Why Globalization Works

«

"Let a splendid new book on globalization be the last for a while: it will not be bettered soon. . . . [A] marvelous new book. . . . Mr. Wolf’s new book, Why Globalization Works, is the fullest and most sophisticated treatment to date of the case for globalization. All the topics he addresses . . . have been addressed elsewhere, but never before with such depth of thinking, and in one place . . . The definitive treatment of the subject, and an absorbing read for anybody with an appetite for moderate intellectual exertion."—Economist



"A powerful addition to the growing literature on globalization. . . . Why Globalization Works . . . should help move the public debate away from whether to be for or against globalization and towards how best to strengthen the working of the global economy."—Stanley Fischer, Financial Times



"Wolf offers a powerful defence of the global market economy."—The Sunday Telegraph



"No one has summarized more coherently the recent, voluminous research. . . . Elegantly and persuasively, Wolf marshals the facts."—Niall Ferguson, Sunday Telegraph




"Wolf is always thoughtful, and mainly readable."—David Smith, The Sunday Times



"Accessible and clearly argued. . . . A wealth of material on every page."—Bruce Bartlett, Wall Street Journal



"A powerful book."—Washington Post

"[Why Globalization Works] is a necessary and compelling read for all who want to understand the logic of unfolding events."—Robert Skidelsky, New Statesman



"Why Globalization Works . . . is a meticulous, well-structured and persuasive contribution to one of the great issues of our times."—Martin Vander Weyer, The Spectator

Received rating of "Outstanding" from the 2005 University Press Books Committee

"This brilliant book should be read by anyone who cares about the future of the developing world—that is, anyone who cares about the future. Wolf’s book will be the definitive statement of the case for market-based globalization."—Lawrence Summers, President, Harvard University

"Wolf provides not just a devastating intellectual critique of the opponents of globalization, but a civilised, wise and optimistic view of our economic and political future. It is vital that his message be widely read and understood."—Mervyn King, Governor of the Bank of England



"As Wolf slices and dices both the critics and the cheerleaders of economic globalization, he offers a deeply reasoned and cogently explained case for its inevitability. A definitive analysis."—Kenneth Rogoff, Harvard University

Kunders vurdering

S
Student – 31.10.2005

– Som student i Utviklingsstudier har jeg lest mye litteratur fra anti-globaliseringsbevegelsen, men må si at jeg allikvel ser de argumentene Wolf kommer med for hvorfor kritikerne av globaliseringen tar feil. Han argumenterer for at handel ikke er skadelig for u-landene, og for at anti-globaliseringsbevegelsen graver u-landenes grav med sine reformønsker. Han tar for seg veldig mange temaer, som de store TNC'ene, merkevarer, handel, miljø osv. Dette gjør han samtidig som han trekker frem den kritikken han argumenterer mot.
Dette gjør at stofet blir mer forståeliog, og at man kan se begge sidene av saken. Noe av stoffet kan være litt vanskelig, med store regnestykker over import, eksport og handelsbalanse, men disse sidene kan man trygt hoppe over om man vil.
