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.


What the Critics Say

"Cogent, well-written...critiques unalloyed globalization enthusiasts, taking aim at their desire to fully liberalize foreign trade ad capital movements." (Foreign Affairs)

Better late than never

A book challenging the status quo. Only if Democrats had read it. Unrestricted labor mobility is a tough ask whichever way you construct temp visas.
