Overview

Some policymakers believe that globalization can help developing nations, but only if they follow a universal set of rules designed by organizations such as the World Bank and enforced by international investors and capital markets. Others oppose international regulations, arguing that developing nations do best when left alone. In One Economics, Many Recipes, leading economist Dani Rodrik argues that neither group has got it right. While economic globalization can be a boon for countries that are trying to dig out of poverty, success usually requires following policies that are tailored to local economic and political realities rather than obeying the dictates of the international globalization establishment. A definitive statement of Rodrik's original and influential perspective on economic growth and globalization, One Economics, Many Recipes shows how successful countries craft their own strategies-and what other countries can learn from them.
