This authoritative Handbook provides a thorough account and analysis of the important issues relating to the globalization of the international economy. The increasing interdependence of the world's economies has caused a breakdown in national economic boundaries and a freer access to goods, services and labour. This comprehensive book, written by experts in the field, addresses major issues associated with this international economic integration. This reference work considers: * global growth including inequality, saving, foreign direct investment, external debt and multinational corporations * regionalization and globalization of trade such as the role of international institutions, external economies of scale and trading blocs * transition to market economies in Central and Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union and East Asia * internationalization and integration of markets including the financial, capital, labour and agricultural markets * global environmental and resource problems including transboundary pollution, the implication of North-South trade for natural resource depletion and environmental degradation, and the impact of energy markets on global growth, pollution and economic stability.
