The paper discusses the arguments for and against globalization. It shows that opponents for globalization are not against globalization itself - rather, the opposition is against threats to the environment, degradation of the poor and other ills that globalization may bring. It shows on the other hand activists for globalization who cite that globalization is necessary to push developing countries into the 21st century; offering much needed jobs and economic stimulation. The paper discusses how the case for global governance remains split between those who do not want to relinquish their constitutional rights and those who believe that global governance is necessary in this day and age.
From the Paper:"At an Economic Forum in Australia in 2000 Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft and multi millionaire expressed his agreement with globalization. Mr. Gates points out that living standards have gone up and poorer countries are now able to buy the necessities such as medicine. Mr. Gates also adds that if globalization is hindered the biggest losers will be the deprived citizens of the world. Even though Mr. Gates offers no qualifying data to support his opinion, the International Monetary Fund reported that social standards around the world has increased as United Nations Human Development Indicators divulge."
