Building BRICS - The OECD, the Emerging Economies, and the Governance of Global Capitalism
Rupert Becket Lecture Theatre
Security, Development and Democracy Lecture Series
Much of the energy of the OECD goes into tutoring emerging economies on how to compete effectively in the global capitalist economy. This presentation explores OECD activity in this area and asks what it tells us about the institutional governance of global capitalism, and what light it throws on current approaches in IR and IPE to the issue of the relationship between states and international organizations. It concludes that the activity observed reflects a logic of global competitiveness identifiable only from within a classical Marxist framework of analysis.
Professor Cammack is the author of many books and articles on political economy of capitalism. He has written on Latin America and Africa and he is currently researching the Politics of Global Competitiveness. All papers from that research are available free from e-space open Repository.
