Book: Stephen Martin «Industrial Organization in Context»

Industrial Organization in Context

Industrial Organization is a central branch of microeconomics that has historically provoked a great deal of debate among economists. Drawing on this background, the author examines the economics of markets, industries, and their participants, and in doing so addresses the implications for public policy towards the business behaviour of firms. Examining both US Antitrust and EU Competition Policy, Industrial Organization in Context takes an international approach and employs classic and contemporary examples throughout to show how key theories are put into action. Experimental tests of models will help you to grasp essential economic questions, while the discussion of economic history allows you to understand where we are today by appreciating how we got there.

Stephen Martin

Dr Stephen Paul Martin (born in Wollongong, New South Wales on June 241948) is a politician and senior academic.

He served as an Australian Labor Party (ALP) member of parliament for the Commonwealth electoral Division of Macarthur, south west of Sydney, from 1984-1993; and he represented Cunningham, following redistribution from 1993, until his resignation in 2002.

Prior to entering parliament, Dr Martin served as a high school teacher with the NSW Department of Education, a lecturer at the University of Wollongong, and a Town Planner with the NSW Department of Environment and Planning serving as Regional Manager for the Macarthur Region. He also served as an Alderman on Wollongong City Council from 1983-1985.

He served as Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade from 27 December1991 to 24 March1993 and was elected Speaker of the Australian House of Representatives on 4 May1993, a position that he held until the election of the Howard government in 1996.

The resignation of Dr Martin before the expiration of his term, on 16 August 2002, caused a by-election which was subsequently won by the Australian Greens. The party's preselected replacement, Sharon Bird, had not been selected by the rank and file members of the party, but rather by using a provision in the party rules, and the presence of a Green trade union candidate with the support of the South Coast Labor Council, local trade union members and disaffected ALP members helped to make Martin's former the seat the first House of Representatives seat to be won by a minor party since 1946.

After a period as President of the University of Wollongong campus in Dubai, Professor Stephen Martin took the position of Pro Vice-Chancellor (International) at Victoria University in Melbourne in January 2005. His major contributions were to transform Victoria University's international operations and to create Victoria University International (VUI) as a unit of the University.

In March 2008 Professor the Hon. Stephen Martin took up the position of Deputy Vice Chancellor (Strategy and Planning) at Curtin University of Technology in Perth.
