Speaker information

Steven Vogel, Professor of Political Science, niversity of California, Berkeley, Steven K. Vogel is the Il Han New Professor of Asian Studies and a Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Berkeley. He specializes in the political economy of the advanced industrialized nations, especially Japan. He is the author of Japan Remodeled: How Government and Industry Are Reforming Japanese Capitalism and Freer Markets, More Rules: Regulatory Reform in Advanced Industrial Countries.

Modern-day markets do not arise spontaneously or evolve naturally. Rather they are crafted by individuals, firms, and most of all, by governments. Thus “marketcraft” represents a core function of government comparable to statecraft. This talk builds upon the recognition that all markets are crafted, and then explores the implications of this simple observation for analysis and policy. The talk will conclude with policy lessons for both progressives and market liberals.
