Here is one hillarious video

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=4343898391323537541&hl=en

Why globalization does not work in India
Why globalization does not even work in America

(In some cases, his views are very similar to the ones of Stiglitz)

Globalization is a world society of two groups: the rich and pesants. The rich no longer need the middle class. Globalization is a new dark age we decend into.

What is globalization? Globalization is when the world becomes one huge, boring shopping mall. Globalization is when everything is from China. Globalization is when nothing unique is left in the world and stores in Paris, NY, Dubai, and Shanghai are mass-marketed chains, bland, and predictable, and when all the stores in those places are practically the same.

I have one example from France. One thing the French are good at is producing relatively small quantities of a product with very high quality. These small companies cannot compete in the globalized market. A small, private French dairy making high quality cheese has far greater costs than some massive dairy corporation in Argentina. And when grocery stores become big and globalized, they do not want to bother with small quantities because it is too costly for them, so no matter where you go, you get the same mass-marketed stuff.

See here is you want to know more about the anti-globalization movement: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-globalization

Globalization refers to the increasingly global relationships of culture, people, and economic activity.

Globalization is a relatively new term used to describe a very old process. It is a historical process that began with our human ancestors the free movement of goods, services and people across the world . In this article we discuss the meaning and importance of globalization.
