More Information
In this book a distinguished group of international contributors, from both developing and higher income countries, identify and discuss major social conflicts, labour and distributional concerns, environmental issues and impacts arising from the very rapid increase in globalisation experienced since the early 1970s.

Issues considered include possible alternatives to globalisation; cultural and linguistic inequalities associated with globalisation, consequences of growing regionalism and economic inequality between and within nations. Poverty, international migration, biodiversity conservation, natural resource sustainability, and global trade in genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are also discussed.

A substantial introductory chapter provides a significant overview of the rate and process of economic globalisation and integrates the contributions and their interconnections for the reader. Economic Globalisation offers policy proposals and responses and represents divergent views and rigorous theoretical analysis.

Economists, particularly those with an interest in international economics, labour, environmental and ecological economics, macroeconomics and social economics will all find this book of great interest.
Critical Acclaim
‘. . . the book is interesting and the issues focused upon bring to light the different perspectives on globalisation that would be useful to the student, manager and the researcher.’
– Ajit Prasad, Global Business Review

‘This work makes a significant contribution to the literature on globalisation. It is comprehensive and cogently addresses serious questions, providing a variety of perspectives without sacrificing rigor. The editors provide an excellent overview and have thoughtfully chosen the topics. This will be an essential book for anyone who wants an intelligent discussion of the real issues surrounding globalisation.’
– Darwin C. Hall, California State University, US, Editor, Contemporary Economic Policy and Editor, Advances in the Economics of Environmental Resources
