Globalization is inevitable and inexorable -- but it's also magnifying the chasmbetween rich and poor. At home and abroad, new extremes of wealth anddeprivation are increasingly threatening the stability of the entire global system.The Globalization Gap reveals how globalization is spreading poverty, disease,and the disintegration of traditional cultures. A few "winners" are using theirwealth to buffer themselves against these radical transformations, writes Dr.Robert Isaak. But, in most places, the new wealth generated by globalization isnot trickling down. The result? More misery -- and political upheavals that willendanger us all. It doesn't have to be this way, says Isaak: we can gain thepromised benefits of globalization -- without the withering unfairness. Isaakpresents a realistic blueprint for sharing opportunity and creating sustainableinnovation everywhere, not just amongst the wealthy. Isaak shows how a newglobalization can give the poor a powerful stake, both here and abroad. In sodoing, he takes on the most crucial challenge of the 21st century: makingglobalization work for everyone. Isaak's ideas can lead towards a more stable,peaceful world, in which we can all build our futures -- rich and poor alike.
