Book Description

Understanding the New Global Economy: A European Perspective argues that globalisation is facing economic and political headwinds. A new global economic geography is emerging, cross-border relationships are changing, and global governance structures must come to terms with a new multipolar world.


This book clarifies the fundamental questions and trade-offs in this new global economy, and gives readers the tools to understand contemporary debates. It presents a range of possible policy options, without being prescriptive.


Following a modular structure, each chapter takes a similar approach but can also be read as a stand-alone piece. State of the art academic research and historical experiences are weaved throughout the book and readers are pointed towards relevant sources of information .


This text is an accessible guide to the contemporary world economy, suited to students of international economics, political economy, globalisation and European studies. It will also be valuable reading for researchers, professionals and general readers interested in economics, politics and civil society.
