BRUNO AMABLE THE DIVERSITY OF MODERN CAPITALISM PDF

The Diversity of Modern Capitalism Bruno Amable Abstract Capitalist economies have developed with a fair amount of diversity among themselves, which should have resulted in dramatic differences in levels of development. The fact that these differences are for the most part not noticeable may indicate that capitalism is based on such robust mechanisms that it accommodates varied institutional environments. In other words, institutional differences would be akin to national folklore, with few if any consequences for economic dynamics. If institutional specificities did have an effect, competition among nations would sooner or later lead to the adoptio

Different economic models are not simply characterized by different institutional forms, but also by particular patterns of interaction between complementary institutions which are the core characteristics of these models. Based on a theory of institutions and comparative capitalism, the book proposes an analysis of the diversity of modern economies - from America to Korea - and identifies five different models: the market-based Anglo-Saxon model; Asian capitalism; the Continental European model; the socialdemocratic economies; and the Mediterranean model.

Each of these types of capitalism is characterized by specific institutional complementarities. The question of the stability of the Continental European model of capitalism has been open since the beginning of the s: inferior macroeconomicperformance compared to Anglo-Saxon economies, alleged unsustainability of its welfare systems, too rigid markets, etc. The book examines the institutional transformations that have taken place within Continental European economies and analyses the political project behind the attempts attransforming the Continental model.

It argues that Continental European economies will most likely stay very different from the market-based economies, and caat political strategies promoting institutional change aiming at convergence with the Anglo-Saxon model are bound to meet considerableopposition. Excerpt At the start of the twenty-first century the role of institutions and the conditions for institutional change are at the core of the economic debate in Europe.

At the end of the s the discussion about the relative merits of different models of capitalism seemed to be very clear. Comparative analysis showed that Europe and Japan had all but caught up with the usa in terms of gdp per capita, not simply by adopting the us methods of work organization, but by developing specific modes of organization that proved to be superior to their American counterparts.

As a result, the usa was losing ground in terms of industrial competitiveness, as witnessed by the growing trade deficits and the loss of market shares in manufacturing. Deficiencies in the us model were observed in a number of areas, the most prominent being the financing relationship and the pattern of corporate governance, as well as the employment relationship.

This explained why the manufacturing sector was in much better shape in Germany or Japan than in the usa. Also, differences in the degree of centralization of wage bargaining, employment protection, and more generally the labour-market institutions encouraged different attitudes with respect to cooperation in Full access to this book and over 94, more Over 14 million journal, magazine, and newspaper articles Access to powerful writing and research tools Book details.
