For more than two decades, Ove K. Pedersen has been interpreting the Danish Model of the political economy, analyzing how it works, and placing it in perspective against the economic models of other nations and changes in the world economy over time. His vision of how a 'negotiated economy' works has influenced international scholarship. His studies of the response to globalization and the rise of neo-liberalism show us how politics mediates the impact of economic developments. This volume brings a distinguished set of international scholars together in a wide-ranging tribute to his work. The chapters take up themes of enduring importance bearing on the role of ideas in politics, the roots of Danish economic success, and modes of coordination in the political economy. This timely book appears at a moment of great international interest in 'flexicurity' and the achievements of the Danish model. Its perspectives enrich the discussion of issues central to comparative political economy. Peter A. Hall, Krupp Foundation Professor of European Studies, Harvard University.
