This ninth volume of the International Papers in Political Economy (IPPE) series focuses on the theme of the need for and the development of new economic policies, especially so following the events that led to the 'great recession' of 2007 and subsequently. The volume deals with economic policies within the New Economics theoretical framework that was discussed in the eighth volume of IPPE. In doing so this volume concentrates on international issues that relate to economic policies and governance.

This book offers detailed analysis and informed comment on the type of new international economic policies in the aftermath of the financial crisis and global recession. It is essential reading for all postgraduates and scholars looking for expert discussion and debate of the issues surrounding the case for new economic policies at the global level.
