Beschreibung

In the autumn of 1990 there was a sense of change taking place in the world economy. Readiness for war was occurrin~ in the Middle East and a recession was already underway in a few major countries. The forces of reform and political re-shaping were visible in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union. We economists, gathering in Osaka, Japan, under the auspices of the International Institute for Advanced Studies (Kyoto) could recognize that the Cold War was over and that politico-economic restructuring would take place among the powers in the Warsaw Treaty Organization. Much has happened since the latter part of 1990 to affect international economic stability. The events of that period were both positive and negative for economic stability, but our concern was weighted towards the negative side. Dur charge and sponsorship was scholarly, and the papers from the learned contributors to the symposium and this resulting volume used the many tools of economic analysis to try to understand the ongoing developments. In the intervening period, while this volume was being prepared and edited, we did not cnange our viewpoints in any fundamental way, and we can take satisfaction in the way our symposium either relates to the unfolding sequence of events in a substantive sense or provides a framework in which to study these events.

Klappentext

The world economy has been undergoing substantial change, especially from restructuring among formerly planned economies, developing economies and also among developed economies where serious imbalances occurred. In adapting to these changes, the economies of the world have shown a great deal of instability. A Quest for a More Stable Economic System offers thoughtful analyses of ways to understand and rectify these instabilities. The contributions were prepared just as the Gulf War was beginning and as the economies of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union were undergoing successive change. The early analyses and diagnoses of what was happening to the world economy, as described, have well stood the test of time. The book brings to the students, teachers and research workers of economics objective investigations of the dynamic processes of adjustment and an appreciation where a new world economic order is heading.

In the intervening period, while this volume was being prepared and edited, we did not cnange our viewpoints in any fundamental way, and we can take satisfaction in the way our symposium either relates to the unfolding sequence of events in a substantive sense or provides a framework in which to study these events.
