The Princeton Encyclopedia of the World Economy beautifully integrates the ideas, theories, institutions, policies, and analyses of the modern global economy. It provides expert essays on four major areas of economic globalization: international trade, international finance, international production, and international economic development. The essays are written in language that bridges the gap between general treatments found in popular publications and the complex analyses found in specialist publications, such as academic journals and monographs. . . . This is a wonderful work for the serious study of the global economy.
