Moving past summary monetary types and superficial descriptions of the marketplace, Beyond the Developmental State analyses the industrial, political and ideological pursuits which underpin present socio-economic processes.

Through this process, the members express the shut interrelation among states and markets in either nationwide and foreign contexts.
