Abstract and Keywords

Robert Boyer develops and extends the régulationist project to more fully take account of the consequences of the interlinkage of work and employment relations on the one hand, and capitalist growth regimes on the other. He argues that spillover between the two is most likely to be the abiding source of economic crises. Boyer suggests that the heterogeneity of work regimes that is an abiding feature of the present condition not only makes it difficult for a new stable model to replace the post-Fordist one to emerge, but also reflects the ongoing search for a new viable growth regime. The complex variety of employment forms, in turn, mirrors the shifting of risk by many employers on to employees, changes in skills and national institutional realities.

Keywords: regulation theory, Fordism, economic crises, systemic change, work and employment relations
