Review – Globalization and Its Discontents
Catherine's College Oxford ; Hon. Fellow Summary of scientific research I helped create a new branch of economics, "The Economics of Information", exploring the consequences of information asymmetries and pioneering such pivotal concepts as adverse selection and moral hazard, which have now become standard tools not only of theorists, but of policy analysts. I have made major contributions to macroeconomics and monetary theory, to development economics and trade theory, to public and corporate finance, to the theories of industrial organization and rural organization, and to the theories of welfare economics and of income and wealth distribution. My work has helped explain the circumstances in which markets do not work well, and how selective government intervention can improve their performance.

Globalism and Its Discontents: Point/Counterpoint with Joseph Stiglitz ’64
The turn of the last century witnessed a spate of high profile protests, most visibly in at trade negotiations in Seattle, against global inequities perpetuated by unfettered corporate capitalism and vested interests. It is within this context that Joseph Stiglitz explored the failings of the international financial system towards developing countries in his book Globalization and Its Discontents. Prior to arriving at the World Bank, Stiglitz was recognised for his work on the asymmetry of information in markets, a theme that heavily informs his analysis of what went wrong during the rapid acceleration of economic globalisation.
Joseph E. Stiglitz
The book draws on Stiglitz's personal experience as chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers under Bill Clinton from and chief economist at the World Bank from During this period Stiglitz became disillusioned with the IMF and other international institutions, which he came to believe acted against the interests of impoverished developing countries. Behind the free market ideology there is a model, often attributed to Adam Smith , which argues that market forces—the profit motive —drive the economy to efficient outcomes as if by an invisible hand.
This book has already received wide attention. He shared the Nobel Prize in economics for his contributions to understanding the impact of asymmetric information on economic behavior and institutions. He served on President Clinton's Council of Economic Advisers, first as member, then as chairman, before moving in early to the World Bank as senior vice president and chief economist. Thus he had a ring—side seat among policy—makers during a significant decade which saw the completion of NAFTA and the Uruguay Round, the creation of the World Trade Organization, the transformation of former communist countries to market economies, rapid growth in the world's two most populous poor countries, and several serious financial crises. Stiglitz reminds his readers again and again that the ultimate purpose of economic policy should be security and prosperity for all—gainful employment, growth in income, adequate public services,especially health and education—that foster individual well-being and facilitate further growth.
