Volume III: Aftermath. A New Global Economic Order?

The global financial crisis showed deep problems with mainstream economic predictions, as well as the vulnerability of the world’s richest countries and the enormous potential of some poorer ones. China, India, Brazil, and other counties are growing faster than Europe or America and have weathered the crisis better. Is their growth due to following conventional economic guidelines or to strong state leadership and sometimes protectionism? These issues are basic to the question of which countries will grow in comind decades, as well as the likely conflicts over global trade policy, currency standards, and economic cooperation.

Contributors include: Ha-Joon Chang, Piotr Dutkiewicz, Alexis Habiyaremye, James K. Galbraith, Grzegorz Gorzelak, Jomo Kwame Sundaram, Manuel Montes, Vladimir Popov, Felice Noelle Rodriguez, Dani Rodrik, Saskia Sassen, Luc Soete, and R. Bin Wong.

Aftermath is the third part of a trilogy comprised of the first three books in the Possible Future series.

REVIEWS FROM NYU Press web-site:
  • “Few issues facing today’s world are as important as understanding the new global economic crises—in their unity and plurality. This penetrating collection of essays on the global economic crises of our times throws light into a dark tunnel and enables us to understand better the world we live in and how it needs to be transformed.”

    —Seyla Benhabib, Another Cosmopolitanism

  • “Remarkable in its geographic reach and analytical reach, this book offers timely food for thought to social scientists and policy makers interested in explaining the relative success and decline of societies in the age of neoliberalism.”

    —Michele Lamont, author of How Professors Think: Inside the Curious World of Academic Judgment

  • “Who won and who lost in the global economic crisis that has dominated the news in the last two years? Aftermathprovides surprising and much-needed critical analyses of this question. Supposedly robust, rich democracies have floundered badly, while the growth rates of many developing nations — from Brazil to Turkey — have been impressive. Distinguished economists, sociologists, and political scientists take to this crucial task with insight based on new empirical investigations that should be read by anyone who wants to understand where we are headed in the future.”

    —Katherine S. Newman, author of The Accordion Family: Globalization Reshapes the Private World
