Extract from the back cover
Even though it generally benefits the economy overall, globalisation penalises French citizens for whom the drop in prices does not compensate for the negative impact on wages. Lionel Fontagne decodes these mechanisms, which do not challenge globalization so much as the inability of public policies to distribute its benefits.
Increasing purchase power for all, loss of wages for some; global trade has an important impact on the social situation of individuals. Even though it generally benefits the economy overall, globalisation penalises French citizens for whom the drop in prices does not compensate for the negative impact on wages. On the one hand there are the winners of globalisation - who are younger, well-educated, well-paid, and urban - and other the other, there are those whose professional skills are difficult to reconvert and who live far from key areas of employment. Lionel Fontagne decodes these mechanisms, which do not challenge globalisation so much as the inability of public policies to distribute its benefits to those who are left behind.
