Author Info

  • Kevin O'Rourke

Abstract

After tracing the link between politics and trade over a millennium, Kevin O'Rourke identifies permanent features of international economic relations. His timing is perfect. The crisis has switched the balance of power. Government is back in the driving seat and corporations look fragile. No one can predict how the cards will fall, but politics is making a come-back and will inevitably play a bigger role in shaping our future.
