Book Description

One subject that never fails to spark debate is globalization. The phrase is used in every possible context, and yet its origins, nature and implications - especially for developing countries - are often misunderstood. In this monograph, Lord Brian Griffiths examines the theory and practice of globalization, and underlines its positive influences on wealth-creation and its success in raising millions out of poverty. Griffiths warns, however, that the benefits of globalization are predicated on the culture that it reflects, and urges Christians to work to ensure that globalization reflects the principles of Christian anthropology, especially as articulated in John Paul II's 1991 encyclical Centesimus Annus, rather than narrowly secularist alternatives.

Many of the assumptions you have about how economics works on a global scale are wrong. But this sets out what the most powerful driving forces are. A great primer for understanding today's headlines.

An excellent read on the relationship between development, politics and economics. It also helps one to appreciate the role of the Church in bringing about social justice - to be the true light and salt of the earth.
