Quotations on Globalization

“Globalization, as defined by rich people like us, is a very nice thing… you are talking about the Internet, you are talking about cell phones, you are talking about computers. This doesn’t affect two-thirds of the people of the world.” – Jimmy Carter

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 “Greed and globalization aren’t just America’s fault.”- Arlo Guthrie

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  “It has been said that arguing against globalization is like arguing against the laws of gravity.” – Kofi Annan

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       “Globalization is not just about changing relations between the ‘inside’ of the nation-state and the ‘outside’ of the international system. It cuts across received categories, creating myriad multilayered intersections, overlapping playing fields, and actors skilled at working across these boundaries. People are at once rooted and rootless, local producers and global consumers, threatened in their identities yet continually remaking those identities.” – Philip G. Cerny
