9 features

Globalization has many features in common with the theory of

o ndustrialization altered the natre of state, widening its
responsibilities and weakening its control
There are similarities with the arguments that economic growth followed a
pattern in all economies as they went through industrialization.
Literature: nature of economic interdependence, the role of transnational
actors, cobweb model of World politics. They tend to be applied more to
the developed World.
Marshall mcluhan: global village. Time and space become compressed to
such and extent that everything lost its traditional identity.

Chapter 2 Globalization

o The demise of the sovereign nation-state as global forces undermine
the ability f governments to control or manage their own economies
and societies
o States and geopolitics remain the principal agents and forces
shaping World politics today.
o Both are exaggerate their arguments
o The distinction between domestic and international affairs is no
longer very meaningfull


Streching of social, political and economic activities across political

The intensification of interconnectedness in almost every sphere of social
The accelerating pace of global interactions and processes
The growing extensity, intensity and velocity of global interactions


The intensification of worldwide social relations which link distant localities

in such a way that local happenings are shaped by events occurring many
miles away and vice versa.
The integration of the World economy
De-territorialization or the growth of supranational relations between
Time-space compression


By comparison with the period 1870 to 1914, the World is much less
globalized economically, politically and culturally
The contemporary World is marked by intensifying geopolitics,
regionalization and internationalization, rather than by globalization
The vast bulk of international economic and political activity is
concentrated within the group of OECD states
By comparison with the hayday of European global empires, the majority of
the worlds population and countries in the South are now much less
integrated into global system.
Geopolitics, state power, nationalism and territorial boundaries are of
growing not reducing, significance in World politics

Globalization is at best a self-serving myth or conceptual folly that

conceals the significance of western capitalism and US hegemony in
shaping contemporary World politics.
Responses to the financial crisis demonstrate the centrality of hegemonic
and national power to the effective functioning of the World economy
