Introduction: capital and the state

See note 5 below.

Even accounting conventions are not neutral reflections of an underlying objective economic reality: see Norman Macintosh, Accounting, Accountants, and Accountability: Poststructuralist Positions (London: Routledge, 2002), especially Chapter 6.
3
See Peter Hall, Governing the Economy (New York: Oxford University Press, 1986), p. 19, for a distinction between institutions and cultural norms.

See Bob Jessop, ‘Regulation Theories in Retrospect and Prospect’, Economy and Society, 19, 2 (1990); I am indebted to Marcus Pistor for this reference.
5
Ithaca, New York: Cornell University Press, 1986; see pp. 55-60 on production profiles. Gourevitch recognizes the limitations of this approach to some degree: ‘The ambiguity of interests causes problems: preferences may derive from situations, but what if situations are unclear?’ (pp. 59-60). In truth, situations are never clear. His approach to production profiles is itself somewhat ‘ambiguous’ in that it is consistent both with a form of rational choice theory (collective actors act in their own interests) and with a Marxist economic interpretation of politics.

See especially Pouvoir politique et classes sociales (Paris: Maspéro, 1968) [English translation: Political Power and Social Classes(London: New Left Books, 1974)].
7
See John Holloway and Sol Picciotto, eds, State and Capital: A Marxist Debate (London: Edward Arnold, 1978), especially the editors’ introduction and Hirsch’s essay, ‘The State Apparatus and Social Reproduction: Elements of a Theory of the Bourgeois State’.
8
See the discussion of Offe in Martin Carnoy, The State and Political Theory (Princeton, New Jersey: Princeton University Press, 1984), pp. 130-140; this book provides a useful summary of the Marxist debate on state theory up to that time.

See Pouvoir politique et classes sociales, p. 221 (English ed.: p.204].

Rudolf Hilferding, Finance Capital: A Study of the Latest Phase of Capitalist Development (London: Routledge and Kegan Paul, 1981) [1910]; V. I. Lenin, Imperialism, the Highest Stage of Capitalism, in Selected Works, vol. I, part 2 (Moscow: Foreign Languages, 1952) [1917]; Karl Kautsky, ‘Ultra-imperialism’, New Left Review, 59 (Jan.-Feb., 1970) [1914].

‘On the Analysis of the Bourgeois Nation State within the World Market Context’, in Holloway and Picciotto, eds, State and Capital.

This is also one of the insights of the ‘world-systems’ approach: see Immanuel Wallerstein, The Modern World-System (New York: Academic Press, 1974), p. 348:
