Abstract: The growing plethora of financial instruments and mounting volume of speculative financial transactions is considered separate from the real economy and governments. The changing and dynamic structure of financial markets has become the focal point of analysis. The dominant view of global finance within IPE is of a separate space where financial market activities are elite driven and of a highly technical nature. Typically, the growing prominence of financial markets, whether permitted or resisted by states, is seen as eroding the power of states to act. This ‘states vs. markets’ approach emphasizes the unavoidable nature of financial expansion. Finance is depicted as a process whereby nameless and faceless actors have been able to exert change on the existing conditions of life where states, firms, or households can merely adjust in accordance with the will of market actors. This theoretical framework evaluates finance as a personality imbued with distinct needs or interests, which is able to implement a rigid structure that determines action. The concept of financialisation captures key transformations occurring in financial markets and its influence on other economic sectors. Phenomena ranging from the globalization of financial markets, the shareholder revolution and the rise of incomes from financial investment all represent low-level changes in market activity and agent behaviour resulting from the liberalization of financial services. Financialisation isolates emphasizes the integrated nature of global financial markets and evaluates how social actors located at the privileged sites of financial accumulation accrue new political and economic power.

Abstract: We integrate into the study of the diffusion of policy innovations the notions of retrospective and prospective decision-making while focusing on the actions of state supreme courts and state legislatures in the area of education finance reform. Thus, we investigate how the changing information environment in states differently affects key institutional actors within states and subsequently also the likelihood of policy change. In addition, we build on the idea of legislatures and courts as prospective and retrospective decision-makers, by considering how the relevant decision context changes during the process of policy change. We test our hypotheses empirically, using event history analysis. Our results indicate that changes in the policy environment affect state courts and legislatures differently. Courts are influenced by retrospective factors, such as the degree of inequality in the state, while legislatures are influenced by prospective factors, such as the adoption of innovations by neighboring states. We argue, however, that the decision-making of courts cannot simply be characterized as retrospective, since the process by which litigation is brought to the court appears in part to be based on prospective considerations.
