Structure and Agency in International Capital Mobility

Structure and Agency in International Capital Mobility
Edited with by Kenneth P. Thomas and Timothy J. Sinclair.

Synopsis

Structure and Agency in International Capital Mobility highlights the importance of mobile resources as a feature of globalization, and challenges the received wisdom about the causes and effects of international capital mobility. There seems little doubt that a sea change is taking place as a result of globalization. From a world concerned with strategic weapons and the risks of mutual annihilation, a new world order is emerging in which quite different forces loom large in the communal consciousness. In this order, resources and the jobs and prosperity they produce have - at least in the West - pushed security matters firmly into second place.
