Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I don’t expect this book to settle the debates over globalization: there is too much real uncertainty about the issue, and anyway there are too many people firmly committed to their views to be shaken by any argument or evidence. But perhaps Mr. De la Dehesa’s excellent book can lower the temperature and give us all a better sense of what this new global economy is really all about." Paul Krugman, from the Foreword to Winners and Losers in Globalization

"Guillermo Dehesa has written a splendid book that provides fresh and important perspectives. Read and enjoy.” Jagdish Bhagwati, author of In Defense of Globalization

“Globalization is a subject that stirs uncommonly strong emotions [and] those who try to make sense of it are often challenged on their credentials. But once in a while you get someone like Guillermo de la Dehesa – that is, someone whose knowledge and experience crosses the usual boundaries, who cannot be impeached on the usual grounds. In other words, he is someone whose motives you can trust, and whose breadth of knowledge and experience are rare in this or any other area.” Paul Krugman, from the Foreword to Winners and Losers in Globalization
