About this product
- DescriptionIn the post-Cold War era, ecomic globalization has loomed, at least for some, as the world system's next crisis carrier, creating winners and losers and trampling on the distinctiveness of local cultures. Yet the liberal assumption is that if the market does its job, the poor will catch up to the rich via trade-driven growth and the ecomies of developed and less developed countries will gradually converge. Investigating the processes of ecomic globalization, this book explores whether it is truly a global process. It examines how globalization is experienced around the world, comparing its intensity and impact in both the global North and South. Using a world systems approach and developing a theoretical analysis that builds on the leadership long-cycle approach to global political ecomy, this book seeks to dispel some of the myths widely propagated regarding ecomic development. Through a focus on the issues of techlogical diffusion, debt, conflict, and democratisation, the authors demonstrate how and why the asymmetries that have characterized the global North and South in the past and present are growing more acute. This important book will be of interest to students and scholars of international political ecomy, globalisation, international trade and development.
