Consumption, Globalization and Development
Jeffrey JamesISBN: 0312230567;
This volume is concerned with the complexities of the relationship between globalization and different groups of consumers in developing countries. Globalization, it is argued, can yield frustration and disappointment as well as welfare gains for consumers; it may, but does not necessarily, displace local products and via the rapid recent expansion of the mass media, it offers policymakers new opportunities to deal with acute social problems.
