3 edge, methods and theory. I turn now to some of my own reflections on this score. Some Reflections My first proposition is that if we are interested in analyzing the performance and dynamic properties of the world's economies, it is only at significant peril that comparative economists can overlook noneconomic or "political" factors. This is not to say that it is illegitimate to abstract from non-economic factors for particular purposes; rather, such abstraction should occur only with cogni zance of the influences being suppressed. I have argued elsewhere that the analytical compromise in suppressing noneconomic variables is greater for the study of planned than for market economies. [7] Borrowing from Polanyi [8], it is claimed that in market sys tems the economic sphere is disembedded from (separate and not subordinate to) the political, social and cultural spheres, while in planned systems the economic sphere is embedded in the noneconomic spheres. To be sure, market economies are strongly affected by political and cultural factors, but planned economies have and often exercise the potential to let political goals dominate in making production, allocational, or distributional choices. Indeed, it is difficult in practice to separate out what are political and what are economic decisions in planned systems.

This revision of the best-selling text continues to analyze and explain economic systems using standard supply, demand, and cost analysis, along with property rights. Since the first edition appeared in 1990, much of the world has been going through one of history's great economic upheavals, in which state-managed economies of the Soviet type are transforming themselves into market-based systems. Coverage in this second edition reflects these changes with an all-new chapter on transitional economies. All graphs, tables, and other statistical data have also been updated, and a new appendix to chapter one develops the notion of common property to analyze problems of resource depletion and environmental degradation. Now in a convenient new format, Comparative Economic Systems, Second Edition will be published in two volumes instead of the original three. Volume II will appear in Fall 1997 as will a combined hardcover edition of Volume I and II.

Comparative Economic Systems: Culture, Wealth and Power in the 21st Century explains how culture, in various guises, modifies the standard rules of economic engagement, creating systems that differ markedly from those predicted by the theory of general market competition. This analysis is grounded in established principles, but also assumes that individual utility seeking may be culturally determined, that political goals may take precedence over public well being, and that business misconduct may be socially detrimental.

This third edition of H. Stephen Gardner's classic text is the essential guide to the world's different economies and the institutions which underpin them. On the face of things, there would appear to be less variation between different national economies since the beginning of the twenty first century. With a few exceptions, market-based capitalism has become the dominant force and this has been reflected in increased international trade and the march of globalization. However, the differences between nations' economic systems are still marked an several new factors have come into play. These are fully explored in this book and include: financial crises in Asia and Latin America the rise of China and India as economic powers the introduction of the Euro and enlargement of the European Union elections in Latin AmericaAmerica, leading to a "left turn" in several countries the ongoing situation in the Middle East The book differs from other textbooks in international economics and business by taking a region-by-region approach. The book thus provides an up-to-the-minute guide to the major players in the world economy, couched in non-technical language that can be used by all students of economics, politics and international business.

Gregory and Stuart have revamped this definitive text to mirror major changes within the global economy of the 21st century. In addition to a new title, the book now features more emphasis on transition, the acceleration of globalization, present trading agreements, and recent exchange rate regimes. The authors have incorporated the latest ideas on privatization, the changing role of the state, and developments in corporate governance. The discussion of key regional clusters covers Asia, as well as Western and Eastern Europe—giving students a wide variety of case studies for comparison.
