In this book, ECLAC (Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean) draws upon the Latin American and Caribbean region’s experience in order to formulate a historical and multidimensional assessment of the globalization process from the perspectives of developing countries. In view of the glaring contrast between increasingly global problems and the incomplete, asymmetrical nature of the international agenda for dealing with them, developing countries need to adopt a proactive agenda that will enable them to seize the opportunities and avert the risks of globalization. Globalization and Development offers up a series of principles and an agenda for achieving just that aim. “This book provides a profound analysis of key problems facing the global economic order. Equally important, the agenda put forward provides perceptive food for thought for all who are committed to overcoming the fundamental asymmetries that pervade the world economy today. It recognizes that success in creating a better global order must go beyond the topics that have been at the center of discussion in the past: There must be an adequate supply of global public goods, and we need to incorporate at the global level values that we often taken for granted at the national level--a commitment to global democracy, global citizenship, and global social justice.” Joseph Stiglitz, Professor, Columbia University, and Winner of the 2001 Nobel Prize in Economics
