The Rule of Law in Monetary Affairs

Author: Thomas Cottier
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 9781316061695
Release Date: 2014-08-29
Genre: Law

The global financial crisis and subsequent sovereign debt crisis in Europe demonstrated that the relationship between law and economics in the design of the monetary system must be revisited. International monetary affairs are usually conducted via domestic monetary policies which are formulated by independent central banks and informed mainly by economics, without much room being left to substantive law. Based on the 2012 World Trade Forum, this volume brings together leading scholars, practitioners and policy makers in international economic law in order to examine the potential of law and legal methodology to contribute to international monetary stability. It explores the links between and lessons to be learnt from existing international investment and trading systems and studies some specific policy issues which have a direct impact on monetary affairs, such as exchange rate policy, sovereign debt, taxation, competitiveness, trade imbalances, austerity programmes and human rights.

The Reform of International Economic Governance

Author: Antonio Segura Serrano
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781317018131
Release Date: 2016-05-05
Genre: Law

The second half of the twentieth century saw the emergence of international economic law as a major force in the international legal system. This force has been severely tested by the economic crisis of 2008. Unable to prevent the crisis, the existing legal mechanisms have struggled to react against its direst consequences. This book brings together leading experts to analyse the main causes of the crisis and the role that international economic law has played in trying to prevent it, on the one hand, and worsening it, on the other. The work highlights the reaction and examines the tools that have been created by the international legal field to implement international cooperation in an effort to help put an end to the crisis and avoid similar events in the future. The volume brings together eminent legal academics and economists to examine key issues from the perspectives of trade law, financial law, and investment law with the collective aim of reform of international economic governance.

Moral und Angst

Author: Philipp Aerni
Publisher: Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht
ISBN: 9783647404349
Release Date: 2011-05-18
Genre: Fiction

Unser moralisches Empfinden ist von den Emotionen Glück und Angst geprägt. Sie gelten gar als Motor moralischen Handelns. Doch in unserer Gesellschaft herrscht nach wie vor eine strikte Trennung von Eigeninteresse und Moral. Während Freiheit und Autonomie gepriesen werden, sollen wir in erster Linie Gefühle vertreten, die nicht unsere eigenen sind. Das vergrößert die Kluft zwischen Sein und Schein.Experimentelle Forschung im Grenzbereich von Moralpsychologie, Neurowissenschaften und Verhaltensökonomie wie auch neuere Erkenntnisse aus den interdisziplinären Geistes- und insbesondere Religionswissenschaften lassen ein neues Bild des Menschen entstehen. Es hat wenig mit dem eines rationalen und an Idealvorstellungen orientierten Entscheidungsfinders zu tun, wie es bisher in Ökonomie und Ethik dominiert hat. Demnach gibt es weder den Menschen, der ausschließlich an kurzfristiger und rein materieller Nutzenmaximierung interessiert ist, noch gibt es den komplett uneigennützigen Typus, der immer nur an das Wohl der Allgemeinheit denkt.Mit einem Interview mit dem israelischen Historiker Shlomo Sand (»Die Erfindung des jüdischen Volkes«).
