Kevin Gallagher’s New Book on Trade and Development Policy
Kevin Gallagher’s new book, “The Clash of Globalizations: Essays on the Political Economy of Trade and Development Policy,” (2013) brings together a series of essays on political economy of trade and development policies. The book explores the factors that have led to twenty-first-century trade politics being characterized as a “clash of globalizations.”
“This is a ‘big picture’ book about the world economy, rooted in a detailed study of the institutions and norms that affect cross-border transactions, especially those of developing countries. Put it on your reading list if you are interested in the governance of the world economy, and also if you are interested in reforming the teaching of economics away from the current curriculum dominated by mathematical technique and towards topics from institutional economics, political science and sociology.” —Robert H. Wade, Professor of Political Economy, London School of Economics and Political Science
The book is published by Anthem Press.
