The Political Economy Reader

How can poor countries achieve economic development? How can post-communist countries make a successful transition to markets? Will the information technology revolution render the national varieties of capitalism obsolete?

The Political Economy Reader

This reader combines, in a single volume, the key writings of classical and contemporary thinkers on political economy, providing both a theoretical approach to understanding capitalism and a survey of the varieties of capitalism around the world today.

The Political Economy Reader

- Fully updated introductions to the book and each thematic chapter of readings. - Coverage of key emerging debates including climate change, the financial crisis, inequality, the digital platform economy, and COVID-19

The Political Economy Reader

The Political Economy Reader advocates a particular approach to the study of political economy - the "market-institutional" perspective - which emphasizes the ways in which markets are embedded in political and social institutions. This perspective offers a compelling alternative to the market-liberal view, which advocates freer markets and less government intervention in the economy, as if states and markets were naturally at odds with each other. The reader embraces a truly interdisciplinary approach to the study of political economy, with extensive coverage from sociology, economics, history and political science. It includes some of the most important classical and contemporary theoretical perspectives on political economy. And it engages some of the most topical debates in political economy today, such as climate change, the global financial crisis, inequality, the digital platform economy, and the COVID-19 pandemic. For political economy courses at a variety of levels and from a range of disciplines, the reader is also of interest to scholars and citizens wanting perspective on the intersection of economics, politics, and society. New to the Second Edition - More than 20 new readings included by such notables as Elinor Ostrom, E. J. Hobsbawm, Dani Rodrik, Amartya Sen, Thomas Piketty, and Mariana Mazzucato among many others. - Fully updated introductions to the book and each thematic chapter of readings. - Coverage of key emerging debates including climate change, the financial crisis, inequality, the digital platform economy, and COVID-19

Gender and the Political Economy of Development

--Cynthia Enloe, Clark University This important book ranges across contemporary debates in the study of gender and political economy.

Gender and the Political Economy of Development

"Rai subjects the projects of both national development and globalization to searching scrutiny through a gender lens. Her emphasis on the intersection of gender and other forms of inequality is very timely. An excellent text for a wide range of courses in politics, sociology and development studies." --Diane Elson, University of Essex Shirin Rai pushes us to rethink development. She brings us to ear a feminist analysis that grows out of her nuanced understanding of both China’s and India's gendered experience. Readers will find fresh ideas and sharp caveats about how patriarchy is sustained and fought over globally. --Cynthia Enloe, Clark University This important book ranges across contemporary debates in the study of gender and political economy. It situates differing gender-based theories in the context of wider political and historical processes such as colonialism, post-colonialism, Cold War politics, the New World Order, globalization and democratization. Shirin Rai focuses on the gendered nature of the political economy of development, and the shifts that have occurred as economies and states have moved from a development process that is state-focused to one that is clearly framed by globalization. Differences between men and women, and differences between women in contrasting social and geographical positions, are explored in relation to their influence on political practice. Rai considers how the structures of economic and political power frame men and women and examines the consequences of these gendered positionings. She makes important connections between the political narratives of different levels of governance and examines the discourse of empowerment at these different levels. The book concludes by reflecting on the way men and women are coping with the challenges of globalization and argues that women's movements need to re-establish the link between the recognition of difference and the redistribution of economic and social resources if they are to maintain their radical edge. This will be essential reading for undergraduates and graduates in politics, development studies and gender studies.

The Political Economy of Reaganomics

According to Stephen Rousseas, economics cannot be separated from politics. Here, he provides theoretical background and insight into the ideology of supply-side economics, commonly referred to as Reaganomics. As a Post Keynesian, Rousseas is critical of supply-side economics and the Reagan administration’s attempt to counter-revolutionise the demand-side economics of the earlier twentieth century. Originally published in 1982, this title is ideal for students of Economics and Politics, as well as the general reader interested in the subject.
