This book critically examines global economic institutions. It presents an accessible fluid history of globalization and explains how global public goods should be defined and how global economic institutions work. It also looks at the effect that major organizations - including the WTO, IMF and UNEP - have on areas such as finance, the environment and transport. The beauty of Global Economic Institutions lies in its unique approach and the author's ability to explain complicated economic and political systems and terms with commendable clarity and style. Students and academics interested in international business and economics will find this book a useful tool. Researchers, business consultants and policy-makers may come to see this volume as indispensable.
Willem Molle is Professor at Erasmus University, Rotterdam, the Netherlands and is Chairman of the Board of Management of ECORYS Research and Consulting.
