Economic Globalisation

In this title, international contributors, from both developing and higher income countries, identify and discuss major social conflicts, labour and distributional concerns, environmental issues and impacts arising from the very rapid increase in globalization experienced since the early 1970s. Issues considered include possible alternatives to globalization; cultural and linguistic inequalities associated with globalization, onsequences of growing regionalism and economic inequality between and within nations. Poverty, international migration, biodiversity conservation, natural resource sustainability, and global trade in genetically modified organisms (GMO) are all discussed. A substantial introductory chapter provides a significant overview of the rate and process of economic globalization and integrates the contributions and their interconnections for the reader. "Economic Globalization" offers policy proposals and responses and represents divergent views and rigorous theoretical analysis.
