Ideally suited to upper-undergraduate and graduate students, Analyzing the Global Political Economy critically assesses the convergence between IPE, comparative political economy, and economics. Andrew Walter and Gautam Sen show that a careful engagement with economics is essential for understanding both contemporary IPE and for analyzing the global political economy. The authors also argue that the deployment of more advanced economic theories should not detract from the continuing importance for IPE of key concepts from political science and international relations. IPE students with little or no background in economics will therefore find this book useful, and economics students interested in political economy will be alerted to the comparative strengths of political science and other social science disciplines. A concise look at the foundations of analysis in the political economy of global trade, money, finance, and investment Suitable for upper-undergraduate and graduate students with some or no economic background Techniques and findings from a range of academic disciplines, including international relations, political science, economics, sociology, and history Further reading and useful weblinks including a range of relevant data sources, listed in each chapter

This volume explores variations, continuities, and changes in the institutional foundations of East Asian capitalism since the 1980s, as reflected in business systems, financial structures, and labour markets. These three institutional dimensions have constituted the main underpinnings of post-war capitalist development in East Asia. While the volume encompasses a range of different cases, specific issues and diverse methodologies, they are all structured aroundthe two dominant themes-the continuities and changes in the institutional underpinnings of capitalist development and the main driving forces behind them. These two themes run through the various parts of the volume and facilitate an integrated analysis of how changing institutional practices inbusiness, financial, and labour systems interact and affect the evolution of capitalist political economies in the region.

The book provides a theoretically and historically informed analysis of the global economic crisis. It makes original contributions to theories of value, of crisis and of the state and uses these to develop a rich empirical study of the changing character of capitalism in the twentieth century and beyond. It defends, uses and develops Marxist theory while arguing particularly against jumping too quickly from abstract concepts to a concrete understanding of the crisis. Instead, it uses what Marx described in his notebooks as an ‘obvious’ analytical ordering to progress from a general analysis of economy and society to a discussion of recent economic transformations and the specifics of the crisis and its aftermath.Dunn argues that appropriately reconceived, a critical Marxism can incorporate and enrich rather than rejecting insights from other traditions. He disputes general characterisations of capitalism to the crisis and theories which see finance and the contemporary financial crises as largely detached from other aspects of the economy and society. Providing a thoroughly socialised and historically based account, this book will be vital reading for students and scholars of political economy, international political economy, Marxism, sociology, geography and development studies.

Das chinesische Wirtschaftswachstum der letzten 30 Jahre stellt mittlerweile jeden anderen langen Aufschwung der neueren Geschichte in den Schatten. Wie konnte sich diese Entwicklung in einem Land vollziehen, in dem die uneingeschränkte Herrschaft der Kommunistischen Partei gilt? Tobias ten Brink untersucht die politische Ökonomie Chinas erstmals systematisch anhand von Erkenntnissen aus der vergleichenden und internationalen Kapitalismusforschung. Seine Analyse der Dynamiken dieses eigentümlichen Wirtschaftstyps zeigt zudem, dass der chinesische Kapitalismus eine paradoxale Entwicklung durchläuft, die den Aufstieg Chinas zur Weltmacht beeinträchtigen könnte.

Transnational merchant law, which is mistakenly regarded in purely technical and apolitical terms, is a central mediator of domestic and global political/legal orders. By engaging with literature in international law, international relations and international political economy, this book develops the conceptual and theoretical foundations for analyzing the political significance of international economic law. In doing so, it illustrates the private nature of the interests that this evolving legal order has served over time. The book makes a sustained and comprehensive analysis of transnational merchant law and offers a radical critique of global capitalism.

The politics of major banking crises has been transformed since the nineteenth century. Analyzing extensive historical and contemporary evidence, Chwieroth and Walter demonstrate that the rising wealth of the middle class has generated 'great expectations' among voters that the government is responsible for the protection of this wealth. Crisis policy interventions have become more extensive and costly - and their political aftermaths far more fraught - because of democratic governance, not in spite of it. Using data from numerous democracies over two centuries, and detailed studies of Brazil, the United Kingdom and the United States, this book breaks new ground in exploring the consequences of the emerging mass political demand for financial stabilization. It shows why great expectations have induced rising financial fragility, more financial sector bailouts and rising political instability and discontent in contemporary democracies, providing new insight to anyone concerned with contemporary policy and politics.
