Publisher Comments:

The authors of this book challenge prevailing ideas about free markets and globalization. They question whether globalization is a technological reality that cannot be stopped and ask if the US economy really outperformed its competitors in the 1990s. They show how in each key area--trade and industrial policy, privatization, intellectual property rights, investment and financial policies, exchange rate and currency policy, labour and social welfare --there are alternatives to neoliberal policies that the historical experience of particular countries prove really works.

Synopsis:

After half a century of disappointed hopes, where do developing countries go from here? In this volume, two economists refute some of the main myths of free market globalization in trenchant fashion. introducing the alternative economic policies that can be and have been successfully pursued.
