An Economist Best Book of the Year A Financial Times Best Economics Book of the Year A Fast Company "7 Books Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella Says You Need To Lead Smarter" Selection The nature of globalization has changed but our thinking about globalization has not. The renowned economist Richard Baldwin argues that the New Globalization is driven by knowledge crossing borders, not just goods. This is why its impact is more sudden, more individual, more unpredictable, and more uncontrollable than before-all of which presents developed nations with unprecedented challenges as they struggle to maintain reliable growth and social cohesion. It is also the driving force behind what Baldwin calls "The Great Convergence," as Asian economies in particular catch up with the West. "In this brilliant book, Baldwin has succeeded in saying something both new and true about globalization." -Martin Wolf, Financial Times "A very powerful description of the newest phase of globalization." -Larry Summers, former Secretary of the U.S. Treasury "An essential book for understanding how modern trade works via global supply chains. An antidote to the protectionist nonsense being peddled by some politicians today." -The Economist

[An] excellent book...Baldwin's work seems likely to become a standard, perhaps indispensable, guide to understanding how globalization has got us here and where it is likely to take us next. There can be few more vital subjects today that will benefit from this sort of clear and comprehensive exposition.-- (11/24/2016) An essential book for understanding how modern trade works via global supply chains. An antidote to the protectionist nonsense being peddled by some politicians today.-- (04/25/2018) If the corrosive events of the [presidential election] in America are anything to go by, economist Richard Baldwin is absolutely, stunningly (yet unfortunately) correct. That said, this book does endeavor to change the way we think about globalization--rather than the future of humanity.-- (11/14/2016) In this brilliant book, Baldwin has succeeded in saying something both new and true about globalization.--Martin Wolf"Financial Times" (12/02/2016) In this congenial volume, [Baldwin] adroitly covers 200,000 years of human trading practices, deploying insights from archaeology, anthropology, climate science, economic history, political science, development studies and other disciplines as he goes. He takes us on a journey from the ancient world to the 21st century, and from the global North to the developing South, in order to set the scene for the past 25 years of globalization.-- (01/05/2017) In this deft treatise, economist Richard Baldwin argues that we are seeing a third wave [of economic globalization]...The first two waves of globalization were boons for all. The third, Baldwin argues, is working mainly to the advantage of intellectual-property owners in developed countries, and of emerging markets able to access productive global value chains.-- (08/03/2017) In this meaty treatise, Baldwin argues that we're in the process of a major shift in world economics and economic policy needs to be adjusted accordingly...Baldwin has put together an intriguing and compelling case.--Publishers Weekly (starred review) (09/16/2016) It's a very powerful description of the newest phase of globalization.--Larry Summers"Five Books" (02/20/2017) Many books deal with various features of globalization. Only Baldwin's deals with the logic of globalization. Globalization happens when the movement of goods, knowledge, and people is technologically possible and cheap enough to encompass the entire world. The first globalization was built on the movement of goods, the one we live today on the movement of knowledge and information, the next one will be built on the movement of people. It is a must-read for those who want to learn about the past and to peer into the future.--Branko Milanovic, City University of New York Offers a valuable summary of how we got to where we are now. It's a narrative that bears retelling.-- (04/21/2017) Sheds a bright light on the nature of trade in today's era--the 'second globalization' since the industrial revolution.--Martin Wolf"Financial Times" (11/23/2016) Shows how the global production system has moved from trade in goods and services to trade in information, with multinational corporations obsessively trying to prevent intellectual-property leaks to competitors. Baldwin's analysis has important implications for both the governance of global trade and domestic policymaking.-- (09/21/2018) The first part of this book offers a breathtaking overview of the four phases of globalization that Baldwin argues have taken place during the past 200,000 years.--G. John Ikenberry"Foreign Affairs" (01/01/2017) There is much in this book to ponder.--Tyler Cowen"Marginal Revolution" (11/24/2016) This important book should change the way we think about globalization. There have been two big globalization booms over the past two centuries. The first caused divergence between rich and poor nations while the second, since the 1970s, has caused convergence. With elegance, economist Rich
