The paper examines the politics and economics of globalization and shows how poverty and inequality are a result of globalization. The paper discusses how wealthy countries profit from the poor countries and countries themselves have a dual economy of the rich growing wealthier and the poor, poorer.

Concluding Remarks

From the Paper:

"Globalization has been held up as a result of technological and other inter-connectedness. One sees much reference to progress and to a so-called Global Village. However, when globalization is examined with attention to its political and economic realities one recognizes a close to imperial project of participating powers that gain in ways that tend to benefit classes with access to capital while disadvantaging proletarian and deprived groups. It is argued that globalization has weakened the boundaries of the nation-state but, in different ways, one sees that actually the citizen's position can be very much weakened according to his or her location within nation-states that do prevail."
