Between Cant And Corporatism

Therefore, the logic of these circumstances leads to the argument that decentralisation is a form of This paper argues that Russia’s choice of economic organisation, which is based on the renewed role of the state, is a response to the existence of severe transaction costs, and subsequent mitigation of contractual incompleteness in the absence of a strong property rights system. Ill-defined property rights have historically hampered formation of business classes in Russia, reducing the necessity for appropriate market infrastructure. This working paper analyses the shift from corporatist to liberal economic policy regimes in Zimbabwe that led to the crisis of the late 1990s. It outlines the rationale for both regimes, the reasons for their introduction and major achievements and failures, and how they contributed to the subsequent adoption of the dysfunctional policies of the late 1990s.

Inspired by Harbour House, our HQ which provides a literal and metaphorical ‘home’ for the ECPR family, this series seeks to open doors to some of the most pressing issues and challenges in the discipline.

The state failure evident in response to Covid-19 undermines the case for a greater government role in the direction of the economy. It is bizarre that many are calling for more power and more responsibility for the very same bureaucracies that have shown catastrophic failures. The state must, to regain public trust, focus on effectively delivering traditional demands for essential public services and safety. This book is the first conceptual and comparative empirical work on the relation between corporatism and dictatorships, bringing both fields under a joint conceptual umbrella.

The paper addresses both micro and macroeconomic themes, including international experiences of labour market reform, employment and social policies, insider-outsider and institutionally determined unemployment, the German system of collective bargaining and the importance of tripartite corporatist agreements. The paper concludes that reform in the German labour market should proceed through rather than against the existing institutions of social partnership, possibly with a new role for government in strengthening incentives for both unions and employers to act in a socially responsible way. In the comparative study of Denmark, the Netherlands and Austria, Mikkel Mailand explores the roles of social partners in regulating work and welfare through corporatist arrangements. This insightful book illustrates how the frequency of tripartite agreements has either been stable or has increased since the Great Recession of 2008, in spite of challenges from trade unions’ loss of power and political developments.

Free markets, limited government, democracy and individual rights have delivered immense human prosperity. They claim the crisis has shown the need for a bigger state as well as a new mission for business that downgrades the importance of profit.

We investigate factors that have influenced the professionalization of accounting in five Latin American countries . Through comparative historical institutional analysis of corporatism in those countries, we explore the role of the organized labor movement and State-labor relations in the professionalization of accounting. Using a combination of primary sources and secondary sources, we identify the critical junctures, self-reinforcing sequences and reactive sequences involved in State regulation of accountants. We find that State policies pertaining to the incorporation and ongoing activity of organized labor movements were important influences on the evolution of the accounting profession. Generally, periods of corporatism that featured inducements for the labor movement were conducive to achieving market closure and the emergence and growth of professional accounting bodies. Developments in laws relating to organized labor bodies usually preceded the promulgation of regulations directed specifically at endorsing the formation and operation of professional accounting associations.
