Will and the World Globalization is an historical and cultural process. It is the result of human innovation, technological progress, and economic expansion. It refers to the increasing integration of economies, cultures, and values, particularly through trade and financial growth. Globalization remains one of the hottest "buzzwords" of the day. We hear it daily on television, in newspapers, and in public discourse. Critics blame globalization for impoverishing the poor, and enriching the rich. Supporters see it as the "magic bullet" to cure the cancers of an industrialized economy. Livelyhood's "Planet Work 1 & 2" specials offer an inside look into how globalization is affecting individuals, corporations and communities across the world.
