"After a turbulent century of unprecedented social and technologica l change, capitalism has emerged as the dominant ideology and model for economic growth in the richest, most developed countries. Free enterprise is off the leash and chasing new opportunities for profit making across the globe, from U.S. prisons to textile swearshops in Asia. But only thirty years ago economic growth was faltering, inflation rising and the Left were arguing for greater state intervention in industry. How did this remarkable transformation happen? And what price have we paid in the process? This accessible and persuasive book provides a clear and concise history of the problems facing the economies of Europe, Japan and the US during the latter half of the twentieth century and questions whether the restoration of profitability and the re-assertion of market forces has really brought the levels of economic growth and prosperity that were hoped for. Andrew Glyn looks at the impact the rapidly developing economies of China and the South on the more developed economies of the North. He asks: is a "race to the bottom" inevitable as the anti-globalizers predict, with welfare states being dismantled to meet the demands of competitive advantage? Or is there an alternative economic and social model which can achieve more sustainable, equitable andfulfilling outcomes?" (from the dj). Contents : 1. Challenges to capital. 2. Austerity, privatization and deregulation. 3. Finance and ownership. 4. Globalization and international economic relations. 5. Labour's retreats. 6. Growth and stability. 7. Welfare and income inequality. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 35.00
