  • Countries Trade And Capital Market

    What is Globalization? (Part one of a four part series) Globalization is one of the most charged issues of the day. It is everywhere in public discourse - in TV sound bites and slogans on placards, in web-sites and learned journals, in parliaments, corporate boardrooms and labor meeting halls.

  • State Reaction To The Process Of Globalization
    202 words
    This paper seeks to compare the reactions of two states to the process of globalization: (1) Barbados and (2) Trinidad and Tobago. The major contention is that state reaction to the process of globalization is not necessarily in defense of the population who elect governments to office, but rather their response is dependent on the type of economic elites within the nation-state, and the extent to which the social formation allows national elites to couch their interest in nationalist terms. The...
  • Globalization Of Industry
    720 words
    In a debate of global economic practice, it is apparent that two main arguments develop. While some argue that our global economy is self-correcting and eventually all will balance out, others dispute that while some countries continue to climb the global economic ladder of success other less developed nations continue to sink and suffer from poverty, oppression, and economic failure. I personally believe the latter of the two. Such poverty stricken, economic plunders should be provided with som...

  • Similar Economic Treaties And Attempts At Integration
    1,365 words
    The European Union (EU) is by far the most advanced form of cooperation between independent sovereign countries today.
