Mediterranean capitalism revisited, one model, different trajectories, edited by Luigi Burroni, Emmanuele Pavolini, and Marino Regini

'Mediterranean Capitalism Revisited' brings together leading experts of the political economies of southern Europe - specifically Greece, Italy, Spain, and Portugal - to closely analyze and explain the primary socioeconomic and institutional features that define 'Mediterranean capitalism' within the wider European context. These economies share a number of features, most notably their difficulties to provide viable answers to the challenge of globalization. By examining and comparing such components as welfare, education and innovation policies, cultural dimensions, and labour market regulation, 'Mediterranean Capitalism Revisited' attends to both commonalities and divergences between the four countries, identifying the main reasons behind the poor performance of their economies and slow recovery from the Great Recession of 2007-2008
