Item description for Los felices 90: La semilla de la destruccion (The Roaring Nineties: A New History of the World's Most Prosperous Decade) (Spanish Edition) by Joseph E. Stiglitz...

How one of the greatest economic expansions in history sowed the seeds of its own collapse. In the 1990s, yes, jobs were created, technology prospered, inflation fell, and poverty was reduced. But at the same time the foundation was laid for the economic problems we face today. This groundbreaking work by the Nobel Prize-winning economist argues that much of what we understood about the 90s' prosperity is wrong, that the theories that have been used to guide world leaders and anchor key business decisions were fundamentally outdated.

Description in Spanish: La dcada de los noventa marc el surgimiento de la nueva economa, caracterizada por unos incrementos de productividad que duplicaban o triplicaban lo conocido durante las dos dcadas precedentes. Pero los felices noventa se acabaron bien pronto, antes incluso de que Bill Clinton abandonara la Casa Blanca. La economa entr en recesin y los escndalos empresariales destronaron a los sumos sacerdotes del capitalismo: daba la impresin de que los directivos de algunas empresas estaban lucrando a expensas de sus accionistas y empleados. La globalizacin, que tan recientemente se haba saludado como el comienzo de un mundo nuevo, tambin pareca verse con malos ojos. La reunin de la Organizacin Mundial del Comercio celebrada en Seattle en 1999, que tena por fin ahondar en la apertura del mundo, acab en disturbios protagonizados por grupos preocupados por los efectos, a veces devastadores, que la globalizacin tiene sobre los ms pobres. Es necesario arrojar nueva luz sobre lo que ocurri esos aos, acentuando la necesidad de reinterpretarlos. Existe una pugna ideolgica entre quienes abogan por reducir al mnimo la intervencin del Estado en la economa y quienes sostienen que el Gobierno debe asumir un papel importante no slo para corregir las carencias y limitaciones del mercado, sino tambin para tender hacia un grado ms alto de justicia social. Stiglitz se cuenta entre los segundos, y en este libro pretende explicar por qu est convencido de que, aun cuando los mercados centralicen el xito de nuestra economa, si los dejamos operar solos no siempre funcionan como debieran.

Esta obra no se limita a reescribir la historia econmica de los noventa: es, en la misma medida, una historia del futuro, del punto en el que los pases desarrollados se encuentran en este momento y de hacia dnde deberan tender para que la economa mundial llegue a un curso ms justo y estable.
