Assistant Professor, Dartmouth College
Professor Link specializes in economic history, business history, and the intellectual history of capitalism. He is currently finishing a book on the global spread of Fordism in the interwar years, which is under contract with Princeton University Press. The book shows that, seen from a broad transnational vantage point, Fordism is a production regime not specific to capitalism. Rather, techniques and ideologies of mass production furnished key components of illiberal modernization drives – that is, projects of state-led growth, which explicitly fashioned themselves as alternatives to Western capitalism.
