He often begins each chapter with a blurb from a prominent globalization opponent, such as Naomi Klein, and then goes on to refute it. Legrain makes his case crystal clear and uses plenty of solid evidence to back up what he says. Although he does not think globalization is the best thing to happen to humanity, he does believe it benefits us more than we think.
This book is written from a European perspective, so there is a lot of attention given to preserving the "welfare state" for the needy. If you can get past that, you'll love the book.
makes for very compulsive reading.
