Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe:

An eye-opening primer on some of the less explored aspects of globalization. We know that globalization has moved many jobs away from the industrialized countries and to the Third World, where people are paid far less. But do we know the consequences of this upheaval for the AIDS epidemic, the environment, and the costs of basic medicines? In one concise book, William K.Tabb, a professor of economics at Queens College in New York, provides an informative and incisive introduction to these complex themes, and a clear perspective on how they mesh and how vitally they matter to us all. In a chapter on banking, for example, Tabb explains how the WTO, IMF, and World Bank's efforts to regulate the world's economy have driven entire nations into insurmountable debt: the increasing mobility of money drives up inflation and forces countries into a web of dependency, where their only option is to obtain loans from multinational banks. While much has been written about the effects of globalization on corporations, Unequal Partners is a comprehensive introduction to globalization's effects on everything else. It is also an excellent primer on the issues behind the growing anticorporate movement.

Inhaltsangabe:

We know that globalization has sent labor from industrialized countries to the Third World, where workers are paid far less. But do we know the effect of the global market on education, the spread of AIDS, and the costs of basic medicines? In clear detail, Unequal Partners shows how the merger of corporate and governmental interests has sacrificed public health and the environment for profits. The book also provides a blueprint for resistance by describing ?globalization from below?: the coalition of movements that has been increasingly effective in influencing corporate and governmental behavior worldwide. Unequal Partners is for anyone who wants to understand how to keep the escalating forces of globalization in check.
