This innovative and accessible textbook addresses the key questions at the intersection of politics and economics in today's globalized world. Taking account of the evolving relations of power and wealth in the global political economy, the book provides a distinctive analysis of the way in which different actors respond to core contemporary issues. It emphasizes the importance of understanding how actors, such as states, non-government organizations and big business, exercise agency in the global political economy, and shows how they influence a wide range of issues, from tax and trade to financial crises and climate change. Encouraging a critical attitude throughout, each chapter ends with discussion questions and suggested reading to aid and inspire independent thinking.
