Abstract: The advertising blurb for a DVD series called “Straight from the Projects: Rappers that live the lyrics” boasts that “3 people were shot while our cameras were rolling...7 people...were shot and killed before the film was completed. This is the realest ghetto sh*t ever filmed!” In a dark irony, C-Murder, one of the rappers featured in the DVD, has since been sentenced to life in prison for murder and his police mug shot is prominently displayed on the March 2004 cover of hip hop magazine, The Source, along with the mug shots of nine other rap artists. The issue, “Hip-Hop Behind Bars: Are Rappers the New Target of America’s Criminal Justice System?”, describes the legal troubles of no fewer than thirty rappers, many of whom are multi-platinum selling artists that have been incarcerated, or who are awaiting sentencing for charges such as aggravated assault, gun possession, sexual assault, selling crack cocaine, robbery, and murder. Almost thirty years into America’s era of mass incarceration in which “6.5 million Americans are under criminal justice supervision representing one adult male in twenty, one black man in nine, and one young black man (ages 18 to 35) in three,” success for rap artists requires that they stand at the intersection of two industries: crime control and entertainment. Taking the rap music industry as a site of cultural production, this paper will explore the ways in which this industry produces a certain kind of discourse about the relationship between crime and the entertainment industry.

Abstract: Globalization is a subject conceptualized at many levels and within various theoretical frameworks which view it as an ongoing social, economic, and market processes. The mode of production, including the production process of a commodity, is a critical mechanism of the globalization of markets and industries as they produce organize and distribute commodities.
Adopting the global commodity chain framework, this paper looks at the globalization process of production in one of the core components to national modernization. Looking at the production process of steel, it is illustrated how a transition in commodity production – i.e. the role of recycling – profoundly affects the path on which an industry globalizes. In analyzing global and national data (U.S.) about the steel industry, it is apparent that this in an industry in the process of developing a global producer-drive commodity chain. The steel industry can be seen as a GCC whose governance structure is still conducted at the national level, where international remains a key process in developing a global process of production. Thus, this paper attempts to present a case study approach to the globalization of an industry and development of a GCC. Steel is a crucial commodity in the industrialization of nations, but it also an industry dependent on raw materials and a notoriously intense production process that is being transformed by the development of recycling as a major link in the production process.

3. qiu, zhibo. "To What Degree Is Industrial Policy Feasible In the Epoch of Globalisation?_x000d_Comparative Analysis between Japanese and Chinese Industrial Policies in Automobile Industry" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Midwest Political Science Association 67th Annual National Conference, The Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2019-04-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p362796_index.html>

Abstract: This paper is to examine whether the industrial policy is still feasible for developing countries in the epoch of globalisation based on the comparison between the Japanese and Chinese automobile industries. Sharing the same goal of catching up with high-income countries, both Japanese and Chinese governments selected the automobile industry to achieve industrial development and build up a few large firms with international competitive capability. In the postwar period, Japan successfully nurtured its leading automobile producers such as Toyota and Nissan with protectionist industrial policies. Conversely, with the similar package of industrial policies, the Chinese state-supported large automobile producers face tough competition from the global conglomerate automakers and the domestic indigenous producers. Drawing on the success of Japan and the failure of China, intense international competition, low-level technology and institutional inefficiency are the main obstacles for automakers from developing countries to catch up with their global competitors. In the near future, it is still difficult for developing countries to utilize industrial policies to nurture “national champions” in this highly consolidated industrial sector.
