Emerging Frontiers in the Global Economy brings together authors from across the social sciences to address contemporary topics 1) that have come into being because of or 2) that have been substantially altered because of the changing contours of the global economy. While many of these subjects are relatively new—artificial intelligence, rise of economic nationalism, or the breakdown of multilateral institutions—other themes, such as poverty, property rights, development, and trade, take on new dimensions in light of the modern global economy.
While books in the series may be rooted in a home discipline, they are written accessibly for readers in other fields of study. The series provides an interdisciplinary venue for discussions about how our world has been transformed by the global economy, and how these immense changes will impact our future.
