Show Summary Details


Explains the general character of the critical link between globalization and global public goods, in order to set the context for the specific analyses in the four main parts of the book, and to highlight the need for a proper theoretical basis to guide public policy‐making. Without such a basis, globalization will be shaped by disjointed political pressures and jurisdictions, which are likely to favour the emergence of public bads and hinder the development of public goods.
