Globalisation, economic freedom and strategic decision-making: A role for public policy?

David Bailey, Alex De Ruyter

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

People around the globe are more connected to each other than ever before. Information and money flow more quickly than ever. Goods and services produced in one part of the world are increasingly available to the rest of the world. International travel is more frequent. International communication is commonplace. This phenomenon has been titled "globalization." "The Era of Globalization" is fast becoming the preferred term for describing the current times. Just as the Depression, the Cold War Era, the Space Age, and the Roaring 20's are used to describe particular periods of history, globalization describes the political, economic, and cultural atmosphere of today.

While some people think of globalization as primarily a synonym for global business, it is much more than that. The same forces that allow businesses to operate as if national borders did not exist also allow social activists, labor organizers, journalists, academics, and many others to work on a global stage.

This new book brings together recent important research in the field from around the world.
