Globalization and the Reproduction of Hierarchy by Chantal Thomas

Over the past decade, the federal government has increasingly taken steps to lift barriers to trade and financial flows into and out of the United States. This liberalization of U.S. economic barriers has been mirrored by similar efforts of governments around the world. These steps, together with gains in technology, have ushered in an era of “globalization.”‘ The global liberalization of economic flows, according to classical economic theory, should maximize the efficient allocation of world resources and generate benefits for all. Even if globalization brings increased aggregate gains, however, it is not clear that the distribution of those gains accords with social justice. Without intervention, globalization may instead lead to increased socioeconomic inequality and economic volatility.
