Publisher's Summary

In this eloquent challenge to the reigning wisdom on globalization, Dani Rodrik reminds us of the importance of the nation-state, arguing forcefully that when the social arrangements of democracies inevitably clash with the international demands of globalization, national priorities should take precedence. Combining history with insight, humor with good-natured critique, Rodrik’s case for a customizable globalization supported by a light frame of international rules shows the way to a balanced prosperity as we confront today’s global challenges in trade, finance, and labor markets.

A remarkable perspective

I got the book because my son had just finished a class with Professor Rodrik at Harvard. I teach an intro ECON class for high schoolers so have a few opinions on the topic. He provides a sweeping view of economic history and insights into current economic trends that I hadn’t heard before...he’s like that clear contrary voice wafting our of the cacophony of economic opinion. And he provides reasoned solution options for the world economic order to move forward. Actually gives you hope we could narrow the gap and bring the least advantages nations along.
