Nutrition Economics: Principles and Policy Applications establishes the core criteria for consideration as new policies and regulations are developed, including application-based principles that ensure practical, effective implementation of policy. From the economic contribution of nutrition on quality of life, to the costs of malnutrition on society from both an individual and governmental level, this book guides the reader through the factors that can determine the success or failure of a nutrition policy. Written by an expert in policy development, and incorporating an encompassing view of the factors that impact nutrition from an economic standpoint (and their resulting effects), this book is unique in its focus on guiding other professionals and those in advanced stages of study to important considerations for correct policy modeling and evaluation. As creating policy without a comprehensive understanding of the relevant contributing factors that lead to failure is not an option, this book provides a timely reference. Connects the direct and indirect impacts of economic policy on nutritional status Provides practical insights into the analysis of nutrition policies and programs that will produce meaningful results Presents a hands-on approach on how to apply economic theory to the design of nutritional policies and programs

The Economics of Global Environment

Catastrophic Risks in Theory and Policy

This is the first book combining research on the Global Environment, Catastrophic Risks and Economic Theory and Policy. Modern economic theory originated in the middle of the twentieth century when industrial expansion coupled with population growth led to a voracious use of natural resources and global environmental concerns. It is uncontested that, for the first time in recorded history, humans dominate the planet, changing the planet's atmosphere, its bodies of water, and the complex web of species that makes life on earth. This radical change in circumstances led to rethinking of the foundations of human organization and, in particular, the industrial economy and the economic theory behind it. This book brings together new approaches on multiple levels: environmental sustainability requires rethinking in terms of economic theory and policy as well as the considerations of catastrophic risk and extremal events. Leading experts address questions of economic governance, risk management, policy decision making and distribution across time and space. ​

Economics for the Built Environment

View: 3929

Many economics texts for built environment students start with a general introduction to economic theory, which students find difficult to apply to their field of study. 'Economics for the Built Environment' avoids this approach by involving construction from the beginning, using relevant examples to introduce and illustrate topics in economics. This book sets out to explain how 'real world' issues of construction and property can be understood by the correct application of economic theory. It includes large amounts of empirical analysis and examples, which set it apart from most texts currently available on the subject. Economics for the Built Environment is suitable for first and second year degree and diploma students of a wide range of built environment disciplines; building, construction management, building surveying, land economy, land management, estate management, and planning.

This textbook presents worked-out exercises on game theory with detailed step-by-step explanations. While most textbooks on game theory focus on theoretical results, this book focuses on providing practical examples in which students can learn to systematically apply theoretical solution concepts to different fields of economics and business. The text initially presents games that are required in most courses at the undergraduate level and gradually advances to more challenging games appropriate for masters level courses. The first six chapters cover complete-information games, separately analyzing simultaneous-move and sequential-move games, with applications in industrial economics, law, and regulation. Subsequent chapters dedicate special attention to incomplete information games, such as signaling games, cheap talk games, and equilibrium refinements, emphasizing common steps and including graphical illustrations to focus students’ attention on the most relevant payoff comparisons at each point of the analysis. In addition, exercises are ranked according to their difficulty, with a letter (A-C) next to the exercise number. This allows students to pace their studies and instructors to structure their classes accordingly. By providing detailed worked-out examples, this text gives students at various levels the tools they need to apply the tenets of game theory in many fields of business and economics. This text is appropriate for introductory-to-intermediate courses in game theory at the upper undergraduate and master’s level.

Yvon Chouinard ist Unternehmer wider Willen. Eigentlich wollte er nur Klettern und Surfen – und trotzdem baute er ein Multimillionen-Dollar-Unternehmen auf. In seiner Jugend verbrachte er viel Zeit in der Natur und ließ sich von seinem Vater das Schmiedehandwerk beibringen. Als begeisterter Kletterer entwickelte und verkaufte er sein eigenes Equipment, dessen Design sich bis heute kaum verändert hat. Nach und nach erweiterte er die Palette seines Angebots, wobei er und seine Mitarbeiter keine besondere Strategie verfolgten: Jeder tat, was nötig war – und worauf er Lust hatte. Aus dieser Mentalität entstand im Lauf der Zeit das erfolgreiche Unternehmen Patagonia. In dieser neu überarbeiteten Auflage zum 10-jährigen Jubiläum der Originalausgabe zeigt Yvon Chouinard – legendärer Kletterer, Geschäftsmann, Umweltschützer und Gründer von Patagonia, Inc. – wie seine eigene Lebensphilosophie zum erfolgreichen Unternehmensleitbild wurde und was Patagonia zu einem der am meisten respektierten und umweltbewussten Unternehmen der Erde machte. Lass die Mitarbeiter surfen gehen ist ein Buch, das sowohl für Unternehmer als auch Outdoor-Enthusiasten gleichermaßen beeindruckend ist.

Page: 305

View: 8152

This text provides upper-level undergraduate students with an international managerial perspective that concisely integrates both market (i.e., industry structure) and nonmarket (i.e., political forces) analysis. Conklin teaches students how to understand the impact of environmental forces on the firm’s profitability, how to prioritize both risks and opportunities, how to analyze the relationships among them, and how to recommend firm responses to them to maximize MNE profitability. Key Features Environmental forces and their interrelationships are clearly organized and analyzed under four broad themes: social, technological, economic, and political forces. Each issue is clearly correlated to real management decision-making in chapter introductions, which discuss the strategies and management practices required to respond effectively to various environmental forces. Students learn to assess the changes in environmental forces over time and to ascertain the relative attractiveness of various nations as alternative sites for conducting business. Chapter-opening lists of critical skills and capabilities provide a focus and guide for the material in the chapter, relating theories to practical applications. Chapter-ending case excerpts with discussion questions provide illustrative real-world situations related to issues presented in that chapter and challenge students to come up with their own recommended solutions.
