The Politics of Technology and Jobs from the Roaring Twenties to the Great Society Jerry Prout

Special Economic Zones and Extractive Practices in Nigeria Omolade Adunbi



Chasing Automation tells the story of how a group of reform-minded politicians during the heyday of America's industrial prowess (1921–1966) sought to plan for the technological future. Beginning with Warren G. Harding and the Conference he convened in 1921, Jerry Prout looks at how the US political system confronted the unemployment caused by automation.

How do we measure and truly grasp the sweeping social and environmental effects of an oil-based economy? Focusing on the special economic zones resulting from China's trading partnership with Nigeria, this book offers a new approach to exploring the relationship between oil and technologies of extraction and their interrelatedness to local livelihoods and environmental practices. 1

How China Escaped the Poverty Trap

Working Democracies

Managing Inequality in Worker Cooperatives Joan S. M. Meyers

Yuen Yuen Ang

Cornell Studies in Political Economy March 2022 344pp 11 halftones, 1 map, 15 tables, 24 charts 9781501764561 £18.99 / $24.95 NIP

June 2022 324pp 2 b&w line drawings 9781501763687 £37.00 / $46.95 HB



Working Democracies focuses on two worker cooperatives in business since the 1970s that transformed from small countercultural collectives into thriving multiracial and largely working-class firms. Meyers shows how democratic worker ownership can provide stability and effective business management, but also shows that broad equality is not an inevitable outcome despite the best intentions of cooperative members.

Acclaimed as "game changing" and "field shifting," How China Escaped the Poverty Trap advances a new paradigm in the political economy of development and sheds new light on China's rise. How can poor and weak societies escape poverty traps? Yuen Yuen Ang launches a new paradigm grounded in complex adaptive systems, which embraces the reality of interdependence and humanity's capacity to innovate.

The Neomercantilists A Global Intellectual History Eric Helleiner

America's Rating Agencies and Financial Crisis Timothy J. Sinclair

Cornell Studies in Money November 2021 234pp 3 b&w line drawings 9781501760242 £32.00/ $39.95 HB

At a time when critiques of free trade policies are gaining currency, The Neomercantilists helps make sense of the protectionist turn, providing the first intellectual history of the genealogy of neomercantilism. Helleiner identifies many pioneers of this ideology between the late eighteenth and early twentieth centuries who backed strategic protectionism and other forms of government economic activism to promote state wealth and power.


Exposes how America's rating agencies helped generate the global financial crisis of 2007 and beyond, surviving and thriving in the aftermath. Despite widespread scrutiny, rating agencies continued to operate on the same business model and wield extraordinary power, exerting extensive influence over public policy. 2
