Overcoming Truncatedness

Show Summary Details


Economic globalization refers to the integration of different regional markets into a world market. In this context, goods and services are exchanged at the local community or neighbourhood level. Such a market arises because individuals and households engage in this exchange. The interdependencies between households results in division of labour and specialization, thus enhancing market efficiency and improving economic gains. The same principle underlies the exchange of goods and services between nations. This chapter explores the relationship between openness and economic development and how globalization can be harnessed to achieve development. It discusses market efficiency and market expansion as well as the link between globalization and economic growth.

Keywords: globalization; economic development; market efficiency; market expansion; goods and services; openness; world market
