The Political Economy of Globalization brings together the latest analysis of renowned international scholars to describe the implications of globalization on political relations in the world economy. It shows clearly that globalization does not render governments impotent if they respond appropriately. Globalization does not prevent strong governments from maintaining a welfare state and good working conditions. What globalization does mean is that, to remain effective, governments have to cooperate to manage the flow of goods, money, people and problems across borders. No one state can regulate a global economy on its own. Yet, far from cooperating globally, governments tend to cling to national and regional policies, even where they hinder effective international institutions and management.
