Joseph Stiglitz, a Nobel Laureate in economics, has been a first-hand witness of the devastating effect that globalization can have on the poorest countries of the planet. In this work he maintains that globalization can be a beneficial aspect and that its potential is the enrichment of everyone. He states that governments can and must adopt policies that support the growth of countries in an equal manner, and must fulfill equitable and fair rules that take care of the poor as well as the powerful.
