Description

Developing an original blend of perspectives from the fields of international and comparative political economy, this book presents an innovative and in-depth account of the contemporary political economy of the southern cone of Latin America: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay.

It identifies a new and distinctive model of regional capitalist development emerging in the southern cone and a complex relationship with both the global political economy and the five distinctive national political economies in the region. Ranging across the contours of labour, business, states and regionalist processes, Phillips assesses the significance of the Southern Cone Model for the ways in which we understand contemporary capitalist development at both national and transnational levels.

Reviews

'Nicola Phillips's book is a significant contribution, both in theoretical and empirical terms, not only to the fields of IPE and CPE, but also to the sub-fields of regionalism and development. Scholars and students alike will benefit greatly from reading this work.' - International Affairs
