During the boom years of the 1990s, globalization emerged as the most significant development in our national life. With NAFTA and the Internet and big-box stores selling cheap goods from China, the line between national and international began to blur. — Noah Feldman

Globalization has redefined the competition for employment and incomes in the United States. Tradeoffs will have to be made between the two. — Michael Spence

Globalization Quotes By David Bornstein

Much of the criticism of economic globalization has centered on factory labor abuses. But the majority of the world's poor are not employed in factories; they are self-employed - as peasant farmers, rural peddlers, urban hawkers, and small producers, usually involved in agriculture and small trade in the world's vast "informal" economy . — David Bornstein

Globalization Quotes By Franklin Foer

Globalization Quotes By Milton Friedman

The Internet is the most effective instrument we have for globalization. — Milton Friedman

Globalization Quotes By Jeremy Rifkin

globalization, a grossly misnamed metaphor that disingenuously cloaked government deregulation and the privatization of public goods and services in the wrap of a new global "interconnectivity. — Jeremy Rifkin

Globalization Quotes By Jamie Dimon

But in general, as countries get wealthier, there's going to be more savings, which means you're going to have intermediation. So part of it is just the huge growth in wealth, and part of it was globalization - these companies, these clients getting much bigger and much more global. — Jamie Dimon

That's just globalization. It's got good sides as well. But scenes aren't allowed to develop on their own anymore. Everyone knows about everything. — Aphex Twin

Globalization Quotes By Wilhelm Reich

Race theorists, who are as old as imperialism itself, want to achieve racial purity in peoples whose interbreeding, as a result of the expansion of world economy, is so far advanced that racial purity can have meaning only to a numbskull. — Wilhelm Reich

Globalization Quotes By John L. Casti

The unfolding time for the end of globalization or a worldwide deflation is much longer, certainly measured in years, if not decades. — John L. Casti

Globalization Quotes By Anne Elizabeth Moore

Unfortunately, what anti-human trafficking NGOs [non-governmental organizations] really do is instead quite damaging: they normalize existent labor opportunities for women, no matter how low the pay, dangerous the conditions, or abusive an environment they foster. And they shame women who reject such jobs. — Anne Elizabeth Moore

Globalization Quotes By Cornel West

When we think of globalization we are thinking in part of structures and institutions that have been developed over time and that have allowed us to become more interdependent and interrelated. But the development, the extraordinary development, of those structures and institutions has not fundamentally transformed our humanity. We are still those animals with fears and anxieties and insecurities in the face of death and dread and disappointment and disease. — Cornel West

Globalization Quotes By Anne Elizabeth Moore

The phrase "global citizen" always gets tossed around with my work, and part of it is that, clearly, talking about being a global citizen is the only way we can talk about participating in globalization without feeling like assholes. — Anne Elizabeth Moore

Globalization Quotes By Victor Shamas

In an era of globalization, people recognize that they are part of a global society, but they have no idea how to make such a society work. So far, no unified vision or leadership has emerged to guide us in this endeavor. We have not yet found a way to expand the spiritual ideals of democracy so that they pertain to every human being, every animal, and every plant. Until we do, human civilization and the Earth's ecosystem will continue to be in peril. — Victor Shamas

Globalization Quotes By Bill Maher

I find that the world is changing much, much faster than I can even bitch about it. — Bill Maher

Globalization Quotes By Pope Francis

Too often we participate in the globalization of indifference. May we strive instead to live global solidarity. — Pope Francis

Globalization Quotes By Jared Diamond

Technology causes problems as well as solves problems. Nobody has figured out a way to ensure that, as of tomorrow, technology won't create problems. Technology simply means increased power, which is why we have the global problems we face today.
(Interview, Sierra Magazine, May/June 2005) — Jared Diamond

Globalization Quotes By Tarja Halonen

It is people who are the objects of globalization and at the same time its subjects. What also follows logically from this is that globalization is not a law of nature, but rather a process set in train by people. — Tarja Halonen

Globalization Quotes By Pankaj Mishra

In the modern world, nationalism remains a very important force. We delude ourselves into thinking that globalization has made all of that redundant and that everyone just wants to be like America. — Pankaj Mishra

