Greenwood guides to business and economics


One of a series of seven volumes intended to promote economic literacy in high-school students and other non-expert readers, this work by Boudreaux (economics, George Mason U.) is an introduction to globalization, which he defines as "the advance of human co-operation across national boundaries." He provides basic exposition of the standard economic concepts and arguments pertinent to globalization, offering chapters on the economic case for free trade; trade, jobs, and wages; alleged exceptions to the case for free trade; the balance of trade and trade deficits; and the institutions of globalization. Those looking for explanation of the arguments of the critics of capitalist globalization or theories that stray significantly from neoclassical orthodoxy are advised to go elsewhere.
