Overview

As a modern consumer, you can buy practically any product from anywhere in the world. Thanks to globalization, the entire world is interconnected as one giant marketplace. But what are the costs of this convenience?

Business Without Borders: Globalization looks at both the benefits and drawbacks of globalization, including its effect on workers, consumers, the environment, and cultures. It also examines the history of trade, and how marketplaces developed from being local to global. By explaining the issues behind globalization with straightforward language and examples, this book will help you understand the part you play in an increasingly global economy.

When the recent economic crisis began, many people found themselves wondering: "How did we get here?" The Global Marketplace makes sense of the recent crisis-and the global financial system more generally-by using a clear, engaging style to explore the fundamentals of investing, lending and borrowing, globalization, the economic cycle, and more. Special features include helpful charts and graphs and suggestions for further research, as well as real-life examples that help students to better understand their own role in the global marketplace.
