Challenges to Globalization

This chapter is about the critics of the “doers” of globalization. A variety of concerns motivate these critics, but the common thread is the belief that the distribution of globalization's benefits is unbalanced and that this is the inevitable result of policies and processes that are undemocratic and, therefore, illegitimate. The critics want the doers to stop and talk. The doers dismiss the critics' concerns as unrelated to economic globalization or as misinformed and misguided; they want to keep doing as they have been doing. The chapter describes who the critics are, where they came from, what they want, and how economists, policymakers, and others might understand them better. The chapter concludes by asking whether there is any common ground between critics and defenders. Thus far, there has been some working together on issues related to the process of international economic policymaking. A commentary is also included at the end of the chapter.

Keywords:   alternative globalization movement, critics, doers, economic policy
