Remaking the Connections


  • David Neilson

    (University of Waikato, New Zealand)


The current Robert Boyer-led French Regulation School (FRS) characterizes the contemporary era as a diversity of national capitalisms. Boyer’s new approach displaces the original FRS focus on “models of development.†This article rallies against the current direction and re-engages the FRS’s earlier mid-range Marxist-influenced account of capitalist development. In particular, key concepts of “regulation†and “model of development†are reworked in the context of a revised account of the Fordist model of development. These concepts are then adapted to work up an outline of the “neoliberal model of development.†JEL classification: B50, F59, O57
