Добавить в корзину
There is no doubt that we live in a truly global economy. This unique resource covers a wide spectrum of concepts, people, and organizations related to economic globalization--from its origins in the quest for exotic spices in the 16th century to the debates and controversies that reflect it today. Volume 1 features over 150 entries, organized alphabetically, with definitions and descriptions, examples, photos, references, and exhibits featuring the most current data. Topical coverage includes such contemporary issues as offshore outsourcing, corporate social responsibility, child labor, and the digital divide. This volume also includes profiles of prominent economists, business leaders, and policymakers who have contributed to our understanding of globalization, as well as a timeline of major events and a glossary of key concepts and institutions. Volume 2 includes a wide array of primary documents, a "data bank" of world statistics on demographic and economic trends, and print and Internet resources for further research. Each document is introduced with an explanation of its context and linked to related articles in Volume 1. Cross-referenced throughout, featuring a comprehensive index, and cutting such disciplines as politics, sociology, and business, the Encyclopedia of the Global Economy will be an indispensable resource for students, teachers, businesspeople, and general readers interested in the dynamics of the global economy and its profound impact on nations, businesses, communities, and individuals.
