Chapter 11 reflects on a reduction since the post-war period in the power of governments to control factors affecting 'domestic stability'. Two changes effected by corporations have reduced states’ ability to nurture domestic stability through the means of such “merely national social bargains” as the Embedded Liberalism Compromise: the evolution of global supply chains and the automation revolution. Both changes spring directly from the gradual expansion of economic liberalism, particularly in relation to investment and capital, and involve a dramatic alteration to both traditional methods of production and the terms and availability of employment. The significance of the changes is that they have been commercially driven, cost-reducing alterations imposed by non-state actors (corporations), developments over which domestic governments have little regulatory reach. Yet their impacts may be seen in populist-led political developments – even instability – in the United States and in Europe and Britain, the very nations states which brokered the Compromise seventy years ago. The changes challenge the role of governments in safeguarding domestic stability, as many of its elements will be managed by corporations applying commercial considerations. It concludes that these aspects of domestic stability are now largely in the hands of non-state actors, with domestic governments no longer in a controlling position.
