Rate this:
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.
