Globalization reappraised : a false oracle or a talisman

Dhirendra K. Vajpeyi (Author), Roopinder Oberoi (Author)
Globalization Reappraised: False Oracle or Talisman analyzes the emergence of the Washington Consensus-inspired globalization model in the post-Cold War era. It presents a comprehensive scholarly survey of the literature, impact of the model on technology, ethno/religious revivalism, environment, human rights, rule of law, income inequality, and the rise of unprincipled populist political demagogues in Asia, Africa, Europe, and the United States. This book also discusses the devastating impact of the 2008 global financial crisis due to an unbridled, unregulated free market system. These developments have raised serious doubts about the once considered inevitable, invincible globalization model. Serious soul searching to fix or even discard some of its negatives has become a significant part of policy discussions from Delhi to Devos. The concluding chapter of this book analyzes several alternative models by raising the question about the direction and nature of the model itself. Book jacket