Globalization Quotes By Richard Stallman

Globalizing a bad thing makes it worse. But globalizing a good thing is usually good. — Richard Stallman

Globalization Quotes By Amartya Sen

Globalization Quotes By Kofi Annan

We cannot wait for governments to do it all. Globalization operates on Internet time. Governments tend to be slow moving by nature, because they have to build political support for every step. — Kofi Annan

Globalization Quotes By Robert Reich

I mean, you hear the word 'globalization' over and over and over again. Globalization, globalization, globalization. Rarely has a word gone so directly from obscurity to meaninglessness without any intervening period of coherence. — Robert Reich

Globalization Quotes By Helen Keller

Militarism ... is the chief bulwark of capitalism. When it is that militarism is undermined, capitalism will fail. — Helen Keller

Globalization Quotes By Amartya Sen

Globalization can be very unjust and unfair and unequal, but these are matters under our control. It's not that we don't need the market economy. We need it. But the market economy should not have priority or dominance over other institutions. — Amartya Sen

Globalization Quotes By Vandana Shiva

I think we will become disenchanted with the glamour of globalization. — Vandana Shiva

Globalization Quotes By Narendra Modi

Globalization Quotes By Tom Standage

A billion hours ago, human life appeared on earth. A billion minutes ago, Christianity emerged. A billion seconds ago, the Beatles changed music. A billion Coca-Colas ago was yesterday morning. - Robert Goizueta, chief executive of the Coca-Cola Company, April 1997 — Tom Standage

Globalization Quotes By Arundhati Roy

The English-language press in India supports the project of corporate globalization fully. It has no time for dispossession and drought and farmers' debts, the ravages that the corporate globalization project is wreaking on the poor of India. So to suddenly turn around and condemn the riots is a typical middle-class response. Let's support everything that leads to the conditions in which the massacre takes place, but when the killing starts, you recoil in middle-class horror, and say, Oh, that's not very nice. Can't we be more civilized? — Arundhati Roy

Globalization Quotes By Mohamed ElBaradei

The globalization that has swept away the barriers to the movement of goods, ideas and people has also swept with it barriers that confined and localized security threats. — Mohamed ElBaradei

Globalization Quotes By Nelson Mandela

Where globalization means, as it so often does, that the rich and powerful now have new means to further enrich and empower themselves at the cost of the poorer and weaker, we have a responsibility to protest in the name of universal freedom. — Nelson Mandela

Globalization Quotes By Carl Grip

A problem with global reasons cannot effectively be met with local measures. — Carl Grip

Globalization Quotes By Eduardo Paes

Globalization has produced a new of level of interdependence among us. The economy and multinational supply chains do not abide by political boundaries. A computer ordered in Brazil is designed in California and assembled in several other countries. Economic integration was the first strong evidence of a new era. — Eduardo Paes

Globalization Quotes By Mohsin Hamid

Civilizations are illusions, but these illusions are pervasive, dangerous, and powerful. They contribute to globalization's brutality. They allow us, for example, to say that we believe in global free markets and, in the same breath, to discount as impossible the global free movement of labor; to claim that we believe in democracy and human equality, and yet to stymie the creation of global institutions based on one-person-one-vote and equality before the law. — Mohsin Hamid

Globalization Quotes By Stuart Townsend

I was really educating myself on the environment, but I didn't realize it was so connected to politics, connected to globalization. — Stuart Townsend

Globalization Quotes By Naomi Klein

Thomas Friedman, in his best-selling book The Lexus and the Olive Tree, declared that what happened in Asia wasn't a crisis at all. "I believe globalization did us all a favor by melting down the economies of Thailand, Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia, Mexico, Russia, and Brazil in the 1990s, because it laid bare a lot of rotten practices and institutions, — Naomi Klein

Globalization Quotes By Jack Welch

Globalization has changed us into a company that searches the world, not just to sell or to source, but to find intellectual capital - the world's best talents and greatest ideas. — Jack Welch

Globalization Quotes By Dan Lipinski

Reliable data on the outsourcing of American jobs is sorely missing from the debate on globalization. — Dan Lipinski

Globalization Quotes By Joseph S. Nye Jr.

Globalization has made national boundaries more porous but not irrelevant. Nor does globalization mean the creation of a universal community. — Joseph S. Nye Jr.

