Rethinking Comparative Capitalism: The New Politics of Growth and Stagnation

Lucio Baccaro, Mark Blyth (Brown University), and Jonas Pontusson (University of Geneva)


 
Bringing together a number of junior and senior scholars, this edited book project has four goals. First, to develop a robust and useable framework around the concept of growth models. Second, to problematize the macroeconomics that underpin our theories and practices in the world, and insert more “political economy” in our macro­economic assumptions. Third, to integrate work in the field of international political economy with comparative political economy research on growth models, since growth models at the country level are both constrained and enabled by how they are (dis)advantaged by the broader international economic system of which they are a part. Fourth, to move beyond typology and explore the politics of growth models, taking seriously how the interests of the few must be translated into the interests of the many for a sustainable coalition to be formed. Project duration: October 2018 to October 2021.
