Abstract

Many think they know the legends behind tulipmania and the legacy of the Dutch East India Company, but what basic knowledge of Dutch history should be passed on to future generations? This overview of historical highlights, assembled by a number of specialists in consultation with the Dutch general public, provides a thought-provoking and timely answer. The democratic process behind the volume is reminiscent of the way in which the Netherlands has excelled for centuries at collective craftsmanship, and says as much about the Netherlands as does the outcome of the opinions voiced. The Netherlands in a Nutshell offers a mine of information for visitors to the Netherlands, and should appeal to anyone interested in the history of this fascinating and multi-faceted land in the heart of Europe.

Abstract

Like all the books in this series, this volume proposes wide-ranging reflections and cultural considerations pertinent to business management. Traditionally, realism is identified with a disenchanted approach to reality which is counterpoised to all forms of ideology or utopia. What is proposed here is a strategic realism which supports a humanist approach to enterprise, while steering clear of both cynicism and idealism. Seen from this angle, the crucial aspects of strategy are: the opportune selection of attainable advantages; interest as the spur to change; stratagem as a lever on the trend of events; the plan which traces the route of the opportunities called up, and the action that harvests the fruits.

Abstract

The Stanze della Moda project has set up an Observatory with the purpose of economic and management monitoring of the fabric of the Florentine companies through a marketing and research workshop. The analysis of several major international retailers demonstrates the emergence of a successful business model which, albeit in some respects idiosyncratic and difficult to transfer, represents an innovative stimulus for companies in the sector that want to redefine their competitiveness in the face of the altered market conditions. The focus on the Florentine companies delineates the ways in which the local manufacturers intercept the purchasing channels of major retail, creating a mediated form of sales on the international markets.

Abstract

This book proposes theoretical reflections, tools and techniques for a business ethic that aims at the construction of social welfare. A correct connotation of business ethics is seen in its role of interface between the ontology of the "enterprise phenomenon" and the social ethics of its operation. The book upholds the theory that business development can be such only if it leads to the emancipation of the persons affected by the same. A development in which, that is, it is not only the economic results that have bearing, but above all the way in which they are obtained and exploited. In enterprise, too, priority should hence be given to a practice implemented in a conscientious manner which enhances the complete development of the persons involved, whether they are workers or consumers.

Abstract

Today, hazardous work kills 2.3 million people each year and injures millions more. Among the most compelling yet controversial forms of legal protection for workers is the right to refuse unsafe work. The rise of globalization, precarious work, neoliberal politics, attacks on unions, and the idea of individual employment rights have challenged the protection of occupational health and safety for workers worldwide. In Hazard or Hardship, Jeffrey Hilgert presents the protection of refusal rights as a moral and a human rights question.

Abstract

In today&rsquo;s world, we live with the notion that economic health and firm competitiveness are closely tied. Innovation and creativity play a significant role in achieving economic, social, and technological advancement, contributing to a nation's prosperity and leading to job growth for a country. Industries can capitalize on economic benefits through the development and commercialization of innovative products. This also works for consumers, who prefer to purchase safe, guaranteed products, believing that the IP rights of the products are worth protecting both nationally and internationally. The topics covered in this book include an ""Introduction to Intellectual Property Rights,"" ""Patenting in the Pharmaceutical Industry,"" ""Towards More Inclusive IP Analysis by Frontier Tools,"" ""Patent Data in Economic Analysis,"" ""How to Elaborate and Interpret an Expert Report on the Design Area,"" and ""Host-Country Patenting and Inventorship in Emerging Countries.""

Abstract

Economics is about understanding the rational behaviour of economic agents (households, firms, industries and government) in their decisions to achieve best outcomes of their goals and aspirations. They collectively converge to achieve the utmost economic and social benefits for all in the country in terms of economic growth and development. Economic growth and development occur through efficient use of available resources to meet effective demand and social needs. The challenge that countries are facing is proper application of appropriate policy mix to optimize the opportunities of increasingly interdependent global economic landscape. For emerging economies, a multiple sector strategy that propels economic transformation is crucial. This needs to be predicated on robust macroeconomic policy framework that aligns with global production and consumption activities to drive economic growth process for achieving sustainable development.

Abstract

No time in the history, consumption is considered to be as important as in today's world. It defines who we are, how well/perfect we perform our multiroles within the society (buying the most expensive clothes means being the best mom for instances), what symbolic meanings we attribute to our belongings, and how rich/clever/fashion conscious or innovative we are. Due to multidisciplinary and multimethod character of the concept of consumer behavior, it is appropriate to study it accordingly in order to understand the subject with its different aspects and holistically. Especially with the cultural, social, and technological changes within today's world, this issue becomes prominent. This book is a modest try for that end.

Abstract

Taxes are a constant part of life for every company and a constant element of economics, finance, and financial law. Any changes observed in the science and theory also apply to the importance and position of taxes in the practice of corporate finance, public finance, and economic growth. Beside this, a new meaning of taxes in the economies of countries in the world and the European Union is introduced. Taxes will always introduce risks and uncertainties in business, due to the high volatility and uncertainty of tax law. Moreover, being a category that affects the economic growth, they cause disturbances in stability and welfare of the state. Therefore, while considering the essence of taxes in a country, one should not consider this category in isolation from corporate finance and social welfare. Two things are certain in the world: death and taxes.
