Beschreibung

The former Economist correspondent argues that globalization is neither a label for Americanization nor an excuse for worldwide corporate domination, nor does it eliminate local cultures or make governments irrelevant. Mr. Legrain's balanced evaluation analyzes the major forces in the economic equation and makes a clear case that we are free to choose our future and to shape globalization for the benefit of all. "At last a good book on globalization...lucid and persuasive." Financial Times.

Pressestimmen

Legrain masterfully defines a middle ground between the contending forces for and against globalization.... In a rare and frank analysis...Legrain argues forcefully that the worst abuses usually associated with globalization are in fact caused by a continued reliance on self-serving policies by the strongest governments in the world....--Michael R. Kraig
