What is globalization? (thoughts) process of extending social relations across world-space arise from the movements of people, things and ideas internationalization or integration

What it actually is? A process which diminishes the necessity of a common and shared territorial basis for social, economic, and political activities, processes and relations. It is deterritorialization Jan Aart Scholte It is not: internationalization, liberalization, westernization.

Economic and financial globalization and the expansion of world trade have brought substantial benefits to countries around the world. But the current financial crisis has put globalization on hold, with capital flows reversing and global trade shrinking. The dramatic collapse in world trade in 2008 seems to have resulted from strongly synchronized drops in trade across countries due to the combined effects of several factors: the credit crunch, the spread of global value chains, and falling consumer and producer confidence.


recent economic crisis has underscored the power of globalisation but has also shown the vulnerability of the global economic system. Global linkages have increased the economic interdependence between countries and this facilitated the spread of the crisis. What started as a financial crisis in the United States turned rapidly into a global economic crisis, leading to a dramatic collapse of international trade and foreign direct investment.

It is useful to think about three dimensions of the inter-relation between financial globalisation and the global crisis. 1. First, did financial globalisation materially contribute to the origination of the global financial crisis? 2. Second, once the crisis occurred, how did financial globalisation affect the incidence and propagation of the crisis across different countries? 3. Third, how has financial globalisation affected the management of the crisis at national and international levels?

The OECD Strategic Response to the financial and economic crisis The OECD Strategic Response, which was developed with the collective inputs of the OECD Council, the Committees and the Secretariat, aims both to address the crisis and to seize the opportunity to build a stronger world economy. For decades, the OECD has advised Member countries and helped coordinate their policies. The Organisations coverage of a wide range of policy issues directly relevant to the current crisis and its focus on medium-term responses and long-term solutions to policy challenges are unique strengths.
