ANTHEM FRONTIERS OF GLOBAL POLITICAL ECONOMY


The Anthem Frontiers of Global Political Economy series seeks to trigger and attract new thinking in global political economy, with particular reference to the prospects of emerging markets and developing countries. Written by renowned scholars from different parts of the world, books in this series provide historical, analytical and empirical perspectives on national economic strategies and processes, the implications of global and regional economic integration, the changing nature of the development project, and the diverse global-to-local forces that drive change. Scholars featured in the series extend earlier economic insights to provide fresh interpretations that allow new understandings of contemporary economic processes.

  1. The Entrepreneurial State
     
    Debunking Public vs. Private Sector Myths
    Mariana Mazzucato

    Named one of the best books of 2013 by the �Financial Times�, �Huffington Post� and �Forbes�, this debate-shifting book debunks the myth of the State as a static bureaucratic organization only needed to �fix� market failures, leaving dynamic entrepreneurship and innovation to the private sector. Case studies ranging from the innovations that make the iPhone so �smart� to the current developments in clean technology reveal the reality, whereby the private sector only invests after the entrepreneurial State has made the bold, high-risk investments.

  13. Economics of the 1%
     
    How Mainstream Economics Serves the Rich, Obscures Reality and Distorts Policy
    John F. Weeks

    How much do economists really know? In most cases, they claim to have profound knowledge but in fact understand little and obscure almost everything. This book exposes the myths of mainstream economics and explains why current policies fail to serve the interests of the vast majority of people in the United States, Europe and elsewhere. Instead, they serve the few, increasing inequality and poverty.
