Making Globalization Work
By

Rating
Four years after he outlined the challenges our increasingly interdependent world was facing in Globalization and Its Discontents, Joseph E. Stiglitz offered his agenda for reform. Now in paperback, Making Globalization Work offers inventive solutions to a host of problems, including the indebtedness of developing countries, international fiscal instability, and worldwide pollution. Stiglitz also argues for the reform of global financial institutions, trade agreements, and intellectual property laws, to make them better able to respond to the growing disparity between the richest and poorest countries. Now more than ever before, globalization has gathered the peoples of the world into one community, bringing with it a need to think and act globally. This trenchant, intellectually powerful book is an invaluable step in that process.

Reviews

Who better than a former senior vice president of the World Bank to give us an overview of how globalization will work. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

"A brave book... Stiglitz does an excellent job of describing dense topics... in language that's understandable and accessible." -- Russ Juskalian - USA Today "A searing critique of the conventional wisdom... Stiglitz's analysis is eye-opening... because it is consistent and comprehensive, and he writes with rare clarity and passion for a distinguished economist." -- Jeffrey E. Garten - Newsweek "A well-written and informative primer on the major global economic problems. [Stiglitz] helps his readers understand exactly what is at stake." -- Jeffry Frieden - New York Times Book Review "An excellent book... a lodestar for those who want to achieve a different and better world." -- Guardian "You don't have to agree with Stiglitz on every point to benefit from his creative thinking." -- Peter Coy - BusinessWeek
