Industrial Policy after the Crisis provides a fresh and insightful study on the lessons that can be drawn from the global financial crisis for the analysis, definition and implementation of industrial policy.
The authors utilize a political economy framework for the analysis of industrial development post-crisis, centred on the organisation of production and stressing its importance for the wealth of nations, meaning not only rising income but also `justice and happiness'.
Examining industrial policy as a long-term vision of development, this insightful study will appeal to students in industrial and business economics, political economy and development studies, as well as policy-makers. Offering a reflection on the theoretical basis of policy decision making and recommendation, it will also be beneficial to scholars in the field of economics and politics.
