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.

This book is necessary and important for its critical insight of powerful institutions, governments and players. Having lived in Latin America for many years, I've experienced first hand the consequences of disastrous policies. ( )

En esta obra sostiene que la globalización puede ser una fuerza benéfica que enriquezca a todos, especialmente a los mas necesitados, pero siempre y cuando nos replanteemos el modo en que ha sido gestionada. El proceso orientado por el FMI y las organizaciones internacionales ha causado un sufrimiento excesivo a los países en desarrollo. ( )

Maldita globalização que é resultado de um processo de enxugamento do território e das comunidades, logo do trabalho e das pessoas.

O resultado? um nevoeiro de capital que circula pelo mundo, corroendo valor e saltando para o próximo local, sempre deixando menos do que o que ofereceu.

Em particular, a sustentabilidade nas suas três dimensões, sai afetada e torna mais desigual os processos económico, ambiental e social - criando muitas vezes desiquilíbrios que resultam do enfraquecimento dos Estados.

Um dos primeiros grandes críticos da globalização e da inevitabilidade.
Uma leitura obrigatória para todos os que atacam ou defendem este fenómeno dos nossos dias que arrisca ser o disparo para grande parte das transformações que vivemos (digitais ou não) ( )

I have long wanted to understand how the World Bank and the IMF work. This book gives an excellent description from an ex-Chief Economist at the World Bank. Joseph Stiglitz cannot be dismissed as some wild left-wing trouble maker and, although he has been accused of using the book as a settling scores, there is not to be found in the text. The book gives an over-view of the system and is written in a style that is readily comprehensible by someone with little or no understanding of fiscal matters (ME!)

After a potted history of these entities, the book concentrates upon interventions which were made during the period that the author was involved. It clearly shows that the financial assistance given to the smaller countries by the IMF came with strings which hampered, rather than assisted their path to Capitalist heaven. Mr Stiglitz still believes in Globalisation and, when the evidence against the banking system becomes incontrovertible, he suggests methods to correct these structures. This, to me, is the weakest part of the book: he seems to believe that, at government level, there is a real desire to bring countries into the bosom of healthy capitalism and he appears unwilling to consider that, whilst throwing crumbs to struggling economies, a pool of desperate labour, willing to work for a pittance, and often in unsafe conditions, is pure gold to today's TNC's, who have government in a strangle hold.

Globalization and its Discontents is a concise, devastating, and relentless indictment of the global economic policies of the International Monetary Fund, World Trade Organization, and World Bank. Stiglitz singles out the IMF for most of the blame: flawed economic theories, lack of transparency and accountability to the public, and the pursuit of special corporate interests.
