Globalisation, the crisis and the state: Introduction

John H. Farrar, David G. Mayes

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The global financial crisis (GFC) has challenged much of conventional
wisdom. Our conception of globalisation has been called into question. In
particular, the Washington Consensus with its emphasis on deregulation
and the shrinking of the state has been undermined. Instead, the importance
of the state as regulator, investor and indeed economic saviour has
been emphasised. We need then to readdress the relationship between
globalisation, the crisis and the state, and this is the main objective of this
book.

The purpose of this chapter is firstly to give an overview of the main
issues arising from the relationship between globalisation, the GFC and
the modern state, and secondly to outline the contents of the other
chapters.
