La description

This innovative book shows that regulatory regimes in resource-dependent nations have played a decisive role in the international political economy. Spanning seven continents and focusing on both advanced and developing economies, the case studies explore how the goals and modes of regulation have changed in response to new economic realities, demands from power brokers, and rules and norms for what is considered legitimate government action.
