Globalisation: Making Sense of an Integrating World (Economist)
Synopses & Reviews
Expert analysis of the way globalization is changing the world we live in and will continue to do so. Globalization is one of the most powerful forces at work today, fundamentally affecting the way businesses are run and the way we lead our lives, and causing thousands to take to the streets at world summits to protest against its effects. This book is a collection of surveys and articles on globalization that have appeared in The Economist. They cover a wide range of issues: migration; trade; culture; the influence of multinationals; the role of organizations such as IMF, the World Bank, and the WTO; the spread of equity culture; taxation; inequality; the environment; and how technology is raising standards in the world's poorest countries. Together, through careful analysis of the facts, the articles discuss the case for globalization. For anyone who wants an understanding of the conceptual and practical issues involved in this contentious subject, there is no broader or more illuminating guide.
Reasons, Effects and Challenges. Expert analysis of the way globalisation is changing the world we live in and will continue to do so.
