Rather than proposing a blue-print for a more equable economic system in South Africa, this book presents the results and implications of research on both the history and current dynamics of the South African economy, from World War II to the present. The authors analyze a range of strategic economic trajectories, linking these to the shifting balance of economic and political power within South Africa. However, their approach is not prescriptive; instead, they set the boundaries within which the economic and political debates are conducted. They also discuss the theoretical arguments involved in the propositions that they and others have put forward. In this and other respects - such as the data presented and the fact that each chapter is written in a self-contained fashion so that particular topics can be studied in isolation from others - this study serves as a textbook of the political economy of South Africa.

Debates on the role of the state and the viability of Canadian economic development are especially intense during periods of change, such as the contemporary era of globalization. In this completely revised, updated, and enlarged second edition of The Political Economy of Canada Professors Howlett, Netherton, and Ramesh outline the principal structural elements of the Canadian political economy and describe the importance of such factors as resources, social class, and international trade. The authors stress the significance of political institutions at the national, international, and subnational levels that substantially affect the production and distribution of wealth. Three chapters consider the strengths and weaknesses of major approaches to Canada's political economy, the liberal and socialist theories as well as the staples approach pioneered by Harold Innis. Subsequent chapters explore the structure and organization of, and the interrelationships between, the state,labour, and capital in Canada, and show how their fragmented and decentralized nature limits the capacity of governments to 'manage' a globalized economy. The book outlines the history of the domestic political economy and examines how Canada is linked to the international political economy through the World Trade Organization and NAFTA. Particular attention is devoted to the constraints imposed on the Canadian state by a market-oriented, resource-exporting economy and by growing reliance on US trade. The final chapters examine monetary and fiscal management and industrial policy, demonstrating how these policy arenas are shaped by ideology, new globalizing and regionalizing constraints, and the (dis)organization of the major policy actors.
