This book proposes a comparative analysis of modern capitalism. It identifies five different types of modern economies: the market-based economies, Asian capitalism, the Continental European model, the social democratic economies, and the Mediterranean model. It presents their main institutional characteristics and relates the different models their political and economic dynamics. The book also assesses the likely future of the Continental European model, making a significant contribution to the 'varieties of capitalism' debate.
