The book addresses how to adjust the concept of public goods to today’s economic and political realities. It examines managerial and political challenges to the design and implementation of global public goods provision. Suggestions are presented on a number of policy reforms and recommendations are made on how to move in a more feasible and systematic way towards a fairer process of globalisation that works in the interests of all. Contents include governance of the IMF and the multilateral trade regime. An electronic discussion on water as a public good has been started as part of the follow up.
Review maintains inadequate and inconsistent approach to economic and gender inequality, as well as climate change.
