The elections of Bill Clinton and Tony Blair in the 1990s saw the consolidation and completion of critical aspects of the Reagan-Thatcher fiscal agenda. This impressive book critically analyzes this process. It has been previously thought that this process of adopting common fiscal policies was caused by economic integration and globalization, Fiscal Policy From Reagan to Blair reveals a much more comprehensive explanation - one that includes domestic factors. Whether fiscal policy conversion is seen as a good or a bad thing, this book shall unite both left and right in better explaining the process. Students and academics of international political economy, public policy and politics will find this book to be a good addition to their reading lists.

About the Series

Routledge Frontiers of Political Economy

This has taken many forms, from methodological critiques of its excessive formalism, to concern about its failure to connect with many of the most pressing social issues. This series provides a forum for research which is developing alternative forms of economic analysis. Reclaiming the traditional 'political economy' title, it refrains from emphasising any single school of thought, but instead attempts to foster greater diversity within economics.
