Show Summary Details


This introductory chapter discusses Capitalism and Europeanization. Europeanization is conceived of as a top-down process that is implemented at and adjusted to the national level. However, it can also be conditioned to be a bottom-up national initiative. Recent endeavors in a comparative political economy have emphasized the resilience of coordinated market economies. Detailed empirical studies have examined how different European systems of political-economic governance cope with and respond to an European impetus for liberalization.
