Golden Age of Capitalism by Stephen A. Marglin
Book DescriptionFor some twenty years after the Second World War, Keynesian economic policies in countries of the capitalist West were successful in generating rapid growth with high employment. This 'golden age of capitalism' did not survive the economic traumas of the 1970s; nor has the more recent emphasis on monetarist policies and supply-side performance succeeded in regenerating comparable growth rates. Blending historical analysis with economic theory, this book seeks to understand the making and unmaking of this 'golden age', questions the basis of much present policy-making, and suggests alternative directions for policy.

Books By Author Stephen A. Marglin
Dismal Science, Paperback (April 2010)
Dissects the ways in which the foundational assumptions of economics justify a world in which individuals are isolated from one another and social connections are impoverished as people define themselves in terms of how much they can afford to consume.
Decolonizing Knowledge, Hardback (April 1996)
This book argues that the linear evolutionary paradigm of development that comes out of the modern Western view of knowledge is a contemporary form of colonialism. The authors propose a pluralistic vision and a decolonization of knowledge; the replacement of one-way transfers of knowledge and technology by dialogue and mutual learning.
Dominating Knowledge, Hardback (August 1990)
This volume investigates the ways in which development strategies have affected traditional cultural values and social practices. Some of the positions advanced are controversial, all are imaginative and will provoke thought and reassessment in the field.
