1st December 2021

Financial Times lists Six Faces of Globalization: Who Wins, Who Loses and Why It Matters by Anthea Roberts and Nicolas Lamp in its Best Books of 2021: Economics.

Martin Wolf, the chief economics commentator at the Financial Times, selects Six Faces of Globalization as one of his must-read titles in economics. He describes it ‘an interesting and original book’ where the authors identify six narratives about economic globalization, showing that ‘there is not one truth, but rather many partial truths.’

As Wolf explains: ‘The authors distinguish six such narratives: the “establishment” narrative; the “left-wing populist” narrative; the “right-wing populist” narrative; the “corporate power” narrative; the “geoeconomic” narrative; and the “global threats” narrative. Their conclusion is that the best approach is to synthesise apparent opposites.’
