Global Crises and Globalization

  • Ricardo F. CrespoEmail author
Part of the SpringerBriefs in Philosophy book series (BRIEFSPHILOSOPH)


To look at some international implications of the economy, this chapter discusses financial and economic crises before analyzing the complex phenomenon of globalization. Both topics are set against a backdrop that goes beyond strict economic considerations, as an adequate management of these social events requires an ample vision.
