Odd Couple : International Trade and Labor Standards in History, Hardback Book

Odd Couple : International Trade and Labor Standards in History Hardback

Part of the Yale Series in Economic and Financial History series

Description

It has become commonplace to think that globalization has produced a race to the bottom in terms of labor standards and quality of life: the cheaper the labor and the lower the benefits afforded workers, the more competitively a country can participate on the global stage.

But in this book the distinguished economic historian Michael Huberman demonstrates that globalization has in fact been very good for workers' quality of life, and that improved labor conditions have promoted globalization.
