About the Author
Darius Ornston is Assistant Professor of International Affairs at the University of Georgia.
"When Small States Make Big Leaps is a first-rate book that adds substantially to debates on European political economy and corporatism. Darius Ornston argues that some small European states have invented a new 'creative' corporatism that turns economic pressure into targeted political pressures that both motivate and enable new kinds of tripartite deals to deliver supply-side benefits. Throughout, Ornston distinguishes among industrial policy, labor market policy, and developments in capital markets. I found this very enlightening and provocative."--Wade Jacoby, Brigham Young University, author of Imitation and Politics: Redesigning Modern Germany
"At a moment when the West is confused on what to do next, Darius Ornston provides us with a remarkably detailed comparative account of the search for solutions to a previous crisis. He demonstrates how the coordinated market economies of Denmark and Finland, by making creative use of corporatism, could transform institutions and move from low- to high-tech societies during the 1990s. These lessons are highly significant for locating theoretically the sources of institutional and social innovation and the capability for searching for new phases of prosperity."--Peer Hull Kristensen, Copenhagen Business School
