The former Economist correspondent argues that globalization is neither a label for Americanization nor an excuse for worldwide corporate domination, nor does it eliminate local cultures or make governments irrelevant. Mr. Legrain's balanced evaluation analyzes the major forces in the economic equation and makes a clear case that we are free to choose our future and to shape globalization for the benefit of all. At last a good book on globalization...lucid and persuasive. --Financial Times
