Developmental Policy and the State studies the changing face of government support for endogenous development. In the past two decades, governments have assumed a more conscious economic role as a stabilizing force to maintain low fiscal deficits and low inflation growth paths. This important reference work provides an integrated discussion of the development theory at the heart of interventionist government economic policy. The opening chapters analyze the role of state intervention and its impact on development theory, present the Developmental State model, and discuss the regulatory and development roles of a state in a market economy. The book also critiques the European Union's regional and industrial policies and contrasts EU and Caribbean developmental policies with the Developmental State approach. Karagiannis concludes his discussion with developmental theory-based policy solutions for an increasingly globalized world economy.

Review quote

Karagiannis' book covers a broad canvas indeed, and is to be welcomed for its advocacy and development of a policy agenda and role of the State which runs so much against the dominant mainstream. It has argued persuasively for the need for a developmental role for the State. * Social and Economic Studies *
