Governing capitalist economies: performance and control of economic sectors
Oxford University Press, 1994 - Business & Economics - 316 pages
As economic sectors of various advanced industrial societies suffer in response to a decline in global growth rates, scholars, policy analysts, and government officials in a variety of countries increasingly look beyond their national boundaries for more effective models of management and industrial policy. Governing Capitalist Economies: Performance and Control of Economic Sectors offers a comparative analysis of the coordination and control of industries in North America, Japan, and Western Europe and challenges neo-classical economists' assumptions about the efficaciousness of market mechanisms as a means of enhancing economic performance. The authors explore variation in state policies in the governance of internationally competitive industries (automobiles, chemicals, consumer electronics, and steel, for example) and demonstrate how variation in state policies influences the performance of industrial sectors. The authors argue that tightly controlled sectors outperform their less-regulated counterparts in the world economy. Governing Capitalist Economies begins with an introduction to capitalism, sectors, and institutions by the editors - J. Rogers Hollingsworth, Philippe C. Schmitter, and Wolfgang Streeck - which provides a general overview and background for the ten case studies that follow. This is a timely and topical study that will provide informative reading for scholars and students of political economy, political science, and business.
