Globalization and its alternatives: antiglobalism, alterglobalism and the idea of sustainable development
AbstractThree alternative strategies concerning the development of humanity are discussed. These concepts were created in opposition to the globalization processes that are exerting a major influence on the modern world's free market economy. Antiglobalism is presented as a determined criticism of globalization, while alterglobalism indicates the importance of social sensibility towards globalization processes, and sustainable development reveals that a profound reconstruction of present economic and political structures is needed. However, all of these trends share a common purpose in the prosperity of mankind. Copyright © 2007 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd and ERP Environment.
