Presented by two of the world’s most knowledgeable and recognized economists, Joseph E. Stiglitz and Bruce C. Greenwald, Globalization (Online): Strategies for Your Enterprise provides new, in-depth views that give you a true understanding of how globalization impacts us and our world at large.
Recent years have seen markedly closer integration of countries around the world, with increased flows of goods and services, capital, and knowledge. There are alternative views concerning globalization. One, reflected in the protest marches from Seattle to Genoa, argues that globalization has hurt the poor, has been bad for the environment, and is governed by undemocratic institutions operating behind closed doors, advancing corporate and financial interests of the more developed countries. The other argues that globalization is the only means by which developing countries will be able to grow and eradicate poverty. A third view presented here challenges widespread beliefs about globalization being an overwhelming, irresistible, undifferentiated force and presents some more thoughtful specific considerations and strategies.
This program will enhance your understanding of these alternative perspectives. It will analyze the underlying forces that have led to globalization, and identify its effects, particularly in developing countries – when and why it has had the adverse effects that its critics claim, and when and why it has had the positive effects that its proponents argue for. It will examine the need for international collective action, discuss the structure and conduct of international economic organizations, and assess the extent to which they are to be blamed for the failures of globalization or should take credit for its successes.
