Globalization of Capital Markets and Monetary Policy

Jens Hölscher and Horst Tomann

 

Globalization of capital markets has received new momentum and it will continue to be of major importance for the years to come. Partly, the increasing integration of financial markets and the rise of foreign direct investment is a consequence of world trade expansion. But in addition to this underlying trend, the worldwide collapse of socialist systems and the opening up of big economies like India and China have fuelled the development of globalized capital markets. This book takes stock of recent developments with emphasis on emerging capital markets.

Responsibility and Social Capital

Laura J. Spence, André Habisch and René Schmidpeter

 

Social responsibility and social capital are high on the agenda of governments and corporations. But what of the small firm? Little is known about the small firm response to social issues, despite their domination of the business landscape. This book brings empirical research on social responsibility from Germany, the UK and the Netherlands together with the theoretical concept of social capital. It makes fascinating and sometimes surprising reading for all those concerned with the role business plays in society.
