Global Governance: Ethics and Economics of the World Order
Meghnad Desai, Paul Redfern
A&C Black, Jan 1, 1995 - Business & Economics - 230 pages
This is the first volume arising from the work of the Centre for the Study of Global Governance, based at the London School of Economics. Governance in this context should not be confused with government; it is not the idea of one-world government which is being revived. Global governance as a concept and as a programme needs to be defined in the context of four pillars: post-mural; post-imperial; post-Keynesian; and post-industrial. The two political pillars - the post-mural and the post-imperial - define the constraints on the UN system. The two economic pillars run across the political, and are reconstituting the world in a way more radical than the political. This volume examines the ethical, ecological and economics issues emerging from the changing global order.
