The Nature of Globalization
Globalization was the concept of the late 1990s and remains dominant today. It has come to pervade debates in the social sciences and to be used increasingly by politicians, including many on the left, as a justification for their policies. Governments of the left, according to this view, have no option but to abandon their traditional welfare state policies. Any attempt to resist globalization will eventually fail.
