Show Summary Details


Modern globalization has been a recognized force around the world for at least three decades. Academic journals, newspapers, television specials, and political discourse are dominated by globalization events, and their impact seems to be ubiquitous. For most it is a good force, but for a very angry minority it appears to be a bad one. This introductory chapter begins with a discussion of the meaning of the term globalization, and what is included in economists' agenda when they debate globalization issues. An overview of the subsequent chapters is then presented.

Keywords: globalization; force; economists
