Quatrième de couverture
I have written this book because while I was at the World Bank, I saw first hand the devastating effect that globalization can have on developing countries, and especially the poor within those countries. I believe that globalization - the removal of barriers to free trade and the closer integration of national economies - can be a force for good and that it has the potential to enrich everyone in the world, particularly the poor. But I also believe that if this is to be the case, the way globalization has been managed, including the international trade agreements that have played such a large role in removing those barriers and the policies that have been imposed on developing countries in the process of globatization, need to be radically rethought.
