Towards a Better Global Economy: Policy Implications for Citizens Worldwide in the 21st Century

By Dani Rodrik Published 2014

Oxford University Press has published Towards a Better Global Economy: Policy Implications for Citizens Worldwide in the 21st Century  (2014) by Dani Rodrik, Albert O. Hirschman Professor in the School of Social Science, Franklin Allen, Jere R. Behrman, Nancy Birdsall, Shahrokh Fardoust, Andrew Steer, and Arvind Subramanian. 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.
