Has globalization gone too far? by Dani Rodrik( )

28 editions published between 1997 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 2,097 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Globalization is exposing social fissures between those with the education, skills, and mobility to flourish in an unfettered world market-the apparent "winners"-and those without. These apparent "losers" are increasingly anxious about their standards of living and their precarious place in an integrated world economy. The result is severe tension between the market and broad sectors of society, with governments caught in the middle.Compounding the very real problems that need to be addressed by all involved, the kneejerk rhetoric of both sides threatens to crowd out rational debate. From the United States to Europe to Asia, positions are hardening. Author Dani Rodrik brings a clear and reasoned voice to these questions. Has Globalization Gone Too Far? takes an unblinking and objective look at the benefits-and risks-of international economic integration, and criticizes mainstream economists for downplaying its dangers. It also makes a unique and persuasive case that the "winners" have as much at stake from the possible consequences of social instability as the "losers." As Rodrik points out, ." . . social disintegration is not a spectator sport-those on the sidelines also get splashed with mud from the field. Ultimately, the deepening of social fissures can harm all." President Clinton has read the book and it provided the conceptual basis for the trade/IMF portions of the State of the Union message in January 1998
In search of prosperity : analytic narratives on economic growth by Dani Rodrik( )

26 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 1,966 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a series of country studies by leading economists. It helps to shed light on some of the most important growth puzzles of our time. What emerges is a deeper understanding of the centrality of institutions. Economies that have performed well over the long term owe their success not to geography or trade, but to institutions that have generated market-oriented incentives, protected property rights, and enabled stability. However, these narratives warn against a cookie-cutter approach to institution building
The Economics of Middle East peace : views from the region by Stanley Fischer( )

One economics, many recipes : globalization, institutions, and economic growth by Dani Rodrik( Book )

29 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In One Economics, Many Recipes, leading economist Dani Rodrik argues that neither globalizers nor antiglobalizers have got it right. While economic globalization can be a boon for countries that are trying to dig out of poverty, success usually requires following policies that are tailored to local economic and political realities rather than obeying the dictates of the international globalization establishment. A definitive statement of Rodrik's original and influential perspective on economic growth and globalization, One Economics, Many Recipes shows how successful countries craft their own unique strategies--and what other countries can learn from them. To most proglobalizers, globalization is a source of economic salvation for developing nations, and to fully benefit from it nations must follow a universal set of rules designed by organizations such as the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and the World Trade Organization and enforced by international investors and capital markets. But to most antiglobalizers, such global rules spell nothing but trouble, and the more poor nations shield themselves from them, the better off they are. Rodrik rejects the simplifications of both sides, showing that poor countries get rich not by copying what Washington technocrats preach or what others have done, but by overcoming their own highly specific constraints. And, far from conflicting with economic science, this is exactly what good economics teaches."
The globalization paradox : democracy and the future of the world economy by Dani Rodrik( Book )

23 editions published between 2011 and 2017 in English and held by 1,085 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses how democracy and national self-determination cannot be pursued simultaneously with economic globalization and instead promotes customizable globalization with international rules to achieve balanced prosperity
Handbook of development economics by Hollis Chenery( Book )

32 editions published between 1988 and 2012 in English and Dutch and held by 981 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handbook organizes chapters by sets of policies that are important components of discussions about how to facilitate development. In each chapter, authors identify and discuss the relevant theoretical and empirical literature that describes the fundamental problems that the policies seek to remedy or ameliorate, as well as the literature that evaluates the effects of the policies. It presents an accurate, self-contained survey of the current state of the field. It summarizes the most recent discussions, and elucidates new developments. Although original material is also included, the main aim is the provision of comprehensive and accessible surveys
Straight talk on trade : ideas for a sane world economy by Dani Rodrik( Book )

