Summary
"The debate on globalization has reached a level of passionate intensity that inhibits rational discussion. In this book, one of the world's foremost economic commentators explains how globalization works and why it makes sense. Martin Wolf confronts the charges against globalization, delivers a devastating critique of each and outlines a more hopeful future."--BOOK JACKET
Summary
Wolf (associate editor and chief economics commentator at the Financial Times of London) provides a defense of capitalist globalization or "a liberal international economic order" to a general audience. He first offers an argument for a liberal market economy, utilizing fairly standard references to the "mutually reinforcing and interdependent relationship between the market and the democratic state," and sketches a positive portrait of the history of globalization. While conceding the accuracy of some (very few) criticisms of market globalization, he devotes much of the work to rebutting critics arguments about globalization being a cause of global impoverishment, corporate domination, threats to the sovereignty of the democratic state, and the race to the bottom in environmental and social regulation.
