The issue of globalization-its promises, and more often,
its shortcomings-commands worldwide attention. Recent events illuminate
the dark side of globalization and underscore the urgent need to
redesign its basic principles. The terrorist attacks on September 11,

social justice, and economic stability. The challenges are great; the
new globalization will require deep and difficult changes, as well as a
new politics that shifts power away from the elite. But the seeds have
already been planted and the new globalization is beginning to

Profit is an essential contribution to the most important debate of
our times, written in clear, straight-forward prose for everyone seeking
