Книга продолжает серию публикаций работ иностранных и российских исследователей, посвященных гуманитарным проблемам экономической науки. Автор анализирует две модели капитализма - англо - американскую и `рейнскую` и приходит к выводу о превосходстве `рейнской` модели в силу ее большей экономической и социальной эффективности. Однако, как в соответствии с законом Грэшема `плохие деньги вытесняют хорошие`, так и англо - американская модель вытесняет `рейнскую`. Книга будет полезна всем, кто интересуется сравнением экономических систем, особенно тем, кто размышляет о будущем России и о направленности осуществляемых экономических реформ.

Is Japan totally exceptional or is it a typical market economy? Is the poor macroeconomic performance of the nineties down to archaic institutions or short term monetary and budgetary policies? The contributions to Japanese Capitalism in Crisis show that there can be a middle ground between these extremes and delivers two benefits: a deeper understanding of long term development and an extension of existing theory. A regulationist approach is used to examine how the periods of growth and crisis can be attributed to the institutions which govern capital accumulation. This book should prove to be invaluable to students and researchers studying the economies of Japan and other east Asian countries as well as all those interested in patterns of boom and recession worldwide.

Robert Boyer and Yves Sailard's "Theorie de la Regulation" introduced the Francophone public to one of the most important new currents in social science of the past half-century. This long-awaited translation will help broaden its impact still further. "Regulation" "Theory" focuses on the structural features of a given model and has helped enliven the examination of core economic concepts.

Countries are looking for ways to compete and increase their share of exports; this has led to the lowering of national borders and greater co-dependence. To many, this climate of globalization signals the end of the nation-state as an effective manager of national economic policy. In "States Against Markets" the contributors challenge this perceived threat to the nation-state. They examine the fundamental issues of competitiveness and market power. Some topics covered include a discussion of whether or not globalization is really a novel development, an assessment of the success of globalization as a means of convergence and uniformity across nations, an update on the Hayek vs. Keynes debate, an analysis of how all parties involved can maximize the benefits of globalization and an appraisal of the nation-state.

In the early 1980s, many observers, argued that powerful organized economic interests and social democratic parties created successful mixed economies promoting economic growth, full employment, and a modicum of social equality. The present book assembles scholars with formidable expertise in the study of advanced capitalist politics and political economy to reexamine this account from the vantage point of the second half of the 1990s. The authors find that the conventional wisdom no longer adequately reflects the political and economic realities. Advanced democracies have responded in path-dependent fashion to such novel challenges as technological change, intensifying international competition, new social conflict, and the erosion of established patterns of political mobilization. The book rejects, however, the currently widespread expectation that ‘internationalization’ makes all democracies converge on similar political and economic institutions and power relations. Diversity among capitalist democracies persists, though in a different fashion than in the ‘Golden Age’ of rapid economic growth after World War II.

This book argues that there is no single best institutional arrangement for organizing modern societies. Therefore, the market should not be considered the ideal and universal arrangement for coordinating economic activity. Instead, the editors argue, the economic institutions of capitalism exhibit a large variety of objectives and tools that complement each other and can not work in isolation. The various chapters of the book ask what logics and functions institutions follow and why they emerge, mature and persist in the forms they do.

Why are some firms successful on global markets whilst others are not? In this collection of papers, a group of distinguished international researchers examine the inter-relationship between national context, firm performance and global competitiveness. In a series of empirical studies covering major industries (such as banking, telecommunications, construction, automobiles, and airlines) in a number of European countries (Great Britain, France, Germany, Holland, Finland, Slovenia), the studies show how distinctive patterns of firm competences and capabilities arise from national contexts. These influence the way in which firms perform in response to changing technologies and competitive pressures. Thus the impact of the globalisation of economic activity may be to reinforce existing national differences in firm performance rather than producing a homogenisation and standardisation. This book will be of interest to researchers in business and management, sociology, economics and political science for its comparative organizational approach to problems of economic performance.

Very large firms, the rising significance of small and medium-sized enterprises notwithstanding, still account for most of the employment and wealth creation in Europe and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. They also to a large extent determine the political institutions that regulate the relationship between economy and society, in particular the status of workers and the way in which the public interest is brought to bear on the economy. This overview on the current transformation of corporate organization in Europe begins by asking whether there is in fact a European model of the large firm, despite the considerable differences that exist between European countries, and to what extent European integration is likely to bring about convergence on a more uniform pattern. Next, it reviews the changes in the organization of large European firms and in corporate governance in Europe during the 1990s, which took place in response to the evolution of two of the major "task environments" of firms, product markets and financial markets. Third, the paper discusses the consequences of corporate transformation for the social embeddedness of large European firms, especially the challenges posed by the ongoing changes in corporate organization to European systems of industrial citizenship of workers and to the capacity of European states and governments to hold large firms socially accountable. In conclusion, the paper emphasizes the growing autonomy of large firms as strategic actors and comments on the problems of corporate adjustment under high and endemic uncertainty.

In the following I will discuss a few conceptual issues related to the notion of complementarity between economic institutions. My brief notes are not meant to debunk the concept. Quite to the contrary, they are a plea for more sophistication in its use. My central claim is that current usage of the concept makes too demanding assumptions on the rationality of the actors designing and enacting economic institutions. Moreover, it suggests too static a view of institutions. In both respects, it seems necessary to rethink and make explicit the microfoundations of the concept of complementarity, grounding it in both a realistic theory of rational action on the one hand and a dynamic theory of social institutions on the other.

At the 18th Annual Meeting on Socio-Economics in Trier 2006, an ‘Author Meets Critics’ session, organized by Christel Lane, President of SASE, debated John Campbell's book, ‘Institutional Change and Globalization’. Critics were Colin Crouch, Wolfgang Streeck and Richard Whitley; John Campbell responded. Subsequent to the session, the participants wrote up their statements for publication in Socio-Economic Review.

