The end of diversity? : prospects for German and Japanese capitalism by Kozo Yamamura( )

13 editions published between 2003 and 2018 in English and held by 957 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kozo Yamamura and Wolfgang Streeck have gathered an international group of authors to examine the likelihood of convergence - to determine whether the global forces of Anglo-American capitalism will give rise to a single, homogeneous capitalist system. The chapters in this volume approach this question from five directions: international integration, technological innovation, labor relations and production systems, financial regimes and corporate governance, and domestic politics
Governing interests : business associations facing internationalization by Wolfgang Streeck( )

22 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 934 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the current period of globalization, "Governing Interests" presents new research on the impact of internationalization on the organization and representation of business interests through trade and employer associations. By exploring ongoing, gradual, but nevertheless profound changes in the structures and functions of business interest associations, the book develops a precise understanding of the relationship between the national and the international. Both conceptual and empirical, some papers included in this significant volume adopt a 'bird's eye view' of the topic, whilst others concentrate on individual industries or countries, and several, through examination and analysis, consider the effects on interest representation and the repercussions on effective governance. Contributed to and edited by leading academics, the diversity of research questions and methods used in this volume provide the reader with an excellent understanding of the subject and, importantly, caution against rash simplifications. Comprehensive and scholarly, this text will be of particular relevance to political scientists and sociologists

How will capitalism end? : essays on a failing system by Wolfgang Streeck( Book )

27 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The provocative political thinker asks if it will be with a bang or a whimper In How Will Capitalism End? the acclaimed analyst of contemporary politics and economics Wolfgang Streeck argues that capitalism is now in a critical condition. Growth is giving way to secular stagnation; inequality is leading to instability; and confidence in the capitalist money economy has all but evaporated. Capitalism's shotgun marriage with democracy since 1945 is breaking up as the regulatory institutions restraining its advance have collapsed, and after the final victory of capitalism over its enemies no political agency capable of rebuilding them is in sight. The capitalist system is stricken with at least five worsening disorders for which no cure is at hand: declining growth, oligarchy, starvation of the public sphere, corruption and international anarchy. In this arresting book Wolfgang Streeck asks if we are witnessing a long and painful period of cumulative decay: of intensifying frictions, of fragility and uncertainty, and of a steady succession of 'normal accidents'"--
Politics in the age of austerity by Wolfgang Streeck( Book )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a world of increasing austerity measures, democratic politics comes under pressure. With the need to consolidate budgets and to accommodate financial markets, the responsiveness of governments to voters declines. However, democracy depends on choice. Citizens must be able to influence the course of government through elections and if a change in government cannot translate into different policies, democracy is incapacitated. Many mature democracies are approaching this situation as they confront fiscal crisis. For almost three decades, OECD countries have - in fits and starts - run deficits and accumulated debt. As a result, an ever smaller part of government revenue is available today for discretionary spending and social investment and whichever party comes into office will find its hands tied by past decisions. The current financial and fiscal crisis has exacerbated the long-term shrinking government discretion; projects for political change have lost credibility. Many citizens are aware of this situation: they turn away from party politics and stay at home on Election Day. With contributions from leading scholars in the forefront of sociology, politics and economics, this timely book will be of great interest to students and scholars throughout the social sciences as well as general readers

Buying time : the delayed crisis of democratic capitalism by Wolfgang Streeck( Book )

24 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The financial crisis keeps us on edge and creates a diffuse sense of helplessness. Well-nigh unfathomable problems lead to measures that seem like emergency operations on the open heart of the Western world, performed with no knowledge of the patient's clinical history. The gravity of the situation is matched by the paucity of our understanding of it, and of how it came about in the first place. In this book, compiled from his Adorno Lectures given in Frankfurt, Wolfgang Streeck lays bare the roots of the present financial, fiscal and economic crisis, seeing it as part of the long neoliberal transformation of postwar capitalism that began in the 1970s. Linking up with the crisis theories of that decade, he analyses the subsequent tensions and conflicts involving states, governments, voters and capitalist interests--a process in which the defining focus of the European state system has shifted from taxation through debt to budgetary "consolidation." The book then ends by exploring the prospects for a restoration of social and economic stability. Buying Time is a model of enlightenment. It shows that something deeply disturbing underlies the current situation: a metamorphosis of the whole relationship between democracy and capitalism"--
Gekaufte Zeit : die vertagte Krise des demokratischen Kapitalismus by Wolfgang Streeck( Book )

37 editions published between 2013 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Krise hält uns in Atem und erzeugt zugleich ein diffuses Gefühl der Ratlosigkeit. Auf schier unüberschaubare Problemlagen folgen Maßnahmen, die wie Notoperationen am offenen Herzen der westlichen Welt wirken - durchgeführt ohne Kenntnis der Krankengeschichte. So ernst die Lage ist, so wenig scheinen wir zu verstehen, was genau vor sich geht. Und wie es dazu kommen konnte. Wolfgang Streeck legt in seiner Frankfurter Adorno-Vorlesung die Wurzeln der gegenwärtigen Finanz-, Fiskal- und Wirtschaftskrise frei, indem er sie als Moment der langen neoliberalen Transformation des Nachkriegskapitalismus beschreibt, die bereits in den 1970er Jahren begann. Im Anschluss an die Krisentheorien der damaligen Zeit analysiert er, wie sich die Spannung zwischen Demokratie und Kapitalismus über vier Jahrzehnte entfaltet hat und welche Konflikte daraus zwischen Staaten, Regierungen, Wählern und Kapitalinteressen resultierten. Schließlich beleuchtet er den Umbau des europäischen Staatensystems vom Steuer- über den Schulden- zum Konsolidierungsstaat und fragt nach den Aussichten für eine Wiederherstellung sozialer und wirtschaftlicher Stabilität.>>Gekaufte Zeit<<ist Aufklärung par excellence, denn es zeigt, dass der gegenwärtigen Situation etwas zugrunde liegt, das uns tief beunruhigen sollte: die Transformation des Verhältnisses von Demokratie und Kapitalismus
Governing capitalist economies : performance and control of economic sectors by J R et al HOLLINGSWORTH( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
