Good Governance of Countries and Business

New Media  | 07 de noviembre de 2013  | Vistas: 10

Jerry Jordan introduces a discussion on the interplay between good governance of political and business institutions, and the fundamental principles to the infrastructure of a market economy that are often taken for granted.

By recounting the inevitable historical challenge faced by countries first transitioning to market economies, he emphasizes the importance of returning to these concepts. Jordan considers the necessary shift from wealth-sharing to wealth-creating platforms within government-business relationships, and presents current examples of economic regulation and their catastrophic effects, from negative value-added accounting to intensification of crony capitalism. Financial supervision is not the answer, he says, as he vouches for the revival of a new watershed era, that reverses the pattern of strong regulation towards lesser government involvement in economic affairs.
