Andrew Charlton is a businessman and economist from Australia who has served as a representative of his country as global conferences such as the G20 Leaders Summit and the United Nations Copenhagen Climate Conference. He was the Senior Economic Adviser to former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd; and now he works in the corporate offices of Wesfarmers, helping Cole’s department stores.
But before all of that, he had established himself as a writer with genuine ideas to help battle poverty and climate change while also pushing innovation and economic growth. Below is a short bio written by one of his publishers, Oxford University Press.
“How can the poorer countries of the world be helped to help themselves through freer, fairer trade? In this challenging and controversial book, Nobel prize-winning economist Joseph E. Stiglitz and his co-author Andrew Charlton put forward a radical new solution to the problems of world trade, a solution that restores balance to the trading relationships between the richest and the poorest countries.
Vividly written, highly topical, and packed with insightful analyses,”Fair Trade for All” is a must read for anyone interested in globalization and development in the Third World.”
