Although globalisation is as old as trade itself, it remains controversial. Does it boost development or worsen inequality? Does it generate employment or destroy jobs? Does it damage the environment or offer means to preserve it? Does it cause financial instability or make investment more efficient?

This book discusses these questions in relation to the recent crisis as well as the history of global economic integration. It examines how the accelerating interconnectedness of markets and national economies is affecting us all and assesses how globalisation is evolving in the light of recent events.
