Abstract: While the literature on the varieties of capitalism has tended to develop separately from that on the varieties of gender regime, some of the most important issues occur at their intersection. There has been much theoretical and empirical interest in the extent to which gender can be distinguished from class in the analysis of varieties of modernity. The paper proposes a distinction between neoliberal and social democratic forms of both capitalism and of gender regimes. It investigates the extent to which there is an overlap between these varieties of gender regimes and varieties of capitalism in the provision of welfare and regulation of the labour market, using data on the 30 OECD countries. The paper distinguishes between gender and class aspects of measures and indicators of welfare provision and regulation of the labour market, which have previously been conflated. It uses recently available OECD data on the different levels of expenditure on childcare as a new way of indicating gendered aspects of welfare states. It creates a new indicator of labour market regulation that enables the gender equality aspect to be distinguished. While there is some overlap between varieties of capitalism and gender regime this is found to be far from complete. The varying balance of gender and class forces in different locations is investigated. The paper concludes with reflections on the implications of these findings for theories of the varieties of capitalism and of gender regimes.

"Varieties of capitalism and varieties of macroeconomic policy: are some economies more pro-cyclical than others?" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the SASE Annual Conference, Sciences Po, Paris, France, Jul 16, 2009 <Not Available>. 2019-08-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p370865_index.html>

Abstract: The Variety of capitalism literature (e.g. Soskice, 2007) argues that Coordinated Market Economies (CMEs) should be expected to have less accommodating macroeconomic policies than Liberal Market Economies (LMEs). Using Time Series Cross Section data on 16 OECD countries between 1980 and 2002, we test the hypothesis that countries with a more developed social protection system have different types of discretionary fiscal policy from more liberal economies. One expects that the former economies can rely only on automatic stabilizers, such as unemployment compensation schemes, for instance, to sustain economic activity when in economic slowdowns. By contrast, in LMEs, these automatic stabilising effects should either be nonexistent or very weak. LMEs could only rely on discretionary fiscal policies to sustain the level of economic activity, which implies that countercyclical policies should be used.
Taking the discretionary part of budget policy as a dependent variable, we find that the degree of procyclicity of budget policy is indeed conditional on the level of generosity of the welfare state. However, contrary to expectations, liberal economies' buget policies do not seem to be systematically more countercyclical than other developed economies' policies. In fact, countries with less generous social protection systems are more procyclical than others in business cycle upturns. There is no clear pattern that differentiate economies in economic slowdowns and discretionary fiscal policies turn out to be acyclical.
These results are robust to changes in specifications (political business cycle, level of public debt, trade openness, centre of gravity of the government...) and estimators.

Abstract: This paper investigates transitions from temporary to permanent jobs in Central Eastern Europe. The study combines the individual approach of the ‘stepping stone versus trap’ theory and the institutional point of view represented by the Varieties of Capitalism approach to the labour markets. The research answers which labour market institutions support the transition to permanent employment and what role the regime typologies play. The analysis covers eight post-communist countries that accessed to the EU in 2004 and investigates the labor market transitions between years 2005 and 2010. EU-SILC dataset and multinomial logistic regression is used to perform the analysis. In addition to the individual labour market institutions effect, the findings show that the ‘Varieties of Capitalism’ typology as established by earlier research did not prove helpful in understanding the country differences. Rather contrary, the differences within supposedly homogeneous groups of countries are larger than between the supposed ideal types of Slovenia (CME) and Estonia (LME).

Abstract: There is a long-standing literature on how economic institutions shape countries' responses to shocks and crises in OECD countries (see e.g. Gourevitch 1978, Hall 2007). However, it is less clear under what circumstances institutions are sufficiently 'strong' (Levitsky and Murillo 2009) in developing and transitional countries to shape behaviour in such a way. This paper examines two transition countries - Estonia and Slovenia - which are widely acknowledged to represent different kinds of capitalist systems, notably with respect to labour markets and industrial relations (Feldmann 2006, Buchen 2006, Bohle and Greskovits 2007). Both countries were adversely affected by the economic crisis starting in 2007, yet this paper shows that they have adopted very different responses to it. Estonia, a liberal market economy, adopted decentralised and market-based adjustment at the micro-level and maintained a strong commitment to euro adoption despite a deep recession (Feldmann 2010). By contrast, Slovenia, commonly viewed as a corporatist and coordinated market economy, continued to seek negotiated solutions, incl. a comprehensive agreement between the government and the social partners to address the economic crisis in December 2008 (Skledar 2009). Therefore this paper argues that the economic crisis has accentuated many of the core differences between Estonia and Slovenia. The comparative case study seeks to analyse the political processes by which these adjustment patterns were brought about. The paper also reflects on the general implications of these cases for the study of institutions, adjustment processes and industrial relations in Central and Eastern Europe.

Abstract: By enlarging total consumer base, organic products have a spillover effect on their conventional competitors. Therefore, instead of substituting conventional varieties with organic ones, retailers actually increase their conventional assortments during the organic trend. However, the simultaneous increase in variety is constrained by shelf space and store brands.
