About this book

The book provides new insight into the role of organised business interests. It supports the concept of political economy and demonstrates how it transcends the limitations of CPE or IPE, to form a coherent whole. The book maps the conflict, convergence and influence of organized business interests in the context of regional integration.

Reviews

'Based on empirical research in the region, this book provides us with valuable new insights about the organisation of business interests in Mercosur countries informed by relevant theoretical frameworks.'

- Professor Wyn Grant, University of Warwick, UK

'In Globalization, Regionalization and Business Schelhase provides a compelling analysis of a topic that will be a critical component of policy and academic analysis in the years ahead. The world business environment is being redefined by the emergence of new actors and new 'paradigms' where inter-linkages between regional and global markets on the one hand will become increasingly complex, as will the interface between business especially emerging regional/global businesses in emerging markets and governments on the other. The detailed and original empirical work the author brings to the Mercosur, a key region of the 21st century world economy, carries broader theoretical and policy implications. This book is a very effective compass in navigating the turbulent and uncharted waters of the 21st century world economy.'

- Jean-Pierre Lehmann, Professor of International Political Economy, IMD,& Founding Director of The Evian Group
