Public Interest and Market Pressures
My concern in this chapter is to develop the issues raised by David Mayes in Chapter 1 by making use of the intervening chapters which he, Wolfgang Hager and Wolfgang Streeck have contributed. I start, however, with comment on Streeck’s thesis and the notion of production systems which provides his unifying theme. This then permits a consideration of the notion of human capital, its bearing upon the management, (private, public and mixed (corporatist)), of production systems — triad-wide, EC-wide, national, regional and private, including multinational firms. The discussion continues with comments on corporate governance issues and corporatist arrangements before turning to convergence and Eastern European countries, ending with a comment about research and related policy-making issues.
