Description

Researchers and policy-makers are looking at public policies to assess their economic and social impacts on individuals, families, communities, and nations. This book applies this new research on social capital and well-being to key issues facing individuals and governments in the age of globalization. John Helliwell examines how globalization has altered the scope and salience of nation-states. He deals with the implications for both domestic and international policies, emphasizing well-being as an explicit focus throughout. Whatever one thinks of globalization, he argues, there is ample scope for countries like Canada to not only retain their distinctive qualities but also to have independent national and international policies. Globalization and Well-Being is essential reading for all those trying to think their way through what is left for national policies today.

Contributor Notes

John F. Helliwell is a professor of economics at the University of British Columbia.

Editorial Reviews

Globalization and Well-Being is provocative, well written and thoughtful, as well as masterful in presentation – Helliwell does not waste a word or relevant thought.

— Donner Prize Jury Chairman

Helliwell exemplifies the best in academic scholarship.

— Books in Canada, Summer 2003

This book is stimulating, and the opening review of the literature on the importance of national borders for international trade is superb.
