Along with the rest of the Civil Service, Customs & Excise are required by Government to market test some of their activities in competition with private sector firms. As the majority of market tests are in the Outfield, Nick Storey keeps a careful eye on how they are proceeding, especially ones where he believes Collectors may be trying to fiddle the results. He also suspects some of the private sector bidders of collusion. As the results come in, it becomes plain that not just that some bids have been fiddled and there is collusion, but that someone in the Department has leaked details to some of the external competitors. Detailed analysis and Rosemary going under cover in one of the private sector bidders identifies the people doing the leaking. Then the politics takes over, of course. Market Forces? is the twenty-second book in a series of detective stories set in HM Customs & Excise, by Richard Hernaman Allen, a former Commissioner.

Neoliberalism and Market Forces in Education provides a wide perspective on the dramatic transformation of education policy in Sweden that has taken place during the last 30 years, with a specific focus on marketization. The marketization of education in Sweden is set in the wider international context of changes in education systems. With contributions from researchers across a wide range of scientific disciplines, the book provides examples of the consequences of market orientation in education in terms of increase in inequality as well as in terms of what the market orientation means for principals, teachers and students. It considers how Sweden has developed one of the most marketized education systems in the world and the possible consequences of such processes, as identified by research. Neoliberalism and Market Forces in Education will be of great interest to educational practitioners, politicians, scholars in the field, and postgraduate and research students in education.

Designed as a primary text for courses in health care economics and policy analysis, this comprehensive work places the issues and economic analysis of the health care industry in the context of market forces driving the industry, including negotiated markets, managed care, and the growing influence of oligopolies. Written in accessible prose, without the aid of technical jargon and mathematical formulations, the content is rich with applicable, understandable economic concepts and analysis, and examples of market failure and government involvement. Some of the major policy issues covered are drug pricing, Medicare and Medicaid reform, the medically uninsured, for-profit hospital monopoly price power, managed care competitive pricing, and new negotiated markets. The relevant economic concepts employed in the text include price elasticity of demand/supply, market structure from competitive to oligopolistic markets, monopoly pricing power, measures of health care inflation and the biases of the CPI, demand and supply factors, inverse relationship of present health care expenditures as a percentage of GDP, measures/concepts of efficiency, and the role of government in a market era.

Is the Open Coordination of Employment and Social Policies the Future of Social Europe?

Author: Olivier de Schutter,Simon F. Deakin

This collection of essays examines the development of new modes of governance in the European Union, asking whether - and under which conditions - these new modes of governance offer a way out of the dilemmas which have plagued debates on 'Social Europe' since the very creation of the European Economic Community, and whether they may inspire developments in other fields. We focus in particular on the open method of coordination, both as an element of the European Employment Strategy and as a tool in the social policy. The open method of coordination is one of a number of new governance mechanisms which seek to foster mutual learning between the Member States and to limit the phenomenon of competitive deregulation in the internal market, while at the same time respecting the diversity of national practices and the existing division of powers between the European Community and the Member States. We sought to confront the practice of the open method of coordination with a number of different approaches to collective action proposed within the current debate on modes of governance. Our hypothesis was that the notion of 'reflexive governance' might serve to identify existing limitations of the current model under which the open method of coordination functions, and to help us come up with possible solutions for overcoming these limitations, especially as the open method of coordination may expand to other policy areas.

This book provides a comparative perspective on employment deconcentration within selected European metropolitan areas. The book introduces a comparative framework, followed by eight chapter-length case studies: three based in northern Europe, three in the south European-Mediterranean region and two in post-Communist central Europe. Most chapters examine two metropolitan areas, usually a large and a smaller one. The comparison reveals considerable variations in the magnitude, form, and process of employment deconcentration.

The increasing liberalization and globalisation of the world economy has not been accompanied by covergence in the various indicators of economic and social development. The papers in this volume go some way towards explaining why the increasing reliance on market forces may lead to greater divergences in economic performance. They also point to the importance for the development process of social solidarity and institutions which encourage co-operative approaches to problem solving.

The Market Forces in Adoption

The controversies in adoption have extended across a spectrum of policy and practice issues, and although the issues have become clear, resolution has not been achieved nor has consensus developed regarding a framework on which to improve the quality of adoption policy and practice. This book is the second in a series to use an ethics-based framework for analyzing and resolving these complex challenges in adoption while avoiding the divisiveness that has heretofore impeded their resolution. This book considers various aspects of the business of adoption in terms of market factors. With the shifting demographics of infant adoption, international adoption, and special needs adoption, issues are raised in this book about the role of money in adoption, who holds the "power" in adoption, and to whom adoption professionals are accountable. Questions examined in the book include the extent to which there has been a commodification of children placed with adoptive families, how the adoption process is regulated and by whom, the impact of resources on the roles of birth and adoptive parents, the relevance of accountability in adoption, and how market forces undermine ethical adoption practice. The book concludes by noting that although powerful market forces are in play, professionals from all fields of adoption are raising questions about the ethics of current practice and are challenging policies that may have been tolerated, and therefore, the environment may be ready for reshaping the forces that drive adoption.
