About this product
- DescriptionThis new book is a gem! All the authors make important observations about the chaotic events of the past decade, while at the same time adding to their already substantial contributions to social science-Jeffrey Hart, Indiana UniversityMost studies of the world ecomy focus on highly developed countries and only on ecomic strategies. The New Global Ecomy in the Information Age is unique in integrating the political with the ecomic and in the truly global view it takes of the changes under way. It focuses on the effects of new computer and telecommunications techlogy in conditioning the policy choices of nation-states in both the less and more ecomically developed regions of the world.The authors analyze the new ecomic context in which nation-states operate, the main issues confronting them, and the way in which the politics of national development should change in the post-Cold War information age. They argue that the new world ecomy cant be separated easily from the new world society, and that national and international politics is the cement binding the two.
