schema:reviewBody""To its critics, globalization is a terrible development that makes almost everybody worse off and threatens the survival of the planet. They blame it for everything from mass poverty in Africa and Latin America to the falling living standards for workers in Europe and North America. In contrast, globalization's advocates argue that it is the greatest force for good in human history, a powerful institution for improving the quality of life around the world. The underlying problem with both of these positions, says Bruce Greenwald and Judd Kahn, is that they are based on certain accepted truths that are either highly questionable or largely false. In Globalization, they cut through the myths surrounding globalization and look more closely at its real impact, presenting a more accurate picture of the present status of globalization and its future consequences." "The authors show that globalization is not a recent development but has a long and cyclical history. They explain how, by concentrating so intently on globalization, we ignore the role of other important trends and simply attribute every change to globalization. Perhaps most importantly, they reveal how the globalization debate largely ignores information that is essential to understanding what is really going on. While many commentators rely on anecdotes or studies that are fundamentally flawed, Greenwald and Kahn uncover the real facts about globalization and answer the most important questions it raises." "Looking to the future, Greenwald and Kahn Identify trends that point strongly to an economy in which services play a larger role and in which local decisions are critical. They suggest that international monetary reform is one area where global cooperation will be required."--BOOK JACKET."
