Thomas Prosser

Comment on Paola Palminiello/3



In this comment Prosser suggests literature that may help Palminiello strengthen her article's argument; this literature includes the contributions of authorities such as Streeck, Thelen and Mahoney to institutional theory. Given the author's commendable interest in transnational aspects of political economy, Prosser also suggests that the ways in which institutional change is achieved via transnational influences might represent a promising line of investigation. This reflection also inspires the recommendation that Palminiello's hypotheses are more effectively operationalized and tested; specifically, the author suggests that recent processes of EU economic reform represent a suitable case study.
