204p. , 22cm.
ISBN : 9789462360785.
300 BOU 146361
This book sheds new light on the complexity of today-s
society. Feelings of chaos and confusion are common.
There is discontent among citizens, and uncertainty and
lack of direction among administrators, managers, and
public officials. It seems as though no one has a clear
perspective on what is happening to society, and yet...
perhaps we have overlooked something? Hans Boutellier
delivers a realistic and inspiring picture of a new
social order. His book deals with identity and rage,
values and norms, participation and integration, and law
and security. It offers a broad, well-founded, and
constructive vision of contemporary society.

This volume explores people-s struggles and potential to
make money to suit themselves, spanning local case
studies and emergent world economies to construct a
framework of the -human economy-. Contributors to this
volume attempt to think about money as a category of
thought, offer theories on luxury and sex in capitalist
development, and follow the evolution of money today from
the role of the global South in shaping its future, to
cross-border investment in China, to Bit coin as politics.
Money in a Human Economy offers multiple perspectives on
capital-s central role in the formation of world society,
as well as in the shaping of its current discontents.

This book moves the debate beyond the critiques and the
false or not fully realised alternatives, to focus on
what can be termed "practical utopias". The contributors
to this book outline a range of practical proposals for
constructing pathways out of the global economic,
ecological and social crisis. The book eschews a single
blueprint but insists on dealing directly with the deep
structural problems and contradictions of contemporary
global capitalism. It provides a diverse array of
complementary proposals and perspectives that can inform
both theoretical thinking and practical action.

This book addresses the nexus between entrepreneurship,
neighborhoods and communities, confirming not only the
importance of `the local- in entrepreneurship, but also
filling huge gaps in the knowledge base regarding this
tripartite relationship. It examines the ways in which
entrepreneurship can benefit, shape and transform
neighborhoods, particularly those areas affected by
social deprivation and poverty. Finally, it outlines a
research agenda to further extend the scientific and
policy-relevant knowledge on the relationships between
entrepreneurship, neighborhoods and communities.

The question of whether we can foster growth and
innovation while promoting individual freedoms poses a
challenge for everyone studying and working on innovation
and development policies. Whilst innovation literature is
largely dominated by a focus on efficiency, development
literature tends to focus on equality and pays less
attention to mechanisms fostering economic and social
change. This book aims to move beyond these barriers and
to identify development policies that foster both
efficiency and equality, exploring the connection between
innovation policies and the improvement of individual

This book sets out an alternative approach, which places
care at the center of an economics of health, showing how
essential it is that care is appropriately recognized in
policy as a means of enhancing the dignity of the
individual. Whereas traditional health economics has
tended to eschew value issues, this book embraces them,
introducing care as a normative element at the center of
theoretical analysis. Drawing upon care theory from
feminist works, philosophy, nursing and medicine, and
political economy, the authors develop a health care

seeks to redress the shortcomings of the standard
approach and contribute to the development of a more

Capitalism without capital : the rise of the intangible
economy / Jonathan Haskel and Stian Westlake.-- Princeton

ISBN : 9780691175034.
338.5 HAS 146316
Early in the twenty-first century, a quiet revolution
occurred. For the first time, the major developed
economies began to invest more in intangible assets, like
design, branding, R and D, and software, than in tangible
assets, like machinery, buildings, and computers. For all
sorts of businesses, from tech firms and pharm companies
to coffee shops and gyms, the ability to deploy assets
that one can neither see nor touch is increasingly the
main source of long-term success. But this is not just a
familiar story of the so-called new economy. Capitalism
without Capital shows that the growing importance of
intangible assets has also played a role in some of the
big economic changes of the last decade. The rise of
intangible investment is, Jonathan Haskel and Stian
Westlake argue, an underappreciated cause of phenomena
from economic inequality to stagnating productivity.

This book offers an integrated framework to study the
theoretical and quantitative properties of economies with
frictions in multiple markets. Building on analyses of
markets with frictions by 2010 Nobel laureates Peter A.
Diamond, Dale T. Mortensen, and Christopher A.
Pissarides, which provided a new theoretical approach to
search markets, the book applies this new paradigm to
labor, finance, and goods markets. It shows, in
particular, how frictions in different markets interact
with each other. The book first covers the main
developments in the analysis of the labor market in the
presence of frictions, offering a systematic analysis of
the dynamics of this environment and explaining the
notion of macroeconomic volatility.
