Synopses & Reviews
Subscribe to "Brookings Trade Forum" How is globalization linked to global poverty and to global inequality? Such questions are at the center of a heated and, at times, acrimonious debate, despite the large and growing literatures in economics and other disciplines. This volume of the "Brookings Trade Forum" aims to summarize what is known from the existing body of scholarly research and identify the questions on which there is less conclusive evidence and consensus.
