Making Globalization Work, or Joe Stiglitz watch, part II

Joe Stiglitz’s new book claims the main problem is that "we" have not "managed" globalization very well.  It has benefited mainly the rich and not the poor.  Funny me, I thought the main problems were tyranny, dictators, corruption, and low-quality and weak governments.

On p.144 Stiglitz seems to defend Putin’s jailing of Khodorovsky; after all it did bring money back to the Russian people.

Here is one snitty but not altogether inappropriate review.  Here is a New York Times review.
