Evolutions in corporate governance : towards an ethical framework for business conduct - Alison L. Dempsey
Call Number: HD2741 .D46 2013
ISBN: 1906093865
Evolutions in Corporate Governance attempts to answer the wider question of how to reimagine a framework within which “good” corporate governance--that takes account of and is responsible for the social, environmental, ethical as well as legal and economic dimensions of business conduct--is addressed alongside issues of profitability and competition, in the face of forces of globalization and business influence that are testing the limits of what can be accomplished by traditional law and regulation. Dempsey contends that meaningful change in behavior will come only when there is a corporate governance framework that explicitly encompasses both law and ethics. - Book description

Social media marketing in BRIC countries : examining case studies of BMW, Adidas and Nivea - Elena Trost
Call Number: HF5415.1265 .T76 2013
ISBN: 3643902646
The economic growth and increasing Internet access within the countries of Brazil, Russia, India, and China (BRIC) is opening new opportunities for companies to reach wider audiences. This study examines these opportunities and assesses how global companies are capitalizing on these emerging markets - in particular, the degree to which digital marketing and social CRM through social networks are being used. For the purposes of this analysis, three German brands are examined in detail - BMW, Adidas, and NIVEA. The book shows that the regular interaction with Internet users and the monitoring of social networks can result in companies experiencing an uplift in both public perception and engagement. Another aspect addressed is the cultural variance that needs to be taken into account when planning social media activities. - Book description

Banking regulation in China : the role of public and private sectors - He Wei Ping
Call Number: HG3334 .P56 2014
ISBN: 1137369329
Banking Regulation in China provides an in-depth analysis of the country's contemporary banking regulatory system, focusing on regulation in practice. By drawing on public and private interest theories relating to bank regulation, He argues that controlled development of the banking sector transformed China's banks into more market-oriented institutions and increased public sector growth. This work proves that bank regulation is the primary means through which the Chinese government achieves its political and economic objectives rather than using it as a vehicle for maintaining efficient financial markets. - Book description

Strong managers, strong owners : corporate governance and strategy - Harry Korine, Pierre-Yves Gomez
Call Number: HD58.8 .K644 2014
ISBN: 1107044200
Opening the black box of agency theory, Korine and Gomez show how management and ownership interact to shape the strategy of the firm.

With numerous detailed examples, Strong Managers, Strong Owners is an invaluable resource for company owners, board members and executives, as well as their advisors in strategy and governance. - Book description

America’s fiscal constitution : its triumph and collapse - Bill White
Call Number: HJ8119 .W45 2014
ISBN: 1610393430
America's Fiscal Constitution: Its Triumph and Collapse (PublicAffairs, April 1, 2014) tells the remarkable story of federal leaders who imposed clear limits on the use of federal debt. For almost two centuries those limits allowed the federal government to borrow for only four purposes. That traditional fiscal constitution collapsed in 2001, when federal elected officials broke the traditional link between federal tax and spending policies. For the first time in history, the federal government cut taxes during war, funded permanent new programs entirely with debt, and became dependent on foreign creditors. - Book description

Call Number: HD30.2 .B4577 2014
ISBN: 1118443934
Despite the promise of technologies to make a difference, or perhaps because of it, IT organizations face continued challenges in realizing partnerships and trust with their business partners. While many books take on elements of these emerging developments or address the stubborn barriers to "real" partnership, none make the practices involved fit together in a highly effective fashion - until now. Strategic IT Management in Turbulent Times reveals how this framework ensures that organizations make the right strategic decisions to succeed in times of turbulence and change. - Book description

Fragile by design : the political origins of banking crises and scarce credit - Charles W. Calomiris and Stephen H. Haber.
Call Number: HG1561 .C35 2014
ISBN: 0691155240
Why are banking systems unstable in so many countries--but not in others? The United States has had twelve systemic banking crises since 1840, while Canada has had none. The banking systems of Mexico and Brazil have not only been crisis prone but have provided miniscule amounts of credit to business enterprises and households. Analyzing the political and banking history of the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Brazil through several centuries, Fragile by Design demonstrates that chronic banking crises and scarce credit are not accidents due to unforeseen circumstances. Rather, these fluctuations result from the complex bargains made between politicians, bankers, bank shareholders, depositors, debtors, and taxpayers. - Book description

Tax systems - Joel Slemrod and Christian Gillitzer
Call Number: HJ2305 .S695 2014
ISBN: 0262026724
Despite its theoretical elegance, the standard optimal tax model has significant limitations. In this book, Joel Slemrod and Christian Gillitzer argue that tax analysis must move beyond the emphasis on optimal tax rates and bases to consider such aspects of taxation as administration, compliance, and remittance. Slemrod and Gillitzer explore what they term a tax-systems approach, which takes tax evasion seriously; revisits the issue of remittance, or who writes the check to cover tax liability (employer or employee, retailer or consumer); incorporates administrative and compliance costs; recognizes a range of behavioral responses to tax rates; considers nonstandard instruments, including tax base breadth and enforcement effort; and acknowledges that tighter enforcement is sometimes a more socially desirable way to raise revenue than an increase in statutory tax rates. - Book description
