It is argued that from the perspective of regulation theory, such stabilization is a necessary condition for these institutional forms to contribute to effectively regulating the global economy. Whither CSR? The contemporary global crises referred to at the beginning of this chapter suggest a somewhat uncertain picture of the future of CSR. The weakening of finance capital and neoliberal orthodoxy; an opening for the state to reassert its role as a developmental and regulatory agent; and the legitimacy bestowed upon the global justice movement that may now claim ‘I told you so’, suggest the possibility of a shift in the configuration of social forces that may favour processes of institutional reform conducive to inclusive development.

It has therefore often played a background role in development in ‘enabling’ government not to focus on welfare. However, none of these minor forms of socioeconomic governance were as important to the developmental state itself as the hierarchy of the large corporation. Even in the state-owned, Soviet form, there was usually a distinction between political and administrative actions of the state, on the one hand, and managerial actions of the corporation, on the other.
