Las edades de la globalización: geografía, tecnología e instituciones
Jeffrey D. Sachs. 2021
Hoy en día los problemas más urgentes son fundamentalmente globales. Por ello, si queremos asegurar el futuro del mundo a largo plazo, es necesario emprender una acción concertada a nivel mundial, porque, de hecho, la escala de la historia de la humanidad siempre ha sido global. En Las edades de la globalización, Jeffrey D. Sachs, reconocido economista y experto en desarrollo sostenible, recurre a la historia del mundo para explicar cómo podemos afrontar los desafíos y las oportunidades del siglo xxi. A través de 70.000 años de historia, relata cómo la interacción entre los humanos, la tecnología y la naturaleza ha conformado la globalización. Una historia, la de la globalización, que ha incluido gloriosos logros humanos, crueldades y daños autoinfligidos. Y ha evidenciado la enorme dificultad de progresar en las crisis, lo que nos permite identificar patrones que nos ayudan a entender nuestros dilemas actuales desde una perspectiva diferente.
The world for sale: money, power, and the traders who barter the earth's resources
Javier Blas y Jack Farchy. 2022
The World for Sale lifts the lid on one of the least scrutinized corners of the world economy: the billionaire commodity traders who buy, hoard, and sell the earth's resources. It is the story of how a handful of swashbuckling businessmen became indispensable cogs in global markets, enabling an enormous expansion in international trade and connecting resource-rich countries - no matter how corrupt or war-torn - with the world's financial centers. The result is an eye-opening tour through the wildest frontiers of the global economy, as well as a revelatory guide to how capitalism really works.

Raphaël Fèvre. 2021

However, after first emerging in Germany during interwar years, ordoliberalism is now at the center of the ongoing debates about the foundations, the present governance, and the future prospects of the European Union.
