About this product
- DescriptionAccelerating processes of ecomic globalization have fundamentally reshaped the organization of the global ecomy towards much greater integration and functional interdependence through cross-border ecomic activity. In this interconnected world system, a new form of ecomic organization has emerged: Global Production Networks (GPNs). This brings together a wide array of ecomic actors, most tably capitalist firms, state institutions, labour unions, consumers and n-government organizations, in the transnational production of ecomic value. National and sub-national ecomic development in this highly interdependent global ecomy can longer be conceived of, and understood within, the distinct territorial boundaries of individual countries and regions. Instead, global production networks are organizational platforms through which actors in these different national or regional ecomies compete and cooperate for a larger share of the creation, transformation, and capture of value through transnational ecomic activity. They are also vehicles for transferring the value captured between different places. This book ultimately aims to develop a theory of global production networks that explains ecomic development in the interconnected global ecomy. While primarily theoretical in nature, it is well grounded in cutting-edge empirical work in the parallel and highly impactful strands of social science literature on the changing organization of the global ecomy relating to global commodity chains (GCC), global value chains (GVC), and global production networks (GPN).
