Example text

Interest organizations are strong enough to make demands on the state but insufficiently cohesive to provide it with dependable bargaining partners. Attempts to build more effective coordination also run up against prisoners’ dilemmatype collective action problems, including anticollective behaviour on the part of firms (and employees); an acquiescence in ‘inefficient inertia’, due to the sunk costs confronting agents for change; and the capacity of firms to offset the lack of complementarities by seeking competitive advantage by other means (Bebchuk and Roe 2004).

Italy’s pyramidal ownership structures and conglomerates with strong horizontal ties, spanning firms and banks, allowed pre- and post-war elites to create collaborative, defensive, and closed business networks. As for Central and Eastern Europe, King (this volume) argues that the roots of contemporary CEE economies lie in their pre-1989 class structure, in which party bureaucrats wielded power and technocrats managed production. Depending on which of these sectors gained the upper hand prior to the 1990s transition, the emerging form of economic governance reflected these relative positions of power: liberal capitalist in the case of the technocrats; oligarchic in the case of the party bureaucrats.

Inherited coordination mechanisms based on cross-class coalitions, notably between strongly organized labour and employers, also affect national responses to EMU, increased international competition, and liberalized European markets. A central choice for firms is whether to follow a high-value, high-quality product strategy or a low-price, low-cost strategy. The former requires a highly skilled and cooperative workforce, whereas the latter depends on management autonomy to reduce costs. In CMEs such as Germany and Switzerland, powerful coordination mechanisms have allowed cross-class cooperation and associated complementarities to persist, although cooperation has begun to devolve to the firm from industry level in large exporting companies (Hancké and Herrmann; Börsch, both this volume).
