About this product
- DescriptionHow to manage the global ecomy - and, more fundamentally, whether humanity wishes it to go in an ever more market-oriented, transnational corporation-dominated, and capital-footloose direction - is the most important international question of our time. In this short and trenchant history of those bodies -- the World Bank, IMF, WTO, and Group of Seven -- which have promoted this ecomic globalization, Walden Bello: - Points to their manifest failings; - Examines the major new ideas put forward for reforming the management of the world ecomy; - Argues for a much more fundamental shift towards a decentralized, pluralistic system of global ecomic governance allowing countries to follow development strategies sensitive to their own values and particular mix of constraints and opportunities.
