This chapter gathers the results of the analyses of chapter 4, and proposes a cluster analysis of types of capitalism. Empirical clustering patterns are discovered that are interpretable in terms of the typology of chapter 3. Specific characteristics concerning political systems, specialization in scientific, technological, and industrial activity, as well as macroeconomic performance are shown to be associated with particular types of capitalism.
