OECD Insights: Economic Globalisation

Origins and Consequences

By Jean-Yves Huwart and Loïc Verdier

Does globalization boost development or worsen inequality? Does it generate employment or destroy jobs? Does it damage the environment or offer means to preserve it? Does it cause financial instability or make investment more efficient?

Economic Globalisation discusses these questions in relation to the recent financial crisis as well as the history of global economic integration. It examines how the accelerating interconnectedness of markets and national economies is affecting us all and assesses how globalization is evolving in the light of recent events.
