The Limits of Regulation: A Critical Analysis of Capitalist Development
Edward Elgar Publishing
The main aim of this book is to offer a critical survey of the regulation approach, an influential theoretical school born in the 1970s and belonging to the neo-Marxist and radical political economy traditions. The author’s persuasive argument is that regulation, in order to explain capitalist development, resorts to historicism and institutionalism and thereby adopts a ‘middle-range’ methodology. He contends that both its theoretical and methodological perspectives are currently unfit for this purpose.
