The New Geography of Capitalism: Firms, Finance, and Society: By Dixon, Adam D.

Product Details

Synopsis
Globalization is a dominant feature and force in the contemporary world, impacting all areas of business, economics, and society. This accessibly written overview of contemporary capitalism shows how the development of global supply chains, the global division of labour, and, in particular, the globalization of financial markets have become the drivers of this process, and assesses the consequences. Not only does this affect the way firms operate, it also presents challenges for the nation state. The changing geography of capitalism underpinned by an expanding global division of labour and the integration of financial markets has undercut the bordering logics necessary for the maintenance of national systems of production, national varieties of capitalism, and national systems of social protection. Reviewing a range of debates and theories across the contemporary social sciences – varieties of capitalism, financialization, global production networks – the book shows how the insights of economic geography can be usefully brought to bear in understanding current trends, and the changing relationships between global financial markets, multinational firms, and contemporary welfare states. Wide-ranging, accessibly written, and inter-disciplinary, this short book is a most useful guide for researchers and students across the social sciences.

Reviews
“Capitalism isn’t what it used to be. And Adam Dixon’s New Geography of Capitalism makes a bold case for thinking about capitalism in new ways too. Thinking about capitalism as a variegated system, but as a system nonetheless, allows Dixon to avoid the pitfalls of both flat-earth convergence theory and those of institutionalist accounts of national variety. His promising alternative takes the problematic of integration seriously, not least as an engine of new geographies.” –Jamie Peck, University of British Columbia
