State Capacity and Economic Intervention in the Early New Deal
Theda Skocpol and Kenneth Finegold look at the attempts of the early New Deal (1933-35) to regulate prices and production and compare the historically developed administrative and planning capacities of different parts of the U.S. federal government. Their focus on state capacities contrasts with the explanatory emphases on social groups or economic conditions that are common to arguments based on pluralist or Marxian theoretical premises.
