Dictionary of political economics
Capitalism, institutions, power
The economy is fundamentally political, and politics cannot be understood without economic analysis. This premise of the interdependency between these two areas is essential in understanding contemporary forms of capitalism. Political economics provides powerful tools to understand the contingency of economic phenomena and the social choices that they constantly bring about.
From "Austerity" to “Work” to “The 2007 Financial Crisis”, political scientists, sociologists and economists define and discuss key concepts, theoretical perspectives, and societal controversies in this vast research area. This dictionary provides a unique and pluralist synthesis of contemporary knowledge in political economics.
