Casino capitalism

with an introduction by Matthew Watson

Susan Strange
Introduction by Matthew Watson

Published by Manchester University Press

  • An important text for political economy students that is very much relevant to modern day economics and finance. The global financial crisis that Susan Strange predicted in her work has now taken place and to a large extent is still happening
  • Originally released by Basil Blackwell in 1986, and then re-released by Manchester University Press in 1998, Casino capitalism was a cutting edge discussion of international financial markets and the way they behave and the power they wield
  • Strange was the first IPE scholar to systematically think through the implications of a globalising trend in which a potentially self-regulating traders' paradise began to be harnessed as an alternative to increasingly cash-strapped welfare states
