The Turkish economy and society have been the subject of neoliberal agenda since , in the crucial first three years under conditions of military dictatorship.
In contrast to the traditional stabilization packages that aimed at devaluation to restrain domestic demand , the new orthodoxy aimed at maintaining high interest rates for the purpose of attracting speculative foreign capital from the international financial markets. Starting with a direct intervention to the legal system with a new constitution and a thoroughly revised Labour Law that radically limited the rights of the working classes and trade unions in the immediate aftermath of the military intervention, a series of administrative regulatory bodies were established, each with a specific task of specialization and with almost no democratic accountability.
Overall, average annual rate of growth was 4. This was well below the rates achieved during the earlier ISI period with 6. Following the capital account liberalization of , sudden stops and reversals of capital inflows led to two deep crises in and and a deep recession in The focus of the conference is Turkey. However papers on other countries that draw comparisons with — and implications for - Turkey are welcome. So are papers that put forwards alternative perspectives and explanations.
We invite contributions in the following areas. The list is indicative rather than prescriptive. Relevant papers in related fields will be considered. This is an important event in which over 50 associations and more than 11, economists and students from around the world take part. Although mainstream associations are dominant in number, heterodox associations have engaged in a number of scholarly and social activities which are crucial for the continuation and growth of heterodox economics.
The purpose of holding this booth is to visibly show that there is an alternative to mainstream-neoclassical economics, to improve the publicity of heterodox economics, and, hence, to confront the giant elephant in the room. This booth is located in the conference headquarter hotel along with major publishers and associations. We would like to share this space with heterodox economic associations not limited to U. Please let us know if you are interested or if you have any questions. Reserving an exhibition booth is not free. So there will be a small amount of shared fee, which is not fixed until we know the number of participating associations and journals.

Increasingly, European citizens are resisting against water privatisation and commercialisation through local campaigns, national referenda, Europe-wide petitions and other forms of social mobilisation.
Increasingly, European citizens are supporting the remunicipalisation of water and sanitation services for a variety of considerations: social, environmental, economic and political. These developments elicit a number of fundamental questions on decision making in the water sector. Is the pendulum swinging back towards public ownership of water services? And what prompts society to accept or reject decisions taken on their behalf by technocrats and politicians?
We reflect around those issues starting from allied and complementary perspectives: anthropology, economics, and political science. Attendance is free but places are limited.

The present decade marks the bicentennial anniversary of the major publications of David Ricardo, one of the most powerful and original authors in political economy. In supplement and as a prelude to this event, the conference will be preceded, on September 9th, , by a day of lectures and debates around the work of David Ricardo in order to promote the Ricardo studies among PhD students and young research fellows. Find further details including the conference program at the conference website. Politics and markets are regarded as indispensable categories for understanding modern societies, but the relationship between them takes many forms.
Much debate has been focused on whether markets can exist independently of politics or whether they are dependent on politics to construct and sustain them, but there are also a number of more particular questions about the role of markets in public services and in particular areas of public policy.
Markets are ubiquitous in the modern world, and tend constantly to spread to new spheres, creating moral and political anxieties, and recurring dilemmas for policy-makers. Markets are not a neutral technical means of allocating resources; they also have normative implications for behaviour and for social relationships.
Some of these issues are explored through an examination of the recent financial crisis and its aftermath, asking whether this was a failure of markets or a failure of politics. The lecture is to be followed by discussion and a drinks reception and networking. Attendance is free, though places are limited and advanced booking is required via Eventbrite by the 3rd of June www. For further information, please contact Tom Mills, University of Westminster t.

