Globalization and Its Discontents

Author:

Availability: In Stock

A compelling book that confronts us with difficult realities of the world and offers real though tough solutions! Globalization today is not working... for many of the worlds poor... for much of the environment... for the stability of the global economy. From a leader of the anti-globalization movement, a statement like this would not be remarkable. But coming from Joseph Stiglitzformer Chief Economist at the World Bankit is startling and challenging. Stiglitzs extraordinary authority and experience make this a compelling book. He argues that the West has seriously mismanaged the process of privatization, liberalization and stabilization, and that by following its advice many Third World countries and former Communist states are actually worse off now than they were before. But he does not take a simplistic pro- or anti-globalization stance. Instead he confronts us with the often difficult realities of the world. Stiglitz also offers real, though tough, solutions. In so doing he addresses some of the most pressing concerns of the age.
