Economics for Social Workers : Social Outcomes of Economic Globalization with Strategies for Community Action - 00 edition

Economics for Social Workers : Social Outcomes of Economic Globalization with Strategies for Community Action (ISBN10: 0830415351; ISBN13: 9780830415359)
ISBN13: 978-0830415359
ISBN10: 0830415351

Summary: In this timely and unique new book, Arline Prigoff teaches social work students and practitioners about the social consequences of economic development and trade policies, and what can be done to prevent further erosion of the quality of life in local communities as a result of economic globalization. It presents alternative strategies for community economic development and suggests vital roles for social work students and practitioners as facilitators and partners i
n projects and processes of community empowerment.

Benefits:
  • The book teaches social work students relevant economic principles such as basic features of market economies, key distinctions between competitive markets and those dominated by monopolies or a small group of transnational corporations, and the social consequences of market globalization and of economic development and trade policies. Strengthens the economic dimension of systems theory as it applies to social work.
  • Prigoff argues that economic interests largely determine the structures of oppression that underlie poverty, human despair, violence, and subsequent dependency in poor communities. Exposes the social consequences of market globalization and global trade policies, including the transfer of manufacturing and service jobs to regions with cheap labor, declining wages, and subsidies to corporations by communities seeking foreign investment.
  • The book examines economic theories that have been influential during various historical periods and explores several conflicting paradigms in the field of economics.
