Globalization is one of the most charged political battlegrounds of our age. Its advocates say it is an engine for universal prosperity, while its critics see it as a race to the bottom for poor people and poor countries. Worlds Apart casts polemics aside and fairly and respectfully interprets both sets of arguments. While not a search for a middle ground, it unashamedly emphasizes the injustices of widening inequalities and stacked odds in world trade and finance.
Clark argues that civil society faces a distinct opportunity to drive global change in an ethical direction. He argues that the search for a more humane management of global affairs should ultimately focus on promoting growth, inclusion, and narrowing the socioeconomic gap across states and peoples.