31 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and Chinese and held by 868 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An honest discussion of free trade and how nations can sensibly chart a path forward in today’s global economyNot so long ago the nation-state seemed to be on its deathbed, condemned to irrelevance by the forces of globalization and technology. Now it is back with a vengeance, propelled by a groundswell of populists around the world. In Straight Talk on Trade, Dani Rodrik, an early and outspoken critic of economic globalization taken too far, goes beyond the populist backlash and offers a more reasoned explanation for why our elites’ and technocrats’ obsession with hyper-globalization made it more difficult for nations to achieve legitimate economic and social objectives at home: economic prosperity, financial stability, and equity.Rodrik takes globalization’s cheerleaders to task, not for emphasizing economics over other values, but for practicing bad economics and ignoring the discipline’s own nuances that should have called for caution. He makes a case for a pluralist world economy where nation-states retain sufficient autonomy to fashion their own social contracts and develop economic strategies tailored to their needs. Rather than calling for closed borders or defending protectionists, Rodrik shows how we can restore a sensible balance between national and global governance. Ranging over the recent experiences of advanced countries, the eurozone, and developing nations, Rodrik charts a way forward with new ideas about how to reconcile today’s inequitable economic and technological trends with liberal democracy and social inclusion.Deftly navigating the tensions among globalization, national sovereignty, and democracy, Straight Talk on Trade presents an indispensable commentary on today’s world economy and its dilemmas, and offers a visionary framework at a critical time when we need it most
Economics rules : why economics works, when it fails, and how to tell the difference by Dani Rodrik( )

28 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 768 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The economics profession has become a favourite punching bag in the aftermath of the global financial crisis. Economists are widely reviled and their influence derided by the general public. Yet their services have never been in greater demand. To unravel the paradox, we need to understand both the strengths and weaknesses of economics. Dani Rodrik argues that the multiplicity of theoretical frameworks - what economists call 'models' that exist side by side is economics' great strength. Economists are trained to hold diverse, possibly contradictory models of the world in their minds. This is what allows them, when they do their job right, to comprehend the world, make useful suggestions for improving it, and to advance their stock of knowledge over time. In short, it is what makes economics a 'science' a different kind of science from physics or some other natural sciences, but a science nonetheless. But syncretism is not a comfortable state of mind, and economists often jettison it for misplaced confidence and arrogance, especially when they confront questions of public policy. Economists are prone to fads and fashions, and behave too often as if their discipline is about the search for the model that works always and everywhere, rather than a portfolio of models. Their training lets them down when it comes to navigating among diverse models and figuring out which one applies where. Ideology and political preferences frequently substitute for analysis in choosing among models. So the book offers both a defence and critique of economics. Economists' way of thinking about social phenomena has great advantages. But the flexible, contextual nature of economics is also its Achilles' heel in the hands of clumsy practitioners
Economics rules : the rights and wrongs of the dismal science by Dani Rodrik( Book )

15 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and Chinese and held by 686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Takes a close look at economics to examine when it falls short and when it works, to give a surprisingly upbeat account of the discipline. Drawing on the history of the field and his deep experience as a practitioner, Rodrik argues that economics can be a powerful tool that improves the world--but only when economists abandon universal theories and focus on getting the context right. Economics Rules argues that the discipline's much-derided mathematical models are its true strength. Models are the tools that make economics a science. Too often, however, economists mistake a model for the model that applies everywhere and at all times
The new global economy and developing countries : making openness work by Dani Rodrik( Book )

13 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Policymakers in the developing world are grappling with new dilemmas created by openness to trade and capital flows. What role, if any, remains for the state in promoting industrialization? Does openness worsen inequality, and if so, what can be done about it? What is the best way to handle turbulence from the world economy, especially the fickleness of international capital flows? In this study, Dani Rodrik argues that successful integration into the world economy requires a complementary set of policies and institutions at home. Policymakers must reinforce their external strategy of liberalization with an internal strategy that gives the state substantial responsibility in building physical and human capital and mediating social conflicts."--Jacket
External debt, adjustment, and burden sharing : a unified framework by Ishac Diwan( Book )

16 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because the disincentive effect of a debt overhang is generally small, debt reduction does not lead to important efficiency gains on this account. This study develops, instead, a framework that highlights the inefficiency created by the liquidity constraint faced by over-indebted countries. Adjustment and investment opportunities that are profitable at the world interest rate often cannot be undertaken for lack of sufficient funds. New creditors are deterred from investing, because they expect to be "taxed" by the old creditors who stand to gain disproportionately. This leads to inefficiency when a class of new creditors have a comparative advantage over old creditors. The shortage of liquidity introduces a time inconsistency. New (unconditional) loans will be consumed rather than invested. In this context, conditional lending can release the liquidity constraint in a time-consistent way and lead to efficiency gains that can be shared among the debtor, the old creditors, and the new creditors. The role of debt reduction is, thus, to create the "headroom" needed for these new and more efficient creditors to participate

The globalization paradox : why global markets, states, and democracy can't coexist by Dani Rodrik( Book )

