Book Review: Making Globalization Work

Although Joseph Stiglitz’s book Making Globalization Work came out more than a year ago, I did not read the book until the past week.

Capital Has No Homeland

One phrase I have heard frequently from well-to-do Chinese business people is 钱无祖国. Roughly translated into English, this means that “capital has no homeland”; it largely goes wherever it can get the best return for its owners. The flip-side of this statement is that the nation-state, this political entity which has been so important for [...]
