In Search of An Equitable, Sustainable Globalization: The Bittersweet Dilemma

Synopsis

Globalization is often described as "Darwinism on steroids" and is a force to be reckoned with. Its goal to improve the economic status of underdeveloped areas of the world is noble enough, but left unchecked, globalization is not always fair and equitable in its practices and outcomes. This widens the gap between rich and poor nations. Samli argues that Third World countries must learn to take advantage of globalization and learn to protect themselves against its darker forces.
