Newberry Teachers' Consortium

“Globalization” is talked about by some as the savior of our economy and by others as a curse that is leading our economy into ruin. This seminar will explore what globalization is in both economic and social terms and what has been its effect on our economy and the world economy. We will discuss both the benefits and costs of globalization on our economy and whether or not our government should work to contain the forces of globalization, and if that is even possible. Will all jobs move to China? Does globalization contribute to the increasing income inequality in the US? How does trade help the economy? Do only the rich benefit from globalization? What has been the effect of globalization on social issues? These issues and the challenges of how we can successfully adapt to our future economy will be addressed during this seminar.
