Free market, neoclassical, and neoliberal are all essentially euphemisms for the disastrous laissez-faire economics of the late 19th century. This approach seeks to minimize the role of government—arguing that lower wages solve problems of unemployment, and relying upon trickle-down economics the belief that growth and wealth will trickle down to all segments of society to address poverty.
Stiglitz finds no evidence to support this belief, and considers the 'Washington Consensus' policy of free markets to be a blend of ideology and bad science. Without equal access to information between employer and employee, company and consumer, or in the IMF's case lender and debtor, there is no chance of "free" markets operating efficiently.
Stiglitz explains that globalization could be either success or failure, depending on its management. There is a success when it is managed by national government by embracing their characteristics of each individual country; however, there is a failure when it is managed by international institutions such as IMF.
Globalization is beneficial under the condition that the economic management operated by national government and the example is East Asian countries. Those countries especially South Korea and Taiwan were based on exports through which they were able to close technological, capital and knowledge gaps.
By managing national pace of change and speed of liberalization on their own, those countries were able to achieve economic growth. The countries who received the benefits from the globalization shared their profits equally.
However, Stiglitz believes that if the national economy regulated by international institutions there could be an adverse effect. Without government oversight, they reach decisions without public debate and resolve trade disputes involving "uncompetitive" or "onerous" environmental, labor, and capital laws in secret tribunals—without appeal to a nation's courts.
In East Asia's financial crisis, Russia's failed conversion to a market economy, failed development in sub-Saharan Africa, and financial meltdown in Argentina, Stiglitz argues that IMF policies contributed to a disaster: It failed to promote productive investment opportunities and demand for credit of quality; only well-planned loans, based on high quality economic and sector work, lead to improved design, effective implementation, and lower cost.
It is better to spend more time getting the program right than to lend prematurely. However, none of these were done. To evaluate his conclusion, it is instructive to look at those cases where Third World development actually succeeded: South Asia and China are the world's two greatest emerging markets.
According to Stiglitz, IMF interventions all followed a similar free market formula. The IMF strongly advocated "shock therapy" in a rush to market economies, without first establishing institutions to protect the public and local commerce.
Local social, political, and economic considerations were largely ignored. Privatization without land reform or strong competitive policies resulted in crony capitalismlarge businesses run by organized crime, and neo-feudalism without a middle class.This course offers you an innovative, disciplined and intellectually challenging framework for studying issues and perspectives within international relations.
You will consider various aspects of international order and politics, including the dynamics of international social and political power. The International Business Management MSc is made up of eight modules worth credits, the core modules, making up credits, are central to the programme and provide you with the knowledge and skills you need for a career in international management.
