Abstract

"The Greater China Australia Dialogue on Public Administration has held annual workshops since 2011 on public administration themes of common interest to the People’s Republic of China, Taiwan and Australia. This book presents and discusses a selection of papers developed from the Dialogue’s fifth workshop held in late 2015 hosted by the National Taiwan University in Taipei. The theme, ‘Value for Money’, focused on budget and financial management reforms, including how different nations account for the relative performance of their public sectors.&#xD;All governments face the challenge of scarce resources requiring budgetary management processes for identifying the resources required by and available to government, and then for allocating them and ensuring their use or deployment represents value for money. Such budgetary and financial management processes need to inform decision-making routinely and protect the integrity of the way public resources are used – with some public accountability to indicate that their uses are properly authorised and reflect the policies of legitimate government leaders.&#xD;The chapters in this book explore budgeting and financial management in three very different jurisdictions: Australia, the People’s Republic of China and the Republic of China (Taiwan). These activist and at times innovative countries are keen to analyse and reflect upon each other’s policy achievements and patterns of public provision. They are keen to learn more about each other as their economic and social engagement continues to deepen. They are also conscious that fundamental differences exist in terms of economic development and global strategic positioning, and levels and philosophies of political development; to an extent these differences are representative of differences amongst countries around the globe."

Abstract

Taxes and Trust is the first book on taxes to focus on trust and the first work of social science to concentrate on how tax policy actually gets implemented on the ground in Poland, Russia and Ukraine. It highlights the nuances of the transitional Ukraine case and explains precisely how and why that ‘borderland’ country differs from the more ideal types of coercive Russia and compliance-oriented Poland. Through eight bespoke taxpayer surveys, an unprecedented survey of bureaucrats and more than fifteen years of qualitative research, it emphasizes the building and accumulation of trust in the transition from a coercive tax state to a compliant one. The content of the book will appeal to students and scholars of taxation worldwide and to those who study Russia and Eastern Europe.

Abstract

Der Staat überwälzt administrative Leistungen vom öffentlichen auf den privaten Sektor. Im Personal- und Sozialbereich, Steuer- und Abgabenbereich, im Betriebsbereich sowie durch Statistiken und Meldungen entstehen dem privaten Sektor administrative Kosten. Die Kostenanalyse steht im Mittelpunkt der empirischen Untersuchung. Es werden Ergebnisse zur Verbesserung der Schätzmethodik erzielt. Informationsdefizite der Leistungserbringer bezüglich Leistungsumfang und Kostenbelastung werden empirisch nachgewiesen. Die Ergebnisse der finanzwissenschaftlichen Wirkungsanalyse sind die Basis für die Entscheidungsanalyse, die den politischen Prozeß zur Überwälzung einer administrativen Leistung auf den privaten Sektor erklärt. Das Informations- und Entscheidungsverhalten unter Unsicherheit der am politischen Prozeß Beteiligten bestimmt die politische Überwälzbarkeit administrativer Leistungen vom öffentlichen auf den privaten Sektor.

Abstract

Co-production and co-creation occur when citizens participate actively in&#xD;delivering and designing the services they receive. It has come increasingly&#xD;onto the agenda of policymakers, as interest in citizen participation has&#xD;more generally soared. Expectations are high and it is regarded as a possible&#xD;solution to the public sector’s decreased legitimacy and dwindling resources,&#xD;by accessing more of society’s capacities. In addition, it is seen as part of a&#xD;more general drive to reinvigorate voluntary participation and strengthen&#xD;social cohesion in an increasingly fragmented and individualized society.&#xD;Co-Production and Co-Creation: Engaging Citizens in Public Services&#xD;offers a systematic and comprehensive theoretical and empirical examination&#xD;of the concepts of co-production and co-creation and their application&#xD;in practice. It shows the latest state of knowledge on the topic and will&#xD;be of interest to students at an advanced level, academics and reflective&#xD;practitioners. It addresses the topics with regard to co-production and&#xD;co-creation and will be of interest to researchers, academics, policymakers,&#xD;and students in the fields of public administration, business administration,&#xD;economics, political science, public management, political science, service&#xD;management, sociology and voluntary sector studies.

Abstract

This edited volume aims to discuss the most contemporary state of the determinants of the firm value. This book presents theoretical works as well as empirical studies that contrast the arguments offered by the leading, ground-breaking theories on the firm value. What variables determine the firm value? Are these determinants controllable or uncontrollable by the managers of the companies? Is the impact of corporate governance systems on the firm value symmetrical between different institutional contexts? Do the financial reports affect the value of the firm? What role does corporate social responsibility play as a determinant of the firm value? These and other questions are analyzed and scrutinized step by step throughout this book.

Abstract

The director of communication is an impassioned profession that discovers which strategies are the best and the most intelligent. There are few manuals, and there are some that offer general and sparsely updated information about the change that new technologies imply. We find the literature isolated that can be directly useful. However, we will say that there is no single recipe for DirCom or communication consultants. Each one will offer different models according to the variables or factors that seem to them to be able to rectify the direction of a company according to his or her personal mood.

Abstract

This book was written to give scholars an opportunity to examine selected issues in health communication. There are many challenges in health communication, such as the shortage of evaluations on social marketing interventions, the need for a framework to easily apply social marketing practices to campaigns, and the difficulty of applying theory to improve communication. To address these challenges, the four chapters, including an introductory chapter, introduce several health communication topics, including social marketing, the application of theory, and message design to promote social communication. Readers can expect concise topic overviews with clear steps and examples of how to apply the methods discussed in each chapter.

Abstract

Ethanol, the main psychopharmacologically active ingredient of alcoholic drinks, represents a paradigmatic example of a research subject intrinsically able to perpetually self-generate interdisciplinary cutting-edge investigations.This eBook was inspired by the aim of providing an up-to-date characterization of the diverse effects of ethanol, of the possible mechanisms of action on different intracellular systems as well as of the hypothesized actions of ethanol and/or its metabolites on various neurotransmitters and neuromodulators.Indeed, the eBook provides a factual example of an excellent synthesis on the complex relationship between ethanol and its main biologically active metabolites (Chapter 1), on the behavioral and molecular consequences of early exposure to them (Chapter 2), on the recent proposals, advanced by the preclinical research, for new therapeutic approaches to distinct aspects of alcoholism (Chapter 3) and on the most recent and original preclinical evidence of the interactions between ethanol and/or its metabolites and the dopaminergic, adenosinergic and endocannabinoidergic systems (Chapter 4).Overall we believe that this eBook accomplishes its main goals of widening the perspective on this research subject and offering the readership a newer and, simultaneously, up-to-date and comprehensive scenery on ethanol’s and ethanol's active metabolites neurophysiological and behavioral effects.
