Abstract
 
Description
An eye-opening, at-a-glance guide to the myths and realities of the international economy. Highly illustrated with charts, graphs, and political cartoons, The Field Guide to the Global Economy makes the international economy comprehensible for everyone and reveals the harmful effects of corporate-driven globalization. Published in conjunction with the Institute of Policy Studies, a Washington, D.C., independent center for research and education, this guide describes how the global flow of goods and services, money, and people affects communities, workers, the poor, and the environment. Accessible and engaging, The Field Guide to the Global Economy covers what's new about the global economy and who is driving globalization. It also offers an extensive survey of the efforts of workers, shareholders, voters, consumers, students, and artists around the world who are responding to the negative impacts of globalization. The latest in The New Press's highly successful popular guides to economics including The New Field Guide to the U.S. Economy, War on the Poor, and Social Stratification, The Field Guide to the Global Economy will appeal to everyone puzzling over the structure and meaning of the international economy. - from Amzon
