Descripción del producto

This powerful, unsettling book gives us a rare glimpse behind the closed doors of global financial institutions by the winner of the 2001 Nobel Prize in Economics.

When it was first published, this national bestseller quickly became a touchstone in the globalization debate. Renowned economist and Nobel Prize winner Joseph E. Stiglitz had a ringside seat for most of the major economic events of the last decade, including stints as chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers and chief economist at the World Bank. Particularly concerned with the plight of the developing nations, he became increasingly disillusioned as he saw the International Monetary Fund and other major institutions put the interests of Wall Street and the financial community ahead of the poorer nations. Those seeking to understand why globalization has engendered the hostility of protesters in Seattle and Genoa will find the reasons here. While this book includes no simple formula on how to make globalization work, Stiglitz provides a reform agenda that will provoke debate for years to come. Rarely do we get such an insider's analysis of the major institutions of globalization as in this penetrating book. With a new foreword for this paperback edition.

The author's credentials are impeccable - start with winning the Nobel Prize for Economics, among other things - and you can rely on the information and message in this book to be written from the vantage point witnessed few people, and understood by even fewer. This nether "conservative bashing" or "liberal bashing;" rather, "idiot bashing" and "ideologue bashing" as we learn that the current policies, efforts, objectives and results of the World Bank (and it's parter, the IMF) are now in complete opposition to the very raison d'être and principles on which it was founded. Stiglitz presents both the 30,000 foot view and the ground view, shows us the forest as well as the trees. This book is fundamental reading for anyone hoping to understand the world finance situation, the role of the U.S., the continuing underlying problems that cause the world to leap from one financial crises to another. Importantly, you learn why all this money thrown at problems simply isn't working - but how it once did, and could again.

This should be considered a companion book of a trilogy to those wishing to learn from highly educated, directly-experienced and politically objective experts - those who have "been there, done that" - who reveal to us the inner workings of world politics and why it is so ineffective and counter-productive the way it is currently being managed. The other two are Prestowitz's "Globalization and "Rogue Nation: American Unilateralism and the Failure of Good Intentions" and Friedman's "The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-First Century." These independent, well-respected authors of their respective best-sellers present findings and analysis that convincingly dovetail with the others' works.

(For a fantastic and exciting supplemental read, John Perkins "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man" is an amazing tale from the ground floor of, in his words, the work of "an economic hit man.") Incredible as his story is, it also dovetails precisely with what these other authors - a Nobel prize winner, a counsellor to the Secretary of commerce and special economic envoy to Japan, and a New York Times journalist- have consistently and convincingly presented as the same story and delivered as a remarkably similar conclusion from their different perspectives.

It takes some temerity to add yet another to 35 existing reviews of this book! But I do have a rather different reading of it. Previous reviewers seem to have thought that it was either the cat's meow or just a venomous attack. I am somewhere in between. The book makes a number of excellent, telling points against IMF and World Bank policies and assumptions. It does this in the context of what is, indeed, a full-scale attack--no punches pulled. Stiglitz' alternatives are not always the most viable or well-considered, either. So, three or four stars for good critique, but nothing for balance or for coherent solutions.
What worries me more is Stiglitz' lack of attention to a couple of notorious facts about the WB and IMF. He mentions them and then goes on to other things. First, these agencies have routinely supported the most unspeakably brutal and murderous dictatorships: Marcos in the Philippines, Mobutu in Zaire (now Congo), Rios Montt in Guatemala, the thugs of Sudan, the military junta in Indonesia, and on and on. They continued to do this for years after it became general knowledge that these regimes were using the loans, and other aid, to line their pockets and to buy weapons to suppress their own people--and then they ran down their countries' health and education systems to pay back the loans. This wasn't economic theory at work and it wasn't ignorance. We still need a serious study of this. The notorious lack of accountability, stressed by Stiglitz, has to be remedied.
Second, the World Bank in particular, and now the WTO also, have routinely gone up against the environment--though they know perfectly well that everyone, and especially the poor in the Third World, depends on the environment for survival. A highly-placed World Bank researcher (necessarily unnamed here!) told me some time ago that the World Bank's own studies show that all their big-dam projects cost more than they produce in benefits. The costs are born by the poor (especially those displaced by the reservoirs). The benefits largely go to the rich. The WTO's policies on "free" trade are notorious; they tolerate without protest the enormous subsidies that First World governments give their farmers (as pointed out by Stiglitz) but they won't bend a millimetre to protect forests, fish, and wildlife that are vital to the survival of Third World poor. We need a much better study and account of all this.
Whatever is going on in the non-transparent boardrooms of these agencies, the effect has been to keep the Third World in its classic position: an impoverished supplier of raw materials to the First World. The worst thing about the WB-IMF-WTO policy mix is that it routinely leads to the sacrifice not only of the environment but also of long-term investments like education. Without an educated workforce, the Third World is doomed to permanent poverty and backwardness. Everybody knows this, but the policies go on.
I wish Stiglitz, or someone, would take all this on.

Joseph Stiglitz is very smart man (not because he won a Nobel Prize), and this books shows it. The book is a very extensive explanation of the social cost-benfits of globalization. Further, it shows why it has failed many times in the past. The two main culprits of the "demise" of globalization are (ironically enough) the two main organizations who are supposed to be in charge of development, poverty, welfare, and resciliency of the world's economy. It shows how technocrats and bureaucrats have dome much more damage than good in developing countries. Very good book, very important conclusions. We're in a very intertwined world, and now more than ever before we all need to be participatory in the ethical globalization movement.
Why not to give 5 stars?
*It did not contain the academic rigor I was expecting from such insightful economist.
*Some parts of certain chapters the conversation gets repetitious.

Professor Stiglitz largely obsesses here over his endless disdain for the IMF vs the World Bank. His editor should have reigned him in. There are good insights here between the endless rants if you have the time and patience. Jim S.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Critique and Questioning: Policy setting, Globalized, World Economy 24 de noviembre de 2013
Por Alicia Crumpton - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
I like Stiglitz - he always gets me to thinking! Per Stiglitz, "The [International Monetary Fund's] policies. . . the outworn presumption that markets, by themselves, lead to efficient outcomes, failed to allow for desirable government interventions in the market, measures which can guide economic growth and make everyone better off. . . . many of the disputes that I describe in the following pages is a matter of ideas, and conceptions of the role of the government that derive from those ideas" (p. xiii). Part of Stiglitz critique is his observation that IMF's "remedies failed as often, or even more often than they worked" (p. xiv).

This book is Stiglitz discussion of the world economic order particularly the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and the World Trade Organization and the effects of globalization. I read this book largely because economics is not my field of study and I wanted to learn more about the global economy, how it worked, and what some of the critique and questions might be about it. I found this book to be quite accessible, the explanations and discussion served to give me new 'ear' with which to listen to media commentary and reporting.