Meanwhile, members of the professional elite—journalists, managers, and establishment politicians--are on the outside looking in, left to argue over the reasons.
Williams, described as having "something approaching rock star status" by the New York Times, explains why so much of the elite's analysis of the white working class is misguided, rooted in class cluelessness. Williams explains that many people have conflated "working class" with "poor"--but the working class is, in fact, the elusive, purportedly disappearing middle class. They often resent the poor and the professionals alike. But they don't resent the truly rich, nor are they particularly bothered by income inequality.
Their dream is not to join the upper middle class, with its different culture, but to stay true to their own values in their own communities--just with more money. While white working-class motivations are often dismissed as racist or xenophobic, Williams shows that they have their own class consciousness. White Working Class is a blunt, bracing narrative that sketches a nuanced portrait of millions of people who have proven to be a potent political force. For anyone stunned by the rise of populist, nationalist movements, wondering why so many would seemingly vote against their own economic interests, or simply feeling like a stranger in their own country, White Working Class will be a convincing primer on how to connect with a crucial set of workers--and voters.
The United States is in the process of staking out not just the globe but the last unarmed spot in our neighborhood-the heavens-as a militarized sphere of influence. Our earth and its skies are, for the Bush administration, the final frontiers of imperial control. In Hegemony or Survival , Noam Chomsky investigates how we came to this moment, what kind of peril we find ourselves in, and why our rulers are willing to jeopardize the future of our species. With the striking logic that is his trademark, Chomsky dissects America's quest for global supremacy, tracking the U.
He lays out vividly how the various strands of policy-the militarization of space, the ballistic-missile defense program, unilateralism, the dismantling of international agreements, and the response to the Iraqi crisis-cohere in a drive for hegemony that ultimately threatens our survival. In our era, he argues, empire is a recipe for an earthly wasteland.
Lucid, rigorous, and thoroughly documented, Hegemony or Survival promises to be Chomsky's most urgent and sweeping work in years, certain to spark widespread debate. Engage with fellow readers of Introducing Globalization on the book's Facebook page at www. But the market is booming: In , more people in the United States bought recreational drugs than ever before. To get the story and connect the dogs, acclaimed journalist John Gibler travels across Mexico and slips behind the frontlines to talk with people who live in towns under assault: newspaper reporters and crime-beat photographers, funeral parlor workers, convicted drug traffickers, government officials, cab drivers and others who find themselves living on the lawless frontiers of the drug war.
Gibler tells hair-raising stories of wild street battles, kidnappings, narrow escapes, politicians on the take, and the ordinary people who fight for justice as they seek solutions to the crisis that is tearing Mexico apart. Fast-paced and urgent, To Die in Mexico is an extraordinary look inside the raging drug war, and its global implications. At great personal risk, the author unearths stories the mainstream media doesn't—or is it too afraid—to cover, and gives voice to those who have been silenced or whose stories have been forgotten. A visceral, immediate and reasonable argument.
Throughout this short but powerful book, Gibler accompanies journalists riding the grim carousel of death on Mexico's streets, exploring the realities of a profession under siege in states such as Sinaloa and just how they cover the drugs war. Friedman crisscrosses the globe talking with the world's economic and political leaders, and reporting, as only he can, on what he sees.
Now he has used his years of experience as a reporter and columnist to produce a pithy, trenchant, riveting look at the worldwide market forces that are driving today's economies and how they are playing out both internationally and locally. Globalization is the technologically driven expression of free-market capitalism, and as such is essentially an American creation.
It has irrevocably changed the way business is done and has raised living standards throughout the world. But powerful local forces-of religion, race, ethnicity, and cultural identity-are in competition with technology for the hearts and minds of their societies. Finding the proper balance between the Lexus and the olive tree is the great game of globalization-and the ultimate theme of Friedman's challenging, provocative book, essential reading for all who care about how the world really works. Engaging applications bring the theory and practice of modern econometrics to life.

Joseph E. Stiglitz offers here an agenda of inventive solutions to our most pressing economic, social, and environmental challenges, with each proposal guided by the fundamental insight that economic globalization continues to outpace both the political structures and the moral sensitivity required to ensure a just and sustainable world.

Pedro Aspe Armella. The essays brought together in this volume share a common objective: To bring a unifying methodological approach to the analysis of financial problems in developing, open economies.
While the primary focus is on contemporary Latin America, the methods employed and the lessons learned are of wider applicability. The papers address the financial integration issue from three different perspectives. In some cases, a country study is the vehicle for an econometric investigation of a particular external linkage. In other cases, an individual country's experience suggests an economic model in which the stylized facts may be analyzed and developed.
A third direction is unabashedly theoretical and formulates more general principles which are broadly applicable rather than country-specific.
