Where Are National Capitalisms Now? (co-edited with Jonathon Perraton)

Differences in the way national economies are organized have been highlighted in academic and policy debates. Where are National Capitalisms Now? provides studies of key national economies, examining both enduring features of their economic institutions and how these have changed in response to international economic integration and divergent performance. Drawing on a wide range of sources, the contributors provide a comprehensive, up-to-date assessment of different national models of capitalism, how they operate and how they affect the fortunes of their citizens.
