    Globalization, Poverty and Inequality. Unlike a policy that tries to minimize poverty or minimize inequality, the objective of maximizing the quintile income has a natural dynamism, because it is a moving target. In a country with gross inequalities, this measure will suggest that we focus on the conditions of the poorest people. This book analyzes the issues surrounding globalization and explores the prospects of the global economy, as well as the potential vulnerabilities. Issues covered include trade agreements, poverty and inequality, financial globalization, the environment, international economic law and threats to the future of globalization.

    Many of the studies in Globalization and Poverty in fact suggest that globalization has been associated with rising inequality, and that the poor do not always share in the gains from trade. Other themes emerge from the book. One is that the poor in countries with an abundance of unskilled labor do not always gain from trade reform. Poverty, the contributors show here, has been used as a popular and convenient catchphrase by parties on both sides of the globalization debate to further their respective arguments. Globalization and Poverty provides the more nuanced understanding necessary to move that debate beyond the slogans.

    Abstract. Globalization 1 has become the way to describe changes in international economy and in world politics. Economists define it as the free movement of goods, services, labour and capital across borders. Globalization is the result of reduced transportation and communication costs, lower trade barriers, faster communication, rising capital flows, increased competition, standardization Cited by:   Globalization is creating fresh opportunities for hundreds of millions of people. But the gap between richest and poorest countries is widening and inequality within many countries is increasing. CGD president Nancy Birdsall will testify this week before a U.S. congressional committee on policies for fair growth in Latin America, where inequality, long a problem, is getting.
