La Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics (SASE, ici) organise sa 24e conférence annuelle au MIT, Cambridgeles 28, 29 et 30 juin 2012. Le thème en est le suivant : "Global Shifts: Implications for Business, Government and Labour".
Voici quelques questions qui seront abordées : In what ways will the international division of labour change as emerging-market economies evolve from being peripheral players supplying low-cost inputs and outputs to becoming major providers of capital, talent, and innovation? In response to emerging-market consumers who are gaining prominence in scale, how will developed economy multinationals and emerging-market corporate challengers compete with each other? Does the rise of emerging markets imply even greater variety in the forms of contemporary capitalism with new models of business-state-civil society relationships, or do the re-emergence of state capitalism and the revival of industrial policy represent a harbinger of a new convergence in national political economies? How is the rise of emerging-market economies influencing and shaping global governance and international standards concerning labour, environment, intellectual property, etc.? Do the global shifts imply an emerging-market bloc consensus or continued contestation in establishing transnational rules, norms and standards? And will the role of advocacy networks, NGOs, and public-private initiatives continue to grow and co-exist with more traditional regulatory forums such as international organizations and professional associations?
