The paper discusses the arguments in favor of and against globalization. The paper shows that although globalization offers bright prospects for the future, its advantages depend on establishing effective regulatory apparatuses that protect the vulnerable. The paper concludes that until these protections are set up, globalization can only be considered a mixed blessing.
From the Paper:"Those who trumpet the salutary benefits of globalization often argue that the increased flow of goods, materials, capital and human resources across permeable national borders facilitates an increased information exchange and allows developing countries to access - far more easily than was once the case - the technological innovations and advanced business practices of the developed world. More than that, those who credit globalization for many things insist that the economic, social and intellectual phenomenon that has come to dwarf all others in the last-quarter of the twentieth century (and now in the first few years of the twenty-first) has permitted developing nations (predominantly in the global south) to develop late-industrial or even post-industrial economies of their own - something which, it is frequently argued, can only lead to greater prosperity for everyone. A good example in support of such a stance would be the development of extractive industries in African nations and/or the development of a thriving IT sector in a nation such as India as western countries flood Foreign Direct Investment and technological tools into that land."
