Four years after his global best-seller, Joseph Stiglitz now brings the story up to the present, examining how change has occurred even more rapidly since then, proposing solutions and looking into the future. Here he puts forward radical new ways of dealing with the crippling indebtedness of developing countries, a new system of global reserves to overcome international financial instability, and an economically incentivised framework for dealing with energy pollutions which create global warming and which threaten us on a planetary scale. He argues convincingly for the reform of global institutions such as the UN, the IMF and the World Bank to make them truly capable of responding to the problems of our age and shows why treating developing countries more fairly is not only morally right, but because it increases global public goods, is ultimately to the advantage of the developed world too. Above all, Stiglitz argues we need to change the way we think. Now more than ever before, globalization is bringing the countries and the peoples of the world into one interdependent community, bringing with it a need to think and act globally. This trenchant, intellectually powerful and inspiring book is a step in the process.

Présentation de l'éditeur:

From Nobel Prize winner Joseph Stiglitz, Making Globalization Work gives real, concrete ways to deal with third world debt, make trade fair and tackle global warming. In Globalization and its Discontents Joseph Stiglitz changed the views of the public and world leaders alike by showing why globalization doesn't work for the world's poor. In this bold, ambitious follow-up, Stiglitz shows how powerful organizations such as the UN, the IMF and the World Bank can be made to consider everyone's interests. Stiglitz examines how change has occurred rapidly over the past four years, proposing solutions and looking to the future. He puts forward radical new solutions to the seemingly intractable international problems which we face - in forms that are more likely to be accepted both by the US and the developing world than previous proposals. Another world is possible, he argues, and is not only morally right, but of benefit to us all. 'Passionate, engaging ... he speaks from the heart as well as the head'
  Independent 'The man with a mission to save the poor ... offers a wealth of ideas for global reform'
  The Times 'A searing critique of conventional wisdom'
  Newsweek 'An excellent book ... a lodestar for those who want to achieve a different and better world'
