Joel Spring investigates the role of educational policy in the evolving global economy, and the consequences of school systems around the world adapting to meet the needs of international corporations. The new global model for education addresses problems of technological change, the quick exchange of capital, and free markets; policies to resolve these problems include "lifelong learning," "learning societies," international and national accreditation of work skills; international and national standards and tests; school choice; multiculturalism; and economic nationalism. The distinctive contribution Spring makes is to offer an original interpretive framework for examining and understanding the interconnections among education, imperialism and colonialism, and the rise of the global economy. He offers a unique comparison of the educational policies of the World Bank, the United Nations, the European Union, and the Organization for Economic Development and Cooperation. Additionally, he provides and weaves together important historical and current information on education in the context of the expansion of international capitalism; much of this information, gathered from many diverse sources, is otherwise not easily available to readers of this book. In the concluding chapters of the volume, Spring presents a thoughtful analysis and a powerful argument emphasizing the importance of human rights education in a global economy. This volume is a sequel to Spring's earlier book, Education and the Rise of the Corporate State (1972), continuing the work he has been engaged in since the 1970s to describe and analyze the relationship between political, economic, and historical forces and educational policy.

Gambling Debt is a game-changing contribution to the discussion of economic crises and neoliberal financial systems and strategies. Iceland’s 2008 financial collapse was the first case in a series of meltdowns, a warning of danger in the global order. This full-scale anthropology of financialization and the economic crisis broadly discusses this momentous bubble and burst and places it in theoretical, anthropological, and global historical context through descriptions of the complex developments leading to it and the larger social and cultural implications and consequences. Chapters from anthropologists, sociologists, historians, economists, and key local participants focus on the neoliberal policies—mainly the privatization of banks and fishery resources—that concentrated wealth among a select few, skewed the distribution of capital in a way that Iceland had never experienced before, and plunged the country into a full-scale economic crisis. Gambling Debt significantly raises the level of understanding and debate on the issues relevant to financial crises, painting a portrait of the meltdown from many points of view—from bankers to schoolchildren, from fishers in coastal villages to the urban poor and immigrants, and from artists to philosophers and other intellectuals. This book is for anyone interested in financial troubles and neoliberal politics as well as students and scholars of anthropology, sociology, economics, philosophy, political science, business, and ethics.

Andre Gunder Frank asks us to ReOrient our views away from Eurocentrism—to see the rise of the West as a mere blip in what was, and is again becoming, an Asia-centered world. In a bold challenge to received historiography and social theory he turns on its head the world according to Marx, Weber, and other theorists, including Polanyi, Rostow, Braudel, and Wallerstein. Frank explains the Rise of the West in world economic and demographic terms that relate it in a single historical sweep to the decline of the East around 1800. European states, he says, used the silver extracted from the American colonies to buy entry into an expanding Asian market that already flourished in the global economy. Resorting to import substitution and export promotion in the world market, they became Newly Industrializing Economies and tipped the global economic balance to the West. That is precisely what East Asia is doing today, Frank points out, to recover its traditional dominance. As a result, the "center" of the world economy is once again moving to the "Middle Kingdom" of China. Anyone interested in Asia, in world systems and world economic and social history, in international relations, and in comparative area studies, will have to take into account Frank's exciting reassessment of our global economic past and future.

This updated book (6th edition published in December 2017) examines how the BRICS countries of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa have emerged as potentially potent forces in the global economy, and the reasons behind their economic rise. Yet, although they share certain advantages, they possess different strengths. China has become a dominant global supplier of manufactured goods, while India has emerged as a key global provider of services. Brazil and Russia have become major global exporters of raw materials, resources that China and India require for their industrialisation. South Africa has a diversified economy, and is regarded as a low-risk destination for investment in Africa.The emergence of the BRICS could signal a shift in economic and political power away from the advanced economies of the West. A close 'alliance' between the BRICS countries is becoming a reality, and could further increase their geopolitical stature, leading to significant changes in the current world order. However, China is the real power in the BRICS group, and rivalry with the other BRICS, due to their overlapping spheres of influence, may create future tensions that prevent the emergence of a new powerful grouping.In addition, despite the balance of global economic power shifting towards the BRICS since the turn of the century, there remain doubts over the sustainability of their economic policies. Weak global demand for commodities in recent years has contributed to stalled economies in Brazil, Russia and South Africa, while unprecedented investment levels in China have led to concerns over its rising public and private debt. India's rapidly growing population and considerable rural poverty are problematic for its future development. Therefore, the book looks at the different set of obstacles faced by each of the BRICS countries, and the challenges that may thwart their individual global ambitions, as well as the ability of the BRICS group to take centre stage in tomorrow's global economy.This book includes content from the book titles - 'The Rise (& Fall) of Brazil in the Global Economy', 'The Rise (& Fall) of Russia in the Global Economy', 'The Rise of India in the Global Economy' and 'The Rise of China in the Global Economy' - in addition to dedicated content on the BRICS group. Numerous discussion questions and multiple-choice review questions are included, along with graphs and photos, to create a more interactive and educational experience for the reader. It will be of relevance to teachers, students, and anyone else with an interest in the emergence of the BRICS countries and the globalisation of the world economy.

"Magisterial history...one of the most comprehensive histories of modern capitalism yet written." —Michael Hirsh, New York Times Book Review In 1900 international trade reached unprecedented levels and the world's economies were more open to one another than ever before. Then as now, many people considered globalization to be inevitable and irreversible. Yet the entire edifice collapsed in a few months in 1914. Globalization is a choice, not a fact. It is a result of policy decisions and the politics that shape them. Jeffry A. Frieden's insightful history explores the golden age of globalization during the early years of the century, its swift collapse in the crises of 1914-45, the divisions of the Cold War world, and the turn again toward global integration at the end of the century. His history is full of character and event, as entertaining as it is enlightening.

Stealth Of Nations

Stealth of Nations is an eye-opening account of the informal economy, and explains the unwritten rules that govern unregulated markets around the globe. Whether it's Nigerians selling Chinese cell phones back home in Lagos, or laid-off San Franiscans using Twitter to sell home-cooked foods, the denizens of this world are mostly entrepreneurs trying to find a way to scratch out a living. Neuwirth brings this shadowy world to life and challenges conventional wisdom about these informal industries-which he calls System D, an African slang phrase for the world of self-made entrepreneurs who make it without any government assistance. He traces its history and shows how it provides essential services and crucial employment that fills the gaps left by more formal systems. Neuwirth also captures the global reach of System D, where Guangzhou has a neighborhood that is almost entirely African (which the Chinese cabbies call "Chocolate City") and Nigerian fishmongers get their supplies from Europe, not local waters. Above all, he argues that this world is far more systematic than one would think: what looks like a chaotic market in pirated goods is often a well-oiled machine that relies on codes and unwritten rules to continue functioning.
