What Do We Know About Globalization: Issues of Poverty & Income Distribution examines the two fundamental arguments that are often raised against globalization: that it produces inequality and that it increases poverty.

  • A lively and accessible argument about the impact and consequences of globalization from a leading figure in economics - Dehesa is Chairman of the Centre for Economic Policy Research and a member of the Group of Thirty
  • Demonstrates the ways in which wealthy nations and developing countries alike have failed to implement changes that would result in a reversal of these social ills
  • Dispels the notion of the so-called 'victim of globalization', demonstrating how, despite popular belief, acceleration of globalization actually stands to reduce the levels of poverty and inequality worldwide
  • Asks whether increased technological, economic, and cultural change can save us from international income inequality, and by extension, further violence, terrorism and war
