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.

It will be an invaluable read for academics and students in industrial relations, political economy and other social science disciplines addressing the formulation of work and welfare related policies. AB – Slovenia stands out as the only post-communist country to have established acorporatist system and centralized wage bargaining at the national level in the1990s. This article analyses the emergence and sustainability of Sloveniancorporatism as well as the ways in which it has shaped policymaking during theeconomic crisis. Drawing on recent advances in institutional analysis, this articledevelops a coalitional argument to account for the emergence of centralizedwage bargaining in the 1990s and for decentralization in more recent years.

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 and dictatorships, bringing both fields under a joint conceptual umbrella.

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.

In order to negotiate this autonomy and these transactions, local and regional interests are incorporating themselves into some policy arrangements with the local/regional state. Despite the demise of corporatism at a national level, it re-appears at a decentralised or devolved level as part of a mode or modes of regulation consistent with the new circumstances. What this research examines is the relationship between the decentralisation of state functions stemming from the decentralisation of production and corporatism. France and one of its largest regions was chosen to study because they represent an unpromising case because of the historical antipathy to corporatism. In the circumstances of the “new international division of labour” and the formal decentralisation of state powers and means of financing them in France, since 1982, regional interest groups have organised within a concerted framework with the recently empowered local/regional state.
