Summary: This book argues that the dramatic post-1970 rise in international capital mobility has not systematically contributed to the retrenchment of developed welfare states as many claim.

Rather, institutional features of the polity and the welfare state determine the extent to which the economic and political pressures
associated with globalization produce Welfare state retrenchment.
