Item description for Economic Globalization and Asia: Essays on Finance, Trade and Taxation by Ramkishen S. Rajan...
The term "economic globalization" has been discussed extensively in the popular press, by business executives and by policy-makers all over the world. While academic economists have made some excellent contributions to specific, technical aspects of economic globalization, there appears to be a need for economists to discuss the broader aspects of the issue in a more accessible manner. Failing this, the general debate will be informed only by the writings of non-economists.
That is the motivation for this book, which is a collection of essays on various aspects of economic globalization in general, but with specific reference to Asia.
