Concludes the book with a survey of trends in the areas of collective bargaining and social policy from the 1950s through the 1990s, and examines them in light of earlier analysis, in the U.S. and Sweden. It finds, for example, that dramatic changes starting in the 1970s and 1980s in labor‐management relations (the decline in unionism and collective bargaining in the U.S. and the decentralization of bargaining in Sweden) were more influenced by international market processes in the U.S. than in Sweden. It also finds that analysis of the ongoing realignment of capitalist and labor interests helps explain the late 20th century welfare state trends.
