17 Disinvestment in India: Policies, Procedures, Practices

Sudhir Naib

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2004, 0-7619-9825-X / 9780761998259, First Edition, Cloth, New, New, 5.5" x 8.5" 
In India the path chosen to reform the public sector has been to first deregulate and liberalise the economy and then to privatise public sector enterprises. Debates have raged on since then on: whether reform of state-owned enterprises is necessary; the choice of strategy and method; and the social and economic consequences of such policies. Sudhir Naib has incisively analysed, from a theoretically informed perspective, crucial aspects of this topical issue. Among the important aspects he discusses are: - Whether the failure of Indian public enterprises has been exaggerated. - Can public enterprises be reformed from within or are they intrinsically inefficient? - Is a change in ownership the only solution? - Impact of ownership and competition on the efficiency of Indian enterprises. - Methods of privatisation and the experience of other countries. - Impact of divestiture on performance of disinvested enterprises. Dr Naib provides a firm-level analysis through case studies of seven partly disinvested enterprises (SAIL, BHEL, IOC, ITI, BEL, BEML, NFL). Impact of post-reform policies on enterprises is analysed in terms of changes in market share, cost structure, profitability and work culture. The strategic response of these enterprises is examined in terms of cost reduction measures, change in product portfolio, restructuring, innovation and institutional arrangement for diagnosing environmental changes.

European Integration: Trade and Industry, L. Alan Winters and Anthony Venables (eds.)
21 European Integration: Trade and Industry

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 1993, 0-521-01262-7 / 9780521012621, Paperback, New, 
Much recent research has been devoted to the consequences of the completion of the European internal market in 1992. Existing estimates of the effects of market integration remain exploratory, however, and many important issues have yet to be adequately addressed. These are the issues concerning this book. Edited by L. Alan Winters and Anthony Venables, the volume examines such questions as the extent of gains to be expected from both ‘internal?and ‘external?economies of scale following integration, the implications of 1992 for the European Community’s trade with its traditional EFTA partners, the potentially valuable new East European markets, and the rest of the world. There are also chapters considering the implications of the internal market for the design of appropriate technology and taxation policies, and a study of the role of Japanese foreign direct investment in European manufacturing. Contents 1. Completing the internal market in the European Community: factor demands and comparative advantage Michael Gasiorek, Alasdair Smith and Antony Venables; 2. External effects and Europe’s integration Riccardo Caballero and Richard Lyons; 3.

35 Landlords and Property: Social Relations in the Private Rented Sector

John Allen and Linda McDowell

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 1989, 0-521-36028-5 / 9780521360289, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, Fine, 16 Cms x 24 Cms 
The issue of private landlordism in Britain touches a raw political nerve. There is no shortage of prescription as to what should be done with the rented housing market and private landlords. Yet surprisingly little is known about the structure and diversity of private landlordism and the variety of private tenants?housing needs - a prerequisite for policy intervention. This book provides an anatomy of the nature of private landlordism in the 1980s, the types of landlord in the market, the scope of their activities, and the choices and constraints that guide their actions in the market. It shows how the pattern of change in the private rented sector has been not one of straightforward decline, but one of structural unevenness shaped by a combination of three general processes - disinvestment, investment and informalization - which vary in impact from place to place. Adopting a realist methodological approach, the authors attempt to capture both the general characterisation of landlordism and the processes shaping the private rental sector and their diverse geographical form across space and through time. This approach is illustrated by an extensive and inrenting in two local housing markets in inner London. Finally, the authors examine the scope for change in the private rented sector and argue for a combination of public and private initiatives that is sensitive to the differences among local housing markets and that relates to the demands/needs of those groups at present dependent on private renting for accommodation. Contents List of figures and tables; Preface; 1. Introduction; 2. private landlords: the anatomy of uneven decline; 3. The structure of private landlordism; 4.

Innovation is a key to corporate success, particularly in times of rapid technological change. This book sheds new light on the introduction of technology in the manufacturing sector. The author considers the use of innovative technology in both Britain and Japan by examining nine firms in each country. He focuses on computerised machine tools (CNC) and shows how the various firms have risen to the challenge of implementing the new technology. Particular emphasis is placed on the differing employment relations in the factories, the nature of operating training and workload distribution. Dr Whittaker identifies fundamentally different approaches in the two countries which have implications for competiveness as well as future innovation. The contrast is especially attractive since Japanese industrial relations is commonly distinguished by its cooperative nature whilst industrial relations in Britain has tended to be more confrontational. These conventional views are challenged with an original perspective on the labour process and new technology. The book will be of major interest to specialists in technical innovation and industrial relations. Managers eager to learn the practical lessons of a comparison between British and Japanese work habits will also learn much from reading this book. Contents Introduction; 1. British factories, Japanese factories and the new technology debate; 2. The wider context; 3. Employment relations (I); 4. Employment relations (II); 5. Innovation; 6. Training; 7.

43 Maritime Traders in the Ancient Greek World

This is the first full work since Hasebroek’s Trade and Politics in the Ancient World to deal directly with the place of maritime traders in ancient Greece. Its main assumption is that traders?juridical, economic, political, and unofficial standing can only be viewed correctly through the lens of the polis framework. It argues that those engaging in inter-regional trade with classical Athens were mainly poor and foreign (hence politically inert at Athens). Moreover, Athens, as well as other classical Greek poleis, resorted to limited measures, well short of war or other modes of economic imperialism, to attract them. However, at least in the minds of individual Athenians considerations of traders?indispensability to Athens displaced what otherwise would have been low estimations of their social status. Contents 1. Coming to terms; 2. Classical modes and patterns of exchange; 3. The juridical place of maritime traders; 4. The level of wealth of maritime traders; 5. Official attitudes toward maritime traders; 6. Unofficial attitudes toward maritime traders; 7. Archaic modes of exchange and the personnel involved, c. 800?75 BC; 8. Conclusion: then and now; Appendices. Printed Pages: 176. 009460
