9780198714071: States, Debt, and Power: 'Saints' and 'Sinners' in European History and Integration

States, Debt, and Power argues for the importance of situating our contextually influenced thinking about European states and debt within a commitment to historically informed and critical analysis. It teases out certain broad historical patterns. The book also examines the inescapably difficult and contentious judgements about 'bad' and 'good' debt; about what constitutes sustainable debt; and about distributive justice at times of sovereign debt crisis. These judgements offer insight into the nature of power and the contingent nature of sovereign creditworthiness. Three themes weave through the book: the significance of creditor-debtor state relations in defining asymmetry of power; the context-specific and constructed character of debt, above all in relation to war; and the limitations of formal economic reasoning in the face of radical uncertainty. Part I examines case studies from Ancient Greece to the modern Euro Area and brings together a wealth of historical data that cast fresh light on how sovereign debt problems are debated and addressed. Part II looks at the conditioning and constraining framework of law, culture, and ideology and their relationship to the use of policy instruments. Part III shows how the problems of matching the assumption of liability with the exercise of control are rooted in external trade and financial imbalances and external debt; in financial markets and vulnerability to banking crisis; in the character of the 'private governance of public debt'; in who has power over indicators of sustainability; in domestic institutional and political arrangements; and in sub-national fiscal governance. Part IV looks at how the problems of mismatch between liability and control take on an acute form within the historical context of European monetary union, above all in Euro Area debt crises.

Review:


"This book is enormous in every sense- spanning theology, European fiscal history, government debt statistics, Anglo-Irish literature and the current plight of the Eurozone. Dyson is eminently qualified to write such a work, having been publishing on European political economy since the early 1980s and the Eurozone since the mid-1990s; no serious work on the political economy of the Eurozone can avoid repeated citations to his work. The sheer size of the book makes it a useful read. Few people will fail to learn, whether about the reputation of Ottoman budgeting or the correct reading of net external debt positions today." -Publius


"States, Debt and Power stands out in a growingly crowded field for (at least) two related reasons. Firstly, the author aims not only at interdisciplinary analysis but also at a very long durée reconstruction of the causes (and potential consequences) of the present crises. Secondly, the monograph combines a subtle and contextual analysis of the present European crises with a constructive approach to history, which allows the author to engage into prognosis and (cautiously and judiciously) in drawing the framework within which constructive policy-making should proceed. EL the book rewards its reader with a thorough, contextual and genuinely deep knowledge of its subject matter." -Political Studies
