Summary: In City of Gold, David A. Westbrook argues that economic globalization has produced a "City of Gold": a global, cosmopolitan polity constituted by markets, and where capital markets -- not states -- have become the dominant mode of governance. But there are troubling consequences from using markets as the primary political mechanism. Traditional politics have been undermined and an inadequate economic logic rules.
