Economic Crises And Policy Change In The Early 1980s: A Four Country Comparison, John Hogan

Articles

This article examines the impact of economic crises on macroeconomic

policies in the United States (US), Mexico, Ireland, and Sweden at the

start of the 1980s, framed within the context of the policy change

literature. These countries are selected for examination as they

encompass presidential, parliamentary, republican, constitutional

monarchical, federal and unitary systems of governance. Two are

European states and two are from the Americas: two are large economies

while two are small.

Each country’s response to the crisis affecting it, tempered by historical

and political factors, provides an insight into that political economy.

These findings enable us compare ...

República E Monarquia: Desfazendo Confusões, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2010 Universidade do Porto

República E Monarquia: Desfazendo Confusões, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Há pelo menos três sentidos essencias da palavra República... Se os confundirmos, estamos perdidos, nunca nos entenderemos. O sentido mais profícuo é o material ou substancial e intermédio: nem o que diz que todas as sociedades políticas o são (sentido hoje quase esquecido), nem o que identifica formalmente as repúblicas com todas as sociedades que não têm rei, sem lhes verificar requisitos éticos. Há um "quid" especial nas Repúblicas para quem é republicano. E que não tem nada a ver com o que nelas vêem os monárquicos ou os indiferentes (?)...

Today we will present the results of a unique survey that attempts to answer these questions.

In Memoriam: Gil Friedman, Harvey Starr 2010 University of South Carolina

In Memoriam: Gil Friedman, Harvey Starr

Faculty Publications

Gil Friedman, lecturer in political science at Tel Aviv University, passed away on July 16, 2009, at the age of 42 after a short bout with cancer. Much too young, and with so much promise, Gil's death was an unexpected shock to his relatives, friends, and colleagues. His loss is all the more tragic because those who knew Gil were struck by his seemingly boundless energy, his enormous intellectual curiosity, his constant stream of ideas, and his incredible work ethic—all fed by a seemingly insatiable desire to read everything (ever) written in the areas of his current interest.
