Making Globalization Work by Joseph Stiglitz
Book DescriptionFrom Nobel Prize winner Joseph Stiglitz, "Making Globalization Work" gives real, concrete ways to deal with third world debt, make trade fair and tackle global warming. In "Globalization and its Discontents" Joseph Stiglitz changed the views of the public and world leaders alike by showing why globalization doesn't work for the world's poor. In this bold, ambitious follow-up, Stiglitz shows how powerful organizations such as the UN, the IMF and the World Bank can be made to consider everyone's interests. Stiglitz examines how change has occurred rapidly over the past four years, proposing solutions and looking to the future. He puts forward radical new solutions to the seemingly intractable international problems which we face - in forms that are more likely to be accepted both by the US and the developing world than previous proposals. Another world is possible, he argues, and is not only morally right, but of benefit to us all. "Passionate, engaging ...he speaks from the heart as well as the head". ("Independent"). "The man with a mission to save the poor ...offers a wealth of ideas for global reform". ("The Times"). "A searing critique of conventional wisdom". ("Newsweek"). "An excellent book ...a lodestar for those who want to achieve a different and better world". ("Guardian"). Joseph Stiglitz is one of the world's best-known economists. He was Chief Economist at the World Bank until January 2000. Before that he was Chairman of President Clinton's Council of Economic Advisers. He is currently Professor of Finance and Economics at Columbia University. He won the Nobel Prize for Economics in 2001 and is the author of the bestselling "Globalization and Its Discontents" and "The Roaring Nineties", both published by Penguin.

Books By Author Joseph Stiglitz
Euro, Hardback (August 2016)
Can the euro be saved? Laying bare the European Central Bank's misguided inflation-only mandate and explaining why austerity has condemned Europe to unending stagnation, the author outlines the fundamental reforms necessary to the structure of the eurozone and the policies imposed on the member countries suffering the most.
Great Divide, Paperback (April 2016)
Why has inequality increased in the Western world - and what can we do about it? This title argues that inequality is a choice - the cumulative result of unjust policies and misguided priorities. It exposes the inequality that is afflicting America and other Western countries in thrall to neoliberalism.
Price of Inequality, Paperback (April 2013)
Explains why we are experiencing destructively high levels of inequality - and why this is not inevitable. This book focuses chiefly on the gross inequality to which these systems give rise, but also explains how inextricably interlinked they are.
Freefall, Paperback (October 2010)» View all books by Joseph Stiglitz
When world economy went into freefall, so too did our unquestioning faith in markets. But what happens now? Are bailouts and stern lectures enough, or do we need a rethink of our entire financial system? This book shows why far radical reforms are needed to avoid future crises, and how we now have opportunity to create a new global economic order.
