Product description


GÇ£In this magisterial account, Iversen and Soskice demonstrate that contemporary advanced capitalism is based on the presence of skilled and educated workers and geographically rooted ecologies of organizations, people, and institutions. They show us why populism is currently challenging advanced capitalist democracies, but also why we have many reasons to be optimistic about the future.n++?'Michael Storper, author of Keys to the City: How Economics, Institutions, Social Interaction, and Politics Shape Development
