    Dynamic Diversity: Variety and Variation Within Countries2009In: Organization Studies, ISSN 0170-8406, E-ISSN 1741-3044, Vol. 30, no 9, 933-957 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    National models of social action over-privilege continuity and uniformity. They discount change — which they lack the capacity to explain (other than through exogenous shocks) — and neglect diversity within countries. This paper focuses on the national culture model which it argues requires commitment to illogical arguments and to suppositions which are theoretically and empirically untenable. An evaluation of each, it is argued, points to the existence of, and possibilities for, considerable national diversity and change — not pervasive and enduring national uniformity. Reflecting on the model’s rise and fall in anthropology, the paper also provides an outline explanation of its retention within organization studies and speculates about its future within that discipline.

    Incoherent Culture2009In: European Journal of Cross-Cultural Competence and Management, ISSN 1758-1516, Vol. 1, no 1, 22-25 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Culture is implicitly defined in most national cultural and multi-cultural studies as coherent. Each culture is supposed to be a holistic contradiction-free pattern, creating and sustaining uniform and enduring practices. This paper, whilst acknowledging the causal (but not deterministic) influence of culture, argues that all cultures are incoherent – they contain contradictions and other forms of heterogeneity. Thus we should be hesitant about relying on uniform cultural depictions of any group – national, ethnic, gender, community, organisational or whatever else – and be open to identifying and acknowledging diversity of cultures and practices within such populations.

    The Roles of Financial Asset Market Failure Denial and the Economic Crisis: Reflections on Accounting and Financial Theories and Practices2009In: Accounting, Organizations and Society, ISSN 0361-3682, E-ISSN 1873-6289, Vol. 43, 835-848 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Throughout the world every economic and socio-economic indicator has deteriorated. The so-called ‘real economy’ has been deeply contaminated by the most significant global financial crisis for seven decades. The ultimate extent and duration of this rampant degeneration and its longer-term political effects are unpredictable but what caused the crisis? This paper examines a range of suppositions made in theories which deny the possibility of financial asset market failure and identifies ways in which they contributed to the circumstances and actions which created the current crisis.
