Editorial Reviews


"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

Book Description

This book represents a new viewpoint in the discussion of economic globalization. To date, the debate has been polarized between those attacking globalization, such as the demonstraters at the WTO meeting, and its defenders, mostly resident in the US business community. The author argues that opponents fail to see that broadly-based benefits for the poor are latent in the process. Defenders have insufficiently acknowledged that globalization creates innocent victims who should be the object of ameliorative policies. The author describes the policies that should be adopted -- both at the national and international levels -- to make globalization fair.

I read Globalization and the Poor and The Shock Doctrine recently within a few days of each other, and was struck by how differently they treat the same issue of trade globalization. Both books are thoroughly researched and well written, and both argue in favor of changing current trade practices so that sweeping economic changes will inflict less harm on the poorest and most vulnerable segments of society. Jay R. Mandle is a professor of economics at Colgate University, author of several books on economic development and economic growth, and a political activist for election reform. Naomi Klein is a journalist first and foremost, a much published author, and a passionate reformer. Their different backgrounds are reflected in the two books: Globalization and the Poor is an academic treatise on globalization, its systems and institutions, whereas The Shock Doctrine is a scorching indictment of those who control its implementation.

Globalization and the Poor (G&P). Dr. Mandle presents a detailed and cogent analysis of globalization, and the progress of international trade through the past several decades. While the presentation is detailed and somewhat technical, it provides sufficient tutorial information to be accessible to the layman. With his descriptions of the General Agreement on Tarriffs and Trade (GATT), the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP), the North American Free Trade Agreeement (NAFTA), and other 20th century systems of trade and international finance, Mandle has provided a fine overview of the fundamentals of world trade in our time.
G&P describes the major arguments favoring globalization along with a detailed description of three primary sources of opposition. The forces for globalization are in search of market growth and increased profits through lower costs.
