« Making globalization work » - by Joseph Stiglitz[Reading report] by Romain Lhez

2008-05-02

The author was part of the "Alternative Management" third year program in HEC Paris in 2006/2007.

Stiglitz focuses on developing countries. But he considers that, in many ways, developed countries, and particularly the US, hold all of the cards by imposing globalization to developing countries. In his book, he deals with international trade, patents, natural resources, multinationals, debt and the international currency system. All these issues allow Northern countries to dominate developing countries. Stiglitz finally suggests for each issue a set of measures in order to make globalization profitable for everybody.
