The Baltics) have also rapidly moved towards this model. Nonetheless, continual debates take place over the appropriate boundary between the state and the economy. In the principal European LME, the UK, it is only since the 1990s, and the Thatcherite solution to the decades-long contestation of the state–market divide, that liberal market synergies have operated freely (Rhodes 2000). The fourth and final type of coordination is conventionally associated with the north-west European economies (CMEs in VoC), of which Germany is the prime example.

G. Amable 2003; Boyer 2005b) which multiply the number of capitalisms in line with a large number of variables or characteristics. While the former conflates a distinctive mode of coordination with a different model of capitalism, the latter accommodates greater empirical complexity, but excessively dilutes the analytical strength of the VoC approach. The typology above also allows us to think about the institutional substructures of these systems, especially the capacity for coalition building and collective goods provision, given contrasting organizational characteristics of capital and labour, different modes of state involvement, distinctive forms of coordination, and the extent and importance of positive complementarities.

Thus, while in MMEs the state is much more directly involved in leading responses to exogenous forces for change than in CMEs (cf. Levy 2005), its actions are conditioned by its ability to coordinate decisions with interests such as business and labour. When those other actors have been fragmented and weakened, governments have been able to introduce liberal market reforms. But responses requiring coordination have been much more difficult. In contrast, when other interests have been stronger, the opposite pattern has been seen.
