Comparative Empirical Analysis of Cultural Values and Perceptions of Political Economy Issues

Synopsis

People's basic values are shaped by major changes in environmental conditions, such as scarcity of resources and hostility in the political and socioeconomic system. Based on the extensive research of the International Consortium for Management Studies, this work examines the values and perceptions of a variety of issues in eight countries with different socioeconomic and political systems. Cultural, family, and workplace values are among some of the critical issues discussed. A sequel to Cross-Cultural Analysis of Values and Political Economy Issues (Praeger, 1994), specialists in developmental, regional, and political economics will find this a timely contribution to understanding emerging developments in diverse cultures.
