Summary
"The globalization gap reveals how globalization is spreading poverty, disease, and the disintegration of traditional cultures. A few "winners" are using their wealth to buffer themselves against these radical transformations. But, in most places, the new wealth generated by globalization is not trickling down. The result? More misery - and political upheavals that will endanger us all." "Isaak presents a realistic blueprint for sharing opportunity and crating sustainable innovation everywhere - not just amongst the wealthy. In so doing, he takes on the most crucial challenge of the 21st century: making globalization work for everyone."--Jacket