What Connects Industrial Relations and Corporate Governance? Explaining Institutional Complementarity [статья]
Опубликовано на портале: 07-02-2008Martin Höpner Socio-Economic Review. 2005. Vol. 3. No. 2. P. 331-358.
The concept of institutional complementarity is central to the recent debate on the internal logics of production regimes, redirecting our attention from the effects of single institutions to interaction effects. The article provides definitions of complementarity, coherence and compatibility and discusses the ways in which different authors describe interaction effects between corporate governance and industrial relations. It turns out that some of the interaction effects are actually direct causal links rather than effects deriving from complementarity. It is argued that complementarity may be caused by both structural similarity and incoherence, and that the concept provides only weak predictions with respect to institutional change. The article is followed by comments from Bruno Amable, Robert Boyer, Colin Crouch, Peter A. Hall, Gregory Jackson, Wolfgang Streeck, and an epilogue by Martin Höpner.
How Do Financial Markets Affect Industrial Relations: an Institutional Complementarity Approach [статья]
Опубликовано на портале: 07-02-2008Bruno Amable, Ernst Ekkehard, Stefano Palombarini Socio-Economic Review. 2005. Vol. 3. No. 2. P. 311-330.
This article presents a simple formal model of institutional complementarity (IC) applied to industrial relations, and develops two important aspects of IC. We first develop a formal definition for the static and dynamic aspects of IC and then relate these to the interaction between financial relations and the outcome of a wage bargaining between firms and trade unions. Trade unions and firms have the choice between a cooperative negotiation targeting at the long-term success of the firm and a conflictual relation targeting at maximizing the current share. One important determinant in this game will be the time horizon financial investors have as they influence the realization of future gains of cooperation between workers and firms. When financial investors are patient, a pareto-superior cooperative equilibrium can be attained. On the other hand, whenever one of the two bargaining parties gets too weak, the viability even of the long-term equilibrium is threatened.

Martin Höpner's paper was written to structure discussions at a workshop of the ‘Complementarity Project’, which was held in Paris, 26–27 September 2003. The project was organized by Bruno Amable and Robert Boyer (CEPREMAP, Paris), Colin Crouch (EUI, Florence), Martin Höpner and Wolfgang Streeck (Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies, Köln). The subject of the workshop was the complementarity, real or imagined, of financial markets and industrial relations in present-day ‘varieties of capitalism’. Apart from the organizers, participants included Patrick Le Gales, Peter Hall, Gregory Jackson, Bruce Kogut, David Marsden and Pascal Petit. In the following we document short excerpts from five out of nine ‘reaction papers’ written by participants in advance of the workshop. The selections were made by Wolfgang Streeck.

Автор продолжает тему множественности моделей современного капитализма, которая обрела особую популярность в 1990–2000-е годы как антитеза абстрактным рассуждениям о всеобщей глобализации. Статья представляет собой сравнительный анализ англосаксонской и японской моделей организации фирмы и ее позиционирования на рынке. Здесь сталкиваются взгляд на фирму как преимущественно собственническую структуру и подход к фирме как единому сообществу, деятельность которого в свою очередь может быть подчинена интересам менеджеров или интересам работников.

This comparative analysis of of the coordination and control of industries in North America, Japan, and Western Europe challenges neo-classical economists' assumptions about the efficaciousness of market mechanisms as a means of enhancing economic performance. The authors also 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 economic performance of industrial sectors. The authors argue that tightly controlled sectors outperform their less-regulated counterparts in the world economy.

As the influence of labor unions declines in many industrialized nations, particularly the United States, the influence of workers has decreased. Because of the need for greater involvement of workers in changing production systems, as well as frustration with existing structures of workplace regulation, the search has begun for new ways of providing a voice for workers outside the traditional collective bargaining relationship.Works councils--institutionalized bodies for representative communication between an employer and employees in a single workplace--are rare in the Anglo-American world, but are well-established in other industrialized countries. The contributors to this volume survey the history, structure, and functions of works councils in the Netherlands, Germany, France, Spain, Sweden, Italy, Poland, Canada, and the United States. Special attention is paid to the relations between works councils and unions and collective bargaining, works councils and management, and the role and interest of governments in works councils. On the basis of extensive comparative data from other Western countries, the book demonstrates powerfully that well-designed works councils may be more effective than labor unions at solving management-labor problems.

Presenting a fresh alternative to traditional state-centered analyses of the process of European integration, Governance in the European Union clearly shows the interaction of subnational, national, and supranational actors in the emerging European polity. This "multilevel politics" approach offers a powerful lens for viewing the future course of European integration. The authors' empirical exploration of areas such as regional governance, social policy, and social movements underpins their broad conceptual and theoretical framework, providing significant new insight into European politics. Governance in the European Union will appeal to students and academics across the broad spectrum of political science, and will be of particular interest to those in European studies, public policy studies, comparative politics, and political theory.

Modern capitalism, from neo-liberalism to deregulation, has come to dominate national and international political economy. This major book addresses this convergence and provides a comprehensive overview of the implications for future capitalist diversity. Leading international contributors consider important questions. Is the preference for free markets a well-founded response to intensified global competition? Does this mean that all advanced societies must converge on an imitation of the United States? What are the implications for the institutional diversity of the advanced economies? How do we now evaluate the systems and institutions in East Asia? Political Economy and Modern Capitalism provides a practical and wide-ranging analysis of the public policy choices facing governments and business around the world. It will be invaluable reading for students and researchers of political economy, comparative politics, political science, political sociology, public policy, and administration.
