Description : From the Foreword: Despite the longevity and importance of competition policy, there has been no comprehensive study of its objectives. Hence this work by Gorecki and Stanbury fills a gap in our understanding of how the objectives of a public policy are adapted to changes in the economy, shifts in political priorities, new developments in theory, and refinements in judicial decision making.

Description : A pragmatic approach to business ethics is argued for in this volume, which demonstrates the usefulness of the approach by applying it to a variety of issues. These issues are broad and far-reaching and include the relations between rational and moral//ethical decision-making, the limits of loyalty to employers, the impact of trust on business and the role of commercial public opinion polling during elections. The author also covers advertising, tobacco promotion, manufacture and marketing of armaments, concentration and taxation of wealth, and the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Description : "The Canadian government's pursuit of economic growth is central to its economic policy and to the nature of its relationship with the business community. The government depends on business investment for economic growth vital to the prosperity of citizens, the generation of tax revenues, and enough public satisfaction to win re-election. Businesses depend on the government for stable sets of rules that are necessary for success. They often look to governments for protection against threats to their well-being and for assistance in competing with other businesses. In this new edition of Uneasy Partnership, Geoffrey Hale examines the interdependent relationship between Canadian governments and businesses, considering the political role of the government in the economy and what effect this has on the business environment. Hale provides an overview of the historical dimensions of Canada's political economy and relations between government and business, giving readers background to consider topics such as corporate power, the implications of Canada's economic structure, regional economic differences, and the role of interest groups in political and policy processes, among others. In a thoughtful and well-researched style, Hale lays out how the partnership between business and government in Canada is an uneasy one--and one whose capacity to adapt to ongoing changes is essential in an uncertain world."--

Description : This is the ninth edition of How Ottawa Spends. As in years past, this volume focuses largely on national priorities, federal spending and taxing. However, it also deals with the less visible underside of federal regulatory law and non-discretionary expenditures, such as the federal share of the Canada Assistance Plan. This is appropriate in terms of the theme of this volume: "Heading Into the Stretch". It is likely that this will be the last edition of How Ottawa Spends before the next federal election. Informed discussion and debate about the various federal responsibilities covered in this review are intended to spark public interest and help in consideration of the government record. It is hoped that the examination of the February 1988 budget and 1988-89 Estimates contained in this volume will also be illuminating.

Description : For readers who intend to read this volume without reading the first, some in troductory remarks are in order about the scope of the work and the strategy used in all five volumes to measure the qUality of life. In the frrst chapter of Volume I, I reviewed the relevant recent literature on social indicators and so cial reporting, and explained all the general difficulties involved in such work. It would be redundant to repeat that discussion here, but there are some fundamental points that are worth mentioning. Readers who fmd this account too brief should consult the longer discussion. The basic question that will be answered in this work is this: Is there a difference in the quality of life in Canada and the United States of America, and if so, in which country is it better? Alternatively, one could put the question thus: If one individual were randomly selected out of Canada and another out of the United States, would there be important qualitative differences, and if so, which one would probably be better off? To simplify matters, I often use the terms 'Canadian' and 'American' as abbreviations for 'a randomly selected resident' of Canada or the United States, respec tively.

Description : This book contains the key-note lectures and a selection of papers that were presented at the 15th Conference of the European Association for Research in Industrial Econo mics (EARlE) held under the auspices of GRASP at Erasmus University Rotterdam in 1988, plus an introductory chapter by the Editors. Upon suggestions by the Editors, all papers have been revised for this book, some more extensively than others. Robin Marris has added to his lecture a synopsis of the contributions to the Round Table on the Micro-Macro Interface which he chaired during the Conference. The papers cover issues that seem to be both interesting and relevant for the 1990s. While some of the papers are cast in a rather established research frame -enabling the use of regular academic routines - others are first attempts at delineating the contours of areas that are peripheral to what is often considered as the core of Industrial Organization. In their introductory chapter, the Editors set forth that a neglect of those areas may well relegate Industrial Organization to social irrelevancy. Therefore, it is hoped that the book will also contribute to a reflection on the main lines of Industrial Organization research for the 1990s -thus helping to create a healthy perspective for this part of economics at a time when macroeconomics is undergoing a severe crisis.

Description : Governing the Corporation is a unique forum combining the insights of some of the most influential minds involved in the governance of global financial markets with internationally recognised academics and practitioners. Divided into three sections, the book first examines changes to the regulation of markets and assesses the global implications of the export of Sarbanes-Oxley for financial sector governance. The second section examines the challenges facing the professions with critical analysis from leading lawyers and accountants. The final section calculates the effectiveness of state and self-regulatory policy and posits the importance of institutionalising an ethical framework tied to incentives. Each section of the book features contributions from regulators, practitioners and academics from a range of disciplines, including finance, political science, criminology, law and philosophy.

Description : Competition policy is defined as those policies and actions of the state intended to prevent certain restraints of trade by private firms. Canadian laws, institutions, and practices regarding anticompetitive measures have a significant impact on the fairness and efficiency of Canadian business and on the ultimate accrual of the benefits of competition to the Canadian public. This volume reviews how Canada's core competition policy institutions and players, notably the Bureau of Competition Policy and the Director of Investigation and Research, have implemented the Competition Act of 1986 and, in the process, have dealt increasingly with cases requiring some measure of economic analysis and judgment, as opposed to criminal prosecution. The volume also examines the experience of other countries and offers an 8-point comparative framework against which to assess competition regimes. It then suggests options for change in a number of areas of Canadian competition policy.

Description : The conference proceedings contained in this document explore several questions ranging from specific concerns with concentrated ownership and cross-ownership, the extent to which biases in market allocation decisions are driven by tax policy, by other public policies, or induced by other distortions in market structures, to more general questions of corporate governance and the efficiency of markets for corporate control. The papers are organized into the following general topics: dimensions of corporate concentration; rethinking the modern corporation; takeovers: determinants and effects; the financial sector; corporate power and influence; and public policy responses.
