Abstract

This dicussion suggests three steps. One is to retrieve the varieties of capitalism from the propaganda that claims there is no alternative to free market capitalism. Second is to examine the growing influence of American capitalism and the diversity or convergence of capitalisms in light of Enron and related episodes. Third is to probe options for the articulation of alternative capitalisms. Looking forward, one way in which this can happen is through a substantive dialogue between Asian countries and the European Union with regard to the direction of contemporary capitalism and globalization. This line of argument can function at two levels — as a broad-brush policy direction and as opening up thinking about globalization — probing the scope for choice.

Abstract

In probing metamorphoses of power and changing understandings of power, this treatment examines the question of whether there is a general trend from coercive towards cooperative and consensual forms of power over time. This reflection unpacks power in its various dimensions, considers the contributions of Gramsci and Foucault, and then examines the hypothesis of a growing trend towards cooperative forms of power in domestic politics and civil society, and in international politics.
