Summary

Is globalization forcing "non-coordinated market economies," such as Chile, Mexico, Spain, and Portugal, to converge on an Anglo-American model?What explains national differences in social and economic policies?While theories of comparative economic advantage have dominated discussions of international trade, this book seeks to build on the hypotheses generated by the recent literature on "varieties of capitalism" to demonstrate the impact that institutions have on the national economic policy patterns of these countries.
