Never before have we stood to gain or lose as much from understanding the international economy. Scandals plague the world's largest corporations, the American trade deficit has soared to historic heights, and international organizations from the World Bank to the WTO are accused of being inefficient and corrupt. Is our global economy as unhealthy, and as unjust, as we think? And what can be done about it?

At this critical juncture, George Soros, a major proponent of globalization, takes to task the many institutions that have failed to keep pace with our global economy. At the same time, he offers a compelling new paradigm to bring the institutions and the economy back into necessary alignment. Economics are amoral, he argues - but neither our society nor our economy can afford to function without a distinct system of right and wrong. As we look toward the future and wonder what's ailing our economy, where our jobs are going, and whether the power of economics can be harnessed for positive changes, this thoroughly updated edition of George Soros on Globalization is a report no citizen of the world can do without.

Soros has been in the news and in hearings this year. How ethical he may be I don't know but he is giving attention to countries in need. His suggestion that we should have provided pensions for Russia at the end of the Cold War is interesting. His idea of using the IMF as a means of distributihng aid to countries rather than by NGOs is the heart of this book.Every country would participate with essentially international currancey.Clearly a book with a purpose to convince. I think my copy was sent to a newspaper for review with an enclosed card. However, it is short and should be included in any discussion of changes in world aidread more
