Asia, Latin America and Africa in Global Economic History
The volume offers an in-depth overview of the phenomenon of globalization. Globalization is a process that increases overall wealth but determines winners and losers at the same time. It reduces poverty in an absolute sense but increases poverty in a relative sense. The socio-economic changes in the territories of the globe are examined, highlighting the factors that contributed to the consolidation of the current global system but also how the financial crisis of 2007-2008 and Covid-19 highlighted the need for new rules and institutions for the increasingly excluded from globalization.
