Conclusion: The Formation of a New Patrie in the Multipolar World-System

  • Tamás GerőcsEmail author
Part of the International Political Economy Series book series (IPES)


This volume intends to broaden the scope of ‘comparative capitalism’ within the varieties of capitalism (VoC) tradition and to serve as a forum for exploring the idea of ‘economic patriotism’ in the present-day capitalist world-system. Posing critical questions about the tensions between liberal and authoritarian forms of interventionism, as well as potentially new hybrid forms of ‘state-permeated’ development, the volume seeks to advance research into economic nationalism, authoritarian neoliberalism, and various rent-seeking behaviours that come to define not only national policies but also global economic governance. The virtue of this volume is that it provides a thorough structural analysis of recent shifts in the global economy and their uneven effects on economic policy-making in both developing peripheral and advanced core countries.
