About this product
- DescriptionCapitalism Reassessed provides a broad view of different types of advanced capitalist ecomic systems and is based on an empirical analysis of twenty-one OECD nations. The book looks at why capitalism developed in Western Europe rather than elsewhere. It shows the close influences of the cultural system on the ecomic system. The analysis compares the ecomic and social performance of the capitalist ecomic systems along a variety of ecomic and social criteria. It also analyzes how capitalism will change in the twenty-first century.
