about this book

Are job losses and the degradation of working conditions due to globalization and the offshoring of jobs? Contrary to popular beliefs and fears, all economic analysis - including the broader picture of the internationalisation of employment - show that this not the case. However, what is at stake for those displaced is not the probable positive overall global and long-term impact but the real local and immediate negative impact. The proceedings of the third Annecy conference consider this paradox: globalisation has usually enhanced the well being of countries that have participated and globally reduced poverty, but it looks more and more like a monster that devours jobs, because there a few mechanisms that compensate its losers. The book examines the trends in the internationalisation of employment, looks at losers and winners and proposes new policies of compensation. The latter are based on rights and international labour standards and on a new effort to build an effective employment adjustment system that accompanies globalisation and makes it fairer.
