Capitalist Diversity and Change

Colin Crouch (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter shows how oversimplification often results from confusion between ideal types and cases, with the latter being seen as exemplifiers of the former, rather than the former being seen as constituents of the latter. This is often combined with excessive concern with identifying national, rather than micro level, patterns of institutions. Characteristics of economies have been bundled together as coherent wholes with inadequate attention being paid to the forces which produce the bundles, and this has often been done through an account of types that has been too closely linked to the polemic between neoliberalism and social democracy.

Keywords:   capitalist diversity, typologies, nation-state, social democracy, neoliberalism, neo-institutionalist theory
