"MAKING GLOBALIZATION WORK is an optimistic book...Stiglitz has given us a well-written and informative primer on the major global economic problems. He helps his readers understand exactly what is at stake."
From the Publisher
Annotation As he did in his previous GLOBALIZATION AND ITS DISCONTENTS, Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz is concerned with using the globalized economic system to benefit both people and nations. He proposes policies that would address debt (and the forgiveness of debt), rapacious profit-taking and corruption, protectionism, environmental concerns, and the massive social injustices that derive from the inequalities of money and power. He draws examples from the successes and failures of Japan, China, the Soviet Union, the post-Soviet states, and the United States. Stiglitz is a believer in the notion that sound economic policy can be good for business and people.
Editors Note A leading critic of globalization explains how to restructure an unstable global financial system, how nations can grow economically without damaging the environment, and how to devise a framework for free and fair global trade.
