Download Free Technology and Globalisation PDF by David Pretel Full Book and published by Springer. This book was released on 2018-06-13 with total page 394 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book examines the role of experts and expertise in the dynamics of globalisation since the mid-nineteenth century. It shows how engineers, scientists and other experts have acted as globalising agents, providing many of the materials and institutional means for world economic and technical integration. Focusing on the study of international connections, Technology and Globalisation illustrates how expert practices have shaped the political economies of interacting countries, entire regions and the world economy. This title brings together a range of approaches and topics across different regions, transcending nationally-bounded historical narratives. Each chapter deals with a particular topic that places expert networks at the centre of the history of globalisation. The contributors concentrate on central themes including intellectual property rights, technology transfer, tropical science, energy production, large technological projects, technical standards and colonial infrastructures. Many also consider methodological, theoretical and conceptual issues.

Download Free Globalisation of Technology PDF by N.S. Siddharthan Full Book and published by Springer. This book was released on 2017-09-20 with total page 283 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book examines the globalisation of technology and innovation in the modern world. Enterprises globalise in several ways, e.g. by exporting, sourcing components and materials from other countries (B2B commerce), outsourcing, licensing their technologies and production, and foreign direct investments (FDI). Transaction costs and location advantages play a crucial role in selecting the best mode of globalisation. A number of important questions – like what are the pull and push factors contributing to FDI, does outward FDI from a developing country like India contribute to participation in international production networks, and does FDI mitigate business cycle co-movements – keep cropping up in the growing body of knowledge on the globalisation of technology. This book addresses these issues, as well as the consequences of FDI – in particular, with regard to technology, productivity, and R&D spillovers. Issues related to innovations, R&D, intra-industry trade, and knowledge management are also discussed.

Download Free Globalisation And Information Technology PDF by M.L. Narasaiah Full Book and published by Discovery Publishing House. This book was released on 2005 with total page 152 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Many view of globalisation as a technology driven global order that has led to an intensification of interconnectedness among nations. This, however, is merely one fact of globalisation, and does not presuppose the ideological homogenization or the rapid retrenchment of the welfare state that is currently underway. The dispute over globalisation is not about the intensification of global interconnectedness. Rather, it is over the vision of the global system that globalisation projects. This vision entails a global economic system with identifiable rules of behaviour in trade, finance, taxation, investment policy, intellectual property rights, and currency convertibility all of which are crafted along neo-liberal principles with minimal governmental regulation. This global system represents a new phase of capitalism which is more universal, more unchallenged, more pure and more unadulterated than even before . For many critics, globalisation is essentially, an anti-democratic process that excludes the interests of a wide range of groups. But the process is not shaped by market forces alone. It is only made possible by the acquiescence if not active support of governments, especially those in advanced countries. Governments in developing countries, meanwhile, are often said to be unable to stand up to globalisation without incurring severe, costs, the government of South Africa, for example, could be punished by capital flight if it insists on implementing its agenda of social reform. The masses of South Africa, however, are likely to sustain heavier costs if the government abandons its reforming mandate. Faced with such a dilemma, governments have generally selected the side of capital for a simple reason.

Download Free The Work of Art in a Digital Age: Art, Technology and Globalisation PDF by Melissa Langdon Full Book and published by Springer. This book was released on 2014-08-20 with total page 167 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book explores digital artists’ articulations of globalization. Digital artworks from around the world are examined in terms of how they both express and simulate globalization’s impacts through immersive, participatory and interactive technologies. The author highlights some of the problems with macro and categorical approaches to the study of globalization and presents new ways of seeing the phenomenon as a series of processes and flows that are individually experienced and expressed. Instead of providing a macro analysis of large-scale political and economic processes, the book offers imaginative new ways of knowing and understanding globalization as a series of micro affects. Digital art is explored in terms of how it re-centers articulations of globalization around individual experiences and offers new ways of accessing a complex topic often expressed in general and intangible terms. The Work of Art in a Digital Age: Art, Technology and Globalization is analytic and accessible, with material that is of interest to a range of researchers from different disciplines. Students studying digital art, film, globalization, cultural studies or digital media trends will also find the content fascinating.

Globalization has a fundamental influence on the creation and diffusion of technology, which, in turn, affects the interdependence of firms and locations. This volume examines the international aspect of this interdependence at two levels. First, between locations, by examining the role of cross-border interdependence in the innovation process. Second, between firms, by studying the dynamics of inter-firm R & D collaboration.
