Due to massive media coverage, many people are familiar with the controversy and organized resistance that globalization has generated around the world, yet explaining what globalization actually means in practice is a complicated task. For those wanting to learn more, this book is an excellent place to start. An experienced economist, Joseph Stiglitz had a brilliant career in academia before serving for four years on President Clinton's Council of Economic Advisors and then three years as chief economist and senior vice president of the World Bank. His book clearly explains the functions and powers of the main institutions that govern globalization--the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and the World Trade Organization--along with the ramifications, both good and bad, of their policies. He strongly believes that globalization can be a positive force around the world, particularly for the poor, but only if the IMF, World Bank, and WTO dramatically alter the way they operate, beginning with increased transparency and a greater willingness to examine their own actions closely. Of his time at the World Bank, he writes, "Decisions were made on the basis of what seemed a curious blend of ideology and bad economics, dogma that sometimes seemed to be thinly veiling special interests.... Open, frank discussion was discouraged--there was no room for it." The book is not entirely critical, however: "Those who vilify globalization too often overlook its benefits," Stiglitz writes, explaining how globalization, along with foreign aid, has improved the living standards of millions around the world. With this clear and balanced book, Stiglitz has contributed significantly to the debate on this important topic. --Shawn Carkonen -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe.

It is always better to hear things from the horse's mouth. Eminent economist (Nobel Prize Winner no less) Joseph Stiglitz has been directly involved with some of the most serious financial crises in recent times. Not limited to academia and economic theory he served in high profile policy positions including as senior VP and chief economist in the World Bank. For me, it's also important that he spent extensive time with people in the affected countries. The description of modern international economic management: "from one's luxury hotel, one can callously impose policies about which one would think twice if one knew the people whose life one was destroying..." (p. 24) does not apply to him. His case studies provide the backdrop for his analysis of globalization as well as concrete evidence for some of his critical contentions. This is not a dry economics book; it is a captivating read that offers a very accessible examination of global economic and financial systems.
To position Stiglitz up-front: he is not against globalization - in his estimation it is quality-neutral as a conception and it is here to stay. The aim of his study is to show what lessons need to be learned and applied to make globalization live up to its potential for the majority of the world's populations. The red thread of the book is the examination of the primarily negative impact that globalization has had on many developing countries and the two billion or so poor who live on less than $2/per day. His reasoning why this has been the case and what is to be done to bring about positive change makes this book an important resource for the critics and the proponents of globalization alike.

Auf sehr eindrucksvolle und leicht verständliche Weise beschreibt Stiglitz vor allem die Tätigkeiten und Programme der internationalen Finanzinstitutionen IMF und Weltbank. Als ehemaliger Mitarbeiter der Weltbank hatte er natürlich guten Einblick in die sonst so undurchschaubaren Organisationen. Er lässt dabei kaum ein gutes Haar an den beiden und zeigt Fehler während der Asienkrise und der Transformation in Russland auf. Dabei wirkt die Darstellung häufig doch recht einseitig - und er selber hätte natürlich alles besser gemacht.
In der zweiten Hälfte lässt das Buch allerdings eindeutig nach und es kommt zu häufigen Wiederholungen. Teilweise geht der klare Aufbau verloren und es ist keine Struktur mehr erkennbar. So entstand für mich der Eindruck, dieser zweite Teil sei mit sehr viel Druck und Eile hingeschrieben worden.
Die abschliessenden Visionen zu einer Verbesserung des Globalisierungsprozesses bieten leider nichts Neues. Dennoch bietet das Buch einen sehr interessanten Einblick in jüngste wirtschaftliche Krisen und in die Irrungen und Wirrungen der Globalisierung.

This is a very readable book by one of the authors of 'asymmetric information'. The book describes the disastrous consequences of the neo-classical equilibrium rules imposed on the world by the World Bank and IMF, and their reenforcement by the US Treasury and the EU. The book is written in measured, nonideological style by a theorist and practitioneer who understands that the standard model is wrong. That theory, neo-classical equilibrium theory or 'general equilibrium theory', teaches that unregulated free markets are optimal, that they provide the highest efficiency and the best of all possible worlds. When there is a problem then the standard advice (since Friedman-Reagan-thatcher) is to deregulate (even public water supplies are now sold to global industries). But to the contrary, there is not one whit of hard empirical evidence that that viewpoint holds a drop of water. The recent empirical evidence is instead that financial markets in particular, and highly liquid markets in general, are dynamically unstable, do not admit equilibrium of any kind: Adam Smith's regulating Invisible Hand does not exist in liquid markets.
Stiglitz provides us with one practical example after the other of the instability of deregulated markets. That is the value of this book. The author could have begun better by explaining to us just who/what are the supra-national, bureaucratic powers known as the IMF, the World Bank, the World Trade Organization, how are they financed and who holds holds the power. This would have been useful, especially as Americans are now told that their democratically-elected (excepting the current occupant) government should adhere to the nondemocratically-imposed rules of the WTO.
