Chapter Summary

This chapter examines four of the eight "clusters" of criticisms directed at the global economic organizations (GEOs). These first four focus mainly on issues of "policies and operations". The chapter first looks at the criticisms under the rubric of (1) "bad policies, projects, and performance" and (2) distributional and social injustice. Then, it turns to the environmental criticisms. Next, the chapter focuses on another criticism that is leveled against the World Trade Organization (WTO). This criticism focuses on sovereignty. This criticism has generated a great deal of commentary, perhaps as much as any other criticism leveled at the WTO.

Keywords:distributional fairness; environmental criticisms; global economic organizations (GEOs); social injustice; sovereignty; World Trade Organization (WTO)
