Economic Governance and Globalization

Transfinancial Economics
¤ Robert Searle ¤ 28 July 2013
Essentially, Transfinancial Economics model (TFE) claims that new largely monitored non-repayable money could be created electronically by special transparent, and credible funding mechanisms, or Facilitation Banks (and/or by governments to some extent).

Beyond the Numbers
¤ Arzu Hatakoy, Ely Ratner, Jeff Colgan, Joel Sandhu, Katrin Kinzelbach, Liang Wang, Shixin Jiao, Zachary Wasserman ¤ 17 November 2011
The current framework of global nuclear governance is overly focused on numbers: numbers of nuclear weapons and numbers of nuclear states. While we readily accept the importance of this emphasis, we also believe that the problems of numbers are terribly difficult to resolve and are drawing attention and resources away from alternative efforts to contribute to nonproliferation and nuclear security.

The Challenge of Environmental Governance
¤ Germà Pelayo ¤ 3 December 2009
The United Nations Climate Summit (Copenhagen, December 7-18, 2009) is our last chance to obtain an indispensable agreement to renew and deepen the Kyoto Protocol, which runs to 2012 and has turned out to be insufficient to deal with the disastrous evolution of climate change, with environmental deterioration now worse, in some cases, than the most ominous forecasts. In the lead-up the summit, the heads of the main industrial powers, including for the first time China, have entered into a (...) read more
