Professor Ian Goldin explores globalisation, and asks how far the world is fragmenting politically and economically, and what the consequences of that could be.
Since around 1990, with the end of the Cold War, the opening of China, global agreements to reduce trade barriers and the development of the internet, there has been a dramatic acceleration of globalisation.
But its shortcomings are under the spotlight. Governments are making policy choices that protect their industries, and there?s a knock on effect on other countries and consumers around the world.
How can the challenges be addressed?
