“David Jacoby’s experience in international business and his insights into the politics and social realities of trade make this book credible and interesting. His assessment of the future role of multilateral trade institutions and regional trade agreements makes sense, and with proper negotiation and implementation, the “new multilateralism” that he outlines can create sustained and balanced economic growth.”

“This book skillfully ties together today’s headline economic and trade issues with complex political and social challenges. Jacoby’s analysis of today’s globalization puzzles leads to a clearly presented vision for a prosperous new trade paradigm that can drive sustained global growth. He demonstrates convincingly how investments in infrastructure, education and technology, combined with cost-effective health care and public policies can benefit knowledge-based economies in a global setting.”
