The best critical analysis of the constructing of current economic governance institutions and agendas. Throughout this analysis Tabb shows us how partial a map of this process has been produced by the main scholarly traditions on the subject. This juxtaposition illuminates the contingent character of the current system and the work that can be done to develop alternative objectives.
