Better Business Regulation In A Risk Society

RRP $546.99

The premise of this volume is that business regulations are expected to grow in the near future as a consequence of the emergence of a "(world) risk society". Risks related to terrorism, climate change, and financial crises, for example, will penetrate all conditions of life. Increasingly, the decisions and actions of some bring about risks for many in this era of globalization. Controlling these risks implies managing the world through high-quality regulation, with a particular emphasis on businesses and financial institutions. Central to this approach is the argument that a major, if not the primary, aim of regulation is to internalize externalities, or in a broader context, to repair market failure. Such repair can only be accomplished when the costs are smaller than the welfare gains. Featuring contributions from researchers and policy analysts from the fields of economics, management, law, sociology, political science, and environmental policy, this book focuses on three major topics: social risks and business regulation; preconditions for better business regulation; and, theoretical issues related to better business regulation. Collectively, the authors demonstrate that the easier it is for regulated businesses to comply at the lowest costs possible - without jeopardizing the related public goals - the greater the degree of compliance. When successful, the net result is a balance of individual and collective net benefits, and by further implication, sustainable business practice and economic growth.


Marketing Japanese Style

RRP $326.99

The Japanese are not the world's greatest marketers. Japanese companies approach and perform marketing within Japan differently than Western firms do within their domestic markets. In fact, marketing to the average Japanese firm is not a priority item. To succeed in Japan, they concentrate instead on production quality and low prices. This fascinating look at the cultural differences, reflected in their marketing practices, reveals the advantages and disadvantages of Japanese marketing practices. The author argues that as the advantages of a protected market and superior production and technology disappear, the Japanese must develop a new marketing process. Examples of both Japanese and foreign firms operating in Japan highlight each section. Marketing Japanese Style examines how Japanese firms actually market to their Japanese customers. Each of the four Ps of marketing-product, promotion, place, and price-are explored. Japanese cultural, strategic, and negotiation practices are described in detail. An interesting facet of the book is the analysis of keiretsu and sogo shosha, and their place in the marketing structure.
