Question description

Poverty and Inequality

As we have studied in previous units, there are benefits that globalization can bring to the world. It can bring awareness to human rights violations and work to end them. It can improve the economy of developing nations. It can make information and education more accessible to more people, particularly in developing countries. However, this process brings negative consequences as well. Does globalization have to have these negative consequences? Could these be changed or reversed? As you read through the articles this week, think about how you feel about these questions and concepts.
