Over the past two decades, the percentage of the world's population
living on less than a dollar a day has been cut in half. How much of
that improvement is because of—or in spite of—globalization? While
anti-globalization activists mount loud critiques and the media report
breathlessly on globalization's perils and promises, economists have
largely remained silent, in part because of an entrenched
institutional divide between those who study poverty and those who
study trade and finance.

Globalization and Poverty bridges that gap, bringing together experts
on both international trade and poverty to provide a detailed view of
the effects of globalization on the poor in developing nations,
answering such questions as: Do lower import tariffs improve the lives
of the poor? Has increased financial integration led to more or less
poverty? How have the poor fared during various currency crises? Does
food aid hurt or help the poor?
Poverty, the contributors show here, has been used as a popular and
convenient catchphrase by parties on both sides of the globalization
debate to further their respective arguments. Globalization and
Poverty provides the more nuanced understanding necessary to move that
debate beyond the slogans.
