Rethinking Global Political Economy: Emerging Issues, Unfolding Odysseys

By Mary Ann Tétreault; Robert A. Denemark et al. | Go to book overview

knowledge such as institutional economics (e.g. on the social constitution of markets) and the creation of new knowledges such as world-systems analysis (e.g. on global commodity chain analysis and world cities) which all can find a place under this intellectual umbrella. There is a new common sense: heterodoxy and eclectism are necessary in new circumstances where no discipline can claim a monopoly of social knowledge. As both Peterson and Gills (this volume) affirm from very different starting points, transdisciplinary knowledge is required to study transnational processes.


Notes
1
My favorite example of the overpowering influence of a metageography comes in nature books where animals and plants are "nationalized" as in "British Trees" or "British Insects." This represents the power of what I call below a mosaic metageography based upon nation-states. There are even books on "British Birds" although many are migratory and spend much of the year either far north or far south of Britain.
2
Since this is the metageography with which all readers will have grown up, and continue to carry around in their heads, unlike the previous cases I have no need to use a figure to show this geographical imaginary.
3
For elaborations on this, see Slater and Taylor (1999).
4
This is, of course, the message of Rostow's (1960) most famous development ladder in a "non-communist manifesto."
5
This section draws heavily on the argument in Helleiner (1999).
6
Of course, this situation has been recently highlighted by the creation of the euro replacing national currencies in most of the EU. In the resistance to this move, critics have betrayed a remarkable statism in their argument that their territory (e.g. the UK) needs flexibility in its fiscal management while omitting to notice its own fiscal penalties imposed on subregions (e.g. the north of England where extra unemployment is deemed necessary to dampen inflation in the south of England).
7
This section draws from and builds upon Taylor (1996b, 2000).
8
This section draws from and builds upon Taylor (1997b).
9
Arrighi does not use the phrase "embedded statism" but identifies it clearly as "the bias of our conceptual equipment in favour of space-of-places that defines the process of state formation" (1994:84).
10
She attempts to subvert "the exclusivity of the 'disciplines' and sub-disciplines of social science …. [because] our times no longer allow us the comfort of separatist specialisation in the social sciences, and the attempt has to be made at synthesis and blending …" (Strange 1996: xv-xvi).
