This is a book on the problems of constructing institutions to handle the processes of economic integration in Northern America and Western Europe. The term ‘deficient institutionality’ as the sub-title signals that our papers share a critical attitude to the results of institutional construction; the schemes for economic integration build institutions that influence market behaviour, but generally fail to adequately address the socio-political issues.
