Examines how states, institutions, policy choices, and social forces shape—and are influenced by—the global economy and the world polity. Draws on historical patterns and empirical evidence of societal behavior to evaluate the evolution of global development policy over time and across space. Uses country illustrations and case studies to demonstrate how examining development policy trade-offs can provide guidance for formulating sustainable development policies at the global level. Focuses on global governance and how decisions about global rules related to industrial policy, foreign investment policy, and climate change policy are made at the level of several international institutions.
