The vision of a global future spread through the world like wildfire in the 1990s - exhilarating for some, alarming for others, apparently inexorable for all. As free-market advocates would have it, "there is no alternative". This text tells a different story - that globalization is not inevitable, invincible or intrinsically good. The deregulated global economy has proved highly unstable. The pursuit of unending growth is unsustainable, and the social damage that free markets cause is provoking an international backlash. Jane Kelsey explores the impact of globalization on the New Zealand economy, where a deregulated global economy has proved highly unstable. Her account of foreign investment and free trade policies, the role of the transnationals and the challenges posed by global agreements and networks should open the eyes of readers.
