Summary "This book examines global economic institutions critically. It presents an accessible, fluid history of globalization and explains how global public goods should be defined, how global economic institutions work, and it looks at the effect that major organizations such as the WTO, IMF, UNEP, etc., have on trade, finance, the environment, and so on. Students and academics interested in international business and economics will find this book a useful tool. Researchers, business consultants, policy-makers and so forth may yet come to see this volume as indispensable."--BOOK JACKET
