Sur le thème : Hybrid state, hybrid capitalism, and American anti-statism
Typically portrayed as a ‘weak’ state with minimal transformative interest or capacity, the United States has been poorly understood in recent debates on comparative capitalism. In order to understand the state-market relationship in the U.S. political economy, we must start with the cluster of federal agencies that serve national security missions, originating in Cold War geopolitics. To understand how this cluster today functions as a strategic engine of innovation, entrepreneurship, and collaborative government-industry projects and why its extensive links with the commercial sector are rarely visible, let alone examined, I introduce the concept of hybridisation and explore its institutional complementarity with a national ‘antistatist’ value-set.
