How much of this resource should developed notions appropriate, and how much should be left for developing nations? Regarding the WTO, Singer asks whether the organization allows free trade to override all other values, and he assesses the evidence for and against the view that globalization helps the poor. In his consideration of human rights, the author asks to what extent we can develop global laws protecting human rights and what the criteria for intervention should be when these rights are violated.
Finally, Singer addresses the obligations of the world's rich nations to assist the poor nations. Read more Read less.

Page 1 of 1 Start over Page 1 of 1. Creating Capabilities. Martha C. Peter Singer. Helen Prejean. Brian Paltridge. Kwame Anthony Appiah. Editorial Reviews Review "Timely and thoughtful. With clarity and intellectual rigour, he examines the implications of a globalized economy, the role of the World Trade Organization, the need for universal standards of justice and democracy and how they might be applied, threats to the environment, and how we might make the world a better place for the billions who live in absolute poverty.http://andreas.dev3.develag.com/the-last-chronicle-of-barset.php
His practical suggestions are often confronting, but are invariably derived from pristine logic, and are delivered with wit and passion. Singer, as usual, avoids excessive reliance upon academic jargon, and carefully documents the economic and political background of the issues he examines. It is the most useful survey in print of the moral dimensions of globalization. In his view, the search for widely acceptable principles of global fairness is not simply an intellectual exercise but an imperative that even rich and powerful countries ignore at their peril.
Singer then looks for practical ethical principles in the thorny areas of global warming, trade, humanitarian intervention, and foreign aid. Singer does an exemplary job of presenting a strong utilitarian position on central ethical concerns of globalization. In so doing, he provides a wealth of analysis and insightful suggestions on global political reform. The questions Singer raises here and the policy arenas he applies them to—climate change, trade, humanitarian intervention, and foreign aid—are the very ones occupying what one hopes is increasingly thoughtful attention, by both citizens and political leaders in this country and beyond.
This consideration of the ethical dimensions of governance in a global context offers both laics and policymakers the information and the tools of inquiry needed to enter more fully into our roles as citizens of the one world we share. Clayton, The Quarterly Review of Biology. Singer makes an important contribution to the development of a planetary consciousness so needed in these times.
His clear and elegant style makes the work accessible to philosophers and students alike. One student commented to me that this was 'the best book she read in college. His position is carefully developed, his tone is moderate, but his conclusions are radical and profound. No political theorist or moral philosopher, no public official or political activist, can afford to ignore his arguments.

When a leading ethicist like Singer addresses globalization, we all should listen very carefully. Getting states to behave ethically is a heroic aspiration, but this book will give even the most obdurate realist much to think about. See all Editorial Reviews. Not Enabled.
