Globaloney 2.0 : The Crash of 2008 and the Future of Globalization, Hardback Book

Globaloney 2.0 : The Crash of 2008 and the Future of Globalization Hardback

Part of the Globalization series


Globalization is in retreat, but history tells us that this is but a temporary reversal.

Globalization will return, but in what form? More cycles of boom and bust? Or can globalization be rebuilt on a more feasible and sustainable platform?

These are the compelling questions that Michael Veseth tackles in this thoroughly revised and updated edition of his award-winning book. Veseth shows how pre-crash visions of globalization were based on three powerful myths: that global finance was a stable foundation for a global economy, that global markets homogenized and Americanized the world, and that globalization itself was irresistible-impossible to shape or oppose at any level from the grassroots on up.

The world economic crisis has revealed globalization's Achilles heel: the fundamental instability of global financial markets and the unsettled foundation of economic globalization generally.

This realization is a necessary first step, but it alone is not enough.

We must rethink the rest of globalization's myths, Veseth persuasively argues, if we want to move beyond boom and bust to a sustainable global future.
