Beyond the Developmental State : Industrial Policy into the Twenty-first Century, Hardback Book

Beyond the Developmental State : Industrial Policy into the Twenty-first Century Hardback

Edited by Ben Fine, Jyoti Saraswati, Daniela Tavasci

Part of the IIPPE series


Moving beyond abstract economic models and superficial descriptions of the market, Beyond the Developmental State analyses the economic, political and ideological interests which underpin current socio-economic processes.

Through this approach, the contributors show the close interrelation between states and markets in both national and international contexts.

Drawing on a wide range of case studies and themes, the book exposes the theoretical and empirical limitations of the developmental state paradigm, offering alternatives as well as discussing the policy implications and challenges they raise.

For scholars, students and practitioners of development, Beyond the Developmental State presents a decisive break with the old dogmas of both neoliberal orthodoxy and theories of 'market-imperfection', and outlines theoretically and empirically grounded alternatives.
