Greece's New Political Ecomy traces the course of Greece from a postwar developmental state to its current participation in the Euro zone. Taking an invative comparative approach, George Pagoulatos examines the political ecomy of financial interventionism and liberalization, banking politics, relations between the government and central bank, the winners and losers of financial reform, the effects of globalization and EMU and the implications of the new ecomic role of the state. This book will be a useful reference work for anyone seeking to understand the Greek political ecomy in the light of major contemporary debates.
GEORGE PAGOULATOS holds degrees in law, sociology and politics from the University of Athens and the University of Oxford, where he was a Rhodes scholar. He was a postdoctoral fellow of Princeton University and is now Assistant Professor of Politics at the Athens University of Economics and Business.
