Description

This paper will examine the historical rise of America as the central global player in the late 19th and 20th century, and then try to assess its current role in the global market place. Though the focus is on the United States, the analysis will also reveal the core features of globalization, and lead to the larger debate about globalization- its promises and perils. Is globalization primarily an exploitative process, or is it a force for wealth creation, raising the standard of living of previously economic underdogs? It will be further argued that, through American influence, the global economic system has developed in a new direction, specifically what has been termed the "financialization" of world markets. The result is that global economic elites have prospered enormously, while the rest of the world's population has seen loses rather than net gains.