Globalization Quotes By Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono

In the era of globalization, everything is interconnected. A problem in one part of the world will definitely impact on other parts of the globe. Such phenomenon is also valid for defense and security context. A conflict in a state will bring implications in its neighboring countries or other countries extended in the same region. Therefore, collaborative efforts in tackling common defense and security problems are essentially required. — Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono

Globalization Quotes By Bruce Tulgan

We are living through the most profound changes in the economy since the Industrial Revolution. Technology, globalization, and the accelerating pace of change have yielded chaotic markets, fierce competition, and unpredictable staff requirements. — Bruce Tulgan

Globalization Quotes By John L. Casti

The process of globalization has now interconnected almost everything ranging from financial markets to transport networks to communication systems in a huge system that no one really understands. — John L. Casti

Globalization Quotes By Auliq Ice

Globalisation Means the whole world, not just some of us. — Auliq Ice

Globalization Quotes By Marge Piercy

It's the last great free-for-all robbery of everybody's earth. — Marge Piercy

Globalization Quotes By Ernst Junger

Fraternity means that the father no longer sacrifices the sons; instead the brothers kill one another. Wars between nations have been replaced by civil war. The great settling of accounts, first under national 'pretexts,' led to a rapidly escalating world civil war. — Ernst Junger

Globalization Quotes By Bernard Arnault

What we do in our group is the opposite of the bad effects of globalization. We produce in Italy and in France and we sell to China, when usually it's the opposite. — Bernard Arnault

Globalization Quotes By Graham Owen

He is fascinated by their lack of conventional hierarchy or structure and loves how the forces of capital have subverted plans to control and order space. — Graham Owen

Globalization Quotes By Peter Thiel

My own answer to the contrarian question is that most people think the future of the world will be defined by globalization, but the truth is that technology matters more. — Peter Thiel

Globalization Quotes By Noreena Hertz

I really believe in a globalist agenda, but globalization isn't just allowing companies to trade freely all over the world. It's about what types of rights and responsibilities come with that. — Noreena Hertz

Globalization Quotes By Subcomandante Marcos

In the cabaret of globalization, the state shows itself as a table dancer that strips off everything until it is left with only the minimum indispensable garments: the repressive force. — Subcomandante Marcos

Globalization Quotes By Timothy Garton Ash

As one looks back, one sees that the fall of the Berlin Wall opened the door to three developments - the Eurozone, which was crafted around German unification, the free movement of peoples within Europe, particularly people from the new democracies of Eastern Europe, and, more broadly, it opened the door to globalization. — Timothy Garton Ash

Globalization Quotes By Nassim Nicholas Taleb

What Erasmus called ingratitudo vulgi, the ingratitude of the masses, is increasing in the age of globalization and the Internet. — Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Globalization Quotes By Ofra Strauss

Globalization means that business strategy and business ethics cannot be separated from each other. — Ofra Strauss

Globalization Quotes By Nancy Snow

Current public diplomacy and foreign policy making reduces the role of American citizens to mere spectators. The USIA's model of democracy and the free market is promoted as the superpower version of economic globalization, packaged and ready for shipping to clients throughout the world. In this version, foreign capital flows freely while the movement of people, particularly the world's poor, is strictly controlled. Such a commercial package speaks first and foremost for government 'partners,' the Fortune 500 corporations, which are the primary beneficiaries as well as the bankrollers of the American political process. This is a packaged story of America that is incomplete and undemocratic. Where do workers and communities fit into the story? How do private citizens play a part in building dialogue across cultures? — Nancy Snow

Globalization Quotes By Jeremy Seabrook

Human rights are particularly cherished by the West, which has never acknowledged economic rights. Human rights mean freedom from politcal oppression, tyranny and abuse, while economic oppression, tyranny and abuse are built into the very structures of globalization. — Jeremy Seabrook

Globalization Quotes By Dominique Strauss-Kahn

We can't speak day after day about globalization without at the same time having in mind that ... we need multilateral solutions. — Dominique Strauss-Kahn

Globalization Quotes By Barack Obama

Instead of having a set of policies that are equipping people for the globalization of the economy, we have policies that are accelerating the most destructive trends of the global economy. — Barack Obama

