9780199657285: The Political Economy of the Service Transition

Over the past four decades the wealthiest OECD economies-in Europe, North America, and Australasia- have faced massive structural change. Industrial sectors, which were once considered the economic backbone of these societies, have shrunk inexorably in terms of size and economic significance, while service sectors have taken over as the primary engines of output and employment expansion. The impact on labor markets has been profound: in many OECD countries more than three-quarters of employment is now in services, while industrial sectors, on average, account for less than one-fifth.

This sectoral shift in the locus of economic activity has potentially radical implications for politics and society. However, these implications are only beginning to be understood. This path-breaking book is a systematic attempt to understand the distinct political economy of service societies. It examines how different types of socio-economic regimes manage the service transition, with a central focus on job creation and destruction and the changing characteristics of labor markets, and shows that the economic, distributional, and political outcomes with which it is associated vary across countries depending on their political-institutional structures.

About the Author :


Dr. Anne Wren received her Ph.D. in Political Economy and Government from Harvard University in 2000 and was an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Stanford University between 2000 and 2007. In 2006 she was awarded a Marie Curie Excellence Team grant by the European Commission to establish a research team working on the political economy of the service transition at the Institute for International Integration Studies (IIIS), Trinity College Dublin. She returned to Dublin to direct this research program and is currently a Research Associate of IIIS.

Review :


"The Political Economy of the Service Transition provides an essential guide to understanding the transformational impact of the shift to services across the rich democracies. The volume features insightful contributions from an all-star cast of authors, framed by a superb synthetic introduction by Anne Wren."--Kathleen Thelen, Ford Professor of Political Science, MIT


"The Political Economy of the Service Transition is an outstanding collection of essays explaining the impact of one key dimension in the changes affecting industrial societies. Anne Wren has gathered a stellar group of scholars to address how the development of the service sector transforms the politics and economics of advanced democratic societies. The analytically and empirically rich essays by leading contributors draw on their research to related the development of the service sector to the varieties of capitalism framework and to the political consequences of service based economic transformation for politics. The result is a major contribution and indispensable reading for students of comparative politics, political economy and the sociology of industrial society."--Desmond King, Andrew W. Mellon Professor of American Government, University of Oxford


"This path-breaking volume brings together a remarkable group of distinguished and talented scholars. Unpacking the concept of 'deindustrialization,' it explores the distributive and political implications as well as the institutional determinants of different trajectories of service-sector expansion in advanced capitalist economies. The literature on varieties of capitalism can no longer be accused of being "manufacturing-centered!"--Jonas Pontusson, Professor of Comparative Politics, University of Geneva


"Many classic analyses in political economy are anachronistically focused on manufacturing and tend to assume that services are all sheltered, low-wage and low-productivity. Anne Wren, in this volume's introduction, demonstrates that technological change has
upended old assumptions about services."

-- Political Studies Review
