Globalized State Capitalism

Grants to Support Faculty Fellows' Research
Grant Year

This book project explores the emergence of ‘globalized state capitalism,’ a new mode of state intervention whereby governments provide incentives for domestic firms to expand their economic activities beyond the boundaries of the nation-state. I argue that states can use this strategy to enhance the international competitiveness of domestic firms. This policy allows states to sidestep unfavorable international regulations on domestic economic intervention and enables firms to benefit from producing and innovating across the globe. Contra existing literature, I show that rather than retreat, state intervention has globalized. I seek Kellogg support to carry out a survey experiment and hire a research assistant fluent in Mandarin. The data will be used to complete my book manuscript and produce two stand-alone articles.
