Winners and Losers in Globalization "I don't expect this book to settle the debates over globalization:
there is too much real uncertainty about the issue, and anyway there
are too many people firmly committed to their views to be shaken by any
argument or evidence. But perhaps Mr. De la Dehesa's excellent book can
lower the temperature and give us all a better sense of what this new
global economy is really all about."
Paul Krugman, from the Foreword to Winners and Losers in Globalization
Seeking reason in the impassioned globalization debate, de la Dehesa
examines who stands to win and who stands to lose from the process of
globalization, in a style accessible to readers unfamiliar with
Objectively and dispassionately illuminates the emotionally charged globalization debate;
Acknowledges that the costs and benefits of globalization will not be distributed evenly;
Details the economic effects of globalization on individuals, governments, nation-states and business;
the impact of globalization on both labor markets and financial
markets, on global economic growth and on income distribution and real
convergence between different national economies.
