More Details..

Barely a week goes by without a new privacy revelation or scandal. Whether by hackers or spy agencies or social networks, violations of our personal information have shaken entire industries, corroded relations among nations, and bred distrust between democratic governments and their citizens. Polls reflect this concern, and show majorities for more, broader, and stricter regulation -- to put more laws "on the books." But there was scant evidence of how well tighter regulation actually worked "on the ground" in changing corporate (or government) behavior -- until now.

This intensive five-nation study goes inside corporations to examine how the people charged with protecting privacy actually do their work, and what kinds of regulation effectively shape their behavior. And the research yields a surprising result. The countries with more ambiguous regulation -- Germany and the United States -- had the strongest corporate privacy management practices, despite very different cultural and legal environments. The more rule-bound countries -- like France and Spain -- trended instead toward compliance processes, not embedded privacy practices. At a crucial time, when Big Data and the Internet of Things are snowballing, Privacy on the Ground helpfully searches out the best practices by corporations, provides guidance to policymakers, and offers important lessons for everyone concerned with privacy, now and in the future.

More Details..

This book aims to answer two questions that are fundamental to the study of agent-based economic models: what is agent-based computational economics and why do we need agent-based economic modelling of economy? This book provides a review of the development of agent-based computational economics (ACE) from a perspective on how artificial economic agents are designed under the influences of complex sciences, experimental economics, artificial intelligence, evolutionary biology, psychology, anthropology and neuroscience.

This book begins with a historical review of ACE by tracing its origins. From a modelling viewpoint, ACE brings truly decentralized procedures into market analysis, from a single market to the whole economy. This book also reviews how experimental economics and artificial intelligence have shaped the development of ACE. For the former, the book discusses how ACE models can be used to analyse the economic consequences of cognitive capacity, personality and cultural inheritance. For the latter, the book covers the various tools used to construct artificial adaptive agents, including reinforcement learning, fuzzy decision rules, neural networks, and evolutionary computation.

This book will be of interest to graduate students researching computational economics, experimental economics, behavioural economics, and research methodology.

More Details..

Innovation generates wealth and helps solve the problems facing humankind. Organizations and societies that are more innovative create more value, growth and jobs. But, despite these obvious and well established benefits, managers, industry leaders and politicians still struggle to find ways to foster innovation, ensure its continuity, and enhance its ability to harness knowledge and resources. It is not uncommon that public policies, competitive strategies and innovation practices designed for these purposes fail to achieve their goals.

This book builds on state of the art thinking and on the empirical observation of renewal processes in several sectors of the economy. By comparing these processes and sorting through their complexities the contributors highlight the core systems, mechanisms and strategies that converge to produce continuous innovation.  The editors argue that strong knowledge and financial resource feedback cycles can emerge around certain types of innovation activities. The resulting book not only advances the theory of innovation dynamics but can also help officials and practitioners to adjust institutional conditions in ways that “de-construct” innovation systems prone to long periods of innovation drought and “reassemble” them into systems with renewal cycles that perpetuate innovation.

More Details..

With the failure of economics to predict the recent economic crisis, the image of economics as a rigorous mathematical science has been subjected to increasing interrogation. One explanation for this failure is that the subject took a wrong turn in its historical trajectory, becoming too mathematical. Using the philosophy of mathematics, this unique book re-examines this trajectory.

Philosophy of Mathematics and Economics re-analyses the divergent rationales for mathematical economics by some of its principal architects. Yet, it is not limited to simply enhancing our understanding of how economics became an applied mathematical science. The authors also critically evaluate developments in the philosophy of mathematics to expose the inadequacy of aspects of mainstream mathematical economics, as well as exploiting the same philosophy to suggest alternative ways of rigorously formulating economic theory for our digital age. This book represents an innovative attempt to more fully understand the complexity of the interaction between developments in the philosophy of mathematics and the process of formalisation in economics.

Assuming no expert knowledge in the philosophy of mathematics, this work is relevant to historians of economic thought and professional philosophers of economics. In addition, it will be of great interest to those who wish to deepen their appreciation of the economic contours of contemporary society. It is also hoped that mathematical economists will find this work informative and engaging.

In this book, Alexander Ebner reconstructs the theory of entrepreneurship from an institutionalist perspective. It provides a fresh account of current theorising on entrepreneurship, specifically addressing Schumpeterian thought as well as Neo-Austrian, Neo-Schumpeterian and evolutionary approaches. A synthesis of these institutionalist arguments allows for outlining a new approach to the theory of entrepreneurship. It conceptualises the innovative generation and coordinative assimilation of technological novelty as an evolutionary process that is marked by paradigmatic qualities. The underlying emphasis on the relationship between institutional and technological change informs a reconsideration of the institutional embeddedness of entrepreneurship.

More Details..

Nearly forty years after passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, a fundamental question remains unanswered: although all citizens have an equal right to the ballot, do all citizens enjoy equal access to the ballot box? More specifically, are voting precincts in predominantly low-income and non-white neighborhoods less visible, less stable, harder to find, and more difficult to navigate than are precincts in high-income and predominantly white neighborhoods? If so, do such lower levels of accessibility result in lower levels of voting, all other things being equal? To investigate this important issue, scholars in cities across the United States participated in a precinct quality study during the November 2004 election. A similar 30-item check list was employed in each of the cities to gauge precinct quality and accessibility. This volume brings together the results and discusses the intricacies of precinct quality in many of America’s largest cities. While Congress has considered standardizing the voting process in all fifty states, the results of this study indicate that vast differences in polling place quality exist not only between but also within cities. More specifically, the analysis reveals that the quality of polling places varies across the diverse neighborhoods of America and that precinct quality affects voter turnout. Low-income and minority communities tend to have lower quality precincts, which tend to depress already low levels of electoral participation.

More Details..

The Randstad metropolitan region encompassing Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht in the western Netherlands is regarded worldwide as a model of a ‘successful’ polycentric metropolis. It is widely cited as an example of an effectively functioning region made up of inter-connected small cities providing complementary functions which together provide the benefits of one larger monocentric city. The methods of strategic spatial planning, regional design and strategic projects are used as models for practitioners and students around the world.

However, the functioning of this cluster of cities as a polycentric networked region is controversial both in terms of the actual relations between its component parts and in terms of the value of promoting such a relationship in policy. In short, does the Randstad really function as a polycentric metropolis? What are the costs and benefits of a Randstad metropolis? Should the concept be pursued in government policy and action and how? These questions are of critical interest within the Netherlands but also in other complex urban regions around the world.

This book will provide explanations of the place of complex city regions in the globalisation process, a critical analysis of the Randstad itself and lessons for strategic planning in other metropolitan regions.
