Abstract and Keywords
This chapter examines the impact of research on different forms of capitalism on the field of organization studies. It draws initially on Polanyi’s concept of the ‘double movement’ to identify the relationship between capitalism as a general economic system and capitalisms as institutionally embedded in particular societies. This generates a focus on particular forms of capitalism with distinctive institutional features. The chapter discusses French regulation theory and the varieties of capitalism approach as broad programmes of research which have developed to explore these interactions. It then proceeds to show how these themes have been developed in organization studies, and then how the specific contribution of organization studies has fed back into the wider debate of forms of capitalism.
