Small States in the Rearview Mirror: Legitimacy in the Management of Economy and Society

Schwartz, H. (2010). Small States in the Rearview Mirror: Legitimacy in the Management of Economy and Society. European Political Science, 9(3), pp. 365-374. doi: 10.1057/eps.2010.26

Abstract

Small States in World Markets is about political efficacy and legitimation rather than scoring who is ahead in the economic sweepstakes. Its case for democratic corporatism rests on norms, particularly stability, rather than on narrow measures of economic efficiency. But stability and the efficacious management of the economy and social problems requires a degree of technocracy that undermines the legitimacy of the management process itself by helping to produce populist revolts.
