Editorial Reviews


"No contemporary economic issue is as subject to misunderstanding, fear-mongering and polarised debate as globalization. In this superb explosition, couched in crystal-clear prose that can be grasped with ease, American academic Donald Boudreaux makes the case for a global trade in goods and services. Covers a crucial subject and deserves as wide a readership as possible."



"Boudreaux focuses on globalization, leading readers through terms, arguments, counterarguments, institutions, and a discussion of the impact of a global economy on the US and other countries….Free market arguments prevail in this work, but that is consistent with the feelings of most economists who study the issues objectively. Recommended. General readers; all levels of undergraduate students."

OK so most people know if they are pro or anti globalisation, but everyone should read this book; it's authoritative, short, clear, and knocks the anti camp out for ten; read it! the chapter on the balance of payments deficit should be compulsory reading for every politician and political/economic journalist before they are allowed to open their mouths on the subject! Don said on econtalk the price was outside his control but he wished it was cheaper, so do i, then it could be set text for my students.

I've read several recent books on globalization while planning an economic geography course, and this is the best-written. In particular, Boudreaux presents exactly the right amount of detail for beginning students (and for anyone else who wants to understand the subject without taking a year of economics beforehand). A course on globalization would require additional readings -- I'd supplement it with chapters from Global Shift, by Peter Dicken, among other things -- but this book is the best core text on the subject.

Professor Boudreaux has written an excellent guide for someone wishing to understand globalization. The book is concise, yet thorough and Dr. Boudreaux's text is polished and interesting. This text would be useful even for those with limited understanding of economic principles as Boudreaux excels at simplifying material that others try to make more confusing than it actually is. He is a down to earth teacher whose goal is to help you understand, not an ivory tower pinhead whose goal is to inflate his own ego by leaving you wondering how anyone can understand this stuff.
