The British in Argentina
28,39 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Drawing on largely unexplored nineteenth- and twentieth-century sources, this book offers an in-depth study of Britain's presence in Argentina. Its subjects include the nineteenth-century rise of British trade, merchants and explorers, of investment and railways, and of British imperialism. Spanning the period from the Napoleonic Wars until the end of the twentieth century, it provides a comprehensive history of the unique British community in Argentina. Later sections examine the decline of British influence in Argentina from World War I into the early 1950s. Finally, the book traces links between British multinationals and the political breakdown in Argentina of the 1970s and early 1980s, leading into dictatorship and the Falklands War. Combining economic, social and political history, this extensive volume offers new insights into both the historical development of Argentina and of British interests overseas.

Foreign Policy of the European Union towards La...
60,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The study addresses the question of whether or not the EU's foreign policy towards Latin American Southern Cone States (Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay, which created, in 1991, the Southern Cone Common Market - MERCOSUR) has become more cooperative since the mid-to-end 1980s, and why a change, if any, has occurred. It explores recurrent explanatory factors pointed out in the literature (EU's intention to balance the US hegemony, accession of Portugal and Spain to the EU, and the processes of democratization, economic liberalization, and regional integration taking place in the Southern Cone States) in two case studies, foreign direct investment and agricultural trade. The conceptual framework includes hypotheses derived from three theoretical approaches in the discipline of International Relations: Neorealism, Utilitarian Liberalism, and Identity-Constructivism.

EXCHANGE RATE POLICY, CAPITAL CONTROLS, AND ECO...

A computable general equilibrium (CGE) model withfinancial markets was built to simulate the effectsof capital control policies in Argentina underalternative exchange rate regimes. The two types ofcapital control tested are a required reserve depositon short-term capital inflows and a limit on capitalflight. The main channel through which the financialand real sides of the economy interact in this modelis bank lending.For the flexible exchange rate simulations, each typeof capital control has the effect of diminishing theimpact of external financial shocks on keymacroeconomic variables. The introduction of capitalcontrols has the undesirable effect of decreasingprivate national income and investment, in additionto triggering a currency appreciation. It istherefore unclear whether the costs outweigh thebenefits in this setting. The costs of introducingcapital controls in the fixed exchange ratesimulations are lower than in the flexible exchangerate model. While simulations for both capitalcontrol policies yield mixed results in the fixedexchange rate model, each type of control providessome improvements in the model's response to externalshocks.

National Intellectual Capital and the Financial...

In the first decade of the twenty-first century, the biggest event of worldwide proportion was the 2008 global financial crisis, which was caused primarily by ineffective governance, failed surveillance systems, and implementation flaws. While fiscal and monetary policies succeeded in pulling many countries out of a financial freefall, most economies have performed beneath pre-recession levels as governments continued to struggle with their finances.Examining the financial crisis from the viewpoint of intangible assets provides a different perspective from traditional economic approaches. National Intellectual Capital (NIC), comprised mainly of human capital, market capital, process capital, renewal capital, and financial capital, is a valuable intangible asset and a key source of national competitive advantage in today's knowledge economy. The authors-pioneers in the field-present extensive data and a rigorous conceptual framework to analyze the connections between the global financial crisis and NIC development. Covering the period from 2005 to 2010 across 48 countries, the authors establish a positive correlation between NIC and GDP per capita and consider the impact of NIC investment for short-term recovery and long-term risk control and strategy formulation.Each volume in a series of SpringerBriefs on NIC and the financial crisis provides in-depth coverage of the impact of the crisis, the aftermath, future prospects, and policy implications for a regional cluster. This volume focuses on Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Columbia, Mexico, and Venezuela.

Botnia Pulp mill project and migration
50,40 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Finnish Oy Metsä-Botnia Ab began in September 2005 the construction of a pulp mill in Fray Bentos, a town with 23 000 inhabitants in Western Uruguay. The Botnia pulp mill project, more known for the diplomatic crisis between Argentina and Uruguay over the environmental impact of the investment, is in this investigation analyzed for its repercussions on internal migration and a perceived risk of irregular settlements in Fray Bentos. The investigation, a master's thesis, is a background study for an intervention to manage internal migration planned by agencies forming part of the United Nations Country Team for Uruguay, and the local authority counterpart in the Rio Negro-Fray Bentos region in the year 2007. The results suggest, that there is no need for the planned intervention. The Botnia pulp mill project is not likely to lead to permanent internal migration, which would significantly exceed the actual demand for labour. The analysis suggests, that the role of internal migration in the formation of irregular settlements in Uruguay might well be smaller than often assumed.
