The book draws on Stiglitz's personal experience as chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers under Bill Clinton from and chief economist at the World Bank from During this period Stiglitz became disillusioned with the IMF and other international institutions, which he came to believe acted against the interests of impoverished developing countries. Behind the free market ideology there is a model, often attributed to Adam Smith , which argues that market forces—the profit motive —drive the economy to efficient outcomes as if by an invisible hand. One of the great achievements of modern economics is to show the sense in which, and the conditions under which, Smith's conclusion is correct. It turns out that these conditions are highly restrictive.

Globalization and Its Discontents is a book that offers readers everything that they want to know about globalization. It shows how what was meant to be a globally integrated economy that would benefit all the nations that were part of it, has actually turned out to be a highly criticized idea. All of the places where globalization has failed have voiced their feelings of discontentment, which have been steadily increasing in number too. This is what the book is about. The book refrains from taking an anti-globalization stand but instead chooses to highlight many reasons why globalization failed to live up to the expectations of people in certain parts of the world where globalization policies failed to bear fruit. All of the factors that brought about the failure of globalization have been described in detail. In the book, globalization is in itself not considered to be a bad idea as it brings the necessary funding to countries that are in severe want.
With Globalisation and its Discontents , economist and writer Joseph Stiglitz wrote a devastating critique of globalisation approach and its results. His work caused much discontent among those he attacked, as much for his argument as for his apparent self-righteousness. But while Stiglitz might be correct in noting the apparent rise in social and political conflict in the developing world, does he also help us understand the causes of these conflicts? Is his argumentative thrust correct in accusing the IMF of being responsible for the growing levels of conflict, or falls he instead short of the mark? In Globalisation and it Discontents , Joseph E. The term has existed for almost half a century, yet it still largely evades a universal definition.

The turn of the last century witnessed a spate of high profile protests, most visibly in at trade negotiations in Seattle, against global inequities perpetuated by unfettered corporate capitalism and vested interests. It is within this context that Joseph Stiglitz explored the failings of the international financial system towards developing countries in his book Globalization and Its Discontents. Prior to arriving at the World Bank, Stiglitz was recognised for his work on the asymmetry of information in markets, a theme that heavily informs his analysis of what went wrong during the rapid acceleration of economic globalisation. The first few chapters explore the provenance and development of the three aforementioned institutions. He identifies the s as a key window during which they evolved from their original Keynesian orientation towards a free market mantra championed by Western leaders such as British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and U. President Ronald Reagan. The problem with this approach, Stiglitz contends, is that too often it proposes a one size fits all remedy and fails to consider the often devastating short-term impact on troubled countries and their unique economic circumstances.
