Editorial Reviews

Review

"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."

-

Metro



"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.

7 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Studio Hayek on May 5, 2010
Format: Hardcover
This book doesn't waste a word, made me smile and laugh in a dozen places and taught me a great deal about what makes us prosperous. The more I learn about economics the more I realize how important the ideas in this book are. No wonder one of the most important books in economics, The Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith discusses similar topics.

This book is very well researched, easy to read, presents interesting and convincing data, and uses novel and at times funny examples to describe how individuals interact and benefit from each other through specialization and trade. It discusses the topic of globalization and along the way educates about capitalism, freedom and economics.

This book reversed my thinking about the effects of population and immigration. I was also glad to see the author's checklist of requirements that the a defense industry sector should meet before receiving special protection from international competition.

One last thing I really like about this book is the list of suggested readings at the end of each chapter.

Thank you Prof. Boudreaux.

Format: Hardcover
Professor Boudreaux, a scholar in his own right, offers a technical but highly readable trade book that anyone interested in the topic will particularly enjoy.

A must read for international business majors, economists, and future politicians.
