The American Political Economy provides an essential foundation for coming to grips with contemporary American .

The American Political Economy provides an essential foundation for coming to grips with contemporary American politics and policy. David Robertson, University of Missouri. Conventional approaches to the study of public policy tell us that there are states and there are markets and never the twain shall meet. Marc Allen Eisner persuasively demonstrates not only that they have met but that they are joined cheek to jowl. Richard Bensel, Cornell University.

It is admirably suited for both course use and general public reading. I strongly recommend this as a core text in political economy courses and as a supplementary text in several economics and political science courses. Robert Sahr, Oregon State University.

Through a historical approach, Eisner situates the study of American political economy within a larger tional framework that integrates perspectives in American political development and economic sociology.

Policy debates are often grounded within the conceptual confines of a state-market dichotomy, as though the two existed in complete isolation. In this innovative text, Marc Allen Eisner portrays the state and the market as inextricably linked, exploring the variety of institutions subsumed by the market and the role that the state plays in creating the institutional foundations of economic activity.

Through a historical approach, Eisner situates the study of American political economy within a larger evolutionary-institutional framework that integrates perspectives in American political development and economic sociology. This volume provides a rich understanding of the complexity of U.S. economic policy, explaining how public policies become embedded in bureaucracy and reinforced by organized beneficiaries and public expectations. This path dependent layering process helps students better understand the underlying historical dynamics, which provide a clearer sense of the constraints faced by policymakers now and in the future. Thorough coverage of the entitlement crisis, globalization’s impact on the U.S. political economy, and the recent financial crisis in the final chapters demonstrate the importance of this historical institutionalist framework.
