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 women’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?
