Introduction to Part IV: Trade, investment and taxation

Chapter


Abstract


  • Part IV seeks to explore how the new constitutionalism of disciplinary

    neo-liberalism has reshaped the global regimes on investment, trade and

    taxation. It outlines how neo-liberal restructuring of these regimes -

    despite contradictions and crises - is intensifying in ways that are

    driven by, and that tend to reinforce, the direct and structural power of

    capital. The five main themes in Part IV are:

    1. The globalization of capital-exporting legal norms.

    2. The expansion of market-based investment disciplines and

    agreements.

    3. Challenges for public service provision and environmental regulation

    in light of these neo-liberal arrangements.

    4. Prospects for the post-global economic crisis political economy of

    taxation.

    5. Prospects for alternative forms of governance of the investment, trade

    and tax regimes.
