Product Overview

The discourse on globalization has become polarized. Proponents consider globalization as the silver bullet for targeting growth in the world economy and for poor countries specifically, while opponents see it as the poisoned arrow of exploitation and impoverishment of the Third World. Splendidly edited, The Asymmetries of Globalization deals with the what and how but primarily with why globalization has most often negative outcomes for developing countries. It breaks new ground in approaching globalization not only as trade commodities, but also as trade in positional goods (decommodified trade.)The two novel and munificent forms of post-Ricardian decommodified trade, trade in services and trade in hard currency in the form of currency substitution, are sculpted in the introductory chapter as the foundation of the systematic asymmetries of globalization. The analytical approach of introducing positional goods in the form of decommodified trade, in the discource on globalization, is original. It is also timely in a situation where the tail of trade in services has grown enough to wag the traditional trade-in-commodities dog of globalization. The balance of the chapters in this volume constitute a tapestry of case studies that elaborate and empirically investigate the causes of systematic asymmetries of globalization. The books appeal transcends economics to make it also highly useful to students across the disciplines of sociology and political science, especially in the fields of international political economy and the politics of international trade. It will certainly enlighten all those working in the general areas of globalization, poverty and economic development. *Author: Yotopoulos, Pan A./ Romano, Donato *Series Title: Routledge Studies in Development Economics *Binding Type: Hardcover *Number of Pages: 208 *Publication Date: 2007/02/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.26 x 6.49 x 0.70 inches
