Globalization and the Poor

Jay R Mandle

$42.99

Paperback
"Jay Mandle's Globilization and the Poor is a brilliant examination of the benefits and the costs of globalization on the world's citizens. Mandle tackles the anti-globilization movement head on and exposes the central fallacies common to so many accepted criticisms of globalization. Arguing that the process of globalization could benefit by specific policies, he dissects and and illuminates where and how globalization can be reformed in the name of economic justice while ensuring that growth is encouraged and bolstered. Mandle's original work demonstrates why promoting open markets is beneficial to the spread of globalization and shows how the international community could promote policies that influence the degree to which harm and unnecessary dislocation occur." Louis Ferleger, Professor of History, Boston University

- Publisher The argument the author presents is that globalization is associated with the economic growth necessary to alleviate poverty. Globalization therefore should be encouraged. At the same time, governments must adopt policies that address the needs of those who are victimized by the dislocations caused by the process. The book responds to the opponents by emphasizing globalization's potential to alleviate poverty, but at the same time is critical of those who defend globalization without acknowledging the costs it imposes on innocent victims. In addressing the activist opponents of the process, the author maintains that they should not reject the global integration of world markets because of a concern for justice. Instead activists can advance the interests of the world's poor by mounting political movements to advance international agreements to stabilize the world economy and ensure labor rights.
