The financial crisis of 2008-2009 and the "Great Recession" that it precipitated highlight a number of important questions about the governance of contemporary capitalism. How do shortcomings in existing market governance institutions help to account for trends of rising economic inequality and financial instability? What new forms of market governance would better embody norms of stability, equality and justice? And how do present political conditions both constrain and enable possibilities for reform?
This volume brings together an array of leading thinkers to consider these pressing questions about market governance and its potential reform. Contributors combine in-depth empirical analysis with innovative explorations of alternative arrangements to consider challenges of market governance in advanced and developing countries, as well as global and regional organizations.
New Visions for Market Governance will be of interest to students and scholars in a wide range of areas including international and comparative political economy, public and social policy, and normative social theory.
