About this book
A leading economist's radical look at the issues surrounding globalization, in particular the role of the wealthiest nations and economic organisations such as the IMF.
Argues that in theory the world's wealthiest countries and supra-national institutions like the IMF, World Bank and WTO want to see all nations developing into modern industrial societies. This book describes that in practice, though, those at the top are 'kicking away the ladder' to wealth that they themselves climbed.
