Political economy is about the sources of political power and its uses for economic ends. Aspower distribution varies around the globe, so does economic development and its approach toit. As Benjamin Cohen puts it, “the ﬁeld of International Political Economy (IPE) teaches ushow to think about the connections between economics and politics beyond the conﬁnes of asingle state” (Cohen 2008: 1). However, not all the states look alike. When Cohen proposed aglobal conversation within the ﬁeld of IPE he centered on American and British IPE, and inEnglish spoken authors and approaches he only explored the construction of IPE in the Anglo- Saxon world. In the same line, in the last decades several authors started to reﬂect about aca-demic ﬁelds like International Relations (IR) and IPE, in close connection with the growingdevelopment that the ﬁeld has had around the globe.