Globalization Quotes By Christopher Hitchens

Every day one reads meretricious babble about 'globalization' and the abolition of frontiers, most of it amounting to little more than celebration of the worldwide availability of Wheel of Fortune. — Christopher Hitchens

Globalization Quotes By Jake Vander Ark

Someday they would discover that the stars were not sacred, but made from the same material as their bodies. They would learn it was the stars that created their worlds, that worlds created their minds, that minds created tools, and tools could create stars. Growing, sprawling, thriving until they too became masters of their own understanding, chasing enlightenment with the fervor of having nothing to lose, launching from their homelands like fireworks with glorious yellow tails. — Jake Vander Ark

Globalization Quotes By Jack Lule

One important theme of this book is that globalization and media are not abstract, unknowable, inevitable, inexorable forces of economics and technology. They are not out of the control of human hands. They have been and will be created by people. They are the result of human actions, or what academics call "human agency. — Jack Lule

Globalization Quotes By John Naisbitt

Globalization is a bottom-up phenomenon with all actions initiated by milions of individuals, the sum total of which is globalization. No one is in charge, and no one can anticipate what the sum of all the individual initiatives will be before the result manifest. A global economy can only be the result of spontaneous order. — John Naisbitt

Globalization Quotes By Tom Robbins

The international situation is desperate, as usual. — Tom Robbins

Globalization Quotes By Ralph Nader

The essence of globalization is a subordination of human rights, of labor rights, consumer, environmental rights, democracy rights, to the imperatives of global trade and investment. — Ralph Nader

Globalization Quotes By Amartya Sen

[Globalization] has enriched the world scientifically and culturally and benefited many people economically as well. — Amartya Sen

Globalization Quotes By John B. Larson

As all Americans head forward into the new reality globalization has created, they want leaders who will level with them and help level the playing field. — John B. Larson

Globalization Quotes By Robert D. Kaplan

Indeed, Chicago seems to have literally sucked the air out of Springfield: another case of American becoming a network of massive city-states more intimately interconnected with other continents than with their own hinterlands. It is in the merging with the rest of the world and global civilization that the forces of division come to the fore at home. Springfield: another small city that should inspire but doesn't. — Robert D. Kaplan

Globalization Quotes By Anita Roddick

The freedom that comes with globalization is freedom for the rich and powerful nations to further exploit and further marginalize those at the bottom of the social ladder. — Anita Roddick

Globalization Quotes By Zhang Xin

It is worthwhile to engage in something that is close to one's heart. I had a scholarship. So if I donate money to give brilliant Chinese students an opportunity to study abroad, then this embodies everything I believe in: education, globalization, social mobility. I am an example of social mobility. — Zhang Xin

Globalization Quotes By David Korten

In the US, most progressives start to see the differences between internationalism and economic globalization. — David Korten

Globalization Quotes By Eduardo Galeano

Globalization has considerably accelerated in recent years following the dizzying expansion of communications and transport and the equally stupefying transnational mergers of capital. We must not confuse globalization with "internationalism" though. We know that the human condition is universal, that we share similar passions, fears, needs and dreams, but this has nothing to do with the "rubbing out" of national borders as a result of unrestricted capital movements. One thing is the free movement of peoples, the other of money. — Eduardo Galeano

Globalization Quotes By Anna Sui

I think that fashion has become such a big business and with globalization we are on new territory at this point. We are not just designing for a country we are designing for a world now. — Anna Sui

Globalization Quotes By Evgeny Morozov

Information technology has been one of the leading drivers of globalization, and it may also become one of its major victims. — Evgeny Morozov

Globalization Quotes By John Sweeney

In its current form, globalization cannot be sustained. Democratic societies will not support it. Authoritarian leaders will fear to impose it. — John Sweeney

Globalization Quotes By Douglas Adams

An island, on the other hand, is small. There are fewer species, and the competition for survival has never reached anything like the pitch that it does on the mainland. Species are only as tough as they need to be, life is much quieter and more settled [..] So you can imagine what happens when a mainland species gets introduced to an island. It would be like introducing Al Capone, Genghis Khan and Rupert Murdoch into the Isle of Wight - the locals wouldn't stand a chance. — Douglas Adams

Globalization Quotes By Tom Standage

But an oft-heard complaint, as companies spread their tentacles around the world and compete on a global playing field, is that globalization is merely a new form of imperialism. — Tom Standage

