Global Liberalism and Its Casualties

Jean Kachiga

This work examines the premise of liberal economic principles and their promise of distributive advantages to all free market participants. Professor Jean Kachiga's critique is substantiated by the lack of empirical evidence supporting the premise and promise of liberal economics to ill-equipped and ill-prepared market participants. His analysis deplores the increased marginalization of many nations in the developing world and their unsettling social, political, and economic realities, exacerbated by the rapid pace of international economic processes. In addition, Professor Kachiga brings to the fore an analysis of the nature of international free trade and questions the role of international political regimes that affect the distributive outcome of international trade. « less more »
