Book Review Abstract

Veronica Rappoport of Columbia University reviews "On the Brink of Deglobalization: An Alternative Perspective on the Causes of the World Trade Collapse" by Peter A. G. van Bergeijk. The EconLit Abstract of the reviewed work begins "Explores the breakdown of international trade and capital flows in 2008-09 and presents challenges to the mainstream narrative for the world trade collapse. Discusses setting the stage; moving from peak to trough; the trade finance confusion--tales of capital, finance, credit, and trade; the international value chain myth; whether protectionism is just around the corner; an alternative hypothesis--the forgotten role of trade uncertainty; and testing the theories.0 Van Bergeijk is Professor of International Economics/Macroeconomics with the International Institute of Social Studies at Erasmus University and the CERES Research School for Resource Studies for Development at Utrecht University. Index."
