A major reason for this enhanced power of central banks is the growing importance of monetary policy in an era dominated by the pressure for more global financial integration. Because of the emphasis on these global market imperatives, Robertson terms this approach in Chapter 1 a capital-driven understanding of changing diplomatic practice. Global financial integration has resulted not only in a shift of policy instruments from fiscal to monetary policy, but also in a shift of power within the state towards agencies, such as central banks.

Introduction 29 Chapter 12 also argues in favour of foreign policy-making as a significant variable in the study of international relations in the developing world. East rejects the view that constraints imposed by the outside world – from international institutions, multinational corporations and NGOs – render foreign policy-making a secondary issue in developing nations. Like Friedman, East maintains that developing nations have significant scope for independent foreign policy-making. For East, a key development has been the diffusion of power and activity to regions in the post-Cold War period.
