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.

Social Rights and Market Forces

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

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.

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.

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.

A wise and humorous memoir about a young economist trying to apply the rules of the market to his own floundering love life. A wise and humorous memoir about a young economist trying to apply the rules of the market to his own floundering dating life. “I know that this sounds like a bit of a cliché, but really, it’s not you…” The woman who said this to William Nicolson was funny, talented and unbearably beautiful. His mother said he ought to marry that girl. And he lost her in a personal best time of six weeks. It was when he found himself being dumped like this yet again that he decided something had to be done. William is an economist, which means he’s good at reducing an infinitely complex world into a set of clear, rational principles about the way people and markets behave. Unfortunately, he has never been able to replicate this in the world of romance. Girls confuse him; they’re the very definition of infinite complexity. In this book, he sets out to apply the rules of economics to his shaky love life. For a time, everything seems to be clearer. Want to play hard to get? Reduce your supply. Want a girlfriend? Find an undervalued asset. Why are all the good ones taken? That’ll be the Efficient Market Hypothesis. But things don’t work out quite as he’d hoped, and he’s more isolated than ever. Can he find the perfect economic theory to rescue him from a future of lonely nights, or is the dating game too intricate to be won by logical, rational thinking?

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 Rise of Market Forces

This Note reviews the altered role of market forces, considers their future prospects, and reflects on what U.S. policies toward market forces should be. The rise of market forces around the world in the past decade has made the international economic landscape of the 1990s fundamentally different from that of earlier decades, raising anew the cardinal policy issue of the appropriate roles and relative scale of government and markets--to what extent should markets or governments determine the allocation, use, and distribution of resources? The author discusses market-oriented policies in the "three worlds" (the industrialized nations, communist countries, and developing nations), and reasons for the rise of market forces, and outlines relevant policies and implications.
