This book examines current issues in the world economic order - employment and international labour markets, volatility in foreign exchange markets, deregulation of financial markets - and asks whether we need new policies and institutions to manage the global economy. Writing from a predominately Keynesian perspective the contributors suggest a range of policy options.

MEDIA REVIEWS
significant contributions * New Statesman & Society *
This is an indispensable guide for trade unionists who still want to understand the scope which exists for nation states to adopt progressive policies. * Labour Research *
Nothing can detract from a sober analysis, and ... there is plenty of that in this book ... a nice spread of styles and approaches. None of the chapters are beyond the comprehension of an intellectually curious reader of the serious press ... What is distinctive about this book is it deals with its particular characterisation of the contemporary international economy ... is that the emphasis remains upon the management of that economy ... a major contribution. * Renewal *
Although this is a volume written and edited by economists, it is more than sufficiently policy- and indeed political economy-oriented to attract a far wider audience ... One of the considerable list of volumes marking the thirty years since Bretton Woods, this must surely be among the best ... commendably sensitive to the need for a clear vision of just what economic policy and institutions are supposed to accomplish ... The contributions are well linked and cross-referenced, which adds to the obvious coherence of the volume. * Journal of European Public Policy *
This book provides a very useful guide to the degree and dimensions of globalisation. * International Affairs *
Essential reading for researchers, policy makers, analysts, and writers on current economic issues. * Dawn Magazine *
Michie and Grieve Smith's book is firmly rooted in a neo-Keynesian political economy ... contains much of interest and relevance. * Local Economy *
