exceed the carrying
capacity of resources, and that China should not adopt
the western development path.The book analyses the
environmental impact of the current western development
model, demonstrates the catastrophic impact this would
have in terms of China-s own development and in terms of
China-s relationship with the world, and argues that
China-s rich intellectual and scientific tradition will
allow Chinese people to play a central role in finding
the solution to the profound environmental and
development challenges the world currently faces.

This book explores the concept of nation branding - what
it is and how it works - through an instructive case of
the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai, where 190 countries
showcased their national cultures to a predominantly
Chinese audience. The comparative analysis of national
pavilions (including Brazil, India, Israel, South Africa,
South Korea, Spain, the United Arab Emirates and the
United States) demonstrates how a place-branding
activity, such as the World Expo, facilitates
communication to build a nation-s image, thereby
enhancing its soft power.

This book discusses and summarizes the revived interest
in reality issues (ontology) within accounting,
economics, and the information sciences, with a view to
informing scholars from these different disciplines about
each other-s endeavours in ontological research. Even
more importantly, the book aims at familiarizing scholars
from various disciplines with an evolutionary approach
for examining questions about reality in the social
sciences.The major task of this book is to explore
proposals towards a uniform ontological basis. This
uniform and universal presentation extends beyond
traditional ontology (asking -what is real?-) to such
questions as -on which reality level is something real?-
and -in which (temporal and modal) way is it real?-.