Globalization Quotes By Lech Walesa

Irrespective of todays judgment and the price we had to pay in this generation, we were able to close an epoch of divisions, different blocs and borders, opening the way for an era of globalization. — Lech Walesa

Globalization Quotes By Maajid Nawaz

Ironically, xenophobic nationalists are utilizing the benefits of globalization. — Maajid Nawaz

Globalization Quotes By Israelmore Ayivor

The leader's commandment is made up of pledges to solve local and global problems, and not to create more problems to add to the existing ones. — Israelmore Ayivor

Globalization Quotes By Vandana Shiva

Gandhi's idea of swadeshi-that local societies should put their own resources and capacities to use to meet their needs as a basic element of freedom-is becoming increasingly relevant. We cannot afford to forget that we need self-rule, especially in this world of globalization. — Vandana Shiva

Globalization Quotes By Xi Jinping

As economic globalization gathers momentum, China and the United States have become highly interdependent economically. Such economic relations would not enjoy sustained, rapid growth if they were not based on mutual benefit or if they failed to deliver great benefits to the United States. — Xi Jinping

Globalization Quotes By Andrew Rojecki

The deeper and subtler effects of the economic dimension of globalization intensify the politics of insecurity. — Andrew Rojecki

Globalization Quotes By Kumar Mangalam Birla

To globalize for the sake of globalizing-as a matter of ego-is perilous. Expanding internationally is hard, risky work. Globalization is not just about putting up a plant. It's not about making an acquisition. It's much, much more. — Kumar Mangalam Birla

Globalization Quotes By Arundhati Roy

Globalization means standardization. The very rich and the very poor must want the same things, but only the rich can have them. — Arundhati Roy

Globalization Quotes By Franklin Foer

Globalization really is a concrete, fundamental fact in everybody's lives, and you really see that come to life in soccer stadiums. — Franklin Foer

Globalization Quotes By John J. Sweeney

Our task is not to make societies safe for globalization, but to make the global system safe for decent societies. — John J. Sweeney

Globalization Quotes By Peter Thiel

Globalization replaced technology as the hope for the future. Since the '90s migration "from bricks to clicks" didn't work as hoped, investors went back to bricks (housing) and BRICs (globalization). The result was another bubble, this time in real estate. — Peter Thiel

Globalization Quotes By Ronnie Apteker

Today, where you come from seems less and less important, as globalization is the new order. I prefer the old world. — Ronnie Apteker

Globalization Quotes By Jimmy Carter

Globalization, as defined by rich people like us, is a very nice thing ... you are talking about the Internet, you are talking about cell phones, you are talking about computers. This doesn't affect two-thirds of the people of the world. — Jimmy Carter

Globalization Quotes By Jimmy Carter

If you're totally illiterate and living on one dollar a day, the benefits of globalization never come to you. — Jimmy Carter

Globalization Quotes By Kenny Ausubel

The greatest weapon of mass destruction is corporate economic globalization. — Kenny Ausubel

Globalization Quotes By Omar Bongo

Globalization, far from putting an end to power diplomacy between States, has, on the contrary, intensified it. — Omar Bongo

Globalization Quotes By George W. Bush

Globalization has altered the dynamics in the White House, as well as between the White House and the Treasury. — George W. Bush

Globalization Quotes By C. JoyBell C.

To be an effective organisation, the structure of the organisation must be willing to adapt to a network model, leaving the old hierarchy model behind. We see the efficacy of the network model daily in many areas of our lives, and this greatly challenges the old from-top-to-down hierarchical model that many organisations have a hard time letting go of. But I suppose at the end of the day, it is a matter of survival. Simply put, in order to survive, one must adapt and to adapt today, means to take on a more networked approach to doing things in organisations, groups, companies and even in society as a whole (including politics). So in other words, in order for society in all of its forms from big to small, to move forward strongly, it must adapt to a framework that sees itself as a network rather than a hierarchy. — C. JoyBell C.

Globalization Quotes By Tony Osborg

It seems even more worrisome that the world has become even more integrated to the extent that a country that fails to produce its own basic consumables will end up consuming its whole income in outsourcing them. — Tony Osborg
