In an era of post-globalisation, the global political economy needs restructuring. This textbook examines the challenges facing the world economy as a result of climate change, social and economic inequality and provides future-oriented solutions. Andersson clearly presents and explains key concepts from Global Political Economy (GPE) to show how these can be used to design and analyse potential reconstructions of the global political economy, offering the analytical tools and inroads to this reconstruction.
With a comprehensive exploration of the different ideological pathways that change might take, through intersecting dimensions of gender, race and class, the author expertly guides the reader through thematic chapters such as:
* The political economy of everyday life
* Regulation of global trade
* Global value chain production
* Financial markets
This textbook will help students and non-specialist readers to see that global economic change is possible and show how core concepts from GPE can enable clear thinking about a global future that is environmentally, socially and economically sustainable.
