    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.
