Description

The multitude of complex problems that faces the world today is underlain by the major issues of political economy which Adam Swift explores. Environmental decay, population explosion, the arms race deepening poverty in the Third World, growing unworkability in the world's economic frame and the rise of nationalist sentiment, are all bound up with the spheres of economy and government. Using comparative studies of politico-economic frameworks and performance, Adam Swift attempts to show that no system is immune from creating the problems which plague the global community, but that economic responsiveness and political accountability can provide the basis for an approach to sustainable development.show more
