  • "As globalization continues apace, lines of communications are shortening and the boundaries between nations are becoming increasingly blurred. We rarely view things now solely from the point of view of our country of residence and instead adopt a global perspective on an increasing range of issues. This is particularly true in economics - the global economy has some of the characteristics of an interlinking jigsaw and no single nation can truly exist in isolation." "The tendency of most textbooks in international economics is to look at the world economy from the point of view of one country. The second edition of Horst Siebert's The World Economy rebels against this tendency and treats the world as a single entity. The key issues that have affected the world trade system since the turn of the millennium are thus very much to the fore."
  • "This book should be equally essential to those studying the world economy from the perspective of economics, finance and business. It includes a massive range of up-to-the-minute data in the form of tables, figures, graphs and pie charts and, as well as fulfilling the role of a textbook, should provide a valuable reference guide."--BOOK JACKET
