Globalisation, FDI, Regional Integration and Sustainable Development: Theory, Evidence, and Policy
"This stimulating book comprehensively explores the theoretical and empirical literature inter-linking the aforementioned factors from the anti-globalization activists' viewpoint, and from the pro-globalization proponents' perspective. It proposes policies that individual countries should pursue, based on the recognition that globalization generates both positive and negative effects. These comprise policies required to maximise the economic benefits globalization may generate, and those that aim to eliminate or at least minimise the negative development-oriented effects globalization may engender and, hence, to propel sustainable development". --Back cover.
