It examines the many controversies relating to long-run growth and development, problems of transitions from socialism to capitalism, international competitiveness and the impacts of globalisation. The contained chapters in this Book are contributed by prominent researchers. The broad effects of globalisation on different aspects of life grab a great deal of attention over the past three decades. As countries, especially developing countries are speeding up their openness in recent years the concern about globalisation and its different effects on economic growth, poverty, inequality, environment and cultural dominance are increased. An important dimension of the globalisation process -but certainly not one of the main focuses of attention in discussions on the subject- is the gradual spread of ideas and values with regard to civil and political rights, on the one hand, and economic, social and cultural rights, on the other.
