Quoted from Backing Up Globalization with Military Might The world is becoming more globalized, there is no doubt about that. While that sounds promising, the current form of globalization, neoliberalism, free trade and open markets are coming under much criticism.
The interests of powerful nations and corporations are shaping the terms of world trade.
In democratic countries, they are shaping and affecting the ability of elected leaders to make decisions in the interests of their people.
Elsewhere they are promoting narrow political discourse and even supporting dictatorships and the stability that it brings for their interests. This is to the detriment of most people in the world, while increasingly fewer people in proportion are prospering.
The western mainstream media, hardly provides much debate, gladly allowing this economic liberalism a largely, but not only, politically conservative stance to be confused with the term political liberalism to do with progressive and liberal social political issues. Margaret Thatcher's slogan of there is no alternative rings sharply.
Perhaps there is no alternative for such prosperity for a few, but what about a more equitable and sustainable development for all?
With the resulting recession, many governments of the wealthiest nations in the world have resorted to extensive bail-out and rescue packages for the remaining large banks and financial institutions while imposing harsh austerity measures on themselves.
Some of the bail-outs have also led to charges of hypocrisy due to the apparent socializing of the costs while privatizing the profits. Furthermore, the institutions being rescued are typically the ones got the world into this trouble in the first place.
For smaller businesses and poorer people, such options for bail out and rescue are rarely available when they find themselves in crisis. Taxpayers bailed out their banks and financial institutions with large amounts of money.
Even the high military spending figures are dwarfed by the bailout plans to date. This problem could have been averted in theory as people had been pointing to these issues for decades.
However, during boom, very few want to hear such pessimism. Does this crisis spell an end to the careless forms of banking and finance and will it herald a better economic age, or are we just doomed to keep forgetting history and repeat these mistakes in the future? Signs are not encouraging as rich nations are resisting meaningful reform… A Primer on Neoliberalism Last updated Sunday, August 22, Global trading that allows all nations to prosper and develop fairly and equitably is probably what most people would like to see.
Neoliberalism is touted as the mechanism for this. But what is neoliberalism, anyway? While internationalism and equitable global trading allowing fair development is probably what most people would like to see, the current model of corporate-led free trade and its version of globalization that has resulted, has come under criticism by many, many NGOs, developing nation governments and ordinary citizens.
The World Trade Organization, WTOis the primary international body to help promote free trade, by drawing up the rules of international trade.
However, it has been mired in controversy and seen to be hijacked by rich country interests, thus worsening the lot of the poor, and inviting protest and intense criticism.The damage to health, physical growth and brain development of children affected by chronic under-nutrition—stunting in the first two years—is often irreversible, impairing them for life and leaving them with lower chances of finishing school and becoming highly-productive adults.
