"The contributors analyse the history and theory of international capital flows to make sense of contemporary global investments and what they mean for global polity and the economy. They argue over the challenges of integrating large developing countries into a liberal world order and the consequences of the multilateral system for the world's poor. In further discussions they investigate the sustainability of global capitalism in light of financial crises, wide spread inequality and the uncertain future for traditional welfare states, They also advance various mechanisms through which they believe greater stability and equity could be introduced into the global financial system and the world economy, implicit in these arguments is the shared belief that tensions between visions of a rule-based, liberal world and concepts of a more equitable distribution of resources drive most of the major conflicts in the global economy." "Markets and Authorities will be an invaluable addition to the fields of economics, political science, political economy and international business."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
