This work challenges the popular view that globalization threatens the role of the nation-state in determining national policy. It examines the fundamental issue of competitiveness and market power in an increasingly borderless and co-dependent world. Despite this increased threat to the nation-state as an effective manager of the national economy, the authors argue that there are a number of options and alternatives open to governments to protect themselves from the global business cycle.
The volumes in this series will provide a unique guide to many of the challenges we face at the beginning of the twenty-first century. The aim is to have scholars explore the many changes in state market relations and new citizenship practices including globalization and global governance, the nature of the market of the future, the effect of new communications technology on economic restructuring, social and economic deep integration and the role of the individual in effecting positive social change.
