The decades following the Second World War have been depicted as a kind of "golden age of capitalism." In Western societies, an unprecedented economic growth and a balancing of the competing claims of capital and labour had, apparently, been brought under the control of political and democratic institutions. However, efforts to combine this outstanding economic performance with social security appear to be endangered half way through the first decade of the 21st century. This book draws together an international team of contributors, including Douglass North, Harold Demsetz and Michael Piore to assess the current world order.
