AS: I’ve been planning which papers I’m going to hear at the forthcoming Business History Conference meeting in Frankfurt. It so happens that I’ve been teaching about “Varieties of Capitalism” this week. It is common to distinguish Liberal Market Economies, such as the UK and the US, from Coordinated Market Economies such as Germany and Japan. I was, therefore, especially intrigued, by the second paper in the following panel.
