  • The Nordic gender equality paradox

    Nima Sanandaji

    "This book does a terrific job of dissecting why women in the world’s most gender-equal countries fail to live up to their potential. While it may seem that everything in the Nordic nations is stacked in favour of working women, Sanandaji explains the obstacles and incentives preventing women from reaching the top. From high tax wedges and the large welfare state, to the penalties on self-employment and the nationalisation of key female-led sectors, women in Nordic nations are encouraged to work hard, but not too hard. Setting conventional wisdom about the gender gap on its head, The Nordic Gender Equality Paradox is a lesson in market-oriented feminism." - Rachel Cunliffe, Deputy editor CapX

  • Renaissance for Reforms

    Stefan Fölster och Nima Sanandaji

    "This is the required companion volume to Why Nations Fail by Acemglou and Robinson. While those authors demonstrate that poor institutions are the explanation for economic failure, it is Sanandaji and Fölster that provide the successful strategy to overcome the obstacles. They demonstrate that market reforms lead to both economic and electoral success. Policy makers no longer have an excuse for not following the best policies. Renaissance for Reforms is required reading for all interested in policy change: academics, students, policy makers and politicians." - Dr Nigel Ashford, Institute for Humane Studies, George Mason University

    Private choice in the public sector

    Karin Svanborg-Sjövall

    This book tells the story of how freedom of choice revolutionised and created a New Swedish Model. From the controversial debates in the 1970s, via the first experiments in the 1980s, through the major reforms in the 1990s, it shows how this new model succeeded in transforming the vast public sector into becoming the servant of the citizenry instead of its master.

  • The Riddle of Post-national Power and the Global Protocol - Cover

    The Riddle of Post-national Power and the Global Protocol

    Mauricio Rojas

    The Internet captured the world by a process of voluntary association and negotiation. No supreme national government forced people to adopt the new language of digital transmission or indeed to be part of the network of global communication. The global protocol is rapidly transforming the old power structure in a process which dispels the importance of geographical borders. The national democratic systems are losing control over their increasingly mobile, cosmopolitan, and free citizens.
