Throughout his long and distinguished career, David Mayes was concerned with a wide range of subjects. This paper focuses on three of them: on monetary and financial history, on monetary stability, and on financial stability. We use the first of these to open up exploration of the second and third. A relationship is often asserted between monetary and financial stability, but how close and how durable is it? Is it one that holds through a long span of history, or is it contingent on a range of f...

This chapter presents research results on the rate and effect of various specific bundles of HR practices on organisational performance in Brunei. The literature available on the subject of comparative capitalism suggests that, across more developed societies, it is common for a mutually supportive nature to be identified in relation to informal and formal regulations, which are maintained through linked and well-considered HR systems, centred on enhancing organisational performance. On the othe...

Abstract Mergers and acquisitions (M&As) have been a popular strategy for firms to increase their competitive advantage. Existing research has revealed a wide range of implications for the workforce and human resource management (HRM) stemming from M&As. However, insufficient attention has been paid to issues related to employee resilience. We argue that employee resilience, a concept that is still to gain widespread attention in HRM research, is crucial to organizations wishing to manage their ...
