The impact of rising global trade and investment remains one of the most controversial topics among academics, policymakers and the public in general. This book written by international economists Francisco L Rivera-Batiz and Luis A Rivera-Batiz offers a collection of articles outlining the diverse consequences of trade liberalization and the elimination of barriers to international capital flows. The co-editors present a rich discussion of the theoretical approaches and empirical evidence available in economics to analyze globalization and its effects on growth, poverty and income distribution. Specifically, the book chapters examine how economic integration influences technological change and growth, the effects on poverty, income distribution and economic development, the consequences of liberalizing foreign direct investment, the impact of capital flows on emerging markets, and the role played by public sector governance and policies on trade and investment liberalization. Overall, this volume adopts diverse scientific approaches in analyzing globalization and its consequences.
