Globalization Section this Week

In class stuff on April 20, 2009 at 10:24 AM

This week we will be wrapping up the Globalization section with a discussion of the regulation of cross border policy issues. We will address the challenges of achieving policy outcomes across sovereign states in the absence of a global government, and amidst the reality of international economic competition and the quest for economic competitiveness.


Depending on how much time we have, we will discuss challenges in labor and climate change as examples.


The readings for this week are:



(E) The Golden Straight Jacket

(E) Globalization: Crisis of Regulation or Crisis of Capital?

(E) Susan M Collins, “Economic Integration and the American Worker”

Chapters 3 & 6 from “Making Globalization Work” by Joseph Stiglitz (focus on the trade, labor and climate discussions)
