"When all is said, however, we lack a clear, coherent and comprehensive sense of how globalization works, and how it might be made to work better. Enter Jagdish Bhagwati, the internationally renowned economist, known equally for the clarity of his arguments and the sharpness of his pen. In this book, Bhagwati takes on globalization's critics, using sound economic principles and vivid examples rather than inflamed rhetoric, to show that globalization is in fact the most powerful force for social good in the world today.".
"Bhagwati carefully explains the fallacies that underlie many of the critics' arguments, suggesting that there is a good reason why most globalization protesters come from rich rather than poor countries. Exploring globalization's "human face" in great detail, Bhagwati demonstrates its beneficial effects on a panoply of social issues including poverty, child labor, women's rights, democracy, wage and labor standards, and the environment. He concludes that by focusing so much on globalization's purported evils, we are missing the opportunity to focus on accelerating its achievements while coping with its downsides."--BOOK JACKET.
