Examines resistance within Mexican labour unions during a period of sustained crisis and the regional and national level, as well as the level of world order. Gender, having played a central role in the construction of relatively stable historical structures in Mexico, continued to shape the struggles of radical labour movements throughout a period of deepening crisis. Â· Contends that globalisation is not just about the activities of multinational corporations Â· Uses gender as a central concept in analysing Mexico's experience with globalisation Â· Highlights the diversity and rich political history of social movements in Mexico Â· Links regional and national level analysis to world order Studies the contradictory ways in which globalisation is experienced by workers on a local level and how struggles are linked to the ongoing internationalisation of the workplace. Changing material conditions, institutions and ideological forces have been profoundly gendered throughout twentieth century Mexico. Rather than concentrating exclusively on the role of transnational capital and state in advancing globalisation, Healy uncovers the limits and possibilities of working class men and women in transforming the conditions of crisis in which they live.
Political philosophy and feminist theory have rarely examined in detail how capitalism affects the lives of women. Ann Cudd and Nancy Holmstrom take up opposing sides of the issue, debating whether capitalism is valuable as an ideal and whether, as an actually existing economic system, it is good for women. In a discussion covering a broad range of social and economic issues, including unequal pay, industrial reforms, and sweatshops, they examine how these and other issues relate to women and how to analyze effectively what constitutes "capitalism" and "women's interests." Each author also responds to the opposing arguments, providing a thorough debate of the topics covered. The resulting volume will interest a wide range of readers in philosophy, political theory, women's studies and global affairs.
Over the past decade, knowledge assets and intellectual capital have been attracting an increasing amount of attention, not only from academics and CEOs, but also from national policy makers. To date, most studies of intellectual capital have focused at the organizational level, with an emphasis on explaining the role of "intangible assets" as a differentiator between accounting value and market value as a possible source of corporate competitive advantage. More recently, pioneers in the field, including the authors of this book, have begun to apply these methodologies to a broader scope, with the objective of comparing the intellectual capital indices at the national or regional level. As a result, an increasing number of world organizations and researchers are commissioned to investigate this future-oriented crucial national issue. Yet, the linkage between the value of intangible assets and how to quantify or benchmark it is still tenuous, not to mention easily misunderstood by a layman for guiding better decision making. With the belief that numbers talk and statistics hide valuable information, this book serves to present the authors' research findings, covering 14 years (1995-2008) of intellectual capital information, comprised of human capital, market capital, process capital, renewal capital, and financial capital for 40 countries. The last three chapters go beyond analysis of current intellectual capital factors, and present practical tools for launching initiatives at the national level. The book will serve as an essential resource for researchers, policy makers, and business leaders concerned with issues of economic growth and competitiveness, innovation, and business creation.
