Growth and Welfare in Advanced Capitalist Economies. How Have Growth Regimes Evolved?
A CIVICA webinar to present and discuss the book co-edited by Anke Hassel and Bruno Palier entitled “Growth and Welfare in Advanced Capitalist Economies. How Have Growth Regimes Evolved?” recently published by Oxford University Press.
After a brief presentation by co-authors Anke Hassel, Professor of Public Policy at the Hertie School and Bruno Palier, CNRS Research Director at Sciences Po’s Centre for European Studies and Comparative Politics, the book will be discussed by distinguished scholars all belonging to CIVICA, The European University of Social Sciences:
- Bela Greskovits, Central European University, Vienna
- Anton Hemerijck, European University Institute, Florence
- Alexander Kentikelenis, Università Bocconi, Milan
- Waltraud Schelkle, London School of Economics.
This book takes stock of the major economic challenges that advanced industrial democracies have faced since the early 1990s and the responses by governments to them.
It has three goals: firstly, to further our understanding of how political economies have transformed over the past decades; secondly, to analyse the contribution of governments to these changes, by looking at their growth strategies and thirdly, to highlight and analyse the role of the reforms of welfare systems in this transformative change.
