The first journalism textbook for reporters who cover finance and economics in developing and transitional countries, Covering Globalization is an essential guide to the pressing topics of our times. Written by economists from the Asian Development Bank and the International Monetary Fund as well as journalists who have worked for Dow Jones, the Financial Times, the New York Times, Fortune, and Reuters―and with an introduction by Nobel Laureate Joseph E.

Each chapter explains the basic economic principles and current thinking on a given topic and provides

tips on what to look for when covering specific subjects;

a way to structure business and economics stories;

a way to use the Internet for reporting with links to more information online;
