CEPR President, Richard Baldwin, publishes new book

Friday, November 18, 2016

CEPR President, Richard Baldwin, has published a new book entitled "The Great Convergence: Information Technology and the New Globalization"

“[Baldwin] offers a compelling framework for thinking about how trade is organized and why and how it benefits whom”

Diane Coyle, The Enlightened Economist

"When you fight tomorrow’s battles with yesterday’s weapons you lose. We deserve better thinking about the New Globalization according to top economist and trade policy expert Richard Baldwin.

The Great Convergence argues that the 20th century view of trade – goods that were made in one nation and sold in another – is deeply misleading in today’s world. Today trade is very much about know-how, ideas and factories crossing borders, not just goods and services crossing borders.

The Great Convergence will change the way you think about globalisation forever."
