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


This volume makes an invaluable contribution to comparative political economy by highlighting elective affinities between multiple institutional domains of the economy. The contributors have devoted most of their attention to the logic of ‘institutional complementarities’ between different domains, and their impact on economic coordination and performance. They are less interested in the political sources of these arrangements.
