The 2006 annual meeting of the BHC
The theme for the conference is "Political Economy of Enterprise." Business, the political system, and government have influenced one another from time immemorial. This year's program theme invites us to reflect on those interactions. What institutional frameworks have been more, and less, conducive to business enterprise? What has been the relationship of political leadership to business success and failure? How has government promoted business and innovation? How have regulation, taxation, and subsidies affected business? What has been the significance of gender/ethnicity in shaping political economic relationships, and how have political economic relationships fostered reconstructions of gender and ethnicity? In what areas of business has government taken the most interest, and why? When does business corrupt government, and vice versa? How have globalization and multinational corporations affected traditional business-government relations? What have been and are the effects on business enterprise of free trade areas such as NAFTA, of customs unions such as the EU, and of international organizations such at the WTO, the IMF, and the World Bank?
