The ascendance of neoliberalism with consequent deregulation and privatization challenged the underlying rationale of state intervention. Greater internationalization, it was expected, would lead to a shift of power towards capital and gradual loss of power to labour. While this trend did not actually eventuate in countries like Germany and Japan, the Anglo-American countries did move substantially in that direction placing greater importance on shareholder value (Fligstein, 2001).

While recognizing the value of Weber's contribution in identifying the type of public institutional structure needed to counter private entrepreneurial groups, Evans (1995) is critical of his lack of exploration into its role in promoting private enterprise. The social systems of production approach to studies of comparative capitalism (Hollingsworth and Boyer, 1997) owes its influence to the work of Karl Polanyi, author of The Great Transformation (1944). Polanyi viewed the institutional framework of industrial capitalism as being based on self-regulating markets and the gold standard, both of which were to be supported by a liberal state.
