If you like leftist Canadian thinkers like John Raulston Saul or Linda McQuaig, you'll love this handy little book. It is less obtrusively philosophical than Saul, less earthily anecdotal than McQuaig, but squarely in their broad line of thought.
Albeit in a somewhat muted and oblique way, the volume makes it clear that in its root impulses, globalization is an Anglo-Saxon phenomenon: Nixon's abandonment of the gold standard in 1973, Thatcher's coming to power in the UK in 1978.
It is odd for a Canadian based series that the major Canadian player of this era - our dear, late PET, despised by Nixon, Regan, Thatcher -- isn't even in the index.
Useful facts: the WTO is founded in 1994; its major instrument becomes the 1997 MAI (Multilateral Agreement on Investment). David Korten features heavily in the debate (his mid-90s WHEN CORPORATIONS RULE THE WORLD is not in the bibliography, even if a 1997 follow-up, THE POST-CORPORATE WORLD, is present). What is perhaps the book's most clutching assertion (one Korten had made more or less made in that earlier volume) is on page 73: "For every dollar that is needed to facilitate the trade in real goods, nine dollars is gambled in foreign exchange markets."

What's going on in our times in trade and finance usually escapes our notice, but it has alarming consequences for everyday people. Jobs that used to support families are disappearing. Bank depositors are now at least somewhat responsible for bank defaults. Pensions are at risk. Our country is now increasingly dependent on international trade and banking in ways that we never were before.
This quick and easy read gives you a pretty good framework for understanding globalization of trade and the flow of money. It may seem like a boring topic, but your job, your pension or 401K, your bank deposits, and your country's independence and security are at stake. And you can do something--vote intelligently.

Ideal book if you take a Political Science class regarding globalization. Tends to be the text that most professors use. Nothing special about it just outlines the history of...guess what....globalization!
