Norberg refutes, systematically and thoroughly, the tenets of the anti-globalisation movement. Johan Norberg illustrates how free market policies, contrary to popular assumption, have brought about better health, greater wealth and less poverty across the globe. Hunger, infant mortality and inequality have diminished under capitalism and poor countries who have liberalised their economies have shown impressive results.
For people to prosper, our world needs more globalisation, not less.
In Defence of Global Capitalism quickly became a bestseller in Sweden and has since been translated into several languages.
