“One in all this is a very useful book that allows us to develop many insights into aspects on the functioning of the global economy. … Moore’s book is a higher useful contribution to studies within IPE. … the real achievements of this book is that it opens up a large number of enquiries – both theoretical and empirical – that have either been understated or ignored when looking at wider questions on issues such as globalisation and the global political economy.” (Owen Worth, Global Discourse, Vol. 2 (2), 2011)
