Phillip Bobbit and Richard Robison's Account of a Market State

The main accounts of the can be found in Phillip Bobbit\’s Book – The Shield of Achilles. War, Peace and the Course of History, particularly pages 213-242, and Richard Robison\’s – The Neo-liberal Revolution: forging the market state, a collection of papers with his account supported by other authors. There are many other articles especially in the case of Phillip Bobbit with more information of his theory. It would be useful if theories from Maynard Keynes in – A General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money (pgs 372-384 particularly), Adam Smith – An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, and Karl Marx could be used in the analysis at times while contrasting Robison\’s and Bobbit\’s theories. It would also be very helpful if you could use analysis from ‘The Crisis of Capitalist Democracy’, Telos No. 152 (Fall 2010): 44–67. by Pabst, Adrian. Key differences could be – Differences of what a market state entails – Difference in outlook, with Bobbit possessing a relatively Realist outlook in relation to Robison\’s Neo-liberal view -Differences in the causes of the emergence of a market state with Bobbit attributing the end of \”epochal\” war with technological developments of long war leading to the fall in legitimacy of nation-state (as state cannot protect its citizens due to nuclear weapons and other legitimating factors) and the rise of a new market-state with new legitimating factors, while Robison attributes the rise of the market state to the fall in practicality of the welfare state (Keynes) and the rise of capitalist democracy which coincides with the Thatcher and Reagan era? Both attribute different reasons but see time frame as the late 1970s, early 1980s to be the rise of the market state -Different outlooks of the effects of globalisation? There are many others however these are the only ones i could think of
