Globalization has done a tremendous disservice to those that seek to create wealth and resource equality. Globally it has created a system where as the counties with access to strong markets, copious resources, and relatively educated populations will succeed, while those countries that lag behind in categories such as those willhave a difficult time maintaining in the global economic system. Specifically in the United States globalization has created a system of increasing income inequality.
Globalization has done a lot over the past hundreds of years to influence income and wealth inequality in the United States.

It is the reason some people in the world are as wealthy as they are. Starting years ago during the industrial revolution up until now globalization has caused major changes.
the Causality of Inequality from Stiglitz’ The Price of Inequality The United States is experiencing a great divide. The middle class is dividing into two groups, those who are incredible rich and those who struggle to afford necessities of life. This concentrates a large percentage of the country’s wealth into the hands of a small percentage of people. In Joseph Stiglitz’ book, The Price of Inequality, many claims are made giving reason to the growing inequality in the United States. Among those reasons
Globalization Globalization is a result of each country around the world, depending on one another for certain products as well as needing them to buy specific exports. Without it, no country can flourish and with it, there will always be inequality. It is something that is vital to our country as well as those around the world. The risk of inequality is outweighed by the possible benefits of globalization. After World War II, the United States began rebuilding itself and the economy. Along with

This is evidenced by the income inequality that exists between the Global North and the Global South. So the question then arises of what can be
Globalization, for it or against it, this is a topic you cannot escape. The influences of globalization are impacting every country around the world. Fred Hu and Michael Spence wrote "Why Globalization Stalled: And How to Restart It" published in the July/August 2017 issue of Foreign Affairs. They argue that globalization is a necessary evil that needs to be addressed on many levels to create a sustainable global order that meets the needs multilaterally.

terms in which you look at globalization, it may or may not perpetuate global inequality.

Opinion: Globalization is good for the U.S. • Lower Consumer Prices Increased Purchasing Power for the Poor Globalization is often cited as a harbinger of income equality. We are currently in the midst of what is known as Globalization 2.0 or the second wave of globalization. Globalization 2.0 has been occurring at much more massive scale than the first wave and at a much more rapid pace. That being said, official statistics show that income inequality has risen spectacularly as measured by official
Globalization is mainly driven by two factors: reduced costs in communication and transportation in the private sector and reduced policy barriers regarding investment and trade in the public sector (Frankel). While globalization was intended to be a beneficial concept, major backlash has arisen relating to it. For the most part, this dislike is centered around two main concepts: economy and immigration. I believe that this backlash against globalization is more due to the economic side, whereas
