Suivre l’évolution d’un paradigme au gré des transformations des capitalismes contemporains, R. Boyer (dir), Avril 2018, Editions des maisons des sciences de l’homme associées, Collection interdisciplinaire EMSHA , La Plaine Saint Denis.
This book presents the reader with an insight into the intellectual trajectory of a group of researchers who have sought to shed light on certain questions related to research on economics and society according to the approaches developed by the Theory of Regulation. through a permanent back and forth between the teachings and predictions of the conceptual framework developed to account for the rupture of the glorious Thirties and the reality of the evolutions observed since then.
The peculiarity of this book is to show the adjustment of this paradigm from year to year until the contemporary period. In a way, he proposes to visit the laboratory from which came the numerous publications derived from the Theory of Regulation.

About the Book
Democratic capitalism in developed countries has been facing an unprecedented crisis since 2008. Its political manageability is declining sharply. Both democracy and capitalism now involve crucial risks that are significantly more serious than those observed in earlier periods. The notion of policy regimes has gained new significance in analysing the possibilities for a post-neoliberal alternative. Policy innovations directed towards an economic breakthrough require both political leadership and a new economic theory. The processes of political decision making have become quite distant from the public realm, and a limited number of economic and political elites exert influence on public policy.
This book examines, from a policy regime perspective, how developed countries attempt to achieve such a breakthrough at critical junctures triggered by economic crises. It initially assesses the nature of the present crisis and identifies the actors involved. Thereafter, it provides an analytical definition of a crisis, stressing that most crises contain within them the potential to be turned into an opportunity. Finally, it presents a new analytical design in which we can incorporate today’s more globalized and fluid context.
