Description - Global Political Economy and the Wealth of Nations by Phillip O'Hara
The recent era of globalization and neoliberalism has left some predicting the end of traditional concepts such as the nation state and localized economies. This volume surveys the historical and contemporary performance of nations, continents, regions and corporations in the light of neoliberal globalization. Special reference is given to economic, social, cultural, political and environmental performance, as well as the trends and prognoses in Asia, Eastern Europe, Africa, America and Oceana. The book also examines international institutions with a focus on modern problems such as pollution, financial crises, terrorism and war. Clarity, craft and comprehensiveness are brought to this volume, leaving the reader with a better comprehension of the global political economy. Readers with an interest in political economy, international politics and economics generally will find this to be a good addition to their book collections.
