The volume is a concerted effort to detect the direction of economic patriotism after the world economic crises in 2008. If the prediction that state-permeated economies will soon play a defining role proves to be correct, we can expect major changes in the multilateral institutional environment. Perhaps liberal world economic model will be replaced by a new state-orchestrated framework? Or will the current wave of organized economic development lose steam when its inherent problems—such as inequality and rent-seeking—begin to limit the potential advantages of state coordination? Will the European Union successfully reform its ailing structures and create a model capable of competing successfully with state-permeated economies? These are the questions posed by this volume, that we hope will inspire further research.
