The notion of corporatism as an economic system distinct from both classical capitalism and socialism has experienced a revival of intellectual interest since the mid-1970s. Though the term was first used in the 19th century, its current definition is elusive. This book defines corporatism in an explicit way and explores the explanatory power of the definition. Social corporatism is defined as an economic system in which the labour market is organized by centralized wage bargaining and is non-exclusive and egalitarian. The definition adopted permits the corporatist label to be extended to countries as diverse as Austria and Australia, and the extent to which these experiments have succeeded is also reviewed. The study suggests that developing countries could do well to emulate the example of the successful corporatist countries in building the necessary institutions at an early stage of their development. Indeed, as the pivotal centrally planned command economies of Eastern Europe move over to market solutions they will have the opportunity to profit from the lessons of the corporatist experience by incorporating the key elements in rebuilding structures.
