Description:

The enemies of globalization--whether they denounce the exploitation of poor countries by rich ones or the imposition of Western values on traditional cultures--see the new world economy as forcing a system on people who do not want it. But the truth of the matter, writes Daniel Cohen in this provocative book, may be the reverse. Globalization, thanks to the speed of twenty-first-century communications, shows people a world of material prosperity that they dowant--a vivid world of promises that have yet to be fulfilled. For the most impoverished developing nations, globalization remains only an elusive image, a fleeting mirage. Never before, Cohen says, have the means of communication--the media--created such a global consciousness, and never have economic forces lagged so far behind expectations. For the poorest countries of the world, writes Cohen, the problem is not so much that they are exploited by globalization as that they are forgotten and excluded.
