L'Europe par le marché
Histoire d'une stratégie improbable
Europe by the Market
History of an Unlikely Strategy
In this book, Nicolas Jabko demonstrates that the European Commission deployed a strategy that invoked mulitple dimensions of the logic of the "market" to promote its political objectives of deeper European integration and accelerate the process beyond anyone's expectations.
The author shows how the European Commission sold the notion of the "market" as meaning different things to different audiences. To economic interets the market was sold as a constraint and as an emerging norm of regulaiton; to national governments the market was sold as both space for development andas a way of strengthening economic autonomy in an era of globalization.
