- Date of publication:
- November 2012
In these times of rapidly changing trends in global trade, investment, labor relations, and economic development, Real World Globalization is an essential guide. Its 57 articles provide highly accessible introductions to trade and financial institutions, work in the global economy, international debt, and global environmental and resource issues.
An extensive chapter on economic development critically analyzes strategies in countries from Nepal to Bolivia, and features a debate on the significance of rich nations’ agricultural subsidies.
The twelfth edition is thoroughly revised and updated, with ten new articles and several updated articles. It includes updated chapters on war and imperialism, global aspects of economic crisis, and the environment.
“As textbooks become more conservative and less topical, I find that Dollars & Sense readers are more useful than ever in my undergraduate classes. They are jargon-free, up-to-date, and inexpensive, as well as consistently and thoughtfully progressive. I recommend them highly.” —ROBIN HAHNEL, American University
“The articles provide students with access to current economic issues, along with a progressive framework. The writing is always good. Students always find them to-the-point, and learn a lot from them.”
—BILL GANLEY, State University of New York–Buffalo
“Real World Globalization is an indispensable tool for understanding the social impacts of the new global economy, both domestically and internationally, and is written in a language and style that’s accessible yet without compromise of rigor or principle.” —GERALD SUSSMAN, Portland State University
