The Asian Financial Crisis dramatically illustrated the vulnerability of financial markets in emerging, transitional, and advanced economies. In response, international organizations insisted that legal reforms could help protect markets from financial breakdowns. Sitting at the nexus between the legal system and the market, corporate bankruptcy law ensures that the casualties of capitalism are treated in an orderly way. Halliday and Carruthers show how global actors—including the IMF, World Bank, UN, and international professional associations—developed comprehensive norms for corporate bankruptcy laws and how national policymakers responded in turn. Drawing on extensive fieldwork in China, Indonesia and Korea, the authors reveal how national policymakers contested and negotiated domestic laws in the context of global pressures. The first study of its kind, this book offers a theory of legal change to explain why global/local tensions produce implementation gaps. Through its analysis of globalization, this book has lessons for international organizations and developing and transition economies the world over.

Global lawmaking by international organizations holds the potential for enormous influence over world trade and national economies. Representatives from states, industries, and professions produce laws for worldwide adoption in an effort to alter state lawmaking and commercial behaviors, whether of giant multi-national corporations or micro, small and medium-sized businesses. Who makes that law and who benefits affects all states and all market players. Global Lawmakers offers the first extensive empirical study of commercial lawmaking within the United Nations. It shows who makes law for the world, how they make it, and who comes out ahead. Using extensive and unique data, the book investigates three episodes of lawmaking between the late 1990s and 2012. Through its original socio-legal orientation, it reveals dynamics of competition, cooperation and competitive cooperation within and between international organizations, including the UN, World Bank, IMF and UNIDROIT, as these IOs craft international laws. Global Lawmakers proposes an original theory of international organizations that seek to construct transnational legal orders within social ecologies of lawmaking. The book concludes with an appraisal of creative global governance by the UN in international commerce over the past fifty years and examines prospective challenges for the twenty-first century.

The financial sector is the talk of the global village. This book highlights that, before asserting that the institutions of the financial sector deserve to be regulated, one should consider that these very institutions are themselves the discreet regulators of the markets where their activity takes place.

There have been numerous accounts exploring the relationship between institutions and firm practices. However, much of this literature tends to be located into distinct theoretical-traditional 'silos', such as national business systems, social systems of production, regulation theory, or varieties of capitalism, with limited dialogue between different approaches to enhance understanding of institutional effects. Again, evaluations of the relationship between institutions and employment relations have tended to be of the broad-brushstroke nature, often founded on macro-data, and with only limited attention being accorded to internal diversity and details of actual practice. The Handbook aims to fill this gap by bringing together an assembly of comprehensive and high quality chapters to enable understanding of changes in employment relations since the early 1970s. Theoretically-based chapters attempt to link varieties of capitalism, business systems, and different modes of regulation to the specific practice of employment relations, and offer a truly comparative treatment of the subject, providing frameworks and empirical evidence for understanding trends in employment relations in different parts of the world. Most notably, the Handbook seeks to incorporate at a theoretical level regulationist accounts and recent work that link bounded internal systemic diversity with change, and, at an applied level, a greater emphasis on recent applied evidence, specifically dealing with the employment contract, its implementation, and related questions of work organization. It will be useful to academics and students of industrial relations, political economy, and management.

Bureaucratic state elites in central banks and finance ministries play a critical role in the politics of macroeconomic policy. Highly credentialed expert officials in these organizations have come to occupy central locations on the political elites of developing countries, particularly in Latin America. These expert elites are especially influential in policy areas such as monetary and exchange rate management, which are central to economic growth and stability, as demonstrated by the emerging market financial crises of the 1990s. Addressing the cases of Mexico and Argentina from 1982 to the present and drawing on extensive interviews with key elites, this dissertation examines the interaction of evolving debates in the global field of economic policy expertise and national processes of bureaucratic elite competition. The study contributes to the study of bureaucratic state elites and the politics of economic policy in three main ways. First, the empirical chapters demonstrate the influence of bureaucratic experts on policies that include inflation stabilization in the 1980s, exchange rate management in the 1990s, and post-crisis monetary policies in the 2000s. Second, the dissertation develops a new theoretical framework for analyzing the policy preferences of bureaucratic state elites and applies this framework to the empirical cases. Previous research has emphasized the generally pro-market worldview of expert bureaucrats following a "paradigm shift" in the economics discipline during the 1970s. In contrast, the field theoretic framework developed in this dissertation stresses the dynamic and contested nature of economic knowledge and the contingent and strategic character of bureaucrats' policy positions. The framework shows how elite competition within the varying social structures of bureaucratic elites (a highly cohesive elite in Mexico compared with a relatively fragmented one in Argentina) results in very different policy-making processes in the two countries. The dissertation documents the structure of bureaucratic elites using a new relational dataset and network analysis techniques. Third, the dissertation focuses on processes of consensus formation as a means of evaluating the performance of bureaucratic experts. The findings suggest that there were major failures in the global field of policy expertise leading to the currency crises of the 1990s.
