Professor Deyo's research has focused on economy and society in Asia, including labor systems, labor movements, employment structures, and social policy. His theoretical approach is rooted in critical institutionalism, as most prominently developed in the writings of Karl Polanyi, social structures of accumulation theory, and regulation theory. His most recent book dealt with the implications of economic reform for the employment and social livelihood of workers in Thailand, China, the Philippines, and South Korea. He is currently researching the impact of institutional and political transformations of American and world capitalism for American workers.
