Why globalization works
Martin Wolf explores the critical aspects of globalization and rejects criticisms against the gains of globalization. In this text, Martin offers insight into the fundamental assumptions and common misconceptions held against globalization. In fact, he asserts that despite overwhelming criticisms fashioned against globalization, the developing world has significantly made steps due to the same. It is worth to make informed augments through scholarly support, existing data and critical observation of the world’s socio-economic and political trend. The question, therefore, focuses on the validity of Martin’s claim that globalization can work.
Discussion of globalization captures the economic strides that developing nations have made versus the expansive industrialization of developed world. The epicenter of the debate remains the size of economic development gap between developing economies and the industrialized world. Besides, economic factors that characterize globalization are pointed out to ease understanding of the underlying concepts. The political influence and social restructuring that is experienced across the world is all recipe for globalization. In essence, Martin notes that the criticisms are derived from the complex relationship that exists among, politics, society and globalization. The views of Martin are supported by observed actions across the world and enlist the work of other authors on the same issue. In that regard, the sensitivity of globalization and its effect so far is portrayed.
