Developing countries commonly adopt reforms to improve their governments yet they usually fail to produce more functional and effective governments. Andrews argues that reforms often fail to make governments better because they are introduced as signals to gain short-term support. These signals introduce unrealistic best practices that do not fit developing country contexts and are not considered relevant by implementing agents. The result is a set of new forms that do not function. However, there are realistic solutions emerging from institutional reforms in some developing countries. Lessons from these experiences suggest that reform limits, although challenging to adopt, can be overcome by focusing change on problem solving through an incremental process that involves multiple agents.

The scope and powers of international institutions--the United Nations, the Bretton Woods institutions, the World Trade Organization--continue to grow with globalization. If democratic values are still sought after, then their deficit at international level must be addressed. This book surveys the range of proposals on the table, with an emphasis on feasibility. It describes and evaluates a wide spectrum of democratic reform proposals for the UN, World Bank and IMF, the WTO and international judicial institutions. It explores innovative ideas for empowering global civil society; a Global Truth Commission; referenda and a World Parliament; a debt arbitration mechanism and global taxation.

"A damning denunciation of things as they are, and a platform for how we can do better."—Andrew Leonard, Salon Building on the international bestseller Globalization and Its Discontents, Joseph E. Stiglitz offers here an agenda of inventive solutions to our most pressing economic, social, and environmental challenges, with each proposal guided by the fundamental insight that economic globalization continues to outpace both the political structures and the moral sensitivity required to ensure a just and sustainable world. As economic interdependence continues to gather the peoples of the world into a single community, it brings with it the need to think and act globally. This trenchant, intellectually powerful, and inspiring book is an invaluable step in that process.