20 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Globalization, Rodrik argues, rests on shaky foundations. Despite the benefits it has brought in much of the world, there are profound conflicts of interest between democracy, national determination, and full economic globalization. He traces the idea's history, pinpoints its weaknesses, and points the way forward
The Political economy of Turkey : debt, adjustment, and sustainability by Harvard University, Cambridge, M. A., Usa John F. Kennedy School of Government( Book )

12 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Turkey stands at a crossroad after a decade of adjustment to its severe debt crisis in the late 1970s. This volume brings together a group of contributors who discuss the consequences of this transition and the likely pains for the future
Why nationalism by Yael Tamir( Book )

6 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why nationalism is a permanent political force--and how it can be harnessed once again for liberal ends. Populist politicians exploit nationalism for authoritarian, chauvinistic, racist, and xenophobic purposes, reinforcing the view that it is fundamentally reactionary and antidemocratic. The author makes a passionate argument for a very different kind of nationalism--one that revives its participatory, creative, and egalitarian virtues, answers many of the problems caused by neoliberalism and hyperglobalism, and is essential to democracy at its best
Emerging agenda for global trade : high stakes for developing countries by Robert Z Lawrence( Book )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three of the highest profile issues on the international trade policy agenda are competition policy, labor standards, and linking trade and environment. This Policy Essay focuses on to what extent international rules in these new trade areas are needed, and considers how developing countries could be affected by global agreements. Robert Lawrence argues that if an international agreement on competition policy was possible, developing countries would derive considerable benefits. Dani Rodrik considers whether a social-safeguards approach can be made to work for labor standards and suggests that the risks of not negotiating such a clause outweigh the dangers of an inappropriately designed process. Finally John Whalley argues that the central issue for trade and the environment is whether developing countries should be compensated for policies encouraging environmental restraint
From "Hindu growth" to productivity surge : the mystery of the Indian growth transition by Dani Rodrik( )

30 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most conventional accounts of India's recent economic performance associate the pick-up in economic growth with the liberalization of 1991. This paper demonstrates that the transition to high growth occured around 1980, a full decade before economic liberalization. We investigate a number of hypotheses about the causes of this growth favorable external environment, fiscal stimulus, trade liberalization, internal liberalization, the green revolution, public investment and find them wanting. We argue that growth was triggered by an attitudinal shift on the part of the national government towards a pro-business (as opposed to pro-liberalization) approach. We provide some evidence that is consistent with this argument. We also find that registered manufacturing built up in previous decades played an important role in influencing the pattern of growth across the Indian states
Institutions rule : the primacy of institutions over geography and integration in economic development by Dani Rodrik( )

32 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We estimate the respective contributions of institutions, geography, and trade in determining income levels around the world, using recently developed instruments for institutions and trade. Our results indicate that the quality of institutions trumps' everything else. Once institutions are controlled for, measures of geography have at best weak direct effects on incomes, although they have a strong indirect effect by influencing the quality of institutions. Similarly, once institutions are controlled for, trade is almost always insignificant, and often enters the income equation with the wrong' (i.e., negative) sign, although trade too has a positive effect on institutional quality. We relate our results to recent literature, and where differences exist, trace their origins to choices on samples, specification, and instrumentation
Das Globalisierungs-Paradox die Demokratie und die Zukunft der Weltwirtschaft by Dani Rodrik( Book )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2020 in German and English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein Plädoyer gegen Hyperglobalisierung und für eine gewisse demokratische Renationalisierung der Wirtschaftspolitik
Towards a better global economy : policy implications for citizens worldwide in the twenty-first century by Franklin Allen( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the factors that are most likely to facilitate the process of beneficial economic growth in low-, middle-, and high-income countries. It examines past, present, and future economic growth; demographic changes; the hyperglobalization of trade; the effect of finance on growth; climate change and resource depletion; and the sense of global citizenship and the need for global governance in order to draw longer-term implications, identify policy options for improving the lives of average citizens around the world, and make the case for the need to confront new challenges with truly global policy responses. The book documents how demographic changes, convergence, and competition are likely to bring about massive shifts in the sectoral and geographical composition of global output and employment, as the center of gravity of the global economy moves toward Asia and emerging economies elsewhere. It shows that the legacies of the 2008-09 crisis--high unemployment levels, massive excess capacities, and high debt levels--are likely to reduce the standard of living of millions of people in many countries over a long period of adjustment and that fluctuations in international trade, financial markets, and commodity prices, as well as the tendency of institutions at both the national and international level to favor the interests of the better-off and more powerful pose substantial risks for citizens of all countries."--Publisher description
