    As multilateral flows of trade, investment, and technology increase and more companies are drawn into global industri- al networks of production, research, finance, and distribution, more firms are able to exploit the special competencies and technologies of an ever larger number of world-class national technical enterprises.   Globalization is a term used to describe how trade and technology have made the world into a more connected and interdependent place. Globalization also captures in its scope the economic and social changes that have come about as a result.

    Ben Wildavsky, one of the chief cheerleaders of this view, wrote in his book The Great Brain Race: How Global Universities Are Reshaping the World that “in the worlds of business and culture, the globalization trend is so well known as to be cliché. But a lesser-known phenomenon, the globalization of universities, is equally important. International Trade Organization International trade theories play a major role in globalization. Free trade is an example of the international trade theory. Free trade is “where a government does not attempt to influence through quotas or duties what its citizens can buy from another country or what they can produce and sell to another.

    Globalization is an emerging trend in business. Here you will learn the definition of globalization, examine its positive and negative effects, and be presented with real examples of globalization. Reviews and endorsements: “This book is essential reading for anyone interested in globalization and development. It provides important new insights and perspectives into how global flows of finance, trade, migrants, and ideas shape development and advances the debate by identifying urgently needed policy changes for a more inclusive globalization.”.
