The term globalization is synonymous with international trade and integration of economies through multi-national agreements. According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary (2013) globalization is defined as “the development of an increasingly integrated global economy marked especially by free trade, free flow of capital, and the tapping of cheaper foreign labor markets”. Although many disagree as to origin of the idea of globalization, it’s been prevalent in shaping the world economy since the 19th century. O’Rourke and Williamson (1999) note how this ideology has indeed driven international economic policy since the 1980s, as the influence and power of multi-national companies grew exponentially along with the spread of capitalism throughout the world. European and U.S. economies have drastically been influenced by globalization.
It also incorporates the idea of the inconsistent trinity, (sovereign monetary policy, fixed exchange rate and free capital flow) where only two of these can be possible at any given time. The impact of globalization on the effectiveness of monetary policy is now at the center of international macroeconomics literature with the recent experience of inflation accelerating the large number of industrial and emerging market countries (Özatay & Özmen, 2008).

Even though this may suggest that globalization has been able to combat the nature of inflation mistakes by central banks could allow it to break out again. (The Economist, 2005).
Introduction In States vs. Markets, Herman Schwartz presents two economic development strategies that have been employed by late industrial developers in order to either take advantage of existing comparative advantages or facilitate rapid industrial growth through state intervention and provision in order to gain a competitive foothold in world markets. Schwartz demonstrates how China was able to employ elements of these development strategies to generate capital from an abundant rural labour supply in order to pursue industrial development and attract foreign investment through economic reform starting in the late 1970's. This paper will illustrate the theoretical framework of Ricardian and Kaldorian Development strategies and outline historical details of China's economic reforms since the late 1970's. Schwartz's framework will then be applied to examine how China employed Ricardian elements of comparative advantages to, initially, shift towards Kaldorian development strategies to overcome Gerschenkronian collective action problems and promote industrial growth and foreign investment. This essay will examine Schwartz's assessment that China faces Kaldorian collective action problems typical of late developers in order to illustrate the China's present and future economic development challenges.

This book has made me question the long term sustainability of the already evolving economic globalization process. Rodrik explains that the process of globalization must be managed so that the entire world can benefit. The first point that Rodrik makes is that markets are limited by the scope of governance or regulation. He argues that markets and governments are most effective when they are operating in accordance with one another. This theory seems to stem from a theory earlier developed by the famous economist Adam Smith, which was that “the division of labor is limited by the extent of the market.” Rodrik expands on this theory by saying that not only is labor limited by the market, but that markets are limited by government.
These alliances are not only with domestic companies but they also go over national lines. Companies are pushing for integration of the world economy in hope for increased profits and governments are beginning to listen. Since 1986 (GATT) General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade have taken the incitive to move towards the liberalization of international trade. GATT members agreed to reduce tariff and non-tariff trade barriers. From 1986 to the present due to GATT's lead many markets have been open to the United States increasing exports and increasing efficiency through competition.
Globalization is the new notion that has come to rule the world since the nineties of the last century with the end of the cold war. The frontlines of the state with increased reliance on the market economy and renewed belief in the private capital and assets, a process of structural alteration encouraged by the studies and influences of the World Bank and other International organisations have started in many of countries. Also Globalisation has brought in new avenues to developing countries. Greater access to developed country markets and technology transfer hold out promise improved productivity and higher living standard. Countries around the world have closer over past few decades due to growing integration between economies.
foreign banks). Banking has gradually become more globalized, which leads towards advances in communications and technology, economic integration. Especially, foreign bank entry has increased sharply in the last few decades, which helped different nations in the development of their financial system. Foreign banks also helped the economies in financial crisis to deal with it and also helped in the establishment and restructuring of their financial system after that crisis. Many studies have taken out on this issue, i.e.

The year also marked the company's restructuring of its sales and distribution channels.

As one of the emerging economies of the world, China plays an important role in the global market economy as an export-oriented country and with an emphasis in manufacturing industry it is identified as the world's factory in the past few decades. Due to increasing domestic demand and fluctuant international financial condition, the role of China in contemporary international trade is changing subtly. China is at the point of economic transformation, and as a main force of the international market China's motion will stir up opportunities for a new era. My economic background and previous experiences intrigue my interests in international trade and economy development.
