Sample text

In fact, by many conventional measures, like spending and taxation, the state is bigger than ever, and certainly no less economically active. However, as Levy argues, if we focus on these continuities, we miss an enormous and highly consequential transformation: the abandonment of the traditional dirigiste strategy of directing capital while excluding labor, in favor of a strategy of aggressively promoting market liberalization while cushioning its social effects. Levy’s account shows how existing state capacities, far from being dismantled, were ‘redeployed’ in a major way during the post dirigiste period.

Different from layering and drift, here institutions are not so much amended or allowed to decay as they are redirected to new goals, functions, or purposes. Such redirection may come about as a result of new environmental challenges, to which policymakers respond by deploying existing institutional resources to new ends. Or it can come about through changes in power relations, such that actors who were not involved in the original design of an institution and whose participation in it may not have been reckoned with, take it over and turn it to new ends.

Lower-order institutions regulated from above in a multilevel institutional structure are not once and for all determined by the latter: like rule takers in general, those in control of national institutions inevitably have some leeway to adjust the supranational rules that apply to them, and they can also try to change such rules by putting pressure on rule makers or rule enforcers. Moreover, those governed by a national institution which is in turn governed by a supranational one often have wide-ranging strategic capacities as they can try to use political resources mobilized at one level to influence decisions at the other.
