The last several years of worldwide economic crisis have blasted livelihoods, inspired protests, toppled governments-and highlighted profound moral concerns surrounding globalization. In this blend of economics, moral philosophy, history, and politics, Steven R. Weisman analyzes a range of economic issues-from free trade to capital flows, bailouts, inequality, and immigration-to reach a new understanding of moral priorities in the modern market economy. 

The Great Tradeoff skillfully and elegantly guides the reader through the concepts of liberty, justice, virtue, and loyalty to community, bringing fresh insights into who has benefited and who has been left behind by globalization.
