A government by the people and for the people is an ideal of Irish politics. But it is fast disappearing as corporations take more control. The Corporate Takeover of Ireland examines the effects corporations have on Irish life and shows how democratic decision making has been subverted by money. For example: --- Efforts to ban advertising to children and to restrict promotion of alcohol have been prevented by large global corporations. --- Irish universities are increasingly run on the model of a corporation and their research work is being put at the service of major pharmaceutical firms --- A new medical apartheid is being created in health as huge US health corporations stand ready to move into the private healthcare market. --- Waste collection is no longer organized as a public service but is being turned into big business. --- State enterprises such as Aer Lingus have been handed over to private investors. The Corporate Takeover of Ireland is based on interviews with key participants and is supplemented with documentary information. New material challenges arguments for privatization/de-regulation in Ireland, suggests that public resources are being squandered on 'corporate welfare, ' and questions the notion that the consumer has gained from the changes. The book, written in a highly accessible style, calls for a new movement of resistance that will put people before profit and bring about more genuine democracy

A collection of stimulating essays exploring the wide-ranging debates surrounding the relationship between business and society in 21st century Ireland. Wide-ranging, diverse and thought-provoking contributions from leading business researchers, economists, sociologists and political scientists from Ireland and abroad probe five central themes: the making and unmaking of the Celtic Tiger; governance, regulation and justice; partnership and participation; the nature of Irish borders in Ireland, Europe and the wider world; and interests and concerns in contemporary Ireland. Irish Business and Society takes a critical look at Ireland as one of the most open and globally integrated economies in the world, with the activities of Irish and Irish-based foreign business impacting on both national and international societies and businesses; discusses the relationships between business and society within the context of the wider Irish and European, political economy; presents the Irish economic decisions and conditions that precipitated the current recession in Ireland and the resultant lessons to be learned; and examines the relationship between Irish business and society today, contemplating how it might develop into the future. Essential reading for students of Irish Business, Economics, Sociology and Politics, those taking Irish Studies courses and anyone interested in contemporary Ireland. The contributors are: Nicola Timoney, Frank Barry, Mary P. Murphy, William Kingston, Niamh M.

The term “takeover”, of which the first form is mergers and acquisitions (M&A), refers to the transfer of control of a business from one group of shareholders to another. Considering the importance of this issue and the real drives behind takeovers, it has become imperative to identifying companies that are vulnerable to takeover by two types: tender offer and exchange offer. This book thus presents the legal aspects, the theoretical justifications and the empirical contributions of takeovers, and analyzes the economic and financial characteristics of targets in order to assess the probability of being acquired. An empirical approach based on two quantitative studies is then applied to the European market, which is still virgin territory in terms of academic research. Finally, acquisition probability models have been developed and they have a 72% forecast accuracy average rate of targets. Corporate Takeover Targets is aimed at students and researchers in economic and management, as well as M&A consultants.

From one man’s Hackney market stall to a company serving fifty million customers in thirteen countries every week, this is the extraordinary story of one of Britain’s most remarkable companies. Told by those who themselves feature in it – Tesco’s own employees – it relates a fascinating social history as well as an epic business venture. Drawn from hundreds of hours of interviews with Tesco staff, collected by National Life Stories at the British Library, these personal accounts from across the decades are frank, insightful, sometimes funny and, above all, very human. How, then, did Tesco grow from Jack Cohen’s barrow in Hackney to the hypermarkets in Hungary and Thailand and a home-delivery service to customers from Cheshire to the Czech Republic? Why and how did Tesco survive and (mostly) thrive where other British companies stalled? And what impact has Tesco’s success had on its employees and consumers? Here is Tesco’s authentic story, carefully researched and engagingly written by Sarah Ryle, told for the first time by the people at the very heart of the business.
This pioneering study examines governance and directors, business strategy, management structure, capital structure, financial control and accounting policies, in cases which cover a variety of manufacturing, service and financial industries.

Each of the book's contributors is engaged in critical academic research across a broad spectrum in Scotland. Although they are specialists in their chosen fields, they share a concern to problematise the post-devolution, 'new' Scotland by discussing it fully and effectively in the neo-liberal context of the 21st century. In addition, all of the authors are activists in the anti-capitalist, environmental, socialist and anti-war movements and are therefore engaged in the processes outlined in ...

Politics in Ireland is the first major text to provide an accessible and systematic analysis of the politics of Ireland: North as well as South. With the development of a new Northern Irish political system and increasing links across the island, the authors argue that the time is ripe to study together the two polities, which share so much of a common history but which have had very different evolutions through the twentieth century. Drawing upon an exceptionally wide range of sources and their own original research, the authors deploy a thematic approach to the study of political institutions, political behaviour and public policy in both the Republic and Northern Ireland in order to produce a detailed, but highly readable, assessment of governance and politics in both political systems. This approach enables them both to outline the differences and similarities between the polities and to explain how they relate to the wider world, in particular to the UK and to Europe.
