  1. All Fall Down

    All Fall Down

    Jane D’Arista
    All Fall Down traces the ways in which changes in financial structure and regulation eroded monetary control and led to historically high levels of debt relative to GDP in both developed and emerging economies. Rising stocks of debt drove the global financial system into crisis in 2008 when households, businesses, financial institutions and the public sector in some countries strained to generate sufficient income for debt service. The stagnation and fall in asset prices that followed began the process of unwinding that led to a run on the financial sector by the financial sector. Learn More

  2. A Research Agenda for Neoliberalism

    A Research Agenda for Neoliberalism

    Kean Birch
    With an ever-expanding variety of perspectives on the concept of neoliberalism, it is increasingly difficult to identify any commonalities. This book explores how different people understand neoliberalism, and the contradictions in thinking of neoliberalism as a market-based ethic, project, or order. Detailing the intellectual history of ‘neoliberal’ thought, the variety of critical approaches and the many analytical ambiguities, Kean Birch presents a new way to conceptualize contemporary political economy and offers potential avenues for future research through a judicious exploration of ‘neoliberal’ practices, processes, and institutions.

  3. State and Trade

    State and Trade

    David Reisman
    In the age of globalisation, goods, services, labour and capital are crossing international borders on a scale never before known. They are creating a nationless market. Governed by both the invisible hand of business and interest and the visible hand of authority and direction, a world market can be a free-for-all, but it can also be constrained by the national interest of countries that differ greatly in their social institutions and material circumstances. This book provides a lucid and comprehensive account of contemporary international political economy. Beginning with the ideological underpinnings, it examines the globalisation of trade in goods and services and labour and capital. It relates the free economic market to social consensus and political regulation, both within sovereign countries and at the supra-national level. Learn More

  4. Capitalism, Macroeconomics and Reality

    Capitalism, Macroeconomics and Reality

    James Crotty
    The essays comprising this collection analyze the deep flaws in the methodological foundation of mainstream economic theory, and explain how these flaws make mainstream economics more ideology than sound social science. James Crotty develops alternative theories built on realistic assumptions that can explain most of the disastrous economic and financial developments of the past four decades. His work contributes to the collective creation of a solid theoretical foundation on which to build an understanding of the ‘laws of motion’ of capitalism in the post WWII era. Learn More

  5. Digitalization, Immigration and the Welfare State

    Digitalization, Immigration and the Welfare State

    Mårten Blix
    The Swedish welfare state finds itself in the middle of two major upheavals: The impact of technology and immigration. Having taken in more refugees per capita than most other countries, the pillars of the welfare state are being shaken. Digital technologies are set to strengthen already existing trends towards job and wage polarization. This book explores how these trends are more pronounced due to the rigidity of the labor market and the comprehensiveness of tax-financed welfare services. Learn More

    Politics as a Peculiar Business

    Richard E. Wagner
    Economists typically treat government as something outside the business realm, a sort of ‘Lord of the Manor’. Richard Wagner argues that this is the wrong approach and can ultimately be destructive to capitalism and to society. Learn More

  9. Should Britain Leave the EU?

    Should Britain Leave the EU?

    Patrick Minford, Sakshi Gupta, Vo P.M. Le, Vidya Mahambare, Yongdeng Xu
    This second edition brings up to date a thorough review of all economic aspects of the UK's relationship with the EU, which also puts it in the political context of the upcoming referendum. It notes the intention of the EU to move to 'ever closer union' and the nature of the regulatory and general economic philosophy of the dominant countries of the EU whose writ is enforced by qualified majority voting. The book highlights the UK dilemma that, while extending free markets to its local region is attractive, this philosophy and intended union are substantially at odds with the UK's traditions of free markets and freedom under the common law.

  11. Eurozone Dystopia

    Eurozone Dystopia

    William Mitchell
    Eurozone Dystopia traces the origin of the Eurozone and shows how the historical Franco-German rivalry combined with the growing dominance of neo-liberal economic thinking to create a monetary system that is deeply flawed and destined to fail. It argues that the political class in Europe is trapped in a destructive groupthink which prevents it from seeing their own policy failures. Millions are unemployed as a result and the member states are caught in a cycle of persistent stagnation and rising social instability. Learn More

    Public Policy and Professional Sports is a comprehensive analysis of public policy aspects of the economics of professional sports, supported by in-depth international case studies.

    Damien Cahill
    When the global financial crisis hit in 2007, many commentators thought it heralded the end of neoliberalism. Several years later, neoliberalism continues to dominate policy making. This book sets out why such commentators got it so wrong, and why neoliberalism remains so durable in the face of crisis. Learn More

  14. Sweden and the Revival of the Capitalist Welfare State

    Sweden and the Revival of the Capitalist Welfare State

    Andreas Bergh
    This book tackles a number of controversial questions regarding Sweden’s economic and political development: • How did Sweden become rich? • How did Sweden become egalitarian? • Why has Sweden since the early 1990s grown faster than the US and most EU-countries despite its high taxes and generous welfare state? The author uses new research on institutions and economic reforms to explain the rise, the fall and the recent revival of the Swedish welfare state. The central argument is that a generous welfare state like Sweden’s can work well, provided that it is built on well-functioning capitalist institutions and economic openess. Learn More

    The Rule of Law

    Christopher May
    This timely book explores the complexities of the rule of law – a well-used but perhaps less well understood term – to explain why it is so often appealed to in discussions of global politics. Ranging from capacity building and the role of the World Bank to the discourse(s) of lawyers and jurisprudential critiques, it seeks to introduce non-lawyers to the important and complex political economy of the rule of law.

  17. Economic Futures of the West

    Economic Futures of the West

    Jan Winiecki
    Jan Winiecki explores the various problems that the West must deal with in order to remain an efficient competitor in the world economy. These, he argues, are primarily consequences of the ever-expanding welfare state; consequences that are not only economic but also socio-psychological and, therefore, political. The author also considers the evolution of Western Europe and the USA from a new perspective, noting the ‘Europeanization’ of US economic policies and regulation and the ‘Americanization’ of polices and regulation in some European countries. The book concludes that the main challengers to the West – Brazil, Russia, India and China (the so-called BRIC group of countries) – are unlikely to gain economic supremacy over the West any time soon, given that they have to contend with their own difficulties.

    Pauline Dixon
    This fascinating volume challenges the widely held belief that the state should supply, finance and regulate schooling in developing countries. Using India as an example, Dr. Pauline Dixon examines the ways in which private, for-profit schools might serve as a successful alternative to state-run systems of education in impoverished communities around the world.

  19. The Political Power of the Business Corporation

    The Political Power of the Business Corporation

    Stephen Wilks
    The large business corporation has become a governing institution in national and global politics. This trail-blazing book offers a critical account of its political dominance and lack of democratic legitimacy. Thanks to successful wealth generation and ideological victories the large business corporation has become an effective political actor and has entered into partnership with government in the design of public policy and delivery of public services. Stephen Wilks argues that governmental and corporate elites have transformed British politics to create a ‘new corporate state’ with similar patterns in the USA, in competitor economies – including China – and in global governance. The argument embraces multinational corporations, corporate social responsibility, corporate governance and the inequality generated by corporate dominance. Learn More
