Globalization and Egalitarian Redistribution
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0195685512 / 9780195685510; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Can the welfare state survive in an economically integrated world? Many have argued that globalization has undermined national policies to raise the living standards and enhance the economic opportunities of the poor. This book, by sixteen of the world’s leading authorities in international economics and the welfare state, suggests a surprisingly different set of consequences: Globalization does not preclude social insurance and egalitarian redistribution — but it does change the mix of policies that can accomplish these ends. Globalization and Egalitarian Redistribution demonstrates that the free flow of goods, capital, and labor has increased the inequality of volatility of labor earnings in advanced industrial societies — while constraining governments’ ability to tax the winners from globalization to compensate workers for their loss. This flow has meanwhile created opportunities for enhancing the welfare of the less well off in poor and middle-income countries. Comprising eleven essays framed by the editors’ introduction and conclusion, this book represents the first systematic look at how globalization affects policies aimed at reducing inequalities. The contributors are Keith Banting, Pranab Bardhan, Carles Boix, Samuel Bowles, Minsik Choi, Richard Johnston, Covadonga Meseguer Yebra, Karl Ove Moene, Layna Mosley, Claus Offe, Ugo Pagano, Adam Przeworski, Kenneth Scheve, Matthew J. Slaughter, Stuart Soroka, and Michael Wallerstein. 019103

Inequality, Cooperation, and Environmental Sustainability
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0195691601 / 9780195691603; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Would improving the economic, social, and political condition of the world’s disadvantaged people slow or accelerate environmental degradation? Leading social scientists in this volume provide answers to this difficult question, using new research on the impact of inequality on environmental sustainability. The contributors’ findings suggest that inequality may exacerbate environmental problems by making it more difficult for individuals, groups, and nations to cooperate in the design and enforcement of measures to protect natural assets ranging from local commons to the global climate. But a more equal division of a given amount of income could speed the process of environmental degradation. The contributors also find that the effect of inequality on cooperation and environmental sustainability depends critically on the economic and political institutions governing how people interact and the technical nature of the environmental asset in question. They focus on the local commons because many of the world’s poorest depend on them for their livelihoods, and recent research has made great strides in showing how private incentives, group governance, and government policies might combine to protect these resources. 019941

Scarcity, Conflicts, and Cooperation
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195676793 / 9780195676792; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This institutional framework of an economy defines opportunities for individuals, determines the business climate, and shapes the incentives and organizations for collective action by local communities in resolving their common problems. Institutional failures, weak accountability mechanisms, and missed opportunies for cooperative problem-solving are the main themes of the book, with the role of distributive conflicts in the persistence of dysfunctional institutions a common thread. Special iss ues taken up include the institutions for securing property rights and resolving coordination failures the structural basis of power commitment devices and political accountability the complex relationship between democracy and poverty (with examples from India, where both have been durable) decentralization and devolution of power persistence of corruption ethnic conflicts and impediments to collective action (including a study of cooperation in irrigation in Tamil Nadu). The essays are important for understanding the development process and the problems of governance and institutional change in developing countries with issues examined often in the empirical context of India Printed Pages: 318. 014003
