La gestión de las organizaciones no lucrativas

La Gestión de las Organizaciones no Lucrativas pretende ser un manual que sirva para ayudar a las personas que dirigen las miles de asociaciones que hay en el país y que, a menudo, se encuentran sin los instrumentos de gestión necesarios para llevarlas adelante. Esta obra quiere suscitar la reflexión de los responsables de las organizaciones no lucrativas, que hace muchos años que se preocupan de ayudar al resto de personas sin pararse a pensar que con esto no basta, que la sociedad está en transformación continua y que, en definitiva, lo que la sociedad necesita son organizaciones que no sólo hagan el bien sino que lo hagan bien. Partiendo de los valores intrínsecos del sector no lucrativo, este libro quiere ofrecer al lector un conjunto de herramientas, instrumentos y técnicas de gestión que le ayuden a conseguir que su asociación obtenga un mayor impacto social.

The Political Economy of Institutional Change in the Electricity Supply Industry

The Political Economy of Institutional Change in the Electricity Supply Industry

Through a variety of analytical lenses - formal modeling, econometrics and case study comparisons - Carlos Rufín fills a gap in the political economy of second-wave, or microeconomic, reforms around the world. More specifically, he does so in the context of the electricity supply industry, where such reforms have been as problematic as they have been widespread. The author shows that ideological considerations and bargaining over the distribution of economic rents accruing from certain institutional arrangements are powerful shapers of institutional change. At the same time, the legacy of the past does not appear to have a clear or systematic effect on the direction of second-wave reforms that seek to transform existing economic institutions. If distributional conflicts can be resolved, these conclusions provide grounds for optimism about the ability to create new institutions even in countries where little favorable precedent exists.
