The military threat to globalization

Field, Alan M.
December 2006
Journal of Commerce (1542-3867);12/11/2006, Vol. 7 Issue 50, p6
The author dispels the belief that globalization was contrived by the U.S. to further its aims at the expense of the rest of the world. He cites that countless global companies are based and funded in Asia, Europe and Latin America. The greatest benefits from globalization are obtained during peace and not during war. Bringing countries peacefully into the global economy and not by invading them is the best way to transform them.
