Econ 270- International economics – Week 1 Graph 1 Waves of globalization- The increasing importance of a political international economy Between 1870 and 1914- industrialization -Transportation use to be by wind and sale but after 1870, it was now done by steam which made travel faster and more reliable - Telegraph came about - There was also lowering of tariffs After World War 2:- - Great lower of tariffs- with GATT & WTO - now we use closed cargo transport which is basically the big metal containers and is technologically transported on the boat. This is now a lot less labor intensive, which made shipping a lot cheaper. After 1980’s:- - Places like china, Philippines, Thailand and brazil started to have a large population shift from rural to low end manufacturing. - Increase in outsourcing o Production o Service jobs (tech support) Article “Consensus crumbles” - Backlash against globalization o Gains from Free trade are large but extremely spread out through out the economy. (pro) o (con)lower skilled workers have the concentrated loss from freer trade therefore are a lot more vocal about it. - To be apart of a larger trade agreement, countries have to give up some rules or laws their country already has o Free trade agreement: Example is NAFTA o Customs Union:- If USA, Canada and Mexico had the same policy on the rest of the world. o Common market: if NAFTA also added free movement agreement where they allowed capital, products or workers were able to move in and out of the all the counties. o Economic Union:- If the 3 countries economic union had a decision making body all based in one place as the capital. - Trilemma:- You cant be more than 2 at the same time – Mr. Rodriks o Globally integrated o National sovereignty o Democratic - TPP- Trans pacific partnership o economic integration, the goal is to reduce tariffs, foster trade to promote economic growth . Note* the average American is against the TPP because…? The globalization of supply chains:- Meaning the production and distribution of products is more world wide thus leading to an increase in intermediate goods. Intermediate good- screens, batteries and parts that make up the iPhone. Things that help make up the final product. - USA:- their contribution to the iPhone production is the high tech design. America has a competitive advantage in high skilled jobs. There fore the increase in globalization of supply chain hurts parts of the US that is in the production industries or low skilled labor. - This increase in income inequality- there fore both the left and rightist in America are against TPP
