In Defense of Globalization: It Has a Human Face
Today, the principal focus of anti-globalizers is not the effect of globalization on economic prosperity but its harm to social agendas such as the reduction of child labour and poverty, the maintenance of rich-country labour and environmental standards, the exercise of national sovereignty, the maintenance of local culture, and womenâ€™s rights and welfare. The contrary view, which I defend in this essay, is that economic globalization advances the achievement of that social agenda. But we must ask: what institutional and policy framework is necessary to improve on the benign outcomes that globalization fetches?
