About the Authors
  • This book represents a new viewpoint of economic globalization. Until now, the debate has been polarized between those attacking globalization (such as the demonstrators at the WTO meetings), and its defenders (mostly in the U.S. business community). Jay Mandle argues that opponents fail to understand that broadly-based benefits for the poor are latent in the economic globalization process. Simultaneously, defenders have insufficiently acknowledged that it creates innocent victims who should be the object of ameliorative policies. Mandle describes effective policies to be adopted at the national and international levels to make globalization fair.

    • Links a concern with justice with economic analysis
    • Represents a new voice in the on-going globalization debate
    • Written in accessible language, while still adhering to the logic of economic theory

    "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

    "Globalization and the Poor is a provocative and accomplished piece of engaged scholarship that is timely asit is important. In a period when knee-jerk rejections of globalization by so called progressives are all too common, it is heartening indeed to read a serious and purposeful defense globalization coming from the left." Peter Conclanis, University of North Carolina
