1. Business Interests and Networks Many of the contributions in this volume suggest an understanding of coordination and complementarities that builds on a set of prerequisites associated Beyond Varieties of Capitalism 17 with networks of actors with broadly similar interests. Hall and Soskice (2001b) repeatedly refer to different modes of coordination in these terms, but give less attention to the ways in which such networks emerge. However, at least since Olson (1965) we have been aware that a confluence of interests is an insufficient condition for collective action to ensue.

Macroeconomic policy in LMEs, he argues, is less restrictive than in CMEs because of two critical factors which differ. One is a strong, single-party government with a clear majority and fiscal policies that force them to internalize the costs of expansion; the other is the absence of strong trade unions. In such a configuration, central banks need not fear adopting a highly responsive and often less conservative monetary policy, since there are no actors in the LME political economy who would exploit a monetary expansion.

Exogenous forces also pose serious challenges for MMEs such as France, Italy, or Spain.
