Book Description

This text presents a devastating critique of the currently fashionable idea of globalisation. Using comprehensive and non-technical language this book looks at the world's cultural and value diversity, and questions whether it is possible to impose a global policy, given these differences. Topics covered include:
* theories of distribution and welfare
* what leads to a good economic outcome?
* Egalitarian theories of welfarism
* global neoliberalism and the free market culture.
