The Globalization Paradox
- Democracy and the Future of the World Economy
- By: Dani Rodrik
- Narrated by: Mark Whitten
- Length: 10 hrs and 58 mins
In this eloquent challenge to the reigning wisdom on globalization, Dani Rodrik reminds us of the importance of the nation-state, arguing forcefully that when the social arrangements of democracies inevitably clash with the international demands of globalization, national priorities should take precedence. Combining history with insight, humor with good-natured critique, Rodrik’s case for a customizable globalization supported by a light frame of international rules shows the way to a balanced prosperity as we confront today’s global challenges in trade, finance, and labor markets.
A remarkable perspective

Better late than never
A book challenging the status quo. Only if Democrats had read it. Unrestricted labor mobility is a tough ask whichever way you construct temp visas.
