Explaining Threshold Effects of Globalization on Poverty: An Institutional Perspective

  • Chapter

Part of the Studies in Development Economics and Policy book series (SDEP)

Abstract

Globalization and poverty represent broad, multidimensional concepts which refer to phenomena that transform themselves across space and time. The literature on the impacts of globalization on poverty points to highly variable outcomes, both positive and negative, as well as multiple causalities, channels and mechanisms that link globalization and poverty. Studies observe different results depending on the channels, historical period, and the region or country considered. As is known, the inconclusive or variable character of these findings is a matter of intense debate, as are the concepts of globalization and poverty themselves.
