Fiscal sustainability of an independent Scotland By Michael Amior, Rowena Crawford, Gemma Tetlow
Paperback: $25.75

In this report, we use a model of the UK’s and Scotland’s long-run public finances to project levels of public revenues and spending over the next 50 years, taking into account projected... More > changes in the size and demographic structure of the population. We examine: • the long-run fiscal pressures that an independent Scotland may face; • how these would differ from those facing the UK; • the size of the fiscal consolidation that may be required to put Scotland’s public finances on a sustainable path. An independent Scottish government might not need to implement such a fiscal consolidation immediately, but these long-run fiscal pressures should form an important part of the backdrop to any discussions about potential restructuring of Scottish taxation and public spending in the event of independence.< Less
The Green Sustainability Matrix – Part I By Vincent-Emmanuel MATHON
Paperback: $10.60
Ships in 3-5 business days
Energy savings in corporate buildings require investments in terms of works and maintenance. Such investments however will not generally offer an appropriate return on investment. A solution to make... More > energy savings profitable would be to have them packaged as financial products, such as options. This would require precise technical analysis and a mathematical model to predict potential energy consumptions cuts. This financial product would be labeled ΔE. ΔE could be financially valued if it became part of the valuation of buildings. ΔEs could thus be bought, sold or exchanged just the way options are on the market. To correlate the ΔEs with the physical reality of energy consumptions, we could create a specific market in which real agents and virtual environmental agents representing natural resources would trade together. Beyond the question of energy savings in buildings, this would be a step in considering nature as an economic actor.< Less

One of the major challenges confronted by those in charge of technological innovation involves anticipating the value creation model sufficiently early on, in a highly uncertain context both as far... More > as the technology itself is concerned and the potential market. Today, in many industrial sectors, the innovation boundaries have moved towards projects that are more and more exploratory and fuzzy. The simple optimisation of linear processes of the "stage-gate" type is no longer sufficient to build sustainable competitive advantages. The notion of Business Models, when applied to innovation, enables us to describe how a company creates value through innovation, generally within a business ecosystem, and how the value will be distributed between the actors involved. The authors of this book believe that the notions of Business Modelling and value creation are key to all the dimensions of successful innovation, whether technology, marketing, organisational or economically based.< Less
