The Retreat of the state : the diffusion of power in the world economy by Susan Strange( Book )

50 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 951 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Adopting new and much more comprehensive concepts of both power and politics, The Retreat of the State develops a theoretical framework to show who really governs the world economy. It goes on to explore some of non-state authorities, from mafias to the Big Six accounting firms and international bureaucrats, whose power over who gets what in the world encroaches on that of national governments. The book is a signpost, pointing to some promising new directions for the future development of research and teaching in international political economy."--Jacket
Casino capitalism by Susan Strange( Book )

49 editions published between 1986 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 863 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally released by Basil Blackwell in 1986, and then re-released by Manchester University Press in 1998, Casino capitalism is a cutting-edge discussion of international financial markets, the way they behave and the power they wield. It examines money's power for good as well as its terrible disruptive, destructive power for evil. Money is seen as being far too important to leave to bankers and economists to do with as they think best. The raison d'{circ}etre of Casino Capitalism is to expose the development of a financial system that has increasingly escaped the calming influences of democratic control. This new edition includes a powerful new introduction provided by Matthew Watson that puts the book it in its proper historical context, as well as identifying its relevance for the modern world. It will have a wide reaching audience, appealing both to academics and students of economics and globalization as well as the general reader with interests in capitalism and economic history

Mad money : when markets outgrow governments by Susan Strange( Book )

39 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The world's financial system is crazier and even more out of control than it was ten years ago. Mad Money analyzes the erratic nature of change and innovation in financial business in recent years and discusses the weak points--political as well as economic and technical--of a system driven more by volatile markets than by governments. The central issue is global finance "mad money" is how Susan Strange characterizes the alternately rampant and depressed financial markets of recent years. She sets out here to diagnose the sources and nature of the problem of markets having outgrown governments and to examine its social and political ramifications. Opinionated and brilliantly argued, Mad Money will surely provoke controversy and generate many conversations. Susan Strange's previous book, Casino Capitalism, established her as an authority on international finance and the basic structures of the international political economy. This sequel will reach not only scholars and students but a wider readership, including everyone worried by the yo-yoing of stock markets, the currency turmoil in Asia, and the general mismanagement of money by governments and international organizations such as the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank"--Publisher description
Rival states, rival firms : competition for world market shares by John M Stopford( Book )

35 editions published between 1991 and 2002 in English and held by 707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The upheavals of the international political economy during the last decade have fundamentally altered the relationships among states and multinational enterprises. Growing interdependence now means that the rivalry between states and the rivalry between firms for a secure place in the world has become fiercer. As a result, governments have come to recognise their increased dependence on the scarce resources controlled by firms."--BOOK JACKET. "In this original theoretical work, two distinguished authors explore this mutual interdependence of states and firms throughout the world. They show how global structural changesin finance, technology, knowledge and politics - often impel governments to seek the help and cooperation of managers of multinational enterprises. Yet, as Professors Stopford and Strange demonstrate, this is constrained by each country's economic resources, its social structures and its political history. Based on grass-roots research into the experience of over 50 multinationals and more than 100 investment projects in three developing countries - Brazil, Malaysia and Kenya - the authors develop a matrix of agendas. They present the impact on projects of the multiple factors affecting the bargaining relationships between the government and the foreign firm at different times and in a variety of economic sectors. In a conclusion they offer some guidelines for actions to both governments and firms and some points to future interdisciplinary research."--BOOK JACKET. "In this study of negotiation and bargaining, Professors Stopford and Strange synthesise the insights derived from international relations and international business. Rival states, rival firms will, therefore, be essential reading for students and specialists of international political economy, international relations and international business. This work will also be an invaluable resource for managers of international business and will help to explain to government policy makers how and why foreign firms decide to expand or contract their operations in foreign countries."--Jacket

14 editions published between 1981 and 2010 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This important survey, first published in 1981, presents some different and often contending perceptions of the problem of surplus capacity as it re-emerged in the world of the 1980s - an economic climate with many parallels to the current era. Susan Strange and Roger Tooze deliberately assembled writers of many different nationalities, professional backgrounds and ideological convictions and asked them to make the case for their version of the problem. Some even doubt if there really is much of a problem at all. Others see it as fundamentally political, or monetary; as inherent in the capital
