of Governmental Power to Private Parties: A Comparative Perspective by
Catherine Donelly (Hardcover - Jan 10,
2008). Oxford University Press, USA (January 10, 2008).
Through a comparative analysis of England, the
European Union, and the United States, this book considers legal responses to delegation
of governmental power to private parties. It is argued that although private delegation
has the potential to enhance the efficency and effectiveness of governance, it should not
be assumed to have this result. Information

Evidence on How Companies Raise Equity Finance by Tim Jenkinson, Alexander
Ljungqvist, and Jay Ritter (Hardcover - Feb
15, 2001). Oxford University Press, USA; 2 edition (February 15, 2001).
During its life, a company must make the
critical decision of if, and when, to `go public' by listing themselves on the stock
exchange. Two anomalies are apparent: that companies taking this route systematically
initially underprice their shares and that over the longer term they under-perform other
companies. This second edition of Going Public investigates these issues in a
non-technical manner. Information

The Problems of Privatization: An International
Analysis by Bernardo Bortolotti and Domenico Siniscalco (Hardcover - May 6, 2004). Oxford University Press, USA (May 6, 2004).
This book provides the first systematic empirical
analysis of privatization processes worldwide to explain how and why governments
privatize. Privatization is shown to be a difficult process, shaped by political
preferences and budgetary constraints, often pursued in the absence of suitable economics
and legal institutions. As a result, in most cases, the process has been partial and
incomplete, so that private ownership tends to coexist with public control. Information

stock markets. Information
