The politics of growth models and populism

In my new essay, The Politics of Growth Models and Populism in East-Central Europe, I embed my research on populism in the growth model perspective.


 

In my new essay, The Politics of Growth Models and Populism in East-Central Europe, I embed my research on populism in the growth model perspective. Out now in the Economic Sociology Newsletter published by the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies (MPfIG). The growth model framework allows for an elegant, critical synthesis of economic and political factors, thereby bringing conceptual clarity into a field burdened by a mushrooming of concepts. The growth model perspective is becoming the dominant analytical lens in comparative political economy. By neglecting this discussion, the studies on Eastern Europe, including my own previous work, risk getting isolated from broader theoretical movements in the literature. I am grateful for the opportunity to the MPIfG team, especially the editor Marcin Serafin, to publish this piece in the Economic Sociology Newsletter, ideal to workshop ideas in progress and reach the comparative political economy crowd.
