Globalization and Its Discontents
From Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz, "Globalization and its Discontents" is the bestselling expose of the all-powerful organizations that control our lives. Our world is changing. Globalization is not working.
It is hurting those it was meant to help. And now, the tide is turning...As chief economist at the world bank, Nobel Prize-winner Joseph Stiglitz had a unique insider's view into the management of globalization. Now he speaks out against it: how the IMF and WTO preach fair trade yet impose crippling economic policies on deveopling nations; how free market 'shock therapy' made millions in East Asia and Russia worse off than they were before; and how the West has driven the global agenda to further its own financial interests.
