Real World Globalization is an essential guide to the changing trends in global trade, investment, labor relations, and economic development, especially in the Covid-19 era. Its well-researched, clearly written articles are drawn from the pages of Dollars & Sense, the leading magazine of popular economics. They provide highly accessible analysis of global corporations, international institutions and “free trade” agreements, globalization and conditions of labor, international debt, environmental and resource issues, and alternatives to dominant policies and institutions.

This 21st edition is thoroughly revised and updated, with new articles on the continued impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, cryptocurrency, climate change, and immigration.

Its distinguished list of contributors includes James M. Cypher, Gerald Epstein, Jayati Ghosh, Arthur MacEwan, John Miller, Thomas Palley, Robert Pollin, Vijay Prashad, and many others.

“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
