Has Globalization Gone Far Enough? - (Institute for International Economics) by Dani Rodrik (Paperback)
About this item
Dani Rodrik brings a clear and reasoned voice to these questions. Has Globalization Gone Too Far? takes an unblinking and objective look at the benefits--and risks--of international economic integration, and criticizes mainstream economists for downplaying its dangers. It also makes a unique and persuasive case that the "winners" have as much at stake from the possible consequences of social instability as the "losers." As Rodrik points out, "... social disintegration is not a spectator sport--those on the sidelines also get splashed with mud from the field. Ultimately, the deepening of social fissures can harm all."
President Clinton read the book and it provided the conceptual basis for the trade/IMF portions of his State of the Union message in January 1998.
