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

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.

The crisis in the EU is unfolding, the recession in the US is persisting and poverty is becoming a reality or a threat for more and more people. Austerity policies of unprecedented depth and severity contribute to the pauperisation of people, with Greek governments leading the way. The necessary destruction of capital for getting over the crisis has been burdened on the shoulders of working people, self-employed people, small business and small farmers. Nevertheless, while absolute poverty is the most telling aspect of poverty, research in approaching this aspect is left aside, as well as the effect of the crisis in the pauperisation of people.
