Week 2 – Cooper – Globalization
Views of Globalization
The Banker’s Boast - with the collapse of the soviet union and the market orientation of
Communist China, investments supposedly can go anywhere
-Pressure from the US , the IMF, and TNC’s br ings down national barr iers to the
movement of capital
-Gloablization is invoked time and time again to tell r ich countries to roll back the welfare
state and poor ones to reduce social expenditures – all in the name of the necessity of
competition in a globalized economy
The social democrats lament – it accepts the reality of globalization as the bankers see it but it
argues the opposite that it is not beneficial for humankind
the Dance of the Flows and the Fragments 0 this argument accepts much of the other two – the
reality of globalization in the present and its destabilizing effect on national societies—but makes
another move
-Rather than homogenize the world, globalization reconfigures the local – but not in a
spatially confined way
-Ppls exposures to media, are highly fragmented; bits of imagery are detached fr m their
context, inf luencing t he ppl
-The detachement of cultural symbolism frm spatial located ness paradoxically makes ppl
realize the value of their cultural particularity
-Hence a sentimental attachment to home by migrants who dont live there but contribute
money and energy to identity politics
Modernization theor ys central argument was that key elements of society varied together and
this clustering produced the movement fr m traditional to modern societie, rural to urban etc..
-The f laws of modernization theory para llel those of globalization
Capitalism in an atlantic spatial system – and beyond
Oceans, Continents and Intertwined Histories
-The atlantic system depended on the connection of vastly different systems of production
and power and had difference consequences for each point in the system
