Globalization Week 4 Lecture Notes 2/9/16 In 1944 the Bretton Woods conference was held to decide upon the international rules of trade and economic globalization. In the 1980’s, neoliberalism emerged as a type of capitalism that focused on union busting, total deregulation, the force of supply and demand, privatization, and cutting taxes. The Argentinian economic collapse was an example of the negative effects of neo liberalism in how deregulation allowed big corporation to invest large amounts of money that supported their economy and then they pulled out all of their money causing the economy to collapse. The structural adjustments policy used as a requirement for loans through the World Bank is a negative policy for thirdworld and developing countries because they do not have the infrastructure to make the adjustments required to get a loan that will help them. TNC’s or MNC’s are multinational corporations which are companies with many different offices of operations or headquarters in different countries. The decline of the city of Detroit is another example of the negative effects of neo liberalism and economic globalization especially on the middle class due to the offshoring and technological progress of the automotive industry that supported Detroit. Offshoring is the practice of moving business processes or services to another country to reduce costs. rd Outsourcing is when a 3 party is contracted to do work for cheaper. Technological Progress contributes to the polarization of the workforce because new technology enabled more productivity at the expense of midlevel jobs. This contributes to the shrinking of the middle class. Effects on wages, employment, inequality, and poverty include the threat of offshoring if employees attempt to strike for fair treatments which keeps global unions weak, the workers have to compete with overseas wages which forces wages to be lower, more competition for lowincome jobs drives wages down, each country’s desire to attract investment of companies keeps policy highly deregulated with low taxes, corporations have pushed governments to lower taxes by threating to move abroad, only richest have benefited while middle class, working class, and poor incomes have stagnated or have become worse. Trickledown effect has not worked because the rich get richer and spend less money on things that stimulate economy and more money on assets to make other rich people/companies richer too.
