An Economic Analysis of Public Good Provision i...
55,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Adequate access to public goods plays an important role in the economic and rural development of any country. For the transition countries, however, providing public goods is particularly problematic owing to several factors associated with the transition process itself, e.g. economic recession and a change in ownership of local public goods. Taking Russia as an example, this study examines the effect of the transition process on rural households' access to public goods. With reference to education and health care, household access to public goods is addressed in terms of community availability and economic access. The analysis is taken a step further, through an examination of the role of informal institutions in public good provision. Multiple regression analysis was used to test for the significance of income as a determinant of private expenditures on public goods. The results indicate that, contrary to expectations, neither income nor informal payments are important determinants of access to public goods. Informal institutions continue to exert a strong influence on the provision of public goods.

External Factors of Economic Growth
81,30 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In the context of increasing interrelatedness of economies, foreign trade and capital flows may prove crucial when considering their growth perspectives. This assertion is corroborated by contrasting growth experiences of the Baltic and Central Asian transition economies, which have undergone significant transformations in terms of their economic structure and trade patterns since the early 1990s. This book inquires into the role external factors play in the process of economic growth in the transition economies of the Baltics and Central Asia. With the help of the balance of payments constrained growth model, the economies in question are compared in terms of their growth constituents contributing shares. The author infers that higher growth rates observed in the Baltic economies compared to those in the Central Asian economies in the period from 1994 to 2005 are due to larger values of a compound of exports growth, capital inflows and relative price developments. Growth differences within the two regions are explained in a similar manner. This book may equally be of interest to practicing professionals and those from academia.

EQUITY AND HEALTH CARE IN TRANSITION
81,30 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The collapse of the communist regimes in Central and Eastern Europe heralded the beginning of an economic transition from central planning to market economies. The subsequent period was marked by malfunctioning of these countries social sectors, including their health care systems, raising serious issues of equity. This book examines the impact of the transition period and the introduction of social insurance on equity in health care provision in Bulgaria. Equity in health care is investigated with respect to function - i.e. financing and delivery - and outcomes - i.e. health status, income inequality and poverty. The methodology provides new ways of modelling health care financing and delivery. The book concludes that social insurance does not provide a uniform means of improving equity and that the root cause of the problem lies in the large proportion of out-of-pocket payments and the rather limited size of the health insurance sector. The data suggests that there are differences between socio-economic groups as regards their likelihood to seek treatment for their ill health, which result in differences in their health status.

This open access book tells the story of how Sweden is becoming a virtually cashless society. Its goal is to improve readers' understanding of what is driving this transition, and of the factors that are fostering and hampering it. In doing so, the book covers the role of central banks, political factors, needs for innovation, and the stakeholders involved in developing a cashless ecosystem. Adopting a historical standpoint, and drawing on a unique dataset, it presents an academic perspective on Sweden's leading role in this global trend.The global interest in the future of cash payments makes the Swedish case particularly interesting. As a country that is close to becoming a cashless economy, it offers a role model for many other countries to learn from - whether they want to stimulate or reduce the use of cash. This highly topical book will be of interest to politicians, researchers, businesses, financial service providers and payment service providers, as well as fintech start-ups, regulators and other authorities.
