The Globalization Paradox By Dani Rodrik

From the mercantile monopolies of the 17th century empires to the modern-day authority of the WTO, IMF, & World Bank, the nations of the World have struggled to harness globalization's promise. In this eloquent challenge to the reigning wisdom on globalization, Dani Rodrik offers a new narrative, one that embraces an ineluctable tension: we cannot simultaneously pursue democracy, national self-determination, and economic globalization. When the social arrangements of democracies inevitably clash with the international demands of globalization, national priorities should take precedence. Combining history with insight, humor with good-natured critique, Rodrik's case for a customizable globalization supported by a light frame of int'l rules shows the way to a balanced prosperity as we confront today's global challenges in trade, finance, and labor markets. 2011,368 pp

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
