Global Social Economy Development, work and policy Synopsis

This book addresses `global social economy' which addresses the relation of capitalism to human flourishing, the role of international governance in the world economy, the transformation of work and use of time in internationalizing economies, cross-country developments in gender, poverty, and ageing, and ethics economic policy issues in the international economy. This edited collection examines the social nature of capitalism today, the possibilities for social and economic development in the world under the democratic leadership of the United Nations, and the middle ground between market and hierarchy occupied by gift exchange as a means of coordinating economic value creation and the creation of knowledge. It considers long term issues in the global social economy concerning gender and discrimination, intergenerational poverty transmission, and the role of ageing. From a variety of internationally acclaimed contributors, this collection introduces new social economic perspectives on the global economy that contest the neoliberal Washington Consensus view dominant until recent financial crises.

Global Social Economy Development, work and policy Press Reviews

This collection offers readers instructive and cutting-edge contributions to social economy in a global context. Its focus is development, but in my view it offers the reader much more. Important contributions are made in the economics of knowledge; democratic institutions and development; the social economics of time and work; poverty transmission, gender and ageing, and in ethical dimensions of contemporary global capitalism. This book will be of appeal to scholars and students with interests in development in contemporary neo-liberal capitalism. The contributors are to be commended for their insightful analyses and the editor for bringing these works to fruition in this excellent collection.
