Abstract

This book examines welfare effects of gender-related inequalities in Korean households and labor markets. It uses subjective well-being data to show that reductions of excessive levels of working hours did improve family well-being in the past decade. Moreover, benefits from major life events like marriage can differ greatly by sex if traditional gender roles dominate and women contribute much less than men to household earnings. Furthermore, the study examines dynamics in rural East Asian economies and their impact on individual welfare outcomes. Both land redistribution and productivity-enhancing reforms are found to have been highly beneficial for Korean development. The Indonesian case study demonstrates the importance of cash-crop decisions and the growing non-farm sector for rural development.

Abstract

Bankenstrukturreformen, die eine Trennung von Investment- und Retailbanking vorsehen und die zusammenfassend als „Ring-Fencing“ bezeichnet werden können, werden seit der Finanzkrise kontrovers diskutiert. Die Arbeit befasst sich mit den rechtlichen Entwicklungen in der Europäischen Union sowie mit Regelungen im Vereinigten Königreich, Deutschland und der Schweiz.Die Arbeit trägt zur Abgrenzung und der Systematik von Ring-Fencing-Regelungen bei und zeichnet ein umfassendes Bild der gegenwärtigen Entwicklungen sowie möglicher Perspektiven auf Ebene des Unionsrechts. Darüber hinaus untersucht sie strukturelle Unterschiede zwischen bestehenden nationalen Regelungen an Europas drei wichtigsten Finanzplätzen und geht dabei insbesondere auf die einzigartigen aber bisher international wenig beachteten Schweizerischen Ring-Fencing-Bestrebungen ein.Die Arbeit wurde unter anderem mit dem Österreichischen Preis für Insolvenzrecht ausgezeichnet.Bank structural reforms that stipulate the separation of retail and investment banking and that can collectively be referred to as ‘ring-fencing’ have been among the most controversial regulations since the financial crisis. This study explores legal developments in the European Union in this regard as well as national legislation in the United Kingdom, Germany and Switzerland.The study contributes to the terminology and classification of existing and future ring-fencing initiatives and paints a comprehensive picture of current developments and prospects on an EU level in this respect. It furthermore highlights structural differences in the national approaches of Europe’s three most important financial centres, and casts light on Switzerland’s unique ring-fencing efforts that have been barely recognised internationally.This study was recognised with the Austrian Award for Insolvency Law.

Abstract

The last two decades have been marked by intense and accelerated economic, political, and cultural processes that have affected urban spaces. These changes have occurred in different parts of cities (traditional centers, edges, peripheries) and at different levels of the urban system (large and medium-sized cities and in their respective areas of influence). Possibly the clearest expression of the spatial effects on cities can be perceived in their morphological transformations, their territorial dimensions, or in their social problems. Until 2008, urban–territorial processes were a reflection of the logic and inconsistencies of an expansive economic context and of a structural context that favored the development of cities through concurrent processes and actors. As a result, the built land and amount of urbanized and built surfaces increased, together with processes of the expansion and modernization of cities. Since 2008, the expansive economic cycle has ended, and there have been diverse negative consequences. Notably, the construction sector has come to an abrupt halt. Access to credit has also been reduced, and unemployment has increased. The economic recession has caused sociodemographic and socioeconomic issues exemplified by housing vulnerability, with dispossession, evictions, a shortage of social housing, and energy poverty.
