informative, yet a single perspective on a complicated topic. made good use of specific examples which helped make it feel much more relevant.
This books raises interesting points that really should be part of any discussion about globalization, but it is ultimately a biased book.
This anti-globalization bias can be seen all over the book, but becomes quite apparent on chapter 7. In this chapter the author argues that well read econonists who know a lot about a lot of things (like the author) argue against globalization, while more dogmatic and pundit minded ones (called hedghogs throughout the chapter) are the only ones who argue for globalization. This argument is soon followed by the tale of how pro-trade economists only think the way they do because they were following the fashionable trend of supporting trade, but fails to acknowledge that anti-trade economists may suffer from the same bias in a world that is becoming more protectionist by the day. These are only the 2 most obvious case of the book biases.
Again: it is a good book, but biased. Readers beware!
