This paper discusses and compares Steven K. Vogel's article, "The Crisis of German and Japanese Capitalism" and Gary Teeple's article, "The Global Economy and the Decline of Social Reform." It describes the different style and focus of each article, as well as their similarities, especially in their main focus on modern day economic globalization and the current state of capitalism.
From the Paper:"The thousands of Canadians who recently had to line up to get passports to cross the world's longest "friendly border" and enter the territory of our nearest neighbour most likely did not feel as if they were at the end of the era of the nation-state. Similarly, Canadian/Syrian national Maher Arar, who was allegedly deported to Syria via Jordan by the US government in 2002, there to be detained and tortured for a year, most likely did not feel as if he was living in the era of the end of the nation-state (Amnesty International, 2003). A year of being tortured in the name of national rivalries and animosities between two different nation states would cause most people to believe quite strongly that the nation state was alive and well. On the other hand, Teeple's analysis goes to the macro economic forces that operate below the surface, and it might be possible to simultaneously believe in the end of the nation-state in relation to economics, while allowing that deeply held animosities between nation states could continue to cause incidents such as Arar's ordeal, as well as calamities such as 9/11."
