"Although Mr. Bhagwati may be best known as a proponent of open trade, this volume will enhance his reputation as a proponent of open societies, in which free markets exist in a context of free human beings. . . . Anyone who reads this engaging description of the ways the world works will emerge a lot less confused and at least a little more optimistic." -- Adrian Karatnycky, Wall Street Journal Winner of the 1998 Eccles Prize for Excellence in Economic Writing A Stream of Windows offers a selection of Jagdish Bhagwati's recent policy writings, in which he forcefully opposes the demonization of Japan, challenges the bipartisan bashing of illegal immigrants, refutes the conventional view that democracy hinders development, andmuch more.
